BIOL 220 – Nutrition

Credits: 4

Food is essential for human life. What we eat can have a broad impact biological functioning of an individual, from the level of the individual to the level of the cell.  In this course, we will explore how the various micro- and macronutrients are metabolized and used within the body, and how what we eat can affect human health in different ways.  Students will develop the skills to conduct nutritional analyses of various diets as well as the ability to use scientific evidence to critically evaluate various food fads and controversies.
