Since a long time ago, human has acknowledged the health benefits of foods. However, with the development of chemical drugs and pills, we have forgotten that the food we eat are directly linked to our health. We are nothing but what we eat. We think we make food, but practically our food has made us what we are..right from the conception to birth and further during growth, each nutrient plays important role in our development. Our cells, DNAs, tissues, organs .....whole body is made up of nutrients. So if there is any imparement in our body, body obviously will respond to food first rather than artifical drungs and pills.

Having any doubt or question?? ask me anything regarding food, nurition and dietetics.
