NUTRITION : A HEALTH PROMOTION APPROACH Summary

NUTRITION : A HEALTH PROMOTION APPROACH by Geoffrey Webb

Written essentially as a student text, this book offers a concise overview and critical analysis of the nutritional aspects of health promotion. Assuming little biochemical knowledge on the part of the student, it marries two topical and expanding subject areas: nutrition and health promotion. Its coverage includes food selection and classification, energy balance, nutrients, nutrition and the human life cycle, educational guidelines and food safety. Its aim is to cover the whole field of nutrition, including the social and cultural aspects, nutritional epidemiology and food-borne disease. The author discusses and evaluates current nutritional and educational guidelines, and uses both UK and US terms, standards and data.
