Nutrition and fitness : obesity, the metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, and cancer by Artemis P Simopoulos( Book )

34 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite the enormous interest in discovering longevity genes in humans, the results have been elusive, while the effects of physical activity in delaying aging are promising and the importance of caloric restriction is now being systematically investigated. At present, there is enough evidence to define the components of a healthy diet and physical activity lifestyle at the population level and it is clear that lack of exercise is associated with increased risk of premature chronic disease and death. Currently, research aims at defining the type and frequency of genetic variation and its influence on dietary response as well as the impact of diet and exercise on gene expression. The book also provides detailed critical reviews of the relationship between mood changes and the amount of protein, amino acids, carbohydrates and polyunsaturated fatty acids, and the effects of genetic and environmental factors in bone turnover and bone density. This publication will be of great interest to researchers, physicians, exercise physiologists, geneticists, dietitians, food scientists, policy makers in government, private industry and international organizations, and public health workers worldwide
Genetic nutrition : designing a diet based on your family medical history by Artemis P Simopoulos( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In no other area of health is there more misinformation and confusion than nutrition. The authors carefully distinguish myth from fact. They show that universal dietary recommendations issued by medical panels and intended for the entire population may not make the best sense in individual cases. A book of scrupulous medical authority and important practical application, Genetic Nutrition arms you with knowledge that will help you live a longer, healthier life
Obesity : new directions in assessment and management( Book )

4 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides a wealth of information about the adverse effects of overweight on health and longevity and focuses on innovative theories dealing with the pathogenesis of this disorder. In addition, it offers a thoroughly detailed discussion of the newest approaches used in treatment and overall management of obesity."--Foreword
Health effects of polyunsaturated fatty acids in seafoods by Artemis P Simopoulos( Book )

The Omega plan : the medically proven diet that restores your body's essential nutritional balance by Artemis P Simopoulos( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Introduces a six-week program designed to restore the proper balance of fatty acids in the human diet, explaining how to promote natural weight loss and decrease the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and other ailments
The Omega diet : the lifesaving nutritional program based on the diet of the Island of Crete by Artemis P Simopoulos( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and Chinese and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The medically proven diet that restores your body's essential nutritional balanc. "Good fats"--essential fatty acids--influence every aspect of our being, from the beating of our hearts to our ability to learn to remember. There are two types of essential fatty acids (EFAs), omega-6 and omega-3. The problem with our modern diet is that it contains far more omega-6 fatty acids than omega-3s. This hidden imbalance makes us more vulnerable to heart disease, cancer, obesity, autoimmmune diseases, allergies, diabetes, and depression
Nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics by J. M Ordovas( Book )

16 editions published in 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the first time, international scientists describe the advances in genetics and nutrition by combining methods of molecular biology with those of functional genetics, also known as systems biology. This book provides the latest data on genetic variation and dietary response, nutrients and gene expression, and the contribution molecular biology has given to systems biology. It also includes a comprehensive critique of genetic association studies in defining the risk of chronic diseases and concludes that molecular diagnostic tests will eventually affect every area of health care from individual risk prediction, early diagnosis of disease, and determination of optimal treatment regimens, to monitoring treatment effectiveness. The appendix contains an extensive glossary of the newly emerging terminology, as well as recommendations for genetic screening.This publication is an essential tool for the future work of all physicians, nutritionists, dietitians, geneticists, physiologists, molecular biologists, anthropologists, food technologists, policy makers, ethicists and educators
Dietary [omega] 3 and [omega] 6 fatty acids : biological effects and nutritional essentiality by NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Dietary Omega 3 and Omega 6 Fatty Acids: Biological Effects and Nutritional Essentiality( Book )

9 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Biomedical and behavioral basis of clinical nutrition : a projection for the 1980s : report of a national conference, June 19-20, 1978( Book )

6 editions published between 1978 and 1979 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Plants in human health and nutrition policy( Book )

14 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present volume includes a series of studies on edible wild plants and their impact on human health. Today the diet of developed societies is limited to a few cultivated vegetables while the developing countries often lack an adequate supply of micronutrients. Wild plants contain antioxidant, omega-3 fatty acid and micronutrient components that contribute to both a decrease in the risk for chronic diseases as well as the reduction of nutritional deficiencies. Thus they address many diet-related problems at both ends of the socio-economic spectrum. Results from research provide data on the composition of indigenous plants from various areas of the world and show that consumption of green leafy vegetables corrects deficiencies successfully. The book also deals with nutrition policy integrating indigenous foods against micronutrient deficiency. Implementation of scientific evidence is an essential precondition for improving nutrition policy.Nutritionists, food producers, botanists, agronomists, food technologists, pharmacologists as well as all professionals involved with food policy and human development will find in this book a valuable and updated basis for their work

More on Mediterranean diets( Book )

13 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is an update of the previous volume on Mediterranean diets published in 2000, which provided extensive reviews of the various diets existing in the Mediterranean region. Since then, a number of studies have been published on the relationship between a Mediterranean-type of diet and chronic diseases. However, because the 'diet score' used in those studies does not provide any information on the nutritional composition or quality of the diet, this publication takes an entirely different approach: Particular attention is given to the nutritional factors and their mechanisms in cardiovascular disease, cancer, metabolic syndrome and obesity, and the results of decreasing the omega-6:omega-3 ratio and its anti-inflammatory effects on several biomarkers are evaluated. Moreover, the effects of olive oil, relative to its antioxidant properties, and the anti-inflammatory and anticarcinogenic aspects of melatonin from plants and fruits common in the Mediterranean region are discussed.Illustrating that the combination of a balanced ratio of omega-6:omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants, along with wine and olive oil, are essential components of a healthy diet, this publication will be of interest to physicians, nutritionists, dietitians, food scientists and technologists, anthropologists, scientists in academia, agriculturalists, and policy makers
