Update: Wheat Belly safe flours and meals

  So you kiss all things wheat and grains goodbye. And you’ve come to learn that gluten-free foods made with replacement flours like cornstarch, tapioca starch, potato flour, and rice starch are incredibly unhealthy, since they make visceral fat grow, send blood sugar through the roof, and contribute to diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and dementia. But perhaps you’d sure like a few muffins or cookies once in a while . . . without paying the health price that follows wheat and grain consumption such as high blood sugar, insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, autoimmune conditions, acid reflux, and increased potential for dementia. What “flours”–-non-wheat and without gluten-free junk carbohydrates–-are truly safe and provide reasonable baking characteristics? Here’s my list, the flours I use in my recipes: Almond meal—Also called just “ground almonds,” the meal ground from whole almonds is versatile and yields a great texture, though heavier than that from conventional flours. Shop around, as prices vary widely. Where I live (Milwaukee, Wisconsin), I can pay anywhere from $4 to $18.99 per pound from local grocery stores. Almond flour—Almond flour refers to flour ground from blanched almonds that may or may not have had the excess oil pressed from it. This yields a finer flour but minus much of the fiber. It is also more costly. I therefore reserve the use of almond flour for dishes where a lig...

CONCLUSIONS: The number of people with dementia and their family caregivers is large and growing every day with the aging of the population. Living well with dementia is the goal. Current care systems are inadequate and lead to multiple poor outcomes. Innovative solutions like the DICE Approach with delivery methods including a manual and interactive training can put the key components of good dementia care at the fingertips of the people who need it most.

AbstractTo evaluate the efficacy of selective retina therapy (SRT) in patients with diabetic macular edema (DME) based on pretreatment central foveal thickness (CFT). Seventy-two eyes of 63 patients with DME who had previously undergone SRT were included. Patients were divided into two groups based on the CFT at baseline. Group 1 was composed of 35 eyes with CFT

The goals of our research were to: 1. Measure blood pressure (BP) during HD sessions; 2. Study BP in between HD sessions with 44-hour Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring (ABPM); 3. Identify differences between the BP recorded during HD and with the ABPM; 4. Evaluate changes in treatment after the ABPM; 5. Perform bioi...

Tumor immunosuppression is a limiting factor for successful cancer therapy. The lipid sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P), which signals through 5 distinct G protein–coupled receptors (S1PR1–5), has emerged as an important regulator of carcinogenesis. However, the utility of targeting S1P in tumors is hindered by S1P’s impact on immune cell trafficking. Here, we report that ablation of the immune cell–specific receptor S1PR4, which plays a minor role in immune cell trafficking, delayed tumor development and improved therapy success in murine models of mammary and colitis-associated colorectal cancer throu...

Based on unsupervised classification of whole-genome gene expression profiles, four molecular subtypes of ovarian cancer were recently identified. However, currently it is still unelucidated on the immune infiltration pattern of different molecular subtypes of ovarian cancer. we used a computational approach (CIBERSORT) to bulk...

Using microarray-based gene expression analysis, we examined the subtype specific prognostic significance of interferon- γ (IFN-γ) as a single gene as well as an IFN-γ signature covering the signaling pathway in 461 breast cancer patients. Prognostic significance of IFN-γ as well as the IFN-γ signature for metastasis-free survival (MFS) were examined using Kaplan Meier as well as...

This suggests that ETV1 might be involved in colon cancer formation and/or progression.

Consequently, alterations in TGFβ signaling underlie numerous diseases, including cancer. Moreover TGFβ is one of the most potent inductors of EMT (epithelial to mesenchymal transition) in normal and oncogenic epithelial cells from different origins. During EMT, cells undergo an extensive reorganization of cell adhesion complexes, cytoskeletal architecture, and extracellular matrix ...

Ms. Winfrey, Can you lose weight while continuing to consume bread and other products made with wheat flour and grains? You absolutely can—though it is quite difficult physically and emotionally, requiring monumental willpower, as you already know. But I fear that you have overlooked crucial issues in your campaign for Weight Watchers and the exoneration of bread. You have, unfortunately, propagated some destructive misconceptions. And the people who you have hurt the most I suspect are the people who you would have preferred to help the most. Losing weight by avoiding processed food products made with wheat and rel...
