Eat oysters to avoid zinc deficiency which can reduce the body’s power to fight inflammation.

Scientists now believe lack of sufficient levels of zinc may play a role in chronic diseases like heart disease, cancer and diabetes.

“When you take away zinc, the cells that control inflammation appear to activate and respond differently; this causes the cells to promote more inflammation,” said Emily Ho, a professor and director of the Moore Family Center for Whole Grain Foods, Nutrition and Preventive Health.

Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium and maintain bone and muscle health.

The skin produces the vitamin naturally after exposure to sunlight.

People also absorb small amounts through foods like fortified milk.

The study was carried out by Harvard School of Public Health.

body clockNight shift workers might are being advised to avoid foods high in iron which may disrupt the working of their livers.

Those on night shifts have higher rates of type 2 diabetes, obesity and cancer because of the disruptions to their body’s circadian clock.

The circadian clock in the brain, regulates sleep and eating but other body tissues also have circadian clocks.
