Dietitians and nutritionists from around the world convened, shared research findings, and discussed issues, policies and education relating to nutrition and the activities of dietitians at the 15th International Congress of Dietetics (ICD), held in Yokohama, Japan, on September 8–11, 2008. On the theme, ‘Global Dietetic Linkage and Cooperation for Human Health,’ the congress explored
approaches to new solutions to global food and nutrition issues. A particular focus was the double burden of malnutrition, where both over- and undernutrition affects the same population. Lifestyle-related chronic diseases are no longer only a problem among developed country populations, they are also increasingly affecting rapidly urbanizing developing country populations. The globalization of diets, both healthy and harmful, requires global cooperation to ensure adequate nutrition and health among all populations.
For all devoted to nutrition.
