Overview

With a new Consumerism chapter, enhanced art and photos, and timely updates, this Second Edition of Nutrition and You personalizes nutrition—helping you make healthy nutrition choices and encouraging you to become an informed consumer of nutrition information.

Throughout, each vitamin and mineral are introduced in self-contained spreads, called Visual Summary Tables, that help you learn to identify the key aspects of each nutrient at a glance. You’re encouraged to relate the science of nutrition to your own dietary habits, helping you to separate fact from fiction and to distinguish high-quality nutrient sources from those of lesser quality. After reading this book, you’ll know to think critically about information sources and the claims made in the popular press and online.

This book is also packaged with a Study Card showing what is new in nutrition from the USDA: the new MyPlate graphic (which replaces the former MyPyramid), the 2010 Guidelines, and the new Dietary Reference Intakes. Students also have access to this on the open access Companion Website.
