Issues related to nutrition are among the most pressing public health concerns in modern times. Worldwide, nearly 1 billion individuals are undernourished, with over a billion more individuals deficient in protein or one or more essential micronutrients. Malnutrition plays a role in in more than half of all childhood deaths. Effects of malnutrition include mortality, decreased economic productivity, morbidities, such as blindness and stunting, and development of chronic diseases. Conversely, overnutrition has emerged as current and growing threat to the world's health. Two-thirds of adults in the United States are overweight or obese, and 35 percent of the world's population are overweight. Two-thirds of the world's population living in countries where more people die from overnutrition than undernutrition. Chronic diseases are similarly of concern, with heart disease, cancer, and other diet-related chronic diseases among the leading causes of death in the world.
