Description:
From the Summary and Recommendations: "This first 'Surgeon General's Report on Nutrition and Health' offers comprehensive documentation of the scientific basis for the recommended dietary changes. Through the extensive review contained in its chapters, the Report examines in detail current knowledge about the relationships among specific dietary practices and specific disease conditions and summarizes the implications of this information for individual food choices, public health policy initiatives, and further research. The Report's main major conclusion is that over-consumption of certain dietary components is now a major concern for Americans. While many food factors are involved, chief among them is the disproportionate consumption of foods high in fats, often at the expense of foods high in complex carbohydrates and fiber that may be more conducive to health." Blank pages are vi, 82, 138, 176, 248, 310, 344, 464, 594, and 628.
