More About This Textbook


Pulling together current knowledge on nutrition's role in the treatment of heart disease, Nutrition and Heart Disease: Prevention and Treatment is a comprehensive desk reference for nutrition and cardiovascular researchers, primary care physicians, and dieticians. It discusses the roles of nutrition and diet in the prevention of heart damage and dysfunction and how dietary agents such as fats and alcohol can increase as well as reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. The book also includes the importance of water and other beverages in the diet, and provides information on special diets that have been known to affect cardiac health both positively and negatively.
