This is a well established textbook. Starting with a brief survey of the physiology of digestion and internal metabolism, it proceeds with a scholarly presentation of the knowledge of the various foodstuffs. Diseases or groups of diseases in which dietary considerations are important are then discussed. These discussions are introduced by comments on various basic aspects of the conditions. The dietary considerations appropriate to these conditions are then thoroughly presented. The material is well up-to-date and is well selected and evaluated. Where controversies exist, both sides are presented.
The text is abundantly documented by references to the original literature. Diet
