"This reference for students in high school and up addresses seven controversial issues in nutrition: food irradiation, genetically modified food, vitamins and supplements, vegetarianism, organic food, food safety, and bands on fast food and junk food. Background chapters give a brief history of the study of nutrition and the future of nutrigenomics, outline basic principles of nutrition, and explain currently accepted principles of good nutrition for men, women, and children. A section of references and resources includes annotated primary source documents, a nutrition timeline, a directory of organizations, and a glossary. A few B&W photos are also included."
