From eNewsletter 5/3/2021
DID YOU KNOW that there have been two major developments in the field of food allergy?
First, cow's milk has now overtaken nuts as the most prevalent food allergy in children younger than 5 years, and accounts for about half of all food allergies in children younger than 1. Note that food allergy is a true allergic reaction, such as anaphylaxis. The other development is that sesame has now been designated as the 9th food allergen.

Our COVID-19 Vaccine Opinion This document was updated May 3rd.
Virus Prevention And Treatment Vaccines will minimize COVID-19 related mortality and hospitalizations, but SARS-CoV-2 is not going away, as evidenced by its ever-mutating variants. Moreover, SARS-CoV-2 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. We highly recommend continuing your immune support. For more information, refer to our Prevent and Fight Viruses 2.0 Protocol.

VITAMINS C, E PROTECT AGAINST PARKINSON'S Steve and Bonnie: While we had to do a double-take, a new study in Neurology found that higher intake of vitamins C and E was associated with a 32% reduced risk for Parkinson's disease (PD) in a huge population study performed over 19 years. The researchers intimate that higher intake of both vitamins, as opposed to one, strengthened the association with lower PD risk. As you may know, ACES (vitamins A, C, E, and selenium) often work in concert for prevention. The researchers delved deeper into the study and found the vitamins were even more helpful in those with higher body mass index (BMI), showing a 56% reduced PD risk. Researchers theorize that oxidative stress contributes to the pathogenesis of PD and leads to the loss of dopaminergic cells. Also, with respect to oxidative stress, polyunsaturated fatty acids in the brain undergo lipid peroxidation and produce toxins. Dietary antioxidants like vitamins C and E scavenge reactive oxygen species and so may protect against neuronal damage. We love studies like these because they are performed over a long period of time, which is how vitamin prevention studies should be performed.
