Masterarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Ernahrungswissenschaft / Okotrophologie, Note: 2,3, Hochschule Fulda, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Public Health Nutrition Ziel von Public Health Nutrition ist es, durch gezielte Praventionsmassnahmen Krankheiten, die mit bestimmten Ernahrungsmustern zusammenhangen in der Bevolkerung zu vermeiden. Uber viele Jahre hin entwickelte sich die Disziplin Public Health Nutrition aus den Wissenschaften Biologie, Biochemie, Physiologie, Ernahrungswissenschaften sowie den Sozialwissenschaften. Die Besonderheit dieses relativ neuen Wissenschaftszweiges ist das multidisziplinare Vorgehen. Durch das Einbeziehen der unterschiedlichen Disziplinen konnen Probleme aus verschiedenen Blickwinkeln betrachtet und besser beurteilt werden. [Barry M Margetts, S.1] Health Nutriton wird in der Fachliteratur auf verschiedenste Weise definiert. Eine kurze und pragnante Definition von Agneta Yngve aus dem Jahre 1999 lautet wie folgt: Public Health Nutrition focuses on the promotion of good health through nutrition and physical activity and the prevention of related illness in the population" [Yngve, Public Health Nutrition, S. 449-452]"
