    Vitamin D and mood disorders among women: an integrative review.
    Murphy PK, Wagner CL.
    J Midwifery Womens Health. 2008 Sep-Oct;53(5):440-6. Review.
    PMID: 18761297

    Four of six studies reviewed imparted significant results, with all four showing an association between low 25(OH)D levels and higher incidences of four mood disorders: premenstrual syndrome, seasonal affective disorder, non-specified mood disorder, and major depressive disorder. This review indicates a possible biochemical mechanism occurring between vitamin D and mood disorders affecting women, warranting further studies of these variables using rigorous methodologies.

    Nutrients, endpoints, and the problem of proof.
    Heaney RP.
    2008 W. O. Atwater Memorial Lecture
    J Nutr. 2008 Sep;138(9):1591-5.
    PMID: 18716155

    To sum up, I think that there would be general agreement to the effect that nutrition is important, despite the fact that the still growing number of failed trials of individual nutrients might suggest that no nutrient actually made much of a difference, a conclusion that is absurd on its face and ought to have alerted us to the possibility that there was something wrong with how we were investigating the matter. To provide the proof needed to sustain revised intake recommendations, we shall have to find a design better suited to nutrients than the randomized controlled trial as currently implemented, and we need to develop a series of global indices, nutrient by nutrient, which better capture the polyvalent nature of most nutrients. Perhaps it would be useful for the ASN, in collaboration with concerned governmental entities such as the USDA, to convene a workshop to address these structural issues. Such deliberation may well be arduous and frustrating, but it is terribly important and, in my view, well worth the effort.

Serum Vitamin D and Subsequent Occurrence of Type 2 Diabetes : Epidemiology - 0 views

    Serum vitamin D and subsequent occurrence of type 2 diabetes.
    Knekt P, Laaksonen M, Mattila C, Härkänen T, Marniemi J, Heliövaara M, Rissanen H, Montonen J, Reunanen A.
    Epidemiology. 2008 Sep;19(5):666-71.
    PMID: 18496468
    doi: 10.1097/EDE.0b013e318176b8ad

    Conclusions: The results support the hypothesis that high vitamin D status provides protection against type 2 diabetes. Residual confounding may contribute to this association.

    Low vitamin d levels predict stroke in patients referred to coronary angiography.
    Pilz S, Dobnig H, Fischer JE, Wellnitz B, Seelhorst U, Boehm BO, März W.
    Stroke. 2008 Sep;39(9):2611-3. Epub 2008 Jul 17.
    PMID: 18635847
    doi: 10.1161/STROKEAHA.107.513655

    Conclusions- Low levels of 25(OH)D and 1,25(OH)2D are independently predictive for fatal strokes, suggesting that vitamin D supplementation is a promising approach in the prevention of strokes.

    Comparison of daily, weekly, and monthly vitamin D3 in ethanol dosing protocols for two months in elderly hip fracture patients.
    Ish-Shalom S, Segal E, Salganik T, Raz B, Bromberg IL, Vieth R.
    J Clin Endocrinol Metab. 2008 Sep;93(9):3430-5. Epub 2008 Jun 10.
    PMID: 18544622
    doi:10.1210/jc.2008-0241

    CONCLUSIONS: Supplementation with vitamin D can be achieved equally well with daily, weekly, or monthly dosing frequencies. Therefore, the choice of dose frequency can be based on whichever approach will optimize an individual's adherence with long-term vitamin D supplementation.

Study Demonstrates That AHCC(R) Provides Immune Enhancement Against The West Nile Virus - 0 views

  •  
    A recently completed study from researchers at Colorado State University supported by the Division of Vector-Borne Infectious Diseases with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has demonstrated that AHCC(R) (Active Hexose Correlated Compound) enhances host resistance by boosting protective immune responses specific to the West Nile Virus.

    Since its discovery in the United States in 1999, infections caused by the West Nile Virus have become a major public health concern. West Nile Virus is caused by people being bitten by mosquitoes infected with the virus. According to the CDC, there have been 28,018 reported cases with 1,092 deaths since 1999. In 2003, the highest number of cases was reported at nearly 10,000. Currently there is no effective treatment for the disease.

Adiponectin May Be a Marker for Type 2 Diabetes - 0 views

  •  
    September 3, 2008 - Adiponectin is inversely linked with the risk for type 2 diabetes in women, but resistin is not, according to the results of a prospective, nested case-control study reported in the September 2 issue of the Annals of Internal Medicine. The study authors suggest that adiponectin may be a marker for type 2 diabetes.
