Product Description

From Amazon

The more researchers understand about the link between nutritious eating and robust good health, the more impressed they are by the disease-fighting powers packed into the foods we eat. Tapping into society's move toward self-care and increased responsibility for our own health, Leslie Beck's Nutrition Encyclopedia is a timely and informative resource. Beck, a registered dietician, isn't interested in fads or gimmicks; she presents sound, credible, up-to-date information on the more than 45 nutrients our bodies need to stay healthy. "You probably never thought that your afternoon cup of orange pekoe was a source of healthy antioxidants," writes Beck. "Tea, as a plant food, contains natural chemicals that act as antioxidants. The antioxidants in tea leaves belong to a special class of compounds called catechins. By mopping up harmful free radical molecules in the body, catechins in tea may protect your blood cholesterol and your cells' genetic material from damage." Beck also surveys the latest research on 75 medical conditions--from the common cold to coronary heart disease--and outlines causes, conventional treatments, and dietary strategies for managing them. The Nutrition Encyclopedia offers valuable advice on making the most of the foods we eat. --Carolyn Leitch --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
