Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) is an essential dietary component but vegetarians are more prone to B12 deficiency as plants neither make nor require this nutrient.

Study links vegetarian diet in pregnancy to substance abuse in offspring
Conclusion While having too little vitamin B12 in your diet during pregnancy can affect a baby's development, it remains to be proven whether a vegetarian diet in pregnancy can cause substance abuse problems in teenage offspring. The findings do not mean that vegetarian pregnant women need to start eating meat. It is already recommended that vegetarian and vegan mums-to-be take special care to ensure they get enough of certain nutrients that are found in meat and fish, such as vitamin B12, vitamin D and iron. The study identifies a possible link between having little or no meat consumption in pregnancy (which may have led ...

Ethan’s parents, Holly and Gary, knew even before he was born that he would face several health challenges.

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.

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...

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.
