FROM #ASN BLOGGER SARAH PURCELL... How Can We Implement Better Health Behaviors in Cancer Survivors?
Lifestyle interventions designed to obtain or maintain a healthy body weight have great potential in improving outcomes in cancer survivors. A balanced diet and moderate exercise can improve prognosis, quality of life, physical function, and survival across the cancer continuum.
The American Cancer Society, National Comprehensive Cancer Network, and American College of Sports Medicine have all released lifestyle guidelines for cancer survivors. However, as #ASN Blogger Sarah Purcell explains, "implementing changes in individuals and healthcare systems is challenging, to say the least."
Iron and Vitamin D – Impacts on the Microbiome Tuesday, November 28, 2017 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm (ET)
Just announced on NutriLink, the American Society for Nutrition's (#ASN) Vitamins and Minerals Research Interest Section has developed a webinar about the significant impacts of the intestinal microbiota on the nutritional health and metabolism of the host. Both iron and vitamin D are essential nutrients that dramatically alter the intestinal microbiome. This program will present current, mechanistic information linking iron and vitamin D from dietary and supplementary sources to the microbiome and the potential beneficial or adverse effects on the health of humans and animals.

JUST PUBLISHED IN CURRENT DEVELOPMENTS IN NUTRITION (#CDN)... The Impact of Policies to Reduce Trans Fat Consumption: A Systematic Review of the Evidence
The consumption of industrially produced trans fatty acids has been associated with an increased risk of heart disease. In recognition of this, countries, states, and cities have implemented trans fatty acid policies to reduce their availability in the food supply. The authors of this study reviewed the evidence to determine how effective these policies are.
According to the findings, policies aimed at reducing trans fatty acids in the food supply are effective and will likely reduce the burden of diet-related disease, particularly among the most vulnerable socioeconomic groups. Although all policy approaches led to reductions of trans fatty acids in food, the authors conclude that full bans are likely the most effective, economical, and equitable policy approach to reducing trans fatty acids in the food supply.
