Global Deficiency of Nutrition Education in Physician Training

Per the Global Burden of Disease Study, which examines data from 195 countries, dietary factors are the single leading cause of death and contribute to higher mortality rates than smoking. Worldwide, obesity affects hundreds of millions of people, and the rates have tripled since 1975, according to data from the World Health Organization.
