    1. Infant Overdose Risk With Liquid Vitamin D

      Infant Overdose Risk With Liquid Vitamin D
      The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning of the potential risk of overdosing infants with liquid vitamin D. Some liquid vitamin D supplement products on the market come with droppers that could allow parents and caregivers to accidentally give harmful amounts of the vitamin to an infant. These droppers can hold a greater amount of liquid vitamin D than an infant should receive.

    2. Evidence in Mice May Spur More Research on Fish Oil and Curcumin for Alzheimer's Disease

      Evidence in Mice May Spur More Research on Fish Oil and Curcumin for Alzheimer's Disease
      A popular dietary supplement and a curry spice may affect Alzheimer's disease–related chemical processes in the brain, according to a study reported in The Journal of Neuroscience. Alzheimer's disease is the most common form of dementia in older people. This study, which used an animal (mouse) model of Alzheimer's disease, builds on previous research linking the disease to peptides (amino acid chains) called β‑amyloids and to defective insulin-processing by the brain. A particular β‑amyloid, Aβ‑42, is associated with Alzheimer's disease. There is also epidemiological evidence—type II diabetes appears to increase the risk of Alzheimer's disease—to suggest a connection between insulin resistance and the disease.

      Acupuncture Shows Possible Effect for Tension Headaches
      Headaches affect millions of Americans. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, about 45 million Americans suffer from chronic headaches. Tension-type headaches (or tension headaches)—characterized by pain or discomfort from tense or constricted muscles in the head, neck, or scalp—are one of the most common forms of headaches. In most patients, tension headaches occur infrequently and can be treated with over-the-counter pain medicine. However, some people experience these headaches several days per month, or even daily, and may benefit from other treatments.

    5. Green Tea May Help Protect Against Rheumatoid Arthritis

      Green Tea May Help Protect Against Rheumatoid Arthritis
      Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease that affects more than 2.1 million Americans. It is characterized by joint pain, stiffness, inflammation, swelling, and sometimes joint destruction. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are the standard treatment for RA, but their prolonged use is associated with adverse effects and discomfort. Natural plant alternatives like green tea are being investigated for the management of RA. Green tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world, and its polyphenols (substances rich in antioxidants) possess anti-inflammatory properties.

    6. Massage Therapy May Ease Pain and Improve Mood in Advanced Cancer Patients

      Massage Therapy May Ease Pain and Improve Mood in Advanced Cancer Patients
      People with advanced cancer often experience pain that causes physical and emotional distress, which leads to a decrease in functional ability and quality of life. Symptom relief is an important part of end-of-life care, and small studies have suggested that massage therapy may benefit people with advanced cancer. In a study funded in part by NCCAM, researchers investigated the benefits of massage versus simple touch therapy (placing both hands on specific body sites) in patients with advanced cancer. This multisite study—conducted at 15 U.S. hospices in the Population-based Palliative Care Research Network—included 380 participants with advanced cancer who were experiencing moderate-to-severe pain. Participants were randomly assigned to receive six 30-minute treatment sessions of either massage or simple touch therapy over a 2-week period.
