A nutritionist is a key person who advises on matters of food and nutrition and their impacts on human health. Nutrition is a very essential part of science that interprets the interaction of nutrients and other substances in food in relation to maintenance, growth, reproduction, health and disease of an organism. It includes food intake, absorption, assimilation, biosynthesis, catabolism and excretion. For humans, a healthy diet includes preparation of food and storage methods that preserve nutrients from oxidation, heat or leaching, and that reduce risk of foodborne illness. An unhealthy diet can cause deficiency-related diseases such as blindness, anaemia, scurvy, preterm birth, stillbirth and cretinism, nutrient excess health-threatening conditions such as obesity and metabolic syndrome and such common chronic systemic diseases as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and osteoporosis. Undernutrition can lead to wasting in acute cases and the stunting of marasmus in chronic cases of malnutrition.

Timely measures and awareness in terms of nutrition, food and diet advances the understanding of nutrients and health protectants in food for improving the human condition.
