Handbook of Behavior, Food and Nutrition Victor R. Preedy Ronald Ross Watson Colin R. Martin, editors Few phenomenaa€”if anya€”are as universal and fulfilling as eating. And few bonds are as intricate and personal as our relationship with food: our choices and preferences, our phobias and aversions, the sensory and emotional experience of eating. This relationship is reciprocal as well; as the components of food affect eatersa€™ behavior, so too do these responses impact what they eat, how much, and why. The Handbook of Behavior, Food and Nutrition explores both sides of this story, with over 200 chapters covering topics at the cellular, systemic, individual, and population levels (and ranging from prenatal feeding to nutritional decline in the elderly), geared to professionals across the behavioral, nutrition, food, and health fields.
