Nutrition is a popular but often misunderstood topic, one about which there is a great deal of interest as evidenced by the plethora of available advice. Because nutrition is a key factor in health, it is important that the public have a source of information they can trust. This is that source: a comprehensive overview that will help readers make sense of conflicting information they find in the media regarding what is healthy and what is not. Organized alphabetically, the work covers the most important topics in human nutrition including nutrients, nutrition-related health concerns, aging and nutrition, eating disorders, and the value of dietary supplements.
