Nutrition: Science and Applications with Booklet package / Edition 2

Nutrition: Science and Applications, 2e helps students develop the scientific understanding to support their personal and professional decisions. Using a critical thinking approach, Smolin brings nutrition out of the classroom and allows students to apply the logic of science to their own nutrition concerns - both as consumers and as future scientists and health professionals. The text and WileyPLUS course has been developed through a collaboration between the authors and the Nutrition Advisory Board, a team of dedicated nutrition instructors who help review and develop all of Wiley's nutrition resources.
