Anti-Angiogenic Functional and Medicinal Foods
by Jack N. Losso

Anti-Angiogenic Functional and Medicinal Foods explores the history and scope of the use of conventional foods, nutraceuticals, and health products in North America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, India, Australia, and New Zealand.

Anti-Angiogenic Functional and Medicinal Foods illustrates the importance of recent "omics" technology and its implication on our understanding of nutrition and systemic function.

Explaining the role of angiogenesis in various chronic diseases, individual chapters consider endothelial cell responses, the mechanism of the angiogenic cascade, and the angiogenic function involved in tumors, cardiovascular disease, inflammatory arthritis, and obesity.
