Nutrition is the science that studies the process of taking in and utilizing food for metabolism, growth and repair. Nutritionists study how foods are converted into simpler compounds used by the body, and how food choices can lead to greater overall health, or contribute to disease development.The nutrition program provides in depth courses on nutrient metabolism; later courses apply that knowledge to specialized topics in nutrition, such as nutrition and disease treatment or prevention, sports nutrition, or nutrigenomics (how nutrients affect gene expression).
