Nowadays, with the myriad information regarding nutrition from different cultures and different parts of the world, guidance for the common man is important. This book will be about the more logical and better substantiated nutritional practices and juried literature around the world, and its impact on health and disease. The monograph will be appropriate for use in a nutritional or an epidemiology course. This book was designed as one of the textbooks for a whole course, and it can be employed to create modules in existing courses, or as a supplementary text in nutrition associated with epidemiology. It is meant for a wide readership. This is not just a book for epidemiology students, but also for the ordinary adult who want to participate fully in the betterment of their own nutritional choices, and consequently their health and disease statuses. The topic has universal appeal. Several topics provide an understandable discussion of many of the more detailed and complex treatments presented in selected archival medical journal papers. All topics are accompanied by a wise perspective and interpretation of the already published information, when warranted.
