  • Resetting the Narrative in Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait
           Islander Nutrition Research

    • Authors: Wilson A; Wilson R, Delbridge R, et al.
      Abstract: ABSTRACTAs the oldest continuous living civilizations in the world, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have strength, tenacity, and resilience. Initial colonization of the landscape included violent dispossession and removal of people from Country to expand European land tenure and production systems, loss of knowledge holders through frontier violence, and formal government policies of segregation and assimilation designed to destroy ontological relationships with Country and kin. The ongoing manifestations of colonialism continue to affect food systems and food knowledges of Aboriginal peoples, and have led to severe health inequities and disproportionate rates of nutrition-related health conditions. There is an urgent need to collaborate with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to address nutrition and its underlying determinants in a way that integrates Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ understandings of food and food systems, health, healing, and well-being. We use the existing literature to discuss current ways that Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are portrayed in the literature in relation to nutrition, identify knowledge gaps that require further research, and propose a new way forward.

  • Factors Associated with Urinary Iodine Concentration among Women of
           Reproductive Age, 20–49 Years Old, in Tanzania: A Population-Based
           Cross-Sectional Study

    • Authors: Ba D; Ssentongo P, Na M, et al.
      Abstract: ABSTRACTBackgroundUniversal salt iodization (USI) is the most feasible and cost-effective, and equitable, approach to prevent iodine deficiency. Severe maternal iodine deficiency during pregnancy is associated with serious adverse gestational and birth outcomes.ObjectivesThe aim was to assess iodine status and identify independent factors associated with urinary iodine concentration (UIC) among women of reproductive age in Tanzania.MethodsThis was a weighted, population-based, cross-sectional study in 2985 women of reproductive age (20–49 y) in Tanzania who participated in the Demographic and Health Surveys in 2015–2016 (DHS 2015–2016) and had measured UIC. Multivariable generalized linear regression was used to identify potential factors that were associated with UIC.ResultsThe median UICs among women consuming inadequately iodized salt (93.6 μg/L; 25th and 75th percentiles: 43.1, 197.9 μg/L) and women in the lowest socioeconomic status (92.3 μg/L; 45.6, 194.4 μg/L) were below the WHO-recommended ranges (≥150 μg/L for pregnant women and ≥100 μg/L for nonpregnant women). The results of multivariable models indicated that pregnant women had 1.21 μg/L lower UIC than nonpregnant women (β = −1.21; 95% CI: −3.42, −0.12), breastfeeding women had 1.02 μg/L lower UIC than nonbreastfeeding women (β = −1.02; 95% CI: −2.25, −0.27), and women with no education had a 1.88 μg/L lower UIC compared with those with secondary/highest education (β = −1.88; 95% CI: −4.58, −0.36). Women consuming inadequately iodized salt had 6.55 μg/L lower UIC than those consuming adequately iodized salt (β = −6.55; 95% CI: −9.24, −4.33). The median UIC varied substantially across geographic zones, ranging from 83.2 μg/L (45.9, 165.3) in the Western region to 347.8 μg/L (185.0, 479.8) in the Eastern region.ConclusionsOur findings indicated a great heterogeneity in median UIC across regions of Tanzania among women of reproductive age. Poverty, consuming inadequately iodized salt, and lack of education appeared to be the driving factors for lower UIC in Tanzania.

  • Anemia and Micronutrient Status during Pregnancy, and Their Associations
           with Obstetric and Infant Outcomes among HIV-Infected Ugandan Women
           Receiving Antiretroviral Therapy

