o Weill Cornell Breast Center, Weill Cornell Medicine.

Cancer is a major public health problem and is the second leading cause of death in the United States and worldwide; nearly one in six deaths are attributable to cancer. Approximately 20% of all cancers diagnosed in the United States are attributable to unhealthy diet, excessive alcohol consumption, physical inactivity, and body fatness. Individual cancers are distinct disease states that are multifactorial in their causation, making them exceedingly cumbersome to study from a nutrition standpoint. Read More

J Am Coll Nutr 2018 Oct 11:1-9. Epub 2018 Oct 11.

e Cellular and Molecular Research Center, Department of Pharmacology , Qazvin University of Medical Sciences , Qazvin , Iran.

Objective: The role of gut microbiota in the pathogenesis of several neurodegenerative disorders, including Alzheimer's disease (AD), via the gut-brain axis has recently been demonstrated; hence, modification of the intestinal microbiota composition by probiotic biotherapy could be a therapeutic target for these conditions. The aim of this study was to assess the effects of a probiotic formulation (Lactobacillus helveticus R0052 and Bifidobacterium longum R0175) on inflammatory and memory processes in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced rats, one of the animal models used in peripherally induced neuroinflammation and neurodegeneration.

Methods: Rats were randomly divided into four groups (Control, LPS, Probiotic + LPS, and Probiotic). Read More

From Food for Survival to Food for Personalized Optimal Health: A Historical Perspective of How Food and Nutrition Gave Rise to Nutrigenomics.

J Am Coll Nutr 2019 Jan 3;38(1):84-95. Epub 2018 Oct 3.

a Department of Nutrition and Dietetics, Faculty of Health Sciences , Istanbul Yeni Yuzyil University , Istanbul , Turkey.

Human nutrition has progressed impressively from the hunter-gatherer mode to that of promising personalized nutrition for health optimization through advanced and sophisticated omics technologies. The contemporary major diseases, while having strong genetic components, do not conform to Mendelian genetics; hence, their expression/manifestation is not controlled by a single gene. Noncommunicable diseases such as obesity, cancer, type 2 diabetes mellitus, and cardiovascular disease are attributed to a series of chronic anomalies closely related to dietary, among other, environmental factors, and consistent deregulation of one or more groups of genes (polygenic).

Egg Intake Has No Adverse Association With Blood Lipids Or Glucose In Adolescent Girls.

J Am Coll Nutr 2019 Feb 3;38(2):119-124. Epub 2018 Oct 3.

a Preventive Medicine and Epidemiology, Department of Medicine , Boston University School of Medicine , Boston , Massachusetts , USA.

Objective: Longitudinal data on cardiometabolic effects of egg intake during adolescence are lacking. The current analyses aim to evaluate the impact of usual adolescent egg consumption on lipid levels, fasting glucose, and insulin resistance during late adolescence (age 17-20 years).

Methods: Data from 1392 girls, aged 9 to 10 at baseline and followed for 10 years, in the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute's National Growth and Health Study were used to examine the association between usual egg intake alone and in combination with other healthy lifestyle factors and late adolescent lipid levels, fasting glucose, and insulin resistance, measured as homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR).

Evaluation of Correlations Between Food-Specific Antibodies and Clinical Aspects of Hashimoto's Thyroiditis.

J Am Coll Nutr 2018 Sep 28:1-8. Epub 2018 Sep 28.

a Department of Medical Biology , University of Split, School of Medicine , Split , Croatia.

Objective: We have comprehensively evaluated an immunologic response to food antigens, mediated by immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibodies, on clinical aspects of Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT).

Methods: IgG antibodies to 125 food antigens were measured in serum samples of 74 HT patients and 245 controls using microarray-based enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) test. We analyzed differences in IgG levels between two groups and evaluated correlations between food-specific IgG levels and HT-related clinical phenotypes (thyroid hormones/antibodies, symptoms of hypothyroidism, measures of body size and blood pressure) and food consumption in HT patients.

Cow's Milk Consumption and Health: A Health Professional's Guide.

J Am Coll Nutr 2018 Sep 24:1-12. Epub 2018 Sep 24.

a NFI-Nutrition Foundation of Italy , Milano , Italy.

The most recent scientific evidence supports the consumption of cow's milk and dairy products as part of a balanced diet. However, these days, the public and practicing physicans are exposed to a stream of inconsistent (and often misleading) information regarding the relationship between cow's milk intake and health in the lay press and in the media. The purpose of this article, in this context, is to facilitate doctor-patient communication on this topic, providing physicians with a series of structured answers to frequently asked patient questions.

Protective Effect of Chickpea Protein Hydrolysates on Colon Carcinogenesis Associated With a Hypercaloric Diet.

J Am Coll Nutr 2019 Feb 13;38(2):162-170. Epub 2018 Sep 13.

a Escuela Nacional de Ciencias Biológicas , Instituto Politécnico Nacional , Mexico City , Mexico.

Objective: Colon cancer occupies the third place in incidence worldwide; eating habits, in particular, consumption of hypercaloric diets, are relevant in its etiopathogenesis. On the other hand, foods can also modulate carcinogenesis: for example, proteins, which when hydrolyzed release peptides with biological activities, and legumes, especially, chickpea, represent a good source of hydrolysates. The objective of this work was to verify the inhibitory effect of chickpea hydrolyzed protein on azoxymethane (AOM)-induced carcinogenesis in mice fed a hypercaloric diet. Read More

Milk and Plasma Lutein and Zeaxanthin Concentrations in Chinese Breast-Feeding Mother-Infant Dyads With Healthy Maternal Fruit and Vegetable Intake.

J Am Coll Nutr 2019 Feb 11;38(2):179-184. Epub 2018 Sep 11.

e Abbott Nutrition Research and Development , Columbus , Ohio , USA.

Objectives: While others have reported that milk from coastal Chinese women contains high levels of lutein and zeaxanthin, no research has determined the corresponding infant plasma response. Whether infant plasma levels increase commensurately provides important guidance for supplementation of these increasingly intriguing carotenoids in breast-feeding mothers and formula-fed infants.

Methods: Fifty-six mother-infant pairs with a maternal diet rich in eggs, green leafy vegetables, and fruit were enrolled between 6 and 16 weeks of lactation. Read More

c Department of Nutrition and Dietetics , Hacettepe University , Sıhhiye, Ankara , Turkey.

Background: Hypomagnesemia could worsen glycemic control by impairing insulin release and promoting insulin resistance. On the contrary, type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) may induce and/or exacerbate low serum magnesium levels, and this could, in turn, worsen glycemic control of diabetes.

Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between serum magnesium level, dietary magnesium intake, and metabolic control parameters in patients with T2DM. Read More
