  • T he science of human nutrition and its applications to health promotion continue to gain momentum. In the relatively short time since the release of the first edition of this Encyclopedia, a few landmark discoveries have had a dramatic multiplying effect over nutrition science: the mapping of the human genome, the links between molecular bioenergetics and lifespan, the influence of nutrients on viral mutation, to name a few.

  • 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....

  • Plant response to reduced water availability and other abiotic stress (e.g. metals) have been analysed through changes in water absorption and transport mechanisms and also by molecular and genetic approach. A relatively new aspects of fruit nutrition are presented in order to provide the basis for the improvement of some fruit quality traits. The involvement of hormones, nutritional and proteomic plant profiles together with some structure/function of sexual components have also been addressed.

  • THE PRINCIPAL purpose of the fourth edition is to update the material - including the statistics - of the third edition, while maintaining an emphasis on nutrition and, in particular, the effects of processing on the nutritive value of the products as compared with that of the raw cereals. However, some new material has been introduced, notably sections dealing with extrusion cooking and the use of cereals for animal feed, and the section on industrial uses for cereals has been considerably enlarged....

  • Ruminant animals have evolved a capacious set of stomachs that harbour microorganisms capable of digesting fibrous materials, such as cellulose. This allows ruminants to eat and partly digest plants, such as grass, which have a high fibre content and low nutritional value for simple-stomached animals....

  • Plants are sessile organisms and as such must have mechanisms to deal with both abiotic and biotic stresses to ensure survival. The term “abiotic stress” includes many stresses caused by environmental conditions such as drought, salinity, UV and extreme temperatures. Due to global climate change it is predicted that abiotic stresses will increase in the near future and have substantial impacts on crop yields (Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change; http://www.ipcc.ch).

  • Beer has been a popular beverage for thousands of years and brewing is often described as the oldest biotechnological process. Over the years the brewmaster’s art has been supplemented by vast increases in our knowledge of the chemistry and biochemistry both of the ingredients and of the changes taking place to those ingredients during brewing. Together these contribute to give the products we recognise today - a wide range of different but consistently high quality beer types.

  • Nutrition is an important lifestyle factor that contributes to our general feeling well. Recently, it has even further suggested, based on a number of epidemiological studies, that our diet is also associated with the risk of developing a number of chronic diseases, such as diabetes type II, cardiovascular diseases, osteoporosis, many types of cancer, just to name few. Thus, a balanced nutrition is firmly interwoven with many aspects of our long-term health, including the prevention of diseases, albeit this is typically rather associated with the medicinal areas.

  • NICE OR NASTY is an entertaining and informative book with a readable approach to a topic that is extremely important to all societies, namely food choice, in relation to its regulation by law, custom and beliefs, and its health and disease aspects. The focus is on South East Asia with its half a billion people and diverse food choice. Written by two experts with many years of experience in teaching and research in biomedicine, this book represents a synthesis of the seemingly diverse areas of nutrition, biomedicine, law and geography.

  • Ruminants, like other animals, have to meet the nutritional demands of the many organs and cell types of the body. This has to be done against a background of a varying, and not always adequate, supply of nutrients. Thus, once absorbed there are a number of potential fates for a given nutrient and a plethora of mechanisms ...

  • The Hypothalamushypophysis- gonadal (HPG) axis is subject to both positive feed-forward and negative feedback regulation at several levels. At the level of the hypothalamus, early recognition of the pulsatile nature of gonadotropin releasing hormone secretion led to the notion of a central ‘‘pulse generator”, the inherent oscillatory activity of which controls the secretory rhythm of GnRH neurons (Knobil, 1980).

  • Locked into an eighty-year-old model that prescribes central planning for every aspect of the U.S. health system, America’s system of delivering health care has lost sight of the important role that consumers play in controlling health system costs and quality. Real world experiments suggest that people who pay for their own care cut utiliza- tion by 10% to 30% with no discernable effect on health. Saving even 10% of Wisconsin’s 2002-2003 health care spending would have saved $260 million.

  • Using the gradient method, element concentrations within the lichen are usually observed to increase as the distance to the suspected source decreases. Gough and Erdman (1977) used linear regression to evaluate the relationship between distance from a coal fired power plant and metal levels in Xanthoparmelia chlorochroa. However, as Puckett (1988) points out, concentrations of many elements will not reach zero at large distances from pollution sources because they have essential nutritional roles or are normal components of the lichen when growing in its natural environment.

  • This study has also consulted other documents published elsewhere, such as Sarma (1986) and Mink (1987). Sarma (1986), a Research Report published by IFPRI (Washington), is concerned with the analysis and projections (to 2000) of use of cereals for livestock feed in developing countries. Mink (1987) has addressed the use of corn in livestock feed and the future of the corn economy in Indonesia. The study focussed on current levels of corn use and likely future growth of corn-based livestock feeds in Indonesia.

  • In this report, only GHGEs have been addressed but other environmental, social and ethical aspects of sustainability could be included in future to explore wider impacts, as well as identifying any possible unintended consequences of changing the diet. This project should be viewed as a first step towards developing a diet that meets both dietary recommendations and GHGE targets, which has been shown to be possible.

  • Operating theatres are frightening places, a foreign environment where highly specialized techniques that involve opening and invading a human body take place. As such, they present unique challenges for both those who use them, and those who work there. For children who require surgery and their families, the surgical environment is potentially one in which consideration must be given to the whole psychosocial aspect of care, even more so than in any other hospital environment.

  • In India, Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD) research started in the then Imperial Bacteriological Laboratory at Mukteswar as early as in 1929. The work on the production of vaccines using cell culture technique commenced at Mukteswar in early sixties initially in goat kidney/calf kidney cell cultures and subsequently by 1971-72 with the availability of the BHK 21 cell line in monolayer cultures. With the increased demand for the FMD vaccines, the Bangalore campus of IVRI was established in 1972 with the objective of large scale production in fermenters.
