Hello Everyone,. I found another article on Clinical nutrition therapy in diabetes type 2. As  mention before Diabetes is a chronic disorder characterized by high blood glucose level and/or insufficient or ineffective insulin. This syndrome of carbohydrate intolerance is due to the altered beta cell function [1] Normally blood glucose depends on two processes. When the liver receives signals that the blood glucose is too low in the body and in the absence of fuel (carbohydrates) glucagon a hormone signals the liver to break down the glycogen (glucose storage) to be use as energy. When blood glucose is too high after eating carbohydrates (glucose) the pancreas receives a signal to release insulin, the insulin will work as a form of transportation to facilitated glucose to enter the cell and use it for energy. In Diabetes mellitus the cell stop responding to insulin and glucose fail to enter the cell. That means that the cell is not getting the glucose need it for survival, and elevate

Vitamins and Minerals & Cardiovascular Health   Cardiovascular Disease: Evidence suggested that high blood cholesterol levels increase the risk for heart disease. Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Hypertension, myocardial infarction and strokes are one of the main concerns in the Public Health along with the current obesity epidemic. The dietary factor that directly target the progression of the CVD was found on the framework for modern nutritional epidemiology research [1].   The study was based on most Western diets that consist on refined starch, sugars and saturated fat intake like artificial syrups, sodas, sugary cereals, white rice, bread and white pasta. Saturated fat foods like fatty beef, lamb, pork, butter, cream and cheese. From a chemical standpoint, saturated fats are simply fat molecules that have no double bonds between carbon molecules and they are solid at
Different research has shown that we are what we eat. In many cases diseases including cancer, metabolic illness, inflammation and many others are not only caused by a genetic mutation or a generic activation but by changes on the epigenome. Epigenome is involved with the process in which the DNA code read to make proteins. Recently researchers discovered that these epigenetic changes could activate genes that cause tumor growth. What is suggested is that what we eat and the quantity of what we eat has a specific chemical composition that it will affect directly our gene expression. For example the cruciferous vegetable family are popular for their protective anti-cancer genes. This article focuses on gene expression by epigenetics composition and lifestyle. I do agree with the complexity of gene expression and the relationship of epigenome and its environment. However, there is more research need it in this area to be able to make clinical recommendations. The
