Sodas are astonishing products. Little more than flavored sugar water, these drinks cost practically nothing to produce or buy yet have turned their makers - principally Coca-Cola and PepsiCo - into a multibillion-dollar industry with global recognition, distribution, and political power. Billed as "refreshing", "tasty", "crisp", and "the real thing", sodas also happen to be so well established to contribute to poor dental hygiene, higher calorie intake, obesity, and type 2 diabetes that the first line of defense against any of these conditions is to simply stop drinking them. Habitually drinking large volumes of soda not only harms individual health but also burdens societies with runaway health care costs. So how did products containing absurdly inexpensive ingredients become a multibillion-dollar industry and international brand icons while also having a devastating impact on public health? In Soda Politics, Dr. Marion Nestle answers this question by detailing all of the ways that the soft drink industry works overtime to make drinking soda as common and accepted as drinking water for adults and children. Dr. Nestle, a renowned food and nutrition policy expert and public health advocate, shows how sodas are principally miracles of advertising; Coca-Cola and PepsiCo spend billions of dollars each year to promote their sale to children, minorities, and low-income populations, in developing as well as industrialized nations. And once they have stimulated that demand, they leave no stone unturned to protect profits. That includes lobbying to prevent any measures that would discourage soda sales, strategically donating money to health organizations and researchers who can make the science about sodas appear confusing, and engaging in corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities to create goodwill and silence critics. Soda Politics follows the money trail wherever it leads, revealing how hard Big Soda works to sell as much 1. Language: English. Narrator: Pam Dougherty.

Age estimation is a current focus of forensic research. The assessment of age is useful in planning orthodontic and pedodontic treatment, in pediatric endocrinology, anthropology, archaeology, paleodontology, clinical dentistry, forensic medicine and forensic odontology. Its use is increasing in both civil and criminal proceedings and it also aids in the identification of age at death of a deceased individual in mass disasters and natural calamities. Age estimation is also providing valuable information when birth date is lacking or doubted as in people who provide inaccurate details of ages as in case of illegal immigrants. In certain communities the chronological age of living people bears significant importance regarding employment, marriage and social benefits. In this book an attempt has been made to present the various dental age estimation methods in adults published up to day. The approaches, the advantages and disadvantages of each technique are discussed.
Geriatric Dentistry or gerodontics is the delivery of dental care to older adults involving the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of problems associated with normal aging and age-related diseases as part of an interdisciplinary team with other health care professionals. Oral health is particularly important among the elderly, they are more succeptible to systemic conditions, making themn predisposed to malnutrition, altered communication, further susceptibilty to infectious diseases and diminished quality of life.
This book embraces the work I carried on for a Doctor of Philosophy in Dental Sciences degree at Faculty of Dentistry, University of British Columbia. It presents a systematic synthesis of the existing dental psychometric measures for oral health-related quality of life in old age, and appraises the validity of such measures in the light of their content and relevance, for example. It also reports on the use of written vignettes to prompt discussion of sensitive health topics among older adults gathered in focus groups. The groups were encouraged to evaluate and refine an existing model of oral health from their perspectives. As per the qualitative work, I pose my ideas around phenomenology, grounded theory and framework analysis. I conclude this book by discussing the implications and future directions of my work.
Behavioural dentistry is an interdisciplinary science. The objective of the science is to develop in a dental practitioner an understanding of the interpersonal social force that influences a patient's behaviour. Behaviour management is widely agreed to be a key factor in the care of children and adults. Indeed, if a patients behaviour in the dental surgery/office cannot be managed then it is difficult if not impossible to carry out any dental care that is needed. Behaviour management is therefore one of the corner stones of the speciality. To counter the difficulties faced while rendering treatment to patients, one should be aware of their psychology and should know how to modify or correct theirs as well as their parent's attitudes towards dentistry. So this library work is undertaken with the aim to understand the various pharmacological and non-pharmacological behaviour management techniques, thus enabling to manage patients in a better way.
