9780123738912: Beer in Health and Disease Prevention

Presenting both the concerns and problems of beer consumption as well as the emerging evidence of benefit, "Handbook of Beer Health and Disease Prevention" offers a balanced view of today's findings and the potential of tomorrow's research. From a beverage of warriors to a cheap and affordable commodity, beer has been a part of our consumption for nearly 8000 years. Like most alcoholic drinks, it has been prone to abuse and in some counties the per capita consumption of beer has led to considerable health risks. However, just as wine in moderation has been proposed to promote health, research is showing that beer - and the ingredients in beer - can have similar impact on improving health, and in some instances preventing disease. For example, some cancers like bladder cancers and the incidence of cardiovascular disease are reported to be lower in moderate beer drinkers. Furthermore there is a considerable body of emerging evidence to show that the anti-oxidant capacity of beers is high. It has been argued by some that the total antioxidants ingested in some beer drinkers equates that consumed by red wine drinkers. The key to this, of course, is understanding and this volume presents a collection of the most current writings on the subject of beer and it's potential in health. It is winner of the 2009 Best Drinks and Health Book in the World - Gourmand World Cookbook Awards. It offers the most comprehensive coverage of the broad range of topics related to the role of beer and beer ingredients in health. It addresses the impact of beer and beer ingredients on cancers, cardiovascular disease, anti-oxidant benefits, and other health related concerns. It presents a holistic view from beer brewing to the isolation of beer-related compounds. It is appropriate for scientists and researchers from a variety of fields and industries from beer production to health-care professionals. Consistent organization of each chapter provides easy-access to key points and summaries. Self-contained chapters of this title are written by subject matter experts.

Review:

"Beer in Health and Disease Prevention serves an important function by righting the bias toward wine as the only healthy alcoholic beverage. The book is a massive 1,100 page compendium with 103 chapters by many international distinguished contributors. There are too many excellent entries to cite them individually. Suffice it to say that the book is packed with data in readable form. A strong and useful feature is the inclusion at the end of each chapter of a detailed list of summary points. Overall, this volume splendidly fulfils the stated mission. Dr. Preedy deserves congratulations for undertaking and completing a monumental undertaking. It will be of interest and value to scientists in a number of disciplines and to interested nonscientists." - Arthur L. Klatsky, Kaiser Permanente Medical Care Program, in AMERICAN JOURNAL OF HUMAN BIOLOGY "Each chapter is well laid out with an abstract summarizing the chapter, a list of abbreviations and at the end of each chapter there are succinct summary points. This reviewer highly recommends this reference book and believes that it is very good value for the price." - Inge Russell, Ph.D., D.Sc., FIBiol, FIBD, JOURNAL OF THE INSTITUTE OF BREWING "Although a large part of the book is dedicated to 'beer in terms of health and disease prevention' as the title states, the content also encompasses areas such as beer analysis methodology, beer drinking patterns and beer production. This reviewer highly recommends this reference book and believes that it is very good value for the price."--The Journal of the Institute of Brewing
