Child Nutrition in South East Asia


Child Nutrition in South East Asia


$349


Exactly 25 years after the first Nutricia Symposium was held in Groningen, the Netherlands, dealing with fundamental aspects of neonatology, the 8th Nutricia Symposium was held at nearly the opposite end of the globe and dealt with a number of most important aspects of child nutrition in South East Asia. It was the intention of this symposium to bring together a respectable number of specialists in this field from the countries involved, complemented by a number of experts from outside the area chosen because of their recognised contributions to the main topics of the symposium. In this way, a platform for discussion and cooperation was provided to bring the specific problems of child nutrition in South East Asia closer to a solution. From the contents of the papers and also the valuable discus­ sions, it should be clear to the reader that the goal of this symposium has been attained. It would have been difficult to find a place which was better suited for this symposium than Yogyakarta, Indonesia. The excellent work done by the several local committees in organising this symposium is greatly acknowledged, especially the efforts of Prof. H. Iskandar Wahidiyat, Prof. Darwin Karyadi, Prof. I.G.N. Gde Ranuh, Prof. Moelyono S. Trastotenoyo, Prof. S.H. Pudjiadi, Dr. Samsudin, Dr. Suharyono, Dr. Yati Sunarto and Dr. A.G. Soemantri need to be mentioned.

Better Breastfeeding: A Mother’s Guide to Feeding and Nutrition


$3.95


"The American Academy of Pediatrics currently recommends that: "Breastfeeding should be continued for at least the first year of life and beyond for as long as mutually desired by mother and child."" – La Leche League International There are many benefits to breastfeeding, which range from protecting the baby from illness through antibodies to providing comfort and security. There are also a myriad of benefits for the mother, which include everything from the special bonding that takes place to reduced rates of breast and ovarian cancer. Despite a mother’s best intentions, breastfeeding can prove to be challenging for both new and experienced mothers. And because many hospitals have reduced or eliminated programs on lactation, many mothers are often left relying on the advice of friends, family or a much too busy obstetrician or pediatrician. In a friendly, informative and easy-to-read manner, Better Breastfeeding addresses the concerns, problems and issues breastfeeding mothers face and answers the most commonly asked questions. Some of the issues that are addressed include: Knowing if the baby is getting enough milk Plugged ducts and breast infection Nursing strike, thrush, and twins or multiples Challenges of latching Sore nipples and engorgement Going back to work. The authors also provide 125 recipes for the breastfeeding mother that serve her unique needs and, ultimately, those of her baby. There is also some research which indicates that a child’s taste preferences are influenced by what a mother eats during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Since the flavor of breast milk changes according to the mother’s diet, it influences the types of foods the baby is willing to accept and enjoy during weaning to solid foods.

What Can We Learn from Nutrition Impact Evaluations?: Lessons from a Review of Interventions to Reduce Child Malnutrition in Devel


What Can We Learn from Nutrition Impact Evaluations?: Lessons from a Review of Interventions to Reduce Child Malnutrition in Devel


