An international panel of physicians, pediatricians, immunologists, and public health nutritionists concisely review for front-line health care providers and researchers the practical aspects related to evaluating nutrition and immunology in the field.
Here, the busy physician and investigator will quickly find a clear and up-to-date understanding of the essential immunological facts in adult and child nutrition. Citing the latest research findings, the authors explain the role of nutrition in the case of current health issues, such as HIV, malaria, food allergies, diarrhea, acute respiratory infections, and the impact of macro- and micronutrient deficiencies, dietary fat, and antioxidants on immune status.
