Its comprehensive coverage of medical nutrition therapy and public health nutrition far exceeds the standard medical dictionaries. With more than 3000 carefully selected entries and 50 appendices, the new Fourth edition includes 380 new terms and more than 600 revised and expanded definitions. Definitions are cross-referenced to other entries and the materials found in the Appendix to provide further details and information.
