Nutritional Biochemistry includes a discussion of relevant aspects of physiology, food chemistry, toxicology, pediatrics, and public health. Experimental techniques for nutritional science are emphasized, and primary data is included to help give students a feel for the nutrition literature. This "real-world" approach provides students with a realistic view of the basis for much of our understanding of nutritional biochemistry.
- Integrates biochemistry and nutrition in a case-oriented method
- Emphasizes a hands-on approach to learning - case histories and clinical and research data illustrate all major points
- Places emphasis on metabolism - metabolic pathways, enzymology, nutrient requirements (including RDA values)
- Reveals the benefits of the Mediterranean diet, the biochemistry of exercise, the cell signaling pathways, how nutrition can influence the development of cancer, and the anthropometry and genetics of obesity
