Nutrition plays a vital role in a person’s overall health and well-being. Not getting enough of the recommended nutrients over the long-term can lead to malnutrition which often results in disease and illness.

In a 3-page paper, written in APA format using proper spelling/grammar, address the following:

1. Define malnutrition and identify a specific disease that can result from it.

2. Perform library research about the selected disease, and explain its physiological effects on a person’s body. 

3. Describe the relationship between specific foods/nutrients and the disease. Use the questions below to guide your response.

4. Does research indicate that a lack of specific foods/nutrients increase a person’s chance of contracting the disease?

5. Are there specific foods/nutrients that should be avoided by an individual afflicted with the disease?

6. How do specific foods/nutrients work physiologically within the body to help combat the disease?

7. Evaluate nutritional recommendations to help combat the disease.

8. Cite at least 3 credible references and present the resources in APA format on the References page.
