Book details the nutrition-based health of animals including information on health, genome, mycotoxins and immune systems. For vets, students and producers.
Food of animal origin is a high-quality product for human nutrition (energy and protein) and also an important source of various other nutrients (amino acids, trace elements and vitamins). A successful maintenance and development of the animal production industry will depend upon the ability to manage animal health since large volumes of low cost food can only be produced from healthy animals.
In this book, which is the third by Clifford A. Adams, strategies of health maintenance and disease avoidance are developed through the judicious application of nutricines (bioactive components such as carotenoids, enzymes, fatty acids, flavours, etc.) and nutrients (carbohydrates, fats, proteins, minerals and vitamins) in animal feeds.
An overview of the significance of feed components and animal health; nature of feeds, nutricines and functional foods, external and internal functions of feed and food are presented in Chapter 1. The influence of nutrition on the genome and gene expression is discussed in Chapter 2. Chapter 3 deals with feed pathogen interactions and management of enteric diseases. Various nutricines are able to modify the microflora in the gastrointestinal tract with positive health benefits. Feed mycotoxins interactions are discussed in Chapter 4. After presentation of some details on the gastrointestinal integrity (Chapter 5), nutrition and the immune system is discussed in Chapter 6 and oxidative stress is addressed in Chapter 7. These three chapters deal all with feed host interactions. In Chapter 8, feed intake and health assessment is covered, and at the end of the book some general conclusions are offered in Chapter 9.
The various chapters reflect the knowledge and influences of nutrition on animal health today and it is a valuable textbook and reference work, which is certainly very useful for research workers, advanced students and advisors in animal nutrition.
This book is welcome, because it is very important for the future to consider nutritional strategies for health maintenance and disease avoidance. It is obviously important for producers and consumers, that large volumes of low cost food could be produced only from healthy animals. The last sentence of the preface from Clifford A. Adams NUTRITION IS ALL THERE IS is very proper.

Dr. Adams, originally from the UK, received his doctorate from the University of Illinois, USA and subsequently spent almost 25 years at Nutritional Services Director with a feed additive producer in Belgium. During this time he developed various nutritional strategies. These included; the concept of nutricines or bioactive feed ingredients, the Total Nutrition programme and the Nutrition-Based Health approach to animal production. These nutritional strategies were published by Nottingham University Press in the UK.
He has established his own company, ANOZENE Nutritional Sciences, based in Belgium, where he continues his research and writing in the development of nutritional strategies for humans and animals. There is a particular interest in the relationship between nutrition and health and the Nutrition-based Health concept is now being further developed for application in human nutrition.
