John Aloia, of Winthrop University Hospital in Mineola, N.Y., said in a news release from the Endocrine Society. For the study, published Sept. 24 in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, the researchers examined bone turnover in 159 postmenopausal women. Bone turnover is the body’s natural process for breaking down old bone. Young people produce enough new bone to replace what is lost, but bone mass in women begins to decline after age 30, and this loss speeds up after menopause.

Vitamins and Vitamin Supplements: Use Increases in America

“People are looking for help with what they believe is a problem but trying to solve it the wrong way,” said Dr. Darwin Deen, clinical professor in the department of family and social medicine at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York. “Our diet contains too many processed foods that do not have the nutrients we need to keep us healthy — soda and chips — so people respond by taking vitamins.” Deen said he usually advises his patients to increase their intake of fruits and vegetables to boost their vitamin count, rather than take a pill. “The pill is a nice idea, but we have no reason to think this one-size-fits-all dose makes any sense for each individual,” said Deen. Lead author Gahche said the report makes no recommendations on whether or not a person should or should not use dietary supplements.

New Website Launched for Liquid Health Brain Health Supplement

pointed out that glucosamine supplements can cost up to 1 per day, while a multivitamin could cost as little as 3p per day. Both could contain vitamin C, which has proven health benefits, as opposed to glucosamine that has none. The consumer groups executive director, Richard Lloyd, said: Its worrying that some manufacturers arent playing fair on the packaging of food supplements. We have campaigned for health claims on these products to be backed up by scientific evidence, so its disappointing that manufacturers are still using clever language to imply unproven benefits. Graham Keen, director of the Health Food Manufacturers Association (HFMA), hit back saying: This new report is inaccurate as it infers that manufacturers are misleading their customers which is simply not true. ‘Just because a certain ingredient does not have an EFSA-approved claim, does not mean that it doesnt have a beneficial effect. He said the reason that EFSA has rejected many claims made for these products is because the assessment process has been too strict.

French moving to ban child beauty pageants: Should we?

The reality show "Toddlers & Tiaras," showcasing little ones all dolled up and going head to head in pageants, has been ratings magic for the cable channel TLC. Click through to see how the child beauty pageant has been a central character in other popular television shows and hit movies.

“I do not like it when children who are not able to make choices on their own are forced to be in pageants and that is when I see the over-glamourization of young girls,” said Westmoreland, who is a media coordinator and writer for CNN’s food blog, Eatocracy. “They don’t even look like children anymore. They look like objects.” Tish Howard, a former school principal, is no fan of child pageants, but like Westmoreland, thinks government should not be deciding what programs are acceptable for children. Stay in touch! Don’t miss out on the conversation we’re having at CNN Living.
