For students who lack a strong science background, Contemporary Nutrition gives the ideal balance of reliable nutrition information and practical consumer-oriented knowledge. With his friendly writing style, Gordon Wardlaw acts as the student's personal guide, dispelling common misconceptions and giving a solid foundation for making informed nutrition choices. - The book includes the most up-to-date content available (hot topics and the latest scientific data), for example: phytochemicals, nutrition supplements, current DRI guidelines, ergogenic aids, energy bars and much more. - The fifth edition represents a major overhaul of the art program and design. The new and revised art is bigger, bolder and brighter, making the text much more visually dynamic. - A new chapter on alcohol presents an intelligent, balanced look at a topic that is very relevant to college students. Details covered range from the production of alcohol, to metabolism, to problems and benefits associated with alcohol use.
