Major diet-related risk factors for women

Abstract

Women and men share many of the same nutritional concerns; however, women are more predisposed to certain diseases than men simply due to physiological differences. While both genders possess some of the same concerns regarding cancers (esophageal, stomach, colon, lung, pancreatic, bladder), heart disease and Alzhe-imer’s disease, other diseases such as breast cancer, anemia and osteoporosis are greater concerns for women. Nutritional concerns for women may be magnified because, in their lifespan, women go through several major hormonal changes, such as menarche, pregnancy, lactation and menopause. For example, nutritional needs during pregnancy and lactation greatly increase for most of the nutrients, while the risk of osteoporosis tends to parallel the hormonal changes that occur throughout the lifespan.
