A DSM and Sight and Life Foundation-led editorial board has launched a new book to provide the latest perspectives on the nutrition challenges that are now common to all societies worldwide. It argues that the case for good nutrition for all people, in all parts of the globe and throughout the entire life-cycle, is growing stronger and includes contributions from some of the world’s most influential and respected experts in the field.
This new publication is firmly set within the context of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which were officially ushered in on 1 January 2016. Secondly, it pays attention to both the developed and the developing worlds. As a result, it juxtaposes the nutrition challenges of different world regions in order to highlight the differences in nutrition status as well as the many problems that are now common to populations across the globe.
‘Good Nutrition: Perspectives for the 21st Century’, builds on DSM’s first publication, ‘The Road to Good Nutrition’, which was awarded first prize in the health and social care category of the British Medical Association (BMA) annual medical book awards. The book is written with the general reader in mind, and offers insights and opinions from some of the world’s most influential and respected experts in the field. Divided into five sections, each chapter is fully self-contained and offers recommendations for further reading. Graphics and case studies from a wide variety of sources enrich the flow of the narrative.
