Graham Player Ph.D.'s curator insight, June 25, 2013 3:12 AM

There is growing evidence of the relationship between inflammation and cancer. Inflammation is further implicated in a number of diseases such as heart disease, arthritis, and Alzheimer’s. It may be a very early push-factor that could induce healthy cells along the path to becoming cancerous.

There is already evidence that obesity increases the risk of developing some cancers and that obesity increases inflammation throughout the body. So a diet that focuses on reducing inflammation could be well-advised for many people.

The Anti-Inflammatory Food Pyramid developed by Dr. Weil is a great start and approach to reducing inflammation - http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/ART02995/Dr-Weil-Anti-Inflammatory-Food-Pyramid.html

Snowshoe Running: Technological Breakthroughs for Winter Running

For runners living in the northern snowy states, the sport of snowshoe running has cured cabin fever for many.  Snowshoe running and racing has become the new winter sport, and manufacturers are stepping up to the plate to provide lightweight shoes ready for trail running. A running and racing snowshoe is ergonomically different than a traditional shoe used for backcountry hiking or just trail walking.  The running-specific models on the market are designed for running by reducing the surface area and making them lighter.  Since running and racing is typically done on pack trails, floatation is not an issue.  Lower profile and lighter materials are the norm for racing.   The unique bindings and lightweight crampons under foot provides good traction and good stability. Several manufacturers have come to the forefront in innovations.  Crescent Moon, located in Boulder Colorado, is one of the forerunners and have just released their new carbon running version which is lighter and

The Complete Guide to Understanding Probiotics and Prebiotics

The Complete Guide to Understanding Probiotics and Prebiotics | Fitness, Health, Running and Weight loss | Scoop.it

Guest post by Alexander Shikhman, MD


"The human gut contains a myriad of microorganisms which form a well-orchestrated ecosystem known as microbiota.

 

Human microbiota plays a vital role in the human body via regulation of immune and inflammatory responses, production of certain vitamins and biologically active substances, scavenging of non-digested food components and human body metabolites (for example, uric acid causing gout) and feeding the intestinal lining.

 

Disturbances in the human microbiota caused by antibiotics, excessive carbohydrate consumption, prolonged use of birth control pills, immunosuppression and anti-inflammatory drugs can result in colon inflammation, yeast overgrowth, leaky gut syndrome and eventually trigger chronic fatigue, brain fog, insomnia and headaches.
