      The role of nutrition in hospital recovery cannot be stated too strongly. Nutrition plays a premier role in a strong response system to the ravages of infection on the body. The immune system, which is the body's defense mechanism against infection, relies intricately on how well the body is nourished. Nutrition is an input to and foundation for health and development. Interaction of infection and malnutrition is well-documented. Better nutrition means stronger immune systems, less illness and better health. Healthy children learn better. Healthy people are stronger, are more productive and more able to create opportunities to gradually break.

    interactions, and these vary from person to person. Drug-nutrient interactions involve changes to a drug caused by a nutrient, or changes to a nutrient as a result of the drug. Food-drug interactions is a broader term that describes the effects of a drug on nutritional status. Each of these interactions may lead to many complications.

The book discusses infection–nutrition interactions in special age groups such as children, adolescents, and the elderly. It also reviews emerging nutritional and anti-infective strategies with an emphasis on future research directions. The book is useful for epidemiologists, nutritionists, and health care staff caring for patients/5(2).

The book is a great summary detailing the various facets of nutrition- infection interactions, with up to date references to both clinical and basic science research.

The information is relevant to scientists in the field in developing countries as well as in the developed world/5(2). Nutrition and infection are often at a crossroads, interacting with each other and influencing human health.

In this context, nutrition. Both nutrition deficiency and overnutrition can have a significant effect on the risk of infection. Nutrition, Immunity, and Infection focuses on the influence of diet on the immune system and how altering one’s diet helps prevent and treat infections and chronic diseases.
