Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Refined Carbohydrate Foods and Disease: Some Implications of Dietary Fibre addresses the geographical distribution and historical emergence of the characteristically western diseases, which may be accounted for on a common dietary basis, particularly, on deficiency of dietary fiber. The book is divided into 10 parts, each with number of chapters focusing on relationship between disease and the environment; refined carbohydrate foods; various diseases of the large intestine; and other diseases that are associated with constipation, straining at stool, and refined carbohydrate foods. The book shows the role of refined carbohydrate foods as a significant cause of diseases, because it removes fiber, which has many unsuspected physiological functions. This reference is deemed to be useful to forge stronger links between epidemiologists and experimental workers.

Summary Book Review Western Diseases, Their Emergence and Prevention :

Download or read book Western Diseases, Their Emergence and Prevention written by Hubert Carey Trowell and published by Harvard University Press. This book was released on 1981 with total page 484 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In this major synthesis of cross-cultural research, 34 distinguished scientists study 25 common metabolic and degenerative diseases characteristic of all advanced Western nations and then examine their incidence in developing countries, among both hunter-gatherers and peasant agriculturalists. Thus the authors provide a unique opportunity to compare epidemiological data reflecting modern modes of life with data influenced by habits and diets dating back 400 generations to the advent of agriculture, and even 200,000 generations or more to the dawn of man. The results confirm the view that diseases like hypertension, lung cancer, diverticular disease, and appendicitis are maladaptations to environmental factors introduced since the Industrial Revolution. They also demonstrate that such diseases become more prevalent when Western lifestyles are adopted in primitive societies. Certain studies reveal a regression of disease incidence when exercise is increased and a diet high in starch and fiber, low in fat and salt, is resumed--characteristics of a simpler way of life. Western Diseases greatly broadens our perspective on some of the most vexing health problems in our society. It will be an essential reference for epidemiologists, nutritionists, and gastroenterologists in particular.

Book excerpt: 'Professor Rotberg has given students of African history a detailed and thoroughly documented study of the creation of Malawi and Zambia and much information on the formation and collapse of the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland. No other scholar has written so full and reliable an account of this recent and complex history. Rotberg had access to hitherto unused official archives and to private correspondence, sources that he supplemented by interviews with many of the European and African participants in the events of the last decades of a century of history. No one can read this story without being impressed by the dizzy speed of change in Africa.'-American Historical Review

Download or read book Culture And Common Mental Disorders In Sub-Saharan Africa written by Vickram Patel and published by Psychology Press. This book was released on 2013-10-31 with total page 128 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The influence of culture on mental illness has been the subject of considerable academic investigation and debate in recent years. This debate has provoked concerns about the validity and reliability of older methodologies which emphasised either universal characteristics of disorders which were heavily biased towards Euro-American systems, or the culturally relativist approach which saw psychological disorders as products largely of their own culture. The "new" cross-cultural psychiatry proposed that the integration of ethnographic and epidemiological techniques be required to enable a culture sensitive psychiatric model to emerge. This monograph describes a series of research studies conducted in primary care in Harare, Zimbabwe, focusing on the most frequent of all psychological disorders, Common Mental Disorders (CMD). The four consecutive studies are unique in several respects, most notably, the involvement of both biomedical and traditional health care providers at all stages, the development of an indigenous measure of CMD for use in epidemiological investigations, the examination of the relationship between local and biomedical models of psychological disorder and the sociodemographic and economic risk factors for CMD. The experiences and findings of these studies provide new directions in our understanding of the contribution of culture to the presentation, assessment, classification and risk factors for CMD in primary care in an urban African setting. The methodology used also sets out a model for epidemiological research in other areas of mental health in different cultural settings.

Download or read book Doctors and the State written by Dorothy Mutizwa-Mangiza and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2018-08-13 with total page 270 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Published in 1999, the main aim of this text is to examine the nature of professional control, medical practice and the state of health services in a post-colonial state and the medical profession in Zimbabwe since 1980. The text reviews the theories of professions and professional control and medical practice, it concludes by examining the nature of the Zimbabwean state. The chapter on methodology highlights some of the ethical dilemmas of carrying out research in developing countries. The book then goes on to review health services and policies of both the colonial and post-colonial governments in Zimbabwe. Three chapters discuss the nature of medical practice and the constraints encountered by doctors in their work, the terms and conditions of service under which doctors work, and the nature of medical regulation of education, licensing and discipline including issues such as malpractice and litigation. Throughout the book, comparisons are made with situations in other countries, both developed and developing, and the main conclusions of the book are that medical doctors in Zimbabwe have minimal administrative restrictions on the type of treatment which they can carry out but the unavailability and breakdown of essential equipment, shortages of essential drugs and staff limit the doctors' autonomy to carry out the treatment that they consider necessary.

Summary Book Review The African AIDS Epidemic :

Download or read book The African AIDS Epidemic written by John Iliffe and published by Ohio University Press. This book was released on 2005-02-15 with total page 210 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This history of the African AIDS epidemic is a much-needed, accessibly written historical account of the most serious epidemiological catastrophe of modern times. The African AIDS Epidemic: A History answers President Thabo Mbeki’s provocative question as to why Africa has suffered this terrible epidemic. While Mbeki attributed the causes to poverty and exploitation, others have looked to distinctive sexual systems practiced in African cultures and communities. John Iliffe stresses historical sequence. He argues that Africa has had the worst epidemic because the disease was established in the general population before anyone knew the disease existed. HIV evolved with extraordinary speed and complexity, and because that evolution took place under the eyes of modern medical research scientists, Iliffe has been able to write a history of the virus itself that is probably unique among accounts of human epidemic diseases. In giving the African experience a historical shape, Iliffe has written one of the most important books of our time. The African experience of AIDS has taught the world much of what it knows about HIV/AIDS, and this fascinating book brings into focus many aspects of the epidemic in the longer context of massive demographic growth, urbanization, and social change in Africa during the latter half of the twentieth century. The African AIDS Epidemic: A History is a brilliant introduction to the many aspects of the epidemic and the distinctive character of the virus.
