MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

New Nutrition Science identifies nutrition as a biological and also a social and environmental science, concerned with personal, population, and also planetary health and well–being. This three–dimensional science is fit to face the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century. This comprehensive reformulation consolidates many moves already being made to incorporate themes such as evolution, ecology, economics, and equity, into nutrition teaching and practice.












Written by the team responsible for the joint initiative between the International Union of Nutritional Sciences and the World Health Policy Forum and Edited by international experts Geoffrey Cannon and Claus Leitzmann, this innovative work is essential reading for all those studying and working in the field of nutritional science today. Its groundbreaking approach will serve as a fascinating guide for all those involved in public health policy and nutrition curricula at both a local and international level, and should be available in all libraries and research institutions where these subjects are studied and taught.
