Barasi's Human Nutrition: A Health Perspective, Third Edition, provides a comprehensive introduction to the principles and practice of nutrition. Thoroughly revised, restructured, and updated, this new edition presents up-to-date scientific information in an accessible and reader-friendly format, emphasising how important nutrition is for evidence across the full translational health spectrum, from epidemiology and basic sciences through clinical and public heath applications, and ultimately into sustainable public policy.

This third edition places more emphasis on applied nutrition than previous editions. Specifically, sections relating to clinical nutrition, public health nutrition, and improving foods for better health are now separate chapters with new chapters on sport nutrition, obesity, and weight management, and each section has a dedicated table of contents to better highlight the subject covered. The book also focuses on nutritional issues related to globally important, potentially preventable, major diseases, such as coronary heart disease, cancer, and diabetes, and discusses methods for studying nutrition and relevant essential dietary principles for intervention. 

This textbook is written from the perspective of experienced teachers at the undergraduate and graduate levels and is an invaluable resource for students in health and nutrition and for those pursuing further qualifications in food science. While containing substantial detail on some interesting topics, this book is written in an ‘easy-read’ style, which makes potentially complicated subjects accessible to general readers as well as to the more specialised user. It provides both an entry-level introduction to human nutrition for introductory or intermediate undergraduate students and also sufficient comprehensive detail to serve as a reference book for Masters or PhD students.
