Miles to go: From Mississippi to Boston for life-saving care
Whether he’s riding with his family on their all-terrain vehicle (ATV) at home in Mississippi, learning how to fish or playing with his cousins, Ethan Claborn is happiest when he’s outdoors. Simple things like a blade of grass or drop of rain are even more special for this almost four-year-old, considering he spent the first year of his life within hospital walls. Ethan’s parents, Holly and Gary, knew even before he was born that he would face several health challenges. But it still felt like a shock when, not long after birth, he was rushed into surgery to treat an intestinal blockage. Diagnosed with ile...

Sir David Attenborough Struggles With Memory Loss And Boomers Start To Worry
In between discussing how to save the planet, Sir David Attenborough recently mentioned something that tapped directly into the fears of the world’s older residents: He’s having trouble remembering names. In his case, plant names. Aging’s biggest bugaboo is memory loss, and the worry that someday we won’t recognize our loved ones strikes fear in the heart of even the most laid-back boomer.  So when the famed naturalist, who turns 91 in May, sat down with The Telegraph less than 24 hours after a trip to the Jura Mountains in Switzerland and noted that he hadn’t remembered th...

The Effects of B12 Deficiency
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. Long term, like so many of Big Pharma's "cures," metformin creates more problems than it solves… Patients often stay on this drug for 10 years… 20 years… and more. That's a long time to be ...

Without Essential Nutrients, A Child’s Body Struggles To Do These Things
When our children get into cars, we make them buckle their seat belts. And when they learn to ride bikes, we teach them to wear helmets. But not everything that has to do with our children’s health and well-being is as easy to see as a helmet or as simple to reach for as a seatbelt. 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...

The world we live in is nothing like the environment our ancient ancestors thrived in. In their world, they got all the nutrients they needed from food. Toxic Food The commercially processed meats we eat are loaded with toxins. Our soil has lost nutrients at a staggering rate. And this decline in soil quality is robbing our food of all nutrition.

DHA May Slow Cognitive Decline
There is a wealth of evidence that omega-3 fats such as DHA, found in salmon and other fish, play a role in both brain and heart health. In fact, infant formulas are supplemented with a type of DHA because it is critical to newborns' brain development. Now, a new study published in JAMA Neurology has shown an association between low levels of DHA and cerebral amyloidosis, a precursor of the beta-amyloid plaques common in the brains of people with Alzheimer's disease. The researchers took blood samples and conducted Amyvid PET scans of the brains of 61 seniors who did not show signs of cognitive impairment. (These scans, ...

Can You Really Bottle Energy?
You see it almost everywhere these days — energy drinks that advertise the wonder of B vitamins. And they all claim to give you the energy boost to get you through your day. Sadly, it’s a big marketing ploy. The quick energy in these drinks usually comes from their high sugar and synthetic caffeine content. It’s true that B vitamins are essential to your body’s energy metabolism. And B12 in particular is crucial for energy. When you take in high-quality B12, you unlock the energy contained in the foods you eat and turn it into glucose you can burn. But fortified junk food is no way to get your vita...

High-Throughput Analysis of Methylmalonic Acid in Serum, Plasma, and Urine by LC-MS/MS. Method for Analyzing Isomers Without Chromatographic Separation
Measurement of methylmalonic acid (MMA) plays an important role in the diagnosis of vitamin B12 deficiency. Vitamin B12 is an essential cofactor for the enzymatic carbon rearrangement of methylmalonyl-CoA (MMA-CoA) to succinyl-CoA (SA-CoA), and the lack of vitamin B12 leads to elevated concentrations of MMA. Presence of succinic acid (SA) complicates the analysis because mass spectra of MMA and SA are indistinguishable, when analyzed in negative ion mode and the peaks are difficult to resolve chromatographically. We developed a method for the selective analysis of MMA that exploits the significant difference in fragmentati...

This revelation, if true, is a real blow to the supplement industry but more so to consumers who ...

“Which is More Accurate, the Hemoglobin or the Hematocrit?”
Discussion Iron is an essential nutrient needed for oxygen transport, storage and utilization. There are 3 stages of insufficient iron in the body which form a continuum. Iron deficiency (ID) is absence of measurable iron stores and is the first stage. The second is iron deficient erythropoiesis which is a low iron supply but with no anemia and the third stage is iron deficiency anemia (IDA) where the hemoglobin concentration falls below the normal threshold for age and sex. IDA responds to treatment with iron supplementation with at least 10 g/l in hemoglobin or 3% in hematocrit after 1 or 2 months of supplementation. I...

Through the study, researchers found that bone mass was severely reduced at eight weeks of age in the offspring of mice with vitamin B12 deficiency.
