Proper formulation of diets for horses depends on adequate knowledge of their nutrient requirements. These requirements depend on the breed and age of the horse and whether it is exercising, pregnant, or lactating. A great deal of new information has been accumulated since the publication 17 years ago of the last edition of Nutrient Requirements of Horses. This new edition features a detailed review of scientific literature, summarizing all the latest information, and provides a new set of requirements based on revised data. Also included is updated information on the composition of feeds, feed additives, and other compounds routinely fed to horses. The effects of physiological factors, such as exercise, and environmental factors, such as temperature and humidity, are covered, as well. Nutrient Requirements of Horses also contains information on several nutritional and metabolic diseases that horses often have. Designed primarily as a reference, both practical and technical, Nutrient Requirements of Horses is intended to ensure that the diets of horses and other equids contain adequate amounts of nutrients and that the intakes of certain nutrients are not so excessive that they inhibit performance or impair health. This book is primarily intended for animal nutritionists, veterinarians, and other scientists; however, individual horse owners and managers will also find some of this material useful. Professors who teach graduate courses in animal nutrition will find Nutrient Requirements of Horses beneficial as a textbook.
This pH balanced diet can: Help body odor Fight cancer Prevent gout Relieve allergies and eczema Maintain healthy blood sugar levels (for diabetes) Clear acne And more! The normal body pH should be closely around 7.4. If the pH fluctuates too much from the ideal level, it becomes difficult for the various enzymes and the organs of the body to function properly, including the proper absorption of nutrients. pH Imbalance can kill you. You may also notice yourself getting sick a lot or experiencing body odor or, in extreme cases, developing diseases, including the formation of diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, and cancer. This dangerous shift from a slightly alkaline to an acidic state of the body is often due to consuming too much acid-producing foods. On the other hand, too much alkalinity is also bad for your health, since that leads to calcium deposits in the body, which causes joint and nerve pain, insomnia, and early morning stiffness. Ideally, a person needs to eat around 75 to 80 percent alkaline-forming foods and, at the most, 20 percent acid-producing foods. Maintaining the proper level of pH in the body is the key to a healthier you. So what are you waiting for? Make the change now. This book will teach you how to jump-start your body on a pH-balanced diet and reduce your chances of developing diseases. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nina Price.

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.

ALWAYS HUNGRY? will be both a relief and a revelation to many who struggle with weight. We´re not getting fat because we´re overeating; we´re overeating because we´re getting fat. In other words, what makes us constantly hungry, overweight, and undernourished is not a lack of will power, but a biological reaction to our present-day diet and lifestyle. Our fat cells are hoarding the nutrients from the food we eat instead of releasing them into the bloodstream to be used, triggering a starvation response that sets us up for failure: if we eat more, we´ll gain weight; if we eat less, we´ll slow our metabolism down and (again) gain weight. HELP! ALWAYS HUNGRY shows us how to break out of this cycle that is keeping us overweight. It helps us to: - re-programme our fat cells - tame humger - boost our metabolism - lose weight In a clear, compassionate, and authoritative voice, Dr Ludwig debunks the calorie myth that losing weight is simply a matter of eating less. He explains the science and the research behind our epidemic of overweightness and presents a detailed, highly structured plan to help us conquer the cravings.
This text explores the most recent advances in research on adaptations and responses to the physical environment among the major plant groups found in tropical ecosystems. Fundamental processes provide the organizational framework for the book. Its four main sections include: i) acquisition, transport and loss of water, ii) carbon acquisition and regulation of photosynthetic gas exchange, iii) nutrient acquisition and use, iv) energy balance and adaptation to temperature extremes.Concise but informative explanations of fundamental concepts at the beginning of each chapter allow those not familiar with the specialized terminology to grasp the nuances of each topic before becoming immersed in the more detailed analyses processes and case studies that follow. The book ends by suggesting that the bewildering plant species diversity in tropical ecosystems does not necessarily reflect an intractable range of physiological diversity. Täglich werden in Europa tausende mikrobiologische Analysen durchgeführt, besonders zur Überwachung der Qualität von Lebensmitteln, Trinkwasser oder Badegewässern. Um Proben und Messergebnisse im gesamten europäischen Raum vergleichen und austauschen zu können, sind einheitliche Qualitätsstandards Voraussetzung. Diese wurden in verschiedenen EU-Projekten erarbeitet und unterstützt von der Europäischen Kommision in entsprechenden Richtlinien formuliert. Dabei wurde die EN 45001 zugrunde gelegt (nun ersetzt durch die Norm ISO/IEC 17025 ´´Allgemeine Anforderungen an die Kompetenz von Prüf- und Kalibrierlaboratorien´´). Insbesonders gehören dazu: zuverlässige Referenzmaterialien, anerkannte Mess- und Auswertmethoden sowie validierte Abläufe von der Probennahme bis zur Dokumentation der Ergebnisse. Mit den nun auch in Deutsch vorliegenden Anleitungen kann jedes Untersuchungslabor ein Qualitätssicherungssystem implementieren.
