About this book

The role of antioxidants and other nutritional agents in disease prevention is a widely discussed subject, attracting attention from professionals in all areas of medicine, from cancer to general health maintenance. This often-debated and rapidly evolving area of medicine could have important implications for how diseases are treated. This single-volume reference contains balanced coverage of possible effects of nutritional agents in major disease areas, including cancer, heart disease, immune dysfunction, and eye disease. It includes such nutrients as beta-carotene, vitamin E, vitamin C, and selenium. Clinicians, nutritionists, researchers, and students will find the information in "Antioxidants and Disease Prevention" not just interesting, but also directly applicable to their work. This is a valuable reference on an important subject that practicing physicians and health professionals will want on their bookshelves.
