An acknowledged nutritional discipline that studies the impact of micronutrients on the health:
- Minerals and Trace Elements
- Fatty acids
- Amino acids

In order to do this, we should consume at least 3000 Kcal./day, which would lead to obesity because modern lifestyle is characterized by a marked decrease in burning energy.