$19.43


Evaluation SummaryWhat Can We Learn from Nutrition Impact Evaluations?High levels of child malnutrition in developing countries contribute to mortality and have long-term consequences for children ‘s cognitive development and earnings as adults. Recent impact evaluations show that many different interventions have had an impact on children ‘s anthropometric outcomes (height, weight, and birth weight), but there is no simple answer to the question What works to address the problem. Similar interventions have widely different results in different settings, owing to differences in local context, the causes and severity of malnutrition, and the capacity for program implementation. Impact evaluations of programs supported by the Bank, which are generally large-scale, complex inter-ventions in low-capacity settings, show equally variable results. The findings confirm that it should not be assumed that an intervention found effective in a randomized medical setting will have the same effects when implemented under field conditions. There are many robust experimental and quasi-experimental methods for assessing impact under difficult circumstances often found in field settings.The relevance and impact of nutrition impact evaluations could be enhanced by collecting data on service delivery, demand-side behavioral outcomes, and implementation processes to better understand the causal chain and what part of the chain is weak, in parallel with impact evaluations. It is also important to understand better the distribution of impacts, particularly among the poor, and to document better the costs and effectiveness of interventions.High levels of child malnutrition in developing countries are contributing to mortality and present long-term consequences for the survivors. An estimated 178 million children under age 5 in developing countries are stunted (low height for age) and 55 million are wasted (low weight for height). Malnutrition makes children more susceptible to illness and strongly affects child mortality. Beyond the mortality risk in the short run, the developmental delays caused by undernutrition affect children ‘s cognitive outcomes and productive potential as adults. Micronutrient deficiencies vitamin A, iron, zinc, iodine, for example are also common and have significant consequences. Progress in reducing malnutrition has been slow: More than half of countries are not on track to achieve the Millennium Development Goal of halving the share of children who are malnou-rished (low weight for age) by 2015. The food price and financial crises are making achievement of this goal even more elusive. The World Bank has recently taken steps to ex-pand its support for nutrition in response to the underlying need and the increased urgency due to the crises. WHAT DO WE KNOW ABOUT REDUCING MALNUTRITION?The increased interest and resources focused on the problem of high and potentially increasing rates of undernutrition raises the question, what do we know about t

Repositioning Nutrition as Central to Development: A Strategy for Large-Scale Action


$3.95


Persistent malnutrition is contributing not only to widespread failure to meet the first MDG to halve poverty and hunger but to meet other goals in maternal and child health, HIV/AIDS, education, and gender equity. The choice is now between continuing to fail, or to finally make nutrition central to development. Underweight prevalence among children is the key indicator for measuring progress on non-income poverty and malnutrition remains the world’s most serious health problem and the single biggest contributor to child mortality. Nearly a third of children in the developing world are either underweight or stunted, and more than 30 percent of the developing world’s population suffers from micronutrient deficiencies. There are also new dimensions to malnutrition. The epidemic of obesity and diet-related noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) is spreading to the developing world and malnutrition is also linked to the growing HIV/AIDS pandemic.This report makes the case for development partners and developing countries to focus on nutrition, and to fund nutrition investments much more heavily than has been the case in the past. This case is based on evidence that such programs are excellent economic investments and essential for faster progress in reducing poverty; and on program experience showing that they can improve nutrition much faster than relying on economic growth alone. The report sets out a global strategy for stepped-up action in nutrition, for discussion in the international development community.

Food Politics: How the Food Industry Influences Nutrition and Health


Food Politics: How the Food Industry Influences Nutrition and Health


$3.95


We all witness, in advertising and on supermarket shelves, the fierce competition for our food dollars. In this engrossing expose, Marion Nestle goes behind the scenes to reveal how the competition really works and how it affects our health. The abundance of food in the United States–enough calories to meet the needs of every man, woman, and child twice over–has a downside. Our overefficient food industry must do everything possible to persuade people to eat "more"–more food, more often, and in larger portions–no matter what it does to waistlines or well-being. Like manufacturing cigarettes or building weapons, making food is very big business. Food companies in 2000 generated nearly $900 billion in sales. They have stakeholders to please, shareholders to satisfy, and government regulations to deal with. It is nevertheless shocking to learn precisely how food companies lobby officials, co-opt experts, and expand sales by marketing to children, members of minority groups, and people in developing countries. We learn that the food industry plays politics as well as or better than other industries, not least because so much of its activity takes place outside the public view. Editor of the 1988 "Surgeon General’s Report on Nutrition and Health, "Nestle is uniquely qualified to lead us through the maze of food industry interests and influences. She vividly illustrates food politics in action: watered-down government dietary advice, schools pushing soft drinks, diet supplements promoted as if they were First Amendment rights. When it comes to the mass production and consumption of food, strategic decisions are driven by economics–not science, not common sense, and certainly not health. No wonder most of us are thoroughly confused about what to eat to stay healthy. An accessible and balanced account, "Food Politics "will forever change the way we respond to food industry marketing practices. By explaining how much the food industry influences government nutrition policies and how cleverly it links its interests to those of nutrition experts, this pathbreaking book helps us understand more clearly than ever before what we eat and why.

