Publisher Description

Micronutrient deficiency affects more than two billion people in the world today, contributing to the vicious cycle of malnutrition and underdevelopment. Micronutrient deficiencies have long-ranging effects on health, learning ability and productivity. Food-based approaches, which include food production, dietary diversification and food fortification, are sustainable strategies for improving the micronutrient status of populations. This book focuses on practical, sustainable actions for overcoming micronutrient deficiencies through increased access to, and consumption of, adequate quantities and an appropriate variety of safe, good-quality food. It is suitable for policymakers, agronomists, food and nutrition security planners, and health workers.

Review
“More than two billion people suffer from a micronutrient deficiency of trace minerals and vitamins that has debilitating effects on their physical health, mental acuity, learning ability, and economic productivity. The 'cure' for a micronutrient deficiency is to be found in food production, dietary diversification, and food fortification. The global problem of micronutrient deficiencies is of serious concern to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. Two of their staff, Brian Thompson and Leslie Amoroso, have collaborated to compile ”Combating Micronutrient Deficiencies: Food-Based Approaches,“ a 256-page compendium of nineteen articles by experts in their fields, that has as its focus thematically appropriate, applicable, sustainable techniques, strategies, and practices to insure the production of safe, good-quality food as a means of successfully ameliorating micronutrient deficiencies anywhere in the world. Enhanced with bibliographic references and a comprehensive and exhaustive index, ”Combating Micronutrient Deficiencies“ is a significant and invaluable addition to professional and academic library Nutritional Studies reference collections.”
