The literature has all been reviewed in Pubmed, but NOT ALL abstracts are included here for practical reasons. Papers have been chosen that have most relevance to the clinical practice of the diet, and has in no way tried to favour particular authors or institutions. Individuals seeking further literature on the different topics can search on Pubmed if they wish (www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed). Full papers can be obtained via the websites of the individual journals, but usually at a cost.
