Nutrition is a vital part of healthy living, and interest in questions of nutrition is great. While an almost unlimited wealth of groceries is available, many people are disconcerted by constant scandals and no longer know what can be eaten safely. Some people just 'eat what they like', while others focus on a conscious, health-orientated way of eating.
The dtv-Atlas of Nutrition provides a well-grounded survey on all important questions in this field. It contains information about current subjects such as the state of nutrition in the world, irradiated and genetically altered food, illnesses caused by food, diets and important nutrition substances. An extensive bibliography and index complete the book.
