Abstract:

Micronutrient malnutrition affects more thanhalf of the world population. Concerted international and national fortification efforts to combat micronutrient malnutrition are having a positive impact Globally, the threemostcommonforms of micronutrient malnutrition are iron, vitamin A and iodinedeficiencies. Together, they affect at least a third of the world's population, mostly in developing countries. Iron deficiencyis the mostprevalent. It isestimatedthat a little over two billion people are anemicIn Morocco, 32.6% women of RA and 37.2% of pregnant women are anemic, as well as 31.5% of children aged 6 months to 5 years suffer from iron deficiency (ID).

Abstract:

The connection between nutrition and disease is becoming more and more clear.  New science is showing that diagnoses like Alzheimer's, Multiple Sclerosis, Diabetes, Lupus and many other clinical and autoimmune conditions are rooted deeply in the way the body digests, processes and absorbs nutrition and the environment. The current medical standard of care must adapt into collaboration with this new insight. Treating conditions and achieving results involves more than just medication and a seven day meal plan. Approaching wellness from the perspective of what we put in and on our bodies through the five senses - from food, to air, to noise, to vision, to topical products - and how that impacts the body’s homeostasis is key.  We will dive into some of the best practices I have distilled through my experience and success with real world individuals in clinical and functional nutrition, ayurveda, chinese medicine and mindfulness restoring,  replenishing, rejuvenating,  and rebalancing their bodies from the inside out.

Author is a Masters in Food Science and Technology, from Pakistan. With 18 Years of Industrial experience in the field of Research & Development, Quality Assurance and Operation. Author has actively worked with UNICEF, MI and Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition on various Nutritional Support Program.

 

Abstract:

The dilemma a Developing world face in this technological advance era regarding the basic compliance of Food Nutrition is in itself is a challenge to deal with. The world pace is too high and such nutritional deficiency in the population (the very essence of resources) will make it more challenging to meet the further demands.

Such aggressive challenges will require the aggression in terms of strategies and techniques to counter the acute problem. Pakistan is currently facing the nutrition compliance challenge at various segment, especially the rural areas are not just facing a malnutrition, but the basic supply of just healthy meal is still considered as a luxury. Several means and measures are already in process to fight such calamities and however a unique approached was assessed to fulfil the targeted nutrition balance in selected group which shows a promising results.

Despite of Nutrition, Health and Food Safety Challenges, Pakistan in General is a Food Loving Country, we are the one who have not only adopted International cuisine i.e. Chinese, Thai, Japanese, Italian, Middle Eastern, Western etc. but in-fact have modified them to local conventional requirement. This is because Pakistanis are very peculiar in taste and so real challenge to provide nutritional requirement to local population with strong taste support is mandatory.

In Pakistan, Gluten allergy is comparatively less than other regions, as Wheat and other cereals are part of regular meal since childhood, thus a proper meal support base on cereals base was developed containing multi grains and other Nutritional ingredients and a base mix was developed through extrusion technology. The base mix developed was able to provide a multipurpose food output as per various age group demands. The same base mix was providing a variety of Halwa, Kheer, Haleem, Porridge, and baby meal through addition of support house hold ingredients.

This was very much appreciated in the selected group as the meal variety make it more attractive for the masses and it was easily distributable with convenient manufacturing. Thus a strategic action of targeted addressing the nutrition challenge in the developing world was assessed.

Abstract:

In the Philippines, although nutrition mobile applications from other countries are made available, almost none of which was exactly intended for the Filipino population. The study focused on the use of a nutrition mobile application that was developed using Filipino standards and nutritional requirements.

A quasi-experimental study was administered to a total of 50 participants recruited through purposive sampling. Participants of the study were asked to use the mobile application developed for this study for 28 days. Pre and post study measures were taken to assess the use of mobile application in weight management among the chosen age group. Aside from anthropometric measurements such as height, weight and waist circumference, the study measured physical activity, nutrition knowledge, acceptability towards the use of mobile application, and compliance of the participants to the study intervention. 

Result of the study shows that there was insignificant weight change of -0.9kg and waist circumference reduction of -2.85cm. Most of the participants remained overweight/obese from baseline to end-line. Also, participants of the study agreed the mobile application generally acceptable, although most of the participants were found to be low compliant to the protocol.

Abstract:

High levels of total cholesterol (TC) are among the top significant contributing factor for CVD. The public’s awareness of cholesterol at the community level is critical in potential prevention and preparedness. The aim of this paper was to assess the level of knowledge, attitude and practices (KAP) of adults on cholesterol management to determine their risk to CVD. The study targeted populations with eligibility criteria which included those who were employed adults with age ranging from 20 to 55 years old and those who were not yet been diagnosed with hypercholesterolemia and other severe chronic diseases. The participants were categorized into 2 categories based on their usual mobility during work hours: (a) sedentary and (b) active. KAP scores were predefined as high, moderate, low and very low risk. Majority (N=263) of the population got good knowledge (85.2%), attitude (76.0%) and practice (71.9%) scores. The assessment showed that female had higher overall KAP scores. High education and high earnings also contributed to lower risk to CVD. Respondents who were active at work were better in attitude assessment. There were significant differences between the knowledge score and attitude level (p-value: 0.0444) and between the attitude and practice level (p-value: 0.0208) of the respondents. The results of this study showed the level of KAP among employed adults to be relatively high. Despite the gaps in KAP measurement, respondents showed interest in cholesterol lowering interventions. Further studies are therefore necessary to fill with a more concrete resolution.

