Plant biotechnology: The answer to your nutrition needs!
MetadataShow full item record
At its most basic level, food is the source of nutrition to meet daily requirements but is now taking on an ever-greater role in the quest for health optimization. The latter focus is a luxury that is primarily the purview of an affluent society and has little relevance in many areas where mere survival is the driving force. From the basic-nutrition perspective, there is a clear dichotomy in demonstrated need between different regions and socioeconomic groups, the starkest being addressing injudicious consumption in the developed world and under-nourishment in less developed countries (LDCs). Both extremes suffer from forms of malnourishment, one through inadequate supply, the other through inappropriate choices.
