Book Description:
It is well-known that diets high in vegetables are associated with lower rates of chronic diseases and cancers. Vegetables provide a good source of nutrients and dietary fiber which are essential for various bodily functions. Throughout the world, though, reported vegetable consumption is well below the recommended levels set by the World Health Organization. In this book, the authors present current research in the study of vegetable consumption and health. Topics discussed include food insecurity and vegetable consumption; quality control for pesticide residues in olives and olive oil; pest management of cruciferous crops in China; availability and utilization of traditional vegetables; cucumbers as a source of biological active substances and vegetable consumption by older adults in Japan.
