Study Finds That Nutrition Is Important To Immune Health

September 17, 2010 by  

Study finds that nutrition is important to immune health Various studies have shown many benefits to proper nutrition. Antioxidants have been shown to play a role in decreasing the effects of aging, while certain vitamins are believed to decrease the risk of some chronic diseases.

Now, a new study conducted by researchers from Alberta University has found that high levels of nutrients may give a significant boost to the immune system. Researchers said that results could provide an avenue to better health for millions of individuals.

Richard Lamb, who led the study, said that high levels of vitamins and nutrients increases the production of certain amino acids that signal the immune system when the body is under attack from viruses and bacteria.

These amino acids also play a role reducing inflammation throughout the body, which is a factor that increases the risk of heart disease and some cancers. Well-nourished immune cells are vital to this process.

"This is a major work," said Lamb. "If this holds true it shows that one aspect of nutrition that is critical is the level of amino acids."

    People in healthcare circles have known for years that the condition of an immune system is the key to good health. Mess with your immune system, and you’ll attract health problems the way crap attracts flies.
    It is a S A D fact that the medical establishment does little or nothing to help Americans to fine-tune their immune system(s). In effect, we’re on our own when it comes to good health. Here’s to your good health – and here’s to extreme comeuppance to the AMA, the FDA and the SOBs at Big Pharma.

    I thoroughly saddens me and angers me at the same time, when I see the Mainstream Medical Establishment hoist their Rx Drugs and barbaric medical procedures on an unsuspecting, trusting and largely ignorant public, all in the name of profit and maintaining & feeding off a significant segment of society, keeping them in a constant state of illness. The evidence is overwhelming, going back to the likes of Morris Fishbein, head of the AMA, in his time, as well as, the FDA monster, that continues to approve the dangerous Rx Drug mills concoctions that are exposing and causing harm to the health of its users, via their trusted MDs. The Food Manufacturers, as well as, the Personal Care Products purveyors are equally suspect due to the host of artifical, and harmful ingredients that are KNOWN to cause human health ailments, across the board. The whole system is ROTTEN.
    So, let the consumer beware and always question perceived authority, especially, when it comes to someone who wants to slice ‘n dice you, Chemo and /or radiate you, and subscribe you Rx Pills that can certainly cause one further harm.
    There are good Alternatives available, if one just chooses to look and do the research. Start with your current diet and correct your consumption & exposure to artificial, synthetic, chemically laced ingredients at are problematic and dangerous to human health.
    Remember… You are what you eat and drink.. Start there.
