Food:Man and Society


Abstract

This volume carries the papers presented at the Third Meeting of the International Organization for the Study of Human Development, held in Madrid on September 21 to 24, 1975. This organization which has its prime objective to bring together persons from wide range of disciplines concerned with human development, focuses its attention on the ecology of nutrition, as an integral part of human life and fundamental discipline in the area of biology. The triangular relationship between food, man. and society is brought out vividly with an interdisciplinary effort centered around an unified aim of characterizing food as a fundamental environmental influence exerting an effect on man at every level of biological organization, and to characterize man as an organism capable of reacting to food in a multiplicity of ways.
