    New Study Suggests Metabolic Homeostasis As A Novel Opportunity In The Treatment of Diseases Such As Diabetes (amazon) (shopzilla)

    Miami, Florida (PRWEB) January 21, 2012

    Nutri-Med Logic Corp expands on a new study, published in the January Issue of the World Journal of Diabetes, which has targeted a gene (Nrf2), a central regulator of the cellular antioxidant defense, as a novel target for the treatment of Diabetes.

    Nrf2 produces the most potent internal anti-oxidant, that being glutathione and while glutathione is found in food but studies have shown its concentration does not increase, significantly, through conventional food or its dietary supplementation.

    Additionally, glutathione decreases by age and lack of glutathione shifts the bodys homeostasis toward oxidative stress, which according to this study, oxidative stress, may lead to the pathogenesis of diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, metabolic syndrome, aging and cancer.

    Proper nutrients play an important role in enhancing or moderating the factors that shift the bodys homeostasis.

    In 2004, a panel of U.S. and Canadian scientists recalculated the amounts of vitamins and minerals, based age and sex, and declared 30 vitamins and minerals as the raw materials that body requires daily but it cannot make in sufficient amounts: Essential Nutrients.

    It is a fact that lack of these 30 essential nutrients plays an important part in the homeostasis of the body and some of those present important anti-oxidant properties. However, none of these 30 essential nutrients would increase the levels of glutathione, the most potent endogenous anti-oxidant, which recycles vitamin C and E, as well as re-energizing Co-Enzyme Q-10, an important anti-oxidant for the heart.

    In 1996, Professor Lester Packer a senior anti-oxidant researcher and scientist at the University of California (Berkley) discovered that dietary supplementation of R-Alpha Lipoic Acid (also known as R-Lipoic Acid), increased the production, as well as the cellular concentration of glutathione. R-Alpha Lipoic, in its reduced form, is made by the human body, as a vital co-enzyme in the metabolism of glucose.

    Stress and inflammation, also, play an equal but crucial role in shifting the bodys homeostasis and are implicated in diseases, ranging from degenerative, neurodegenerative, chronic, autoimmune to opportunistic and infectious diseases.

    A cursory search of PubMed records reveals at least 200,000 related studies in the role of stress or inflammation and diseases, as well as, at least 2,100 related studies of Omega-3 fatty acids in inflammation and stress.

    The primary mechanism for the resolution of the inflammation starts from the cellular membrane through the derivatives of the fatty acids of Omega-3. The membrane ratio of Omeg-3 dictates the intensity and the duration of inflammatory responses.

    Diets lacking Omega-3 tilt the balance to the pro-inflammatory agents, thus throwing the body out of its homeostasis, as well.

    The role of stress and homeostasis has been well studied and established. More importantly, the role of Omega-3 in moderating stress, specifically in the cases of depression and anxiety, has been even suggested by The National Institutes of Health.

    The human body needs Omega-3 but cannot produce it. In the scientific community, Omega-3 is referred to as Essential Fatty Acids.

    In conclusion, Nutri-Med Logic Corp agrees with this recent study and the consequences of a redox imbalance but adds that stress and inflammation, also, play a crucial role in the homeostasis of the human body. Nutri-Med Logic Corp adds that the foregoing clearly establishes the need for inclusion of an anti-oxidant and an anti-inflammatory nutrient in the daily diet.

      A New Study Suggests Certain Nutrients May Offer a Healthy Intervention In Premature Aging of Lungs (amazon) (shopzilla)

      (PRWEB) January 22, 2012

      A recently published study opens the discussion of the importance of nutrients as a therapeutic vehicle in lung diseases, such as COPD and Emphysema. Expanding on this study, Nutri-Med Logic Corp states that, while polyphenols in this new study are correctly suggested to retain potent anti-oxidant properties, capable of activating certain genes associated with aging, R-alpha Lipoic, an endogenous anti-oxidant, also retains similar suggested potent anti-oxidant properties, capable of interfering with premature cellular aging.

