The 2nd edition of Visualizing Nutrition, expands upon the 1st introductory issue and continues to provide valuable information on central issues of nutritional science in a visual approach. The text includes critical topics of nutrition, to help readers understand the topics through demonstration of their relevance to their personal life.  The material provides decision-making skills needed to navigate the myriad of choices readers face in promoting good health and preventing disease.    Visualizing Nutrition's critical thinking approach and a solid underpinning of the process of science empowers readers to be knowledgeable consumers when faced with diverse information about emerging diseases such a SARS, biotech foods and gene therapy.  As they apply the thought processes and decision-making skills learned throughout the course, they come to understand that there are not "good" foods and "bad" foods, but rather that each choice is only part of an overall healthy diet and that it is the sum of those choices that determines good nutrition.  The premier art program, interactive components, and applicable content, make this a sure winner in sharing ones passion for Nutrition.
