Nunca Galicia comercializou un produto con tanto éxito. Aínda que agora semelle un pesadelo afastado, na década de 1990 o oitenta por cento da cocaína desembarcaba en Europa polas costas galegas. Ademais da súa privilexiada posición xeográfica, Galicia dispuña de todos os ingredientes necesarios para se converter nunha «nova Sicilia»: atraso económico, unha centenaria tradición de contrabando e un clima de admiración e tolerancia cara a unha cultura delituosa herdada da época dos «inofensivos» e «benefactores» capos do tabaco. Os clans, poderosos e herméticos, medraron na impunidade afianzada grazas ao desleixo (e mesmo complicidade) da clase política e das forzas de seguridade. A través de testemuños directos de capos, pilotos de planadoras, arrepentidos, xuíces, policías, xornalistas e nais de toxicómanos, Nacho Carretero retrata con detalle unha paisaxe criminal con frecuencia infravalorada. No imaxinario popular, ese costumismo «kitsch» de capos con zocos e reloxos de ouro ensombreceu o potencial destrutivo dun fenómeno que arrasou o tecido social, económico e político de Galicia. «Fariña» inclúe, ademais, un repaso inédito polos clans que seguen operando hoxe en día. Porque en contra da crenza mediática e popular, o narcotráfico segue vivo en Galicia. E non se debe esquecer o que aínda non rematou.

Responding to the expansion of scientific knowledge about the roles of nutrients in human health, the Institute of Medicine has developed a new approach to establish Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDAs) and other nutrient reference values. The new title for these values Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs), is the inclusive name being given to this new approach. These are quantitative estimates of nutrient intakes applicable to healthy individuals in the United States and Canada. This new book is part of a series of books presenting dietary reference values for the intakes of nutrients. It establishes recommendations for energy, carbohydrate, fiber, fat, fatty acids, cholesterol, protein, and amino acids. This book presents new approaches and findings which include the following: The establishment of Estimated Energy Requirements at four levels of energy expenditure Recommendations for levels of physical activity to decrease risk of chronic disease The establishment of RDAs for dietary carbohydrate and protein The development of the definitions of Dietary Fiber, Functional Fiber, and Total Fiber The establishment of Adequate Intakes (AI) for Total Fiber The establishment of AIs for linolenic and a-linolenic acids Acceptable Macronutrient Distribution Ranges as a percent of energy intake for fat, carbohydrate, linolenic and a-linolenic acids, and protein Research recommendations for information needed to advance understanding of macronutrient requirements and the adverse effects associated with intake of higher amounts Also detailed are recommendations for both physical activity and energy expenditure to maintain health and decrease the risk of disease.

Organized by nutrient, this evidence-based reference synthesizes all of the most current research on vitamins and minerals in an easy-to-use format. Each chapter addresses the function the nutrient plays in the human body; current definitions of deficiency, including Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) or Adequate Intake (AI) recommendations; the use of the nutrient for prevention or treatment of a disease, if known; dietary and other sources of the nutrient, including food and supplement sources (breaking down the different supplement forms); safety precautions for overdosing and drug interactions; and the Linus Pauling Institute's current recommendation for health maintenance. Each chapter has been reviewed by an expert in the area, all of whom are noted in the Editorial Advisory Board. This work is endorsed by the Linus Pauling Institute of Oregon State University. Four appendices add to the clinical usefulness of this work: a quick reference to disease prevention and treatment recommendations made throughout the text, nutrient - nutrient interactions, drug - nutrient interactions, and a glossary.
