It is now widely accepted that there are important links between inactivity and lifestyle-related chronic diseases, and that exercise can bring tangible therapeutic benefits to people with long-term chronic conditions. Exercise and Chronic Disease: An Evidence-Based Approach offers the most up-to-date survey currently available of the scientific and clinical evidence underlying the effects of exercise in relation to functional outcomes, disease-specific health-related outcomes and quality of life in patients with chronic disease conditions. Drawing on data from randomized controlled trials and observational evidence, and written by a team of leading international researchers and medical and health practitioners, the book explores the evidence across a wide range of chronic diseases, including: cancer heart disease stroke diabetes parkinson's disease multiple sclerosis asthma. Each chapter addresses the frequency, intensity, duration and modality of exercise that might be employed as an intervention for each condition and, importantly, assesses the impact of exercise interventions in relation to outcomes that reflect tangible benefits to patients. No other book on this subject places the patient and the evidence directly at the heart of the study, and therefore this book will be essential reading for all exercise scientists, health scientists and medical professionals looking to develop their knowledge and professional practice.

Exercise and Disease reviews the role of exercise and physical fitness in the prevention or causation of cancer. Relevant mechanistic studies, particularly immunomodulation, are emphasized. The book also interprets effects of long-term exercise on immune functions and data that shows how exercise influences disease resistance. On the other hand, exercise may be involved in immune mediated motion injuries. Finally, exercise plays a potential role in cancer therapy. The book will be useful to researchers interested in the most recent developments and their interpretations.

This detailed book explores protocols with the aim of testing aerobic exercise, resistance training, special diets, additives and natural products, which have led to new insights into the physiological and molecular aspects of health and disease. Many of these approaches have contributed to significant improvements in disease areas such as cardiovascular disease, cognitive dysfunction, diabetes, frailty, gliobastoma, metabolic syndrome, obesity, oxidative stress, and various cancers. This collection also provides important information on disease mechanisms and novel drug targets as each protocol is presented in the context of specific chronic diseases or different therapeutic areas. Written for the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials, step-by-step, readily reproducible protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and reflective of research from all around the globe, Physical Exercise and Natural and Synthetic Products in Health and Disease serves as an ideal guide for researchers in the areas of chronic disease, exercise, and nutrition, as well as to clinical scientists, physicians, and pharmacologists as it gives insights into possibilities for the development of novel therapeutics and the means of monitoring therapeutic response through the measurement of molecular and physiometric biomarkers.

Exercise and diet are key factors in the etiology and prevention of chronic disease. While most books on chronic disease have a decided clinical approach, Diet, Exercise, and Chronic Disease: The Biological Basis of Prevention brings together the latest cellular- and molecular-based research on the etiology of chronic diseases and the impact of various aspects of diet and exercise on the causal mechanisms. By focusing on cellular biology, details of the integrative nature of the many different underlying factors are revealed—details that are not evident with the prevailing clinical approach to chronic disease. This book highlights chronic diseases that are major causes of mortality, and which have sufficient molecular evidence for dietary and activity-related components to their etiology. Individual chapters examine the role of diet and exercise in diabetes, atherosclerosis, osteoporosis, cancer, and neurodegenerative disease. They cover aspects such as disease etiology, effects of diet and exercise, and the cellular and molecular mechanisms of how various dietary components and repeated exercise alter disease etiology to contribute to disease prevention. Since inflammatory signaling is a fundamental component of the chronic diseases discussed, the book includes a separate chapter on inflammation and innate immune responses. Obesity as a contributing factor is addressed within the specific disease chapters. The book also reviews what is known about the factors that influence food intake in humans. This reference translates molecular-based data on etiology and prevention into a clinical prescription for the prevention of chronic disease.

The aim of this volume is to underline that promoting physical activity is crucial to preventing illness and maintaining our health, thus leading to a reduction in healthcare costs. Over the last decade studies have shown that physical exercise plays an important role in maintaining an individual's psycho-physical balance. Physical activity therefore helps in tackling today's major health challenges, including diabetes, high blood pressure, and cardiorespiratory diseases.

What is the role of exercise in maintaining good health and preventing metabolic disease, hypertension, cardiorespiratory disease, cancer, and obesity? What is the optimal exercise level to prevent such common diseases and conditions? These important questions were addressed and discussed by researchers, therapists, and physicians at the international symposium "Optimal Exercise for Preventing Common Diseases," held in Fukuoka, Japan, in July 1998, in conjunction with the Fukuoka University Research Center. This book compiles the papers presented at the symposium, giving state-of-the-art information that will be especially valuable to exercise physiologists, physical therapists, and those working in the field of sports medicine.

This book examines the new knowledge that has been gained from the objective monitoring of habitual physical activity by means of pedometers and accelerometers. It reviews current advances in the technology of activity monitoring and details advantages of objective monitors relative to physical activity questionnaires. It points to continuing gaps in knowledge, and explores the potential for further advances in the design of objective monitoring devices. Epidemiologists have studied relationships between questionnaire assessments of habitual physical activity and various medical conditions for some seventy years. In general, they have observed positive associations between regular exercise and good health, but because of inherent limitations in the reliability and accuracy of physical activity questionnaires, optimal exercise recommendations for the prevention and treatment of disease have remained unclear. Inexpensive pedometers and accelerometers now offer the epidemiologist the potential to collect relatively precisely graded and objective information on the volume, intensity and patterns of effort that people are undertaking, to relate this data to past and future health experience, and to establish dose/response relationships between physical activity and the various components of health. Such information is important both in assessing the causal nature of the observed associations and in establishing evidence-based recommendations concerning the minimal levels of daily physical activity needed to maintain good health.
