    I'll bet you've never even taken the time to consider what your nutritional needs might be, or the importance of that nutrition on your health. Did you know that if the brain doesn't get enough protein, it doesn't develop correctly, or if the healthy female body doesn't get enough flax oil, omega-3 and omega-6 her body's metabolism will not function correctly and she is more susceptible to weight gain? All these pieces of information and many more are contributing factors to our nutritional needs, and our nutritional needs are met through our eating habits, good or bad.

    Nutrition as it applies to our daily lives means that we take in what we need to maintain our body's healthy state. Nutrition has become an important word.

      IF you don't get enough protein your brain wont develop correctly? What is your source on that information. Human breast milk is somewhere between 2% -6% protein. Is that too little? growing babies need more protein than adults for there little muscles to grow. There is so much misinformation about protein. What about all the raw vegan athletes that don't eat anything but fruit, vegetables and leafy greens (80/10/10 diet)? They eat less than 10% protein and yet are extremely healthy. Also when you eat cooked protein you body can not absorb the protein so its rendered useless. Give me one example in medical history of someone being protein deficient. I've never heard of it, although excess protein is linked to cancer, heart disease and an array of many other health problems (The China Study). Where is your information coming from?

    Not sure about Regina's comments but protein deficiency is a real issue.
