HEALTH will always be the first factor determining our quality of life, even if we do refer to the health of any organism on this planet. The loss of health is a direct consequence of the inheritance, aging, nutrition, lifestyle and the particular characteristics of the resources and the environment that surround us. The prevention and solution to all these growing health problems has always focused on the application of orthodox and foreign paradigms, which were created in and for different latitudinal regions, where DIVERSITY does not play a crucial role. It is especially referred to Chronic Non-communicable Diseases (CNCDs), and its direct connection with human nutrition. Numerous evidences show that the wonderful BIODIVERSITY of natural resources in subtropical and temperate regions is not exposed as in the tropics to the diverse and erratic changes that occurred during each day of the year. In this sense, here an invitation to rethink a little beyond the traditional, continue to learn from it and integrate it in the rescue, enrichment and conservation of this still rich TROPICAL Biodiversity with the introduction of a BioTropical Horticulture as a personalized agricultural system by local needs and challenges.
