Essentials of human nutrition

£23.99

Product description

Nutrition is one of the most important determinants of individual and public health. An increasingly informed public expects its health and food professionals to be able to offer clear, evidence-based advice on diet and associated health implications, but how can established nutrition principles be extracted from the extensive body of often misleading information available in the public domain? For those embarking on courses in nutrition or related subjects, Essentials of Human Nutrition offers a broad, quality survey of the field. Chapters written by international experts chart the involvement and impact of nutrition across different age groups and from the genetic to the community level. It draws together the wide spectrum of disciplines, from biochemistry to counselling, necessary to promote the practical application of nutritional science at the human level, providing everything a student needs to appreciate the increasingly recognized importance of nutrition to health and disease. - Disentangles scientifically established nutrition principles from the morass of misinformation available in the public domain - Data sets and extensive referencing ensure the content is firmly anchored in nutrition science - Practical processes with which students need to be familiar, such as dietary assessment and food analysis, are covered Online Resource Centre The Online Resource Centre to accompany Essentials of Human Nutrition features: For students: .
