SYNOPSIS OF ARTICLES THIS MONTH:

SOY GOOD FOR BLOOD PRESSURE - In conclusion, consuming an isoflavone-enriched low-fat meal acutely increases endothelium-dependent vasodilation in postmenopausal women. Regular consumption of soy isoflavones may protect against endothelial dysfunction.

EXERCISE REDUCES BODY FAT - Even when low on iron...Thus, moderate iron deficiency may cause increased body fat accretion in rats and physical activity attenuates that effect.

TOO MUCH ALCOHOL AND LYCOPENE RISKY - These data indicate an interaction between chronic alcohol ingestion and lycopene supplementation and suggest a need for caution among individuals consuming high amounts of both alcohol and lycopene.

WHOLE MILK REDUCES ASTHMA RISK IN EARLY CHILDHOOD - Milk consumption from early childhood on has been found to be inversely correlated with allergic sensitization and the onset of bronchial asthma. ..These findings demonstrate that dietary CLAs can reduce allergic airway inflammation, most likely via a PPAR{gamma}-related mechanism and by reducing eicosanoid precursors. They give new insights into the fatty acid-mediated mechanism of immunomodulation and may represent a step toward an attractive novel strategy in the dietary prevention and treatment of allergic asthma.

ACID DIET (soda pop and meat) INCREASE OSTEOPOROSIS - Dietary acid load from Western diets may be a risk factor for osteoporosis...Low nutritional acid load was correlated with higher [bone density]in very elderly women with a fracture history. Although relatively weak compared with age and BMI, this association was significant and may be an important additional risk factor that might be particularly relevant in frail patients with an already high fracture risk.

YOGURT HELPS STOP DIARRHEA - Probiotics are viable nonpathogenic microorganisms that are considered to confer health benefits to the host. Recent studies indicated that some Lactobacillus species function as probiotics and have been used as alternative treatments for diarrhea, which occurs due to increased secretion, decreased absorption, or both...

SOY DELAYS LUNG CANCER - Our research provides further support for the concept that consumption of phytoestrogens may be effective in delaying lung cancer progression.
