INTRODUCTION


1.1 Human health


Health is the complete state of physical, mental, and social well-being. A number of

factors are known to influence the health status of individuals, including their background,

lifestyle, economic and social conditions, and spirituality which are referred to as

"determinants of health". Achieving and maintaining health is an ongoing process, shaped

by both the evolution of health care knowledge and practices as well as personal

strategies and organized interventions for staying healthy. An unhealthy diet is a major

risk factor for a number of chronic diseases including high blood pressure, diabetes,

abnormal blood lipids, overweight/obesity, cardiovascular diseases, and cancer. The World

Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 2.7 million deaths are attributable to a diet low in

fruits and vegetables every year. Globally it is estimated to cause about 19% of

gastrointestinal cancer, 31% of ischaemic heart disease, and 11% of strokes, thus making

it one of the


leading preventable causes of death worldwide (Lopez et al., 2006).
