Product Description

An important and timely book, Cardiovascular Disease: Diet, Nutrition and Emerging Risk Factors comprises the comprehensive and authoritative independent report of the British Nutrition Foundation Task Force on the link between emerging aspects of diet and cardiovascular disease, a major cause of early death and disability.  Written by leading experts on the subject, this book looks further than the well recognized factors, such as high blood cholesterol and smoking, to identify and explore more subtle markers of risk, such as imflammation and clotting.

Chapters include coverage of novel lipid factors, vascular function, clotting factors, inflammatory factors, oxidative stress and homocysteine, and early origins of adult disease.  The impact of obesity, insulin resistance, genetic predisposition and factors related to adipose tissue are also addressed.  Of vital use to a wide range of health professionals this cutting-edge book provides (1) core information for health professionals as well as those involved in food formulation in the food industry, (2) a dedicated question and answer chapter, and (3) important conclusions and recommendations.
