SOME ASPECTS OF IMMUNODEFICIENCY PROBLEMS AND THE STRATEGY OF ITS PREVENTION
According to the report of the United Nations in 2002, a small portion of fruit and vegetables in the diet refers to the risk factors causing death.We have studied the major trends of fruits and vegetables consumed by the population of Tbilisi. The study was conducted in Tbilisi. During the study 306 respondents, selected randomly were interviewed by the specially compiled questionnaires.The study shows that the absolute majority of respondents consumed to mainly heat treated or canned vegetables (cabbage, beet, carrot). Only 4.2% of respondents took raw vegetables daily. Fruit intake was deplorable. Only 28.6% consumed fruits 3 times a week. Based on the above mentioned , we can conclude that the structure of the food intake and its frequency by the population of Tbilisi is inadequate with recommendations. Based on the study data, it’s necessary to increase the consumption of vegetative and fortified food in the diet, to change bad eating habits and to increase physical activity with the support of the state,that will bring more benefit to the people’s health and the country budget, rather than the huge expenses on the treatment of diseases.
