Nutrition has been a key determinant of these gains in health and it now takes on a special importance for the well-being of elderly people who are surviving in greater and greater numbers. This authoritative report provides information on all aspects of nutrition in the elderly. It is sponsored by the World Health Organization and will be useful to physicians, nutritionists, medical students, and those involved in a variety of other health sciences. Nutrition in the Elderly by A. Horwitz, D. M. MacFadyen, H. Munro, N. S. Scrimshaw, Bertil Steen, T. F. Williams.

Nutrition in the elderly. Published on behalf of the World Health Organization by Oxford University Press, Oxford, New York, and Tokyo, 1989. This is intended to be an authoritative guide on nutrition in aging for use in the training of physicians and other health scientists around the world. It can be useful for this purpose, although it is written at a relatively advanced level replete with references, and most of the information is also applicable to other age groups.

From the mid-1970s to the mid-1980s, rates of life expectancy at birth increased throughout the world. In developed countries long life is almost a certainty, and very long life increasingly probable. Nutrition has been a key determinant of these gains in health and it now takes on a special importance for the well-being of elderly people who are surviving in greater and greater numbers. This authoritative report provides information on all aspects of nutrition in the elderly. It is sponsored by the World Health Organization and will be useful to physicians, nutritionists, medical students, and those involved in a variety of other health sciences.
