The New Science Behind America’s Deadliest Diseases – Yahoo! Finance [ReBlogged]


The New Science Behind America’s Deadliest Diseases – Yahoo! Finance.

What do heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, stroke and cancer have in common? Scientists have linked each of these to a condition known as chronic inflammation, and they are studying how high-fat foods and excess body weight may increase the risk for fatal disorders.

Inflammation is the body’s natural response to injury and outside irritants. But when the irritants don’t let up, because of a diet of high-fat foods, too much body fat and smoking, for example, the immune system can spiral out of control and increase the risk for disease. Experts say when inflammation becomes chronic it can damage heart valves and brain cells, trigger strokes, and promote resistance to insulin, which leads to diabetes. It also is associated with the development of cancer.

Much of the research on chronic inflammation has focused on fighting it with drugs, such as cholesterol-lowering statins for heart disease. A growing body of research is revealing how abdominal fat and an unhealthy diet can lead to inflammation. Some scientists are investigating how certain components in foods might help. Dietary fiber from whole grains, for instance, may play a protective role against inflammation, a recent study found. And dairy foods may help ease inflammation in patients with a combination of risk factors.The Wall Street Journal

Chronic inflammation is perhaps best understood in its relation to cardiovascular disease. The immune system’s white blood cells rush to the arteries when the blood vessels are besieged by low density lipoprotein, or LDL—the “bad” cholesterol. The cells embed themselves in the artery wall and gobble up the invading cholesterol, causing damage to the arteries that can lead to heart attack or stroke.

“You need to have inflammation when you have a wound and the immune system goes in to heal it. Yet we don’t want too much inflammation in our system causing damage to our arteries” and other harm, says Wendy Weber, a program director at the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, part of the National Institutes of Health.

One significant discovery concerns obesity and the ways it promotes inflammation. Fat cells, particularly those in the visceral fat that settles in the belly and around organs, were long thought merely to store excess weight. Instead, fat cells act like small factories to churn out molecules known as cytokines, which set inflammation in motion, says Peter Libby, chief of the division of cardiovascular medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston and a professor at Harvard Medical School.

“We’ve learned that abdominal fat tissue is a hotbed of inflammation that pours out all kinds of inflammatory molecules,” Dr. Libby says. The most important step patients can take is to lose excess weight, which can reduce inflammation in a matter of weeks or months, he says.

A substance known as C-reactive protein, measured with a simple blood test, is an indicator of inflammation in the body. A report published in Archives of Internal Medicine in 2007, which analyzed results of 33 separate studies, found that losing weight can lower C-reactive protein levels. For each one kilogram, or 2.2 pounds, of weight loss, whether by dieting, exercise or surgery, the mean reduction in C-reactive protein among participants was 0.13 milligram per liter.

According to the American Heart Association, a C-reactive protein level of less than 1 mg/L indicates a low risk of cardiovascular disease, 1 to 3 mg/L indicates moderate risk, and greater than 3 mg/L equals high risk. Doctors increasingly are ordering the test for patients at moderate risk for heart disease.

At a meeting in Quebec City last week on abdominal obesity and its health risks, experts in cardiology, endocrinology, nutrition and related specialties presented a wide range of new research linking obesity to inflammation-related diseases.

A number of nutritionists and physicians have developed anti-inflammatory diets. Christopher Cannon, a Harvard professor of medicine, co-wrote “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to the Anti-Inflammation Diet.” Dr. Cannon says his recommended diet is based on both the Mediterranean diet and a Healthy Eating Pyramid developed at Harvard University. This encourages consuming whole-grain foods, unsaturated fats such as plant oils, fruits, vegetables, nuts, fish, poultry, eggs and moderate amounts of dairy foods. It also suggests avoiding as much as possible red meat, butter, sweets and white foods such as rice, potatoes and pasta.

Still, there is little evidence to support any specific diet to protect against inflammation, says Dr. Cannon. “If you weigh 300 pounds and eat healthy, the weight will still counter any beneficial foods you are eating,” Dr. Cannon says.

The American Heart Association recommends consuming both omega-3 fatty acids, found in cold-water fish like salmon and canola oil, and omega-6 fatty acids, found in nuts, seeds and vegetable oils such as corn oil. But investigators are still studying the roles each may play in promoting or controlling inflammation.

