Abstract
Nutrition and Oral Medicine, Second Edition addresses the complex, multifaceted relationships between nutrition and oral health, explores proposed relationships between oral, systemic and nutritional well-being and provides insights into interprofessional, comprehensive care for individuals. Chapters focus on diet, nutrition and oral health promotion and disease prevention across the lifespan, oral and dental diseases and disorders, oral manifestations of systemic diseases, and discussions of the synergy between oral tissues and nutrients. Cutting edge research issues regarding the relationship of individual antioxidants, trace elements, polyphenols and other nutrient substrates and oral health/disease, nutrigenomics, screening for nutrition and oral risk and other areas are covered in detail. Editors and authors include experts in nutrition and oral health from around the world. Nutrition and Oral Medicine, Second Edition is a invaluable resource for health professionals in the fields of nutrition and dentistry as well as other disciplines whose research, practice and education includes nutrition and oral medicine. It is an excellent resource for graduate level nutrition and dental students, dental and nutrition practitioners, educators and researchers as well as other health professionals.

Abstract
This comprehensive text fulfills an unmet need for practitioners who treat patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) by providing data-driven advice concerning the implementation of nutritional interventions to CF patients from infancy to adulthood. Nutritional therapies have been key early interventions, and remain central to the well-being and survival of patients with cystic fibrosis. The nature of the disease causes significant alterations in a patient's ability to process and assimilate nutrients and contribute to higher metabolic demands throughout a patient's life. This volume provides an introduction to cystic fibrosis and nutritional assessments and serves as an extensive guide to the nutritional monitoring and management of patients with cystic fibrosis, including special populations within cystic fibrosis that require additional considerations. Unique chapters in this volume include nutrition assessments for adult and obese CF patients and four chapters on specific common co-morbidities for cystic fibrosis patients: pancreatic insufficiency, liver disease, gastrointestinal complications, and cystic fibrosis related diabetes mellitus. Written by experts in the field, Nutrition in Cystic Fibrosis is designed as a resource for physicians, nurses, dietitians and other medical providers who deliver care for patients with cystic fibrosis.

Abstract
Alcohol, Nutrition, and Health Consequences provides practical, data-driven resources to help the reader understand the basics, treatments and preventive strategies that are involved in the understanding of how alcohol may affect healthy individuals as well as those with chronic alcohol use with or without relevant infectious diseases, obesity, diabetes and/or neurocognitive declines. It will also help the clinician define the causes and types of nutritional changes due to alcohol use and also explain how nutrition can be used to ameliorate its consequences. Chapters present the application of current nutritional knowledge by physicians and dietitians. Specific areas involving alcohol-related damage due to nutritional changes are reviewed, including heart disease, obesity, digestive tract cancers, lactation, brain function, and liver disease. In addition, alcohol's effects on absorption of minerals and nutrients, a key role in causing damage are treated. The importance of diet in modifying alcohol and its metabolite damage is also explained. Alcohol, Nutrition, and Health Consequences is essential reading for alcohol therapists and researchers as well as primary care physicians and dietitians and is an easy reference to help the clinician, student, and dietitian comprehend the complex changes caused by direct and indirect effects of ethanol at the cellular level via its nutritional modification.
