Eat a rainbow

In Sweet Poison it is argued that unlike other foods, fructose does not satisfy hunger. When eating fructose-rich foods, people therefore continue to eat even after consuming more than what is required. The author claims that as a result, nearly everyone is putting on weight. Sweet Poison continues to argue that fructose has severe and adverse effects on health, leading to alarming levels of chronic disease including heart disease, type 2 diabetes and even some cancers.

Sweet Poison recognises that fructose derived naturally from whole fruit has a different metabolic effect on the body when compared with fructose added to the diet, largely due to the presence of dietary fibre. Gillespie therefore recommends consuming two serves of fruit daily, as outlined by the Australian Dietary Guidelines. Because the fructose in fruit juice is not accompanied by dietary fibre, Sweet Poison suggests that drinking fruit juice results in the same deleterious health outcomes as does consuming added fructose.

To prevent or treat obesity and chronic disease, Gillespie recommends avoiding all sweet-tasting foods other than two daily servings of fruit. Unfortunately, Sweet Poison is based on gross misinterpretation and neglect of key aspects of the nutrition-related scientific literature.

In fact, Sweet Poison is replete with errors and dubious claims. Though strong evidence suggest that excessive consumption of sucrose and therefore fructose is harmful to health, no evidence supports that claim that added fructose is a poison at any dose. This is recognised in the advice given by all national and international health authorities to limit not avoid intake of sugars and sweetened foods.

Many Australians eat excessive quantities of sugar and would benefit from reducing their intake of sweetened foods and drinks. Sweet Poison is not a reliable source of information regarding the effects of fructose on body weight and health.

They were highly successful in covering a broad area of psychiatry from different perspectives and angles and by reflecting both specialized but also international and global approaches. This series have guaranteed quality therefore can be used by different scientific groups for teaching and learning and also as a means for fast dissemination of advanced research and transformation of research findings into the everyday clinical practice.

There is already a body of readers anticipating the next volume. Statistical Methods for Survival Trial Design: With Applications to Cancer Clinical Trials Using R provides a thorough presentation of the principles of designing and monitoring cancer clinical trials in which time-to-event is the primary endpoint.

Traditional cancer trial designs with time-to-event endpoints are often limited to the exponential model or proportional hazards model.

In practice, however, those model assumptions may not be satisfied for long-term survival trials. This book is the first to cover comprehensively the many newly developed methodologies for survival trial design, including trial design under the Weibull survival models; extensions of the sample size calculations under the proportional hazard models; and trial design under mixture cure models, complex survival models, Cox regression models, and competing-risk models.

A general sequential procedure based on the sequential conditional probability ratio test is also implemented for survival trial monitoring.

All methodologies are presented with sufficient detail for interested researchers or graduate students. Presenting best practices for assessment and intervention with older adults experiencing cognitive decline, this book draws on cutting-edge research and extensive clinical experience.

The volume provides guidelines for evaluating and differentiating among normal aging, subjective cognitive decline, mild cognitive impairment, and different types of dementia. Evidence-based strategies for pharmacological, cognitive, behavioral, and psychological intervention with patients and their caregivers are illustrated with vivid case examples. The research and outcomes presented in this book gather evidence concerning both the pathogenesis and treatment of functional dyspepsia.

It provides the latest information on this common non-organic disease, indicating its characteristic pathogenesis based on the brain-gut interaction and micro-environment and evidence gleaned from clinical treatment. Since the pathogenesis is associated with psychology, neurology, endocrinology and bacteriology in addition to gastroenterological physiology, it is often intractable and finding a suitable treatment rationale is challenging.

Furthermore, the pathogenesis varies around the world and the efficacy of treatment using standard drugs varies among different populations worldwide; accordingly, this book highlights evidence gained in clinical trials in Japan. Functional Dyspepsia is a milestone produced by respected experts. The first in a three-volume set exploring Problems and Solutions in Medical Physics, this volume explores common questions and their solutions in Diagnostic Imaging. This invaluable study guide should be used in conjunction with other key textbooks in the field to provide additional learning opportunities.

It contains key imaging modalities, exploring X-ray, mammography, and fluoroscopy, in addition to computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and ultrasonography. Each chapter provides examples, notes, and references for further reading to enhance understanding. Consolidates concepts and assists in the understanding and applications of theoretical concepts in medical physics Assists lecturers and instructors in setting assignments and tests Suitable as a revision tool for postgraduate students sitting medical physics, oncology, and radiology sciences examinations.
