Summary: This title reviews the interactions between bacteria in the human intestinal tract, and the effects on nutrition and the immune system. The editors, who are well known for their work in this subject, have drawn together an list of known international contributors. Covering major aspects of the subject including probiotics and functional foods, the immune system in health and disease, oral tolerance, food and allergic disease and carcinogenesis, each chapter carefully reviews the latest research and important facts in each area. The book should prove a useful point of reference for all nutritionists, food microbiologists and immunologists.
