The world faces a global nutrition crisis, most clearly evidenced by the twin pandemics of obesity and type 2 diabetes T2DM. Yet, substantial confusion and controversy exist about optimal dietary priorities and policy approaches to address these challenges. This paper reviews the evolution of nutritional evidence, emerging areas and corresponding policy lessons to address obesity and T2DM. This includes the complexity of diet—health pathways for long-term weight maintenance and metabolic health; a need to focus on both increasing protective foods for example, minimally processed, phytochemical-rich foods and reducing detrimental factors for example, refined starches, added sugars and processed meats ; and critical assessment of popular diets for weight-loss and metabolic health. Emerging evidence highlights areas for further research, including those related to food processing, non-nutritive sweeteners, emulsifiers, the microbiome, flavonoids and personalized nutrition. The food system also exacerbates diet-related health disparities, creating a vicious cycle of illness, poor work and school performance, and stunted potential 4. The scope of these health, economic, equity and sustainability impacts are staggering—yet have remained under-recognized or accepted as status quo by governments, the public, health systems and businesses. This lack of prioritization is, however, rapidly changing—at least partly driven by recognition of the escalating health and economic costs of diet-related obesity and type 2 diabetes T2DM. Since , the number of adults with obesity has increased from million to million worldwide; and with T2DM, from million to million 9, This is a global phenomenon: not a single nation worldwide has experienced a decline in obesity or T2DM; prevalence of T2DM in Japan 8.
Foreign aid can subsidize a less capable state and allow globally government to carry whole its duties when they normally cannot. In contrast, the randomized low-fat intervention obesity not reduce onset of T2DM or diets insulin resistance over 8. Consuming food sugars increases the risk of dental caries tooth decay.
