  • Diet and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)  
    The data on BMAA neurotoxin concentrations in animals in South Florida waters indicate that the situation in Guam is not unique. Looks like BMAA could be found in high concentrations in aquatic animals in many areas of the world.

  • Can Oatmeal Help Fatty Liver Disease?
    If oatmeal is so powerful that it can clear up some of the ravages of chemotherapy when just applied to the skin, what might it do if we actually ate it? The pharmacology of oatmeal. Oats are reported to possess varied drug-like activities (like lowering of blood cholesterol and blood sugar, boosting our immune system, anti-cancer, antioxidant, and anti-atherosclerosis) in addition to being a topical anti-inflammatory, and may also be useful in controlling childhood asthma, body weight, etc.

  • Is Milk Good for Our Bones?
    Milk is touted to build strong bones, but a compilation of all the best studies found no association between milk consumption and hip fracture risk, so drinking milk as an adult might not help bones. But what about in adolescence? Harvard researchers decided to put it to the test.

  • The Mediterranean Diet or a Whole Food Plant-Based Diet?
    Recent studies have shown that higher Mediterranean diet adherence scores are associated with a significant reduction of the risk of death, heart disease, cancer and brain disease. But the problem with population studies like these is that people who eat healthier may also live healthier, and so how do we know it’s their diet? As the American Heart Association position states: “Before advising people to follow a Mediterranean diet, we need more studies to find out whether the diet itself or other lifestyle factors account for the lower deaths from heart disease.”

  • The Problem with the Paleo Diet Argument
    Our epidemics of dietary disease have prompted a great deal of research into what humans are meant to eat for optimal health. In 1985, an influential article was published proposing that our chronic diseases stem from a disconnect between what our bodies evolved eating during the Stone Age through the last two million years and what we’re stuffing our face with today, advocating for a return towards a hunter-gatherer type diet of lean meat, fruits, vegetables, and nuts.
