Barasi's Human Nutrition: a health perspective provides a comprehensive introduction to the basic principles of nutrition. Thoroughly revised, restructured and updated, the new edition covers the application of nutrition in the protection of health, and presents up-to-date scientific information in an accessible and reader-friendly format. The new edition places more emphasis on applied nutrition; specifically, sections relating to clinical nutrition and public health nutrition are now separate chapters, with new chapters on sport nutrition, obesity and weight management. Each chapter will have a dedicated table of contents to better highlight the subject covered. The book also focuses on nutritional issues relating to major disease in the West, such as coronary heart disease, cancer and diabetes, while discussing methods of studying nutrition and the essential principles of diet structure. This is an invaluable source for students of Nutrition and those pursuing further qualifications in Food Science.
