As the incidence of diabetes, heart disease, and other obesity-related disorders rise, weight-conscious Americans seek easy ways to pursue healthful diets. There is an abundance of information from the popular media on the topic, but to get a more objective presentation of diets, nutrition, and health, the library user may want to turn to The Gale Encyclopedia of Diets: A Guide to Health and Nutrition. This reference contains 275 articles contributed by specialists in nutrition and medical writing. Topics are arranged alphabetically, with a master index at the end of the second volume. Color figures illustrate some articles, while lists of resources—books, periodicals, and organizations—accompany all of them. In addition to special or popular diets (Anti-inflammatory diets, Subway diet), the encyclopedia describes nutrition-related health problems (Bulimia nervosa, Diabetes mellitus) and other nutrition-related topics.
