With the Internet and the call for transparency, many have called the current age as ‘too much information.’ In this environment, guidance for the common man is important with respect to health and disease. This book will be about the crucial and sometimes confusing role of nutrition in human health and disease. This book will be suitable for a nutritional or an epidemiology course. The monograph was authored as one of the textbooks for a whole course, and it can be used to create modules in existing courses, or as a supplementary text in nutrition linked with epidemiology. The readership population is general. This is not just a book for epidemiology students, but also for the common man or woman who wants to participate in the improvement of his/her nutritional selections, and thus their health conditions. Diseases are kept away by good recommended practices, and nutrition can help in several disease categories. The holistic approach to human health holds a position of worldwide significance. All topics are accompanied by a prudent outlook and clarification of the previously published information, when necessary.
