Researchers say that vitamin D may slow breast cancer progression in both early and advanced stages of the disease. They are unsure why vitamin D has a positive effect, and the researchers say that they are not sure whether the low levels of vitamin D among those with the advanced disease are a cause or consequence of the cancer itself.

This study involved 279 women with invasive breast cancer. Of those cases, 204 were in the early stage and 75 were advanced. Serum levels of vitamin D, parathyroid hormone, and calcium were measured in both groups of women.
They found that women with early stage disease had significantly higher levels of serum vitamin D. They also had significantly lower levels of parathyroid hormone than did the women with advanced disease. There was little difference in calcium levels between the two groups.

It is not known whether vitamin D treatments will boost the activity of key genes and dampen others. They did find that the p21 gene was boosted. This gene is important in controlling the cell cycle. The authors believe that low levels of vitamin D may therefore promote progression to advanced disease.

Parents dictate their children’s future... statistics show us parents are failing at encouraging their children to have healthy lifestyles. Studies have shown that it is the responsibility of parents to provide guidance and inspiration for their children to pursue healthy and active lives. Poor nutrition and a lack of daily exercise have been the leading causes of the rise in health problems and the decrease in academic achievement amongst children. In addition, children will develop emotional and psychological problems that will manifest throughout the rest of their lives. It’s a common understanding that you cannot put a price on one’s health, but when bad habits begin to lower the quality of life and you can quantify the result in lower income and increased medical costs, it becomes very real. Thus, demanding the need to find a solution.

Lamb and pears may appear to be a strange combination, but the reason they are chosen as part of a food allergy diet is because they are rarely indicated in allergies and are therefore relatively safe foods for most people with a food allergy to eat.

Often the best way to treat a food allergy is to avoid the food that causes the allergy altogether so a period of exclusion gives your body a chance to tell you which foods are making you ill and whether you react to one food or many foods.

An exclusion diet consists of eliminating one or more foods completely from the diet for a given period of time and then reintroducing foods one at a time to check for adverse reactions.

French researchers say that there is a link between the body mass index (BMI) and cognitive ability. Overweight middle-aged adults were at a higher risk for dementia, according to Maxime Cournot, MD. Cournot is a doctor with the Toulouse University Hospital and the National Institute of Health and Medical Research in Toulouse, France.

Cournot says that “A higher BMI in 1996 was also associated with a higher cognitive decline at follow-up in 2001.” She looked at the relationship between cognitive function in 2,223 healthy men and women in France through the use of four cognitive tests. The participants, who were between the ages of 32 and 62, were initially tested in 1996 and again five years later.
