Energy and Life. Bioenergetics

Description:

This little 98-page book offers a complete view of the energy that living beings need for their survival. In order to do that, the authors start the book with an explanation of basic concepts such as the different sources of energy, the basic chemical elements of a living organism, and the different ways those organisms have developed to catch energy. Then, the authors talk about the way in which that energy is used, the processes that involve an expense or transformation of energy. Finally, the authors analyze in simple terms the relationship between nutrition and energy, what are calories, how can they be quantified, and which are the most basic elements of a balanced diet.
