The importance of nutrition in the prevention and treatment of disease and the maintenance of good health is being increasingly recognised. Nutrition is an area that all health professionals need to be aware of and yet one in which few are specifically trained. However it is now becoming a valued topic in many curricula. The Oxford Handbook of Nutrition and Dietetics makes this information more accessible to dieticians, doctors, nurses, nutritionists, and other healthcare professionals by providing a practical, easily accessible, concise and up-to-date evidence-based guide in a user-friendly portable handbook. It covers the entire life cycle from preconception to old age. As the general public is increasingly aware of the food they eat and the role nutrition plays in health and disease, health professionalsmust have the kind of knowledge in this book at their fingertips.

Gabriela Visan a dat nota:

Un ghid practic, concis, complex pentru nutritie si dietetica. Dintr-o coperta in alta parcurgi de la elemente introductive si componente alimentare ( inclusiv aditivi alimentari ) pana la metode de evaluare, ghiduri practice, instrumente de sreening. Deasemenea cartea acopera atat aria alimentatiei omului sanatos in diferite perioade de viata (copii,adolescenti, gravide, batrani) cat si cea a persoanelor cu diferite patologii. De la alergie, obezitate, diabet, afectiuni gastrointestinale pana la boli neurologice, imunologice genetice sau cancer, cartea ofera recomandari alimentare si diete dar atentioneaza si asupra interactiunilor terapiilor aplicabile. Fiecare capitol este insotit de referinte stiintifice ceea ce face ca acest ghid de nutritie si dietetica sa fie esential atat pentru un specialist in nutritie cat si pentru orice persoana preocupata de sanatatea prin alimentatie.

Review from previous edition "This book fills an important gap...ideal for the busy practitioner or scholar of other disciplines who is eager to learn more about nutrition but hasn't the time to do a lot of reading. Quick, concise and accurate information...highly commended."
"...worthy of a place in the clinician's library of practical information. It enunciates the principles and contemporary science on which clinical (and, in large measure, public health) nutrition should be based on."
