Encyclopedia of Human Nutrition, Fourth Edition, a Four Volume Set, provides updated information on the foundations of nutrition science, along with the biology and functions of vitamins and other essential nutrients present in the human diet. The book's content offers a modern understanding of the links between diet and health effects, including diseases of recognized nutritional etiology. This overview of the genetic and molecular aspects of nutrient-health interrelationships includes important content on topics like nutrigenomics, metabolomics and the microbiome. In addition, the book provides global context, particularly on the issue of food production, sustainability and climate change.

The new edition carries on the legacy of a reference work that comprehensively offers a one-source, integrated bank of information on all three areas – food, nutrition science and clinical nutrition.
