Can food really take the place of medicine? While modern medicine certainly has its place and does more than its fair share of good, there is no denying that many of society’s most perilous chronic diseases are exacerbated by poor diets. Whereas infectious diseases used to cause the most number of deaths, the impact of chronic diseases now far overshadows that of infectious diseases. Diet plays a significant role in the development of a number of types of chronic disease, such as heart disease, diabetes, and certain types of cancer.

[This book] deserves attention as it provides a cohesive and summative reflection of her life’s work in advocating for children’s rights. [It] is a comprehensive and valuable contribution to the international literature on children’s rights. Its most useful attribute is the demonstration of how the ideas of children’s rights can be implemented in contexts as varied as families, educational settings, within health and the workplace. -- Bronwyn E. Wood, New Zealand Association for Research in Education 2016, Springer.
