Contemporary Nutrition, A Functional Approach
Completely revised and up-to-date with MyPlate, Healthy People 2020 and Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2010, Contemporary Nutrition: A Functional... Approach is an alternate version of Wardlaw-Smith's Contemporary Nutrition, 9e. While Contemporary Nutrition: A Functional Approach shares the recognized strengths of the ninth edition, it offers a unique approach to the coverage of vitamins and minerals. It departs from a traditional presentation by instead organizing vitamins and minerals within the context of physiological functions and the health conditions they influence. The text will provide students who lack a strong science background the ideal balance of reliable nutrition information and practical consumer-oriented knowledge. With their friendly writing style, the authors act as the student's personal guide to dispelling common misconceptions and to gaining a solid foundation for making informed nutrition choices.
