What is food and why do we eat?

Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.

Hippocrates

We are all aware of the importance of nutrition in our life in order to maintain health. Actually, nutrition is one of the most important, more important than exercise, and nutrition is accomplished most of all through eating food. Thus, food should, by definition, provide nutrition to our body and eating should be the process of offering food to our body. But do these definitions apply to the so called “food” that we so called “eat” today?
