  • "The role of nutrition has moved beyond the food pyramid and the importance of a balanced diet in maintaining a healthy weight, and is now also recognized as a significant contributing factor in addressing age and disease-specific conditions. As research advances into these areas, students approach nutrition from a wide range of perspectives that continue to change and evolve. As the MDR numbers in Market Need below indicate, the number of courses in Medicine, Nursing, Physical Education, Science and Public Health have all increased in the past 5 years. Public Health has grown most drastically as it becomes evident that nutrition has the potential to improve the health of our rapidly aging population, which will in turn affect the services they require as a result of aging in good health vs. poor health, and the role nutrition plays in combating other public health issues such as diabetes, obesity, and heart disease. This is of particular importance in the emerging scenario where medical costs are increasing in cost and services are declining in availability. Students using Nutrition in the Prevention and Treatment of Disease are seeking insights into how they can improve the health of their patients, clients and consumers as they interact with them in professional roles in medicine, nutrition and dietetics, and even in food development as new products aimed at specific health issues are of increasing interest and public demand.Integration of food issues with nutrition provides a unique perspective to disease prevention/controlMaterial in the book is up-to-date with current researchIndividual sections of the book can be used for mini-courses or in-depth studyDiversity of material makes this text useful for nutritional scientists and also for upper division nutrition course work."

  • "This comprehensive clinical nutrition textbook uniquely 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."
  • "This reference addresses basic principles and concepts that are central to the major clinical nutrition-related activities, such as nutritional assessment and monitoring, current theoretical base and knowledge of efficacious interventions, interactions between genetic and nutritional factors, and the use and interpretation of population-based or clinical epidemiological evidence."
  • "Expertly edited, the Second Edition of "Nutrition in the Prevention and Treatment of Disease" offers 4 completely new chapters and all chapters have been completely updated. Given its unique focus and extensive coverage of clinical applications and disease prevention, this edition is organized for easy integration into advanced upper-division or graduate nutrition curriculum's. Foundation chapters on nutrition research methodology and application clearly link the contributions of basic science to applied nutrition research and, in turn, to research-based patient care guidelines. Readers will learn to integrate basic principles and concepts across disciplines and areas of research and practice as well as how to apply this knowledge in new creative ways. Chapters on specific nutrients and health cover topics where data are just beginning to be identified, such as choline, antioxidants, nutrition and cognition, and eye disease. Established areas of chronic disease: obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, gastrointestinal disease, and bone health are presented each in their own sections, which aim to demonstrate the inter-action of basic science, genetics, applied nutrition research, and research-based patient care guidelines. No other nutrition book on the market takes this approach. Students will take away foundational insights into the application of nutrition research in the prevention and treatment of disease. Busy researchers and clinicians will use this book as a "refresher course" and should feel confident in making patient care recommendations based on solid current research findings. New to this edition: all chapters have been completely updated; 26 new authors and co-authors; 4 completely new chapters: Surgery for Severe Obesity; Snacking and Energy Balance in Humans; Phytochemicals in the Prevention and Treatment of Obesity and Its Related Cancers; Bioavailability and Metabolism of Bioactive Compounds from Foods; New section on Dietary Bioactive Compounds for Health explores bioactive components present in edible plants of particular interest for the prevention of disease; New to the obesity section is a chapter on the management of patients who have undergone surgical treatment for obesity; Greatly expanded coverage of biomarkers used to monitor nutrition interventions; and Updated appendices include the latest dietary reference intakes. Key Features: unique focus and extensive coverage of clinical applications and disease prevention; clearly links the contributions of basic science to applied nutrition research and, in turn, to research-based patient care guidelines; and assimilates a large body of research and applications and serves as a "refresher course" for busy researchers and clinicians."
  • "As we enter the 21st century, a new era of nutrition in the prevention and treatment of disease emerges.