    • Authors: Finkelstein J; Herman H, Plenty A, et al.
      Abstract: ABSTRACTBackgroundWomen living with HIV (WLHIV) are at higher risk of micronutrient deficiencies and adverse health outcomes. There are limited data on the burden or sequelae of micronutrient deficiencies among pregnant WLHIV receiving antiretroviral therapy (ART).ObjectivesWe aimed to examine anemia and vitamin B-12, folate, and vitamin D deficiencies, and their associations with obstetric and infant outcomes, among pregnant WLHIV initiating combination antiretroviral therapy (cART) in rural Uganda.MethodsThis was a prospective analysis among pregnant WLHIV (12–28 weeks of gestation) in PROMOTE-Pregnant Women and Infants (PIs), a randomized trial comparing the effects of protease inhibitor (PI)-based ART with those of a non-PI-based ART on placental malaria risk. We conducted a substudy on the burden of anemia [trimester 1/3: hemoglobin (Hb) <11.0 g/dL; trimester 2: Hb <10.5 g/dL; n = 367] and micronutrient deficiencies (n = 127) in pregnant WLHIV and their associations with obstetric and infant outcomes. Hb was measured by cyanmethemoglobin, vitamin B-12 and folate were measured via electrochemiluminescence, and vitamin D was measured by ELISA. Linear and binomial regression were used to evaluate associations between micronutrient status during pregnancy and perinatal outcomes.Results26.8% women were anemic, 30.2% were vitamin B-12 insufficient (<221.0 pmol/L), 66.1% were folate insufficient (<13.5 nmol/L), and 65.4% were vitamin D insufficient (<30.0 ng/mL) at enrollment. Anemia during pregnancy was associated with a greater risk of small for gestational age (SGA) (RR: 1.88; 95% CI: 1.28, 2.77; P = 0.001); each 1-g/dL decrease in Hb was associated with greater risk of SGA (RR: 0.76; 95% CI: 0.65, 0.90; P = 0.001). Multivariate models showed that increased vitamin D concentrations predicted lower risk of infant wasting (WLZ < −2; RR: 0.94; 95% CI: 0.89, 0.99; P = 0.04). Multivariate models also indicated that maternal vitamin B-12 and folate concentrations at enrollment predicted maternal (P < 0.001) and infant (P = 0.02) concentrations postpartum.ConclusionsAnemia and micronutrient deficiencies are associated with a variety of adverse obstetric and infant outcomes and are an important public health concern in perinatal WLHIV on cART and their children.This trial was registered at clinicaltrials.gov as NCT00993031.

  • Findings of a Pilot Study Investigating the Effects of Mediterranean Diet
           and Aerobic Exercise on Cognition in Cognitively Healthy Older People
           Living Independently within Aged-Care Facilities: The Lifestyle
           Intervention in Independent Living Aged Care (LIILAC) Study

    • Authors: Hardman R; Meyer D, Kennedy G, et al.
      Abstract: ABSTRACTBackgroundCognitive decline and Alzheimer disease are more prevalent in our aging population. Modifiable risk factors, such as diet and sedentary lifestyle, have been proposed as key to potentially ameliorating cognitive decline. Both exercise and Mediterranean diet (MedDiet) have been linked to reduced levels of cardiovascular disease and other comorbidities. Higher levels of exercise and MedDiet adherence may prove to be cognitively protective, both individually and synergistically.ObjectivesThe aim was to investigate the effect of a 6-mo program of MedDiet, exercise, and a combination of both, on cognition, mood, and general health in older persons living independently in aged-care communities.MethodsThe Lifestyle Intervention in Independent Living Aged Care (LIILAC) Study (ACTRN12614001133628) involved 102 participants, aged 60–90 y, who were randomly assigned to 1 of 4 intervention groups. Change in overall memory performance was assessed as the primary outcome. Additionally, changes in cognitive task performance, as well as mood, wellness, cardiovascular function, and blood biomarkers, were investigated.ResultsWhile there was no significant change in overall memory performance, there was a significant improvement in spatial working memory performance in the combined exercise and diet group, relative to controls. This combined intervention group also showed an overall improvement in their emotional state, as assessed by the Depression Anxiety Stress Scale, as did the exercise-only group.ConclusionsThis research indicates that diet and exercise programs have the potential to improve aspects of cognition and mood in an aging population. However, given the lower than optimal sample size and lack of resources to reinforce the interventions during the trial, further larger randomized controlled trials are required to substantiate whether the introduction of diet and exercise programs into independent-living facilities is a viable method to preserve cognitive health in older people.

  • Perceived Advantages and Disadvantages of Online Grocery Shopping among
           Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children
           (WIC) Participants in Eastern North Carolina

    • Authors: Jilcott Pitts S; Ng S, Blitstein J, et al.
      Abstract: ABSTRACTThis study's purpose was to qualitatively examine perceived advantages and disadvantages of online grocery shopping among participants (n = 7) in the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC). Initial in-depth, qualitative interviews were conducted, after which participants completed an episode of online grocery shopping, picked up the online order at the store, and completed an in-store shopping episode and a follow-up in-depth interview. Interviews were audio-recorded, transcribed verbatim, and analyzed deductively. Participants stated that in-store impulse purchases occurred at the check-out and cookie aisles and included chips and candy, but sometimes healthier foods such as fruit. Advantages of online grocery shopping included ease, convenience, and saving time. Disadvantages included inadequate substitutions, the online shopping fee, lack of control over selection of perishable goods, and inability to find good deals online versus in the store. Further research is needed to determine how to encourage healthy grocery purchases online.

