Healthier Lives Through Scientific Discovery in Food, Nutrition and Diet

Our diet is one of the few modifiable factors affecting our risk for several chronic diseases. Yet as recently as 2017, it was estimated that nearly 25% of deaths worldwide were directly related to sub-optimal diets. Research shows foods can differentially affect the health and nutrient status of individuals, creating a need for personalized nutrition recommendations. The Foods for Health Research Initiative provides the framework to develop new collaborations and innovative approaches needed to address these complex issues.
