Latest Research

This study probes the practices and experiences of individuals ‘self-treating’ with helminths through the eyes of their physicians. Five physicians monitoring more than 700 self-treating patients were interviewed. The results strongly support previous indications that helminth therapy can effectively treat a wide range of allergies, autoimmune conditions, and neuropsychiatric disorders, such as major depression and anxiety disorders.

This study assessed the cross-sectional association between carbohydrate intake, cognitive performance, and cerebral amyloid-β (Aβ) load in CN older adults, genotyped for APOEɛ4 allele carrier status. Greater carbohydrate intake was associated with poorer performance in verbal memory in APOEɛ4 allele non-carriers, and poorer performance in attention in APOEɛ4 allele carriers.

This study found that meal fatty acid composition modulates postprandial serum endotoxin concentration in healthy adults. However, postprandial endotoxin was not associated with systemic inflammation in vivo.

This study collected data from 200 participants from a previous study of non-celiac wheat sensitivity (NCWS). Those who adhered strictly to a gluten-free diet (98%) had reduced symptoms. Researchers conclude that NCWS is a persistent condition.

This study suggests that greater adherence to the Paleolithic diet pattern and greater adherence to the Mediterranean diet pattern may be similarly associated with lower risk of incident, sporadic colorectal adenomas.
