Grape Seed Extract and Diabetes
Supplementation with grape seed extract may help delay the onset of type 2 diabetes in people with metabolic syndrome (people with a group of metabolic risk factors for heart disease), by suppressing inflammatory markers which are associated with insulin resistance. J Cell Commun Signal.
ADHD and Food Sensitivity
A double-blind, randomized study was conducted to find if food sensitivity could be linked to ADHD (attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder) in children (aged 4 – 8). While there were some initial improvements with the ARS scores (ADHD rating scale) for the children on elimination diets, relapses also occurred. The study found that yes, there was a link between ADHD and food sensitivities; however, IgG blood tests were not reliable in identifying specific food sensitivities in children. Keep this inadequacy of allergy testing in mind when trying to decide what you or your pets are allergic to. Lancet.
Vitamin E and Prostate Cancer
Evidence suggests that mixed tocopherols may help prevent prostate cancer risk, rather than increase risk as some have thought. Large doses of straight alpha-tocopherols can deplete gamma-tocopherols, therefore negating the benefit. But vitamin E in the form of mixed tocopherols provides a more balanced benefit. Arch Intern Med.
The recent press alarming people that "vitamin E" can increase the risk of disease, simply highlights the following:
"A Harvard study showed a 27% reduction in AIDS deaths among patients given vitamin supplements."
"There have been no deaths from vitamins in 27 years."
"Antibiotics cause 700,000 emergency room visits per year, just in the US."
"Modern drug-and-cut medicine is at least the third leading cause of death in the US. Some estimates place medicine as the number one cause of death."
"Over 1.5 million Americans are injured every year by drug errors in hospitals, doctors’ offices, and nursing homes. If in a hospital, a patient can expect at least one medication error every single day."
"More than 100,000 patients die every year, just in the US, from drugs properly prescribed and taken as directed."
One example of the double standard is the recommendation for daily dosing of aspirin to prevent a heart attack. Daily ingestion of aspirin long-term greatly increases the risk of pancreatic cancer, which is virtually fatal within 3 years of diagnosis. However, this discovery has received virtually no press.
