It is extremely important that we eat food and without it the human body would shut down and we would die.
The body needs food because the food contains nutrients in it that our body uses to carry out its functions. They help us to grow, become stronger, give us energy, and build up a stronger immune system so we can fight of illnesses throughout the year and to repair old damaged cells.
  All of the digested food and nutrients flow into our bloodstream and are used to help replace old damaged red blood cells.

Used it for my sciencee essay ^^     ;)

Food is like fuel to keep the fire burning. Too much and you smother it, (too fat)  too little and you starve the fire, (anorexia)   so you need to find the right amount of fuel or food that suits your bodies needs.  Foodstuff contains substances such as proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. All these are used by the body to provide energy, repair and replace damaged cells, sustain the body and help the body fight infections.  If your diet is lacking in even one of these it can prove fatal. :)

Food is the fuel for your body just as gasoline is for your car , without gas in your car it stops and won't go, it is the same with your body and food, you may over do it (give it too much food, plus all the wrong kinds of food) - obese can cause dysfunction in the body just as Anorexia.... Not enough fuel or food for the body to be able to function properly.....the best to you

It's all because of the nutrients in food that support our body. Of course, over time, people started taking it more seriously, making restaurants and food tours like the ones by the link, but I think it's a good thing, people are evolving, after all. So I think the food industry is way more widespread than it seems.
