IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease) is an umbrella term for serious disorders of the large intestine, including Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Nutrition is important in managing these chronic diseases, and nutritional biologist Scala's recommendations seem sensible. Unfortunately, the title-- Eating Right for a Bad Gut--and promotional material for this book confuse IBD with the less serious and more common condition called IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), which Scala does not address at all. Such imprecise wording might lead to extreme anxiety in the unwary reader looking for information on indigestion.-- Evelyn L. Mott, Palm Beach Cty. Lib., West Palm Beach, Fla.
