8 Whole Grains You're Probably Not Eating

By Cynthia Sass, MPH, RD You've probably had oatmeal for breakfast, and if you haven't yet tried quinoa I bet you've heard of it, or have seen it on a menu or social media recipe (it's all over Pinterest!). But there are many other whole grains you may not be familiar with, and incorporating them into your food repertoire is well worth the learning curve. Whole grains are white hot among chefs and nutritionists. They're versatile, satisfying and in addition to providing slow-burning starch (think sustained energy!), vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, whole grains are health protective. Their consumption is tied to a lower risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer, type 2 diabetes and obesity (yes, a lower risk of obesity). Here are eight to try, plus easy, delicious ways to incorporate them into meals and snacks. (And for those with Celiac disease or a gluten intolerance, the first six are gluten-free.) Black Rice Black rice is popping up on menus all over the place, in items from sushi to meatloaf. The natural pigment that gives black rice its hue is due to a unique antioxidant tied to protection against heart disease, cancer, and obesity. This is why compared to brown rice, black rice packs more potent anti-inflammatory properties, as well as higher levels of protein, iron and fiber. While I've made black rice at home, my local Thai restaurant offers it as a side, and I'll use the leftovers in a variety of ways, including as the base for a hot cereal (made with unsweetene...

ConclusionThere is no association between early initiation of adjuvant chemotherapy and post-operative complications including wound healing. Early initiation of chemotherapy ( ≤ 7 days) is feasible in unilateral WT or high-risk neuroblastoma patients who are otherwise doing well without resulting in a preponderance of wound healing complications.

Purpose of review Gastric intestinal metaplasia (GIM) is an attractive target for surveillance and treatment as it can progress to gastric adenocarcinoma (GAC). Yet, GIM remains a challenging area for clinicians as most patients do not progress to cancer, and there are conflicting data regarding the benefits of surveillance and therapy. This review aims to summarize recently published GIM surveillance guidelines, to discuss, which patients with GIM may benefit from treatment, and to review pivotal and recent literature on GIM therapy. Recent findings Guidelines published by American, British, and European gastro...

Purpose of review To review studies from 2020 to 2021 in esophagogastric cancer. Recent findings After up front D2 gastrectomy for lymph node-positive gastric cancer, 6 months of adjuvant chemotherapy with S-1 and oxaliplatin achieved superior disease-free survival (DFS) compared with 1 year of S-1. The addition of adjuvant radiotherapy, however, added no benefit. After chemoradiotherapy and surgery in esophageal and gastroesophageal junction cancer, in patients with residual disease found at surgery, 1 year of adjuvant nivolumab substantially improved DFS compared with observation alone, leading to regulatory a...

Purpose of review This review highlights literature from the past year and explores the impact on current understanding of celiac disease pathogenesis, diagnosis, and management. Recent findings In contrast to earlier clinical trials, recent data suggests that early gluten introduction may protect against the development of celiac disease. Celiac disease is underdiagnosed, associated with high burden of disease and linked to excess mortality risk, yet, there remains considerable uncertainty regarding the utility of mass screening in asymptomatic individuals. The gut microbiome is increasingly implicated in celia...

Purpose of review Gastric cancer remains one of the most common causes of death globally. Increasing evidence suggests that many gastric cancer cases can be prevented by eradicating its most important etiological agent, Helicobacter pylori. Using the search terms ‘H. pylori’ and ‘gastric cancer’ we reviewed the scientific literature regarding the association between H. pylori and gastric cancer published from 1 January 2020 to 30 May 2021. We review the most important articles relevant to the clinical issues regarding H. pylori eradication for gastric cancer prevention. Recent findings In...
