It has long been known that nutritional deficiencies are associated with morbidity and mortality in hospitalized patients. Registered dietitians (RDs) are responsible for the diagnosis and treatment of malnutrition in all practice settings. Accurate diagnosis of malnutrition depends on the skills of RDs in completing the nutrition assessment combined with critical thinking skills.

In 2016, however, the food landscape is drastically different, and today, the United States faces nutrition-related issues more closely associated with over consumption of calories, bigger waistlines, and chronic disease. Overweight and obesity now afflict the majority of U.S. adults and a large percentage of U.S. children.

Can food really take the place of medicine? While modern medicine certainly has its place and does more than its fair share of good, there is no denying that many of society’s most perilous chronic diseases are exacerbated by poor diets. Whereas earlier infectious diseases used to cause the most death, the impact of chronic diseases now far overshadows that of infectious diseases. Diet plays a significant role in the development of a number of types of chronic disease, such as heart disease, diabetes, and certain types of cancer.
