Having ensured a basic knowledge in nutrition with Introduction to Human Nutrition, this book allows students to explore nutrition and metabolism across the various systems of the body rather than to deal in advanced aspects of nutrition and metabolism on a nutrient by nutrient basis or by group of nutrients. Thus there is not an identifiable chapter on Vitamin A; this vitamin is covered in all of these chapters: The Nutrient Requirements of Tissues and Organs, The Sensory System, Molecular aspects of Nutrition, The Reproductive System, The immune and inflammatory System and Under-nutrition. Nutrition & Metabolism provides the student with the detailed information they need about how different nutrients effect and are required by different parts of the body. This allows the student to concentrate on parts of the body at one time rather than concentrating on each individual nutrient or mineral, making the information more assessable and easier to digest.

Essen und Trinken ist für uns so alltäglich, daß wir gar nicht mehr überlegen, was uns eigentlich veranlaßt, etwas zu uns zu nehmen beziehungsweise eine Mahlzeit zu beenden. Hunger allein ist es nämlich nicht, auch nicht nur der gute Geschmack einer Speise und schließlich auch nicht allein der physische Bedarf an Nährstoffen. Vielmehr kommen diese und weitere Faktoren in einem komplexen Steuerungssystem zusammen, das überdies auch von kulturellen Einflüssen bis hin zu Moden - wie etwa den wechselnden Schlankheitsidealen - beeinflußt wird. A. W. Logue, führende Ernährungspsychologin in den USA, stellt in ihrem spannend geschriebenen Buch die psychologisch und biologisch raffinierten Steurmechanismen unseres Ernährungsverhaltens vor, wobei ihr eine Quadratur des Kreises gelingt: Was für Studenten als kompetente Einführung in eine praxisorientierte Ernährungswissenschaft gedacht war, liest sich für Laien wie eine Entdeckungsreise. Dabei erlebt man einige Aha-Effekte, die den Umgang mit Eßstörungen erleichtern könnten, und man erfährt im Anhang therapeutisch wichtige Adressen.

Nutrition is a topic of wide interest and importance. In spite of growing understanding of the underlying biochemistry, and health campaigns such as 'five-a-day', increasing obesity and reported food allergies and eating disorders, as well as the widely advertised 'supposed' benefits of food supplements mean that a clear explanation of the basic principles of a healthy diet are vital. In this Very Short Introduction, David Bender explains the basic elements of food, the balance between energy intake and exercise, the problems of over- and under-nutrition, and raises the question of safety of nutritional supplements. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

Das Buch führt ein in das zunehmend wichtige Feld ​der ökonomischen Nachhaltigkeit und verbindet verschiedene Disziplinen: Umweltwissenschaft, Umweltökonomie und Wirtschaftsökonomie sowie Wachstumstheorien. Da Nachhaltigkeit verschiedene Lesarten hat, verfolgt der Autor zwei Intentionen: eine Systematik in Maßnahmen, Modelle und Management der Nachhaltigkeit zu bringen sowie den Zugang zu diesem komplexen, interdisziplinären Thema zu erleichtern. Das Buch schließt eine Lücke zwischen den Disziplinen und wird damit zum wichtigsten Ratgeber derzeit, um die aktuellen Konzepte zu verstehen und anzuwenden. Als Lehrbuch konzipiert, ist es auch für gesellschaftlich Interessierte geschrieben. Zahlreiche, eigen erstellte Illustrationen visualisieren die Ausführungen.

Chapters within this important book cover vital health issues, including details of the links between diet and cardiovascular disease, obesity, cancer, diabetes and osteoporosis.
