Description - Public Health Nutrition by Michael J. Gibney

As an academic subject, nutrition has grown enormously in recent years and with it the need for specialist textbooks on the subject. In response to this need, a decision was taken by The Nutrition Society to produce a ground-breaking series of four textbooks, of which "Public Health Nutrition" is the third. The books in the series: provide students with the required scientific basis in nutrition, in the context of a systems and health approach, and enable teachers and students to explore the core principles of nutrition and to apply these throughout their training to foster critical thinking at all times. Each chapter identifies the key areas of knowledge that must be understood and also the key points of critical thought that must accompany the acquisition of this knowledge. They are fully peer reviewed to ensure completeness and clarity of content, as well as to ensure that each book takes a global perspective and is applicable for use by nutritionists and on nutrition courses throughout the world. "Public Health Nutrition" is an essential purchase for students majoring in nutrition and dietetics. Public health nutrition as a subject is growing immensely in importance, taking into account the real potential to reduce the burden of non-communicable chronic disease through diet. Professionals in nutrition, dietetics, food science, medicine, community health care and many related health care areas will all find much of great use within the book's covers. Libraries in all universities, medical schools and establishments teaching and researching in these subject areas should have several copies on their shelves. Other books in the nutrition society text book series include "Introduction to Human Nutrition" - ISBN 063205624X, "Nutrition & Metabolism" - ISBN 0632056258, and "Clinical Nutrition" - ISBN 0632056266.
