The contributors explore recent findings on disease patterns, health maintenance, and dietary approaches to reducing the risk of chronic disease. Internationally known experts provide valuable new information on the influence of diet on heart disease, cancer, hypertension, kidney disease, diabetes, obesity, and osteoporosis. As well, they examine recent developments in nutrition research in Britain and other European countries and discuss priorities for nutrition research in Canada as set forth in a report recently released by the Ministry of Health. Current Perspectives on Nutrition and Health will be a valuable resource for health care professionals, food producers, governments, and the general public.
