Infections during infancy are associated with increased risk for gluten intolerance (celiac disease) later on. Apparently the risk is particularly high in the case of repeated gastrointestinal infections in the first year of life. This conclusion was drawn by scientists of the Institute for Diabetes Research at Helmholtz Zentrum München, a partner in the German Center for Diabetes Research (DZD), after analyzing data provided by the Bavarian Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians. Results from this study have now been published in the current issue of the ‘American Journal of Epidemiology’.

A new study shows that whole tomato extracts from two different Southern Italy cultivars inhibit gastric cancer cell growth and malignant features, paving the way for future studies aimed at implementing lifestyle habits not only for prevention, but potentially as a support to conventional therapies.
People with Type 1 diabetes exhibit inflammation in the digestive tract and gut bacteria—a pattern that differs from individuals who do not have diabetes or those who have celiac disease, according to a new study published in the Endocrine Society’s Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.
Inflammation has long been associated with cancer. COX enzymes play an integral role in inflammation. NSAIDs act on COX enzymes to reduce inflammation. The efficacy of NSAIDs was considered in cancer prevention and on survival thereafter. Aspirin was found to be the most superior NSAID but it also prolonged the survival of cancer patients and provided anti-thrombotic protection.
