This new Foundations of General, Organic, and Biochemistry is designed to help undergraduate health-related majors, and students of all other majors, understand key concepts and appreciate the significant connections between chemistry, health, disease, and the treatment of disease. Foundations, just like its parent text, strikes a balance between theoretical and practical chemistry, while emphasizing material that is unique to health-related studies. Foundations of General, Organic and Biochemistry is designed for the one semester allied health chemistry course. This text has an easy-to-follow problem-solving approach, vivid illustrations, and engaging applications including timely "Chemistry at the Crime Scene" applications with "For Further Understanding" questions that follow to help the students think through what they just read. The art program, engaging and thought provoking questions, problems, and discussion topics, is what will make this book appealing to students and instructors alike.
