    Not really sure what you are looking for Orky.

    Are you trying to show how nutrition relates to good health?, to strong immune response?

    Some of the general health web sites like webmd or the Mayo Clinic's web site have articles on nutrition for different stages in life, like during pregnancy or for seniors.



    Or are you thinking more about lifelong health problems or diseases caused by poor nutrition prenatally? in childhood?


    Good luck to you,......and remember to use your "spellcheck"

    Try www.mdconsult.com .... you can sign up for a free intro subscription. You can access lots of different journals and reference books on this site.

    If you need help using it just let me know.... I've practically worn it out this past year!!!

    Have you searhed dietician web pages? You could call a nursing home and ask to speak to the dietician who may be able to provide you with everything you need. Would look good in your paper too.

    It would have served you better to have spent time in your local school/college library and seeking librarian's assistance in selecting science texts that spending "hours searching internet".
    Sounds like last minute plea... giving you benefit doubt.


    Try this search engine: www.google.com next time.

    My 10 minute search there found using " body defences + human life cycle":

    The Human Commensal Flora
    www.leeds.ac.uk/mbiology/ug/med/flora.html
