Malnutrition refers to deficiencies or excesses in nutrient intake, imbalance of essential nutrients or impaired nutrient utilization. The double burden of malnutrition consists of both under-nutrition and overweight and obesity, as well as diet-related non-communicable diseases. One of the major causes for malnutrition in India is economic inequality. Due to the low social status of majority of the population, their diet often lacks in both quality and quantity. Women who suffer from malnutrition are less likely to have healthy babies. Nutrition deficiencies inflict long-term damage to both individuals and society. Compared with their better-fed peers, nutrition-deficient individuals are more likely to have infectious diseases such as pneumonia and tuberculosis, which lead to a higher mortality rate. Malnutrition is a serious problem , being malnourished can make you ill, as your body needs the food as a fuel to make sure it functions properly. Being ill can also lead to malnutrition as this often leads to poor eating habits. Other signs can include: increased risk of illness and infection. Malnutrition may be the result of several conditions. First, sufficient and proper food may not be available, because of inadequate agricultural processes, imperfect distribution of food, or certain social problems such as poverty or alcoholism. In these instances, the cause of malnutrition is most often found to be a diet quantitatively inadequate in calories or protein But, Malnutrition can easily be avoided with proper intake of food at the right time.
