From the Back Cover:

As consumers become better educated about how lifestyle affects their health, they are more demanding: they expect current information that supports the link among nutrition, health promotion, and disease prevention and treatment. This book, prepared by medical and nutrition experts at the Mayo Clinic, the University of California Los Angeles, and Dole Food Company, Inc., provides the medical information, scientific evidence, and nutritional data to meet these increasing demands.

The Encyclopedia of Foods: A Guide to Healthy Nutrition is a definitive resource on what to eat for health. Part I presents the scientific basis for the links between food and health. Statistics show that the foods we eat play a major role in the prevention and treatment of coronary artery disease, cancer, stroke, and diabetes-four leading causes of death in the United States. Also discussed is the role of nutrition in other common medical conditions: obesity, high blood pressure, and osteoporosis. Practical guidelines for planning and preparing healthful and delicious meals are given.

Part II is an encyclopedia of foods, organized into the commonly recognized USDA Food Guide Pyramid food groups: fruits, vegetables, grains, dairy foods, meats and high-protein foods, and other foods such as fats, oils, sweets, and alcohol. More than 140 individual fruits and vegetables are described to encourage consumption for their health benefits. Health implications of the other food groups are also described in addition to nutrient contents, history, and recommended uses.

Beautifully illustrated with many photographs, the Encyclopedia of Foods: A Guide to Healthy Nutrition is an invaluable resource for linking food and health.