      According to American Society for Clinical Nutrition (Proceedings of The International Conference on Polyphenols and Health), polyphenols are antioxidants, and since 1995 they have received more reviews and interest from nutritionists than antioxidant vitamins, carotenoids or minerals. (1)

      In 2010, the Department of Environmental Medicine’s Lung Biology and Disease Program, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, NY, proposed that polyhenols, aside from having anti-oxidant properties, also, possess the potential ability to regulate metabolism, stress resistance, cellular survival, and cellular aging. (2)

      In this recent study, University of Rochester Medical Center, states that COPD is, also, inflammaging (inflammatory disease associated with aging) and, further, since polyphenols possess the potential ability to regulate inflammation, due to their anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory nature, promote cellular resistance to premature death via activating Sirt-1 (a gene associated with regulation of cellular aging), polyphenols offer promising therapeutic intervention for lung health.

      Notable polyphenols are resveratrol, curcumin and catechins, found in red wine, turmeric and green-tea, respectively.

      Not only the University of Rochester Medical Center but also many other equally prestigious institutes have suggested the potential benefits from nutrients such as polyphenols, due to their antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-premature cellular aging potentials.

      One other equally important nutrient is R-Alpha Lipoic, which has anti-oxidant properties that could surpass polyphenols, due to its hydrophilic and lipophilic ability (water and fat soluble), as well as its potential ability to neutralize free radicals in mitochondria (cellular energy plant).

      Alpha Lipoic was used by Dr. Burton Burkson, The FDA principal investigator of Lipoic Acid for last 23 years, in the treatment of a patient with pancreatic cancer and liver metastases. Dr. Burkson credits Lipoic Acid for its ability to moderate NF-kB, a master switch of inflammation. As a parallel comparison, the recent study also suggests moderation of NF-kB by polyphenols.

      Additionally the anti-aging properties of R-Alpha Lipoic acid was a component of supplements that got the attention of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Division of Cancer Biology (DCB) as a popular combination of anti-aging and vitality formula, as reported by National Toxicology program, National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.

      It has been suggested that dietary supplementation of R-Alpha Lipoic Acid (also known as R- Lipoic Acid), increases the production, as well as the cellular concentration, of glutathione, which decrease by age. Glutathione is perhaps the most potent internal anti-oxidant and its decline shifts the body toward oxidative stress and its inevitable consequences of cellular aging.

      In Conclusion, Nutri-Med Logic Corp agrees with this recent study regarding the benefits of polyphenols. However, Nutri-Med Logic Corp adds that R-Alpha Lipoic is equally important as an endogenous anti-oxidant, and a vital co-enzyme in the production of energy, which a plethora of studies have suggested. Also, it is valuable for its multi-faceted benefits.

      Nutri-Med Logic Corp. is a producer of dietary supplements, including a Pharmaceutical Grade R-Alpha Lipoic Acid, the dietary supplement of choice for the Diabetics, in Germany for more than 40 years.

      Nutri-Med Logic Corp is also producer of a Natural, Balanced, Deodorized and Concentrated Omega-3, which is also a Pharmaceutical Grade Omega-3;

        Newly Published Study Finds Important Association Between Oxidative Stress, Microvascular Aging and Healing (amazon) (shopzilla)

        Miami, Florida (PRWEB) February 06, 2012

        A new study, investigating the premature aging and improper healing of the blood vessels, has found that the dysfunction of a cellular factor (Nrf2) to be an underlying cause of the impaired blood vessel formation (angiogenesis) and its subsequent improper healing and premature aging. Expanding on this study, Nutri-Med Logic Corp states that a key target for activation of Nrf2 is to increase the production of an internal anti-oxidant, Glutathione, colloquially referred to as anti-aging anti-oxidant, which decreases by age.

        Prior to this new study, the most notable study in premature cellular aging was done by Dr. Farzaneh-Far of San Francisco General Hospital, published in Journal of American Medical Association, where Dr. Farzaneh-Far found an association between the consumption of anti-inflammatory nutrients (Omega-3) and the extreme ends of the DNA (telomeres), as an indicator of pre-mature cellular aging. Accordingly, inflammation was and continue to be presumed as a key culpable element in normal or premature cellular aging.

        However, while inflammation exerts itself as a cause but, more often than not, the inflammation could only be the symptom. Thus, distinction has to be made as to whether the cellular premature aging is due to the inflammation, per se, or that the inflammation is a manifestation of another underlying cause Redox Imbalance.

