Abstract
LÇÖabuso di sostanze pu©ø essere alla base di un gran numero di patologie e disturbi psichiatrici, e viene classificato tra i primi quattro fattori di rischio che contribuiscono al carico di malattia globale. Una situazione di dipendenza pu©ø infatti complicare un quadro psichiatrico gi©á difficile, poich© si sovrappone ad altri disturbi e talvolta ne prende le forme, rendendo ancora pi©£ ardua la valutazione del paziente. Individuare con precisione un disturbo da abuso di sostanze pu©ø facilitare la diagnosi clinica, evitare test non necessari e abbreviare la durata del ricovero. Questo volume costituisce una guida pratica e concisa rivolta agli studenti, ai medici e ad altre figure professionali che si confrontano con la moderna medicina della dipendenza. Illustrando una vasta gamma di evidenze, metodi e soluzioni per la gestione del paziente con dipendenza, questa guida fornisce gli strumenti e le conoscenze di base utili a una pratica clinica rapida ed efficace in questo campo.

Abstract
Le bevande analcoliche, e specificamente le bevande dolci, sono spesso considerate responsabili (assieme ai cosiddetti "fast food") dell'epidemia di soprappeso ed obesit©á che si osserva nel mondo occidentale. In realt©á, le evidenze disponibili nella letteratura scientifica non permettono di definire con precisione il ruolo di queste bevande nel determinare l'aumento di peso: e soprattutto non permettono di differenziarne il contributo dal complesso dello stile alimentare e di vita tipico delle societ©á moderne, caratterizzato da un dispendio energetico molto ridotto e da un apporto calorico complessivamente elevato. La tendenza a sviluppare soprappeso ed obesit©á, tra l'altro, poggia probabilmente su un solido substrato genetico che ne favorisce la comparsa in presenza di una ricca disponibilit©á di cibo. L'aumento dell'attivit©á fisica ed una moderazione responsabile nell'apporto di alimenti e bevande rappresenta la strategia migliore per controllare il fenomeno dell'obesit©á nella nostra societ©á.
Contents
Libert©á della persona e diritto-dovere alla salute -- Nutrizione e salute nel mondo moderno: focus sulle bevande dolci (soft drink) -- Psicologia e consumo delle bevande analcoliche: normalit©á e patologia -- Analisi socioculturale del consumo di soft drink: fra polarizzazione e integrazione dei modelli di riferimento.
