Introduction To Nutrition And Metabolism, Fourth Edition
An introductory text on the scientific basis of nutrition and metabolism, which are topics fundamental to the study of health and human science. It provides a firm grounding in the chemistry and biochemistry necessary to understand the subject clearly.; This book is intended for undergraduate students in human biology and the health and medical sciences. The book should be useful for reference by Project 2000 and other diploma students in nursing and the paramedical sciences, but is unlikely to be a class text with those groups.
