      As adults grow older, they have a greater chance of developing certain diet-related diseases, such as hypertension (high blood pressure), heart disease, cancer, and/or osteoporosis. Older adults are more likely to require diet modification to control disease than younger adults, but the diet should still reflect the preferences of the older adult. The problem of the early development of cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors is negatively affecting the nation's health and placing a tremendous burden on the economy. Early identification and reduction of risk for CVD in children and adolescents has the potential to reduce the burden of adult cardiovascular disease.

      Nutrition in the Prevention and Treatment of Disease, Fourth Edition, is a compilation of current knowledge in clinical nutrition and an overview of the rationale and science base of its application to practice in the prevention and treatment of disease.

These researchers found that the proportion of those in the study with more than one chronic disease.
