References are a vital part of the support system for RightWay Vitamins. Many thousands have been researched over the last five years. Just the top ones will be listed here that convey proof or direction needed to establish concepts and theories, with a few counter or opposite view points as well. Here are some of the health newsletters that have contributed to this knowledge:

Tufts University "Health & Nutrition Letter, Harvard School of Public Health Letters, Environmental Health, "Nutriton Action" from the Center for Science in the Public Interest, Dr Andrew Weil's "Self Healing", Berkeley Wellness, the American Institute for Cancer Research e-newsletter (aicr.org),  John Hopkins White Papers, The Vanderbuilt Wellness website,

 GENERAL DIETARY INFORMATION

Pubmed is the site where the Institute of Medicine publishes all the research studies printed. You can go to the general PUBMED.GOV site and put any topic and bring up all studies. When in a study, top right has a button to see related studies. One of the best government sites for nutrient research studies. Easy to use, but perhaps hard to understand some of the scientific language and symbols representing various cell elements, enzymes, etc.

ods.od.nih.gov/factsheets/manesium.asp     This is the definitive site for ABC's of vitamins. Office of Dietary Supplements, National Institutes of Health. Check out the Dietary Supplement Factsheets. Magnesium opens, click on Office of Dietary Supplements at top to see all. From here you can access many other government sites. IBIDS, International Bibliographic Information on Dietary Supplements has study abstracts on all the federally funded research. Safety issues are covered. The factsheets are very complete, even including studies that support vitamin use.

grande.nal.usda.gov/ibids/index.php   This government site has a very complete index of study abstracts, with many in the same window. You can put any nutrient in the box to bring up reference studies.

The China Oxford Cornell Project       http://webarchive.human.cornell.edu/chinaproject/index.html  This is one of the largest studies ever attempted. Good information coming out of this project. Something like 50,000 families. Click on results and implications buttons near the top for some nitty gritty info. 

www.hsph.harvard.edu/nutritionsource HARVARD SCHOOL OF PUBLIC HEALTH, nutrition sources.   This is excellent not only for vitamin info but for many related health topics. Be sure to read the Calcium and Milk section. Harvard presents both the good and the cautions.

Nurses Health Study I & II. These studies represent over 230,000 nurses observed for almost 20 years. Hundreds of research projects have analyzed this data. 

Here are some of the many studies from this large reaearch project. These are just some of the 2005 publications.

The United States Department of Agriculture conducts many research projects, check out the year reports for some examples. Here is a good one on Osteoporosis. Be sure to see this vitamin K summary study also. General site is ars.usda.gov In the search window, type in any vitamin or nutrient to see list of studies USDA is working on or has completed.

FRUCTOSE

http://nutritionandmetabolism.com/content/2/1/5  Read this now. Stop buying products with high fructose corn syrup.

http://www.ajcn.org/cgi/content/full/72/5/1128 Study of fructose on blood fat levels  

Dietary Fructose or Fructose Containing Sweeteners Negatively Impacting Health 

Consuming as little as 40-50 grams or slightly over 1.5-ounce fructose over a 10 hour period may increase blood pressure, blood triglycerides, reduced insulin binding & insulin sensitivity, and increase fat weight gain. The disturbing fact is that the general population has been consuming more than that amount every day for the past 34 years. Total fructose consumed per person from combined consumption of sucrose and high-fructose corn syrup has increased by +26%, from 64 g/d in 1970 to 81 g/d in 1997.
As Body Mass Index increases (fat weight gain), the increased risk of insulin resistance, impaired glucose tolerance, hyper-insulinemia, hyper-triacylglycerolemia, and hypertension may occur. Full article at:
http://www.afpafitness.com/articles/dietaryfructosenegativelyimpactinghealth.htm 

Above site may not be working anymore, add "fructose" to search window in website and some articles come up but not the above mentioned article.  Site More information than the average consumer needs, but interesting to view and catch a phrase here or there. Fructose has to be stopped. This is some of the science supported with pictures and graphs.

Obesity research has more supportive studies. Make sure you check out the links to referenced studies.

See Consumer Alert for other studies.

 

CANCER

aicr.com    American Institute of Cancer Research. Check out the article on Soy. Dr Diane Birt is sponsored by AICR grants to study cancer. Her major study is on cellular metabolism and overeating. It appears that the overconsumption of calories increases cancer risk more than the dietary fat level.  Two interesting food nutrients she is also studying; apigenin from parsley, celery, and lettuce plus resveratrol from grapes.
