Book Description

Like its predecessors, the new and updated edition of Advanced Nutrition: Macronutrients, Micronutrients, and Metabolism is an essential textbook for advanced undergraduate and first-year graduate students studying human nutrition.

This book draws on inter-related sciences including biochemistry, genetics, and physiology to provide a full understanding of nutrition science. This third edition describes the chemistry, absorption, use and excretion of each of the essential nutrients. There is comprehensive coverage of nutrient-nutrient interactions and both macro and micronutrients.

The book places strong emphasis on how nutrient-genetic interactions function with respect to disease development. The new edition includes some of the most recent descriptions of the roles nutrients play in the expression of genetic traits for a variety of degenerative diseases. It includes a new chapter explains the function of microorganisms in the maintenance and development of chronic degenerative disease.

Features:

  • Chapters address clinical conditions such as obesity, starvation, hyperlipemia, renal disease and organ function.
  • Includes updated information on the body’s microbiotica and the daily nutrient needs of humans across the life cycle.
  • Material reveals the neurodegenerative response to dietary variables with respect to the regulation of food intake.
  • Chapter summaries highlight key information and case studies challenge students to integrate what they have learned to solve clinical cases.

year with Dr. Paul Griminger at Rutgers, she served as a research nutritionist at the USDA Human

Nutrition Institute in Beltsville, MD. At the same time, she also served as an assistant professor of

nutrition at the University of Maryland. Following these appointments, she moved to the University

of Nebraska, College of Medicine, and then in 1977 moved to the University of Georgia where she

served as the department head, Foods and Nutrition, for 11 years. She stepped down from this position

to resume full- time research and teaching with a special interest in diabetes. Her research has

been funded by a variety of funding agencies.

Dr. Berdanier has authored more than 120 research articles, contributed 40 chapters to

multiauthored books, prepared 45 invited reviews for scientifi c journals, and has edited/ coauthored

or sole authored 19 books. She has served on the editorial boards of the FASEB Journal , the

Journal of Nutrition, Biochemistry Archives, Nutrition Research , and the International Journal

of Diabetes Research . She also serves as an ad hoc reviewer for articles in her specialty for a

wide variety of scientifi c journals.

Lynnette A. Berdanier is a lecturer in the Department of Biology at the University of North Georgia,

Gainesville campus, Gainesville, GA. She teaches biology as well as anatomy and physiology and

medical microbiology. She earned her BS degree from the University of Nebraska, Kearney, NE, and

her MS degree in physiology from the University of Georgia, Athens, GA. She served as a lecturer at

Athens Technical College and at North Georgia College in Dahlonega prior to moving to her current
