Nutrition in the Prevention and Treatment of Disease, Third Edition is a comprehensive clinical nutrition textbook that integrates food issues with nutrition to provide a unique perspective to disease prevention/control. 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.

This new edition contains chapters that have been completed updated and features 26 new authors or co-authors. Topics include: 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; and Dietary Bioactive Compounds for Health. There are also discussions on bioactive components present in edible plants of particular interest for the prevention of disease; management of patients who have undergone surgical treatment for obesity; and greatly expanded coverage of biomarkers used to monitor nutrition interventions. 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.
