This article contained an outline of the subsequent Seoul Declaration, which was the result of a cross-disciplinary effort by almost 100 experts. Of course more research is needed on this subject, but I think this article goes a long way towards promoting greater understanding of a local food tradition like the Korean one. Why open access? All the content published in this journal is ultimately about health, well-being, food safety and eating behaviors. We believe that a wider public of researchers, scholars and consumers should access to this kind of information and the open access model suits perfectly this purpose. Also...

Conclusion: This study concludes that the presence of IRW or IQW can mitigate DSS-induced oxidative stress by improving the activities of antioxidant enzymes, increasing intestinal microbial diversity and enhancing the abundance of gut microbiota, which may help maintain the homeostasis of host health and microenvironment in a DSS-induced mouse model, thus providing a potential further treatment for IBD patients.Cell Physiol Biochem 2018;51:441 –451

In the several decades since the need for dietary zinc was discovered, it has proven to be far more important to overall health than initially thought. And deficiency is proving to be common. You may recall that the phytates of wheat and grains block nearly all absorption of dietary zinc, along with blocking iron, calcium, and magnesium (all positively-charged cations). Just as iron deficiency anemia with hemoglobin values of 7 or 8 g/dl resistant to iron supplementation commonly develops in grain-consuming populations, so a parallel zinc deficiency also develops (although not well reflected by blood levels of zinc, which ...

Metformin is Big Pharma's pride and joy when it comes to diabetes. Over 120 million diabetics take this drug to try to control their blood sugar. Even anti-aging doctors have gotten on the bandwagon. They think metformin is a wonder drug. My colleagues keep asking me when I'm going to start prescribing it. Short-term, drugs can be a lifesaver. But long-term, the track record is not so good.

In countries across the globe, in food deserts here in the U.S. and, even, in many of our homes, children are not getting proper nutrition. And the consequences are tremendous: adequate vitamin and mineral intake is essential for a child’s health and development, particularly in the first 1,000 days of life. An infant or a child wi...
