Nutrition and Women's Health

Currently, cardiovascular disease (CVD) 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 dietitians (RDs) and dietetic technicians, registered play important important roles in risk reduction for these diagnoses and RDs are uniquely qualified to provide medical nutrition therapy.
