It seems that practically every day there is news about some new super-nutrient, super diet, or super food that promises to help us to be healthier, smarter, happier, fight disease, lose weight, or live longer. Some of this information propels temporary food or diet fads, some of it is subsequently discredited, and some becomes staid wisdom of healthy eating. Food and Nutrition: What Everyone Needs to Know(R) sorts through this information and looks at food systems globally and historically, providing an overview of the relationship between humans, the environment, and food.
