Temporary Skeletal Anchorage Devices - A Guide to Design and Evidence-Based Solution (Hardcover, 2014 ed.): Ki Beom Kim Temporary Skeletal Anchorage Devices - A Guide to Design and Evidence-Based Solution (Hardcover, 2014 ed.)
Ki Beom Kim

Anchorage control is one of the most challenging tasks in orthodontic treatment. Many different types of appliance are used to control anchorage, but an excellent outcome may be difficult to achieve owing to either poor mechanics or inadequate patient compliance. Recently, temporary skeletal anchorage devices (TSADs) have become popular in orthodontics. Some orthodontic movements that are now possible using TSADs were previously considered almost impossible with traditional orthodontic appliances. Several different types of TSAD are currently available, and in choosing between them orthodontists are obliged to rely on the information provided by manufacturers, which is often not based on scientific evidence. This book therefore presents the various design characteristics of TSADs and provides up-to-date scientific evidence to assist orthodontists in selecting the best TSADs for their patients.

Food and Addiction - A Comprehensive Handbook (Paperback): Kelly D. Brownell, Mark S Gold Food and Addiction - A Comprehensive Handbook (Paperback)
Kelly D. Brownell, Mark S Gold
R1,716 Discovery Miles 17 160 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Can certain foods hijack the brain in ways similar to drugs and alcohol, and is this effect sufficiently strong to contribute to major diseases such as obesity, diabetes, and heart disease, and hence constitute a public health menace? Terms like "chocoholic" and "food addict" are part of popular lore, some popular diet books discuss the concept of addiction, and there are food addiction programs with names like Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous. Clinicians who work with patients often hear the language of addiction when individuals speak of irresistible cravings, withdrawal symptoms when starting a diet, and increasing intake of palatable foods over time. But what does science show, and how strong is the evidence that food and addiction is a real and important phenomenon? Food and Addiction: A Comprehensive Handbook brings scientific order to the issue of food and addiction, spanning multiple disciplines to create the foundation for what is a rapidly advancing field and to highlight needed advances in science and public policy. The book assembles leading scientists and policy makers from fields such as nutrition, addiction, psychology, epidemiology, and public health to explore and analyze the scientific evidence for the addictive properties of food. It provides complete and comprehensive coverage of all subjects pertinent to food and addiction, from basic background information on topics such as food intake, metabolism, and environmental risk factors for obesity, to diagnostic criteria for food addiction, the evolutionary and developmental bases of eating addictions, and behavioral and pharmacologic interventions, to the clinical, public health, and legal and policy implications of recognizing the validity of food addiction. Each chapter reviews the available science and notes needed scientific advances in the field.

The next 3 chapters will deal with general topics within forensic pathology, including the forensic autopsy, postmortem changes and time of death, and body identification. Chapters 10 through 20 will detail the major types of deaths encountered by forensic pathologists, including natural deaths, drug/toxin deaths, blunt force injuries, gunshot wounds, sharp force injuries, asphyxia, drowning, electrocution, temperature-related injuries, burns and fires, and infant/childhood deaths. The final chapter includes brief descriptions dealing with various miscellaneous topics, such as in-custody deaths, homicidal deaths related to underlying natural disease, and artifacts in forensic pathology. This atlas differs from competition in that no atlas currently exists that address material for non-pathologists (detectives, forensic entomologists and pathologists), who normally interact with forensic pathologists. The book will present such images that are or interest to not only forensic pathologists but also of interest to odontology, anthropology, crime scene investigators, fingerprints specialists, DNA specialists and entomologists, etc. The competing atlases present images of interest mostly to medical examiners, forensic pathologists and pathologists and consist mostly of wounds, and trauma with some coverage of diseases. The color photographs will come from the collection of over 50,000 slides in the Adelaide Australia collection and some 100,000 slides from the collection compiled by Dr. Prahlow that includes slides from Cook County, Indianapolis, and North Carolina.

This one-stop resource is ideal for understanding the extent to which toxic chemicals are used in American industry and agriculture-impacting public health and the environment through everything from industrial solvents to children's toys. Every year, about four billion pounds of toxic chemicals are generated and released by U.S. industries. Do these chemicals pose a potential health threat to American families, including vulnerable groups like children and the elderly? Is their manufacture and use adequately regulated to protect both human and environmental health? Is the Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act, signed in June 2016 by former President Obama with bipartisan support, truly the first major overhaul of toxic chemical regulation in forty years to put human health first, as its supporters asserted? Or is it a fatally flawed bill that does the bidding of industry by undermining strong state environmental and public health laws, as some detractors claim? This two-volume set will address all of those questions. Moreover, it will present and examine arguments marshaled by business interests, community leaders, scientists, activists, and lawmakers alike. It will thus provide users with the information they need to accurately assess the impacts-pro and con-that industrial chemicals are having in shaping the world in which we work, eat, drink, breathe, and play. Approximately 300 encyclopedia entries on toxic chemicals in the United States, including product/commercial uses, laws and regulations governing their use, environmental and human health risks, types of contamination, and notable events and individuals Chronology of major events in the development and regulation of toxic chemicals in the United States Authoritative and objective analysis of the risks and benefits of chemicals in modern society Perspectives of chemical industry and related businesses, environmental and public health advocacy organizations, and lawmakers from across the political spectrum
