The average age of the population is increasing every year, in western nations particularly, largely as a result of modern medicine and disease eradication. There is now increasing concrete evidence that diet has a significant effect on life expectancy. Diet and Healthy Ageing presents evidence for the link between diet and health, and the ageing process, focussing on the overall effects of diet and the possible role that individual components of the diet might play in increasing or decreasing susceptibility to age-related diseases. Particular attention is given to anti-oxidants, which are now seen as being critically important in a number of processes. Contents include diets as sources of energy, food metabolism, the biochemistry of energy utilisation, theories of ageing, diseases of ageing related to diet, plant foods and health, and socio-economic issues. The book is an essential purchase for nutritionists, dietitians and gerontologists.
