In a modified diet, food is a tool for good health, which implies a beneficial relationship between food and health. Products receive secondary value, while health seems to be a biologically descriptive concept. This article provides an introduction to the cultural understanding of nutrition and health. It explores a broader definition of food and health, as well as a widely used scientific approach that tends to pursue a more reductionist approach to food and health. Several discussions on nutrition and health are discussed in relation to the ethical aspects of personalized nutrition. The success of personalized nutrition probably depends on the ability to integrate a scientific approach into a cultural, emotional, ethical and sensorial understanding of food every day. In recent years, public opinion about modern nutrition and human health has radically changed. There is a general harmony in which many of the chronic health problems have been increasingly observed in Western countries, but are mainly related to food all over the world. However, the nutritional factors associated with these health problems are much less consistent. This misunderstanding has opened the door to the dissemination of various recommendations to improve the diet of modern humans.
