Aperçus sur la nutrition et le métabolisme


Perception of Nutrition and Metabolism

Kurt Glover


To show that nutrition science, with its application to food and nutrition policy, now we need a new conceptual framework. This will incorporate nutrition in its current definition as principally a biological science, now including nutritional aspects of genomics. It will also create new governing and guiding principles; specify a new definition; and add social and environmental dimensions and domains. A narrative review of nutrition science, its successes and achievements, and its dilemmas, paradoxes, shortcomings, dissonances and challenges are a part of Insights in Nutrition and Metabolism Journal. Nutrition in principle and practice should be a biological and also an environmental and social science. This new broad integrated structure brings much recent and current progressive work into the centre of nutrition science, and in some ways is a renewal of the period when nutrition science had its greatest impact.
