Micronutrient deficiencies among preschool-aged children and women of reproductive age worldwide: a pooled analysis of individual-level data from population-representative surveys

By Gretchen A Stevens, Ty Beal, Mduduzi N N Mbuya, Hanqi Luo, Lynnette M Neufeld, on behalf of the Global Micronutrient Deficiencies Research Group

Micronutrient deficiencies compromise immune systems, hinder child growth and development, and affect human potential worldwide. Yet, to our knowledge, the only existing estimate of the global prevalence of micronutrient deficiencies is from over 30 years ago and is based only on the prevalence of anaemia. We aimed to estimate the global and regional prevalence of deficiency in at least one of three micronutrients among preschool-aged…

Consumer Reports Identifies ‘Potential Pitfalls’ of Direct-to-Consumer Genetic Tests

By Andrea Downing Peck

At-home genetic test kits face scrutiny for providing information that may provide consumers with an incomplete picture of their genetic health risks and ancestry Genetic testing for disease risk and heritage are hugely popular. But though clinical laboratory and pathology professionals understand the difference between a doctor-ordered genetic health risk (GHR) test and a direct-to-consumer (DTC) genetic test, the typical genetic test customer may not. And misunderstanding the…

Is Avoiding Gluten Enough?

By Cell Science Systems

The New Year is the time when everyone looks back and swears not to repeat the mistakes of the past year by making firm resolutions to eat healthy, exercise more, and lose the extra pounds. The fact that we do so every year implies that many of us did not achieve our hopes despite our resolutions last year, the year before that, and so on.…

Alcat vs. IgG Testing

By Cell Science Systems

Overwhelmed by the plethora of food sensitivity tests your patients ask about? The Alcat Test  for Food and Chemical Sensitivities is the most reliable.  But is it an IgG test? Nutrition is biochemistry and one size does not fit all When it comes to achieving good nutrition and being on the path to optimal health, individualization is crucial.   As described by Roger Williams, author of…

Key molecule linked to cancer cell metabolism in tumours of the nervous system

By Cheryl Xia

Researchers discover a key player in tumor energy metabolism that holds promise for new cancer treatments with fewer side-effects. Tumours are characterized by uncontrolled cell growth, which is sustained by a series of cellular reactions to produce the energy and molecular building blocks for replication. This process, called cancer cell metabolism, relies on the activity of many proteins and enzymes involved in metabolic pathways. Scientists…
