Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This book is meant to empower the general consumer with knowledge about DNA testing for predisposition to diseases or for deep maternal and paternal ancestry when written records are absent. At home-genetic testing needs watchdogs, Web sites, and guidebooks to interpret test results in plain language for those with no science background. Online, you'll find genetic tests for ancestry or for familial (genetic, inherited) disease risks. What helpful suggestions do general consumers with no science background need to consider? What's new in medical marketing is genetic testing online for predisposition to diseases-such as breast cancer or blood conditions. Kits usually are sent directly to the consumer who returns a mouthwash or swab DNA sample by mail. What type of training do healthcare teams need in order to interpret the results of these tests to consumers? Once you receive the results of online genetic testing kits, how do you interpret it? If your personal physician isn't yet trained to interpret the results of online genetic tests, how can you find a healthcare professional that is trained?

The Therapeutic  Nutritional And Cosmetic Properties Of Donkey Milk
Author: Paolo Polidori
Publisher: Cambridge Scholars Publishing
Release Date: 2019-09-25
Pages: 163
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This book explores the potential beneficial health effects of donkey milk, and provides valid scientific evidence for a better appraisal of this product. Milk is the most complete natural food available and is a basic ingredient of the human diet for both children and adults. Milk produced by all mammals contains basically the same nutrients, but considering the differences in nutritional requirements, milk’s chemical composition differs in each mammalian species. The use of donkey milk in human nutrition has been known from the Roman age. Recent clinical trials have tested it as a possible replacement for dairy cows milk in infants affected by cow milk protein allergy. The results have clearly demonstrated that donkey milk’s chemical and nutritional properties are very similar to those determined in human milk. This book will appeal to pediatricians, allergists, and nutritionists, as well as farmers and veterinarians.
