"The authors describe, summarize, and assess the scientific research available for each food and make conclusions as to whether or not health benefit claims are valid. … Given the attention that is being paid today to the study of 'food as medicine,' this book … would be an indispensable addition to the collections of food and nutrition professionals and researchers in industry, government, and universities."