  • ¡Sí, Yo Puedo Vivir Sano con Diabetes! A Self-Management Randomized
           Controlled Pilot Trial for Low-Income Adults with Type 2 Diabetes in
           Mexico City

    • Authors: Whittemore R; Vilar-Compte M, De La Cerda S, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractBackgroundType 2 diabetes (T2D) is a worldwide epidemic and a leading cause of death in Mexico, with a prevalence of 15.9%, and >70% of diagnosed adults have poor glycemic control [glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) >7.5%]. We developed a diabetes self-management education program contextualized to the study population, including dietary preferences, health literacy, and health system.ObjectivesWe aimed to evaluate the efficacy of a self-management + text message program (¡Sí, Yo Puedo Vivir Sano con Diabetes!) on primary (HbA1c), and secondary behavioral (self-management), clinical, and psychosocial outcomes in adults with T2D in Mexico City.MethodsParticipants were recruited at public primary healthcare centers (Seguro Popular), and randomly allocated to treatment (n = 26) or wait-list control groups (n = 21) with data collected at 3 and 6 mo. The program included 7 weekly sessions and 6 mo of daily text/picture messages. Descriptive statistics and a generalized linear mixed model with intent-to-treat analysis were calculated.ResultsParticipants were 55.5 ± 8.8 y of age (mean ± SD), 68% female, 88.6% overweight/obese, and 57% lived in food-insecure households. Mean ± SD T2D duration was 11.9 ± 7.8 y and HbA1c was 9.2% ± 1.5%. There was 89% attendance at sessions and 6.4% attrition across both groups at 6 mo. Group-by-time effects were seen in self-monitoring of blood glucose (P < 0.01) and diabetes self-efficacy (P < 0.04); and a trend for lower HbA1c was seen in the intervention group at 6 mo (P = 0.11). Significant improvements in dietary behavior (P < 0.01) were demonstrated in the intervention group over time, but this did not reach statistical significance compared with the control group.ConclusionsThe program was associated with clinically significant improvements in T2D self-management, self-efficacy, and HbA1c over time. Thus, T2D self-management skills, including diet, were improved in a vulnerable metropolitan population.This trial was registered at clinicaltrials.gov as NCT03159299.

  • Nutrition Transition and Health Outcomes Among Indigenous Populations of
           Chile

    • Authors: Fernández C.
      Abstract: AbstractBackgroundOver the past several decades, rural and indigenous populations in Latin America have experienced abrupt and profound transformations in their lifestyles and economies, many having remarkable health consequences. Yet, these changes have had heterogeneous effects on the population's biology in different local contexts.ObjectivesThe primary goal was to characterize the nutrition transition and biomarkers of noncommunicable diseases (NCD) risk in 2 Chilean indigenous populations that have had divergent histories of subsistence strategies (agropastoralism compared with hunter-gathering) in the last few millennia and live in contrasting environments, and to identify context-specific factors driving the nutrition and epidemiological transitions.MethodsOne-hundred-and-ninety (90 Pehuenche and 100 Atacameño) participants aged 18–87 y completed demographic, food-frequency, and physical activity questionnaires as well as measurements of some NCD risk biomarkers: blood pressure, weight, height, body fat percentage, waist circumference, blood total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, and glucose. Framingham risk scores (FRSs) were calculated based on age, sex, total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, systolic blood pressure, smoking, diabetes status, and hypertension medication.ResultsFew differences in dietary composition and physical activity patterns were observed between the 2 populations. Multivariate analyses showed no differences between the 2 populations in any of the individual NCD risk biomarkers or FRSs after adjusting for age, sex, time since last meal, food insecurity in childhood, ultraprocessed food consumption, and physical activity.ConclusionsDespite contrasting ecological and historical contexts, the 2 groups are converging into similar processes of market and wage-labor integration and transitioning to a Western diet high in processed and nonlocal foods, although some aspects of their “traditional” foodways are still in practice. The frequency of individuals exhibiting NCD biomarkers “at-risk” is relatively high and corresponds to other populations that have gone through nutrition transition. Furthermore, none of these biomarkers or FRSs differed between the 2 populations, suggesting a homogenization in the NCD risk factors.

  • Citrus Peel Flavonoids as Potential Cancer Prevention Agents

    • Authors: Koolaji N; Shammugasamy B, Schindeler A, et al.
      Abstract: ABSTRACTCitrus fruit and in particular flavonoid compounds from citrus peel have been identified as agents with utility in the treatment of cancer. This review provides a background and overview regarding the compounds found within citrus peel with putative anticancer potential as well as the associated in vitro and in vivo studies. Historical studies have identified a number of cellular processes that can be modulated by citrus peel flavonoids including cell proliferation, cell cycle regulation, apoptosis, metastasis, and angiogenesis. More recently, molecular studies have started to elucidate the underlying cell signaling pathways that are responsible for the flavonoids’ mechanism of action. These growing data support further research into the chemopreventative potential of citrus peel extracts, and purified flavonoids in particular. This critical review highlights new research in the field and synthesizes the pathways modulated by flavonoids and other polyphenolic compounds into a generalized schema.
