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

33 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent studies of vascular biology using molecular biology techniques have started to reveal a previously unsuspected complexity of the vascular responses to nutrients and physical activity, thus explaining at the molecular level how healthy lifestyles interact with human genes and how they affect phenotype expression, even in the case of unfavorable genes. These findings have serious implications especially in establishing a solid scientific background for preventive strategies: for the advancement of healthy nutrition, physical activity and life habits, a thorough understanding of how drug/d

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 292 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 288 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
Mediterranean diets( )

15 editions published in 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contrary to popular belief, there is no such thing as one Mediterranean diet: This geographic region includes several nations with varied cultures, traditions, incomes and dietary habits, resulting in a wide variation of dietary patterns. The present volume focuses on the latest research data from basic science and clinical intervention studies that indicate that a balanced ratio of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids and a high antioxidant intake from fruits and vegetables, along with olive oil, contribute to a lower rate of heart disease and increased longevity. These benefits are especially pronounced in the population of Crete, indicating that this diet is particularly healthy. Moreover, descriptions of the diets of Greece, Italy, Spain and the Maghreb are given for the first time, pointing to their differences as well as to their common dietary patterns; these are followed by chapters on the nutritional and metabolic contributions of antioxidants, wine, olive oil and fatty acids. Results from the Lyon Heart Study lead to the conclusion that plasma and cell membrane phospholipid omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acid ratios are among the main biological effects of the experimental modified diet of Crete tested in this trial. Results also show that a pattern based on a modified diet of Crete decreases the death rate of both coronary heart disease and cancer.Physicians, nutritionists, cardiologists, cancer specialists, food scientists, agriculturists, dietitians as well as the informed public will find this volume of particular interest
More on Mediterranean diets( Book )

13 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 249 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

Nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics by Artemis P Simopoulos( Book )

17 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 239 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."--BOOK JACKET
Street foods by Ramesh V Bhat( Book )

14 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This publication focuses on street foods in selected developed and developing countries, including information on nutritional, economic, safety and regulatory aspects and comparing consumption patterns as well as the profiles of the street food vendor in different cultures." "Street foods are inexpensive and available foods that in many countries form an integral part of the diet because they are consumed with regularity and consistency across all income groups, but particularly among the urban poor and schoolchildren. The street food trade is large and complex, providing an important means of generating income, particularly for women, and it is an affordable source of food for many millions of people. Street foods have therefore been considered as a way of reducing problems of urban food insecurity and as a possible vehicle for micronutrient supplementation." "Scientists and policy makers in the areas of international health, nutrition, food and trade as well as physicians, nutritionists, dietitians, food scientists, anthropologists, sociologists will particularly benefit from this publication."--BOOK JACKET

The Omega diet : the lifesaving nutritional program based on the diet of the Island of Crete by Artemis P Simopoulos( Book )

7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 232 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
