Nutrition Epidemiology

\r\n Nutritional epidemiology is one of the younger disciplines in epidemiology. Limitations in Nutrition Epidemiology Research may be partially due to the difficulties in measuring diet as an exposure. Diet and physical activity are arguably the most difficult exposures to assess in observational research and are plagued by considerable measurement error. There were 925 million undernourished people in the world in 2010, an increase of 80 million since 1990, despite the fact that the world already produces enough food to feed everyone (7 billion people).Malnutrition, defined as underweight, is a serious public health problem that has been linked to a substantial increase in the risk of mortality and morbidity. Women and young children bear the brunt of the disease burden associated with malnutrition. In Africa and South Asia, 27−51% of women of reproductive age are underweight and it is predicted that about 130 million children will be underweighting in 2005 (21% of all children). Many of the 30 million low-birth-weight babies born annually (23.8% of all births) face severe short-term and long-term health consequences.
