From The CriticsReviewer: Dale A. Schoeller, PhD (University of Wisconsin-Madison)
Description: This book is one of a series of CRC reviews of progress in nutrition and nutrition research. This volume contains nine reviews on diet monitoring, changing dietary behavior, calcium and osteoporosis, diet and cardiovascular disease, and the role of dietary antioxidants.
Purpose: These topics have been selected for inclusion because they represent areas where there is a convergence of basic and applied research, leading to an improved understanding of the role of nutrition in the prevention of chronic disease. Because this is only one volume in a larger series, its contents are not exhaustive, but rather part of a continuing effort to cover topics of current interest or controversy.
Audience: This series is designed for nutrition investigators and practitioners. It is also intended to be of interest to educated lay readers. This volume continues to serve that audience.
Features: The reviews are current and well referenced and thus provide avenues to additional reading. The reviews contain a limited number of figures and tables, but are generally qualitative rather than quantitative.
Assessment: This volume continues the series and provides up-to-date reviews of a modest number of topics of current interest in nutrition. The authors are experts in their field and the reviews informative for readers of a range of prior knowledge.
