About this item

The field of human nutrition has expanded hugely in recent years, to now encompass topics as diverse as nutritional genomics and food security. As appreciation for the importance of nutrition to human health and well-being grows, an understanding of the many aspects of the subject has never been more important. Written by a renowned team of international experts, Human Nutrition provides an authoritative, comprehensive resource for students of human nutrition and other health sciences, and a valuable source of information for everybody working in nutrition and related fields. The text opens with an exploration of the chemical characteristics of foods and nutrients, before moving on to discuss the physiology of food nutrition, micronutrients, and dietary requirements for different sections of the population. The text concludes with an assessment of the evidence base for a link between nutrient intake and disease risk, and a review of the broad discipline of public health nutrition.Online Resource Centre:The Online Resource Centre to accompany Human Nutrition features:Student Resources: Auto-marked multiple choice questions to accompany each chapterCurated links to online sources of further information'In depth' panels: extended coverage of topics included in the bookLecturer Resources: Figures from the book: available to download for use in lectures
