Obesity: Oxidative Stress and Dietary Antioxidants aims to cover in a single volume the science of oxidative stress in obesity and associated conditions or scenarios including metabolic syndrome and bariatric surgery and the potentially therapeutic usage of natural antioxidants in the diet or food matrix. The processes within the science of oxidative stress are not described in isolation but in concert with other processes such as apoptosis, cell signaling, and receptor mediated responses. This approach recognizes that diseases are often multifactorial and oxidative stress is a single component of this. Obesity: Oxidative Stress and Dietary Antioxidants is designed for nutritionists, dietitians, food scientists, physicians and clinical workers, health care workers and research scientists. Contributions are from leading national and international experts.
- Covers the basic processes of oxidative stress from molecular biology to whole organs in relation to obesity
- Highlights antioxidants in foods including plants and components of the diet
- Provides the framework for further in-depth analysis or studies via well-designed clinical trials or via the analysis of pathways, mechanisms and components in order to devise new therapeutic strategies
