Since the widely acclaimed first edition of Preventive Nutrition: The Comprehensive Guide for Health Professionals was published in 1997, many new studies have significantly extended our understanding of the health effects of nutrition. In this richly enhanced second edition, leading nutritionists, public health experts, and clinicians update and extend this now classic guide to improving individual health outcomes through appropriate nutrition. The new edition encompasses the broadest range of topics, from cancer and cardiovascular disease to infectious disease in children, from reproductive and prenatal nutrition to global public health nutrition strategies. Each chapter provides an overview of the field, a discussion of the author's own research and its implications, and recommendations for various patient groups based on the totality of evidence rather than on the findings of any single study. Authoritative and readily accessible, Preventive Nutrition: The Comprehensive Guide for Health Professionals, 2nd Edn., is the most comprehensive and up-to-date textbook in the field. It provides practicing health professionals with a critical synthesis of all the newest research, demonstrating that the risk of many of the major diseases affecting middle-aged adults can be prevented, or at least delayed, with simple nutritional approaches
