Very interesting. I never thought of the pet food angle. I always assumed the people who developed pet food were more like scientists rather than nutritionists. Great Hub!
Sports today are more than just a mere competition. It has converted itself into a platform of brand eminence and passion. The pressure for the athletes to perform nothing but the best is immense. It is overwhelming to see today’s sportsmen achieve the impossible.An entire team is responsible for the success of an athlete or a team, and a sports nutritionist tops the chart of being responsible. An ideal sports nutritionist will aim at providing a holistic approach to his/her client.
Nutritional immunology is an emerging discipline that evolved with the study of the detrimental effect of malnutrition on the immune system. While malnutrition still remains a worldwide problem, life-stage [neonate or old age] and natural stress are increasingly becoming the major causes of lowered immune status in both humans and animals. Unlike immunodeficiency caused by malnutrition, life-stage and natural stress need a more comprehensive strategy and cannot be addressed simply by correcting nutritional problems. Lowered immune status because of life-stage or natural stress is characterized by a reduced of antigen presenting cells [APC] function, resulting in a less efficient or altered immune response, leading to increased susceptibility to infections disease, increase in autoimmunity and cancers.
“Nutritionist” is not a protected term in the UK, unlike “dietitian”; the latter must be registered with the Health Professions Council. Different organizations use their own criteria to define a nutritionist. According to one of these, The College for Nutrition, “the function of a nutritionist is to elicit, integrate, disseminate and apply scientific knowledge drawn from the relevant sciences, to promote an understanding of the effects of nutrition, and to enhance the impact of food on health and well-being of animals and/or people”. CfN accredits nutritionists, conferring the titles Associate Nutritionist (ANutr) and Associate Public Health Nutritionist (APHNutr). For these it considers an undergraduate training sufficient for associate membership. Full registration as a Registered Nutritionist (R Nutr.), or Registered Public Health Nutritionist (RPHNutr), requires at least three years work experience and the fulfilment of key competencies required to operate safely and effectively. Members must also agree to abide by a code of ethics and maintain the Society’s standards for working with the public.

In more recent times, a variety of snack bars have been marketed. These include bars that are intended as meal replacements as well as snack bars that are marketed as having nutritional advantages when compared to candy bars, such as granola bars. However, the actual nutritional value is often not very different from candy bars, except for usually a higher sodium content, and the flavors (most popularly, chocolate, fudge, and caramel) and the presentation mimic candy bars.
There’s a good reason very few nutritionists are overweight. Not only do nutrition professionals have a certain amount of nutrition data stored in their heads, they also can quickly digest a nutrition panel while grasping the bigger picture… beyond labels.
Plant nutrition is the study of the chemical elements that are necessary for plant growth. There are several principles that apply to plant nutrition. Some elements are directly involved in plant metabolism. However, this principle does not account for the so-called beneficial elements, whose presence, while not required, has clear positive effects on plant growth.
