In his revolutionary book, Nutrition by the Numbers, Dr. Ramsden introduces us to the Global Nutritional Quality Index (NQI). This innovative tool promises to elevate dietary advice to an unprecedented level, and carry nutrition science into the 21st century.
In a nutshell, the Global NQI assigns all-inclusive scores to foods ranging from -10 (toxic) to +10 (exceptional). This easily understood food rating system allows busy consumers to effortlessly apply worldwide advances in nutrition to their everyday lives.
Though user-friendly, the science behind the the Global NQI is impressive and complex. Nutritional biochemistry and preventive nutrition are examined in light of evolutionary, historical and population-based perspectives. Ratings reflect not only cholesterol and insulin metabolism, but also inflammation, blood clotting, fat accumulation, oxidative stress and other key processes largely neglected by conventional U.S. advice. Over 1200 references provide convincing rationale for the Global NQI system. Alternatively, readers can jump right to the ratings, and immediately improve their food selections.
The end result is a tool with far more breadth and muscle than one-dimensional U.S. dietary guidelines. A tool capable of empowering Americans to prevent the 'Big 7' epidemic U.S. diseases.
