Handbook of obesity : etiology and pathophysiology by George A Bray( )

40 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 837 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Now in its third edition, The Handbook of Obesity: Epidemiology, Etiology, and Physiopathology offers comprehensive coverage of the biological, behavioural, and environmental determinants of obesity and how excess weight affects and exacerbates a range of comorbid conditions including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, pulmonary function, arthritis, and cancer. The content of this new edition reflects our evolving understanding of the causes and consequences of obesity. The text now constitutes five sections: History and Prevalence, Biological Determinants, Behavioural Determinants, Environmental, Social, and Cultural determinants, Consequences of Obesity. We now have a much better understanding of internal, biological factors associated with the development of obesity and the new edition dedicates 18 chapters to discussing the role of internal mechanisms on weight gain including chapters discussing genotype, early fetal life and events, the regulation of energy balance, the role of adipose tissue, and energy costs, among others. The role of our individual behaviours and degrees to which these, as well as larger cultural and environmental factors, influence our eating and weight issues is now also better understood thanks to increased research. These sections look at the likes of our work culture, drinking, sleep duration, and changing eating behaviours, as well as government-level food policies, changing advertising practices, economic determinants, and cultural traits relating to weight gain. Finally, we are now increasingly aware of the damage excess weight has on our bodies and the role it plays in the development of disease. The many diseases that have obesity as important risk factors are discussed in 15 chapters and include heart disease, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, cancer, liver disease, and pulmonary function"--Provided by publisher
Physical activity and health by Claude Bouchard( Book )

23 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in English and Hebrew and held by 782 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sedentary habits have been identified as a major public health problem in many countries. The timely Physical Activity and Health fills an unmet need by providing a thorough treatment of the relationship between physical activity and health outcomes." "Physical Activity and Health begins by defining basic concepts and then tracing the history of the subject. It then brings together the results of the most important studies in this rapidly changing field. It also summarizes evidence accumulated on the levels of physical activity and fitness and variations with age, between genders, and among ethnic groups." "The text explains the latest advances in understanding the effects of acute and chronic participation in physical activity and reviews the relationships between regular physical activity and health outcomes, including cardiovascular morbidities, mental health, and all-cause mortality. It also explores the relationships between the level of fitness and those same health outcomes." "The book ends by focusing on the "how" and deals with dose-response issues and types of exercise programs before exploring how advances in genetics challenge our understanding of the complex relationships between physical activity, fitness, and health." "Physical Activity and Health offers a detailed yet concise and clear presentation of key concepts. It is a comprehensive resource ideal for anyone who wishes to learn about the relationship between physical activity and health."--Jacket
Exercise, fitness, and health : a consensus of current knowledge by Claude Bouchard( Book )

16 editions published between 1988 and 1997 in English and held by 579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Exercise, Fitness, and Health" contains a consensus of current knowledge about the relationships among exercise, fitness and health. Eighty-seven scientists contribute 62 papers in which they analyze and summarize research in their respective disciplines.
