DID YOU KNOW there was an explosive new study in last month's Nutrition Reviews reconsidering dairy recommendations? In a first-of-its-kind study, the authors found a significant difference in metabolic programming with mother's milk compared with cow's milk. Without getting too deeply into the dogma, milk provides cellular proteins that affect 60% of our epigenetic regulation, or how our genes are expressed positively or negatively. Whereas mother's milk lowers the incidence of disease during adulthood, the authors purport that cow’s milk consumed by humans may be associated with an increase in several diseases. Thus, the authors state that perhaps caution should be practiced with regard to human consumption of dairy, particularly for individuals within developmentally critical time frames, such as pregnant and lactating mothers, and young children.

Virus Prevention And Treatment Vaccines minimize COVID-19 related mortality and hospitalizations, but SARS-CoV-2 is here to stay. Moreover, it is not the only virus we fight. There are influenza (flu), norovirus (stomach flu), adenovirus (common cold), and four other coronaviruses (common cold), among others. Continue your immune support year-round. For more information, refer to our Prevent and Fight Viruses 2.0 Protocol.
Post-COVID Syndrome 2.0 The official diagnosis for post-COVID syndrome (PCS) are symptoms that last for 12 weeks or more. If you, a family member, friend, coworker, or neighbor is suffering from PCS, diligently following our Post-COVID Syndrome 2.0 Action Plan for purchase, or free to paid members here (must use the password), can bring measurable improvement.

Trio Slashes Cancer Risk 60%
Steve: Taking vitamin D, omega-3 fish oil, and a simple home exercise program can slash cancer risk by almost two-thirds among older adults, according to new research in Frontiers in Aging. Researchers who studied a group of healthy adults over 70 found the daily supplements, along with regular exercise, reduced invasive disease cases by 61 percent. The findings come from the DO-HEALTH trial, a three-year trial in Switzerland, France, Germany, Austria, and Portugal which included 2,157 participants. Preventive efforts in middle-aged and older adults today are largely limited to screening and vaccination efforts. In DO-HEALTH, the aim was to test promising combined interventions for cancer prevention taking advantage of potentially small additive benefits from several public health strategies. The team identified a cumulative affect from high-dose vitamin D, omega-3s, and a simple home strength exercise program (SHEP). The study is the first of its kind and will hopefully impact the future of cancer prevention in older adults. The study split the 2,157 participants into eight different groups to test the individual and combined benefits of the interventions. One group received 50 mcg (2000 IU) of Vitamin D3 each day. They also received one gram (1000 mg) of omega-3s and participated in SHEP three times per week. The others had either vitamin D with omega-3 or SHEP, omega-3 and SHEP, only one of the three regimes, or a placebo. There were small improvements from each of the therapies, which became statistically significant when used in tandem. I wonder if public health officials and governmental bodies are paying attention? For those interested in the particulars of SHEP:
Sit-to-stand (quadriceps /hip extension strength training)
One-leg stance (hip muscles strength training plus static balance training)
Pull Backs against elastic resistance (seated position)
External shoulder rotation against elastic resistance (seated position)
