The explosion of new information in the last five years about such topics as the interrelated and protective role of both nutrition and physical activity in many disease processes, including coronary heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis, and obesity, has refocused attention on course content. To this end, the original textbook has been broadened, starting with a new title, "Introduction to Nutrition, Exercise, and Health". The term "health" in the title is added because coverage of this area is more robust, and the relationship between exercise and nutrition and health is more direct. Examples include sections on exercise, nutrition, and osteoporosis, basic nutrition and cancer, physical activity and coronary heart disease prevention, primary and secondary risk factors and their relation to both diet and exercise, physical activity and pregnancy outcome, and the clear interrelationships among nutrition, weight control, and exercise. This edition also contains new chapters on food advertising, food packaging, and food labelling, and separate chapters devoted to carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, vitamins, minerals, and water. The workbook/study guide contains information on fitness tests, dietary recall, expense calories, body composition, flex exercises and self-administered labs.
