Hi folks, just wanted to reach out to colleagues a bit during this deeply
unsettling political environment of fake news (and fake foods) that we find
ourselves in. After visiting a school yesterday, I saw how our nutrition
education work is more important now than ever. In addition to what we can
all do on the political sphere, I was re-inspired when I saw how
collectively, our nutrition education lessons could help each and every
child become a more empowered, educated, and welcoming human being. With
simple lessons about food and nutrition, we can offer schools a
non-threatening way to address many of the urgent issues we're
facing...such as helping kids:
- critically evaluate media messages, advertisements, and peer group
pressures in order to take charge of growing up healthy, happy, active, and
-make food choices that are good for their health and good for the health
of the planet.
-combat bullying and understand that every body is different and different
is a great thing. And, just like we need a wide variety of foods and a
rainbow of colors to build a healthy body, we need to welcome everyone to
the table to build a healthy world.
-stand up for real foods and real news - discover the difference between
"real" fresh food and highly processed and packaged "fake" food products
-feed their bodies healthy foods, and their minds - healthy messages!
OK, just some thoughts to share, gives me a little hope - thanks for

A circadian rhythm researcher here at Rush saw the ad for HealthWatch 360 Research. It is a mobile app that you can record food intake for one thing and other symptoms of disease, physical activity and get feedback also. It looks like it uses the USDA nutrient data base and has quite a few foods in the data base. There is a separate research portal and it looks like that portal would be the place subjects would go to and you could download data. The USDA web page has that it is a free health monitor. It looks like the mobile app can also provide feedback about dietary intake using the DGA. The company also provides personal nutrition guidance based on genetics.
If anyone knows of a published research study using it or has experience with it, please contact me. I am going to do a research article search but just have not done it yet. Thanks for any assistance on this. ksk

Suggestions will be discussed on how other health professionals and nutrition educators can pitch in to reduce global food insecurity. Webinar sponsored by the SNEB Division of International Nutrition and the Advisory Committee on Public Policy.
1. Describe current U.S. efforts in international food systems work and the plans to reduce poverty/hunger and improve nutrition in needed countries
2. Compare and contrast the current U.S. efforts and United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals to reduce global food security
3. Discuss international perspectives of global nutrition issues from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
4. Identify ways that nutrition educators can work with international entities to promote global food security

> Childhood obesity quadruples risk of developing type 2 diabetes
> Large-scale UK study examines link between body mass index, metabolic
> The Endocrine Society
> WASHINGTON--Children with obesity face four times the risk of developing
> type 2 diabetes compared to children with a body mass index (BMI) in the
> normal range, according to a study published in the *Journal of the
> Endocrine Society*.
> Both obesity and diabetes are epidemic health problems. Obesity affects
> about 12.7 million children and teens in the United States. The SEARCH for
> Diabetes in Youth study found 3,600 cases of type 2 diabetes were diagnosed
> in U.S. children and teens each year between 2002 and 2005, according to
> the Endocrine Society's Endocrine Facts and Figures report
> The researchers who published the *Journal of the Endocrine Society*
> study found a similar trend in a large-scale analysis of diabetes and
> obesity rates among British children.
> "As the prevalence of obesity and being overweight has rapidly risen, an
> increasing number of children and young adults have been diagnosed with
> diabetes in the United Kingdom since the early 1990s," said the one of the
> study's authors, Ali Abbasi, M.D., Ph.D., of King's College London in
> London, U.K. "A child with obesity faces a four-fold greater risk of being
> diagnosed with diabetes by age 25 than a counterpart who is normal weight."
> The cohort study used electronic health records from one of the largest
> primary care databases worldwide, the U.K. Clinical Practice Research
> Datalink, to pull data from 375 general practices. The researchers examined
> BMI measurements, diabetes diagnosis records, and other data for 369,362
> children between the ages of 2 and 15.
> Examining data recorded between 1994 and 2013, the researchers found 654
> children and teenagers were diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and 1,318 were
> diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Children and teenagers with obesity
> constituted nearly half of the type 2 diabetes cases--308 in all.
> The study found no association between obesity and increased incidence of
> type 1 diabetes, which is linked to an underlying autoimmune disorder.
> "Diabetes imposes a heavy burden on society because the condition is
> common and costly to treat," Abbasi said. "Estimates indicate one in 11
> adults has type 2 diabetes, or about 415 million people worldwide. Given
> that diabetes and obesity are preventable from early life, our findings and
> other research will hopefully motivate the public and policymakers to
> invest and engage in diabetes prevention efforts."
> Other authors of the study include: Dorota Juszczyk and Martin C.
> Gulliford of King's College London; and Cornelia HM van Jaarsveld of
> Radboud University Medical Center in Nijmegen, the Netherlands.
> Gulliford was supported by the NIHR Biomedical Research Centre at Guy's
> and St. Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust and King's College London.
> The study, "Body Mass Index and Incident Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes in
> Children and Young Adults: A Retrospective Cohort Study," will be published

> The Endocrine Society launched the first issue of its Open Access
