Detailed Review of Nutritional Therapies Used to Combat Elderly Health Issues The combination of the aging baby-boomer generation and their increased longevity has been fortunately met with increased research and greater understanding of health promotion and disease prevention in the elderly. Handbook of Nutrition in the Aged: Fourth Edition shares these groundbreaking insights and serves as a guide to better understand health problems that occur in aging adults and the nutritional therapies that are proven to fight and prevent them. Addresses Requirements for Optimum Health of Aging Physiological Systems This sharply focused work recognizes the special nutrition hurdles associated with the aged, particularly the decline of nutrient intake that compromises health.
