Encyclopedia of Obesity - neues Buch

2006

ISBN: 9781412952385

ID: 1995642

"The United States has seen a dramatic increase in obesity over the last 20 years. This work, edited by Keller (human nutrition, Columbia Univ. Coll. of Physicians & Surgeons; research associate, New York Obesity Research Ctr.), seeks to be a starting point for those interested in learning about all aspects of obesity. There are approximately 500 entries, some with black-and-white photos. The scope is global: continents are listed as entries by geographical region, e.g., Asia is broken down into "Asia, Central," "Asia, East," etc. These entries contain brief historical overviews of obesity in various countries, obesity studies, and/or obesity prevention strategies. The appendix in Volume 2 has a section addressing the prevalence (according to the World Health Organization) of obesity in males and females by country. In addition to a glossary and an index at the back of both volumes, the encyclopedia also features a reader's guide-in the front of Volume 1-that assists readers in finding articles by category or theme (e.g., ethnicity/race, children, social influences and outcomes, new research frontiers). Volume 1 also contains an explanation of the body mass index (BMI) and the BMI table. Although there are bibliographies at the end of entries, multiple references are lumped together in paragraph form, which may make it hard for some readers to distinguish among them. Since the bibliographies are not extensive, this encyclopedia would have benefited from including additional resources for patrons wanting more information. BOTTOM LINE Dana K. Cassell and David H. Gleaves's Encyclopedia of Obesity and Eating Disorders (Facts On File, 2006, 3d ed.) is geared more toward a general audience and libraries with smaller budgets. This work, featuring a reading level appropriate for high school audiences and above, is recommended for academic and public libraries." Library Journal Medicine Medicine eBook, SAGE Publications

Obesity is a serious health issue and is a key discussion and research area in many disciplines from the social sciences and physical education to the health sciences.

The editors have chosen topics that capture the current climate of obesity research, while still addressing and defining the core concepts related to this disease. Additionally, the majority of entries have been provided by experts from the medical and scientific research community. In many cases, entries are written by pioneering or premiere researchers in the topic at hand. This two-volume Encyclopedia provides a catalogue of entries from a variety of expert contributors from a vast array of disciplines, including molecular biology, psychology, medicine, public health and policy, food science, environmental health, pharmaceuticals, and many others to summarize pertinent topics in obesity, and related health conditions. Scholars, educators, researchers, physicians, and the general public will be able to access this resource for current, factual details on topics related to this growing epidemic.
