The improvement of life expectancy and quality is a primary goal of modern societies in both developed and developing countries. However, according to the World Health Organization, the global burden of diseases were estimated to be more than 2.74 billion DALYs with about 56.00 million global total deaths in 2012. In 2030, the projected global burden of diseases and global total deaths are similar to or even higher than that in 2012. What are the causes of DALYs and deaths? What proportion do the causes contribute to global DALYs and deaths? Are global DALYs and deaths preventable? Are daily diets associated with global DALYs or deaths? What is the significance of diets contributing to global DALYs or deaths? Answers to these questions should be vital for the prevention and reduction of global DALYs and deaths. Over 90% of causes contributing to the global total DALYs or deaths are modifiable or causable by daily diets. Therefore, understanding the association of diets with diseases is very necessary for us to reduce the global total DALYs or deaths in the future. Because of vast information about diets and diseases in literature, it is very difficult to fully encompass this data in a single manuscript. This book opts to collect a selected overview of association of diets with some important diseases. This book includes ten chapters. In Chapter One, it is well-researched and subsequently concluded by the authors that diets should be critical factors that can modify or even cause diseases, which significantly contribute to the global burden of diseases or deaths. In Chapter Two, their research, production, applications, regulations and future developments are discussed in detail. In Chapter Three, the evidence from experimental and clinical studies to show the potential effect of polyphenols from tea, coffee and cacao on the prevention of cardiovascular diseases are reviewed. In Chapter Four, the dietary causes of kidney diseases and their prevention by proper diet management are described. In Chapter Five, the dietary risk factors and prevention by proper diets are fully summarised. In Chapter Six, the liver disease risk factors existing in human diets are analysed. In Chapter Seven, the authors discuss how diets can play significant roles in the management or development of liver diseases. In Chapter Eight, the theories related to bone problems with respect to the hypo and hyper conditions of nutrients in relation to bone related problems and proper diet management to prevent them are examined in detail. In Chapter Nine, the association of arthritis and their various forms, causes and symptoms with improper diets and its prevention by diet management are introduced. Finally, in Chapter Ten, the association of diet with overweight individuals, obesity and its prevention by proper diet management are extensively discussed.

Diet plays a crucial role in promoting or preventing a disease. Simply swallowing pills when unwell will not prove as effective if dietary guidelines are ignored. This book lists an array of ailments and conditions, and outlines the right diet that could cure or control these problems. Simply put, over-nutrition, under-nutrition or wrong nutrition must equally be avoided if one wishes to stay slim, trim and fighting fit.

Can food really take the place of medicine? While modern medicine certainly has its place and does more than its fair share of good, there is no denying that many of societya (TM)s most perilous chronic diseases are exacerbated by poor diets. Whereas infectious diseases used to cause the most number of deaths, the impact of chronic diseases now far overshadows that of infectious diseases. Diet plays a significant role in the development of a number of types of chronic disease, such as heart disease, diabetes, and certain types of cancer. This title explores the impact of dietary choices on the prevention, management, and treatment of a number of medical conditions and disease states including cardiovascular disease, diabetes and metabolic stress, critical illness, cancer, and HIV/AIDS. Conditions of the gastrointestinal tract, musculoskeletal disorders, rheumatic disease, anemia, hepatobiliary, gallbladder, pancreatic, and kidney diseases are covered in the subsequent title Diet and Disease II.

Diet books contribute to a $60-billion industry as they speak to the 45 million Americans who diet every year. Yet these books don’t just tell readers what to eat: they offer complete philosophies about who Americans are and how we should live. Diet and the Disease of Civilization interrupts the predictable debate about eating right to ask a hard question: what if it’s not calories—but concepts—that should be counted? Cultural critic Adrienne Rose Bitar reveals how four popular diets retell the “Fall of Man” as the narrative backbone for our national consciousness. Intensifying the moral panic of the obesity epidemic, they depict civilization itself as a disease and offer diet as the one true cure. Bitar reads each diet—the Paleo Diet, the Garden of Eden Diet, the Pacific Island Diet, the detoxification or detox diet—as both myth and manual, a story with side effects shaping social movements, driving industry, and constructing fundamental ideas about sickness and health. Diet and the Disease of Civilization unearths the ways in which diet books are actually utopian manifestos not just for better bodies, but also for a healthier society and a more perfect world.

Research into the role of diet in chronic disease can be difficult to interpret. Seventh-day Adventists and other groups with many vegetarian members are ideal study populations because they have a wide range of dietary habits that adds clarity to research findings. This book analyses the results of such studies, focusing on heart disease and cancer. These studies support the benefits of a vegetarian diet and in addition provide evidence about the effects of individual foods and food groups on disease risk that is relevant to all who are interested in good health. Fraser places the findings in athe broader context of well-designed nutritional studies of the general population.

The word longevity is sometimes used as a synonym for "life expectancy" in demography. Aging is the accumulation of changes in an organism or object over time. Aging in humans refers to a multidimensional process of physical, psychological, and social change. Some dimensions of aging grow and expand over time, while others decline. Reaction time, for example, may slow with age, while knowledge of world events and wisdom may expand. Research shows that even late in life potential exists for physical, mental, and social growth and development. Aging is an important part of all human societies reflecting the biological changes that occur, but also reflecting cultural and societal conventions. Age is usually measured in full years and months for young children. At present, the biological basis of aging is unknown. This new book presents the latest research in this dynamic field.

