Americans love to celebrate weekends at the beach or by the pool. If that’s your plan, I hope your day includes a dose of sunshine. However, I have an important message before you cover yourself in sunscreen. Don’t do it! If you’re shaking your head in disbelief, I get it… What I just said goes against everything you’ve heard for the last 40 years or so from doctors, dermatologists and the mainstream media. But I’ve been telling my patients for decades that covering themselves in commercial sunscreen is bad advice.   In fact, since the start of the media campaign to push sunscr...

Vitamin D may prevent asthma worsening for some
Conclusion This review gathers the available trial evidence to address the specific question of whether giving people with asthma vitamin D supplements could have an effect on how many asthma exacerbations they have.

Researchers also made careful attempts to gather all relevant data and information on confounding factors, and all but one trial had a low risk of bias. But there are some limitations to bear in mind: With the relatively small number of trials and par...

Prediabetes drug increases risk of diabetes!
Raise your hand if your doctor has ordered a blood test to check your glucose. Most do, whether or not you have symptoms of diabetes. If your fasting blood sugar is 125 mgm/dL or above you are considered a diabetic. But if your number comes in between 108 and 125 they’ll say you have “prediabetes.”  That’s a condition where your cells have a resistance to the hormone insulin. Your body uses insulin to put glucose into your cells where it can provide energy. But with insulin resistance, your cells are slow to take up glucose. It builds up in your blood.  Over a lifetime, 70-75% of people ...

Vitamin B3 found in Marmite not proven to prevent miscarriage
Conclusion This early-stage laboratory research has pinpointed two potential genes that might be responsible for some miscarriages and birth defects. As well as identifying a problem, the researchers also managed to find a solution: the effect of these genes can be combatted by increasing vitamin B3 intake. But treating a very specific and uncommon cause of birth defects in mice is certainly not a sure-fire solution to "significantly reduce the number of miscarriages and birth defects around the world". We need future research to see if the same effect would happen in humans. Also, three of the four children inc...
