Long description:
Human Nutrition: From Molecular Biology to Everyday Life presents an integrated approach on how nutrients and non-nutrients affect cellular biochemistry, and how, in turn, they shape human physiology. Over the course of 8 chapters, and covering topics ranging from the importance of diet on health to nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics, this book debunks myths and provides readers with the knowledge they need to critically interpret and navigate nutrition information. Intended for nutritionists, dieticians, pharmacists, public health professionals, and others working in related fields, this book provides a comprehensive source on advances in human nutrition.
