Nutrition professionals are obligated to follow ethical guidelines when conducting industry-funded research.

J Am Diet Assoc 2011 Dec;111(12):1931-2

Baylor College of Medicine, Department of Pediatrics, Houston, TX, USA.

Although disclosure of all funding sources, including those from industry, is mandatory for publication, it is no longer adequate. Given the skepticism surrounding industry-funded research, we need guidelines for communication with funding organizations and publication venues, and we need to safeguard and preserve research and scientific integrity.

Health behaviors and weight status of childhood cancer survivors and their parents: similarities and opportunities for joint interventions.

J Am Diet Assoc 2011 Dec;111(12):1917-23

Department of Oncological Sciences, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York, NY 10029, USA.

Childhood cancer survivors are at increased risk for chronic health conditions that may be influenced by their cancer treatment and unhealthy lifestyle behaviors. Despite the possibility that interventions targeting the survivor-parent dyad may hold promise for this population, a clearer understanding of the role of family factors and the lifestyle behaviors of both survivors and parents is needed. A mailed cross-sectional survey was conducted in 2009 to assess weight status (body mass index), lifestyle behaviors (eg, diet, physical activity), and the quality of the parent-child relationship among 170 childhood cancer survivors who were treated at MD Anderson Cancer Center and 114 of their parents (80% mothers).

Sensory evaluation ratings and moisture contents show that soy is acceptable as a partial replacement for all-purpose wheat flour in peanut butter graham crackers.

J Am Diet Assoc 2011 Dec;111(12):1912-6

Department of Health and Kinesiology, Georgia Southern University, Statesboro, GA 30460-8076, USA.

Fortification can help individuals achieve adequate nutritional intake. Foods may be fortified with soy flour as a source of protein for individuals limiting their intake of animal products, either due to personal dietary preference or to reduce their intake of saturated fat, a known risk factor for heart disease. This study determined the feasibility of fortifying peanut butter graham crackers by substituting soy flour for all-purpose wheat flour at 25%, 50%, 75%, or 100% weight/weight. Read More

Adverse food reactions--an emerging issue for adults.

Authors:
Isabel Skypala

J Am Diet Assoc 2011 Dec;111(12):1877-91

Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK.

Adverse reactions to foods are classified according to the presence or absence of involvement of the immune system, which may or may not include the production of immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies. This review focuses on the epidemiology, diagnosis, and management of adverse food reactions, primarily in adults, and excluding celiac disease and lactose intolerance. Reported reactions to foods are often believed to be manifestations of a food allergy; however, IgE-mediated food allergy only affects 1% to 4% of adults, with seafood, tree nuts, peanuts, fruits, and vegetables being the most common triggers.

Energy balance in patients with pressure ulcers: a systematic review and meta-analysis of observational studies.

J Am Diet Assoc 2011 Dec;111(12):1868-76

Servizio di Dietetica e Nutrizione Clinica, Fondazione IRCCS Policlinico San Matteo, Pavia, Italy.

Medical nutrition therapy is reported to contribute to wound healing. However, effective intervention requires an accurate estimation of individual energy needs, which, in turn, relies on accurate methods of assessment. The primary aims of this systematic review and meta-analysis were to evaluate the resting energy expenditure (REE) of patients with pressure ulcers (PUs) compared to matched control groups and the potential estimation bias of REE predictive equations.
