Magnesium & Sudden Cardiac Death Risk.
 In January 2007, we made an impassioned plea for our readers to spread the word about the connection between magnesium and thirty-something's dropping dead from sudden cardiac death (article here). We were rebuked for the strong wording of the piece. Almost four years later, a study in this month's American Heart Journal supports our call to action. While the subject group was a bit older (45-64), this should be a wake up call, especially for those who are very active physically, to supplement with magnesium. Along with vitamin D, magnesium is the most deficient nutrient in Americans. Simply put, for maintaining good magnesium levels, diet is not going to cut it.

Acid Reflux Update.
 Between 10 and 40% of patients with GERD who are not responding to proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) given once daily are very common.

These therapy-resistant patients have become the new face of GERD in the last decade and presently pose a significant therapeutic challenge to gastroenterologists.

In addition, gastroenterologists are beginning to find polyps, similar to those in the colon, in the stomach, which is very disturbing. They are attributing this to chronic PPI use.

One would think that research would focus more on lifestyle changes of the dietary nature. In the following update from Current Opinion in Gastroenterology, the future for treating reflux does not look pretty. Of course, there is no mention of the slew of negative data regarding the long-term use.

Bonnie breaks down the good, the bad, and the ugly in...
