BIOL1050 - Conc & Controversies Nutrition
Fall 2014

This course begins with a general overview of the benefits of certain foods to human health. Nutrition standards and guidelines are recommended. The remarkable human body is discussed with particular emphasis on cells, hormones, digestive, and excretory systems. A thorough study of how carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, vitamins, and mineral chemistry affect the human organism is presented. The symbiosis between and among nutrients, energy, physical activity and weight control, and the body's responses to these interactions is explained. Proper nutrition and its benefits to disease prevention are emphasized. The life cycle nutrition from pregnancy to later-life years is discussed. Students become familiar with various nutritional charts and tables and, as a result, are encouraged to examine their own dietary practices and to modify their behavior to improve their nutritional health. The course concludes with an overview of the methods of food safety and food technology, hunger, and the global environment. Principles of scientific inquiry are integrated throughout the course.
