Deficienciess, excesses and imbalances in diet can produce negative impacts on health, which may lead to diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, scurvy, fatness or osteoporosis, as well as mental and behavioral troubles. Moreover, unnecessary intake of elements that have no perceptible role in health, (e.g. lead, dioxins, mercury, PCBs), may incur toxic and potentially fatal effects, depending on the dosage.
Many familiar diseases and their symptom can often be prevented or alleviated with better nutrition. The science of nutrition attempts to be aware of how and why specific nutritional aspects influence health.

Mendel observed that inheritance is basically a discrete process with specific traits that are inherited in an independant manner. These basic units of inheritance is now known as "genes". In the cells of organisms, genes exist actually in the structure of the molecule DNA and the information genes contain is used to create and control the components of cells. Although genetics plays a large role in determining the appearance and behavior of organisms, it is the interaction of genetics with the environment an organism experiences that determines the ultimate outcome. For example, while genes play a role in determining a person's height, the nutrition and health that person experiences in childhood also have a large effect.
