Nutrition and Disease Prevention


A new book has been just published in the "Nutrition and Disease Prevention" book series:

Geriatric Nutrition (Nutrition and Disease Prevention)
by John E. Morley and David R. Thomas

Book Description
Drawing from a group of outstanding experts in the field, Geriatric Nutrition ties basic research with clinical practice in a state-of-the-art review of current nutritional thinking. Beginning with an overview on nutrition in older persons, the book addresses nutritional requirements, techniques for the clinical assessment of nutrition in older adults, and the management of undernutrition in nursing homes and assisted living environments. A significant portion of the book covers nutrition recommendations in specific disease states, such as psychological issues, obesity, diabetes, cancer, anemia, and fracture risk. The book also considers multicultural and ethical issues relevant to the sensitive treatment of older individuals.

Key words:
New books, Nutrition, Disease Prevention, Geriatric Nutrition, John E. Morley, David R. Thomas, Health, fitness, health-care for seniors, life-extension, aging, ageing, longevity, gerontology, gerontological, geriatrics, geriatric, senescence, obesity, diabetes, cancer, anemia, fracture risk

Kind regards,
