The current book, A Guide to Modern Living, is essential for everyone because nutrition is so tightly linked to the environment, which is fast deteriorating with contaminants, etc. My diverse background in healthful practices and use of food as preventative medicine, must also be a contributory reason for my objectives in the field, namely, to help people who have not paid much attention to food until stricken by chronic disease that can be linked to poor nutrition. This book, like the two preceding ones, tries to explain the confusing role of nutrition in human health and diseases. This book, the third in a mini-series, will be suitable for a nutrition or an epidemiology course. The readership population is general. This is not just a book for epidemiology or nutrition students, but also for every informed person. It is for adults who have taken back control of their nutrition and health (rather than staying surrendered to the whims of the food industry). These newly enlightened individuals need guidance in finding their own way in the very complex minefield of modern nutrition (food production and supply) and an environment that is growingly less healthful (mainly owing to human activity).
