Abstract

The World Wide Web is an excellent resource for information about nutrition and its relation to health and disease. Unfortunately, some of the websites are not scientifically substantiated. Many of the websites are in fact advertisements for products that may or may not be of value in terms of health. There are some sites that promote the use of unproven herbal products. The reader should be aware of the potential for quackery. Listed in Table 74.1 are websites addressing clinical conditions for which nutrition can be useful. Some of these sites are written to address the layman’s concerns, while others address the interests of physicians and scientists.
