You’ve heard the axiom, “we are what we eat,” but how exactly do steaks, veggies, and ice cream become us? You don’t have to be a scientist to enjoy exploring human biology from a different perspective — from the molecular to the global level. Discover the
differences between carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. See how we digest and assimilate these foods. Find out how cells burn them for fuel and how DNA can change them into our own muscle, bones, and skin. Finally, learn how the delicate balance of nature is ultimately dependent on the nutritional interrelationships present in every ecosystem on earth.
Silver Member: $85; Gold Member: $76.50.
