C Boulos et al, 2019. Nutritional Risk Factors, Microbiota and Parkinson’s Disease: What Is the Current Evidence, Nutrients, Volume 11 (8).

ABSTRACT Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a frequent neurodegenerative disease among elderly people. Genetic and underlying environmental factors seem to be involved in the pathogenesis of PD related to degeneration of dopaminergic neurons in the striatum. In previous experimental researches oxidative stress, mitochondrial dysfunction, homocysteine, and neuroinflammation have been reported as potential mechanisms. Among environmental factors, […]

M A Karalexi et al, 2019. Coffee and Tea Consumption during Pregnancy and Risk of Childhood Acute Myeloid Leukemia: A Childhood Leukemia International Consortium (CLIC) Study, Cancer Epidemiology, published online.

ABSTRACT BACKGROUND: Dietary habits during pregnancy have been inconsistently linked to childhood acute myeloid leukemia (AML), given the putative intrauterine onset of the disease as a result of triggering events during the critical period of fetal hematopoiesis. We investigated the potential association of maternal coffee and tea consumption during pregnancy with childhood AML risk, pooling primary data […]

E Mostofsky et al, 2019. Prospective Cohort Study of Caffeinated Beverage Intake as a Potential Trigger of Headaches among Migraineurs, The American Journal of Medicine, published online.

ABSTRACT OBJECTIVE: We aimed to evaluate the role of caffeinated beverage intake as a potential trigger of migraine headaches on that day or on the following day. METHODS: In this prospective cohort study, 101 adults with episodic migraine completed electronic diaries every morning and evening. Ninety-eight participants completed at least 6 weeks of diaries in […]

V Bodar et al, 2019. Coffee Consumption and Risk of Atrial Fibrillation in the Physicians’ Health Study, Journal of the American Heart Association, published online.

ABSTRACT Background: Although coffee consumption is often reported as a trigger for atrial fibrillation (AF) among patients with paroxysmal AF, prospective studies on the relation of coffee consumption with AF risk have been inconsistent. Hence, we sought to assess the association between coffee consumption and risk of AF in men. Methods and Results: We prospectively […]

C M Spadola et al, 2019. Evening Intake of Alcohol, Caffeine, and Nicotine: Night-to-Night Associations with Sleep Duration and Continuity among African Americans in the Jackson Heart Sleep Study, Sleep, published online.

ABSTRACT STUDY OBJECTIVES: We examined the night-to-night associations of evening use of alcohol, caffeine, and nicotine with actigraphically estimated sleep duration, sleep efficiency, and wake after sleep onset (WASO) among a large cohort of African American adults. METHODS: Participants in the Jackson Heart Sleep Study underwent wrist actigraphy for an average of 6.7 nights and […]
