Handbook of eggs in human function Book Review:

Eggs have been used as key part of the human diet for millennia. They contain a great variety of nutrients and material to sustain life and growth. The role of the egg as natural source of vitamins, proteins, fats, and other nutrients, continues to develop. Some nutrients have a controversy in benefits and risks. This controversy is the subject of several chapters in this book. Eggs have been used for decades by pharmaceutical companies as vehicles to grow viruses for vaccines. Currently, eggs are being developed to make antibodies for human use, so-called designer eggs. Eggs can also be used as vehicle to transport vitamins and minerals to humans via nutrient supplemented laying hens. These benefits are subject to commercial expansion, as well as being an active research area. This book, with summary points for each chapter, helps you to understand the role of eggs (including designer eggs) in general nutrition, health promotion and disease. It is aimed at health scientists, nutritionists, dieticians, and food industry groups.

The Low Fat Lie Book Review:

The advice to consume less fat "especially saturated fat" had a profound, adverse impact on public health. Although the percentage of fat in the American diet decreased, the percentage of carbohydrate and total calories increased, and sugar consumption skyrocketed. In The Low-Fat Lie: Rise of Obesity, Diabetes, and Inflammation, Dr. Glen Lawrence describes how the false condemnation of saturated fat arose from a misunderstanding of how our bodies regulate cholesterol. He explains how replacing saturated fat with vegetable oil stoked the fires of inflammation to cause pain and suffering, in addition to aggravating cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. The mainstream health and nutrition authorities have long cautioned against consuming too much sugar because of the risk of tooth decay. However, they refuse to indict sugar for the gross deterioration of the nation's health and continue to blame fat, especially saturated fat. Dr. Lawrence points out that a low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet is not as effective as a low-carbohydrate diet for long-term weight loss, yet the low-fat diet mantra continues to resonate from the halls of the agencies doling out dietary advice. He also describes how sugar consumption produces classic signs of addiction in lab animals, whereas high fat consumption does not. The food and beverage industries take advantage of this phenomenon and use aggressive marketing strategies to get children hooked on sugar at an early age. Understanding how we process what we put into our body can inform our decisions regarding dietary choices and a healthy lifestyle. Consuming more fiber in fruits and vegetables promotes a healthy microbiome, which is critical to overall health. The Low-Fat Lie also discusses: • many ways in which gut microbiota communicate with fat tissue and other organs, including via endocannabinoid signals; • active components of cannabis in the context of inflammation and pain; and • how stress can influence eating patterns, while exercise can help relieve stress and suppress or control detrimental eating behaviors. Dr. Lawrence does not prescribe any specific diet plan. Instead, he aims to enlighten the reader by illustrating the dire consequences of excessively sweetened and highly processed foods.

Biochemistry of Lipids Lipoproteins and Membranes Book Review:

The second edition of this book on lipids, lipoprotein and membrane biochemistry has two major objectives - to provide an advanced textbook for students in these areas of biochemistry, and to summarise the field for scientists pursuing research in these and related fields. Since the first edition of this book was published in 1985 the emphasis on research in the area of lipid and membrane biochemistry has evolved in new directions. Consequently, the second edition has been modified to include four chapters on lipoproteins. Moreover, the other chapters have been extensively updated and revised so that additional material covering the areas of cell signalling by lipids, the assembly of lipids and proteins into membranes, and the increasing use of molecular biological techniques for research in the areas of lipid, lipoprotein and membrane biochemistry have been included. Each chapter of the textbook is written by an expert in the field, but the chapters are not simply reviews of current literature. Rather, they are written as current, readable summaries of these areas of research which should be readily understandable to students and researchers who have a basic knowledge of general biochemistry. The authors were selected for their abilities both as researchers and as communicators. In addition, the editors have carefully coordinated the chapters so that there is little overlap, yet extensive cross-referencing among chapters.

Handbook of dietary and nutritional aspects of human breast milk Book Review:

Breast feeding has a great impact on the growth of infants both physically and psychologically. Human breast milk is beneficial to infant health because it contains the necessary macro- and micro-nutrients for tissue accretion, repair and behavioural developments. The production of milk is a complex biological process and its composition and volume is dependent upon a variety of factors such as the health and dietary status of the mother. Moreover, it is influenced by the different stages and duration of breast feeding. Environmental factors, both global and local, may also alter lactation, milk composition and nutritional value. This handbook provides a unique and complete insight into the dietary and nutritional aspects of human breast milk. For a general understanding an overview is given of breast structure and function and lactation. Nutritional aspects are highlighted in a section on the composition of breast milk, including recent research results on breast milk and growth factors, vitamins, proteins and antigens, amongst others. Finally an analysis of both the beneficial and adverse factors relating to lactation and composition of breast milk are discussed.

Handbook of Human Stress and Immunity Book Review:

In 1964, George Solomon coined the term psychoneuroimmunology. In the intervening 30 years, this term has emerged into a dynamic field of study which investigates the unique interactions between the nervous, endocrine, and immune systems. The Handbook of Human Stress and Immunity is a comprehensive reference for this dynamic new field. Focusing on how stressors impact the central nervous system and the resulting changes in immune responses, the Handbook is the first to describehow stress specifically affects human immune systems. It discusses how stress generally makes people more susceptible to infection, how personal support systems can counteract the physiological effects of stress, and how stress, or lack of stress, affects the aging process. Chapters are authored by the leading names in the field and cover such diseases as autoimmune disease, viral pathogenesis, herpes, HIV, and AIDS.

Dietary Lipids for Healthy Brain Function Book Review:

Our brain is recognized by all specialists as the most complex entity created in nature. Regarding the extraordinary capacities of its functioning, still incompletely known, the control of the brain by our dietary lipids may seem very improbable to many people. Yet, research has shown that an imbalance in the intake of essential fatty acids is related to conditions as prevalent as depression, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Research on psychological disorders including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, autism, aggressiveness and suicidal behavior are discussed in this text. Several neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and multiple sclerosis are also explored. Several observations prove that not only are omega-3 fatty acids actively involved in maintaining the noble functions of our brain, but other lipids, including cholesterol, liposoluble vitamins (A, D and E) and some carotenoids play roles as well and are presented in this book. Dietary Lipids for Healthy Brain Function focuses on this important research for human health. This book brings readers, doctors, dietitians and nutritionists arguments that could improve brain development in young people, prevent many nervous diseases and slow down the age-related decline of higher brain functions. This book provides helpful information to improve health in the young as well in the old, using practical and personalized recommendations for preventing and treating nervous pathologies. Features: • Focuses on the importance of dietary lipids on the proper brain functioning. • Provides relevant references demonstrating the efficiency of dietary lipids to maintain a healthy brain. • Introduces lipid sources and describes their roles by lipid groups in behavior issues and various chronic nervous diseases.
