Product description

Review

Ralph S. Paffenbarger, Jr., M.D., Dr.P.H., Professor of Epidemiology, Emeritus (Active), Stanford University School of MedicineTrue to the implications of its title, "Eat, Drink, and Be Healthy" provides comprehensive evidence of the links of proper nutrition to better health and extended longevity. Professor Walter C. Willett and his learned colleagues describe new scientific work on the cardiovascular benefits from n-3 fatty acids found in nuts and some oils; on the cancer-fighting substance lycopene, found in tomatoes; on the potential hazards of consuming too much calcium; and on the advisability of taking a standard multivitamin daily. Well written and well reasoned, this book identifies a total diet that affects satiety, meets the body's needs for energy and nutrients, and prevents or delays some specific chronic diseases. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
