What would you do if you discovered that the food you have been told is good for you is actually the cause of your ill health …?
In December 2010, Professor Tim Noakes was introduced to a way of eating that was contrary to everything he had been taught and was accepted as conventional nutrition ‘wisdom’. Having observed the benefits of the low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) lifestyle first-hand, and after thorough and intensive research, Noakes enthusiastically revealed his findings to the South African public in 2012. The backlash from his colleagues in the medical establishment was as swift as it was brutal, and culminated in a misconduct inquiry launched by the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA). The subsequent hearing lasted well over a year, but Noakes ultimately triumphed, being found not guilty of unprofessional conduct in April 2017.
In Lore of Nutrition, he explains the science behind the LCHF/Banting diet, and why he champions this lifestyle despite the constant persecution and efforts to silence him. He also discusses at length what he has come to see as a medical and scientific code of silence that discourages anyone in the profession from speaking out against the current dietary guidelines. Experienced journalist Marika Sboros provides the full backstory to the HPCSA hearing, which reads like something out of a spy novel.
Written in an accessible style, Lore of Nutrition is informative, highly controversial and an eye-opener for anyone who cares about their health.
Your gut is astonishingly clever. It contains millions of neurons - as many as you would find in the brain of a cat - and is home to the microbiome, trillions of microbes that influence your mood, your immune system, and even your appetite.
In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Mosley takes us on a revelatory journey through the gut, showing how junk food and overuse of antibiotics have wiped out many good gut bacteria, leading to a modern plague of allergies, food intolerances, and obesity.
Drawing from the latest cutting-edge research, Dr. Mosley provides scientifically proven ways to control your cravings, boost your mood, and lose weight by encouraging a more diverse microbiome and increasing the good bacteria that keep you healthy.
Packed with delicious, healing recipes, meal plans, checklists, and tips, The Clever Guts Diet includes all the tools you need to transform your gut and your health, for life.
UNDERSTANDING NORMAL AND CLINICAL NUTRITION, Tenth Edition, provides the most current and comprehensive coverage of the fundamentals of nutrition and nutrition therapy for an introductory course. The early chapters focus on "normal" nutrition, including digestion and metabolism, vitamins and minerals, and life cycle nutrition. The later chapters cover "clinical" nutrition--the pathophysiology and nutrition therapy for a wide range of medical conditions. The text integrates practical information and valuable resources to help students apply nutrition knowledge and skills to their daily lives and the clinical setting. Features such as case studies, "How To" boxes with real-world examples, and study cards help students apply the material and build their conceptual understanding. Regardless of the students' background, the consistent level, approachable narrative, and careful explanations in UNDERSTANDING NORMAL AND CLINICAL NUTRITION will engage students and enable them to be actively involved in the field of nutrition.
This revised edition has three comprehensive chapters on Environmental Health. Vlok’s Community Health remains the ideal accompaniment for health professionals working in the community.

Social aspects have not been overlooked and appropriate chapters on Family Pathologies, Intimate Partner Violence and Cultural World Views have been included.
Across the world, 2 billion people experience menstruation, yet menstruation is seen as a mark of shame. We are told not to discuss it in public, that tampons and sanitary pads should be hidden away, the blood rendered invisible. In many parts of the world, poverty, culture and religion collide causing the taboo around menstruation to have grave consequences. Younger people who menstruate are deterred from going to school, adults from work, infections are left untreated. The shame is universal and the silence a global rule. In It's Only Blood Anna Dahlqvist tells the shocking but always moving stories of why and how people from Sweden to Bangladesh, from the United States to Uganda, are fighting back against the shame.
Our planet is in the grip of an obesity pandemic. More than a billion people worldwide are overweight and over 600 million are obese. We live in an obesogenic environment in which it is much easier to get fat than to stay fit. How has this come to be? Who is to blame? What can we do?
In Fat Planet, Dr David Lewis and Dr Margaret Leitch examine the social and psychological causes of the obesity pandemic in order to answer these questions. They use ground-breaking research to highlight the behaviour of corporations that relentlessly promote foods high in sugar, fat and salt, and show that these 'junk' foods have shockingly similar neurological effects to hard drugs. They consider the prevalence of food cues which unconsciously stimulate our desire to consume. And they debunk the myths of fad diets and slimming pills, suggesting practical, easily implemented strategies for sustainable weight loss.
The evidence is clear: our problem with obesity must be addressed or we will face catastrophic consequences. It is not too late to change.
Culture and its impact on health assessment and interventions is widely recognised as an essential aspect of medical training. While courses are proliferating throughout Africa and the rest of the world, there has, until now, been no suitable student textbook or reference text to support such initiatives. The authors of Cultural issues in health and health care deal with the basic principles of transcultural care and focus on training practitioners to be able to put the principles into practice in their own health settings.
