Green Tea Health Benefits and Applications (Food Science and Technology)ISBN

Dr. Yukihiko Hara was the first to purify green tea catechins on a larger scale. As Director of the Food Research Laboratories at Mitsui Norin Co, he and his colleagues worked in their extra time to purify these compounds and make them available in the late 1980´s. The methods they developed are used today to purify the green tea extracts available from pills to shampoo. This book reports on their scientific efforts exploring the activity of the catechins and reviews the work of others in the field. It is clearly written in layman´s language with many illustrations. Key areas covered include where catechins come from and how they are purified, anti-oxidant and radical scavenging in food products and animals. Their tests, mostly in animals of the anti-bacterial action, the anti-viral action and the anti-cancer action, are reported in the next few chapters. Each chapter describes the experiments in sufficient detail so you can evaluate the meaning of the effect. There are further chapters on health effects in humans, including fat reduction and improved bowel function, help for diabetes and also hypertension, backed up by straightforward experiments. He ends with a general discussion of trends in the field. Much of this work was done by Dr. Hara´s group and close collaborators, so the original papers were published in Japanese; for many experiments this book is the only way to read about them in English. Green Tea Catechins are now studied around the world, but the quantities needed originated in this lab and he has supplied the catechins other scientists have used for most of that work. Mitsui Norin purified the catechins sold at Sigma Chemicals until this last year. Currently Dr. Hara´s group has a collaborative research effort with the US National Cancer Institute to test the anti-cancer effects of green tea catechins in people with precancerous lesions. The book provides the background one needs to appreciate this effort and gives the history of the science leading up to the NCI trials in a convenient way. Dr. John Weisburger, the distinguished research scientist from the Americal Health Foundation, has written a helpful foreword.

Practical Diabetes Care

Diabetes care has changed enormously in the past few years. Diagnostic criteria have changed and there is strong evidence for the benefits of vigorous treatment of high blood pressure, glucose, cholesterol and other risk factors for complications. Without such care, there is a greater risk of
disability or death. Patients rightly expect high standards of evidence-based care tailored to their personal needs.
General Practitioners are well placed to provide good, local disabetes care. This book provides a step-by-step guide to diabetes care for general practitioners and their teams; some patients may also find it helpful. The author draws on practical experience and takes a realistic, common sense
approach to the assessment, education, monitoring, and treatment of diabetes in all age groups. The new diagnostic criteria are explained and the bewildering range of new pills, insulins and gadgets are clearly discussed with help in choosing the right one for your patient. There are detailed sections on helping patients to manage diabetes in everyday life- eating, exercise, work and travel and there is extensive help about monitoring and adjustment of glucose levels, and how to prevent and cope with emergencies. The book focuses particularly on the preventive, detection and treatmentof diabetic tissue damage, including heart disease. Children, the elderly, and those from varied ethnic backgrounds have dedicated chapters, as do men and women with diabetes.
'Practical Diabetes Care' gently guides those who wish to establish new diabetic services, and provides more detailed specialist information for those who wish to enhance the diabetes care they already provide.
The author has many years of practical experience in the field of diabetes care and has written widely on the topic for professionals and patients.

Mind, Meaning, and Mental Disorder: The Nature of Causal Explanation in Psychology and Psychiatry (International Perspectives in Philosophy and Psychi

Philosophical ideas about the mind, brain, and behaviour can seem theoretical and unimportant when placed alongside the urgent questions of mental distress and disorder. However, there is a need to give direction to attempts to answer these questions. On the one hand a substantial research effort is going into the investigation of brain processes and the development of drug treatments for psychiatric disorders, and on the other, a wide range of psychotherapies is becoming available to adults and children with mental health problems. These two strands reflect traditional distinctions between mind and body, and causal as opposed to meaningful explanations of behaviour. In this book, which has been written for psychiatrists, psychologists, philosophers, and others in related fields, the authors propose a radical re-interpretation of these traditional distinctions. Throughout the discussions philosophical theories are brought to bear on the particular questions of the explanation of behaviours, the nature of mental causation, and eventually the origins of major disorders including depression, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, and personality disorder. First published in 1996, this volume played an important role in bridging the gap between philosophy and psychiatry, and introducing those in psychiatry to philosophical ideas somewhat neglected in their field. Completely updated, the new edition of this acclaimed volume draws on the strengths of the first edition, and will be a central text in the burgeoning field of philosophy of psychiatry.

Download Rapidshare Magnetic Resonance of Myelination and Myelin Disorders

This third edition of Magnetic Resonance of Myelination and Myelin Disorders is considered the worldwide standard text in the field of white matter disorders. No other book covers the field so thoroughly. The 109 chapters extensively detail the myelin disorders known today, from clinical and laboratory data to pathology, chemical pathology, pathogenetic considerations, and therapy as well as magnetic resonance findings. Each new edition has doubled in size to accommodate the immense progress made in the technical features of magnetic resonance as well as the new knowledge in genetic defects, biochemical abnormalities, and cellular processes underlying myelin disorders. Most chapters in this new, updated edition have been entirely rewritten. Forty chapters have been added to include many new disorders now recognized as myelin disorders and to provide broader coverage of both hereditary and acquired myelin disorders in the adult population. A vast collection of nearly 4,000 images fully illustrating the subject matter has been gathered for this new edition. Not only are the typical MRI patterns of the diseases described, but, with recently available genetic confirmation, MRI phenotypic variation is also elucidated, best illustrated in the chapters on Alexander disease. The chapter on congenital muscular dystrophies clearly exemplifies the improved insight into disease classification based on the growing knowledge of related genes and how this is reflected in MRI patterns. This book is a valuable source of information for neurologists, pediatric neurologists, neuroradiologists, pediatricians, and geneticists. It belongs in the library of every radiology and neurology department.
