It’s All about Nutrition is an introductory textbook designed specifically to capture the interest of general education students in nutrition. Students will want to read this textbook in its entirety, as David Bissonnette draws them into a more thoughtful study of the field of nutrition. He paints a backdrop describing the origins of our current dietary practices, nutrition within the history of human health, the emergence of the science of nutrition, the history of the U.S. food industry, and the prevalence of malnutrition in the United States during the 1930s. Within these historical contexts, It’s All about Nutrition describes vitamin and mineral deficiencies, the obesity epidemic, family nutrition, chronic disease, and world hunger to offer readers a comprehensive look at the field of nutrition in the United States.
