This course provides an understanding of basic nutrition science for students with limited science backgrounds. The course is open to all interested students, as what you eat and drink has a large influence on your health and well-being. BIO 105 is a suitable introduction for students interested in pursuing careers in human health fields or veterinary medicine. The course will explore: nutrition research study designs; the biological functions and food sources of each nutrient class; diet planning; government standards and food labeling; the role of nutrition in chronic diseases; energy balance, weight management, and physical activity; current nutrition-related controversies; and food safety and security issues.
