Stanford Introduction to Food and Health is a scientific training course on nutrition and health published by Coursera Academy. The issue of diet and nutritional health is one of the most important issues and challenges of humanity in the present era, which has found its way well in academic environments. Unhealthy and non-standard diet and eating habits can cause many diseases and problems for humans, the most important of which are type 2 diabetes and obesity.
These two diseases have killed millions of people every year and have caused many problems in the fields of physical and mental health. In order to solve these challenges, culture should be created and different strategies in the field of healthy diet should be introduced to the people.
Academic research has shown that the continuous consumption of highly processed foods and fast foods and the lack of cooking at home in the family environment have caused the epidemic of a series of chronic diseases that threaten the lives of many people.
