A special chapter on the environment and nutrition raises awareness and offers guidance about food additives, industrial chemicals, food irradiation, electropollution, and other health and ecological issues.PART THREE brings all of this nutritional information together, showing readers how to make wise and commonsense choices while Building a Healthy Diet. A personalized eating plan for the year, The Ideal Diet is both seasonally and naturally based, and a healthy lifelong diet.PART FOUR contains specific nutritional and lifestyle therapies for enhancing all stages of life and suggests treatments for common conditions and diseases such as aging, menopause, bone loss, weight loss, and cancer by focusing on Nutritional Applications: 32 Special Diet and Supplement Programs.Anyone interested in enhancing wellness, eating right, treating illness naturally, and living in harmony with nature will find Staying Healthy with Nutrition to be the ultimate handbook for optimal health and vitality.“For more than thirty years my colleague Dr. Elson Haas has contributed to the field of nutritional education to the benefit of both the public and health practitioners.

Product Description

From Library Journal

Designed as an introductory textbook to teach the basic principles of nutrition and their applications, this hefty volume brings together a wealth of information for the serious reader. Part 1 analyzes the building blocks of nutrition; Part 2 evaluates foods and diets; Part 3 discusses building a healthy diet; and Part 4 explains nutritional applications. But this book also examines topics not usually found in textbooks--herbal supplements, homeopathic medicines, environmental aspects of nutrition, and detoxification and healing programs, to name just a few. Although this exhaustive study is accurate and up to date, it's formidable length (over 1000 pages!) will greatly limit its appeal. Most readers concerned about healthy eating will prefer Jane Brody's Nutrition Book ( LJ 5/1/81) and/or Jean Carper's Total Nutrition Guide ( LJ 3/15/87).

5.0 out of 5 stars Should be everyone's nutrition bible. Nov. 27 2000
Dr Haas has written an exhausting, thorough and informative "bible" about everything from what carbs, proteins and fats are and how they work to every vitamin, mineral and supplement you can imagine to special diets for different stages of your life or special needs to just covers everything. I especially have to rave about a Western doctor who recognizes the validity of things like food combining and Candidiasis.
This book is over 1,100 pages and it's just jam packed with more information than you will think you need, but then you'll be surprised to find how many sections you'll flip to for info that pertains to you and your family.
I have a huge library of nutrition books and references that are really useful and well-written, but I'd toss them all just to have this one. If you are hesitant about the price or the size of the book, don't be. You will find it to be incredibly useful, easy to understand and beneficial when applied to your own daily life. I know I did.
This is far and away THE best nutrition book out there, I can't see how anyone could top this, unless he releases it with more information one day (and I can't see how there could be more.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and Helpful! June 19 2000
Dr. Haas has put together one of the most complete nutrition books that can be enjoyed by the average reader. From what I have read, he makes no outrageous claims, though he does believe nutrition can offer health benefits (which would distinguish this book from a standard nutrition textbook). While the price may seem a little steep, there are 1140 pages that contain a wealth of information. The first 353 pages list virtually every popular nutrient (vitamins, minerals, fats, etc) and food category (such as beans, citrus fruits, etc). He even gives relevant information on the pseudo-vitamins such as Pangamic Acid (B15), amygdalin (B17), and Vitamin U. He also lists many of the popular diets and their benefits and drawbacks.
He also includes a very helpful section on "the Environmental Aspects of Nutrition." Possible pollutants and common food additives are discussed. He lists "88 Survival Suggestions."
Over 100 pages are dedicated to a Seasonal Cookbook. The foods are healthy, but possibly difficult for the average reader to obtain. It is possible with a little work however. There is a section on "Nutritional Application," which has special diets and suggestions for people with cancer, heart disease, yeast syndrome, and other disorders. He also includes suggestions for executives, adults, children, alcoholics, and adolescents. Overall the Nutritional Application section is very complete.
Finally he includes around 80 pages of health questionnaires that test health knowledge and actually intend to estimate one's health level. I use this whenever I have general or specific health questions. I recommend it highly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to Read April 1 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Purchased this text for school and have found it very well written, anyone could pick up this text and begin reading it. I do wish (as with most books) that when you purchase a paper copy that you would also get the e-book copy, $30 for the paperback and $65 for the e-book doesn't make much sense.

Best price for paperback is on amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive comprehensive nutrition reference July 7 1999
By A Customer
For those looking for the omnibus, cover-all reference book on nutrition, this is it. It is a thoroughly comprehensive examination of nutrition from just about every possible facet. Dr. Haas incorporates most of the more modern and alternative thinking on nutrition, even going so far as to examine environmental and spiritual issues, while avoiding the extreme, faddish ideas either of the medical establishment or the alternative fringe. He really does seem to have taken the time to weigh the value of studies done in both the mainstream and alternative research communities and brought together the clear, probable truths from both camps. And by the same token, he provides warnings against the doubtful claims of both sides.
This is not a book, however, for those looking for a quick, capsule synopsis of a dietary approach. Those people might be better served with Patrick Holford's "Optimum Nutrition Bible" which provides much of the same information in a condensed form. Rather this book is ideal for those looking to make an informed decision based on their own choices.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent reference book. Feb. 18 1999
By A Customer
This book is absolutely one of the best nutrition books I have ever read. It is thorough and offers a great deal of information on vitamins, minerals, herbs, proper nutrition, various detox diets, why and what type of water should be consumed and much more. A must for anyone who wishes to study holistic nutrition.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very large, very informative, and no overly-complex wording. This book has a bit of a hippie tone to it, but comes off as mostly open-minded and pleasant. The writer doesn't condone any particular eating style, but does have recommendations and always lets the reader know his method. Full sections were dedicated to individual nutrient plans and the effects of specific vitamins and minerals. Mr Haas comes of a bit unrealistic with some of his suggestions for supplementation and lifestyle, but he obviously means well. There were some chunks of the writing I had to question ("noodletarians"?) but overall it was a good read for someone very into how the environment a person lives in affects them. Absolutely recommended.