I am mainly considering miRNA role in prevention of colon cancer through Wnt-B catenin signaling pathway. I am fully confident about my expertise and mentor’s leadership to carry out my proposed work and will give significant contribution in the field of public health.

 

Abstract:

Fasting is an emerging dietary regime which is adept for millennia and beneficial against the disease through energy metabolisms alteration and optimization. Recent researches illuminate its characteristic role against divergent diseases. It obviates disease through energy metabolisms optimization and oxidative stress reduction. This review will be helpful to enlighten the benefit of fasting as a promising dietary approach for a health professional to avert the disease. Fasting improves glucose and lipid regulatory and inflammatory marker. It also makes cancer cell susceptible and improves chemotherapy side-effects, which supports holistic prosperity.  It controls neurological disease via regulation of neurotrophic factors as well as can be used as a pooled approach to shrink the mortality burden. It also acts as health promoter via regulation of circadian clock and gut microbiota. Fasting protects against cancer, metabolic syndrome, and neurological disorder. It can be efficacious as a health proponent via means of regulating circadian rhythm and modulation of gut microbiota. Clearly, Dietary regime transition from restricting specific food type towards restrict intake for a specific time is required. Propitiously, new dietary regimes are progressively taking sustainability into consideration and the outlines of a dietary evolution are slowly rising. In the future, more research is warranted to reveal its molecular mechanisms.

Abstract:

The main objective of the study is to develop a “DINI Axis”(Diet-Infection-NutrientsImmunity Axis), hypothesis in NCDs like Diabetes, Stroke, and certain types of cancers. DINI Axis links diet to NCDs thus opens an avenue where only alteration in diet could help to curb the emergence of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) like Diabetes, Stroke, some kinds of Cancers, etc. The pathogens we are exposed every day that are ingested by an individual from the food we eat or the environment daily. They do not necessarily cause diseases however it does cause changes in the body. It affects the infection status whenever a foreign particle enters the body. That’s how diet and infections are related. Even though the infections are setting up, these pathogens can remain asymptomatic maybe due to the quantity in which they are ingested or in their level of pathogenicity, they have an impact on the body. There is always a mild infection that is related to diet. This alter in the infection status also alters the body’s nutrient, specially the micronutrient status. That is why there is always either a depletion or changes in the nutritional status because of the low-profile infections which is acquired by the diet. At any stage the body is having an infection stage, there are changes in the nutrients which hence affects the immunity system of the body. This axis happening 24/7 in the body is prompting us to non-communicable diseases (NCDs) like Diabetes, Stroke, some kinds of Cancers, etc.

Abstract:

Black radish widely used for foods and cosmetical raw material and it is also found to show stronger anti-tumor effects after chelating with Cu2+ to form Black radish extracts(BRE)-Cu complex. In this work, we studied the anti-tumor activity of BRE-Cu in MDA-MB231cells, RAW264.7 cells by MTT assay, western blot and flow cytometry. The results showed that BRE-Cu could induce the ROS generation of RAW264.7 cells and apoptosis in a concentration-dependent manner. BRE/Cu-induced cytotoxicity was closely associated with activation of the stress-related ROS-JNK-Bax pathway as well as simultaneous inactivation of the pro-survival Nrf2 and nuclear factor-κB pathways. BRE/Cu induced phosphorylation of JNK and ERK inhibits p65 expression in vitro. This result indicated that ROS generation might be one of core steps in BRE/Cu induced apoptosis. Moreover, ROS-related activation of JNK-ERK-Bax pathway , inhibition of NF-κB and Nrf2 may also contribute to the BRE/Cu induced apoptosis. BRE impaired the tumorigenicity of inflammatory cells through activation of ROS-JNK-ERK-Bax pathway and. BRE might be a promising therapeutic agent for the eradication of tumor-initiating inflammatory cells

Abstract:

Intake of polyphenols, probiotics, and multivitamins have shown beneficial effects on spatial memory, learning, and cognition. However, the effect of various combination of these nutrients as dietary intake on spatial memory and cognitive performance has remained unexamined. This project examined the best combination of nutrients that enhances memory and cognitive performance. 32 Acheta domesticus [L.] (house-crickets) were divided into one control and seven groups based on the seven possible combinations of polyphenols, probiotics, and multivitamins. Throughout 7 weeks, crickets were fed their respective nutrients, and an Alternation Test and Recognition Memory Test were conducted every week using a Y-maze in order to test spatial working memory. According to a Repeated Measures Two Way ANOVA test, nutrients has a significant effect on performance over time in both tests (p<0.0001). In the Recognition Memory Test, there is an extremely significant difference between the improvement of the control group and the groups fed probiotics and multivitamins (VitPro) (p<0.0001), and probiotics, polyphenols, and vitamins (ProPolVit) (p<0.0001). However, there is no significant difference between the improvement of the groups VitPro and ProPolVit (p=0.9988). Similarly, in the Alternation Test, there is a significant difference between the improvement of the control group and the group ProPolVit (p=0.0255), and there is no significant difference between the improvement of the groups VitPro and ProPolvit (p=0.9997). All of the nutrients demonstrated advantage over the normal diet, but the most significant improvement as compared to the control was found in groups VitPro and ProPolVit. Since this study found no significant difference between the performance and improvement of subjects within these two groups (VitPro and ProPolVit), the combination of probiotics and multivitamins is the most effective and efficient option for improving memory and cognitive performance. This outcome could be applied to humans as well, especially in childhood education, since quality of nutrition can have a significant effect on memory and learning. Especially with our current disparity, which leads to food deserts and differing access to quality food, this may reveal changes to be made in mass nutrition to support cognitive performance and learning.
