Written by one of the most influential authors in the field, Brown's Nutrition Through the Life Cycle, Seventh Edition, illustrates how nutrition impacts healthy people as they grow, develop and function through life stages. More student friendly than ever, its signature layered approach progresses from preconception to the end stages of the life cycle--alternating chapters between normal and clinical nutrition to give the complete picture of each topic. Including insight from leading experts, it reflects the latest research in its comprehensive coverage of nutritional needs, nutrition and disease outcomes, model programs, healthful diets, gene variants, nutrient-gene interactions and more. Case studies give students experience with real-world clinical applications and care standards. Also available: MindTap digital learning solution.
