rheumatic diseases. In Nutrition and Rheumatic Disease, experts
provide a comprehensive review of current knowledge regarding
nutrition and dietary management for the complex set of rheumatic
conditions. Within the disease-specific chapters, the authors present

current management and treatment, a review of the literature related
to nutritional status and diet, and dietary recommendations, based on
current scientific evidence. The field of rheumatic diseases includes
a wide variety of pathologic processes. Adequate reviews of the
scientific literature on each of the rheumatic diseases in Nutrition
and Rheumatic Disease alleviate the inherent confusion surrounding the
risks and benefits of various dietary therapies.

Optimizing Women's Health through Nutrition (1)

Product Details
Book Publisher: CRC (03 December, 2007)
ISBN: 1420043005
Book author: Lilian U. Thompson, Wendy E. Ward
Amazon Rating:

Book Description:
It is no surprise that women and men experience biological and
physiological differences fundamentally and throughout the lifecycle.
What is surprising is that faced with such a self-evident truth, there
should be so little consideration to date of how these differences
affect susceptibility to disease and metabolic response to dietary
treatment. Understanding these differences and developing a ***-based
approach focusing on the specific needs and conditions of women is
crucial to achieve effective nutritional strategies for women's
health. Expanding the knowledge-base regarding ***, nutrition, and
medicine, Optimizing Women's Health through Nutrition presents the
biology, physiology, and metabology unique to women. The book
demonstrates in a practical, accessible manner the scientific
application of this data addressing lifecycle changes, disease
prevention, and treatment. Based on sound research and supported by
extensive references, it begins by describing recent research on
biological and physiological differences and how these differences
translate into varying disease trends between the ***es. Contributions
describe the nutritional needs of women during the lifecycle,
particularly during adolescence, pregnancy and lactation,
premenopause, and menopause and midlife stages. The bulk of the book
addresses each of the common major diseases or conditions that
specifically affect the health of women. It emphasizes the role of
nutrition in disease risk reduction as well as management and
treatment of disease. Specific disease selection was dictated by those
in which women are more vulnerable or have a higher incidence than
men. The concluding section identifies areas for future research and
strategic areas of investigation for researchers and health
professionals, government regulators, and food industry professionals
involved in creating novel foods that enhance women's health.

Book Publisher: CRC (29 January, 2008)
ISBN: 0849381711
Book author: Glenn R. Gibson, Marcel Roberfroid
Amazon Rating:

Book Description:
In order to achieve optimal digestion, absorption, and nutritional
health, we must have appropriate populations of positive microflora.
Prebiotics are functional foods that improve health by fortifying
indigenous probiotics within the gut. This fast-growing area of
nutrition and microbiology is rapidly amassing data and answering many
questions about the necessity and benefit of such functional foods.
Gathering contributions from leading experts in a range of
disciplines, Handbook of Prebiotics presents a balanced view of the
current knowledge in many different areas of the field. It discusses
concept, definition and criteria for classification of a food
component as prebiotics It then describes interactions with gut
microbiota. Highlighting varying levels of evidence and agreement, the
book presents current arguments for and against prebiotic intake.
Contributions discuss the biomechanics of prebiotics and their effects
on immune status, serum lipid concentrations, mineral bioavailability,
and satiety modulation. They consider the health implications of
prebiotic intake such as reduced incidence of gastroenteritis and
chronic pathogenic gut disorders, including intestinal cancers and
inflammatory bowel diseases.
Providing well-rounded coverage, the book explores the varying effects
of prebiotics in different populations and age groups such as infants
and the elderly, as well as livestock and pets. The final chapters
describe food avenues and the safety implications for prebiotic use.
Spanning several disciplines including food science, nutrition,
microbiology, biotechnology, and the health sciences, this seminal
work makes a point to include sound research science and well-balanced
views on the potential of prebiotics for promoting good health.

Book Description:
The prevalence of obesity, metabolic syndrome and diabetes three links
of the same atherothrombotic chain has reached pandemic proportions
worldwide. As a result, our civilization is at war against a

Book Description:
The Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity presents an up-to-date survey of
the current scientific understanding of obesity and the metabolic
syndrome, as well as an overview of the most significant changes to
the field over the past 30 years. By first presenting a historical

means that we neither understand it, nor have developed effective
therapies. The Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity is a comprehensive
reference for the treatment of obesity in two parts. Part I, The
Problem, examines the entire scope of the obesity epidemic, including
epidemiology and history, costs of treatment, pathology, clinical
types, age-related issues, and general health risks. Part II, The
Solutions, describes several treatment options including diet,
behavior modification, exercise, pharmacological treatment, and
surgery. This volume is a thorough reference for obesity and the
metabolic syndrome and offers an in-depth assessment of the problem
and its myriad potential treatment options.

ISBN: 0792366034
Book author: G.A. Colditz, D.J. Hunter
Amazon Rating:

Book Description:
This volume, the first in the new series Cancer Prevention - Cancer
Causes, is derived from the 1st and 2nd Reports of the Harvard Center
for Cancer Prevention published in Cancer Causes and Control, 1996;
7(Suppl 1) and 1997; 8(Suppl 2), respectively. In this volume we
expand on materials to summarize the evidence on causes of cancer and
to set forth a series of strategies to promote the prevention of
cancer. Cancer Prevention - Cancer Causes is designed to provide a
comprehensive overview of what we know about cancer risk in the United
States (and other established market economies) and the preventive
measures we can take to reduce the burden of cancer. In the first half
of this volume, we review the causes of human cancer considering a
wide range of potential sources of risk such as smoking, diet,
sedentary lifestyle, occupational factors, viruses, and alcohol. We
conclude that cancer is indeed preventable. Over 50 percent of cancers
could be prevented if we could implement what we already know about
the causes of cancer. In the second half of this volume, we summarize
research on prevention programs, public education campaigns, and
social policy measures for preventing cancer. Working in schools,
health clinics, and workplaces as well as through the mass media and
in the political arena, social scientists and health educators are
designing innovative and effective health promotion programs to help
people quit smoking, eat more healthily, and exercise more.
