Summary

With a new Consumerism chapter, enhanced art and photos, and timely updates, this Second Editionof Nutrition and Youpersonalizes nutritionhelping you make healthy nutrition choices and encouraging you to become an informed consumer of nutrition information. Throughout, each vitamin and mineral are introduced in self-contained spreads, called Visual Summary Tables, that help you learn to identify the key aspects of each nutrient at a glance. You're encouraged to relate the science of nutrition to your own dietary habits, helping you to separate fact from fiction and to distinguish high-quality nutrient sources from those of lesser quality. After reading this book, you'll know to think critically about information sources and the claims made in the popular press and online. The MyPlate Editionfeatures a write-to-fit update so that you have the latest nutrition information right within your book.
