The New Revised Nutrition Notes is a mini-course on nutrition that covers
essential knowledge in a practical format.This book is valuable to a wide range
of people. We recommend it to students, nutritionists, physicians and to
everyone who is interested in preventing and healing food-related diseases, the
most common diseases in the US and Canada.
From Dr Gislason's Preface:
Nutrition notes began as my notebook, studying biochemistry more than 30
years ago. As a medical student, I was fascinated by biochemistry and drew large
charts on my walls showing the interrelationships of intermediary metabolism.
Nutrients are the input to metabolism and you might assume that foods in
reasonable combinations will provide the necessary input. When you are a
student, you are busy learning what is known and lack the experience to ask good
questions about what is not known. I, for example, did not have any questions
about problems involved in digesting foods into nutrients and problems absorbing
nutrients. I never imagined that such good things as food proteins could cause
disease. I never considered that the immune system would interact with the food
supply and produce disease. These questions arose many years later, after I
became ill and discovered that some foods made me so.
The term nutrition means mean a lot of different things to
different people. Some people adopt the term as a professional label; many
companies borrow the term to claim a relationship to professional nutrition.
Universities may have departments of nutrition. Often the study of nutrition is
disconnected from the real world of agricultural practices, food processing and
distribution. The intense marketing efforts of food and drug companies flood the
media with deliberately biased information that confuses everyone.
I hope that Nutrition Notes will fill the need for a guide to therapy-based
nutritional knowledge. I hope that physicians and dieticians will read this book
so that they can apply their revised knowledge to help people solve health
problems. I also hope that all intelligent people who have to learn about
nutrition to solve their own health problems will benefit from reading this book
and keeping it as a reference.
