    Description / Table of Contents: Preface -- Life-cycle approach for prevention of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) -- Early origins of health and disease in development of NCDs -- Epigenetic and NCDs -- The role of environmental disruptor chemicals in development of NCDs -- Early life nutrition and NCDs -- Prevention and control of childhood obesity: the backbone in prevention of NCDs -- Index
    Abstract: This book is about primordial prevention of non-communicable diseases (NCDs). It is a comprehensive overview on developmental origins of health and disease regarding various factors related to the origins of NCDs from early life. It provides a summary of the impacts of various factors including epigenetics; gene-environment interaction; ethnic predisposition to NCDs and their risk factors; prenatal factors; fetal programming; maternal weight status; type of feeding during infancy; growth pattern during childhood; obesity; socioeconomic status; dietary and physical activity habits; as well as environmental factors for attenuating the development and progress of NCDs and their risk factors. We discuss about comprehensive interventions including modification for healthy lifestyle, regular physical activity, decrease screen time and behavioral interventions for management of childhood obesity. The present book is especially suitable for students, faculty members, researchers, and the entire health care system

    Abstract: This book examines the role of bioactive lipids as pro- and anti-inflammatory mediators in the diagnosis of and as novel therapies for cardiovascular disease, cancer, ocular and neurologic diseases, and inflammatory conditions. The major pathways of arachidonic acid and omega-3 fatty acid metabolism are represented, including cyclooxygenases, lipoxygenases, cytochrome P450 monooxygenases, specialized pro-resolving mediators, endocannabinoids, and ceramide and other sphingolipids. This book would be of great interest to basic and translational researchers, as well as physician-scientists working on selected topics (e.g., cancer, cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes, inflammation, etc.) in which the underlying role of lipid mediators in the pathophysiology is known or suspected. This compilation of peer-reviewed manuscripts represents reviews of timely topics presented at the 15th International Conference on Bioactive Lipids in Cancer, Inflammation and Related Diseases. Authors selected are outstanding junior investigators representative of future leaders in the field of bioactive lipids

    Abstract: This book collects and reviews, for the first time, a wide range of advances in the area of human aging biomarkers. This accumulated data allows researchers to assess the rate of aging processes in various organs and systems, and to individually monitor the effectiveness of therapies intended to slow aging. In an introductory chapter, the editor defines biomarkers of aging as molecular, cellular and physiological parameters that demonstrate reproducible changes - quantitative or qualitative - with age. The introduction recounts a study which aimed to create a universal model of biological age, whose most predictive parameters were albumin and alkaline phosphatase (indication liver function), glucose (metabolic syndrome), erythrocytes (respiratory function) and urea (renal function). The book goes on to describe DNA methylation, known as the €œépigenetic clock,́€ as currently the most comprehensive predictor of total mortality. It is also useful for predicting mortality from cancer and cardiovascular diseases, and for analyzing the effects of lifestyle factors including diet, exercise, and education. Individual contributions draw additional insight from research on genetics and epigenetic aging markers, and immunosenescence and inflammaging markers. A concluding chapter outlines the challenge of integrating of biological and clinical markers of aging. Biomarkers of Human Aging is written for professionals and practitioners engaged in the study of aging, and will be useful to both advanced students and researchers
