Summary: Bioactive Food as Dietary Interventions for the Aging Population presents scientific evidence of the impact bioactive foods can have in the prevention and mediation of age related diseases. Written by experts from around the world, this volume provides important information that will not only assist in treatment therapies, but inspire research and new work related to this area. Focuses on the role of bioactive foods in addressing chronic conditions associated with aging and senescence. Important information for developing research on this rapidly growing population representing an increasingly significant financial burden. Documents foods that can affect metabolic syndrome and ways the associated information could be used to understand other diseases, which share common etiological pathways.
