About this Book

Continuing accumulation of scientific evidence demonstrates that nutrition is one of the most important determinants of health for the individual, and that specific nutrition habits of various populations can significantly decrease the overall risk of several chronic diseases.

This landmark publication, which contains papers presented at the 1st Nutrition and Health conference, covers the major topics relating to nutritional aspects of health. Chapters within this important book cover vital health issues, including details of the links between diet and cardiovascular disease, obesity, cancer, diabetes and osteoporosis. Further chapters within Nutrition and Health cover important nutritional issues, for example managing the human gut flora, vegetarianism and the role of phytoprotectants.

Each chapter has been written by a well-known expert, and the whole has been drawn together and carefully edited, providing an important reference resource for the future. All health professionals interested or involved in nutrition and the impact of nutrition on health should have a copy of this book on their shelves, as should libraries in all medical schools, and universities and research establishments where nutrition, dietetics and food science are studied and taught.
