Dear Valued Subscriber,
Did you know that the
title of a study from the November
7th issue ofAmerican Journal of
Lifestyle Medicine is
say to your patients about diet in
sad display of what it is like for
health care providers today, this is
about as much time as many
physicians have during routine
visits to discuss diet.
was the author's (a registered
dietitian) advice? "Include a fruit
or vegetable with every meal and
snack, and eat meals together." Ah,
if life was that easy. First, many
people have a limited scope of the
fruits and vegetables available to
them. Second, modern lifestyles make
eating together difficult. Sorry, a
30 second spiel won't cut it.
Did you know that "by
the year 2040, we will get about
1.5 to two times the amount of
pollen that we have now," says
Leonard Bielory, MD, professor
of environmental prediction at
Rutgers University. Pollen
production will also start
earlier and peak earlier. His
findings, presented at the
American College of Allergy,
Asthma & Immunology annual
meeting, was echoed by
researchers at the U.S.
Department of Agriculture.
Have a happy, healthy week.

Micronutrient Deficiencies Linked to
Metabolic Syndrome in Children.
including retinol (vitamin A),
retinyl esters (vitamin A),
carotenoids (alpha carotene,
beta carotene, beta
lutein+zeaxanthin, and total
lycopene), vitamin E, and
vitamin C have antiinflammatory
effects. Moreover, their
properties have shown to reduce
oxidative stress, a process that
accompanies the pathogenesis of
many chronic diseases. It is
still largely unknown whether
they are associated with the
occurrence of metabolic syndrome
(obesity and diabetes) in the
adolescent U.S. population
between 12 to 19 years old.
Metabolic Syndrome was defined
by the International Diabetes
Federation criteria. Other
non-MetS outcomes relying on
blood measurements were insulin
resistance, C-reactive protein
(CRP), and hyperuricemia.
Adolescents with MetS had
consistently lower carotenoid
concentrations compared with
their counterparts without MetS.
Total carotenoids were also
lower when insulin resistance
and CRP was high. Vitamin C was
lower if uric acid levels were
high. Retinol+retinyl esters
exhibited an inverse
relationship with CRP.
In conclusion, this Journal
of Nutrition study
shows the importance of
understanding and addressing
micronutrient deficiencies in
adolescent U.S. children.
