Healthy Mouth Healthy Body
Monograph 1/1/2009
This monograph discusses what we know about the connection between oral and system health.
Hydration and Health Promotion
Journal Article 1/1/2009

As described in this Nutrition Today article (2009;44:190–201), while the relation between hydration status and physical activity (military operations, sports performance) has been an area of extensive research, more recently, researchers have begun examining the relation between hydration status and health, acute and chronic diseases, and cognitive performance.

Hydration and Human Health: Critical Issues Update
Journal Article 1/1/2009
UPDATED POSTING: The symposium on which this article is based dealt with the current knowledge on hydration. This work is published in Nutrition Today (2009;44:6).
Sensitivity to Change in Cognitive Performance and Mood Measures of Energy and Fatigue in Response to Morning Caffeine Alone or in Combination with Carbohydrate
Journal Article 1/1/2009
This double-blind, placebo-controlled, within-subjects (N=17) experiment compared the sensitivity to change of the cognitive performance and mood measures of mental energy following consumption of either a moderate does of caffeine (200 mg), a small amount of carbohydrate (50 g white bread), or both. The findings are published in the International Journal of Neuroscience (2009;119:1239–1258).
Refining the Threshold of Toxicological Concern (TTC) for Risk Prioritization of Trace Chemicals in Food
Journal Article 1/1/2009
This paper, published in Food and Chemical Toxicology (2009;47:2236–2245), builds on the existing TTC literature and recommends refinements that address two key areas: the inclusion of genotoxicity and duration of exposure.
Functional Foods for Health Promotion: Microbes and Health
Journal Article 1/1/2009
This set of expanded abstracts, published in Nutrition Reviews (2009;67:40–48), includes a general introduction and overview of how diet or dietary components can influence microbial growth and, ultimately, disease risk and overall health.
Towards Establishing Dietary Reference Intakes for Eicosapentaenoic (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic Acids (DHA)
Journal Article 1/1/2009
This paper, published in the Journal of Nutrition (2009;139:804S–819S), summarizes a workshop sponsored by the Dietary Lipids Committee that presented the current scientific understanding of the impact of dietary EPA and DHA on cardiovascular, neurocognitive, and cancer outcomes.
The State of the Science on Dietary Sweeteners Containing Fructose: Summary and Issues to Be Resolved
Journal Article 1/1/2009
UPDATED: This article, published in the Journal of Nutrition (2009;139:1269S–1270S), highlights the discussion of the issues that were raised during a workshop sponsored by the North American branch of the International Life Sciences Institute  and the USDA Agricultural Research Service surrounding the consumption of fructose.
Early Risk Determinants and Later Health Outcomes
Journal Article 1/1/2009
UPDATED POSTING: This workshop, discussed in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (2009;89), stemmed from a quest to consolidate current knowledge on the early determinants of maternal and child health outcomes related to obesity, cardiovascular disease risk, and neurodevelopment. The primary goal was to delineate the relative influence of genetics and environmental factors.
Functional Foods for Health Promotion: State-of-the-Science on Dietary Flavonoids
Journal Article 1/1/2009

This article, published in Nutrition Reviews (2009;67:736–743), indicates that dietary flavonoids, particularly flavanols, show promising potential for reducing cardiovascular disease risk via reduction of inflammation and improvement in vascular function.