Curricula in nursing, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, human nutrition and medicine have to include modules on integrative healthcare in the pre-registration programmes (degree and diploma programmes) in order to educate prospective health professionals with regard to the basic principles of integrative healing (complementary and alternative practices).
Modules on alternative healing should be included in pre-registration curricula in order to educate health professionals with regard to the basic principles of traditional healing, herbalism, reflexology and aromatherapy. This is especially so because the integration of alternative allied health professions into the healthcare team is encouraged by healthcare providers.
No other textbook on integrative healthcare that includes the principles of traditional healing is currently available to be used in the training of nurses, doctors and allied health professionals at universities and colleges.
Mahatma Gandhi redefined nutrition as a holistic approach to
building a more just world. What he chose to eat was intimately
tied to his beliefs. His key values of nonviolence, religious
tolerance, and rural sustainability developed in coordination with
his dietary experiments.
We all know that food is medicine - yet going without food is one of the single best things you can do for your health. Short, doable fasts, when strategically timed, are an incredibly powerful metabolic intervention, dovetailing perfectly with a ketogenic diet to activate your body's fat-burning mode. This in turn can ward off insulin resistance, reduce oxidative stress and inflammation, optimize brain function, prevent neurological problems, support weight loss, and more. In this in-depth yet accessible guide, Dr. Joseph Mercola explores the profound health benefits that result when ketogenic living and well-planned fasting are combined. Topics include: - How our food is making us sick and what we can do about it - The physiology and mechanisms of fasting, including stem cell activation - How the cyclical ketogenic diet - with fasting included - differs from the conventional keto diet - How fasting works and how safe it is for you - How regular one-day fasts support fat burning and detoxification while minimizing hunger and side effects - How to monitor your progress with lab tests - And much more "This will be an exciting journey for you," Dr. Mercola writes. "I am beyond excited for you to implement what I consider to be one of the most powerful physical strategies to help you not only recover your health, but also improve it to levels you likely never believed were possible."
Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett's The Spirit Level, now published in more than twenty languages, has been one of the most influential non-fiction books published in the last decade, showing conclusively how less equal societies fare worse than more equal ones across a whole range of social measures - health, education, levels of violence, life expectancy and child wellbeing - and initiating the enormous public attention now given to the impacts of inequality. Based on an equally impressive range of data and analysis, The Inner Level now shows the impact inequality has on individuals: how it affects us psychologically, makes social relations more stressful, undermines self-confidence and distorts natural differences in personal abilities. It demonstrates that societies based on fundamental equalities, sharing and reciprocity produce much higher levels of wellbeing than those based on excessive individualism, competitiveness and social aggression. Like its predecessor, The Inner Level will transform ideas of how we should organise the way we live together.

NUTRITION AND DIET THERAPY, 9th Edition, is unique in its organization by diets rather than by organ systems or disease states and distinguishes itself through rich pedagogical features that require students to apply their knowledge as they learn it. This text provides core nutrition concepts and up-to-date clinical content at a level that is accessible to the range of health care team members who are responsible for a client's nutrition needs. NUTRITION AND DIET THERAPY provides the basic facts and a wealth of practical information readers need to assume their responsibility for nutrition care.
This text attempts to lift the lid on the food industry. It is a topical and politically charged examination of an adulterated food supply chain and the governmental and European Community policies that maintain the status quo.
Mounting scientific evidence generated over the past decade highlights the significant role of our cities' built environments in shaping our health and well-being. In this book, the authors conceptualize the `urban health niche' as a novel approach to public health and healthy-city planning that integrates the diverse and multi-level health determinants present in a city system. The authors trace the origins of public health and city planning, drawing upon the shifting paradigms of epidemiology. Advanced network analysis techniques are employed to examine multi-scale associations between individual-level health outcomes and built environment features such as density, land-use mix and road network configuration. Healthy Cities will prove a fascinating read for an interdisciplinary body of scholars, practitioners and policy makers within the domains of public policy, regional and urban studies, urban planning, spatial epidemiology, health geography, sociology, public health and psychology.
Secrets of the Diet Codes unveils the diet strategy designed so humans can be healthy, lose weight and enjoy a long life. It adheres to our DNA body profile, without us having to spend the first half of our lives eating fashion foods and then suffering from diet-related disorders for the rest. There are five secrets in this elusive diet. "The old cliche ‘you are what you eat’ doesn’t even begin to describe the full impact of diet on humans. The social behaviour patterns for non-plant feeders, like the canine groups, are loyalty, tolerance, obedience, respect for both the young and females, sharing, trust and pack interest. Primate communities, on the other hand, that are highly reliant on plant nutrients show their classical social behavior patterns by way of aggression, being agenda-driven, corruption, disrespect for females, bullying, suspicion and zero tolerance. But the phrase ‘abstinence will set you free’ makes for much better prospects."
