How food affects our health

The food we eat is important

Eating healthy is important to our body. Eating foods high in nutrients (fruits, veggies) keeps our body in balance, which is where homeostasis comes in. Eating healthy food keeps our body working right and helps fight off disease and illness. Nutrients tell our body how to function right. Food acts as medicine, to maintain, prevent, and treat disease.