In one study, researchers at Vanderbilt University are focusing on whether omega-3 fatty acids reduce the risk of colorectal cancers and diminish the production of inflammatory molecules. Principal investigator Harvey Murff says many Americans consume far more omega-6 fatty acids, and one aim is to determine a healthy balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.

Greater dietary fiber consumption was associated with lower levels of C-reactive protein and other markers in the blood that signal inflammation, according to a new study involving nearly 600 adolescents published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism. Norman Pollock, a researcher at Georgia Health Sciences University and a co-author of the study, says one explanation may be that fiber is associated with higher levels of a protein hormone that improves insulin sensitivity, which in turn lowers levels of inflammation.

A combination of nutrients found in dairy food may also help ease inflammation in patients at risk for heart disease, stroke and diabetes. In a 40-patient study published last year in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, patients who were given 3½ servings of dairy daily over 12 weeks showed reductions in several markers of inflammation compared with a group given just half a serving of dairy per day. The first group also showed reduced blood pressure. Michael Zemel, a co-author of the study and professor emeritus at the University of Tennessee’s Department of Nutrition, says three daily servings of dairy containing whey and its nutrients could help guard against inflammation. He recommends low-fat milk or yogurt.

New research funded by the National Institutes of Health is looking at the relationship of diet, inflammation and cancer.

“Cancer is caused by many different processes and inflammation is one of them, and if you could inhibit that process it would be tremendously helpful,” says Young S. Kim, program director in the Nutritional Science Research Group at the National Cancer Institute.

Foods to Eat to Maintain pH Balance

Foods to Eat to Maintain pH Balance

Maintaining the proper pH balance in your body may sound technical and difficult, but in reality, it is quite simple. First, understand that your body needs to maintain a slightly alkaline environment to survive and thrive. Then adjust your diet to eat more foods that have an alkaline effect on your body. This does not mean you should totally avoid acid producing foods, just limit them. Your diet should not cause your body to become too alkaline or too acidic. For pH, it’s all about balance.

Foods to eat to maintain pH balance include a certain amount of alkaline forming foods and a certain amount of acid forming foods. In general, you should aim for 75-80 percent alkaline forming foods and 20-25 percent acid forming foods. Pure, distilled water is typically neither acid forming nor alkaline forming.

Alkaline forming foods are mostly vegetables like asparagus, artichokes, lettuce, onion, peas, spinach, carrots, green beans, and broccoli, to name a few. Fruits include lemon, tomato, avocado, and grapefruit. Other alkaline forming foods are sprouts, legumes, nuts, seeds, herbal tea, and vegetable juice.

To maintain pH balance, you should eat a minimal amount of acid forming foods. Examples of acid forming foods are meats, poultry, most seafood, sweets, white bread, white pasta, chocolate, coffee, soda, fruit juice, and most oils. You don’t have to totally avoid eating these foods to maintain pH balance, but keep these foods within the 20-25 percent proportion of your diet.

Antioxidant Supplements Boost Brain Health And Help Prevent Alzheimer’s

Although occasional bouts of forgetfulness are jokingly referred to as “senior moments” and “old-timers disease,” the onset of dementia is no laughing matter for the five million Americans who suffer from Alzheimer’s.  The disease is named after Dr. Alois Alzheimer, who discovered it in 1906 during the autopsy of a woman in her 50s who had experienced memory loss, language problems and erratic behavior. He discovered plaques in her brain and also tangled bundles of brain fiber that are the unique hallmarks of the disorder.

Alzheimer’s is a progressive, heart-breaking disease, causing mild memory loss in the early stages and eventually robbing individuals of the ability to carry on a conversation or even perform mundane tasks such as feeding themselves or brushing their teeth.  One of the saddest aspects of Alzheimer’s is the emotional toll it takes on caregivers when they realize that their loved one no longer knows who they are. The disease is fatal and is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. The number of people with Alzheimer’s is expected to grow exponentially as the baby boomers enter their 60s and the number of  Alzheimer’s and dementia patients is expected to reach 16 million by 2050.

The good news is that Alzheimer’s and other dementia-related problems are not inevitable aspects of growing older. Recent studies have offered significant hope for natural methods of preventing and treating the disease. Antioxidant supplements have emerged as viable weapons in the fight against Alzheimer’s, especially those containing curcumin.

Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric and researchers believe it may help reduce the plaque formation that is associated with Alzheimer’s. The fact that India produces nearly all of the world’s turmeric (and consumes 80 percent of it) probably explains why many inflammatory diseases, such as Alzheimer’s are not as prevalent in that country. In fact, India has one of the lowest Alzheimer’s rates in the world. People who are born in India and move to Western countries do not enjoy the same low rates of Alzheimer’s. Researchers believe the traditional Indian diet, which contains large amounts of turmeric, plays a significant role in disease prevention.

Pain and Brain Plus is a brain-boosting nutritional supplement  that contains curcumin compounds that come together to form the most powerful antioxidant phytonutrients on the market. Pain and Brain Plus combines five nutrients that work together to support optimal brain and body function.  In addition to supporting brain health, Pain and Brain Plus can also help the body overcome other issues such as poor digestion, fatigue, fibromyalgia, arthritis, sinusitis and chronic skin problems.

Although there are some risk factors for Alzheimer’s (such as age and family history) that cannot be controlled there are many proactive steps you can take to prevent it. A healthy lifestyle, an active social life and antioxidant nutritional supplements can help give you’re the support you need to stay vibrant and alert throughout your life.

I love fruits and veggies!

Sunny Sleevez

fruit-veg sun protection

To reduce the risk of sun damage pay attention to what you put in your body, as well as what you use on the outside. Whilst Broccoli isn’t a substitute for sunscreen, the protection you get won’t wash off in the pool either!

Eating the right foods particularly fruit and veg that contain antioxidants reduce inflammation can keep you looking younger as well as helping to protect from sunburn that leads to skin cancer and wrinkles.

Green leafy vegetables can reduce your risk of a variety of cancers, and protect your skin too. According to the International Journal of Cancer, spinach, kale, and chard may reduce risk of squamous cell cancer by fifty percent. Paul Talalay, MD, from Johns Hopkins University has studied the protective benefits of broccoli for twenty-five years. He and his colleagues have discovered that broccoli sprouts are powerful when it comes to cancer protection.

Juicing – FOOD MATTERS


Juicing – The Key To A Vibrant and Healthy Life

http://www.hungryforchange.tv/juicing

FROM Hungry for Change

  • Juicing allows us to take in a large serving of vegetables and fruits at one time and can be the key to giving you a radiant, energetic life and truly optimal health. Dr Mercola typically buys up to 20 pounds of raw vegetables per week and juices a few pounds per day. Some people may find eating that many vegetables difficult, but it can be easily accomplished with a quick glass of vegetable juice.
  • Juicing is an easy way to absorb all the nutrients from the vegetables. This is important because most of us have impaired digestion as a result of making less-than-optimal food choices over many years. This limits your body’s ability to absorb all the nutrients in an optimal way. Juices go straight to your blood stream which in turn carries all the nutrients to where they are needed the most by the body without further delay as in digestion.
  • Juicing can help you add a wider variety of vegetables in your diet. Many people eat the same vegetable salads every day. This goes against the principle of regular food rotation and increases your chance of developing an allergy to a certain food. But with juicing, you can juice a wide variety of vegetables that you may not normally enjoy eating whole.
  • Juicing is also an incredibly effective way to cleanse the body, especially green juices! Green juices contain high levels of chlorophyll a powerful phytonutrient which attaches to toxins and heavy metals and helps remove them from your body. It also increases your blood’s oxygen-carrying capacity by stimulating red blood cell production.

Yoga is not only relaxing and a good exercise, but it can also help with disease.

Yoga Healing

Cancer is a devastating and life-changing diagnosis. Many cancer patients might have difficulty trying to maintain a quality of life similar to what they had before cancer. With added stress and worry about how much longer a patient has to live, discomfort from the side effects of medicine and appetite changes, cancer impacts all aspects of a patient’s life. Those with a more serious form of cancer, such as mesothelioma, might feel an especially great sense of urgency. Mesothelioma life expectancy can be just months after diagnosis. However, despite all these difficulties, the light exercise provided by yoga can help ease some of cancer’s discomfort and yield a better quality of life.

Exercise, in general, greatly benefits cancer patients and survivors. The American College of Sports Medicine has said that it is crucial for cancer patients to stay as active as possible before and during cancer treatment. Exercise builds strength…
