CHOICE Review

Vegetables, Fruits, and Herbs, part of the publisher's "Series in Modern Nutrition," draws together the recent thought and research about the role of plant materials and their extracts in health promotion and disease prevention. The work, edited by Watson (public health, Univ. of Arizona), contains 20 chapters by 33 international experts. The work is divided into four sections: "Vegetables and Health"; "Vegetable Extracts and Nutrient Supplements: Health Promotion"; "Herbs and Health"; and "Fruits and Promotion of Health." The chapters therein are arranged similarly with an introduction, conclusion, and a generous bibliography and together provide an overview of botanicals in nutrition, especially with respect to heart disease and cancer. Informative visuals are provided throughout and a succinct three-page index completes the monograph. Health scientists and physicians will appreciate the book's readable text as introductory material and as a beginning for further study. The information presented is scholarly yet accessible to any educated readership and therefore is recommended for academic libraries, including medical institutions, serving undergraduate and graduate students interested in public health. General readers; undergraduates through professionals. C. Brown; University of Oklahoma
