Nutrition and Women’s Health Practice Paper

The Academy has published a new practice paper on "Nutrition and Women's Health."

The practice paper states that cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in women, followed by cancer and stroke. Breast cancer, while associated with lower mortality than most other cancers, is the leading cause of cancer-related morbidity in women. Osteoporosis also threatens women, particularly after menopause. Importantly, each of these diagnoses in aging women share a commonality in that lifestyle choices, including diet, play a primary role in prevention and treatment of these diseases. This practice paper provides a synopsis of current dietary recommendations for CVD, osteoporosis and breast cancer in women. Registered dietitian nutritionists and dietetic technicians, registered play important roles in risk reduction for these diagnoses and RDNs are uniquely qualified to provide medical nutrition therapy.
