The nutritional sciences are concerned with the process by which living matter acquires substances called nutrients for growth, repair and energy, but the science of nutrition is better defined as being concerned with understanding the effects of food on the body in both health and disease; current research is concerned with identifying dietary factors that are associated with increased risk of chronic disease and understanding the metabolic basis for diet related disease.
