Analyses of economic and food availability data for 1962-1994 reveal a major shift in the structure of the global diet marked by an uncoupling of the classic relationship between incomes and fat intakes. Global availability of cheap vegetable oils and fats has resulted in greatly increased fat consumption among low-income nations. Consequently, the nutrition transition now occurs at lower levels of the gross national product than previously, and is accelerated further by high urbanization rates… Expand
Dynamics of the nutrition transition toward the animal foods sector in China and its implications: a worried perspective.
TLDR
The large shifts in the composition of diets and obesity across the developing world and notes that these changes are accelerating are documents in descriptive and more rigorous dynamic longitudinal analysis. Expand

TLDR
The fetal origins hypothesis is considered, whereby the metabolic efficiencies that served well in conditions of fetal undernutrition become maladaptive with overnutrition, leading to the development of abnormal lipid profiles, altered glucose and insulin metabolism and obesity. Expand

This chapter reviews the likely consequences of dietary change for human health and wellbeing in Asia where a transition is occurring from diets dominated by low fat, high fibre foods to increasedExpand

TLDR
An analysis of three longitudinal databases of food supply, sales, and economics across the period 1961–2010 observed that the change in global food supply has been characterized by a dramatic rise in pig meat consumption in China and poultry consumption in North America. Expand
Nutrition Transition and the Structure of Global Food Demand
Abstract Estimating future demand for food is a critical aspect of global food security analyses. The process linking dietary changes to wealth is known as the nutrition transition and presentsExpand
The Nutrition Transition Is Speeding Up: A Global Perspective
The speed of increase in the prevalence of overweight and obesity in the developing world is greater than that seen in higher-income developed countries. This very much relates to a mismatch betweenExpand

TLDR
The existing burden of undernutrition in developing countries is thus compounded by the adverse effects of the nutrition transition, notably the increasing prevalence of obesity and non-communicable diseases. Expand
Measuring the nutrition transition and its dynamics
TLDR
The authors show that income per capita, urbanisation, and a measure of globalisation are all significantly linked with increases in the Western diet similarity index. Expand

TLDR
Cross-country and in-depth analysis of the China study is used and shows the shifts in diet and activity are consistent with the rapid changes in child and adult obesity and in some cases have been causally linked. Expand

TLDR
In general, it is found that problems of under- and overnutrition often coexist, reflecting the trend in which an increasing proportion of people consume the types of diets associated with a number of chronic diseases. Expand
The nutrition transition in China: a cross-sectional analysis.
TLDR
Higher income levels are associated with consumption of a diet higher in fat and with problems of obesity, and there is a need for the Chinese government to consider ways to address these problems of deficit and excess jointly. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that even small intakes of foods of animal origin are associated withsignificant increases in plasma cholesterol concentrations, which are associated, in turn, with significant increases in chronic degenerative disease mortality rates. Expand
A comparison of dietary trends among racial and socioeconomic groups in the United States.
TLDR
There were large differences among groups in dietary quality in 1965, with whites of high socioeconomic status eating the least healthful diet, as measured by the index, and blacks of low socioeconomic status the most healthful, but by the 1989-1991 survey, the diets of all groups had improved and were relatively similar.
