The Grain Deficiency Syndrome

Beware the dreaded Grain Deficiency Syndrome. This is what will happen to you if you eliminate wheat, corn, and other grains, the foods that the USDA and U.S. Dept of Health and Human services tell us, through their Dietary Guidelines for Americans, to eat more of, every day, every meal and snack. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the American Heart Association, and the American Diabetes Association also all agree: Terrible things will happen to you if you eliminate grains. You will develop Grain Deficiency! So what does the Grain Deficiency Syndrome look like? Like any other syndrome, you can recognize this condition by its many tell-tale signs: Flat abdomen Rapid weight loss High energy Less mood swings Better sleep, vivid dreams, less restless legs Diminished appetite, freedom from food obsessions, heightened sense of taste Reduced blood sugar, reduced insulin Reduced blood pressure Reduced small LDL and total LDL Increased HDL cholesterol Reduced triglycerides Reduced C-reactive protein and other inflammatory measures Reduced joint pain Relief from acid reflux, esophagitis, and irritable bowel syndrome Reversal of autoimmune conditions Loss of facial and leg edema/swelling Reduced migraine and other headaches Reduced seizures, especially temporal lobe Reduced asthma and sinus congestion Of course, you could choose to cure yourself of this syndrome simply by taking the antidote: foods made with grains like bread, breakfast cereals, pastas, pretzels, crackers, muffi...

es DU Abstract Human t-cell lymphotropic virus type 1 (HTLV-1)-associated myelopathy (HAM) is a progressive neurological disease whose diagnosis is defined by clinical manifestations and seropositivity for HTLV-1 infection. Cognitive impairment (CI) is considered to occur after spinal impairment. A 51-year-old HTLV-1-infected man classified as an asymptomatic carrier presented difficulties in listening comprehension and executive memory. He was assessed for central auditory processing (CAP), cognition (event-related auditory evoked potential [P300]), and otoneurological functions (galvanic vestibular-evoked myogen...

Publication date: Available online 13 December 2019Source: Biocybernetics and Biomedical EngineeringAuthor(s): Tao Zhang, Wanzhong Chen, Mingyang LiAbstractEmbedding entropies are powerful indicators in quantifying the complexity of signal, but most of them are only applicable for real-valued signal and the phase information is ignored if the analyzed signal is complex-valued. To assess the complexity of complex-valued signal, a new entropy called complex-valued distribution entropy (CVDistEn) was first proposed in this study. Two rules, namely equal width criterion and equal area criterion, were employed to demarcate the ...

Authors: Laine MK, Kautiainen H, Gissler M, Pennanen P, Eriksson JG Abstract There is a lack of data about the influence of sunshine hours on the prevalence for gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). The aim of this study was to evaluate whether the prevalence of GDM varied according to hours of daily sunshine during the first trimester. The study cohort (N = 6189) consists of all primiparous women with a Finnish background who delivered between 2009 and 2015 living in Vantaa city, Finland. Data on births and maternal characteristics were obtained from National Health Registers. Data on sunshine hours were obtained f...

CONCLUSION: Despite differences between adults with SCI and adults with CVD in several demographic and health-related measures, the overall similarity in PARs for SCI and CVD suggests potential benefits from using effective CVD interventions to address SCI. PMID: 31835014 [PubMed - in process]
