Food and Nutrients in Disease Management

JAMA. 2009;302(23):2602-2603. doi:10.1001/jama.2009.1778

Food and Nutrients in Disease Management is intended to “help physicians reunite food and medicine in clinical practice.” Food and nutrients should be used in the prevention and treatment of a wide and diverse range of diseases. Editor Ingrid Kohlstadt is the founder of an organization that provides medical nutrition information. She also is a commissioner's fellow with the US Food and Drug Administration and works toward improving communications on food and drug interactions. She strongly believes that nutrition is useful in preventing and treating disease. Accordingly, the book's 43 chapters were written by medical experts, nutrition experts, or both.
