Nutritional Toxicology

Frank N. Kotsonis, Jerry J. Hjelle
e altri

editore: Informa Healthcare

pagine: 472

Nutrients are gaining recognition for their role in protecting against the toxic effects of free radicals, alcohol and other substances. At the same time, advances in food technology, the appearance of novel foods and new ingredients have generated new toxicological issues and forced health and safety professionals to develop new and more reliable methods to assess their impact on our health. These issues are at the heart of the second edition of Nutritional Toxicology. The book discusses the role of nutrients in protecting the body against toxicants. It explores the overall importance of the metabolism of xenobiotics and antioxidant nutrients in their increasingly important role in protecting against oxidative damage generated by free radicals. The book also discusses components of the diet that can influence metabolism of drugs, how alcohol consumption affects nutritional status, and conversely, how nutritional status affects alcohol metabolism. The effect of age on the body's ability to metabolize drugs and toxicants is discussed in detail.

This comprehensive reference integrates basic principles and concepts across disciplines and areas of research and practice, while detailing how to apply this knowledge in new creative ways. "Nutrition in the Prevention and Treatment of Disease" is an essential part of the tool chest for clinical nutritionists, physicians, nurse practitioners, and dieticians in this new era of practice.

La nutriterapia. Gli alimenti e il nutrimento medicamentoso

Michel Massol

editore: Armando Editore

pagine: 140

Curarsi "a tavola", ovvero sfruttare le proprietà terapeutiche degli alimenti, è una pratica antica e modernissima allo stesso tempo: ciò che i nostri antenati hanno intuito o dedotto in secoli di osservazioni più o meno casuali viene ora confermato o smentito da attente e complesse ricerche scientifiche. Ed è così che dopo decenni di oblio, anni in cui al termine "alternativo" veniva sempre attribuito un alone di inaffidabilità e vago ribellismo, a quella farmacologica tornano ad affiancarsi a pieno titolo altre prassi terapeutiche, come la nutriterapia. Il volume passa in rassegna tutti gli ambiti medici in cui la nutriterapia ha dimostrato la propria efficacia.

Advanced Human Nutrition

Denis M. Medeiros, Robert E. C. Wildman

editore: CRC Press Inc

pagine: 608

This text begins with an in-depth overview into the human organism at the molecular, cellular, tissue and organ levels, and develops into a discussion of the objectives and features of organ systems of the evolved human. The book also covers the relationship between the human body and the environment in which it exists including other organisms that co-habitate the environment. Discussions of the nature of other organisms such as various animals, plants, and micro-organisms makes later information about food science, nutrient density in various food sources, and nutraceuticals easier to comprehend. Advanced Human Nutrition examines human nutrient requirements, the basis for RDA and other recommendations; human nutrition, digestion, and absorption with relation to organs, exocrine and endocrine functions, histology, and absorptive activities; macronutrients and micronutrients; eicosanoid chemistry and function, and more. The present and future of nutrition research is examined, including everything from the HANES studies to electron microscopy and molecular biology. Features *
