Nutrition is of interest to everyone. For the impoverished, nutrition is an issue of
obtaining enough food to survive. For some, it is a health concern in their fight
against obesity and diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, and degenerative skeletal
disorders that accompany this nutritional problem. For others, it is of interest so that
they will not be embarrassed wearing their bathing suits.
Efficacy of SNS in Different Disease States
Efficacy studies have shown that malnourished patients undergoing major thoracoabdominal surgery benefit from SNS. Critical illness requiring ICU care including major burns, major trauma, severe sepsis, closed head injury, and severe pancreatitis [positive CT scan and Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation II (APACHE II) 10] all benefit by early SNS, as indicated by reduced mortality and morbidity. In critical illness, initiation of SNS within 24 h of injury or ICU admission is associated with a ~50% reduction in mortality.
Disease-Specific Nutritional Support
SNS is basically a support therapy and is primary therapy only for the treatment or prevention of malnutrition. Certain conditions require modification of nutritional support because of organ or system impairment. For instance, in nitrogen accumulation disorders, protein intake may need to be reduced. However, in renal disease, except for brief periods of several days, protein intakes should approach requirement levels of at least 0.8 g/kg or higher up to 1.2 g/kg as long as the blood urea nitrogen does not exceed 100 mg/dL.

This book is the second in the series “Nutrition, Brain and Behavior.” The purpose of this series
is to provide a forum whereby basic and clinical scientists can share their knowledge and perspectives
regarding the role of nutrition in brain function and behavior. The breadth and diversity of the topics
covered in this book make it of great interest to specialists working on coffee/caffeine/tea/chocolate
research, to nutritionists and physicians, and to anyone interested in obtaining objective information
on the consequences of the consumption of coffee, tea, and chocolate on the brain.
In the past few years, the word superfruit has blared into the headlines
with alluring fanfare. What began as just a few curious exotic
juices in the American market has now evolved into thousands of products
in a multibillion-dollar global industry. From the start, the superfruit
category has been more about marketing than science. Beverages
made from rare, enchanting fruit species marketed with a message of
antioxidant benefi ts have beckoned consumers with a seductive array of
irresistible health promises....
Gastrointestinal and Liver Disease Up to 90% of pregnant women experience nausea and vomiting during the first trimester of pregnancy. Occasionally, hyperemesis gravidarum requires hospitalization to prevent dehydration, and sometimes parenteral nutrition is required.
Crohn's disease may be associated with exacerbations in the second and third trimesters. Ulcerative colitis is associated with disease exacerbations in the first trimester and during the early postpartum period.
Second, the prospects for major child health reform will diminish as resources
become increasingly scarce.Health care spending that is already hitting the “high-
water mark” of 16 percent of U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) and predictably
increasing in the face of the next wave of genomics-driven technological innova-
tions will be swamped by the approaching “Silver Tsunami.
In Mozambique, Pathfinder is going beyond traditional maternal and child health to ensure
the survival of children into adulthood. In addition to their traditional role distributing family planning
information and products, CHWs have begun distributing water-purification solution and insecticide-treated
bed nets for malaria prevention to pregnant women and mothers of children under five. They are promoting
exclusive breast-feeding to the age of six-months, iron and folate supplements for pregnant women, growth
monitoring, deworming, and proper nutrition.

Increasing farm productivity is generally a precondition to improving food security and
income in rural areas. This can also relieve pressures to expand farming and grazing into ecologically
fragile areas and reduce reliance on unsustainable resource extraction activities. Efforts to raise
agricultural production – by improving crop yields, technology, and access to inputs and markets and
fostering a shift towards higher value crops – are thus often seen as a means of simultaneously
addressing growth, equity and environmental issues in rural areas....
Nutritional counseling and management are becoming important in health care,
particularly in the management of a number of chronic conditions and diseases. The
publication of this book is timely, because it aims to help physicians and their staffs
identify conditions and diseases that can be treated effectively with nutritional
intervention, and provides specifics on appropriate counseling and management.
The first of the 13 chapters discusses nutritional support for children, with
emphasis on premature infants, cystic fibrosis, and bronchopulmonary dysplasia....
Historical records of ancient times reveal that each nation passes
through well-defined dietary stages. When the nation is young and struggling
to develop, the people are generally poor and the diet is frugal,
consisting chiefly of plant foods. As the nation becomes well established
and its people prosper, animal foods become more plentiful. Thus, the
interest in vegetarian dietaries has waxed and waned through the centuries.
Historians have noted that, in times of plenty, interest in such diets has
been low, while during periods of famine, the reverse has been true.
