New York/Stuttgart – The second edition of An Evidence-Based Approach to Phytochemicals and Other Dietary Factors, recently published by Thieme, explores the role of a plant-based diet in health and disease. Fueled by the recent explosion of information on the subject, all 20 chapters of the first edition have been updated to incorporate new information from the relevant, more recently published peer-reviewed studies, especially studies with human subjects. It has been expanded to include new sections on choline, coenzyme Q10, L-Carnitine, lipoic acid, and other dietary factors. This book is ideal for nutritionists, dieticians, nurses, and other health care professionals who need to educate patients about sound food choices.

Praise for the previous edition:

“I highly recommend this monograph for physicians, dietitians, and other health practitioners as well as the health-aware public. It captures what you need to know in a succinct but comprehensive fashion.” -- American Journal of Lifestyle Medicine

“The application of this knowledge about phytochemicals and other dietary factors will provide a sound foundation for new dietary guidelines and also the requisite scientific substantiation for the development of new food products…there is no doubt that evaluating the emerging scientific information with sound judgment, as is done in this book, will help health-care providers, especially dietitians, nurses, and physicians, apply it today and allow policymakers and researchers to plan for the future in a rational manner.” – From the Foreword
