From the Back Cover:

Praise for the First Edition:

I highly recommend this monograph for physicians, dietitians, and other health practitioners as well as the health-aware public. It captures what you need to know in a succinct but comprehensive fashion. --American Journal of Lifestyle Medicine

Students in graduate programs in nutrition, food science, pharmacy, and allied health fields will also find the abundance of rigorous, scientifically accurate information essential in their studies.
