Nutrition in the Prevention and Treatment of Disease has been proving itself in the classroom for nearly 10 years and is praised as being accessible, applicable and a valuable textbook. It focuses specifically on the relationship between disease and nutrition, an area of ever increasing interest and concern as health care costs and availability continue to be an issue worldwide. Now reaching beyond just the individual healthcare concern, the potential for nutritional interventions to improve health status is also of heightened interest to public health professionals who are faced with an aging, obese, at-risk-of-diabetes population who may or may not have access to insurance. This textbook is the foundation of understanding how nutrition can be used to improve health status.

"While this book would be best used by dietitians, it can be a good resource for all healthcare professionals working with patients. In the past five years, new research has emerged regarding nutrition and its role in disease management as well as prevention, so this update is needed."--Doody.com, June 14, 2013 Praise for the Third Edition: "Health care researchers and practitioners in the US and Canada compile the current knowledge in clinical nutrition, and summarize the rationale and science base of its applications in preventing and treating disease."--Reference and Research Book News, February 2013 "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 "A critically important work that will have a major impact on research and clinical care in this important field. The authors are an outstanding group of internationally recognized scientists in their areas of expertise. This invaluable resource provides an up-to-date, exhaustive overview of the role of nutrition in the prevention and management of disease. Highly recommended."--John P. Foreyt, Ph.D., Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX, USA Praise for Previous Editions: "With Nutrition in the Prevention and Treatment of Disease, instructors have access to one comprehensive text to demonstrate the nutrition link to disease. ...it is a text a nutrition professional can feel confident in recommending to their clinical and community nutrition colleagues, as well as to dietetics students, epidemiologists and medical students."--JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN DIETETIC ASSOCIATION "It is strong on strategies for dietary modification and on cultural and socioeconomic influences on eating and exercise behavior. Unlike earlier textbooks, it has large sections on the genetic influences on nutritional health. ...is a useful additional resource for nutritional investigators and for dietitians involved in research."--THE NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE "Written by nutrition researchers and dieticians with extensive clinical experience, this book is a useful addition to the clinical nutritionist's bookshelf."--AMERICAN JOURNAL OF CLINICAL NUTRITION "...an excellent and timely addition to the field of clinical nutrition. ...A valuable resource, not only for nutrition students, but also for practicing nutrition professionals."--CHOICE "...provides an excellent overview of clinical nutrition, integrating the collective role of diet, genetics, environment, and behavior in healt and disease. ...All in all, this text is a comprehensive contribution to the field of clinical nutrition and provides an excellent reference for practitioners, researchers, and advanced nutrition students."--INFORMAbout the Author:
