And Now for some news ….
Chiropractic and Sleep
A study was published in the Journal of Orthopedic and Sports Physical Therapy to determine the effect of cervical or thoracic manipulation on neurotensin, oxytocin, orexin A, and cortisol levels.
Previous studies have researched the effect of spinal manipulation on pain modulation and/or range of movement. However, there is little knowledge of the biochemical process that supports the antinociceptive effect of spinal manipulation.
Thirty asymptomatic subjects were randomly divided into 3 groups: cervical manipulation, thoracic manipulation, and non-manipulation (control).
The study concluded that the mechanical stimulus provided by spinal manipulation triggers an increase in neurotensin, oxytocin, and cortisol blood levels.
Data suggest that the initial capability of the tissues to tolerate mechanical deformation affects the capacity of these tissues to produce an induction of neuropeptide expression.

Sugar and Cancer
Epidemiological studies have shown that dietary sugar intake has a significant impact on the development of breast cancer. One proposed mechanism for how sugar impacts cancer development involves inflammation.
In a current study, published in the journal Cancer Research, the Authors investigated the impact of dietary sugar on mammary gland tumor development in multiple mouse models, along with mechanisms that may be involved.
The authors found that sucrose intake in mice comparable with levels of Western diets led to increased tumor growth and metastasis, when compared with a non-sugar starch diet.
The authors determined that fructose derived from the sucrose was responsible for facilitating lung metastasis and 12-HETE production in breast tumors.
Overall, the Author’s data suggested that dietary sugar induces 12-LOX signaling to increase risks of breast cancer development and metastasis.
As always, discuss all Nutritional recommendations with your Qualified Healthcare Provider.
