New Dietary Supplement Better than Vitamin D or Calcium?

Share this ARTICLE with your colleagues on LinkedIn .


A study released from Florida State announces a new dietary supplement that could be a better alternative to vitamin D and calcium. Bahram H. Arjmandi, Margaret A. Sitton Professor in the Department of Nutrition, Food and Exercise Sciences and Director of the Center for Advancing Exercise and Nutrition Research on Aging (CAENRA) at Florida State, studied the impact of the dietary supplement KoACT® versus calcium and vitamin D on bone loss (Florida State, 2014). 


KoACT® is a calcium-collagen chelate. This particular chelate is a compound containing calcium and collagen. Thirty-nine women were randomly divided in two groups, a control taking a vitamin D and calcium capsule, with the experimental group taking KoACT®. 

According to the FSU press release, The women taking the calcium-collagen chelate saw substantially less bone loss than the control group over a year’s time. The group taking the calcium-collagen chelate, saw a loss of 1.23 percent in bone mineral density, while the control group saw a 3.75 percent loss  (Florida State, 2014).

The result from the study appears to show promise in providing alternative supplement options for preventing bone loss. However, the study was funded by AIDP, a large functional ingredient and supplement company, therefore, more independent studies are needed. Before running to the shelves (or online) to acquire your first dose, make sure to consult with a trusted health care provider.

Top Ebola News

Share this ARTICLE with your colleagues on LinkedIn .


The Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) is a severe and unfortunately, often fatal illness in humans. It is transmitted to people from wild animals and via human-to-human transmission. There are no current Ebola vaccines licensed and two are currently undergoing evaluation (WHO, 2014). 


As someone who lives in a large metropolitan city and who travels internationally, I am like many who fear this virus will continue to spread in the United States.  Outbreak control relies on prevention, intervention, surveillance and contact tracing, quality of laboratory service, safe burials and social mobilization (WHO, 2014).


Go to this link from the CDC for advice that may help prevent the transmission of the Ebola virus.

Junk Science Should Be Regulated!

Share this ARTICLE with your colleagues on LinkedIn .


 
 
Dear Friends And Colleagues:

Let’s not fall prey to alarmists who support their cries of “Ban it!”, “Regulate it!”, “We must eliminate it within our lifetimes!” and “Don’t let our children near this!” with junk science. Frankly, you can make a case for a very, very powerful (and dangerous!) correlation between the number of people who are addicted to heroin, and the percentage of those addicted who drank either milk or formula as babies. Really, now.

Read about the hysterical school project which follows...

This was found on the newsgroup: rec.humor.funny

H2O: Dangerous Chemical!

A student at Eagle Rock Junior High won first prize at the Greater Idaho Falls Science Fair, April 26. He was attempting to show how conditioned we have become to alarmists practicing junk science and spreading fear of everything in our environment. In his project he urged people to sign a petition demanding strict control or total elimination of the chemical "dihydrogen monoxide."

And for plenty of good reasons, since:

  1. it can cause excessive sweating and vomiting
  2. it is a major component in acid rain
  3. it can cause severe burns in its gaseous state
  4. accidental inhalation can kill you
  5. it contributes to erosion
  6. it decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes
  7. it has been found in tumors of terminal cancer patients

He asked 50 people if they supported a ban of the chemical.
  • Forty-three (43) said yes,
  • six (6) were undecided,
  • and only one (1) knew that the chemical was water.

The title of his prize winning project was, "How Gullible Are We?"

He feels the conclusion is obvious.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If we really wanted to absolutely horrify our indolent, ignorant and gullible audience (if you’re reading this, you don’t qualify as a member of the aforementioned), we could add the following admonitions:

1. It is colorless and odorless, and could be added to your beverage or meal without your knowledge;

2. It has been found in trace amounts in basements of homes where deadly black mold spores have also been found

You can say what you’d like about search engines, but I think a great many more people (including members of the Legislature and employees of every federal regulatory agency) would benefit by researching some of these “revelations” before choosing which side of the issue to stand on. Think about it.
