Summary "Despite campaigns such as 'five-a-day', and an increased understanding of the underlying biochemistry, health issues such as obesity, food allergies, and eating disorders are on the rise, demonstrating the vital importance of a basic understanding of the principles of a healthy diet. In this [book, the author] explores the basic elements of food, the balance between energy intake and exercise, the problems of over-and-under-nutrition, and questions of safety regarding nutritional supplements." -- Publisher description.
