This introductory nutrition text teaches students the basic principles of nutrition science, as well as how to use those principles to understand nutrition information and make wise food choices. Throughout, the authors emphasize that diets are comprised the individual food choices we make on a daily basis - and that one choice doesn't make or break a diet. This edition incorporates health and disease, metabolism, cultural diversity, and life cycle topics into every chapter. New and expanded coverage of the Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs), nutrition and gene expression, weight management, dietary supplements, and environmental issues is also included.

THE CHOICE IS YOURS
Ice cream or sorbet, red meat or fish, fruits or pastries, eggs or oatmeal-our lives are filled with choices about what we eat. That's why Lori Smolin and Mary Grosvenor's Nutrition: Science and Applications, 4/E helps you understand how to analyze nutritional information and apply your knowledge to the nutrition issues you face each and every day.
Now updated to include the new Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs) published in the fall of 2002, the Fourth Edition offers new and expanded coverage of such cutting-edge nutritional topics as the relationship between genetics and body weight regulation and the ecological impact of genetically modified foods and organic food production. In addition, this edition features a new chapter, Meeting Nutrient Needs: Food Versus Supplements, which discusses the benefits and drawbacks of meeting nutritional needs with foods, fortified foods, and supplements, as well as the role of herbal supplements.
