Nutrition & Society (Nutrition: a Global View)

Nutrition & Society takes a broad view of society and presents nutrition in many contexts, including nutrition and cultural society, exploring the nutrition and dietary habits and customs in many cultures of the world; popular culture and nutrition, examining food fads and diets and food advertising and the portrayal on TV and in movies; geography and nutrition, looking at how local produce and food products influence diet and nutrition and how food is shipped around the world; and nutrition in social history, relating how the idea of what constitutes good nutrition has changed over the course of time. This insightful volume compares how American teenagers look at food and nutrition with the nutritional food and nutrition habits of their counterparts in Asia, South America, Africa, Europe, and other regions.
