Melanoma is in the news, with the Presidential candidacy of John McCain. His recent physical showed that there is no reoccurrence of his three time bout with skin cancer that led to extensive head and neck surgery eight years ago. As Nicholas Lowe, MD of UCLA Medical School points out in "Reverse Aging Now", it’s only recently that we’ve grown to realize how harmful the sun can be to skin. Tanning is the first reaction of the skin to damage. It is not a sign of health. If you venture out in the sun for more than just a few minutes, use plenty of sun block or protective clothing. Basting on a beach for protracted periods this summer is asking for trouble.        
                                       
Melanoma has increased dramatically in the US in recent years. The disease is curable if caught early enough. If you allow it to metastasize, it could kill you. Dermatologists suggest this alphabetic memory device for self examination, ABCDE . Be concerned about any moles that show Asymmetrical shape, a Border that isn‘t regular a Color that changes within the mole itself, or a Diameter that is larger than a ¼ inch, that is Evolving into something else.      
                                       
   

Last month, we discussed how a shortage of Vitamin D, the sunshine vitamin was implicated in breast cancer. A study release this month shows that people with a vitamin D shortage have more than double the normal risk of suffering a heart attack. This was a large study of more than 18,000 men conducted by Edward Giovannucci, MD, ScD of the Harvard School of Public Health as reported in the Archives of Internal Medicine.

Most researchers in the field are now taking supplements of 1,500 IU's per day although the government's official recommended daily allowance is only 400 IU a day for those between 51-70. Increasing by 200 IU for those older. Be sure to take less if you spend a lot of time in the sun. For Caucasians, 20 minutes a day at noon should be enough. Darker skinned people need up to four times the same sun exposure to avoid a deficiency. Sun block interferes with Vitamin D production by our skin. So there is a tradeoff here between getting enough sun for health, but not too much.

     
                               
                                       

Niacin, the B vitamin has emerged as a natural anti-cholesterol remedy, but many patients are simply not taking it as suggested by their physicians Why? flushing, a severe reddening of the skin caused by niacin's role in leading prostaglandin to dilate blood vessels. According to Dr. Michale Koren of the Jacksonville Center for Clinical Research, a new drug, Cordaptive, manufactured by Merk offers all of the cholesterol lowering effects of niacin, without the flushing. The results have been recently reported in a study of 5000 patients. The study is currently under FDA review.

If you are taking niacin, and want to prevent flushing, the effect can be partially blocked by taking aspirin, 30 minutes before swallowing a dose of time release niacin.

  Having a big belly is now linked to a higher risk of dementia. In a recent study of 6,583 adults of those between 40-45, those with a big gut are three times more likely than others to develop. Alzheimer's Disease. In fact, belly fat is a higher risk factor than heredity, which only accounts for a doubling of Alzheimer's chances. Rachel A. Whitmer, PhD, the lead author of the Kaiser Permanente study says that need to look at not only weight, but where it is carried. Belly fat has already been linked to a slew of diseases including diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, heart disease, gallbladder disease, sleep apnea and several types of cancer.The old standbys diet and exercise seem to be the best way to keep belly fat off.

Natural Immune Boosters
In "Reverse Aging Now," Dean Ornish, MD emphasized that a whole grain vegetable based diet is laden with anti-cancer properties. In fact researchers have known for a while that cruciferous vegetables including broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower and kale, produce a chemical, Diindolylmethane also known as DIM, that stops the growth of certain cancer cells. But now researchers at the University of California at Berkeley find that DIM may also help fortify the immune response, according to the results of a new study in mice.

Leonard Bjeldanes, PhD, the study's principal investigator, notes these vegetables are rich source of a variety of vitamins and minerals.

     
Also, they are extremely low in calories and fat, making them a must add to the diet of anybody who is looking to practice the nutrient dense low calorie diet advocated by Roy Walford, MD and Barry Sears PhD in "Reverse Aging Now."
