Bibliographic information


From the reviews:

“This book focuses solely on the relationship between nutrition and children’s pulmonary issues. … The intended audience is anyone wishing to learn more about the relationship of nutrition to pulmonary diseases. It would be most appropriate for specialists who work with children who have pulmonary disease. … the book does present the most up-to-date information in this area. This could be a valuable resource for healthcare professionals working with a pediatric population with pulmonary disease as well as for those interested in learning more.” (Amy Hess-Fischl, Doody’s Book Reviews, February, 2014)
