Description

Advances in Dietary Lipids and Human Health systematically summarizes the recent research advances in dietary lipids and human health. This book will propose a strategy for the prevention of NCDs and the management of population and personal health through the rational use of dietary fat.

This book will cover the relationship between total lipids, saturated and unsaturated fatty acids and NCDs, and will also include other uncommon fatty acids (fatty acids present at a low content or else not contained in usual foods), such as conjugated fatty acids, middle and short chain fatty acid, furan fatty acids, n-3 docosapentaenoic acid (DPA), and structured fat.

Intended for nutrition researchers, dieticians, clinicians, and others in academia focused on medicine, preventive medicine, public health and food science students, this valuable reference provides information to assist in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease, hypertension, metabolic disorders, diabetes, neuropsychiatric diseases and cancer through the management of dietary lipids.

Key Features

  • Offers an evidence-based, systematic review of dietary fat and fatty acids and health
  • Provides extensive knowledge on the relationship between type and quantity of lipid, fatty acids and NCDs
  • Proposes a strategy for the prevention of NCDs and the management of population and personal health through the rational use of dietary fat
