Your Final Project should address the following points: 

Explain the connection between nutrition and disease.

 Be sure to include information on chronic diseases, as well as malnutrition and other leading causes of death

. Examine the factors (e.g., social, psychological, philosophical, and physical), contemporary nutrition controversies, and cultural differences that drive our food choices. Analyze the sources and functions of macro- and micronutrients and their impact on our health and well-being. 

Explain the digestion, absorption, and metabolism of the macronutrients (carbohydrate, protein, and fat). Make sure to appraise the parts of the body involved in these processes

. Evaluate the nutritional requirements across the lifespan – from pregnancy to childhood, and from adolescence to adulthood.
