ABC of Nutrition

DESCRIPCIÓN DEL TEXTO

Nutrition (also called nourishment or aliment) is the provision, to cells and organisms, of the materials necessary (in the form of food) to support life. Many common health problems can be prevented or alleviated with a healthy diet. The diet of an organism refers to what it eats. Dietitians are health professionals who specialize in human nutrition, meal planning, economics, preparation, and so on.

This well established ABC has been updated with new charts, illustrations and guidelines on aspects of nutrition which affect heart disease, blood pressure, chronic diseases such as diabetes and some types of cancer. The book also contains the most current nutritional recommendations for pregnancy and infant feeding as well as advice for children and adults young and old. With chapters covering nutritional deficiencies in both developing and affluent countries as well as eating disorders and obesity, this latest edition has worldwide relevance.
