Nourish your mind and body with NUTRITION: CONCEPTS AND CONTROVERSIES. More conversational than a pure-science text, this book explores the essentials of nutrition--including how the body breaks down and uses food, food safety, sports nutrition and special nutritional needs throughout the human life cycle--and asks you to weigh in on relevant debates, such as world hunger, chronic diseases, dietary guidelines and eating patterns. Available with the MindTap learning platform, the 15th edition also offers self-quizzing and activities to propel your learning from memorization to mastery.

About the Author:

Frances Sienkiewicz Sizer, M.S., R.D., F.A.D.A., attended Florida State University, where, in 1980, she received her B.S. and, in 1982, her M.S. in nutrition. She is certified as a charter Fellow of the American Dietetic Association. She is a founding member and vice-president of Nutrition and Health Associates, an information and resource centre in Tallahassee, Florida, that maintains an ongoing bibliographic database tracking research in more than 1,000 topic areas of nutrition. Her textbooks include Life Choices: Health Concepts and Strategies; Making Life Choices; The Fitness Triad: Motivation, Training, and Nutrition; and others. She is a primary author of Nutrition Interactive, an instructional college-level nutrition CD-ROM. In addition to writing, she lectures at universities and at national and regional conferences and serves actively on the board of directors of ECHO, a local hunger and homelessness relief organization in her community.

Eleanor Noss Whitney, Ph.D., received her B.A. in biology from Radcliffe College in 1960 and her Ph.D. in biology from Washington University, St. Louis, in 1970. Formerly on the faculty at Florida State University and a dietitian registered with the American Dietetic Association, she now devotes her full time to research, writing, and consulting in nutrition, health, and environmental issues. Her earlier publications include articles in Science, Genetics, and other journals. Her textbooks include Understanding Nutrition, Understanding Normal and Clinical Nutrition, Nutrition and Diet Therapy, and Essential Life Choices for college students and Making Life Choices for high school students. Her most intense interests include energy conservation, solar energy uses, alternatively fuelled vehicles, and ecosystem restoration. She is an activist who volunteers full-time for the Citizens Climate Lobby.
