It includes new material on genetics, regulation, food production, birth weight, lifestyle and cancer, and the implications of climate change for food production, safety and availability. Chapters are extensively illustrated with data and diagrams. The book is divided into the following sections: Human nutrition; Food systems; Security and policy; The biology of food components; Lifespan nutrition; Food and disease; Food and nutrition for individuals and society.