        While the lack of anti-inflammatory nutrients could become a causative issue, as to the inflammation, but in the cases of inflammation due to oxidative stress (redox imbalance), anti-inflammatory nutrients could only offer some protective role, whereas improving the redox imbalance would directly address the cause.

        This new study correctly brings to surface an important underlying cause of premature aging: Redox Imbalance, which promotes the activation inflammatory genes, via activation of the inflammation master switch (NF-kB).

        While this study only discusses the premature cellular aging of the blood vessels but the redox imbalance is a matter of systemic concern, to-wit, not only it affects the cells of the blood vessels but also each and every human cell, as the activation of NF-kB through the redox imbalance is a systemic matter.

        As it relates to this study, the genes are those that cause the activation of Nrf2, a cellular transcription factor. Nrf2 targets one of the most important elements in the human anti-oxidant defense (redox): Glutathione. (1)

        According to The Department of Internal Medicine of University of Miami, the cellular redox is regulated by three systems, two of which are also regulated by glutathione. (2)

        For reason unknown, the production of glutathione decreases by age and while glutathione is found in food, its concentration does not increase significantly either through food or through the dietary supplementation of glutathione.

        In 1996, an anti-oxidant researcher at University of Berkeley, California, Dr. Packer, a professor of molecular and cell biology, discovered that R-Alpha Lipoic Acid, a nutrient, increases the production of glutathione.

        R-Alpha Lipoic Acid (also known as R-Lipoic Acid) is a biologically significant (active) compound produced by human body and found in many foods. The serum concentration R-Alpha Lipoic Acid, like glutathione, does not increase from food but studies have conclusively shown that the dietary supplementation of R-Alpha Lipoic results in its detectable serum concentration.

        In conclusion, Nutri-Med Logic Corp agrees with this important recent study but adds, while targeting the activation of Nrf2 is a fundamental step in correcting the redox imbalance but nutrients that are capable of achieving similar results should receive equal considerations.

          New Study on Oxidative Stress Provides Insights to Premature Aging, Diabetes, Atherosclerosis, Hypertension and Neurodegenerative Diseases (amazon) (shopzilla)

          Miami, FL (PRWEB) February 17, 2012

          A newly published study, adopting the thinning of skin layers as a measure of normal or premature aging and the development of degenerative disease, states that in animal models proper anti-oxidant defense lead to normal skin aging, whereas deficiency in the anti-oxidant defense resulted in premature aging. Nutri-Med Logic Corp adds that an imbalance in the anti-oxidant defense inevitably involves the immune system and, thus, shifting its homeostasis. Accordingly, any therapeutic intervention needs to incorporate anti-inflammatory nutrients, as well.

          According the study, at ideal levels, ROS play essential roles as regulatory mediators in signaling or defense processes, including the promotion of angiogenesis (blood vessel formation), erythropoietin (red blood cell) production and the destruction of bacteria and other foreign substances by immune system.

          ROS is regulated by cellular anti-oxidant defense system, one of which is Superoxide Dismutase (SOD). Lower cellular levels of SOD gives rise to excessive Reactive Oxygen Species concentration. In another word, development of oxidative stress and according to this study, a growing body of evidence suggests its definitive role in premature aging and a host of human diseases ranging from diabetes, atherosclerosis, hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, neurodegenerative diseases up to cancer (DNA damage).

          Nutri-Med Logic Corp states that while increasing SOD might not be effectively attainable through diet, but the concentration of an equally important internal anti-oxidant, R-Alpha Lipoic, could very well be attained through its dietary supplementation.

          Both R-Alpha Lipoic and SOD are found in the mitochondria, where metabolism of glucose gives rise to the production of Reactive Oxygen Species.

          Application of R-Alpha Lipoic has conclusively shown that in presence of R-Alpha Lipoic, there is reduced requirement for SOD, by the human body, indicating the importance of R-Alpha Lipoic as a key anti-oxidant nutrient. (1)

          Other studies have shown that SOD presents anti-inflammatory properties, more specifically in studies relating to inflammatory Bowel Disease. (2)

          Inflammation is an immune mechanism and its dysregulation is not limited to Inflammatory Bowel Disease, rather it is implicated in the same spectrum of diseases as the oxidative stress, including but limited to per-mature cellular aging, diabetes, atherosclerosis, hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, neurodegenerative diseases up to cancer.

          While SOD has anti-inflammatory properties but it is not the mechanism, by which the human body resolves the inflammation. The human body resolves inflammation in two principal manners, one of which is through derivatives of Omega-3 fatty acids. The human body is incapable of producing Omega-3, thus it must be supplied through diet.

          While addition of R-Alpha Lipoic is a valuable nutritional support in improving the anti-oxidant defense (redox homeostasis), contemporaneous incorporation of the most powerful anti-inflammatory nutrient (Omega-3) would improve the homeostasis of the immune system (inflammation).

          In conclusion, Nutri-Med Logic Corp agrees with this important new study but adds that regulation of inflammation is equally as important, in opposing the development of age-related disease and cellular premature aging, as the regulated anti-oxidant defense.

          Nutri-Med Logic Corp. is a producer dietary supplements such as a Pharmaceutical Grade R-Alpha Lipoic Acid, the dietary supplement of choice for the Diabetics, in Germany for more than 40 years;

          Nutri-Med Logic Corp is also the producer of the Natural, Balanced, Deodorized and Concentrated Omega-3, which is also a Pharmaceutical Grade Omega-3.

            Agein Corporation, a Leading Anti-Aging Company, Weighs in on Study Suggesting Cryolipolysis Safe and Effective for Nonsurgical Body Contouring (amazon) (shopzilla)


            Boston, MA (PRWEB) August 29, 2013

            Agein.com, the Internets premier anti-aging web site focusing on anti-aging tips, news, and advice from some of the foremost experts in the industry, is releasing its expert opinion on a recent study that suggests cryolipolysis is safe and effective for noninvasive body contouring.

            According to Agein.com, first approved for use in 2010, cryolipolysis (fat freezing) is a medical procedure where subcutaneous fat tissue is destroyed by controlled exposure to cooling. Billed as a nonsurgical alternative to liposuction, cryolipolysis claims to reduce fat deposits without damaging the overlaying skin.

            The large two-year study in question, led by a group of Southern California plastic surgeons, examined the treatments safety, effectiveness, and popularity. The researchers found that cryolipolysis is in fact effective in reducing subcutaneous fat volume. The authors of the study also found that cryolipolysis was associated with few adverse effects; just three cases of mild or moderate pain were observed, all of which rapidly resolved. The popularity of the procedure has also grown substantially; with 823% more treatment cycles delivered in 2012 than 2010. (Source: Stevens, W.G. et al., Broad Overview of a Clinical and Commercial Experience With CoolSculpting, sullivanitpro.com, August 2013; http://pfiles.sullivanitpro.com/aes.sagepub.com/content/33/6/835.full?sid=7205c0aa-7f22-4444-9b40-d965dd7b2105.)

            This study confirms that cryolipolysis is safe and effective and can, in fact, produce results comparable to those of liposuction, says Laura Foreman, Agein.coms Anti-Aging Life Coach. While it may sound surprising that the biggest demand for the procedure is among men, its worth noting that, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, liposuction was the top cosmetic surgery procedure for men in 2012.

            The experts at Agein.com understand that more and more Americans are taking control of their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being, Foreman adds. While a growing number are turning to procedures to help them get the body they want, we think its important to supplement this with a total change in lifestyle. The path toward a fuller, healthier life includes diet, exercise, supplements, a personal skin care regimen, and mental wellness techniques.

              246 Study Participants Reported the Health Benefits of the TA-65 Telomerase Activator (amazon) (shopzilla)


              New York, NY (PRWEB) August 23, 2013

              Studies have linked aging to the shortening of telomeres at the end of chromosomes. A longer telomere length ensures the accurate replication of DNA and maintenance of cellular health. It is believed that the degradation of telomeres causes a stage where the cells no longer can divide or they can mutate into cancer cells. The telomeres shorten up until they become too short causing cells to reach replicative senescence where they are unable to divide further bringing about the many problems that are linked with aging.

              The only way to lengthen telomeres is through the activation of an enzyme called telomerase. At this time, the only natural way to activate the telomerase is through taking TA-65. Manufactured in TA Sciences laboratories, TA-65 is a highly purified and bio-enhanced molecule extracted from Astragalus Root.

              Ivan Joksimovic, from the http://www.ta65doctor.com explained why this supplement is so special:

              “This link between telomeres and aging makes TA-65 the most cutting-edge product talked about in the anti-aging world. Studies show that TA-65 given as an oral supplement has produced amazing results with telomerase activation. This reactivation of telomeres has improved health and signs of aging in many.”

              All studies using the TA-65 supplements are having these same amazing results. The list of aging signs that seem to reverse in some studies is quite remarkable.

              Today, almost six months later, after the initial survey was released, more robust data was collected. The entire study population included 246 participants from 11 countries who volunteered to fill out a confidential survey questionnaire that contained questions about the subjective changes noticed after starting to take the TA-65 supplement.

              84 percent of respondents recognized the progress in immune function, 73 percent were complimented by friends and family on improvements in their appearance, while 82 percent of participants saw great improvement in mood and sense of general well-being.

              These findings are consistent with previous studies. Furthermore, 73 percent of participants also noticed improvements in the quality of their skin, 74 percent had less frequent colds (a testament to the improved immune function), 74 percent noticed improved energy, and 61 percent greater exercise tolerance and endurance.

              A high percentage of respondents noted improvements in other areas, including quality of sleep, hair, vision and sexual function, while they also experienced improved joint mobility, as well as a reduction in joint pain.

              Moreover, to determine the benefits of regular intake, participants were divided into two groups: those who were taking TA-65 less than six months, and those who were taking it longer.

              The results showed a significant improvement in participants taking the pills for more than six months. The percentage of those who recognized the progress in immune function increased to 93 percent (from 72 percent with less than six months users), 91 percent were complimented by friends and family on improvements in their appearance compared with 50 percent, 90 percent of participants saw great improvement in mood and sense of general well-being, a jump from 71 percent, and 82 percent of those surveyed noticed improvements in the quality of their skin as well from 61 percent. Accordingly, the percentage of those who reported improvement in other areas also jumped. See the full study here.

              Ivan explained that these results were expected:

              “These results are excellent, but earlier studies have also shown high efficacy of TA-65 supplement. However, this new study gives us a broader picture of how the short-term use of these supplement makes a positive impact on well being and the most common signs of aging.”

              Whether these supplements become the new fountain of youth remains to be seen, but currently they are the most talked about supplements currently available to fight aging.

                  New Study on Bone Growth and Adolescent Boys Expands Omega-3 Heath Benefits (amazon) (shopzilla)

                  Miami, FL (PRWEB) March 02, 2012

                  A dose-response analyses that consisted of seventy-eight randomly selected healthy, but slightly overweight, boys revealed a positive association between changes in DHA Omega-3 fatty acids and IGF-1, a primary target of growth hormone. Nutri-Med Logic Corp adds that since IGF-1 is adversely associated with prostate health of adult males, clear distinction needs to be made on the different beneficial roles of Omega-3 on IGF-1 and the different stages of life.

                  A recent study by Harvard School of Medicine also found an association between DHA Omega-3 fatty acids and growth. The study by Harvard titled Surprising findings on omega-3 fats, trans fats, and prostate cancer risk, suggests that men with the highest levels of DHA Omega-3 fatty acids were 2.5 times more likely to have developed aggressive, high-grade prostate cancer over a seven-year period compared with men who had the lowest levels of DHA.

                  While more growth in healthy adolescent boys is good news, any improper growth in men with prostate problems is not. However, there is clear distinction in the different beneficial roles of Omega-3 in promoting or preventing IGF-1, in different stages of life.

                  In the first place, in the Harvard report, when a question was asked as to concerns in holding back the consumption of fish (the richest source of Omega-3) by men, Stacy Kennedy, senior clinical nutritionist at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Dr. David Rosenthal, director of Harvard University Health Service collectively and empathically said No.

                  Additionally, another recent study by Department of Medicine, University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, San Antonio, Texas, on the role of Omega-3 and IGF-1 receptor signaling, suggests that the Omega-3 fatty acids were able to prevent progression of LNCaP cells (prostate adenocarcinoma) while the omega-6 fatty acid actually promoted cell growth under conditions of hormone depletion. Nutr Cancer. 2011;63(5):771-7.

                  The University of Texas study further suggests that the fatty acids of Omega-6 (a pro-inflammatory polyunsaturated fatty acids found in most food, especially red meat) indeed exacerbates the prostatic condition.

