About the Author

Dr. Clifford Adams, originally from the UK, received his doctorate from the University of Illinois, USA and subsequently spent almost 25 years at Nutritional Services Director with a feed additive producer in Belgium.  During this time he developed various nutritional strategies.  These included; the concept of nutricines or bioactive feed ingredients, the Total Nutrition programme and the Nutrition-Based Health approach to animal production.  These nutritional strategies were published by Nottingham University Press in the UK.

In May 2007 he established his own company, ANOZENE Nutritional Sciences, based in Belgium, where he continues his research and writing in the development of nutritional strategies for humans and animals.  There is a particular interest in the relationship between nutrition and health and the Nutrition-based Health concept is now being further developed for application in human nutrition.
