[Perspectives] Your digital nutritionist
We are all the descendants of people who for hundreds of millennia spent their days doing primarily one thing— assuring their food needs were met. Because they were successful, we are here reading this. Yet, to this day, dietary issues ranging from nutritional deficiencies to overeating remain a contributor to global morbidity and mortality. Trials done to establish a healthy diet are mainly observational, use food diaries, and have led to some erroneous recommendations that assume that the same diet is right for all people.
