Evidence-Based Nutrition and Clinical Evidence of Bioactive Foods in Human Health and Disease explores a wide range of studies from clinical investigations to mechanistic research, covering the actions of bioactives on specific tissues and cells in intestinal, neurological, immunological and cardiovascular health and disease, including cancers. The book also focuses on metabolism, mechanisms of actions, tissue-specific effects, and the structure–function relationships between clinical trial, ex vivo and in vitro data. Written for nutrition researchers, clinical researchers, dieticians, and others working in and studying health-related fields, this book highlights the concepts surrounding the preventive and therapeutic impacts of bioactive foods.

About the Author

Asim Duttaroy

Dr. Asim K. Duttaroy is a professor at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Oslo, Oslo, Norway. His research programs focus on the roles of food components on growth and development, as well as in the prevention of diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. He is also investigating the roles of the antiplatelet and antihypertensive properties of fruits and vegetables. His discoveries of antithrombotic factors in tomatoes and kiwifruits are patented internationally, and three companies (Provexis Limited in the United Kingdom, IDIA AS in Norway, and Genimen Pharmacon in India) are working to commercialize these discoveries. He has published over 265 original contributions and reviews, 6 books, and several book chapters and editorials, and he is the Editor-in-Chief of the journal Food & Nutrition Research, as well as a guest editor of several journals such as Nutrients and Frontiers in Physiology.
