  • Food intake recommendations
  • New drugs with nutritional applications
  • Novel discoveries of transport and messenger proteins
  • Gene polymorphisms involved in nutritional responses

Food Law for Public Health (Food and Public Health)

By (author): Jennifer L. Pomeranz

Food and its many aspects — production, consumption, marketing, labeling, procurement, safety — have become a mainstay of both popular discourse and the practice of public health. As topics such as GMO labeling, food-borne illness outbreaks, soda bans, and food taxes have come to the forefront of the public and academic conscious, understanding the legal underpinnings of these issues is vital.

Food Law for Public Health is the first book on food law written specifically for a public health audience without a legal background. It offers comprehensive coverage of every aspect of food law:

· Established and newer food law issues in the United States
· Overview of US law, plus federal, state, and local governments’ authorities and limitations to address food for public health
· Controversial topics related to food marketing, food labeling, and the various regulatory concerns over food safety
· Federal nutrition programs and guidelines
· Litigation among the food industry, consumers, and the government

Food Law for Public Health offers necessary grounding in food law for audiences in public health, nutrition, food studies, policy, or anyone with a professional interest in this increasingly important area. With clear writing and thought-provoking questions and exercises for classroom discussion, it is an ideal tool for learning and teaching.

Setting Nutritional Standards: Theory, Policies, Practices (Rochester Studies in Medical History)

By (author): Elizabeth Neswald, David F. Smith, Ulrike Thoms

In the second half of the nineteenth century, ways of thinking about food changed as chemists and physiologists identified nutrients and bodily needs and as urbanization, industrialization, and colonial encounters challenged traditional dietary customs and assumptions. Emerging as a reaction to concerns about industrial and military power, social welfare, and public health, the science of nutrition sought to define the norms and needs of variable human bodies, setting standards for bodies and foods that would enable physicians and politicians to develop nutrition recommendations and food policies for individuals and populations. Setting Nutritional Standards brings together authors from a variety of scientific and historical disciplines to explore perspectives on the theory, practices, and policies of modern nutrition science from the 1860s to the 1960s. The essays place the new science of nutrition within the changing social landscapes of Western Europe and the United States at the intersection of medicine, policy, social reform agendas, and public health initiatives.

Nutrition and Growth: Yearbook 2017 (World Review of Nutrition and Dietetics, Vol. 116)

Adequate nutrition is a crucial component for child growth. Under- or malnutrition may not only affect present and future growth, but also a child’s ability to develop skills. Tremendous efforts are being made to try and understand the mechanisms leading to stunted growth, proper diet composition, and an appropriate rehabilitation diet for children suffering from under- or malnutrition in all age groups during the growth period. In this publication, specialists in nutrition and growth present some of the best studies from peer-reviewed journals published between July 2015 and June 2016. Each paper is briefly summarized and supplemented with editorial comments which evaluate the clinical importance of each article and discuss its application. This ‘Yearbook’ is an important tool for practicing physicians, including pediatricians, subspecialists in pediatric gastroenterology, metabolism and nutrition, and endocrinology. Nutritionists and dieticians, as well as other health professionals involved in the care of children, will also find this to be a useful resource.

Dietary Supplements and Health (Novartis Foundation Symposia)

Dietary supplements can contain a wide variety of ingredients, either singly or in combination, including nutrients, botanicals and ‘bioactive components’ commonly found in foods. They are marketed and used by consumers for a range of reasons: to enhance “well-being”, as traditional medicines, for health promotion or disease risk reduction, and as alternatives or complements to conventional drug therapies.

On a global basis, the dietary supplement industry has enjoyed rapid growth, becoming a multi-billion dollar enterprise over the last 10 years. This growth has been associated with significant changes in both the types of products available and the reasons for using these products.

In many cases, these changes have occurred without the benefit of a sound scientific basis for evaluating the safety and efficacy of these products under the new conditions of use and frequently the same limited scientific evidence is used, even though current product composition, user populations, purported beneficial effects, and conditions of use may differ significantly from the available evidence or historical usage.

This book presents systematic examinations of the scientific data that are available and/or needed to substantiate and evaluate the safety and efficacy of dietary supplements. A series of case studies that are illustrative of the types of scientific challenges that have been encountered in substantiating safety and efficacy for various product types are employed to point out some of the successes but also frustrations that have occurred in recent years. Discussions among presenters and participants identify the lessons learned from these experiences and formulate ideas for improved approaches to identifying research needs and for enhancing the quality and relevance of the scientific evidence available for policy decisions.

Dietary Supplements and Health constitutes a useful resource for nutritionists, biochemists, public health researchers and anyone interested in herbal, alternative medicines.
