This exhaustive work begins with detailed discussions of the “building blocks” of nutrition (water, carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, vitamins, minerals, accessory nutrients). Haas covers the sources, functions, and dietary utility of each substance in these categories. The discussion of foods, diets, and the environment describes the type of food and nutritional content; types and regionality of various diets; and chemical additive and pollutant factors in nutrition. A third section discusses the components of a healthy diet, including individual needs and seasonal menus. The final section covers approaches to various stages of life, performance enhancement, medical treatment, and detox and healing. Purposefully written for the consumer rather than the researcher, this book provides a valuable reference base for anyone interested in preventive medicine and personal healing.
