About

Overview

It would be difficult to overstate the importance of food within the panoply of human existence. Over the course of millennia, food production has becoming increasingly sophisticated, up to and including genetic modification of plants and animals. Agricultural advances have influenced the types of food being consumed, and the nutrition gleaned therefrom. These detailed volumes offer a behind-the-scenes look at the role of food in our lives, including the cultivation of a field, the preparation of a meal, and the effect of nutrition on the human body.
