The planet Earth is furthermore hampered with a large number of ecological issues. Emission of Greenhouse gases, water and land pollution have already seriously damaged the Earth´s eco-system, while on a flip side undernourishment is still widespread problem.

The first book to identify the eating disorder orthorexia nervosa-an obsession with eating healthfully-and offer expert advice on how to treat it. As Americans become better informed about health, more and more people have turned to diet as a way to lose weight and keep themselves in peak condition. Anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa-disorders in which the sufferer focuses on the quantity of food eaten-have been highly documented over the past decade. But as Dr. Steven Bratman asserts in this breakthrough book, for many people, eating ´´correctly? has become an equally harmful obsession, one that causes them to adopt progressively more rigid diets that not only eliminate crucial nutrients and food groups, but ultimately cost them their overall health, personal relationships, and emotional well-being. Health Food Junkies is the first book to identify this new eating disorder, orthorexia nervosa, and to offer detailed, practical advice on how to cope with and overcome it. Orthorexia nervosa occurs when the victim becomes obsessed, not with the quantity of food eaten, but the quality of the food. What starts as a devotion to healthy eating can evolve into a pattern of incredibly strict diets; victims become so focused on eating a ´´pure? diet (usually raw vegetables and grains) that the planning and preparation of food come to play the dominant role in their lives. Health Food Junkies provides an expert analysis of some of today´s most popular diets-from The Zone to macrobiotics, raw-foodism to food allergy elimination-and shows not only how they can lead to orthorexia, but how they are often built on faulty logic rather than sound medical advice. Offering expert insight gleaned from his work with orthorexia patients, Dr. Bratman outlines the symptoms of orthorexia, describes its progression, and shows readers how to diagnose the condition. Finally, Dr. Bratman offers practical suggestions for intervention and treatment, giving readers the tools they need to conquer this painful disorder, rediscover the joys of eating, and reclaim their lives.

This text focuses on the many benefits of the use of nanobiotechnology in the food industry. Each aspect of nanobiotechnology use is covered in depth, from food processing to packaging to safety and quality control. The authors outline the definition and history of nanobiotechnology and cover novel technologies for its use in the food industry, including the advantages and challenges for food scientists. Individual chapters focus on the food industry´s use of nano-additives, nano-sensors, nano-encapsulation for nutrition delivery and considerations for commercialization. The potential hazards for nanoparticle use, as well as the future prospects of nanobiotechnology use in the food industry, are presented here in depth. Nanobiotechnology in Food: Concepts, Applications and Perspectives explores the emerging developments in nanotechnology which make it increasingly applicable to the food industry. Nanoparticles are applied during food processing to improve nutritional quality, flow properties, flavor, color and stability, and also to increase shelf life by decreasing the activity of microorganisms. Nanotechnology is important for the development of healthier foods with lower fat, sugar and salt levels, and to overcome many food-related diseases. This book shows how producers and manufacturers can make great strides in food quality and safety by using nanotechnology.

Once in his office, or, as he called it on his signboard, “Dental Parlors;” he took off his coat and shoes, unbuttoned his vest, and, having crammed his little stove full of coke, lay back in his operating chair at the bay window, reading the paper, drinking his beer, and smoking his huge porcelain pipe while his food digested; crop-full, stupid, and warm. By and by, gorged with steam beer, and overcome by the heat of the room, the cheap tobacco, and the effects of his heavy meal, he dropped off to sleep. Late in the afternoon his canary bird, in its gilt cage just over his head, began to sing. He woke slowly, finished the rest of his beer—very flat and stale by this time—and taking down his concertina from the bookcase, where in week days it kept the company of seven volumes of “Allen´s Practical Dentist;” played upon it some half-dozen very mournful airs.
