Adrianne Bendich, Richard J. Deckelbaum
Humana Press, 1997 - Medical - 579 pages
In Preventive Nutrition leading medical authorities and clinicians comprehensively review and critically assess the newest nutritional approaches to preventing or delaying disease processes. Along the way these distinguished scientists develop specific nutrient recommendations and illuminate not only the relationship between diet on the one hand and cancer, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes on the other, but also the dietary prevention of cataracts, osteoporosis, and immune dysfunction. In addition they examine the exciting current research linking nutritional status with the prevention of birth defects, as well as with the optimization of the health and intellectual capacity of children. Their pathbreaking reviews clearly spell out the public health implications of preventive nutrition strategies for the United States and Europe, as well as emerging nations and developing countries worlwide.
