The vision for this book belongs to David H. Murdock, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Dole Food Company, Inc. Mr. Murdock brought his vision and a request for assistance in making it a reality to two of the authors: Robert A. Rizza, M.D., of Mayo Clinic, and Gail G. Harrison, Ph.D., R.D., University of California Los Angeles School of Public Health. They each saw the potential value in this vision and committed themselves to recruit scientific colleagues and technical expertise to bring it to fruition.

The authors all contributed to various stages of the evolution of this volume. Specific contributions are worthy of special mention. Jennifer K. Nelson, R.D., M. Molly McMahon, M.D., and Robert A. Rizza, M.D., developed the material in Chapters 1 through 5. Kristine A. Kuhnert, R.D., contributed to Chapters 1 through 5 and served as project manager. Judith M. Ashley, Ph.D., R.D., provided the original draft for all of Part II (except the chapters on fruits and vegetables). Sydne J. Newberry, Ph.D., contributed to Chapters 1 and 2 and was the editor and major writer for the fruits and vegetables chapters. Dr. Rizza oversaw the entire process and served as one of the Editors-in-Chief. Other Editors-in-Chief were Vay Liang W. Go., M.D., M. Molly McMahon, M.D., and Gail G. Harrison, Ph.D., R.D.
