A proven classroom resource for understanding how nutrition can be used to improve health status, this book focuses on the clinical applications and disease prevention of nutrition, clearly linking the contributions of basic science to applied nutrition research and, in turn, to research-based patient care guidelines. The diversity of material makes this text useful for nutritional scientists and also for upper division nutrition course work.

Updated appendices include the latest dietary reference intakes.

This book is aimed at upper division undergraduates and graduate students in nutrition and dietetics; professional nutritionists; dieticians; epidemiologists; general practitioners; nurse practitioners; and family medicine physicians.

From the Back Cover:

"I think this book is remarkably useful to people like me; a practicing physician. There is a pleasant uniformity to the prose suggesting that the editors have done a great job in homogenizing, as it were, the style. The chapters I read were really informative--I particularly liked chapter 3, which had a wealth of information about the physical manifestations of malnutrition. I was completely unaware of most of them and found this very useful; in fact, it will add a great deal to how well I can assess the nutritional status of my patients and how to help them remedy deficiencies in their diet. This book should be a great success!"

--Mariane Legato, MD, FACP, Professor Emerita of Clinical Medicine, Columbia University College of Medicine, New York, NY; Adjunct Professor of Medicine, Johns Hopkins, Department of Medicine, Baltimore, MD, USA

"In this third edition, the editors continue to identify key experts in nutrition science who discuss in depth a broad spectrum of topics from basic concepts of nutrient requirements to a translational research model calling for interdisciplinary approaches linking discoveries at the molecular level to individual and public health. This book is a wonderful resource!"

-- Mary Jo Feeney, MS, RD, FADA, Consultant to Food and Agricultural Industries, Los Altos, CA, USA
