We will focus on the relationship between diet and health, and how the human body responds to different diets and food components, including protein, carbohydrate, fat, vitamins, minerals, water, and alcohol. We discuss the role of diet in disease and optimal health in light of the strengths and limitations of present knowledge of nutritional and medical science. The class meets for three hours each week: two hours of lecture and one hour of small discussion section. The lecture is webcast and is available at http://webcast.berkeley.edu . The lecture portion will be team-taught, with a variety of faculty members from the Nutritional Sciences and Toxicology department lecturing on different topics. The discussion sections are taught by Graduate Student Instructors (GSIs). C O U R S E M A T E R I A L S : Textbook: The Science of Nutrition. Thompson, Manore & Vaughan, 2007. Pearson publishing.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
