"This book represents a well organized and edited report of the Sixth Annual Public Health Forum.... Surely, [the Forum] and this book...borrowing a sentence from the preface, have 'given a significant contribution to the...acceleration of action that is required to counter and reverse...diet-related NCD.'" (European Journal of Public Health, Vol. 9, No. 1, 1999)
