About this book

Although it has long been recognized that what we eat and how we deal with stress play a major role in disease prevention and treatment, it is only recently that the scientific basis of this relationship has been aggressively studied. In Nutrients, Stress, and Medical Disorders, prominent researchers from academia, industry, and medicine survey current clinical findings on the complex interactions between diet, mental health, and stress, and their impact on disease states. The authors consider specific nutrients (fatty acids, glucocorticoids, herbal products, and alcohol), the effects of food, and stress, taking into account even environmental influences other than diet and their effects on stress and central nervous system functions. They give special attention to the influence of stress on physical health, mental health, and cognitive function, including the critical effects of maternal nutritional status and stress levels on fetal physical and mental development, the role of lipids in the development and treatment of depression, the role of fish oil in the development of aggressive behaviors, and the consequences of obesity on stress and the development of eating disorders. Additional chapters examine the effects of stress on chronic disorders, women, and cardiac function, and the influence of inflammation on diet, neurological functions, disease incidence, and cognitive functions.
Authoritative and up-to-date, Nutrients, Stress, and Medical Disorders offers health professionals in many areas of research and practice not only an easy-to-understand benchmark review of the importance of nutrition in reducing stress-related chronic diseases and optimizing health, but also insight into exciting possibilities for drug development, the design of therapeutic programs, and future research opportunities.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"S. Yehuda and D. Mostofsky have gathered in this volume … a total of 25 chapters divided in 4 parts, each chapter presenting a particular aspect of the relationships between 2 of the 3 terms contained in the title, i.e. nutrients and stress, nutrients and medical disorders, and stress and medical disorders. … provides a wealth of information on the various links between nutrition, stress and brain function. It should therefore be very useful for the scientific and medical community interested in nutritional neurosciences." (Sylvie Chalon, Psychoneuroendocrinology, June, 2006)
