Overview

This book provides a review of the roles of specific nutrients in maintaining the immune response and host protection against infection. It also considers the influence of various factors, such as exercise and ageing, on the interaction between nutrition and immune function. The main emphasis is on humans, but comparative mammalian data are also presented.

The contents include methods for studying nutrient-immune function interactions, the impact of undernutrition on immune function and infection, the influences of fatty acids, amino acids, antioxidant vitamins, and various minerals on immunity, immunological effects of changes throughout the life cycle, and public health policy implications.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"It will be an essential resource for any scientist interested in knowing how what people eat affects their immune function and susceptibility to infection. I certainly enjoyed reading it and am better informed for having done so."

"This book should provide an easy way for graduate students, as well as the rest of us, to update ourselves on recent advances in nutritional immunology."
