RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 819941603 LA English T1 Nutrition in the prevention and treatment of disease A1 Coulston, Ann M., Boushey, Carol., Ferruzzi, Mario G., PB Elsevier/Academic PP Oxford; New York YR 2013 SN 9780123918840 0123918847 AB Expertly edited, the Second Edition of "Nutrition in the Prevention and Treatment of Disease" offers 4 completely new chapters and all chapters have been completely updated. Given its unique focus and extensive coverage of clinical applications and disease prevention, this edition is organized for easy integration into advanced upper-division or graduate nutrition curriculums. Foundation chapters on nutrition research methodology and application clearly link the contributions of basic science to applied nutrition research and, in turn, to research-based patient care guidelines. Readers will learn to integrate basic principles and concepts across disciplines and areas of research and practice as well as how to apply this knowledge in new creative ways. Chapters on specific nutrients and health cover topics where data are just beginning to be identified, such as choline, antioxidants, nutrition and cognition, and eye disease. Established areas of chronic disease: obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, gastrointestinal disease, and bone health are presented each in their own sections, which aim to demonstrate the inter-action of basic science, genetics, applied nutrition research, and research-based patient care guidelines. No other nutrition book on the market takes this approach. Students will take away foundational insights into the application of nutrition research in the prevention and treatment of disease. Busy researchers and clinicians will use this book as a "referesher course" and should feel confident in making patient care recommendations based on solid current research findings. New to this edition: all chapters have been completely updated; 26 new authors and co-authors; 4 completely new chapters: Surgery for Severe Obesity; Snacking and Energy Balance in Humans; Phytochemicals in the Prevention and Treatment of Obesity and Its Related Cancers; Bioavailability and Metabolism of Bioactive Compounds from Foods; New section on Dietary Bioactive Compounds for Health explores bioactive components present in edible plants of particular interest for the prevention of disease; New to the obesity section is a chapter on the management of patients who have undergone surgical treatment for obesity; Greatly expanded coverage of biomarkers used to monitor nutrition interventions; and Updated appendices include the latest dietary reference intakes. Key Features: unique focus and extensive coverage of clinical applications and disease prevention; clearly links the contributions of basic science to applied nutrition research and, in turn, to research-based patient care guidelines; and assimilates a large body of research and applications and serves as a "refresher course" for busy researchers and clinicians.
