Mediterranean Diet Delivers Mood Boost

Dr. Miguel Angel Martinez-Gonzalez and colleagues published their findings that demonstrated the value of a mediterranean diet with mood in the October, 2009 edition of the Archives of General Psychiatry.

Benefits of this type of diet have also been repeatedly observed with cardiac health.

Lower rates of cardiac death are seen in persons with a history of heart attacks (myocardial infarctions.)

Research also suggests benefit in terms of cognitive function. Among the elderly, lower rates of dementia have been observed.

Fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts and olive oil are hallmarks of this diet. Dairy, meat and eggs are eaten in small quantities. Fish may be favored over these other nutrient-dense, high protein foods.

Electronic MENDWise


Carl R. Hansen, Jr., M.D.
President and Creator of Premium Brain Support

Beginning October 2009, we are publishing an electronic version of MENDWise because of the feedback received from readers who wanted to see it resume publication after a yearlong hiatus.

This interruption in publication was precipitated

by two factors, my health and the economic downturn experienced in the last year.

MEND has taken this time to retool and refocus on its primary role in advancing brain health and vitality.

The time has come to resume publication of MENDWise.

The electronic format lends itself to more economic and rapid deployment of information.

Your input and feedback are appreciated as the new format develops. It is essential to keep it dynamic. We aim to deliver you the latest and most trustworthy information about brain health.

How Mercury Enters Food and Environment

After a mercury audit was performed in a Wisconsin chlor-alkali plant it became clear that its mercury contaminated products were used by food ingredient companies.

Sodium hydroxide, also known as caustic soda, is produced in a mercury saline reactor in a chlor-alkali plant.

Such chemicals are used to manufacture food ingredients, such as fructose, corn syrup and high fructose corn syrup.

Scientists have published two reports that have shown mercury ends up in finished food products.

Chlorine is the other product of this electrochemical reaction. Chlorine is used in many products such as bleach.

Besides using it for a cleaning and sanitizing agent, chlorine is also used to bleach flour and sugar.

Vitamin D Cuts Falls

A Swiss researcher at the Center on Aging and Mobility in Zurich, Switzerland confirmed the benefits of Vitamin D with fall prevention among people 65 years and older when they took 700 I.U. to 1000 I.U. daily.

The study suggests higher doses of Vitamin D3 than Vitamin D2 yielded this reduction in risk.

A Vitamin D profile is a useful blood test for determining a person's specific needs for Vitamin D supplementation.
