Cutting-edge review articles by leading international physicians and researchers illuminate the role of diet, dietary factors, and nutrients in optimizing health and reducing the risk of specific disease conditions in both healthy individuals and those with pre-existing conditions. These experts present balanced reviews of the latest research on the role of nutrition in preventing and slowing the progression of cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, renal disease, obesity, osteoporosis, osteoarthtitis, and autoimmune disease. They also provide new insights of great value to the consumer on the effects of soy, fiber, and retinoids, as well as on the contrasting effects of trans- vs long chain fatty acids. Each chapter concludes with the authors' reader-friendly assessment of the current state of the science, as well as clear recommendations based on the totality of clinical evidence. Up-to-date and authoritative, Primary and Secondary Preventive Nutrition constitutes the single most comprehensive resource for health professionals seeking to improve individual health outcomes through nutrition. It provides balanced, well documented answers to the most frequently asked questions concerning preventive nutrition and a sound basis for discussing the public health implications of preventive nutrition strategies and their effects on health care costs.
