The present textbook meets a critical need as an illustrated, authoritative reference in the area of clinical nutrition. Nutrition has been cited often by outstanding medical authorities as the most important environmental factor in human health. There can be no doubt that it is also one of the most basic, complex and rapidly moving areas of medical research. Hence, an up-to-date reference work, prepared by contemporary research authorities and including an excellent selection of color photographs to illustrate both moderate and severe deficiencies, makes a noteworthy contribution.
The authors (36 in number) have written from a background of extensive research and clinical experience combined with a broad outlook in terms of preventive medicine. The book is organized in three main sections dealing, respectively, with (a) diagnosis of nutritional deficiency (179 pages), (b) the availability and functional role of individual nutrients (441 pages) and (c) therapeutic and preventive practices (299 pages).
