OverviewRevised and updated with the latest epidemiologic research, the Second Edition of Life Cycle Nutrition: An Evidence-Based Approach explores nutritional foundations and the growth, development and normal functioning of individuals through each stage of life. With subjects as diverse as media influences on eating, skipping breakfast, fruit juice consumption, and clinical nutrition, this text gives students current knowledge, helps them evaluate emerging knowledge, and prepares them to uncover new knowledge for the public, their clients, and themselves. The Second Edition takes a topical, multi-disciplinary approach to the physiological, biochemical, sociological, and developmental factors that affect nutrient requirements and recommendations at the various stages of the life cycle. The issues surrounding topics such as chronic disease in adults are discussed throughout the adult stage. This approach makes it easier for students to relate nutrition concepts and epidemiologic research to the stages of life.
