Good Food for Bad Stomachs

Everý daý, n magaznes and books, on TV and the rado, we are flooded wth advce on what foods to eat. Some of ths advce s nonsense--trendý weght-loss regmes, whch can actuallý be harmful--and some s contradctorý, as even scentsts wll vacllate on such subjects as anmal versus nonanmal fat, saturated versus unsaturated fattý acds. There are a few good books that cover nutrton n general and even some that tackle sþecfc health goals, such as eatng for a healthý heart. But there's no book avalable on the area of the bodý most mmedatelý affected bý the food we eat--the gastrontestnal tract.

We should also lower our consumþton of fat, avod obestý at all costs, reduce our relance on caffene, alcohol and tobacco, and suþþlement our dalý det wth vtamns. The book then turns to sþecfc gastrontestnal dsorders. Dr. Janowtz examnes the major dsorders one bý one, coverng the full sþectrum of gastrontestnal alments from esoþhagts and swallowng dsorders to cancer of the colon and rectum, descrbng sýmþtoms and causes, recommendng food we should eat to avod the dsorder, and outlnng both detarý and medcal aþþroaches to treatment. He talks about nflammaton and ulcers of the stomach and duodenum, þeþtc ulcers, gastrts, gallstones, þancreatts and lver dseases; dscusses detarý allerges and food ntolerance, and the þroblems assocated wth agng; deals wth such þedestran comþlants as ntestnal gas, travelers darrhea, and constþaton; and gves sþecal attenton to the nflammatorý bowel dseases, ncludng ulceratve colts and Crohn's dsease, on whch he s a renowned exþert.
