Discuss the accuracy, significance and generalizability of the disease-nutrient link and highlight the strengths and weaknesses of the link.
The work should not exceed six pages. When writing the assignment, use Times New Roman font, 12 pt, double spaced. Don’t forget to include a title page and a bibliography. A table of contents is not required. The bibliography must contain at least five different resources: three specialized articles or books; the other two can be websites, or books and articles. No more than two internet resources.
The work must focus on the link between a disease (cause, development, prevention or cure) and a nutrient (vitamins, minerals, antioxidants). The work must include a review of the literature on the disease and the nutrient.
In the introduction, you should introduce your subject by describing the disease and the nutrient in question and explaining how this nutrient promotes or combats the development of the disease. The introduction makes it possible to delimit the problem and specifies how it fits into the field of knowledge.
In the discussion, you must review the scientific literature that relates to the link between the disease and the nutrient. Consider all aspects of the research, making comparisons with other research already published. The discussion consists of integrating the information retained, explaining it and comparing it with the data presented in other works (literature review). Discuss the accuracy, significance and generalizability of the disease-nutrient link and highlight the strengths and weaknesses of the link.
The conclusion includes a summary of the whole and formulates recommendations as well as the main implications of the research.
