Food & Nutrition: What Everyone Needs to Know

      Is it possible to fit everything one needs to know about nutrition in under 300 pages? P.K. Newby makes a valiant attempt. Newby begins by framing current global malnutrition and environmental challenges and making the case that food matters. The next section, a history of dining and farming practices that covers paleolithic time periods through current pop culture, gives perspective to current dining and agricultural practices. In this and the next sections on food and nutrients, theauthor uses numerous studies to settle controversies regarding food. Questions related to dairy, grains, animal products, alcohol, and even tea and coffee are asked and answered. The book concludes with common dietary recommendations and predictions of how technological advances might impact the future of food and nutrition.
