Several times a day you make a decision about whether to eat, and if so, what to eat. When, how much, and what kind of food you eat has a tremendous impact on how you feel, what you look like, how well you function, and what health you will enjoy (or suffer) throughout your life.

BIOLOGY 105 is a natural science course for undergraduates who want to learn about human nutritional needs. It will give students a biologically sound foundation on which to make judgments about personal and public health related to food consumption and production. BIOLOGY 105 does not require any prerequisite other than a strong desire to learn about this subject for practical and personal empowerment. BIOLOGY 105 will discuss human physiology as it relates to human nutrition; the content and availability of nutrition in food sources; the effect on human health of dietary choices; how food has been and is now grown, processed, and marketed, and the impact of these practices on human health; food safety issues related to food poisoning organisms and food additives; and special nutritional needs of pregnancy and feeding babies.

Plenary lectures and small GSI-lead discussions.
