Description

Aging is an inevitable natural process. It results in changes to several
organs which function less efficiently leading to the development
of disease. Research has shown that the risk of chronic disorders
increases significantly with age. Good nutrition can slow the disease
process, and assist the individual to have a longer life. It is very
important that elderly persons engage in good nutrition practices by
eating a variety of foods from the six food groups and being physically
active to delay or prevent the onset of diseases.
