Title of interest - Food Habits in Later Life: A Cross Cultural Study

By Mark L. Wahlqvist et al.

This study provides scholars, policy experts, and general readers with solid data and analysis regarding dietary practices of diverse populations of elderly communities in Australia, China, Greece, Japan, the Philippines, and Sweden. The work also brings together cross-cultural studies of food and health among elderly in other communities of Asia, Europe, and Central America.

The study makes an important contribution to the great need for descriptive research on the health status, lifestyle, and eating habits of the elderly in developed and developing countries. The study also makes available a mass of data needed to determine to what extent eating habits and lifestyle predict health status in the elderly.