Elder Nutrition


Elder Nutrition


$37.31


"ELDER NUTRITION" The senior years can be very active and fulfilling years. However, the majority of people over age 70 years are deficient in many nutrients. Experience and research have shown that many of the chronic health problems of elders are due less to the aging process itself than to the malnutrition which occurs in a majority of seniors. Elder Nutrition will show how seniors can achieve excellent health and an active lifestyle through proper nutrition, exercise, sleep, social support and a positive mental attitude. Better nutrition can prevent or at least alleviate many common health problems such as muscle and bone loss, infection, heart disease, strokes, cancer, vision problems, depression, dementia, diabetes, chronic fatigue, arthritis and kidney failure. This book is backed by hundreds of published research studies and by Dr. Curtis’ extensive experience in treating nutritional problems of elders. "

Parenteral Nutrition


Parenteral Nutrition


$69.95


Nearly all medical specialities treat patients whose illnesses necessitate a means of nutrition which bypasses the gastrointestinal tract. Parenteral nutrition consequent­ ly means the administration of nutrient and building materials in qualitatively utilizable form and in quantitatively adequate amount by the intravenous route. This guarantees the requirements for energy and building materials under a variety of conditions, and compensates for any losses that might occur. The basis for any parenteral nutrition is the knowledge of the biochemical processes of intermediary metabolism under physiological and pathophysiological conditions (e. g. , starvation, post-stress metabolism, hypoxia, microcirculatory disturbances, etc. ). Only taken in these contexts can nutrient and bodybuilding sub­ stances be combined, measured out, and administered in such a way as to be definitively useful to the body. Research into the biochemistry and the patho­ biochemistry of intermediary metabolism has demonstrated possibilities, by means of which we may be able to ‘outwit’ (to some extent) disturbances in utilization of certain nutrients under defined pathologic conditions. If the body receives and transforms substrate-precursors (e. g. , sorbitol), it can maintain an adequate level of nutrient and life-support substances; this slow rate of transformation to the substrate makes allowance for the limited utilization capacity, and covers the needs of the body by roundabout means. Some of the problems can now be considered solved, but a great many are still in the very early stages of elucidation, or await basic research.

The Science of Nutrition offers a rigorous, science-based approach to nutrition that capitalizes on readers’ natural interest in nutrition by demonstrating how nutrition relates to their own health. The text uses an applied approach to vitamins and minerals, organizing them based on their functions and effects on the body. This applied approach is evident in the functional organization of the micronutrient (vitamin and mineral) chapters. Rather than requiring readers to memorize all the vitamins and minerals and their characteristics, the authors present them based on their functions (like fluid and electrolyte balance, antioxidant function, bone health, energy metabolism, immunity, and blood health) so that readers can understand their effects on the body. This approach also allows for going into greater depth on processes like energy and metabolism, fluid and electrolyte balance, antioxidants, blood health, bone health, and how micronutrients work in each of these functions.

Vegetarian Nutrition


Vegetarian Nutrition


$140.18


Approximately 12 million U.S. citizens consider themselves vegetarians, and 13.5 percent of all U.S. households claim to have at least one family member practicing some form of vegetarianism. In the past 30 years, scientific endeavors in the area of vegetarian nutrition have progressively shifted from investigating dietary concerns held by nutritionists and other health professionals to creative solutions for various medical conditions and preventive approaches to chronic diseases. Although professional interest in vegetarian nutrition has now reached unprecedented levels, scientific knowledge regarding vegetarian diets and their positive effects on human health is far from complete. Vegetarian Nutrition provides data to explain the preventive role of vegetarian diets for many chronic diseases such as heart disease and some types of cancers while including recommendations and guidelines for vegetarians and those prescribed vegetarian diets. Based on scientific sources and research, and presenting information in both tabular and prose formats, the book details various diet regimens, health concerns, and energy expenditure. This handbook is written for academic and clinical nutritionists, dieticians, and graduate students in nutrition ad public health, with each chapter rendering a scholarly review of the particular topic. While considering both health benefits and nutritional concerns Vegetarian Nutrition addresses such topics as chronic disease prevention; adequacy of the diet for children, in pregnancy, lactation, and for the aging population; recommendations for a healthy vegetarian diet; and global perspectives.

