Deat Valued Subscriber,
Did you know that renowned
cell biologist Bruce Ames, PhD. says
helps preserve telomeres, the
protective tips of chromosomes,
where your genes are stored. A lack
of magnesium shortens telomeres and
Did you know that
consumption of EPA/DHA supplements
for a four month period can help
balance omega 3 to omega 6 fatty
acid ratios to the point that it
prevents telomere degradation, as
stated in this week's Brain,
Behavior, and Immunity.

Too Much Stored Iron May Accelerate
the Onset of the Diabetic State.
pancreas is the "diabetes organ"
because it produces beta cells,
found in the islets of
Langerhans, which play a crucial
role in the disease. Beta cells
respond to an increase in sugar
levels in the blood stream by
releasing insulin (which they
store) and also producing more
of the hormone so sugar can be
transported into the cells. In
people who have type 2 diabetes,
the beta cells are unable to
produce enough of the insulin
the body needs. One reason for
this problem may be blamed on
the increased activity of a
protein that transports iron and
also destroys beta cells.
A study in the September issue
the first to show to a link
between inflammation and the
transport of iron, which the
investigators believe to be the
underlying cause of a higher
risk for diabetes. Inflammatory
signal factors produced around
the beta cells in people who
have either type 1 or type 2
diabetes speed up the activity
of the iron transporter.
What this new study means is
that individuals who have
prediabetes or who are concerned
about developing diabetes may
want to talk to their healthcare
providers about their use of
iron supplements and iron in
This is one of the reasons I
always look at Ferritin (stored
iron) levels. Too much stored
iron wreaks havoc on all organs,
including the pancreas. This is
also why I also never recommend
supplemental iron (not even in
fortified breads and cereals) to
men and post menopausal women
unless they are clinically iron
Do not misconstrue the fact that
supplemental and dietary iron
are desperately crucial for
those who need it, as long as it
is properly absorbed and taken
at the correct dosage.

Spaniards Are Eating More Like Us.
A study in journal Nutrition showed
that the Spanish population is
drifting away from the
Mediterranean diet to adopt a
less healthy diet, typical of
Western countries. Not
surprisingly, more frequent
cases of chronic disease
associated with American
culture, such as obesity and
diabetes, are appearing.
In light of
another study published last
week in the New England
Journal of Medicine showing
that a Mediterranean diet had
long lasting effects on weight
when promoted in the workplace,
Spanish public health leaders
would be best served by going
back to basics.
If you are looking for
assistance in adhering to a
Mediterranean-type diet, our Best
