Book Short Summary:

The Nutrition and Health series has been very fortunate to have each of the volumes recognized by rating services, such as Doody's, as valuable contributions for health professionals and individuals interested in the most up-to-date and balanced information from the experts in nutrition. These independent accolades may have occurred because the Nutrition and Health series has as its overriding mission to provide health profession als with texts that are considered essential because each book includes: (1) a synthesis of the state of the science, (2) timely, in-depth reviews by the leading researchers in their respective fields, (3) extensive, up-to-date fully annotated reference lists, (4) a detailed index, (5) relevant tables and figures, (6) identification of paradigm shifts and the con sequences, (7) virtually no overlap of information between chapters, but targeted, inter chapterreferrals, (8) suggestions of areas for future research, and (9) balanced, data-driven answers to patient questions, which are based upon the totality of evidence rather than the findings of any single study. The series volumes are not the outcome of a symposium. Rather, each editor has the potential to examine a chosen area with a broad perspective, both in subject matter as well as in the choice of chapter authors. The international perspective, especially with regard to public health initiatives, is emphasized where appropriate.

Book Short Summary:

Even as the U.S. population becomes steadily more diverse, minorities and women remain underrepresented in clinical trials to develop new drugs and medical devices. Although progress in increasing minority participation in clinical trials has occurred, participation rates do not fully represent the overall population of minorities in the United States. This underrepresentation threatens the health of both these populations and the general population, since greater minority representation could reveal factors that affect health in all populations. Federal legislation has sought to increase the representation of minorities and women in clinical trials, but legislation by itself has not been sufficient to overcome the many barriers to greater participation. Only much broader changes will bring about the meaningful participation of all population groups in the clinical research needed to improve health. To examine the barriers to participation in clinical trials and ways of overcoming those barriers, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine held a workshop in April 2015. This publication summarizes the presentations and discussions from the workshop.

Book Short Summary:

Vital Signs for Cancer Prevention suggests that cancer is a two-phase process. In Phase One you do not yet have, and may never have, cancer, but predisposing factors—poor diet and digestion, toxins, adrenal exhaustion, and blood sugar imbalances, among others—can progressively and cumulatively increase your likelihood of developing it. Phase Two begins when the first permanent, transformed or cancerous cells form and are not destroyed by your defenses. Understanding that the predisposing factors of the first phase lead toward the second can help you prevent the onset of cancer by correcting or minimizing those that apply to you. Author Xandria Williams takes a natural therapies approach to healing cancer—one based on an understanding of nutrition, herbal medicine, homoeopathy, osteopathy, and energy medicine—rather than one based strictly on medicine, drugs, and surgery. She sees cancer as a problem that affects the whole body, not just the organ or system that is faulty, and thus her recommendations are systemic rather than aimed specifically at the tumor. Her main emphasis is on a series of scientifically validated tests (many of which can be self-administered) she proposes that provide vital information as to the state of your health. She also describes the CA profile, a test that can indicate the presence of permanent cancer cells within the first six weeks and possibly years before a tumor can be detected, allowing a crucial warning and the time to start an effective recovery program. Williams suggests a number of supplements, specific foods, and other remedies (detox procedures, stress reduction) to correct any of the predisposing factors that could, with a final trigger, move you from Phase One to Phase Two of the cancer process. You will learn how to avoid cancer if you have not yet developed it, avoid recurrences if you are in remission, and overcome cancer if you have been diagnosed with it.

Book Short Summary:

This book was written both for survivors and health professionals, some of whom are cancer survivors, too. Our goal is to provide you with a survivor's road map. --Dr. Ernest H. Rosenbaum * More than 30 medical professionals reveal insights on surviving cancer to empower cancer survivors and their caregivers, as well as the doctors who manage their continued care. The CDC's National Action Plan for Cancer Survivorship estimates that there are 9.6 million persons living following a cancer diagnosis. And this number is strictly related to patients. It does not include family members, friends, or caregivers. For anyone approaching life from the perspective of remission, respected oncologist Dr. Ernest Rosenbaum leads a team of 34 oncology specialists and medical contributors--some of whom are both doctors and survivors themselves--in creating a guide specifically geared for cancer survivorship. The growing number of people approaching life post-cancer will find solace, understanding, and opportunity with information specifically geared to managing the lingering effects of cancer treatment, such as: * Lifestyle changes to improve health and longevity * What survivors need to know following anticancer therapy * How to manage the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy * How to set goals for the future
