Book Description :

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.

Book Description :

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.

Nutritional biochemistry is one of the academic foundations that make up nutritional sciences, a discipline that encompasses the knowledge of nutrients and other food components with emphasis on their range of function and influence on mammalian physiology, health, and behaviour. This book introduces recent findings concerning the biochemical and molecular actions of food factors on bone metabolism in vitro and their preventive effects on osteoporosis in animals in vivo and human subjects. The extraction methods applied in food processing are also examined, from fundamental theory to optimum practical application through using the relevant equipment, solvents, and the appropriate methods of process optimisation. Discussed also is the nutritional value of the proteins and lipids recovered with isoelectric processing and their potential use in food products for human consumption as well as animal feeds. Additionally, other chapters in this book review various extracts and secondary metabolites from foods of plant origin with no inhibitory activity that can be focused for drug development programs.

Scientists in lipid biochemistry research have increasingly recognized the role of lipids as signaling molecules, aside from their importance in forming cellular membranes and storing energy. This book provides the latest findings on a wide variety of complex lipids in cells that function either as intracellular or intercellular messengers. International investigators present current data on the most extensively studied examples of both intracellular and intercellular messengers generated from lipids, and describe their basic mechanisms, which also utilize receptors in the G-protein-coupled family. The in-depth discussions address such topics as lipid signaling for protein kinase C activation, phosphatidic acid and lyso-phosphatidic acid, ceramide as a messenger, bioactive properties of Sphingosine and structurally related compounds, platelet-activating factor and PAF-like mimetics, and prostaglandins and related compounds. Lipid Second Messengers is an up-to-date reference on developments in the expanding field of lipid-derived signals and will be of interest to biochemists, physiologists, pharmacologists, geneticists, and biologists.

Book Description :

The handbook of cholesterol - biology, function and role in health and disease - gathers a substantial set of contributions supporting the modern view that dietary and blood cholesterols are safe or even beneficial in a balanced omega-6/3 fatty acids environment, whereas they may turn into unsafe or detrimental to health in a typical omega-6 fatty acid environment. Dietary and blood cholesterols, including LDL-cholesterol, are secondary risk factors which belong to the human omnivorous diet and physiology, which may represent clinical valid surrogates of the outcome, cardiovascular diseases. However, the primary risk factors, the omega-6/3 fatty acids, determine whether human health is in the safe evolutionary zone or not. Omega-6/3 fatty acids are essential to human physiology. They must be present and maintained in physiologically-defined essential amounts and balanced in blood and tissue lipid pools, through the diet. Chronic deviations from omega-6/3 fatty acids make LDL-cholesterol valid indicators of cardiovascular disease. The handbook takes preventive and acute approaches, based on biochemical and clinical evidence, to the management of cholesterol - a per se non-essential nutrient, yet an essential blood and tissue component. The reviews, especially when combined, will help understand the essentiality of dietary and blood cholesterol as (risk) factors in human health.
