Dr. Robert Ronzio has drawn from a vast well of nutritional expertise, professional experience, and deep personal conviction to research and write The Encyclopedia of Nutrition and Good Health. His 30-year career as a biochemist has closely followed the arc of discovery and innovation in the field of nutrition, including recent breakthroughs in understanding how the human body is optimally fueled and maintained. Containing over 2,500 entries written in clear, concise language, extensive cross-references, and a comprehensive index, The Encyclopedia of Nutrition and Good Health is a detailed, thoroughly researched reference work that renders the current, and often confusing, explosion of nutritional information accessible and manageable. It effectively describes food ingredients such as vitamins, minerals, fats, carbohydrates, vegetables, fruits, proteins, and herbs; foods and related health benefits; causes of degenerative diseases and conditions related to poor nutrition; processed foods, food additives, and their possible side effects; the link between certain foods, cancer, and cancer prevention; food allergies, eating disorders, aging, and more. With The Encyclopedia of Nutrition and Good Health, Dr. Ronzio has anticipated the fusion of preventive, holistic health care and traditional medicine and placed readers at the forefront of the movement toward good health through informed nutrition.

About the Author:

Robert Ronzio, Ph.D., C.N.S., F.A.I.C., was a laboratory director of Biotics Research Corp. in Houston, TX and is now retired. He received his Ph.D. in biochemistry from the University of California at Berkeley and was a postdoctoral fellow at Tufts University Medical College and the University of Washington School of Medicine. A lecturer both nationally and internationally, he is the author of numerous journal articles and papers and has received many honors and awards. Kennedy Associates maintains a seasoned team of writing and editing professionals who are specialists in health and psychology.

From Booklist:

Clear, concise, and accurate are adjectives that describe this encyclopedia, which simplifies and demystifies sustenance and the body. Some of the "inevitable" consequences of aging--arthritis, senility, diabetes, and obesity--have now been linked to inadequate diet, and this resource will allow individuals to take greater responsibility for their own health.

Ronzio, a biochemist with 30 years of experience, identifies and describes individual nutrients, major and minor foods, bodily functions, herbs and their associated health benefits, food labels and technology, food values, and food-related conditions. A number of entries contain information that can be hard to find. Eating Patterns, for example, gives the latest statistics regarding the annual consumption of chicken, milk, vegetables, and other dietary staples. Fat, hidden includes charts on the fat content of such fast-food favorites as a Burger King Whopper and a Wendy's Big Bacon Classic. Entries are arranged alphabetically and are extensively cross-referenced. Some entries are followed by up-to-date references, primarily citations to articles in medical journals.

In his introduction, Ronzio calls his book a "nutrition translator" and a "stepping-stone on your path to wellness," preparing readers for the twenty-first century. Libraries may already own a number of other similar guides, including the Nutrition Bible [RBB Ja 1 & 15 96], PDR Family Guide to Nutrition and Health [RBB Ja 1 & 15 96], and Wellness Encyclopedia of Food and Nutrition [RBB Ja 1 94]. However, information in this area changes rapidly, and librarians need to be vigilant about adding new titles and weeding out-of-date titles. This book is recommended as a current source for reference and personal libraries.
