Editorial Reviews

Review

Reviews of the First edition "Given the amount and complexity of nutrition research, this book provides a valuable contribution to providers requiring comprehensive yet accessible information. The author's objective to provide strategies for prevention are well met... The book is written for health providers at all levels, from student to practitioner, from nutrition and nursing to medicine. The editors and contributors include leading authorities on various topics... Chapters are of appropriate length, with concise but balanced information provided in a reader-friendly, subtitled format. Summaries at the end of each chapter provide quick reference for topics such as hypertension and cancer risk. Unique features include timely discussions of nutrition information on the Internet and advertising effects on public health... It is a good reference for those not interested in wading through large references to find the most pertinent information." -Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal "This volume in the Nutrition and Health series focuses on the potential role of diet in achieving maximum health throughout the life span...It is timely, authoritative, and clearly written, with appropriate referencing and index. It will be particularly useful for university-level courses on nutrition and health." - Food and Nutrition Bulletin "...this book is a useful addition to the biomedical and health literature." -Pathways: The Novartis Journal "Nutrional Health: Strategies for Disease Prevention fills a unique niche among books available for health professionals and is therefore recommended as a valuable reference work for physicians, nurses, dieticians, and health professional students. It can be best used as an introduction to the many topics covered in the chapters, to direct readers to other primary sources of information, and to provoke discussion concerning emerging, complex, and controversial issues in nutrition and disease prevention and management." -American Journal of Medicine From the Foreword... "...a remarkable achievement and a fascinating read...[I] recommend it to all health care professionals, researchers, and students interested in the promotion of optimal health." -David S. Ludwig, MD, PhD, Harvard Medical School

From the Back Cover

Now going into its second much-expanded edition, the highly praised Nutritional Health, Strategies for Disease Prevention has been brought fully up to date to include all the new thinking and discoveries that have the greatest capacity to improve human health and nutritional advancement. The authors provide extensive, in-depth chapters covering the most important aspects of the complex interactions between diet, its nutrient components, and their impacts on disease states, and on those health conditions that increase the risk of chronic disease. Although obesity, weight control, diabetes, and other chronic diseases associated with obesity are emphasized, the major chronic diseases are all thoroughly reviewed, including cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and Alzheimer's disease, as well as age-related diseases. There is also a wealth of updated material on novel substances, such as long-chain fatty acids, flavonoids, carotenoids, herbs, vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, amino acids, and other dietary components, and on almost 100 websites to help readers identify excellent sources of information. Up to date and comprehensive, Nutritional Health: Strategies for Disease Prevention, Second Edition offers physicians, dietitians, and nutritionists a practical, data-driven, integrated resource to help evaluate the critical role of nutrition-especially in the at-risk populations-in optimizing health and preventing chronic illnesses.
