A benchmark survey of current clinical findings on the complex interactions between diet, stress, and mental health, and their impact on disease states. The authors give special attention to the influence of stress on physical health, mental health, and cognitive function, including the critical effects of maternal nutritional status and stress levels on fetal physical and mental development, the role of lipids in the development and treatment of depression, the role of fish oil in the development of aggressive behaviors, and the consequences of obesity on stress and the development of eating disorders. Additional chapters examine the effects of stress on chronic disorders, women, and cardiac function, and the influence of inflammation on diet, neurological functions, disease incidence, and cognitive functions.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"S. Yehuda and D. Mostofsky have gathered in this volume . a total of 25 chapters divided in 4 parts, each chapter presenting a particular aspect of the relationships between 2 of the 3 terms contained in the title, i.e. nutrients and stress, nutrients and medical disorders, and stress and medical disorders. . provides a wealth of information on the various links between nutrition, stress and brain function. It should therefore be very useful for the scientific and medical community interested in nutritional neurosciences." (Sylvie Chalon, Psychoneuroendocrinology, June, 2006)
