ABC oF Nutrition


When the first edition of this ABC was written in 1985 there was no “evidence-based medicine”, no human genome, no BSE or nvCJD, no epidemic of obesity and associated type II diabetes; there were no statins to lower plasma cholesterol and no genetically modified foods.
Helicobacter pylori had just been discovered. The role of folate in neural tube defects had not been established, or raised plasma homocysteine as a risk factor for heart disease.
The Barker hypothesis had not been propounded. These recent discoveries and ideas affect nutritional practice and they appear or influence what is in this new edition.Fourth Edition 2003
