Antioxidants in Health and Disease discusses the effects of dietary antioxidants and antioxidant supplementation in humans. It reviews the latest evidence-based research in the area, principally through prospective cohort studies and randomized controlled trials.

The book assesses major dietary antioxidants and discusses their use in diseases such as cancer, diabetes, stroke, coronary heart disease, HIV/AIDS, and neurodegenerative and immune diseases. The use of antioxidants in health is also discussed along with common adverse effects associated with antioxidant use.

Separating myth from fact, this book gives you insight into the true role of antioxidants in health and disease.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"For several decades now, popular media have been attempting to explain to the public the 'medical magic' of free radicals and their capture by antioxidants in the human diet. Opening a broad frontier in nutritional chemistry, the subject of the value of antioxidants requires better mapping by researchers because serious matters of health and disease are involved. This compilation comprises 16 chapters by 41 contributors (two from the US, many from Greece). Thirteen of the contributions focus on life stages, lifestyle, and disease-i.e., pregnancy, growth, old age, exercise, smoking, diabetes, cancer, neurodegeneration, gastrointestinal disorders, obesity, HIV/AIDS, immunology, and the circulatory system. The remaining three chapters cover functions and food sources of dietary antioxidants (especially herbs and spices) and various aspects of good technology and regulations. Because all the chapters read like contributions to scientific journals-and qualify to be submitted to any such journal for peer review-lay readers lacking background in the science will be challenged. Summing up: Recommended. Graduate students; researchers/faculty; professionals."
-M. Kroger, Pennsylvania State University, University Park Campus, USA, for CHOICE, March 2016
