"One of the best health reference books". -- Library Journal-- Combines nutrition basics with the most up-to-date research for both healthcare professionals and the general public

The Nutrition Desk Reference is a vital resource for the many people discovering that managing their health is both more effective and more affordable than relying on the medical industry to cure avoidable illnesses. Now in a more affordable paperback edition, this is the only book of its kind to offer nutrition basics and current research that is applicable both for healthcare professionals and laypersons. It provides all the tools individuals need to apply nutrition guidelines toward preventing illness and maintaining their own health.

Free of in-depth biochemical explanations -- yet not oversimplified and vague like many introductory nutrition books -- this unparalleled reference provides an introduction to the fundamentals of nutrition by relating them specifically to the two biggest modern-day killers: cancer and cardiovascular disease. Primary risk factors and preventive measures are outlined for these and 26 other conditions, including everything from AIDS to emotional disorders, Alzheimer's to PMS.

This fully referenced, one-volume library reviews, in simple terms, recent findings such as antioxidants and their major role in disease prevention, and a remarkable new category of nutrients, the phytochemicals.

Spouts the same garbage low-fat agenda. The body 'prefers' carbohydrates as an energy source. NOT true. Please explain how cavemen survived if this was the case. This has long been debunked. Mentions the typical RDAs of vitamins and minerals, most of which are unsubstantiated and arbitrary. Mentions toxicity symptoms of vitamins you can't overdose on unless you get your blood pumped full of it, such as vitamin A. They depict lowering HDL cholesterol as a good thing. Everything is outdated. This book is 20 years old. Don't buy it.

this book disapointed me as a therapist because the knoledge in this book is interpreted to the recommandation of around the r.d.a wich is an old sad joke. there are however a certain thing in the term of knoledge that are basically fine, but in the overall recommandation is alternativly concervative=not practical in dealing with serious diseases

Even though the title suggests that this book is a "reference", I found the chapters on macro and micronutrients to be a comprehensive starting point for learning more about nutrition. Easy to follow with many references to clinical studies, this book offers a lot for the lay person trying to decipher the recent flood of health advice regarding diet. Special chapters on how specific diseases relate to diet might have been more extensive, but otherwise the book was excellent.

Just got my copy and although it is a reference book reading it stright through couldn't hurt. I wish some of the many Dr's I have gone to, looking for cures or answers, would have given me the education this book has in it to help heal or prevent the damage done by disease and perscription drugs. It is a shame on the medical system that we are forced to search & study and find our own healing while, at the same time, paying unbelievable costs to Dr's who only strive to treat the symptoms. The word "cure" is seldom heard in the hallowed halls of medicine.

This book is concise, well written, and addresses many nutritional issues with a seemingly unbiased and scientific perspective. Another book that is really good is Total Nutrition.
