Cover Story (view full-size image): The increased risk for chronic non-communicable diseases (NCDs) is linked to Westernized dietary patterns, which are marked by fatty/processed meats, refined grains, salt, and sugar and limited fresh fruits and vegetables. In healthy diets, macro- and micronutrients and hydration are proportional to physiologic needs. Traditional regional dietary patterns (e.g., Mediterranean, Nordic, Chinese, Korean) and their derivatives (e.g., Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension [DASH], Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay [MIND]) offer alternatives by emphasizing plant-based foods and whole grains and replacing fatty/processed meats with healthier protein sources (e.g., fish, legumes). The available evidence suggests that these dietary patterns reduce the risk for NCDs such as cardiovascular disease and cancer. View this paper.
