About

Overview

This title explores the nutritional issues associated with aging and the important metabolic consequences of diet, nutrition, and health. It is subdivided into four parts that cover the impact of nutrition from a biomolecular level to individual health. It is aimed at graduate students in nutrition and public health, as well as at researchers in aging, nutrition, gerontology, endocrinology, and related fields.
