New research suggests that a higher dietary intake of long chain omega-3 fatty acids in childhood may reduce the risk of developing subsequent asthma, but only in children carrying a common gene variant.
The public need to be more aware of the essential role of iodine in the diet, particularly pregnant women and those of child bearing age.
Omega-3 fatty acids (DHA and EPA) have potent anti-inflammatory activities, and this pilot study provides suggestive evidence that these fatty acids may dampen COVID-19's cytokine storm.
A study designed to study how the immune system impacts gut bacteria—has led to the extraordinary discovery of two molecules that can not only provide profound protection in experimental models of asthma but can also substantially reduce the severity of an attack.
This study concluded that a vegan diet has a broad effect on children's metabolism. Serum biomarker levels for vitamins A and D, cholesterol forms and essential amino acids were significantly lower in children on vegan diet compared to age-adjusted omnivores.
The research so far has indicated that healing a leaky gut can go a long way toward improving mood. The best way to do that is to support those microbes that nourish the gut lining. That turns out to be fairly easy: increase your consumption of fibre.
This is the first research since 2008 to examine the prevalence of mental health conditions among children with autism at a population level, and signals a need for healthcare systems to adapt to account for the overlap.
Diagnosing celiac disease can be difficult. Some patients may be asymptomatic, while others have non-specific symptoms such as indigestion or bloating. It's thought only 30 percent of people with celiac disease are actually diagnosed.
A new study published in Nutrition Research has found that children born to a mother with low intake of vitamin B12 during pregnancy were at increased risk of adverse development specific to certain speech and mathematical abilities.
KU Leuven researchers have identified the biological mechanism that explains why some people experience abdominal pain when they eat certain foods. The finding paves the way for more efficient treatment of irritable bowel syndrome and other food intolerances.
This case study suggests that the development of a blood test to screen for mothers who are at a higher risk of having a child with ASD may be possible.
The researchers in this study found that persistently high insulin levels from mid-childhood were linked with a higher chance of developing psychosis in adulthood.
Behavioral tests on mice showed that hydrogen sulphide improved cognitive and motor function by 50 per cent compared with mice that did not receive the injections of NaGYY.
"If you’ve got something that could potentially save tens of thousands of lives – worldwide, hundreds of thousands, if not millions – and you say there’s not quite enough evidence, but it’s indicating in a positive direction, then you do something about it, don’t you?” David Davis
This study showed that to benefit from diets such as the Mediterranean diet, or MIND diet, we would have to limit our consumption of processed foods and other unhealthy foods such as fried foods and sweets.
More than two-thirds of all packaged foods contain added sweeteners. Why does that matter? Research has found links between kids' high-sugar diets and problems with sleep, learning and emotional health, not to mention serious conditions like diabetes and fatty liver disease.
The authors of this case report the fact that celiac disease may also present primarily as behavioral disturbance in adults, particularly if there is already underlying psychiatric disease or intellectual deficits.
The first U.S. government dietary guidelines for infants and toddlers recommend feeding only breast milk for at least six months and no added sugar for children under age 2.
This is the first study to examine unhealthy diets and stress-related sleep disturbance on a global scale in high school students.
Infant formula enriched with milk fat globule membrane, omega-3 fatty acids, and synbiotics may lead to fewer behavioral problems up to 2.5 years of age, says a study from Spain.
