Description - Nutrition at a Glance by Mary E. Barasi

The importance of the diet as the root cause of many human diseases, and in their treatment, has only recently been fully appreciated and the subject is never far from the newspaper headlines, nor far from the thoughts of much of developed-nation populations. Nutrition at a Glance follows the extremely successful Blackwell Publishing At a Glance series model, providing succinct information in a user friendly and well-illustrated manner, allowing for easy assimilation of the main facts about human nutrition. Each short chapter focuses on key facts, and is supported by well-planned diagrams in a carefully-presented layout. All the main topics relevant to the study of human nutrition are covered, including methods for studying nutrition, the consequences of inadequate nutrition, carbohydrates, fats, proteins, energy balance, micronutrients, alcohol, obesity, cancer, cardiovascular disease, gastrointestinal diseases, dietary needs of special groups, the brain, food choice, food allergies and intolerances, nutritional therapies, popular diets, politics of food, diet and exercise, health promotion programmes, the role of the dietitian and clinical nutrition. Nutrition at a Glance is a readily useable and succinct guide that is an invaluable companion for a wide range of health studies, nursing and medical students. It is also a handy quick reference guide for busy professionals and company executives.
