Abstract The anti-inflammatory diet is based on two diets that have been shown to have many positive health effects-the Mediterranean diet and the Okinawan diet. The anti-inflammatory diet is more than just a prescription for healthy food, but rather a way of life characterized by a plant-based diet and a pattern of living that includes eating a diverse range of locally grown foods eaten in season, conviviality, culinary activities, physical activity, and rest. The Mediterranean diet has been shown to reduce the burden and even prevent the development of cardiovascular disease, breast cancer, depression, colorecta...

Authors: Milliken S, Allen RM, Lamont RF Abstract INTRODUCTION: The use of antibiotics prenatally, during pregnancy, or neonatally may have adverse effects on the neonatal gut microbiome, and adversely affect the development of the infant immune system, leading to the development of childhood atopy, asthma, allergy and obesity. Areas covered: We reviewed new evidence about vaginal eubiosis and dysbiosis from molecular-based, cultivation-independent techniques, and how this affects the neonatal gut microbiome and early development of the immune system in infants. We have considered the association between maternal u...

Conclusion The results obtained from this research shows, in general, the fragility in the social and political infrastructure necessary to improve the living conditions of populations, particularly those that depend on family agriculture in drought prone areas. The conditions of social, economic and environmental vulnerabilities presented in the region can be amplified by the drought process, and can aggravate the impacts resulting drought events, thus disadvantaging the population of this region, as shown in the Fig. 1. The general perception of the interviewees of the health sector shows an agreement with what is found...

Given the increasing use of CS, particularly without medical indication, an increased understanding of its health effects on women and children has becom...

Macrophages are heterogeneous and their phenotype and functions are regulated by the surrounding micro‐environment. Macrophages commonly exist in two distinct subsets: 1) Classically activated or M1 macrophages, which are pro‐inflammatory and polarized by lipopolysaccharide (LPS) either alone or in association with Th1 cytokines such as IFN‐γ, GM‐CSF, and produce pro‐inflammatory cytokines such as interleukin‐1β (IL‐1β), IL‐6, IL‐12, IL‐23, and TNF‐α; and 2) Alternatively activated or M2 macrophages, which are anti‐inflammatory and immunoregulatory and polarized by Th2 cytokine...

Childhood asthma has been on the rise in the U.S. and worldwide. In parallel, the obesity epidemic continues to affect all age groups, including pregnant women and their children. While obesity and asthma are associated, it remains unclear which one comes first. We sought to investigate whether early life weight gain can affect the risk of childhood asthma in the Boston Birth Cohort.
