Breastfeeding Reduces The Risk Of Suffering Allergy

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 8:00 AM

Breastfeeding Reduces The Risk Of Suffering Allergy

Today, about one in four European children suffer from allergy, which makes this disease the non-infectious epidemic of the 21st century. Evidence suggests that lifestyle factors and nutritional patterns, such as breastfeeding, help to reduce the early symptoms of allergy.

The detection and reduction of the early causes of childhood allergy is the major topic at the 2nd EAACI Pediatric Allergy and Asthma Meeting (PAAM 2011) that opens today in Barcelona. There is no doubt that the exposure to allergens, both in food and the environment, play a role though the exact significance of dose and timing is not yet fully defined. According to Prof. Halken, PAAM 2011 Chair “there are some hypotheses suggesting that specific lifestyle and nutritional patterns may lead to early symptoms of allergy. For example, breastfeeding for the first 4-6 months has been showed to reduce the risk for atopic eczema and cow’s milk protein allergy”.

The development of allergy is a result of a complex interaction between genetic and many environmental factors that may protect against or promote its development. Factors such as pollution have also been linked to the increased prevalence of allergic diseases during childhood in developed countries.
Physicians agree that one of the key elements in achieving better management of childhood allergy is to improve diagnostic techniques and to develop treatments that do not only reduce symptoms, but can induce a permanent cure. “Early diagnosis can lead to effective treatment to reduce symptoms and improve quality of life. Knowledge about allergies can help patients to avoid contact with offending agents, and thereby to reduce symptoms and avoid risky situations, which may even be life threatening”, points out Prof. Halken.

Put Good Kids’ Food on Congress’ Plate

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 2:19 PM

Put Good Kids’ Food on Congress’ Plate:

My friend and colleague Dr. John Westerdahl,  just had a wonderful  editorial published in the Santa Barbara News Press.  Below the article you can view how the layout was printed in the Santa Barbara News Press!

Put Good Kids’ Food on Congress’ Plate:

By Dr. John Westerdahl,
Bragg Live Food Products

It is disappointing to see Congress’ inclusion of language in the Agriculture Appropriations bill that weakens the USDA’s ability to implement commonsense nutrition standards for school meals and undermines parents’ efforts to feed their children healthfully.

At a time when child nutrition and childhood obesity are national health concerns, Congress should be supporting USDA and school efforts to serve healthier school meals, not undermining them.

Current school nutrition standards haven’t been updated in 15 years, and during that time, children’s dietary intake and health have suffered. Our nation’s children now face serious health risks that used to only affect adults, like type 2 diabetes, increased blood cholesterol and high blood pressure. Children also have an increased risk of long-term, chronic diseases like heart disease, cancer and stroke.

The USDA proposed nutritionally sound updates to help ensure all children receive healthy meals when they eat breakfast or lunch at school. Rather than support this effort, Congress has stepped in to weaken it.

Airline Food Investigation

Airline Food Investigation

According to Airline Transportation Association, there will between roughly 23 million passengers traveling over this Thanksgiving season. Knowing what are the ‘best’ and ‘worst’ choices is a valuable tool for any traveler, so DietDetective.com once again rated the best ‘Calorie Bargains’ and “Calorie Rip-offs” at 35,000 feet.

DietDetective.com issued the 2011 Airline Food Survey rating foods for eight airlines. The survey assigned a “Health Score” (5 stars = highest rate, 0 star = lowest) based on snack/on-board food service offerings, number of healthy offerings, airline cooperation, fruit and vegetable offerings, and improvements. The survey includes health ratings, cost, comments, food offerings, calories, and exercise equivalents.

“This year Virgin America and Air Canada provided the ‘healthiest” choices in the sky, while United had a fall from grace, Spirit received the lowest rating, and Spirit and Delta were the least cooperative (and also received a low health rating),” says Charles Platkin, PhD, MPH, public health advocate, editor of DietDetective.com and assistant professor at CUNY School of Public Health at Hunter College.

How To Reduce Your Risk Of Breast Cancer Dietitians’ Viewpoint

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 8:00 AM

How To Reduce Your Risk Of Breast Cancer – Dietitians’ Viewpoint

In the USA breast cancer incidence , and women over 50 years are at the highest risk. Each year in the UK approximately 47,000 women are diagnosed with the disease and around 341 men.

Breast cancer rates have increased and it is believed that nutritional and lifestyle factors, such as excessive alcohol consumption, diets high in fat, diets low in fiber, and obesity play a part in breast cancer risk, although no clear connection has been compellingly demonstrated.

Nutrigenomics is a new scientific field that combines genetics and nutrition in order to identify how the food we eat, or bioactive food molecules affect our genes. It is suggested that eating foods that have a nutrigenomic effect will cause certain genes to switch on or off.

Bodyweight control – make sure you do regular physical exercise, and choose healthy foods, such as fruits and vegetables, wholegrains, nuts, and dairy products low in fat. For women a health body mass index (BMI) ranges from 18.5 to 25. Even though BMI is a helpful tool to assess body status, it is not the only indicator. BMI can be calculated by using your weight in kilograms (kg) and height in meters (m), with the formula BMI = weight/height.

Eat more vegetarian foods – eat more fruits and vegetables, the fiber (lignins) in them as well as isoflavones from legumes, soya, and beans, have been linked to a reduced risk of developing the disease. Try to eat at least 5 portions daily. Visit the British Dietetic Association for simple ways to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into your diet.

Lower your intake of saturated fat – avoid eating saturated fats (from animal products), instead replace them with poly and monounsaturated fats ‘good fats’, which are found in avocados, olive oil, nuts, and salmon.

Reduce Salt and sugar intake – lower your salt intake by staying clear of foods that are pickled, cured or processed, as well as not adding extra salt to your meal. Avoid consuming cakes, pastries, and biscuits as they contain refined sugars.

Watch your alcohol consumption – women who consume too much alcohol regularly have a higher risk of developing breast cancer, previous studies have shown. To lower your risk stick to the recommended daily intake of 2-3 units per day, or 14 units per week. One unit is the same to ½ a standard glass of wine (175ml).
