Phytochemicals in Health and Disease
edited by Yongping Bao and Roger Fenwick

Phytochemicals in Health and Disease discusses the potential of phytochemicals to prevent at least three of the leading causes of death in the United States: cancer, cardiovascular disease, and hypertension.

Responding to the increasing number of scientific reports emphasizing the importance of phytochemicals in disease prevention, this reference describes the function, metabolism, and biological activities of selected phytochemicals and documents their role in the modulation of enzyme activity, adduct formation, and gene expression.
