Fundamentals for Health Sciences
Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.
Food and Nutrition Economics offers a much-needed resource for non-economists looking to understand the basic economic principles that govern our food and nutritional systems. Comprising both a quick grounding in nutrition with the fundamentals of economics and expert applications to food systems, it is a uniquely accessible and much-needed bridge between previously disparate scholarly and professional fields.
This book is intended for upper level undergraduates, graduate students, and health professionals with no background in economics who recognize that economics likely affects much of their work.
