With unparalleled depth and breadth of coverage, Obesity: Epidemiology, Pathophysiology and Prevention is a comprehensive resource for sound, up-to-the-minute data for managing obesity. Divided into eight sections, the text covers epidemiology and pathophysiology, associated degenerative diseases, drug development and safety, the intricacies of childhood obesity, and the benefits of bariatric surgery. An expansive portion of the book considers natural, nutritional, and physical approaches to weight management. It explores exercise; diet; and gender differences; along with research on a wide range of functional foods, neutraceuticals, and natural supplements such as hydroxycitric acid, marine lipids, polyphenolic compounds, trivalent chromium, and ephedra.
