UNDERSTANDING NORMAL AND CLINICAL NUTRITION, Seventh Edition, provides the most current and comprehensive coverage of both "normal" nutrition, such as digestion and metabolism, vitamins and minerals, and life cycle nutrition, as well as "clinical" nutrition related to diseases, such as nutrition and gastrointestinal, liver, and cardiovascular diseases. The text also incorporates a number of learning tools designed to help students both retain the information and apply their knowledge so they are better prepared to work in a clinical setting. Features include case studies, "How To" boxes with examples of problem-solving in real world situations, and study questions that further conceptual understanding of the material. Regardless of the students' course background, the text is organized and written in a clear, easy to follow format that will engage and enable them to be actively involved in the field of nutrition.
