Around the world, we find ourselves facing global epidemics of obesity, Type 2 Diabetes and other predominantly diet-related diseases. To address these public health crises, we urgently need to explore innovative strategies for promoting healthful eating. There is strong evidence that global increases in the consumption of heavily processed foods, coupled with cultural shifts away from the preparation of food in the home, have contributed to high rates of preventable, chronic disease. In this course, learners will be given the information and practical skills they need to begin optimizing the way they eat. This course will shift the focus away from reductionist discussions about nutrients and move, instead, towards practical discussions about real food and the environment in which we consume it. By the end of this course, learners should have the tools they need to distinguish between foods that will support their health and those that threaten it. In addition, we will present a compelling rationale for a return to simple home cooking, an integral part of our efforts to live longer, healthier lives.

來自STANFORD INTRODUCTION TO FOOD AND HEALTH的熱門評論
It was very informative course. It could have more quizzes and assignments. The way things were explained in the course was quiet interesting. Keep it up!! course. I really like this way of education.
Very informative and useful. I'm from India and I look forward to study more about nutritional values of different foods. This course gave me a head-start and information to pursue my goal. Thank You!
Extremely interesting course. I feel the material and videos were very easy to absorb and understand. I certainly would recommend this to anyone with an interest in food and how it affects our health.
Though It's a very (very very) basic course, it provided clear information, which acts as a kind of wake-up-call for not abusing on processed foods. I'll definitely adjust my diet based on it. Thanks!
It was an amazing course that allowed for me to be much more conscious of what I was eating and pushed me to strive to achieve a healthier lifestyle. Overall, it was very entertaining and informative!
Very informative and digestible information (pun intended). This course really makes you feel knowledgable about what you put into your body. Highly suggest this course for basic guides on nutrition.
This course is a good preparation for those who are interested in acknowledging more on human being health. After completing the course, I figured out much more than I could imagine in the beginning.
Excellent introduction for the majority who have misguided beliefs about their eating habits; with some general background information and simple guide lines for improving physical and mental health.
Great course, simple yet very informative. I really enjoyed the way it was filmed, with different charts, examples and real life shots. Also the interview-style learning. Both instructors were great.
Enjoyable and easy to understand. This course gave me information about nutrition that makes it easier to connect what food you put into your body to how it affects your overall health and wellbeing.
I learn about basic ingredients which can help cooking much more easier than the way I cooked before. I know now what need to eat to keep myself and my family physically fit and healthy all the time.
Exciting way to learn, instructed by well spoken educators. An extremely helpful course anyone can benefit from. Topics are explained thoroughly and in a way that makes retaining the information fun.
