We often hear about the importance of eating healthy
and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, but many Americans struggle to accomplish
this goal. Additionally, we also fail to realize the significance of healthy
eating, and the multitude of health benefits it can offer. Discuss the

inadequate or improper nutrition? In your response, be sure to include
information on malnutrition and chronic disease.