Scientific evidence accumulated over decades validates the idea that a plant-based dietary pattern, such as the traditional Mediterranean way of eating, promotes health and plays an important role in risk reduction and prevention of several chronic diseases. One of the great advantages of the Mediterranean diet is that it can be easily adopted by other cultures because it is flexible and highly palatable. The Mediterranean Way of Eating: Evidence for Chronic Disease Prevention and Weight Management offers evidence-based information about an enjoyable, healthy way of eating that has stood the test of time, along with practical suggestions for incorporating the Mediterranean diet into your daily life. The first part of the book provides a brief history of the Mediterranean region and its different dietary influences. It discusses shared and unique foods in the coastal regions, and recent influences of processed foods and fast foods. It also presents scientific information on critical nutrients (macronutrients, vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, antioxidants, and fiber) in foods found in the Mediterranean diets, how they function in the body, and why they are essential to health. The authors review the major chronic diseases, including obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and certain cancers, and examine how a Mediterranean-style diet may help reduce risk or prevent these diseases. The second part of the book addresses the protective effects of foods and food components, discussing how Mediterranean diets may confer health benefits for reducing disease risk and managing weight. It examines the evidence-based health benefits for each of the food groups—such as fruits, vegetables, grains, fish, meat, dairy products, plus alcohol—along with suggestions for using the foods as part of a healthy diet. The last part of the book focuses on how to move toward a Mediterranean-style diet in your own life, eating at home or dining out, offering effective strategies for implementing the dietary changes.

The courageous story of how one man found a way to live medication free and healthy with Behcet's disease. In his mid fifties, Helmut Schroeder was diagnosed with Behcet's disease. Behcet's is a multi-symptom disease, painfully disabling and potentially fatal. His physicians told him there is no cure for this disease. Behcet's disease is not contagious and has been classified as a Chronic Disease. A chronic disease is a condition lasting three months or longer. This is by the definition of the U.S. National Center of Health Statistics. Managing it with drugs is the only option recommended by his physicians. He went on those drug treatments for a period of time and had severe allergic reactions from them. Not only did his health not improve, it worsened progressively. Yet his physicians offered no other treatment options. At that point, he realized that he had to find his own answers to his health issues. The only other option was a diet change, but his physicians did not support that idea. Nevertheless, he halted the drug treatments, and stopped eating the Standard American Diet (SAD). His new diet plan is mainly white rice with selected plant-based whole foods. Plant-based diets are recommended by a group of physicians who practice Lifestyle Medicine. With his positive attitude, he researched and found out about most of the foods that caused Behcet's disease. Almost thirty years later, Schroeder is still in good health and remains nearly BD free. He maintains an active lifestyle. This is his story. He describes in his book the trials and errors he encountered. Also how he avoids most of the allergy-causing foods that caused his BD, and how he restored his health. With his life-affirming attitude, he shows you how to become healthier, more positive, and challenge yourself to change.

Beriberi White Rice And Vitamin B

In this comprehensive account of the history and treatment of beriberi, Kenneth Carpenter traces the decades of medical and chemical research that solved the puzzle posed by this mysterious disease. Caused by the lack of a minute quantity of the chemical thiamin, or vitamin B1 in the diet, beriberi is characterized by weakness and loss of feeling in the feet and legs, then swelling from fluid retention, and finally heart failure. Western doctors working in Asia after 1870 saw it as the major disease in native armed forces and prisons. It was at first attributed to miasms (poisonous vapors from damp soil) or to bacterial infections. In Java, chickens fed by chance on white rice lost the use of their legs. On brown rice, where the grain still contained its bran and germ, they remained healthy. Studies in Javanese prisons then showed beriberi also occurring where white (rather than brown) rice was the staple food. Birds were used to assay the potency of fractions extracted from rice bran and, after 20 years, highly active crystals were obtained. In another 10 years their structure was determined and "thiamin" was synthesized. Beriberi is a story of contested knowledge and erratic scientific pathways. It offers a fascinating chronicle of the development of scientific thought, a history that encompasses public health, science, diet, trade, expanding empires, war, and technology. From the preface: This is a medical detective story: beginning with the investigation of a disease that has killed or crippled at least a million people, and then following up clues that ranged much wider. One outcome was the production of a synthetic chemical that we now, nearly all of us, consume in small quantities each day in our food. The detectives had a variety of professions and spoke different languages. Their work ranged from studying the health of laborers in a primitive jungle to the painstaking dissection of individual grains of rice under a microscope. The integrated story of their struggles and successes, culled from old volumes in scattered libraries, forms the subject of this book.

More than half a million people live with multiple sclerosis, yet conventional medicine still has little to offer patients. There is no known cure-and even recent breakthroughs in drug therapy do not work to control many of the symptoms or promise any degree of recovery. But there is an alternative to drugs that can stop and reverse the ravaging symptoms of MS-the MS Recovery Diet. As this book explains, there are five common food triggers that can set off the symptoms of MS-dairy, grains containing glutens, legumes, eggs, and yeast. Yet because MS is such a complex disease, other foods play a role, as culprits or aides. The MS Recovery Diet explains the background, science, and development of this treatment in one source for the first time, and shows readers how to pinpoint their specific problem foods and sensitivities. It also offers more than one hundred simple recipes, as well as strategies to improve digestion, balance the immune system, and repair the body's myelin-crucial steps toward healing the body. Both of the authors, Ann D. Sawyer and Judith E. Bachrach, who had been diagnosed and disabled by multiple sclerosis, have experienced incredible recovery on the diet. Within the first three months on this program, Sawyer was able to stop the disease progression and begin to walk short distances with an even gait. Bachrach, whose health has been declining because of MS for thirty- eight years, regained feeling in her toes in one week and after one year on the diet, has stopped taking all medication. This book shares the treatment plan that has dramatically changed their lives, and the lives of others who have discovered it. With inspiring personal stories throughout, it offers real help- and hope-for sufferers of MS.
