Molecular Aspects of Alcohol and Nutrition is a valuable resource
for nutrition researchers and nutritionists who study or treat
alcohol-related diseases. Experts from across the field of alcohol
research explain how alcohol disrupts normal fat, carbohydrate, and
protein metabolic processes occurring in the liver as well as other
parts of the body. The book discusses how this can lead to
alcoholic liver disease (ALD) as well as contribute to the onset of
Type 2 diabetes and the metabolic syndrome. It also explores how
alcohol affects nutrient absorption in the gastrointestinal tract
and can lead to anemia and reduced amounts of fat soluble vitamins.
This book explores both the primary and secondary consequences of
alcohol consumption. Chapters in the first section investigate the
basic science of alcohol metabolism - focusing on how alcohol and
its toxic metabolites disrupt and impair normal nutrient regulation
at the molecular level. Further chapters explore how alcohol
affects many extra-hepatic organs and tissues as well as the
secondary consequences of alcohol consumption such as reduced
levels of minerals like magnesium, calcium, and trace elements like
