Interesting. This study found that all participants lost weight but the volunteers who physically logged their daily exercise sessions lost more weight and kept it off. Today’s technology has its place as a tool we can use in the care of our bodies and our health. But, it can also be very easy to become reliant on technology to do the dirty work for us instead of taking responsibility for our own well-being.
Dieting adults who wore activity monitors for 18 months lost significantly fewer pounds over that time than those who did not.

Interesting that experts in antimicrobial resistance, like CDDEP Director Ramanan Laxminarayan, are working to educate the world on the importance a diverse “global” microbiome. “Antibiotics will ultimately lead to further resistance not only among pathogens but in all parts of the microbiome, including in animals and the environment.”

We’re suffering from an epidemic of chronic disease. The fastest way to recover our natural health and vitality is not to take a pill; it’s to return to a way of living and eating that more closely matches what our genes and biology are designed for. http://bit.ly/2cXOKBx
We’re suffering from an epidemic of chronic disease. Consider the following: A billion people worldwide are suffering from diabetes and obesity 600 thousand people in the U.S. die from heart attack…

Not so fast. This is a good example of why it’s so important to read the full text of a study, and not just trust the author’s conclusions in the abstract (or the media headlines).
Unfortunately, this is not a photo of the "ketogenic diet" meals the subjects were served in exactly 2 out of 24 months of the study... ah...

Interesting. This study found that Vitamin D supplementation reduced asthma attacks requiring emergency room visits by 60%. More research is needed to understand exactly why this occurs, but it seems to offer a bit of hope for those suffering from mild to moderate asthma.
Regular vitamin D supplements may lower the number and severity of asthma attacks.

Are fall allergies hitting you hard? Read on to learn how disruption of your resident microbes might be associated with your allergies, and what steps you can take to alleviate your worst symptoms.
Every mucosal surface on your body is colonized by a distinct group of microbes, including your gut, lungs, and nasal passages. Far from causing harm, these microbes “teach” your immune system to tolerate dietary proteins and other harmless allergens in the environment. Read on to learn how disruption of your resident microbes might be associated with your allergies, and learn what steps you can take to alleviate your worst symptoms.

Keeping young children under the age of two off antibiotics appears to lower their risk for childhood obesity later on. Researchers in this study followed a more than 20,000 children from birth to age four and found that those who were given three or more courses of antibiotics before age two, were at an increased risk of becoming overweight by age four.

Very tenuous cause and effect. Many factors must be weighed, including the life of the child. But will it make him or her fat is a long way down the list!

In this pod cast from a couple of years ago, we received a question about how to restore gut flora and function when unable to tolerate probiotics and fermented foods not likely due to histamine allergy. This is a great question, it’s one that I get a lot, and it turns out there are several potential reasons why somebody may not be able to tolerate fermented foods or probiotics, and one of them is histamine intolerance. http://bit.ly/2cQxcoV

“Pollution levels inside cars were found to be up to 40% higher while in traffic jams or at a red traffic light compared to free-flowing traffic conditions,” new research indicates. If sitting in traffic is a daily or weekly occurrence for you, there are steps you can take to dramatically reduce the amount of toxic air pollution you are exposed to. Read on.
Pollution levels inside cars were found to be up to 40% higher while in traffic jams or at a red traffic light compared to free-flowing traffic conditions, new research indicates. The World Health Organization has placed outdoor air pollution among the top ten health risks faced by humans, linking with seven million premature deaths a year.

Could our gut bacteria be controlling our emotions? Although I have been writing and talking about our gut-brain axis for some years now, mainstream research is just beginning to understand how important a healthy gut microbiome is to our overall well-being – and that includes emotions.
An expert on the brain-gut axis says your trillions of gut microbes are in constant cross-talk with your brain, and there’s mounting evidence that they may affect how you feel — not just physically but emotionally.

Chronic sinusitis (also known as chronic rhinosinusitis, or CRS) is one of the most common human diseases, affecting 1 in 7 American adults. And like many other modern, chronic conditions, its prevalence appears to be increasing. Find out why probiotics may represent the future of treating chronic sinus problems. http://bit.ly/2d14Ttj

Research continues to find correlations between toxic air pollution and increased risk of type 2 diabetes. "Whether the disease becomes manifest and when this occurs is not only due to lifestyle or genetic factors but also due to traffic-related air pollution," said Professor Annette Peters, director of the Institute of Epidemiology II at Helmholtz Zentrum München.
Exposure to air pollution at the place of residence increases the risk of developing insulin resistance as a pre-diabetic state of type 2 diabetes, report scientists.

Very uninformed.. I'm concerned that you will be providing harmful information that will hurt the community. Very disconcerting that you would write about nutrition with no training and referencing other blogs instead of peer-reviewed and published studies.

Hi Dear Chris: I am very impress by the information you are sharing with us - the people suffering from IBS or other digestive problems. Since the last five years I have been having horrible diverticulatis flares, after reading your articles,and taking notes, I am ready to make the changes in my diet to be a healthy and happy human being. Thanks, Luz Daugherty

Save your time and money. God complex without the God skills. His staff reflects him...arrogant and incompetent. Very disappointed, Id recommend everyone from the Paleo community or AIMC stay away
