The Encyclopedia of Nutrition and Good Health is a basic sourcebook meant to serve as a one-stop introduction to the world of nutrition. The aim is to demystify scientific concepts without sacrificing accuracy, so that the reader can grasp the essential ideas quickly and easily. This encyclopedia is objective, it does not advocate particular vitamin or diet plan. It does not promote "cure-alls", indeed, no single food or supplement can guarantee health or prevent disease. It is up-to-date and comprehensive, providing current information no specific foods and nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. Many herbs and plant products that are now being widely used have been described, how they work in the body and how they impact health. It is more than a supplement guide. There is a discussion on many food-related conditions, including eating disorders, obesity, addiction, weight loss and management, food sensitivities, diabetes, aging, cancer.
