Diet, nutrition, and health by K. K Carroll( )

21 editions published between 1989 and 2014 in English and held by 1,620 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( )

17 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and held by 1,590 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

Palm oil tocotrienols and plant flavonoids act synergistically with each other and with Tamoxifen in inhibiting proliferation and growth of estrogen receptor-negative MDA-MB-435 and - positive MCF-7 human breast cancer cells in culture by N Guthrie( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Experiments in our laboratory have shown that tocotrienols inhibit proliferation and growth of both MDA-MB-435 and MCF-7 cells in culture much more effectively than a-tocopherol. In addition, it was found that combinations of tocotrienols with Tamoxifen, a drug widely used for treatment of breast cancer, inhibit these cells more effectively than either tocotrienols or Tamoxifen alone
Palm oil tocotrienols and plant flavonoids act synergistically with each other and with tamoxifen in inhibiting proliferation and growth of estrogen-negative MDA-MB-435 and -positive MCF-7 human breast cancer cells in culture by N Guthrie( )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The present studies have noe shown synergistic effects between tocotrienols and a number of other flavonoids from various plant sources, including citrus fruits, in the inhibitation of both MDA_MB-435 and MCF-7 cells (IC50s 0.05-25 & 0.02-5 g/mL respectively). In the MCF-7 cells, 1:1:1 combinations of tocotrienols, flavonoids and tamoxifen were even more effective, with the best combination being -tocotrienol, hesperetin and tamoxifen (IC50 0.0005 g/mL). These results suggest that diets containing palm oil may reduce the risk of breast cancer, particularly when eaten with other plant foods containing flavonoids, any may also enhance the effectiveness of tamoxifen for treatment of breast cancer.
