Nutritionist Alla Pogozheva: chronic diseases of Russians for 50% are connected with food

Nearly a half of noninfectious chronic diseases of adult Russians is connected with the wrong structure of food, the scientist-nutritionist considers.

the Leading researcher of the Federal Test Center (FTC) of food and biotechnology, professor Alla Pogozheva expressed a problem of improper feeding of Russians, acting on the All-Russian congress on gerontology and geriatrics in Moscow. According to the scientist-nutritionist, Russians abuse sugar, salt, animal fat and confectionery, and along with it in their diet there are no vitamins and minerals necessary for health.

"About 50% of chronic diseases at adult population in Russia have alimentarno dependent character, that is, are connected with unbalanced food", - Pogozheva noted.

according to the expert, structure of food of the Russians living in different regions of the country leaves much to be desired. At already mentioned abuse of junk food Russians eat not enough potatoes, vegetables, melon, fruit and berries, the nutritionist told. For this reason, Alla Pogozheva noted, "the chemical composition of a habitual diet moves in the party, adverse for health".

the Consequence of such shift for which distinctive feature is the shortage of useful nutritious minerals become deviations which are shown at Russians already at young age, - first of all this obesity. In Russia, according to Pogozheva, 54% of men and 59% of women have excess weight today, and from them every third case is not completeness, but the obesity associated with development of type 2 diabetes. Besides, obesity strengthens development of the adverse processes leading to heart troubles and vessels and also to some types of cancer and considerably reduces life expectancy.

One of mistakes in food of Russians is abundance of fat, the nutritionist prompts. If the share fat in the general the caloric content of a diet does not exceed normal 30%, in Russia it averages 36-37%, Alla Pogozheva specified.

Other widespread mistake - excess consumption of salt. For Russians typically "to hold a saltcellar on a table and to dosalivat practically any dish, and it is very harmful", the expert added.
