Health & Physical Education

According to the World Hunger Education Service, there are about 815 million hungry people in the world, or more than 10 percent of our population. But hunger isn't just a problem in far-away places that you see on TV. In fact, about one in six American kids doesn't know where their next meal will come from. A regular lack of food--or, sometimes, too much unhealthy food--can result in the condition called malnutrition. This book will tell you everything you need to know about malnutrition--what it is, how it happens, and what we can do to end it. We have all heard the old saying, "you are what you eat." The six volumes in Health & Nutrition will explain the many ways in which the food choices you make every day can help or hurt your body's functioning. The books also look at physical fitness, the importance of good hygiene, and the many challenges of keeping food safe from contamination. From the key components of a balanced diet to avoiding foodborne illnesses, and from the impact of stress on health to how malnutrition hurts the body, these books are packed with useful information about protecting and improving your health.
