Summary

The Lighter Side of Finland is celebrating its 22nd anniversary. The idea was to examine the Finnish culture and society through humor and facts. We believe this idea was a success, so every few years the book has been updated and revised to keep up with an ever-changing Finland. 
Finland is celebrating its 100-year anniversary of becoming an independent nation. It was a long, difficult struggle to achieve freedom, but it finally came in 1917. During the years that followed, the new country faced problems, threats and downfalls. It also observed times of development, progress and prosperity. And now, Finland has been acclaimed by researchers and journalists as an excellent place to live, work, do business and raise a family. 
We hope the 6th edition of The Lighter Side of Finland will bring you laughter, entertainment and enlightenment.

    It is the 23rd Century. Across the cold void of space, alien monsters prey on humanity: infesting generation-ships, destroying colonies, and transforming humans into hosts for their foul spoor. From the insectoid hive-beasts of Klaatu, to the xenomorphic parasites of the outer rim, this book contains the sum total of human knowledge of the myriad forms of alien menace; where to find them…and how to kill them. In this guide you will find details of mankind's greatest champions, the marines of STAR Industries. With their state-of-the-art technology and advanced combat tactics developed over a century of warfare, the STAR marines battle the alien, wherever it may strike.

    We have to improve the strength of chemotherapeutic drugs in cancer treatments. On the other hand, these agents have many serious side effects. Although there has been no diet for the patients with cancer, media and authorities still continue to define a clich nutrition program consisting of green leafy vegetables, fish meat, fruits, and olive oil. This clich nutrition may help to protect the healthy consumers against cancer, but the nutrition program or diet changes when it comes to the consumers with cancer. Such a nutrition program can only be designed by evaluating and analyzing the antagonisms and synergisms of the anticancer drug administered and the active food compounds in each food. Only after these detailed evaluations could a nutrition program, which is specific for only the administered anticancer drug, can be designed. The book, which addressed more than three thousand studies in cancer nutrition and screened from Science Direct, CrossRef, Google, and PubMed databases, is a first step to meet this important demand of oncologists, nurses, dietitians, food scientists, and patients with cancer while it is the most detailed review in cancer nutrition currently.
