Returning to Traditional Foods to Overcome Chronic Disease

(b) Describe typical shifts of chronic disease risk for populations whose traditional diets have been overturned by colonization or industrialization.
(c) Predict what changes would be expected in chronic disease risk, based on past research history, if animal-derived and processed foods such as used in the USDA surplus commodity programs, were displaced by traditional indigenous plant-based foods of the southwest region.
