A study of 2,300 Italians dietary habits found a relationship between high bread eating and renal cell carcinoma. The researchers warn that pasta and rice could also increase the risk and at the same time eating more vegetables could lower a persons risk for this particular type of kidney cancer. The study was first published online in the October 20th edition of the International Journal of Cancer.

The most common kind of kidney cancer is renal cell carcinoma (RCC). Previously researchers found that diet may have contributed to an increased risk for developing renal cell carcinoma. They did not know which foods directly contributed to this increase which has spurred this new study led by Francesca Bravi of the Institute of Pharmacological Research "Mario Negri" in Milan who conducted a large case-controlled study of 2,301 Italians to determine which foods might increase a person’s risk.

Nutrition from fruits and vegetables containing fisetin helped improve long-term memory for healthy mice. Researchers from the Salk Institute for Biological Studies first reported a study in memory and nutrition with mice in this week's Online Early Edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Fisetin is a flavonoid that is found in strawberries and also found in other fruits and vegetables. Other foods containing fisetin include tomatoes, onions, oranges, apples, peaches, grapes, kiwifruit and persimmons. Researchers studied how eating fisetin helped improve the memory of healthy mice in hopes for finding another way to prevent the onset of Alzheimer’s disease.

Benefits Of Eating Fish Outweigh Risk – New Study Recommends Moderate Consumption Of Seafood – List of Fish and Mercury Levels

Benefits Of Eating Fish Outweigh Risk – New Study Recommends Moderate Consumption Of Seafood – List of Fish and Mercury Levels

Storey

Researchers say that the health benefits of eating fish outweigh the risks. Because of the mercury found in fish, there has been a debate as to whether the nutritional benefits offset the danger. Today The National Academy of Sciences released a White Paper saying that there is an overall benefit.

Dr. Maureen Storey, a University of Maryland expert and director of the Center for Food, Nutrition and Agriculture Policy (CFNAP), says “The government’s communication strategy on the risks and benefits of eating fish has not worked. People are confused. What has been lost in the emphasis on risk from mercury for some sub-populations, such as pregnant women, is the fact that many types of fish, especially those high in omega-3 fatty acids, have significant health benefits. People lose out on those benefits if they decrease fish consumption because they’re getting a mixed message.”

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.
