This is the second edition of this highly regarded introductory textbook, covering all aspects of nutrition including nutritional epidemiology, social aspects of nutrition, and the microbiological safety of food as well as the more traditional aspects of food as a source of energy and essential nutrients. Its focus is on nutrition in industrialised countries, where nutritional deficiencies are less of an issue than the role of diet in causing and preventing chronic disease and maintaining good health throughout the life cycle. The importance of health promotion is consequently a guiding principle throughout the book, backed up by a new section on health promotion theory.
This is the book of choice for first year nutrition students, dieticians undertaking the nutrition components of their course, and students undertaking nutrition modules as part of broader scientific or professional courese.

Geoff Webb is at University of East London.Review:
..an extensive and ambitious textbook with the broad aim of covering all aspects of nutrition. This is a book with tremendous breadth and gives a discursive treatment to the subject area, which is often lacking in similar nutritional texts. As such, it succeeds in 'bringing the subject to life.'
Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics.
This is a high quality, well researched and structured text and the author writes in such a way as to make complex nutritional concepts easily accessible to students with a limited knowledge of science. This book should be available to pre- and post- qualifying nursing students undertaking nutritional and health educational components of a course. It is also likely to be of great value as a reference text to primary care practitioners who are involved in advising patients or clients on aspects of nutrition.
