From the Back Cover:




The term "nutrition transition" is used to define the rapid global changes occurring in food production, distribution and intake, those occurring in physical activity and sedentarianism, and their effects on diet-related disease. The Nutrition Transition: Diet and Disease in the Developing World provides the first summary of the current state of knowledge on the factors driving the nutrition transition within the developing world.

The Editors have assembled a leading international group of scientists in the fields of economics, population sciences, international health, medicine, public health, nutrition, and food sciences, to present and discuss up-to-date information on population trends, changes in food production and epidemiology of diet-related chronic diseases in the developing world.

The Nutrition Transition outlines key issues that need to be addressed in order to confront what is predicted to be the leading cause of death and disability in the world over the next 30 years - nutrition-related chronic diseases in developing countries. It provides essential information to understand the far-reaching effects that global economic, social and cultural trends are having on diet-related disease patterns in countries in transition.

The Nutrition Transition is an essential read for academics and professionals in all areas of international nutrition, food science and public health.
