Excerpt
Introduction: Latin American countries have had important demographic, epidemiological and nutritional changes in the last decades. The demographic transition has occurred through a sustained decrease in fecundity, an increase in life expectancy and changes in the age structure of the population. The demographic changes have modified the epidemiological profile of the population. Specifically, the prevalence of non-communicable chronic diseases has been increasing. Nutritional changes similar to those in more industrialised countries have resulted in an increase in the prevalence of obesity. The consumption of diets with a high caloric density and sedentarism are closely related to the increase in the frequency of nutrition related diseases, diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular diseases and some types of cancer (1).
