Plants in human health and nutrition policy( )

14 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 515 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

Street foods by Ramesh V Bhat( )

17 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 330 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."--Jacket
Nutrition and fitness : mental health, aging, and the implementation of a healthy diet and physical activity lifestyle by Artemis P Simopoulos( )

24 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 329 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 influ
Mediterranean diets( )

More on Mediterranean diets by Artemis P Simopoulos( )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 292 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
Genetic variation and dietary response by Artemis P Simopoulos( )

14 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This timely volume focuses on genetics and nutrition, and their interaction in the development of chronic diseases. Knowledge of genetic susceptibility to disease will not only help to identify those at higher risk for disease but also to ascertain their response to diet. The prospect of targeting specific dietary treatment at those predicted to gain the most therapeutic benefit clearly has important clinical and economic consequences, particularly in diseases of high prevalence. This book is unique in considering genetic variation in susceptibility to disease, and the importance of specific diets in influencing lipid levels in cardiovascular disease and bone density in osteoporosis. The contributions emphasize that dietary response is dependent on the genetic variant and that specific dietary recommendations rather than universal ones are needed for the prevention and management of chronic diseases. Bringing together vital information for the first time, this book is important reading for physicians, nutritionists, dietitians, geneticists, physiologists, molecular biologists, food technologists and policymakers." -- Prové de l'editor
Genetic nutrition : designing a diet based on your family medical history by Artemis P Simopoulos( Book )

5 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 277 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

4 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 275 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
The Omega diet : the lifesaving nutritional program based on the diet of the Island of Crete by Artemis P Simopoulos( Book )

21 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 271 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
Dietary [omega] 3 and [omega] 6 fatty acids : biological effects and nutritional essentiality by Claudio Galli( Book )

11 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On June 24-26, 1985, a major International Conference on the Hea1th Effects of P01yunsaturated Fatty Acids in Seafoods was held in Washington, D.C. The conference had two objectives: (1) to review the research data on the health effects of polyunsaturated fatty acids in seafoods in terms of the impact of omega-3 fatty acids on eicosanoid formation, thrombosis and inflammation, and the role of docosahexaenoic acid in membrane function and metabolism, and (2) to develop a research agenda to determine the spectrum of the health effects of polyunsaturated fatty acids of seafood origin in the American diet. The 1985 conference established the fact that omega-3 fatty acids of marine origin - eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) - play important roles in prostaglandin metabolism, thrombosis and atherosc1erosis, immunology and inflammation, and membrane function. In response to the conference recommendations, the Congress of the United States provided special funding for the establishment of a "test materials 1aboratory" within the US Department of Commerce to produce under documented quality contr01 the types and quanti ties of omega-3 te~3t materials required by biomedica1 researchers. The forms of test materials to be produced include refined fish oil, polyunsaturated fatty acid enhanced triglycerides, concentrates of esters of fatty acids, purified omega-3 fatty acids, and omega-3 mono-, di- and tri~lyceride mixtures

Nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics by J. M Ordovas( Book )

17 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 236 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."--Jacket

Omega-6/omega-3 essential fatty acid ratio : the scientific evidence( Book )

11 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Studies on the evolutionary aspects of diet and molecular studies included in this volume indicate that human beings evolved on a diet that was balanced in the essential fatty acids (EFA). In fact, the ratio of omega-6/omega-3 EFA was 1/1 whereas present day diets in both developed and developing countries have a much higher ratio, between 5/1 and 50/1. Additional studies show that a high ratio of omega-6/omega-3 EFA is detrimental to health and may lead to the development of chronic diseases. Improving the dietary ratio by decreasing the omega-6 fatty acids and increasing the omega-3 fatty acids is essential for brain function and for the management of cardiovascular disease, arthritis and cancer. A ratio of 4/1 or less leads to lower dosage and to the reduction of adverse effects of drugs.This volume should be of interest to a large and varied audience of researchers in academia, industry, and government; cardiologists, geneticists, immunologists, neuroscientists, and cancer specialists; as well as nutritionists, dietitians, food scientists, agriculturists, economists and regulators." -- Prové de l'editor