Sports Nutrition

Research indicates that work capacity, oxygen consumption, and other measures of physical performance by individuals, particularly athletes, are affected by the deficiency or borderline deficiency of specific vitamins or trace elements essential to good nutrition. Sports Nutrition: Vitamins and Trace Elements addresses the relationships of vitamin and trace element needs and interactions to sports and exercise. This book critically reviews research claims regarding the effect of vitamins and trace elements, or lack of, on athletes’ performance. Controversial studies reporting that large doses or "megadoses" of vitamins and trace elements improve physical performance are discussed and evaluated. Each chapter is devoted to one or more specific vitamins or trace elements, providing a complete profile of that particular nutrient and the role it plays. Scientists from a variety of disciplines have contributed their expertise, making this an authoritative and multi-faceted look at vitamins and trace elements as they relate to exercise and sport perfomance.

Nutrition and Behavior


Nutrition and Behavior


$69.99


After the appearance of the four-book series Human Nutrition: A Compre­ hensive Treatise, it became apparent to the editors that an important area of nutrition had been overlooked, namely, behavioral aspects of nutrition. There are two areas in which nutrition and behavior interact. On the one hand, mal­ nutrition may play a major role in determining behavior; alternatively, often aspects of behavior influence the eating habits of populations and individuals and thus affect their nutritional status. Volume 5 of this series speaks eloquently to both features of this important topic. Various aspects of the influence of behavior modification and nutrition have been explored by a number of qualified investigators. It is hoped that this volume will prove a valuable addition to the subjects covered in the other volumes. Roslyn B.

Cancer and Nutrition


Cancer and Nutrition


$239


The role of nutrition in neoplasia has been of longstanding concern. The subject was addressed by investigators in the first decade of this century, but was dropped. Vigorous attention was paid to this area of oncology in the 1940s, primarily due to the efforts of Dr. A. Tannenbaum at the Michael Reese Hospital in Chicago and the group at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. However, interest waned again until the 1970s when the question of diet and cancer was addressed and it has since been at the forefront of cancer research. The present volume (7) of Human Nutrition: A Comprehensive Treatise summarizes current knowledge in the area of nutrition and cancer. The first chapter is an overview written by John Higginson, whose contribution to understanding of cancer and nutrition spans several decades. The next essays cover epidemiology and physiology. The ensuing chapters address, in tum, those dietary factors relating to nutrition and cancer, namely, carbohydrates, protein, fat, cholesterol, calories, lipotropics, fiber, fruits and vegetables, vitamins, and alcohol. In a field moving as rapidly as this one is now, we can expect to miss a few late-breaking developments, but generally, the literature has been well covered through some time in 1988. Work relating to the effects of diet on oncogenes is in its very early development and has not been addressed as an entity per se.

Food and Nutrition


Food and Nutrition


$69.99


As someone who was trained in the clinical sdentific tradition it took me several years to start to appreciate that food was more than a collection of nutrients, and that most people did not make their choices of what to eat on the biologically rational basis of nutritional composition. This realiza­ tion helped tobring me to an understanding of why people didn’t always eat what (I believed) was good for them, and why the patients I had seen in hospital as often as not had failed to follow the dietary advice I had so confidently given. When I entered the field of health education I quickly discovered the farnaus World Health Organization definition of health as being a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease. Health was a triangle -and I had been guilty of virtu­ ally ignoring two sides of that triangle. As I became involved in practical nutrition education initiatives the deficiencies of an approach based on giving information about nutrition and physical health became more and more apparent. The children whom I saw in schools knew exactly what to say when asked to describe a nutritious diet: they could recite the food guide and list rich sources of vitamins and minerals; but none of this intellectual knowledge was reflected in their own actual eating habits.
