Editorial Reviews

Review

PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION:

"With Nutrition in the Prevention and Treatment of Disease, instructors have access to one comprehensive text to demonstrate the nutrition link to disease. ...it is a text a nutrition professional can feel confident in recommending to their clinical and community nutrition colleagues, as well as to dietetics students, epidemiologists and medical students."
--JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN DIETETIC ASSOCIATION

"It is strong on strategies for dietary modification and on cultural and socioeconomic influences on eating and exercise behavior. Unlike earlier textbooks, it has large sections on the genetic influences on nutritional health. ...is a useful additional resource for nutritional investigators and for dietitians involved in research."
--THE NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE

"Written by nutrition researchers and dieticians with extensive clinical experience, this book is a useful addition to the clinical nutritionist's bookshelf."
--AMERICAN JOURNAL OF CLINICAL NUTRITION

"...an excellent and timely addition to the field of clinical nutrition. ...A valuable resource, not only for nutrition students, but also for practicing nutrition professionals."
--CHOICE

"...provides an excellent overview of clinical nutrition, integrating the collective role of diet, genetics, environment, and behavior in healt and disease. ...All in all, this text is a comprehensive contribution to the field of clinical nutrition and provides an excellent reference for practitioners, researchers, and advanced nutrition students."
--INFORM

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Don't expect an exhaustive list of disorders or acute issues, as the title suggests "disease," so it explores a narrower range of
issues than expected, perhaps; for instance, there isn't anything devoted to insomnia or sleep, or anxiety. So this is more a nuts and bolts therapeutic devoted to the physical body, less so the brain and CNS. So very good in that range..

I got this book on interlibrary loan. There was so much detailed information of interest that I had to purchase the book myself so I could return the other to the library. It's an excellent resource.
