Format: Paperback
Actual Reference Published in the BJN as opposed to the abridged one above:

B. Bowman & R. Russell, Present Knowledge in Nutrition. Vol. 2. Washington DC: International Life Sciences Institute, 2006, ISBN 9781578811991.

This, the second volume of Present Knowledge in Nutrition (9th edition), is similar in format and style to the first. It is a compilation of short review articles focusing on a wide range of nutritional topics including: nutrition and the life cycle; nutritional immunity; nutrition and chronic diseases; diet, food and nutrition; public health nutrition and international nutrition; and emerging issues. Each article is focused on specific points, covering the essentials of the topic.

Helpfully, each article is fully referenced, making cross referencing and further study on the topics quick and easy. I started by reading topics that I have direct experience of, specifically `diet, food and nutrition' and `public health & international nutrition'. The first of these sections contains chapters on food composition, dietary intake, taste and food selection, energy intake, obesity, and eating behaviours, strategies for changing eating and exercise behaviour, nutrition monitoring in the United States and international dietary standards:
FAO and WHO. These chapters were particularly informative, albeit a little `American-centric'. In `public health &
international nutrition', I found the chapters on the emergence of diet-related chronic diseases in developing countries particularly informative with regard to the impact of nutrition transition.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This excellent text provides a clear, concise, and technical review of the biochemistry of nutrition. It discusses the uptake, metabolism, utilization, storage, and excretion of fats, carbohydrates, proteins, minerals, and vitamins. It relates deficiencies with diseases such as cancer, hypertension, diabetes, obesity, and immune system deficiency. To fully benefit from this book, the reader should have some knowledge of biology, biochemistry, or physiology. However, even for those readers with minimal understanding of biological systems, the great diagrams and pictures will assist in understanding the basic fundamentals of nutrition. I know of no other text that provides as clear and complete an explanation of nutrition.
