Details: Product Description Wardlaw's Perspectives in Nutrition has the richly-deserved reputation of providing an accurate, current, in-depth, and thoughtful introduction to the dynamic field of nutrition, and the eleventh edition has been enhanced for both students and instructors. This edition continues the tradition of presenting scientific content that is reliable, accurate, and up-to-date, and it incorporates coverage of recent nutrition research, as well as the recent updates to consumer guidelines and tools -- Dietary Guidelines for Americans, MyPlate, Healthy People 2020, and the new Nutrition Facts panel. It also retains the in-depth coverage students need to fully understand and appreciate the role of nutrition in overall health and to build the scientific knowledge base needed to pursue health-related careers or simply live healthier lives. To enhance these strengths and promote greater comprehension, new research findings and peer-reviewed references are incorporated and artwork is enhanced to further complement the discussions. The presentation of complex concepts was scrutinized to increase clarity through the use of clear, streamlined, precise, and student-friendly language. Timely and intriguing examples, illustrative analogies, clinical insights, culinary perspectives, historical notes, future perspectives, and thought-provoking photos make the text enjoyable and interesting to students and instructors alike.
