Nutritionism: The Science and Politics of Dietary Advice (Arts and Traditions of the Table: Perspectives on ...
Gyorgy Scrinis

Columbia University Press, 2013

Popularized by Michael Pollan in his best-selling In Defense of Food , Gyorgy Scrinis's concept of nutritionism refers to the reductive understanding of nutrients as the key indicators of healthy food -- an approach that has dominated nutrition science, dietary advice, and food marketing. Scrinis argues this ideology has narrowed and in some cases distorted our appreciation of food quality, such that even highly processed foods may be ...


Nutritional Genomics: The Impact of Dietary Regulation of Gene Function on Human Disease

CRC Press, 2011

The notion of matching diet with an individual’s genetic makeup is transforming the way the public views nutrition as a means of managing health and preventing disease. To fulfill the promise of nutritional genomics, researchers are beginning to reconcile the diverse properties of dietary factors with our current knowledge of genome structure and gene function. What is emerging is a complex system of interactions that make the human genome ...

Feel Good Nutrigenomics
Dr Amy Yasko

Neurological Research Institute, 2014

We live in a society where we are stressed emotionally, financially, physically and exposed to a range of toxins in our environment. Combining underlying genetic susceptibility with these factors provides all the ingredients for a perfect health storm. By understanding where our weak points are located, or where the accidents are on our particular highway of life, it is possible to bypass those detours, accidents and breakdowns and chart a ...


Enteroimmunology: A Guide to Prevention and Treatment of Chronic Disease
Dr. Charles A Lewis MD

CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, 2013

Over half of the body’s immune cells reside in the mucosal lining of the intestines. These cells, along with other mechanisms, protect the body from parasitic, bacterial, viral and fungal infection. The enteric immune system is highly competent at specifically targeting infectious agents, however, the immune system often also reacts to foods and other antigens presented to it. Enteroimmunology is an emerging field of medicine which elucidates ...

In his newest book, Beneficial Effects of Fish Oil on Human Brain , Dr. Akhlaq A. Farooqui expands on the status and therapeutic importance of ...


Nutrigenomics and Nutrigenetics in Functional Foods and Personalized Nutrition

CRC Press, 2013

While functional foods have become a reasonably well-established concept, personalized nutrition is still treated with skepticism by many. The recognition that people would have different nutrient requirements, or perceive foods in different ways, raises several concerns—some real, some not so real. Nutrigenomics and Nutrigenetics in Functional Foods and Personalized Nutrition addresses what is needed to bring nutrigenomics, nutrigenetics, ...


Foodomics: Advanced Mass Spectrometry in Modern Food Science and Nutrition

Wiley, 2013

The Optimal Health Revolution: How Inflammation Is the Root Cause of the Biggest Killers and How the ...
Duke Johnson

BenBella Books, 2009

Cutting-edge science is coming to a startling realization. The bulk of our most lethal diseases have a common underlying cause: persistent inflammation, an over-active reaction of our natural immune system function resulting in cell and tissue destruction. This persistent inflammation is triggered by our industrial lifestyles, including exposure to chemicals, synthetic food ingredients, pollution and processed foods. “Researchers are linking ...
