Physical Activity And Cancer

Kerry S. Courneya Springer Science & Business Media

This book explores in depth the relation between physical activity and cancer control, including primary prevention, coping with treatments, recovery after treatments, long-term survivorship, secondary prevention, and survival. The first part of the book presents the most recent research on the impact of physical activity in preventing a range of cancers. In the second part, the association between physical activity and cancer survivorship is addressed. The effects of physical activity on supportive care endpoints (e.g., quality of life, fatigue, physical functioning) and disease endpoints (e.g., biomarkers, recurrence, survival) are carefully analyzed. In addition, the determinants of physical activity in cancer survivors are discussed, and behavior change strategies for increasing physical activity in cancer survivors are appraised. The final part of the book is devoted to special topics, including the relation of physical activity to pediatric cancer survivorship and to palliative cancer care.

An Evidence Based Approach To Vitamins And Minerals

Jane Higdon Thieme

Organized by nutrient, this evidence-based reference synthesizes all of the most current research on vitamins and minerals in an easy-to-use format. Each chapter addresses the function the nutrient plays in the human body; current definitions of deficiency, including Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) or Adequate Intake (AI) recommendations; the use of the nutrient for prevention or treatment of a disease, if known; dietary and other sources of the nutrient, including food and supplement sources (breaking down the different supplement forms); safety precautions for overdosing and drug interactions; and the Linus Pauling Institute's current recommendation for health maintenance. Each chapter has been reviewed by an expert in the area, all of whom are noted in the Editorial Advisory Board. This work is endorsed by the Linus Pauling Institute of Oregon State University. Four appendices add to the clinical usefulness of this work: a quick reference to disease prevention and treatment recommendations made throughout the text, nutrient - nutrient interactions, drug - nutrient interactions, and a glossary.

Que Bobagem

Natalia Pasternak Editora Contexto

"A maioria das pessoas parece ter, pelo menos, uma pseudociência de estimação. Ficaremos satisfeitos, nestes casos, em plantar no mínimo uma semente de ceticismo que leve o leitor a considerar: será?" "Energias curativas, bolinhas de açúcar mágicas, terapias que invocam os antepassados e maluquices inventadas sobre o poder avassalador dos desejos inconscientes operam, todas, sob 'leis de tapete voador'. Podem render boas metáforas, boa literatura, boa retórica, mas assim como a Odisseia não prova que os deuses do Olimpo existem, uma história bem contada não é necessariamente uma história real." "Buscamos oferecer uma vacina para o pensamento mágico, um manual para reconhecer mercadores de ilusões e identificar soluções mágicas. Esperamos assim poupar a saúde, o bem-estar e o bolso do leitor." A ciência é limitada pela nossa capacidade de ver, interrogar e interpretar a natureza. Pseudociências são limitadas apenas pela imaginação, vaidade e, não raro, ganância de seus promotores. Por isso, seu poder de sedução é enorme. E isso, segundo Natalia Pasternak e Carlos Orsi, pode ter consequências perigosas. Os autores abordam os 12 temas e mostram como e por que não passam pelo crivo da ciência: Astrologia, Homeopatia, Acupuntura e MTC, Curas naturais, Curas energéticas, Modismos de dieta, Psicanálise e psicomodismos, Paranormalidade, Discos voadores, Pseudoarqueologia , Antroposofia e Poder quântico.

The Pegan Diet

Dr. Mark Hyman Little, Brown Spark

Twelve-time New York Times bestselling author Mark Hyman, MD, presents his unique Pegan diet—including meal plans, recipes, and shopping lists. For decades, the diet wars have pitted advocates for the low-carb, high-fat paleo diet against advocates of the exclusively plant-based vegan diet and dozens of other diets leaving most of us bewildered and confused. For those of us on the sidelines, trying to figure out which approach is best has been nearly impossible—both extreme diets have unique benefits and drawbacks. But how can it be, we've asked desperately, that our only options are bacon and butter three times a day or endless kale salads? How do we eat to reverse disease, optimal health, longevity and performance. How do we eat to reverse climate change? There must be a better way! Fortunately, there is. With The Pegan Diet's food-is-medicine approach, Mark Hyman explains how to take the best aspects of the paleo diet (good fats, limited refined carbs, limited sugar) and combine them with the vegan diet (lots and lots of fresh, healthy veggies) to create a delicious diet that is not only good for your brain and your body, but also good for the planet. Featuring thirty recipes and plenty of infographics illustrating the concepts, The Pegan Diet offers a balanced and easy-to-follow approach to eating that will help you get, and stay, fit, healthy, focused, and happy—for life.

The 4 Disciplines Of Execution

Chris McChesney Simon and Schuster

BUSINESS STRATEGY. "The 4 Disciplines of Execution "offers the what but also how effective execution is achieved. They share numerous examples of companies that have done just that, not once, but over and over again. This is a book that every leader should read! (Clayton Christensen, Professor, Harvard Business School, and author of "The Innovator s Dilemma)." Do you remember the last major initiative you watched die in your organization? Did it go down with a loud crash? Or was it slowly and quietly suffocated by other competing priorities? By the time it finally disappeared, it s likely no one even noticed. What happened? The whirlwind of urgent activity required to keep things running day-to-day devoured all the time and energy you needed to invest in executing your strategy for tomorrow. "The 4 Disciplines of Execution" can change all that forever.
