‘Get toknow adiet’ is a weekly series that takes a closer look at some well-known diet trends. This week, we ask a dietitian and a nutritionist about vegetarianism andveganism.

7 Nutrient Deficiencies That Can Make You Sick

7 Nutrient Deficiencies That Can Make You Sick | Healthy Eating News | Scoop.it

Tired? Depressed? Always under the weather? You might not be getting the right amount of vitamins and minerals.

 

Today’s average restaurant meal is more than four times larger than in the 1950s, and according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), adults are, on average, 26 pounds heavier. Despite the embarrassing abundance of food, many Americans still unknowingly suffer from nutrient deficiencies. Whether from vapid calories (hello, junk food), chemical-induced deficiencies, a lack of a variety, or any number of other factors, some of us just aren’t getting what we need. 

 

The CDC’s Second Nutrition Report, an assessment of diet and nutrition in the U.S. population, concludes that there are a number of specific nutrients lacking in the American diet. Not only can nutrient deficiencies have long-lasting health effects, they can make you feel rotten. Here are some of the more common vitamins and minerals lacking in our diets, deficiencies that can cause an array of symptoms, from poor memory and bleeding gums to impaired work productivity and depression.
