Summary
"A discussion is due regarding current attitudes and trends in society on vegetarian diets and how the Dietary Guidelines for Americans and various health professional organizations consider plant-based diets. A surge of interest in the sustainability of various diets demands a close look at the environmental issues surrounding a nonmeat-based diet. This book synthesizes research around vegetarian diets and human health. Chapters cover nutrient profiles of vegetarian diets; impacts on the environment; prevention of chronic diseases; supplementation for nutrients not found in vegetarian diets; foods and food components in health; and vegetarian diets for special populations and ethnic groups."--Provided by publisher
