Summary

Nutrition and Disease Prevention delves into the complex relationship between nutrition and the prevention of disease. From classic deficiency diseases to problems of metabolism and nutrient absorption, and from severe malnutrition to obesity, nutritional status means the difference between health and sickness or even life and death. Today, researchers are defining the relationship between nutrients and the development of diseases in previously unsuspected ways—approaches that may lead to longer, healthier lives for all.
