The original articles in this book, when taken together, evidence the biological predominance of nutritional anthropology as an area of study. Deals with nutrition as a process, by which humans utilize food and as a science--studying the body's chemical and biological use of food. It encompasses a broad approach to the subject matter, ranging from evolutionary concerns to a consideration of ways to help alleviate the nutritional problems of the Third World. Collectively, chapters provide a picture of nutritional anthropology as seen by a sample of those working actively in this area. A number of chapters deal with the scientific methodology practiced by researchers while others cover the human life cycle.
