If you consider yourself a healthy eater, let me tell you this: you’re one of the few in this country.
Micronutrient deficiency affects over two billion people worldwide, and in the United States specifically, over 30% of people are deficient in at least one vitamin. This is, in major part, due to our diet; energy-rich but nutrient-poor foods now comprise over one-fourth of the standard American’s diet, and while people are increasingly exceeding their daily calorie allowance, they’re not hitting the recommended daily intake of vitamins and minerals.
When it comes to fruits and vegetables alone, over 75% of the U.S. population does not consume the recommended daily amount. Think about that for a second: let’s say your Christmas party this year has a total of 40 family members attending. On average, only ten of those are eating the recommended amount of fruits and vegetables each day.
A study recently published in The Lancet found that poor diet was a major factor in nearly 11 million deaths in 2017. To put that into perspective, there were a total of just under 57 million deaths that year, so nearly one in five were due to poor diet–and that’s just looking at people who died, not those that became disabled in some way or had other medical issues due to food choices.
Further, the rates of diet-related diseases continue to rise. Not only are nutrition-related diseases such as goiters, rickets, scurvy, and gout starting to re-emerge in developed countries, but chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis, and cardiovascular disease continue to affect more and more people, in part due to our awful diet choices
How To Get Adequate Vitamins & Nutrients In Your Body
If you’re like most people in the world, you have at least one micronutrient deficiency. In the United States, over 90% of people are deficient in Vitamin D and/or E, while over half is deficient in magnesium. Additionally, over 44% of people are deficient in calcium and/or Vitamin A, just to name a few.
The typical American diet isn’t getting you the vitamins and nutrients your body needs, and even if you are eating what most consider the “healthy and good foods,” those are becoming more and more nutrient and/or vitamin depleted with each passing year.
