From the reviews: "A. Stewart Truswell has written a very informative and at the same time entertaining and highly readable account of the nutritional epidemiology of CHD ... . I would strongly recommend this book ... . also be of considerable interest to epidemiologists, nutritionists, and public health scientists who are attempting to study nutrition and other diseases. ... Most importantly, this would be an extremely good book to ... research colleagues who doubt the value of good nutrition epidemiology research in the public's health." (Lewis H. Kuller, American Journal of Epidemiology, Vol. 173 (9), 2011)
