The main emphasis is on humans, but comparative mammalian data are also presented.The contents include methods for studying nutrient-immune function interactions, the impact of undernutrition on immune function and infection, the influences of fatty acids, amino acids, antioxidant vitamins, and various minerals on immunity, immunological effects of changes throughout the life cycle, and public health policy implications.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This book should provide an easy way for graduate students, as well as the rest of us, to update ourselves on recent advances in nutritional immunology."--American Journal of Clinical Nutrition
