Human Growth, Physical Fitness and Nutrition (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


The future of society rests with the underdeveloped nations, where the majority of the population are in the years of growth. This book brings together data from leading experts in nutrition, exercise, growth and development to explore the extent to which the potential of children is being realized in various cultures at the present time, to highlight problems that are restricting development, and to suggest how conditions for growth can be optimized. Unique in blending the expertise of nutritionists and exercise scientists, it also draws the important lesson that a "developed" society is not necessarily optimal - lack of physical activity may have an adverse effect upon ultimate health that is just as serious as a lack of food. Utilizing data from a variety of cultures and socioeconomic groups, this text will appeal to paediatric physiologists and all those concerned with the health, nutrition and physical education of the growing child.
