Rezensionen
From the reviews of the second edition:"Like the first edition, the second edition of Nutrition and Health in Developing Countries- a tome to which no less than 45 leading minds in a diverse range of disciplines have contributed - is set to define a new level of understanding in this important area of policy, research and programming. Intended for policy makers, nutritionists, students, scientists and professionals, the book provides the most recent and up-to-date knowledge regarding major health and nutritional problems in developing countries, presented to facilitate an integrated approach to health research, programs, and policy. New chapters in the book's final section contain special topics relating to humanitarian emergencies, including a case study of the Indian Ocean tsunami in 2004, food in humanitarian relief, food policy, the emerging role of supermarkets in developing countries, homestead food production, aging, ethics, and the adverse impact of parental tobacco use on child health in poor families. As readers of the previous edition know, what is characteristic of the volume is its underlying conviction that global health and nutrition problems can only be solved through a more integrated, multidisciplinary approach to better understand the various levels of causality and interactions between determinants. The book powers on with insightful contributions from academics and professionals steeped in the fields of clinical nutrition, medicine, immunology, infectious disease, epidemiology, public health nutrition, anthropology, health policy, economics, and disaster planning." (Sight and Life)"This second edition is updated and enlarged with 12 more chapters than the 2001 edition (32 total). Each chapter is a critical literature review considering current research, conclusions, and needed research. Conflicting results of studies are included. Chapters cover both specific diseases such as measles, malaria, and tuberculosis; and dietary deficiencies such as vitamin A or zinc. Contributors also address more problem-specific areas such as infant mortality, food policy, and ethics. The chapter on the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami provides a study in what is needed, and not needed, in response to disasters. Chapter authors are an international selection of people working in the field of nutrition and health. Chapter citation listings (several numbering over 200 citations) demonstrate the extent of coverage for each subject. Although each chapter can stand alone, those who read the whole volume will get a very comprehensive overview of nutrition-related health problems in developing countries. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-level undergraduates through professionals/practitioners." (N. Duran, Texas A&M University in CHOICE, January 2009)"This is the second edition of a comprehensive account of the issues of nutrition and health in the developing world ... . The tables and figures are generally helpful in supporting the text ... . This is a useful book for many working across disciplines that bridge nutrition and health within the context of developing countries. ... will help program developers and policy makers." (Noel Chavez, Doody's Review Service, January, 2009)"This is an excellent comprehensive and authoritative multidisciplinary treatment of a subject of overwhelming importance in today's developing countries...The purposeful overlap between these chapters on specific disease and health problems and subsequent chapters on nutritional deficiencies in the third section of the book is to be highly commended, because the epidemiology and consequences of nutrition and infection are inseparable; they interact synergistically in almost all circumstances...Great advances have been made in the understanding of micronutrient malnutrition in the last three decades, its multiple nature, and the interactions among nutrients. It is now evident that micronutrient deficiencies usually occur together and require an integrated…mehr
