Nutrition and Living Today and Tomorrow.

Nutrition and Living Today and Tomorrow

Whilst the world faces a great challenges, one of the greatest is the problem of how we feed a hungry population. The author examines the role of food in the historical sense, at this present time and the requirements of the future. He sets out to provide an interpretation of current information on the relationship between health, diet and eating habits. For instance, he examines factors such as exercise, smoking, stress and nutrition as they affect the population.

The scope of his coverage is indicated by the chapters entitled: Population and food supply - is there really a problem?; Overnutrition and undernutrition - a paradox of our time; Deficiencies of specific nutrients in out diet - what are the consequences?; Excesses of specific nutrients in the diet - what are the consequences?; Cardiovascular diseases-hyperthension, blood lipids and other risk factors; Cardiovascular diseases-obesity, diet, behaviour and reversibility; Nutrition and cancer; Diabetes and other diseases, immunity and food sensitivity; Current food consumption trends, concerns and prospects - interactive forces; and Recommended dietary allowances of nutrients - a dynamic and continuous process.

For all those with a broader interest in the social and nutritional problems of the world, and those understanding that the developed nations of the world are taking too large a share of the harvest, this is a thought-provoking book.
