Malnutrition is the state that appears as a result of an unbalanced diet, in which there are nutrients missing, or from which there is an excess, or whose intake is given in the wrong ratio.
The World Health Organization defines malnutrition as the single greatest global public health threat.
As a result of a poor diet, various nutritional disorders may occur, depending on which nutrients are under- or overused in the diet.
An unbalanced diet affects the body, causing health problems that can affect the body severely, to the point of death of the individual.
