“The traditional approach is not suitable for the current generation of diseases that are linked to nutrition to solve”, says the Australian nutrition David Raubenheimer and Stephen Simpson. “These diseases are mainly caused by excessive diet, the eagerness for food with certain flavors, and the marketingtrucs of the packaged food industry people in the direction of that kind of food push”, say the scientists.

With their model, that they ‘nutritional geometry’, and the culmination of twenty years of scientific research on nutrition, the researchers could take into account a mix of nutrients and other elements that affect health. The model focuses much less on one single isolated nutrient such as fats or carbohydrates than that in the past more was the case.

“Our approach leaves a lot more to food, meals, diets, and dieetpatronen as a whole to view, and to discover how the health of people affect and cause diseases,” says co-author David Raubenheimer.

According to the scientists, this will approach health professionals, nutritionists and researchers to better help with the issues around obesity. (IPS/EK)
