The issue of great taste contained within the parameters of good nutrition is one that obviously needs to be addressed at this point in time. Obesity among citizens of the United States of America is at epidemic proportions. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), blacks of non-Hispanic ancestry have the highest age-adjusted rate of obesity of almost 50%, when compared with over 40% of Americans of Mexican heritage suffer from obesity. Full Hispanics have an almost 50% rate of obesity, and almost 35% of non Hispanic whites suffer from obesity (JAMA, 2012, p. 307).

About the Author

David J. Pleau was born and raised in Waterville, Maine, USA. He currently resides in Bybee, Tn., near the Great Smoky Mountains and the Cherokee National Forest. David graduated from Kaplan University in April of 2014 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Nutritional Sciences. He is currently pursuing a Master of Science degree from Purdue University in Health Education (Nutrition, Lifestyle, Environmental Hazards, Social Influence, Demographic Influence, etc. . .). He has been a student of nutrition since the age of 19, when he bought a book from a fellow student entitled "Diet For A Small Planet" which advocated the sensibility of a vegetarian diet. Even though David Pleau hasn't been in poor health either then or now, the book made sense and he has since studied different eating customs in lands around the earth and the resultant health issues including disease occurrence based on food consumed and longevity directly influenced by foods chosen and eaten. With these degrees, credentials are established to the end of educating all who can see and desire to learn the link between eating patterns and good health/longevity. It is a scientific fact that many common diseases today such as cancer, obesity, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, and a host of others are directly linked to poor dietary habits. I have many books available on the website: "Smashwords". These are published and each book has an appropriate ISBN number. Most of them are listed at $1.99 and one, "Cures for Common Diseases and Ailments" is an encyclopedia listing the contents of the others. This one is available at $4.99. Obviously I am not out to economically gouge anyone at those prices. . I have over 40 years of Nutritional Studies in my background, and am current on global eating patterns and results. David J. Pleau
