There is an urgent need for dietary guideline for contemporary society because there are diverse health challenges. People suffer from diverse diseases and most of these diseases are diet- related. People are prone to diseases for two major reasons- TOXICITY and DEFICIENCY. Toxicity occurs on the one hand when people take in the wrong food most of the time. On the other hand, the body gets deficient of the right nutrients due to wrong feeding. Man lacks the discipline to eat the right kind of food and therefore a dietary pattern may be useful in controlling people’s food choices. Berdanier, a nutritionist advocated for a dietary pattern for individuals and nations as a major way of improving world health status.
