Expanded and updated, the new edition of Advanced Nutrition: Macronutrients, Micronutrients, and Metabolism continues in the tradition of its predecessor, serving as an essential textbook for advanced undergraduate and first-year graduate students studying human nutrition. The book incorporates fundamental concepts in nutrition science-while also acknowledging the contributions made by other sciences such as biochemistry, genetics, and physiology-in order to help us understand why specific nutrients are required. It provides comprehensive coverage of both macro and micronutrients, emphasizing each nutrient's description, absorption, use, and excretion. Highlights of the Second Edition include * Chapters addressing exercise, obesity, starvation, and trauma * Updates with respect to nutrigenomics and nutrient-gene interactions within specific topics * Expansion of the aging effects with regard to life cycle and nutrient-specific chapters * Nutrition requirement comparisons among different species and animal models for human diseases * The chemistry and physiology of each essential nutrient and its integration in the body * Chapter summaries, case studies, problem-solving activities, and critical thinking questions * Web addresses and expansion and updating of the reference lists at the end of each chapter Ancillary material designed to enhance the teaching experience is provided for instructors on PowerPoint(R) slides.

The new edition of the Handbook of Nutrition and Food follows the format of the bestselling earlier editions, providing a reference guide for many of the issues on health and well being that are affected by nutrition. Completely revised, the third edition contains 20 new chapters, 50 percent new figures, and updates to most of the previously existing chapters. Part I is devoted to food, including its composition, constituents, labeling, and analysis. There is also a chapter on the laws that regulate food and its protection. Part II focuses on nutrition as a science, covering basic terminology, nutritional biochemistry, nutrition and genetics, food intake regulation, and micronutrients. This section also includes a chapter on the nutritional needs of nonhuman species and a chapter on finding mouse models for human disease studies. Part III discusses the nutrient needs of humans, from infants to older adults, as well as needs under special circumstances, such as elite athletes, vegetarians, and space travelers. Part IV addresses assessment of nutrient intake adequacy. Part V examines clinical nutrition, from assessments in the clinic setting through the many conditions that are likely to be presented in a medical practice. New to this edition: * More websites cited for accessing large data sets * A complete chapter on food intake regulation * Several chapters relating to the legal aspects of food (food law, food labeling) * Additional focus on food sanitation and food safety * Expanded coverage of drugs and nutrition * Integration of major health issues with a significant number of new disease chapters, including nutrition and immune function, dental health, renal disease, brain function, frail elderly and hospitalized patients, and food addiction and obesity * New chapters on nutrition and genetics, which include epigenetics and polymorphism-nutrient interactions.

Today's knowledge of human health demands a multidisciplinary understanding of medically related sciences, and Case Studies in the Physiology of Nutrition answers the call. Dedicated to the integration of nutrition science with physiology, this text cohesively incorporates descriptions of human problems in order to stimulate students' critical thinking about how the body integrates various physiological factors to maintain homeostasis. Contains Key Points, Vocabulary Exercises, and Critical Thinking Problems This textbook uses short story-type case studies about fictional individuals who have health problems in order to address a range of issues in an approachable manner. The studies vary in difficulty, with some being straightforward with very simple answers, while others require in-depth thinking and literature research to solve. Each study presents patient background, symptoms, clinical finding, and questions to ponder. Upon qualifying course adoption, this book also includes a valuable instructor's manual, which provides solutions to exercises, problem analysis, and resolution to each case study. This ready-to-implement resource addresses: * Homeostasis * Obesity and malnutrition * Anemia and diabetes * Nutrient-gene expression * Immune system * Food safety * Aging and nutrition * Muscle and bone studies Case Studies in the Physiology of Nutrition provides an understanding of nutritional components by defining biochemical, mechanical, and physical functions. Its unique approach will aid students in relating functionality to system failure as well as understanding the role of environment in health and nutrition.
