Nutrition Transition by Benjamin Caballero
Book DescriptionThis book deals with the dramatic changes in diet and lifestyle that are occurring in the developing world as a result of globalization, and their impact on human health. The Editors have assembled a leading group of scientists in ten fields of economics, population sciences, international health, medicine, nutrition and food sciences, to address each of the key issues related to the changes in demographic trends, food production and marketing, and disease patterns in the developing world. The "Nutrition Transition" provides essential information to understand the far-reaching effects that global economic, social and cultural trends are having on diet-related disease patterns in countries of transition. It contains numerous illustrative figures and tables. It features two case studies on China and Brazil. Foreword is written by Nevin Scrimshaw, who is the recipient of the World Food Prize.
