Best food

What is the best food? The best food is often associated with great taste. A great taste is often due to additives such as cream, butter, alcohol, salt and sugar.

NCDs are largely due to a unhealthy lifestyle based on mostly poor diet habits, insufficient physical activity, tobacco use and stress.
