The role rational nutrition in prevention of dental diseases
Ancient Greek philosopher Thales of Miletus wrote that he is happy, who is healthy in body, receptive to soul and submissive to education. The Charter of the World Health Organization (WHO) refers to the highest level of health as one of the basic human rights. The human right is closely related to its responsibility. The entire way of life of a person, and especially a medical student and a doctor, should constantly remind him of the responsibility for his health and the health of others. The way of life is a culture of nutrition, movement, profession, use of free time, creativity. The health of modern man is 60% dependent on lifestyle. At the same time, a healthy lifestyle determines not only the absence of disease, but also the optimal functioning of all organs and systems, including the oral cavity. The way of life influences spiritual and physical health, strengthening or destroying it, prolonging or shortening life. Consequently, the right way of life is a factor of health, and an unhealthy lifestyle is a risk factor.
