Key Benefit: The Science of Nutrition, Second Edition's uniquely organized using an applied approach, which organizes vitamins and minerals based on their functions and effects on the body. This applied approach of the textbook is most evident in the functional organization of the micronutrient (vitamin and mineral) chapters.

Rather than requiring readers to memorize all the vitamins and minerals and their characteristics, the authors present them based on their functions (like fluid and electrolyte balance, antioxidant function, bone health, energy metabolism, and blood and immunity health), so that readers can understand their effects on the body.

The Second Edition adds new learning aids to further help readers learn and apply the material. Additionally, learning and teaching aids have been expanded for readers, including a new version of My Diet Analysis, available in both online and CD-ROM formats.

Key Topics:

The Role of Nutrition in Our Health, Designing a Healthful Diet, The Human Body: Are We Really What We Eat', Carbohydrates: Bountiful Sources of Energy and Nutrients, In-Depth: Alcohol, Lipids: Essential Energy-Supplying Nutrients, Proteins: Crucial Components of All Body Tissues, Metabolism: From Food to Life, In-Depth: Vitamins &Minerals: Micronutrients with Macro Powers, Nutrients Involved in Energy Metabolism, Nutrients Involved in Fluid and Electrolyte Balance, Nutrients Involved in Antioxidant Function, In-Depth: Phytochemicals and Functional Foods, Nutrients Involved in Bone Health, Nutrients Involved in Blood Health and Immunity, Achieving and Maintaining a Healthful Body Weight, In-Depth: Disordered Eating, Nutrition and Physical Activity: Keys to Good Health, Food Safety and Technology: Impact on Consumers, Nutrition Through the Life Cycle: Pregnancy and the First Year of Life, Nutrition Through the Life Cycle: Childhood and Adolescence, Nutrition Through the Life Cycle: The Later Years, Global Nutrition, Appendices, Answers to Review Questions, Glossary, Index, Credits
