Nutrition in Today’s and Tomorrow’s Society | Ramón de Cangas

Nutrition as a Pillar of Health

Ramón de Cangas, a distinguished expert in nutrition and dietetics, shares his vision on the importance of a balanced diet and its impact on our physical and mental health.

The Nutritional Revolution in the Field

Ramón discusses nutrition and the prevention of diseases, which is crucial. According to the World Health Organization, a healthy diet can prevent up to 80% of premature coronary heart diseases and 90% of type 2 diabetes (Source: [WHO](https://www.who.int/news-room/fact-sheets/detail/healthy-diet)).

Nutrition and Mental Health

Ramón highlights the connection between diet and mental health, emphasizing the role of gut microbiota. Recent studies suggest that dietary changes can alter the microbiota and, therefore, affect mental health (Source: [Harvard Health](https://www.health.harvard.edu/blog/nutritional-psychiatry-your-brain-on-food-201511168626)).

Diversity in Diets and Eating Habits

Discussing veganism and intermittent fasting, Ramón points out the need to personalize diets according to individual needs. The Mayo Clinic reports that a balanced diet, tailored to personal requirements, is essential for good health (Source: [Mayo Clinic](https://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/nutrition-and-healthy-eating/basics/nutrition-basics/hlv-20049477)).

Diet and Chronic Diseases

The relationship between diet and chronic diseases is a critical aspect. A study published in “The Lancet” reveals that a poor diet is responsible for more deaths globally than smoking (Source: [The Lancet](https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(19)30041-8/fulltext)).

The Importance of Proper Nutrition

Ramón concludes by emphasizing the importance of proper nutrition to maintain good overall health, both physically and mentally. Integrating a balanced and personalized diet is key to preventing diseases and promoting a healthy lifestyle.
