This comprehensive handbook is a "one-stop-shop" for all researchers involved in the field of alcohol-related harm at the whole body or cellular level. Over 100 chapters provide abundant information of a wide range of topics that extend from the evolutionary aspects of alcohol consumption and the prevalence of alcohol misuse to programmed cell death. Each chapter is highly illustrated with tables and figures making this a valuable reference for students, clinicians and researchers alike.
The third edition provides many more terms than were provided in the earlier editions. A web address has been included to give the reader access to the extensive Tables of Food Composition maintained by USDA. In addition, a web address for Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs) has been included to again provide the most current recommendations for nutrient intakes. As the information base expands with respect to nutrient use and need, the DRIs are changed to reflect this newer knowledge. The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) Table found in the first edition has been omitted, as have the many tables of food composition. Included in this edition are the many drugs that are used to manage nutrition-related conditions. Cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and so forth are diseases that, while incurable, are manageable. The drugs included in this book are listed as generic compounds along with their trade names. Not all drugs have been included. Omitted are the drugs used to manage mental illness, drugs used as anticancer medications, anti-AIDS drugs, and drugs used for Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, and other diseases.
A new organization-by body region, rather than by organ system-parallels the way physicians approach patients. A new clinical emphasis ensures relevance to everyday practice. Updates reflect the very latest understanding of the pelvic floor · the inner ear · the peritoneum · preimplantation embryology · assisted fertilization · smooth and cardiac muscle · wrist kinematics and kinetics · the temporomandibular joint · blood supply to the muscles and skin · topographical, clinico-pathological, and functional anatomy · cross-sectional and endoscopic imaging · the spread of infection along fascial planes · anatomical landmarks that facilitate differential diagnosis · key anatomical variants throughout the body · and many other crucial areas. Almost 400 new illustrations nearly 2,000 in all, over half of them in full color-depict all structures with optimal clarity, includ¬ing surface anatomy, radiologic anatomy, and microanatomy.
Beginning with an overview of food and food constituents, the book outlines current nutrient analysis systems, techniques for data analysis, and food labeling. The book reviews nutrition science including terminology, biochemistry, nutrient-nutrient interactions, and comparative nutrition. There is a detailed assessment in section three on nutritional needs throughout the lifecycle. It highlights exercise and the value of vegetarian diets in health promotion and disease prevention. Section four considers issues surrounding nutritional assessment, screening, and monitoring tools including questionnaires, and anthropometric-, psychological-, and energy-assessments.
Helps you to visually grasp and focus on the most relevant clinical implications of anatomical concepts. This book presents an introduction to basic and clinical anatomy as well as a fast review source.
