Nutrition Transition in India-Energy Related Issues
AbstractThe World Health Report 2002 introduced the term "risk transrtion' to describe the changes in consumption of tobacco, alcohol, nutrition and other lifestyles that promote the development of noncommunicable diseases. Five patterns of the nutrition transition have generally been described: that of collecting food, a pattern of recurrent famine, receding famine, 6 phase of degenerative disease and a phase of behavioral change. The phase of degenerative disease is associated with a shift in dietary patterns to more 'western' diets rich in saturated fat, refined foods and sugar and low in fibre and leads to an increase in non communicable diseases (NCD).
