Science of Popular Diets: Impact of Nutrition on Human Wellness

Code:
GNED 1474

Students explore concepts of human nutrition as they relate to fad diets and cultural norms, while gaining an understanding of the impact nutrition has on wellness and disease. A range of popular and culturally-specific diets are critically examined and assessed based on current practice and scientific evidence. Using a variety of interactive learning tools, students investigate the links between the major nutrients and personal health. Further, comparison of individual diet and nutrition standards allows for a thorough understanding of connections between nutrition and health. Students use existing knowledge to evaluate the benefits and consequences of popular “fad” diets. Cultural diet norms and popular diet trends are explored with a focus on the overall impact on individual and population wellness. Finally, through scientific investigation of emerging literature, the impact of scientific change is appreciated.
