Food makes your body work, grow and repair itself. The kind of food you eat can affect the efficiency of these processes. Body function and the food that sustains it is infinitely complex.  Nourishment is far beyond the limited context of diet and includes anything we consume into our bodies, minds or souls. Nourishment is all sustenance taken in through our senses into our bodies -- your mouth, ears, eyes, nose, and sense of touch -- and it affects your physical and mental health and subsequent happiness.

Re: 1 - On Food


Nurish is important for people because everbody  needs food,  but the people doesn’t  know how eat right, what we have to eat  to be healthier  and when we have to eat.

So is important to think  about our choices, research information, take care with what we are eating  and how we are desgarding  our trash.

When we talk about food, we are talking about the producers of this food, the way that it is produced  and how healthier this is for us.

Nourishment and food are linked because a good nutrition depends of the quality of food. A bad feed can cause obesity, poor diet and other illness. In other words, if you have a good feed composed with vegetables, fruits, green salads your body will be nourish. Though if your feed is composed with deserts, animal fats, sugar, carbohydrates increase the chances of obesity and related ilnesses.

We are what we eat, that’s why our body needs nutrients to work very well. Otherwise, we will probably develop many diseases. Nourishment is the study of food, the research deeply in all kind of food and its impact on us finding the best way to eat day-by-day.

Also. it is important to know where all this food came from. For instance, where is the origin of the vegetable you are eating? Or the meat? Nowadays, many ways to growing and produce food were created to supply the necessity of a population. Some people can grow at home or there are large farms that produce in a large quantity.

Another point is the quality of the food, whether its organic or not, how much pesticide it uses. We have to be careful with everything involved with our nutrition as it has a direct impact on us.

Nourishment is the benefit that foods like vegetables, fruits and others naturals and organic foods provide to the person who eat them. "Food" is what we eat, and nourishment is what we get from this, because we do not "eat nourishment". We get them from the foods.

"Nourish is: to feed or sustain (any plant or animal) with substances necessary to life and growth."

Nourishing is the way how we get all the necessary nutrients that our body needs to be alive. It can provide us a healthy life, depending on what kind of food we eat . Fruits and vegetables are good sources of minerals and vitamins which are essencial to our body. Having a healthy diet can also improve your sleep, memory,mood and beauty.I really agree with the statement that says: " We are what we eat".

Eating. We do that everyday. One of the two main necessities that supplies our existence on Earth. However, we can't eat anything we want. Neither can't we ingest food in huge quantities.  This is due the need for balance in our diets. Specially, in this modern society. Which we don't have much time to think, choose and arrange a nice meal. Nourishment comes from the latin word "nutrire". Whichever means "to feed". This noun, turns to be one of the most importants of this XXI century. As a result of people searching a healthier lifestyle. Therefore, the snack you just had today can provide you with a high quality of life. So, as your mother usually said... "Feed yourself with salad and fruits, young fella!". Follow this recipe and you'll have a great life span.

WE ARE WHAT WE EAT. Thus, we always need to look for a greater style of living. 

Of course, one day of pizza won't kill you. So eat a pizza! But... Not everyday.  IT CAN KILL YOU!

(I know it's difficult to not eat a pizza... Still, try it!)

There's another expression that came from latin: memento mori.

I think you should pay attention on that, as you saw, it is not just food that can kill you... your classmates too. ;)

Nourishment is a broad word to communicate the kind of food whitin we can feed something or someone, ranking it by how healthier it is. Can be used related to people, animals, plants, as: The nurishment of the threes are made mostly by water. However, it can also be used in the metaphoric language. For example, when nourishment is employed in the verb mode: They nourish hope to have a baby. No “hope” is being feeded, but it’s understandable that their hope grows, became closer to reality, etc. Nourishment is also related to good health, researches about how to nourish our bodies better, what kind of food nourish us, which nutrients are find here and there - and the academic world.

Food is a word which represents all sort of things that feed any person, animal or plant. It Is commonly applied to solids. It’s different from nourishment because nourishment is a noun which comes from a substantivation, related to the verb: to nourish. Also, we nourish ourselves with food; and nourishment will make distinction between good and bad food for health.

The nourishment is very important to the human body, nourish the body is vital today have each more professition this area of nourich to can help what each body need.

I think that nourish could be learn at school, because few people have acess a good informations  about how  get a good heathy or people doesn't  know eat right.

The people needs know better what is a good  nourishment , in Brazil have a lot of large farms  of vegetables and fruit of good quality  that are very rich in vitamins and fibers, but the children prefer yet eat sweets and junk foods.

Must be have more advertising about a good heathy.

Eating food is one of the most satisfying things on life. The problem is that people don‘t usually like eating healthy food, only fast food. That’s why it’s possible to say that nourishment is a life style, because it requires you to eat good food like vegetables and fruits.

Both words are related, however they are not synonyms, because of the fact that are foods which don´t provide any type of nourishment. And because of that is important for a person to know if she really wants to full fill her body with good nutrients or if she just wants to satisfy a personal desire.
