Nutrition A Health Promotion Approach Third Edition
The third edition of this highly regarded introductory textbook continues to cover all aspects of nutrition, including nutritional epidemiology, social aspects of nutrition, the science of food as a source of energy and essential nutrients, and the microbiological safety of food and food processing. Its focus is on nutrition in industrialized nations where nutritional deficiencies in the traditional sense are less of an issue, but the roles of diet in causing or preventing chronic disease and maintaining good 'life-long' health and well-being are gaining ever-increasing attention. The importance of good health promotion is therefore a guiding principle throughout the book, supported by a section devoted to health promotion theory. Nutrition - a health promotion approach is the book of choice for first year nutrition students looking for a readable but comprehensive introduction to the field, dieticians undertaking the nutrition components of their course, and other students undertaking nutrition modules as part of a broader scientific or professional course such as food science or catering.
The Encyclopedia of Obesity and Eating Disorders Third Edition
For millennia the normal, natural and pleasurable activity of eating has been surrounded by fear and anxiety. Religious traditions have long decreed what foods are right for their followers to eat, but secularisation and scientific progress have not made the situation easier. Our present obsession with health, obesity, ethics and science has seemingly developed from a society that is over-supplied with the necessities of life. For the first time, social historian Stephen Halliday looks at the history of our fascinating relationship with food, from Galen in the first century AD declaring that fruit was the worst kind of food to eat, to John Kellogg's belief that eating wholegrain cereals would prevent masturbation and bring people closer to God. Through modern fears and food scares such as mad cow disease to our current fascination with superfoods, 'friendly' bacteria and organic farming, Our Troubles with Food is a thorough analysis of our changing attitudes towards food and a reminder that we are not so very different from our forbears after all.
