Abstract. The incidence of metabolic syndrome (MetS) has been increasing globally and it is recognized as a major public health problem because MetS is associated with increased risk of diabetes, stroke, cancer, and other chronic diseases. Recently, MetS has been linked to vitamin D deficiency. However, the evidence on the association between vitamin ...

drug induced nutrient depletion

Oral contraceptives and changes in nutritional requirements
Oral contraceptives (OCs) are a major class of prescription drug, used by a large proportion of women starting from early adolescence. Much research has been conducted to investigate the physiological changes that occur in women who take OCs. These include changes in general health as well as in nutritional needs. In terms of nutrition, several studies investigated whether women on OCs ...

hypothesis article: body triage when micronutrient input low

some interesting thoughts here
Ames, B. N. (2006). Low micronutrient intake may accelerate the degenerative diseases of aging through allocation of scarce micronutrients by triage. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 103(47), 17589-17594.

Inadequate dietary intakes of vitamins and minerals are widespread, most likely due to excessive consumption of energy-rich, micronutrient-poor, refined food. Inadequate intakes may result in chronic metabolic disruption, including mitochondrial decay. Deficiencies in many ...

WOW read this. compares cu:zn in Alzheimer's and MS.

From other sources, optimal serum cu:zn = 0.7-1.0

Serum copper zinc ratios

Healthy Controls (perfect, serum zinc is a little higher than serum copper)

per control group in an MS study...0.71 (see study dtls below. cu:zn basically perfect, if anything at the extreme end of optimal; this zinc level is unusually high esp in relation to copper)

Alzheimer's (bad, copper is high in relation to zinc)

Patient 1.......1.8
Patient 2.......1.6
Patient 3 n/a
Patient 4.......0.94 ...

Blood Tests Canada

ontario centric, so far. has some useful tests for our purposes, but not all. also looks more expensive than ...
