Origin and evolution of the universe : evidence for design?( Book )

15 editions published between 1987 and 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Does the universe have the character it has because of design? In this collection of essays first presented at a symposium sponsored by the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research and the Royal Society of Canada, seventeen scientists and philosophers re-examine the "Argument by Design" in light of current scientific theories. Scientists in such diverse fields as cosmology, physics, geology, biology, and psychology provide syntheses of the state of their respective disciplines with regard to questions such as the origin or evolution of the universe and of life, the interaction of life and terrestrial environment, and verbal communication in prehumans. Contributions by philosophers cover such areas as arguments for as designer and the question of whether nature's laws and initial conditions could be viewed as "fine tuned" for the production of life. Many of the chapters demonstrate the awe-inspiring success of modern science in explaining the universe in terms of fairly straightforward natural laws, countering those versions of the design argument which try to find evidence of God's activities in the supposed failures of scientific laws to cover various phenomena. This book not only raises important questions about our understanding of the world and its origins abut also provides a fascinating view of the different perspectives on this topic

17 editions published between 1989 and 2009 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How does diet influence heart disease, cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, and kidney disease? What is its role in hypertension and obesity? Can an altered diet reduce risk of disease, make people healthier, and contribute to longer life expectancy? Can we use the knowledge we have more effectively? What are the economic and social implications of changing the diets of entire populations? Can anything be learned from the history of public health and disease patterns? These and other questions were considered by experts from around the world at a symposium co-sponsored by the Royal Society of Canada and the Food and Nutrition Board of the US National Academy of Sciences. Diet, Nutrition, and Health reports the results of these discussions
Current perspectives on nutrition and health by K. K Carroll( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent research on health and nutrition confirms the important role of diet in maintaining health and reducing the risk of chronic disease and reinforces the link between diet and heart disease, cancer, and obesity. While death rates for cardiovascular diseases continue to decline, health risks in other areas are increasing. Obesity is on the verge of becoming epidemic and Syndrome X (the deadly trio of insulin resistance, obesity, and hyperlipidemia) has been implicated in many chronic diseases. To explore these new developments in nutrition and health research the Royal Society of Canada sponsored a symposium in 1996 that brought together researchers from around the world. Current Perspectives on Nutrition and Health is based on that symposium
Challenging genetic determinism : new perspectives on the gene in its multiple environments by Royal Society of Canada( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Advances in genetic research have captured the attention of the media and the public through reports about genetically caused diseases and behaviours. However, all too often the coverage of scientists' innovations has implied that genetic factors alone are responsible for effects ranging from personality and sexual preferences to morbid obesity and intellectual disabilities. This book argues that hypotheses cannot be based solely on genetic factors but must take into account the context in which these factors occur. Reviewing a century of developments in understanding the interplay of genes and environments, contributors demonstrate the importance of considering contextual influences as well as genetic factors and provide a comprehensive method for understanding recent research findings. The compelling new findings presented here highlight how personality traits, complex diseases and behaviours, and social and ethical issues, are all related to the interaction of genes and the environment
