Genetically modified organisms or GMOs as it is called is when they alter the DNA of a fruit or vegetable. These experiments are done to increase yield or to make yield better. But there is no scientific proof that they are better or even safe. Only time will tell at a future date. Gluten is a protein that is found in wheat, rye, and barley. There are some people who have gluten intolerance. Gluten aggravates and causes inflammation in the small intestines of people suffering from celiac disease. These people need to have a diet that is gluten free. There are many products which are gluten free and finding an alternative should not be a major problem. Many of the vegetables, fruits, and dairy products are found gluten free. Many people are turning to this new diet. If you plan to start a gluten free diet, it is advisable to consult your doctor. Going vegetarian is quite a common thing these days. These vegetarians stick on to only vegetables, avoiding meat from their diet. We need to learn more about what is vegan. Vegan is a step ahead of being a vegetarian. They not only avoid eating meat, but they also avoid eating or using anything from the animal kingdom. They do not even consume milk, eggs or any dairy products. They look into all the details of the ingredients before buying a product. Bread, marshmallows, chewing gums, salad dressing, mayonnaise all of which contain some animal products that are not consumed by vegans. They are very strict about their diet. Their doctrine is saying No cruelty to animals. Many of the processed foods, sauces, ketchup, salad dressings, cereals, and crackers contain artificial sweeteners. These are very similar to our table sugar. But they are quite harmful to the body if taken in excess over a long period of time. Either sugar or any artificial sweetener in excess will cause obesity or even lead to diabetes. Large fructose corn syrup is an artificial sweetener that is applied in most of the prepared foods. As far as possible avoid using it. Try to maintain a healthy diet. If you plan to start a vegan diet or a gluten-free diet, see that you find suitable alternatives to get the needed minerals and vitamins for your body.

This book brings together a selection of studies written by specialists from universities and/or research institutions from every continent. The processes of change in systems of production, commercialisation, and consumption of food, as well as the problems and nutritional habits analysed here, develop within the framework of the technological and socio-productive transformations experienced in many parts of the world as a consequence of the transition from traditional rural societies to the predominantly urban and industrial societies of our time. Many of these societies are affected by the fluctuations, questions, or socio-economic uncertainties caused principally by what is named globalisation. The authors involved in this volume are from a variety of backgrounds and their theoretical-analytical focuses regarding eating habits are quite diverse. However, independent of their different perspectives and scientific disciplines (Anthropology, Communication, Economy, Marketing, Medicine, Nursing, Psychology and Sociology), all of these authors are united in their concerns regarding similar food processes and problems, such as the industrialisation of food production, junk food, fast food, eating disorders, overeating, obesity, the impacts of ideal body images on eating behaviours, lifestyles and feeding, anorexia, bulimia, organic foods, healthy foods, functional foods, and so on. Moreover, in a time shaped by a worldwide standardisation of eating habits, the search for identity, specificity, or distinction through the acquisition and consumption of foods is commonplace in many chapters of the book. Likewise, these chapters show a generalised interest on the negative effects of the advertising and communications media that often drive patterns of food consumption and provoke desires for ideals of beauty and body forms prejudicial to health. As the editor states in the preface, all this occurs in an ever more modernised and globalised world in which artificial procedures of the production of industrial foods that are quite opaque to the general public become increasingly widespread. In such a world, while people's concerns over the healthiness of foods increase, we are witnessing a non-stop expansion of markets for organic food, as well as the repeated manipulation of growing consumers' preferences for certain foodstuffs that they believe are healthy or have specific natural qualities. This manipulation frequently takes place through a variety of advertisements that announce a series of industrial foods as supposedly possessing these qualities. Obviously, a priority objective of these and other advertising strategies is to increase sales in the agro-alimentary sector in a context of obvious over-production and over-supply, which in turn is translated into the stimulation of food consumption. This would help explain such developments in the current consumer society, which is explored in further detail in many chapters of this book.

In the last few years, researchers around the world have increasingly reported the importance of acid-alkaline balance. The Acid-Alkaline Food Guide was designed as an easy-to-follow guide to the most common foods that influence your body's pH level. Now in its Second Edition, this bestseller has been expanded to include many more domestic and international foods. Updated information also explores (and refutes) the myths about pH balance and diet, and guides the reader to supplements that can help the body achieve a healthy pH level.
