Introduction
The Gale Encyclopedia of Diets: A Guide to Health
and Nutrition is a one-stop source for diet and nutrition
information that covers popular and special diets,
nutrition basics, and nutrition-related health conditions.
It also particularly addresses health and nutrition
concerns across all age groups from infancy through
old age. This encyclopedia avoids medical jargon and
uses language that laypersons can understand, while
still providing thorough coverage of each topic. The
Gale Encyclopedia of Diets: A Guide to Health and
Nutrition is not meant to be an endorsement for any
one diet or lifestyle but rather it presents authoritative,
balanced information.
