Diet & Bowel Health (2012)

6 Pages | 3.39 M |

Digestive and bowel health is an important public health issue in Australia. We have an ageing population and increasing levels of digestive health problems, including colorectal cancer (CRC), Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and malabsorption and malnutrition. Colorectal Cancer Colorectal cancer remains the most common cancer in Australia with 30 new patients diagnosed every day. 4 out of 5 patients have no recognizable risk factors. Prof Terry Bolin stated that diet is important and it seems likely that fibre and particularly, resistant starch intake, influence the genesis of CRC. He referred to the low incidence of CRC in Africa and Asia where starch intake is high. To further its commitment to improving the digestive health of Australians, Bürgen® Rye initiated an Expert Roundtable discussion, held at CSIRO (Food Futures Centre), Sydney on 12 October 2011. The aim of the full day meeting was to assess the current advice and provide evidence-based,

Why and How People Change Health Behaviors Why and How People Change Health Behaviors Introduction Why and How People Change Health Behaviors presents stories from indi- viduals who have made successful lifestyle behavior changes and maintained them for a significant period of time. The intention of the book is three- fold: 1) to help those who have not yet made positive behavior changes by providing motivation and insight, 2) to assist those who are currently attempting a lifestyle change, and 3) to serve as a source of hope and support for those who have tried and have experienced failures in the past. The evidence continues to mount that health behaviors have perhaps the single greatest influence on our health, and thus ultimately our lives. Most people who are not practicing healthy behaviors know they should change, but don’t exactly know how. A significant amount of research has been conducted on