                  The health benefits of proper Omge-3 supplementation in prostatic conditions emanates from EPA Omega-3 fatty acids, which produces anti-inflammatory prostaglandins series 3, a prudent way to reduce the excessive levels of Omega-6 and that is good news for those with prostatic conditions.

                  While the jury is still out on the DHA Omega-3 fatty acids and those with the prostate problems, the EPA Omega-3 fatty acids has shown positive and acceptable results.

                  Additionally, while the excessive intake of DHA Omega-3 fatty acids may not be favorable for those with prostatic problems, for the growing young boys, the role DHA Omega-3 fatty acids and its proper intake, in bone growth, has shown positive and acceptable results.

                  In conclusion, Nutri-Med Logic Corp agrees with this study and adds in order to achieve ideal benefits of Omega-3, its over supplementation must be avoided, irrespective of the age group.

                    Bel Marra Health Reports on a New Study Revealing Positive Health Benefits of Nicotine (amazon) (shopzilla)


                    Toronto, ON (PRWEB) May 28, 2013

                    Bel Marra Health, who offers high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, reports on a new study that found that foods that naturally produce nicotine may decrease the risk of Parkinsons disease.

                    As Bel Marra Health reports in its article, (http://www.belmarrahealth.com/brain-function/can-nicotine-prevent-parkinsons-disease/), fierce anti-smoking campaigns have been sweeping across North America in the past twenty years. As a result, many people are aware of the harmful effects of tobacco and nicotine. However, a new study has recently shown that nicotine could have some positive effects on our health as well.

                    Nicotine is a chemical produced in the roots and leaves of plants in the nightshade family (such as eggplants, potatoes, peppers, tomatoes, cauliflower, etc), acting as a natural insecticide to protect the plants from scavenging insects. In humans, nicotine acts a stimulant and an addiction-forming chemical in tobacco. “Nicotine addiction has historically been one of the hardest addictions to break,” says the American Heart Association, and is blamed for mass increases of cardiovascular disease, strokes and cancer.

                    However, while smoking nicotine cigarettes has definitely been established as something negative to good health, a study recently published in the Annuals of Neurology has shown that perhaps we should have been eating it instead. The research found that eating foods from nicotine-producing plants (known as Solanceae) could lend significant protection against developing debilitating diseases such as Parkinsons disease.

                    Parkinsons disease is a neurodegenerative brain disorder that slowly progresses in most individuals, resulting from a loss of brain cells that produce dopamine. While there are many symptoms of Parkinsons disease, there are four main motor symptoms associated with the disease, including: shaking (tremor) at rest, slow movement (bradykinesia), stiffness of the trunk, upper and/or lower limbs, and trouble with balance (postural instability).

                    Parkinsons disease is not fatal; however, major complicated arise from this disease, and sufferers find it difficult to perform regular, every-day activities. At the present time, there is no cure for Parkinsons disease. In the meantime, researchers continue to look for ways of managing symptoms, as well as preventative strategies that can protect people from developing this debilitating disease.

                    Previous research has already shown promise regarding the association between tobacco and reduced incidences of Parkinsons disease. However, these studies were not able to pinpoint whether this relationship is due to actual nicotine, or whether it is due to another tobacco component. The newest study set out to discover the specific effects of nicotine containing foods, such as peppers, tomatoes and potatoes, on the development of Parkinsons disease.

                    Susan Searless Nielson, PhD., and her colleagues looked at 490 newly diagnosed patients with Parkinsons disease and 644 neurologically healthy individuals. The participants were given questionnaires that investigated their self-reported consumption of peppers, tomatoes, tomato juice, and potatoes during adulthood. Other factors such as consumption of other vegetables, age, sex, race, tobacco use and caffeine use were also controlled for.

                    The results showed that individuals who consumed a lot of nicotine containing foods had a significantly lower risk of developing Parkinsons disease. The same relationship was not seen when all vegetable sources were combined. The relationship was even more significant when looking at how pepper consumption affected Parkinsons disease.

                    It’s also interesting to note that the researchers found that the protective effects of nicotine foods were seen mainly in men and women who had little or no history of smoking.

                    While more research is needed to understand the implications from this study more fully, it opens up hopeful doors towards future dietary and natural preventative measures that can be developed in the face of this debilitating disease.
