Dear Valued Subscriber,    


Did you know that left atrial enlargement is associated with increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Vitamin D is linked to lower cardiovascular morbidity, possibly modifying cardiac structure and function. Researchers in an American Heart Journal study assessed the effect of an activated vitamin D analog on left atrial volume index (LAVi). Forty-eight weeks of therapy reduced LAVi and stemmed the rise of thepeptide associated with enlargement. In a population where only few therapies alter cardiovascular related morbidity and mortality, these results warrant excitement.


Have a happy, healthy week. Bonnie and Steve Minsky


Diet Soda a Doozie for Diabetes Damage.

Bonnie: Remember how many health professionals bought into the soft drink industry's propaganda and pushed diet soft drinks as an alternative to regular soft drinks for diabetes prevention? Thanks goodness that I stuck with my intuition and shunned them. 


As more research trickles in about artificially sweetened beverages, one of the most damaging studies I have seen was published last week inAmerican Journal of Clinical Nutrition.


Not only did artificially sweetened beverages increase the risk of type 2 diabetes at all levels of consumption, but subjects who drank the highest daily amount were at double the risk of those who drank sugar-sweetened beverages! 


Let's repeat that. Diet soda drinkers were at DOUBLE the risk of type 2 diabetes than regular soda drinkers in the highest daily consumption category. 


I would like to note that both artificially sweetened and sweetened beverages increased the risk of type 2 diabetes at ALL consumption levels. The well structured study followed 66,000 women over 18 years.


While this finding may seem stunning, if you understand how the body handles artificial sweeteners, it should not come as a surprise. Simply, the more chemicals you ingest, the more your diabetes risk increases. Your fat cells proliferate in order to house the chemicals as a protective mechanism. Extra fat cells add weight and lead to insulin resistance.


More than anything, I feel for those who were led to believe that these beverages were the answer to avoiding diabetes and have been consuming them for much of their lives. Not all is lost for them, however. There are myriad chemical-free options for managing blood sugar diseases.
