Researchers at the University of Washington have been able to illuminate brain tumors by injecting fluorescent nanoparticles into the bloodstream that safely cross the blood-brain barrier — an almost impenetrable barrier that protects the brain from infection. The nanoparticles remained in mouse tumors for up to five days and did not show any evidence of damaging the blood-brain barrier, according to results published this week in the journal Cancer Research. | Nanoparticles cross blood-brain barrier to enable ‚brain tumor painting‘ | University of Washington News and Information.

Vitamin D has long been known to assist healthy bones by helping to stimulate bone cells to make new bone while enhancing the uptake of calcium into bones.  Its role in boosting immunity, hormone regulation, brain health, metabolism, diabetes prevention, cancer prevention, and cardiovascular health are just now becoming clear.  The sunshine vitamin appears poised to claim its crown.

All your body organs and cells have receptors for vitamin D, meaning that vitamin D communicates all around your body.  Your cells use vitamin D to directly regulate your genes, making it one of the most powerful compounds in human health.  In fact, one study with 2100 female twins showed that having adequate vitamin D extends life by five years.  This is because vitamin D prevents excessive wear and tear to the telomers that are attached to the ends of your chromosomes that enable cell division (determining potential cell lifespan).  This is truly a new era of nutritional science.

It’s official: Vitamin D deficiency is so widespread in U.S. children that it poses a huge threat to the future health of an entire generation. A new study published in the journal Pediatrics paints a disturbing picture of vitamin D deficiency across the population of children aged 1 through 21. Three-fourths of young African American children, for example, are deficient in vitamin D. Much the same pattern holds true for Mexican American children. Even white kids, with their fairer skin and greater vitamin D production, hit the charts with 50% – 60% deficiency, depending on the age group.

Artificial Night Lights Increase Cancer Risk
LAN (= Light at Night) increases breast cancer risk for women and prostate cancer risk for men. It seems that our modern life style provides too much light at night and not enough daylight. Regarding the melatonin levels at night time it turns out, that so called energy saving lamps (CFLS) are more efficient to suppress melatonin compared to incandescent lamps due to the higher portion of blue light. This higher proportion of blue is found in the light of ALL fluorescent lamps regardless their correlated color temperature (CCT). Melatonin sets the organs into the regeneration mode and acts as an antioxidant. It also synchronizes the organ clocks with the central body clock which is located in the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) in the mid brain. Melatonin is also able to reduce the energy production in mitochondria in order to set the cells to regeneration mode during nighttime.
