Nutrition: Everyday Choices provides students with the decision-making skills needed throughout their lifespan to navigate the myriad of choices they will face in promoting their good health and in preventing disease.  A critical thinking approach and a solid underpinning of the process of science empowers students to be knowledgeable consumers when faced with diverse information about emerging diseases such a SARS, biotech foods and gene therapy.  As students apply the thought processes and decision-making skills learned throughout the course, they come to understand that there are not “good” foods and “bad” foods, but rather that each choice is only part of an overall healthy diet and that it is the sum of those choices that determines good nutrition.
A workbook for day-to-day decisions
"Mitochondrial Nutrition & Mitochondrial Medicine for Primary Care Conditions" is now updated and expanded to 466 colorized pages as "Mitochondrial Nutrition and Endoplasmic Reticulum Stress in Primary Care, 2nd Edition"; this revision-published in full-color, with additional video access, and expanded and more detailed clinical protocols-translates important concepts and nutritional/biomedical science into easy and practical clinical applications for the prevention and treatment of disorders of sustained inflammation, which Dr Vasquez describes as "patterns of metabolic disturbance and inflammatory dysfunction" existing in three sequential and overlapping categories: 1) metabolic, 2) allergic, 3) autoimmune. This textbook introduces, reviews, substantiates the intellectual and empirical construct of a sufficiently/practically complete approach-organized as the "functional inflammology protocol"-to the prevention and treatment disorders of *sustained inflammation*, previously termed "chronic inflammation." This book includes access to video presentations which introduce the origin and components of the Functional Inflammology Protocol and FINDSEX(r) acronym. Post-publication updates to this information and important social and clinical contextualization are contained in the accompanying videos-hyperlinks and passwords are provided via websites and newsletters as described within the textbook. Dr Vasquez describes "the new mitochondrial medicine" in an insightful and paradigm-shifting editorial published in Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine (January 2014).
