GreenMedInfo December 5th 2012 By: Sayer Ji, Founder Calcium deficiency is a common nutritional concern, but how many folks consider the vital importance of magnesium in human health and disease?
New research published in the journal BMC Bioinformatics indicates that magnesium's role in human health and disease is far more significant and complicated than previously imagined.
While it is well known that all living things require magnesium, and that it is found in over 300 enzymes in the human body, including those enzymes utilizing or synthesizing ATP (the molecular unit of currency for energy transfer), the new study titled, "3,751 magnesium binding sites have been detected on human proteins," indicates that a deficiency of magnesium may profoundly affect a far wider range of biological structures than previously understood.
The proteome, or entire set of proteins expressed by the human genome, contains well over 100,000 distinct protein structures, despite the fact that there are believed to be only 20,300 protein-coding genes in the human genome.
The discovery of the "magneseome," as its being called, adds additional complexity to the picture, indicating that the presence or absence of adequate levels of this basic mineral may epigenetically alter the expression and behavior of the proteins in our body, thereby altering the course of both health and disease.

Using diet sodas or sugar-sweetened regular sodas may increase risk of leukemia in men, but not in women, according to a new study published on Oct 24, 2012 in American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Diet soda often uses aspartame, an artificial sweetener that has been linked to leukemia in animal studies.
The researchers also found men, but not women who had higher intake of regular sugar sweetened soda were at 66 percent higher risk for non-Hodgekin lymphomas, compared to men who did not use sugar sweetened soda.
Additionally, a 41 percent increased risk of leukemia was found in men and women who used one serving of diet soda per day, compared to those who did not use diet soda.
Here we have popular beverages associated with higher incidence of leukemia, but regulators are dragging their feet.
In comparison, they were very fast to regulate nutrients and herbs that had killed no one in decades, when pharmaceutical profits were threatened.
It seems that the bigger the industry, the more "acceptable collateral damage" it can cause and still get away with it.
