Dear Valued Subscriber,   


Did you know that a recent Mayo Clinic Proceedings study states that sedentary behavior lowers cardiorespiratory fitness levels? For example, two hours of sedentary behavior can be just as harmful as 20 minutes of exercise is beneficial.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: our office will be CLOSED Saturday, October 4th.


Have a happy, healthy week. Bonnie and Steve Minsky


Earliest Diabetes Prevention
Infants who are at genetic risk of developing type 1 diabetes and who were given probiotics before 3 months of age had a 33% reduction in the risk of pancreatic beta-cell islet autoimmunity, according to new results from an ongoing international study presented at the European Association for the Study of Diabetes 2014 Meeting.


The research team emphasized that the link was strongest in infants who had received probiotics at a very young age, at less than 1 month old.


Probiotics containing mainly Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium were given either as a supplement or in probiotic-fortified infant formula.


Asked why the team believed the probiotics had such a marked effect in very young infants, they said that during the first 3 months of life, the infant gut is vulnerable, and leakage can occur through the gut wall. Probiotics enhance the maturity of the gut barrier to help defend the body against environmental viruses and foreign proteins. With probiotics, the infant is better prepared to process these, and in this way they may not trigger an adverse autoimmune response.


Bonnie: Another sad, but interesting observation included the amount of probiotic use, stratified by country, which differed markedly. For example, in Finland, 36% of infants had started probiotics by 3 months, whereas in the United States, only 2% had. In Germany, 24% had started by 3 months.
