Montana for the Win Phil Mickelson pulled off one of the greatest comebacks in sports history, and he has Montana to thank. In June the veteran golfer suffered the most humiliating defeat of his life when, after five second-place finishes in the U.S. Open, he blew what should have been an easy win with a pair of epic mulligans. He spent the next two days moping in bed, completely inconsolable. But then he went to Yellowstone with family and friends. When he came back, he really came back. In his next major tournament, the British Open, he went into the final round behind by five shots and ended it winning by three. (Yahoo! Sports, 7/21/13) Weight Discrimination Counterproductive People who are overweight already experience a lot of discrimination in the U.S., even from doctors, and it appears to be worsening. While some discrimination may be well-intended, a recent study indicates that it has a negative effect. Researchers at Florida State College of Medicine looked at data from over 6,000 elderly people and found that, over a four-year period, people who reported the most discrimination based on their weight were more likely to become obese or to remain obese than those who reported the least discrimination. Whether or not this finding holds (the statistical significance was not very high), it’s important to keep in mind not only that obesity is often due to factors that are not a matter of choice but also that discrimination may make weight control more difficult than it already is. (NPR.org, Shots, 7/26/13 and plosone. org linked study) BPA-Free Just as Bad? BPA is commonly used in plastics, and it’s known to work like estrogen, potentially contributing to health problems, including cancer, in humans. For that reason, you’ll see many plastic products advertised as being BPAfree. But are the alternatives just as bad? An Austin trial may shed light on that question. On one side is Eastman Chemical, which markets Tritan, a BPAfree plastic resin. On the other is George Bittner, a University of Texas professor and founder of PlastiPure, a company that claims to produce plastics with no estrogenic activity. Bittner also founded a testing company that published a study showing that Eastman’s BPA-free product still had estrogenic activity. (NPR.org, Shots, 7/15/13) To Be or Not to Be Maybe you’d better ask that question over coffee, because according to a Harvard review of three studies that included over 200,000 people, those who drink a few cups of caffeinated coffee a day have about half the risk of suicide. Two to four cups seem to be the best amount. The likely mechanism is that caffeine stimulates the central nervous system and the release of key neurotransmitters, thereby lowering the likelihood of depression. In spite of that, the researchers don’t recommend drinking more coffee to treat depression because people already tend to be consuming the level that’s best for them. It can be a delicate balance. (Harvard Gazette, 7/24/13) Vitamin D and Aging A Dutch study has found that older people with normal levels of vitamin D (more than 30 nanograms per mL) are more likely to be able to perform some basic tasks of daily life, such as dressing, walking up stairs and using personal or public transportation. As is often the case, the study indicates a link but is not sufficient to conclude a causal relationship. (NYTimes.com, 7/19/13)

Laughing Water, General Manager The just-released Life in Motion calendar honors members of our community who stay active and fit past a certain age—although, as it demonstrates, “certain” and “age” may not belong in the same phrase. It also raises funds for the Helena YWCA, which offers life-changing services for local women. So the calendar benefits our community in multiple ways, and we’re pleased to be a sponsor. I was particularly touched to see Sue Bennett on the cover of the calendar. Sue has been one of our customers since the 1970s, she worked for us for a time, and she is one of the most ageless people I know. I’ve been less aware of her life in motion on a bicycle than her life in stillness as a meditation instructor. As a yogi (and Mr. January, by the way) I appreciate the relationship between motion and stillness. Many things appear to be separate and opposing—actions and objects, doing and being, waves and particles, journey and destination, friends and adversaries, work and play—but they can also be two sides of the same coin. For example, often the best way to rest is to first exert yourself, and vice versa. When it comes to living a healthy life, synergy is the rule rather than the exception. Nutrients work together; without one you have nothing. Even

“I seem to be a verb,” said a man of great re-noun.

a perfect diet falls short if you lack rest, peace of mind, social support and a sense of purpose and meaning in your life. Much like game-winning shots in basketball, magic bullets in the pursuit of health are illusions that only appear when everything else is

in place. There’s a lot written about whether diet or exercise matters more in weight loss. If you have to choose between the two, it looks like diet wins. But you’ll get much better results by choosing both. You’ll get even better results if you look as well beyond both diet and exercise to the other dimensions of your life. Meanwhile, I hope you’ll buy copies of Life in Motion for yourself and your loved ones. You can get them here. They’re an inspiration, and all the proceeds go to the YWCA.

Flathead Cherries
Don’t miss them!
by Ed Tyanich, Produce Manager

With August comes one of the most anticipated events of the year: Flathead cherries. They’re usually the Lambert and Lapin varieties. Ours come from Ramrock Orchard and are certified organic by the Montana Department of Agriculture. That means you can avoid the toxic residues found in conventional cherries, which are on the Environmental Working Group’s Dirty Dozen List of the most contaminated fresh produce crops in the country. In fact, the USDA found that conventional cherries contain residues of 42 different pesticides, including 7 that are possible carcinogens, 22 suspected hormone disruptors, 7 neurotoxins, 8 developmental or reproductive toxins and 18 honeybee toxins. By contrast organic cherry growers use a variety of natural substances such as neem oil, pyrethrin, which is derived from the chrysanthemum, or cedar-based products such as CedarCide. All of these are considered nontoxic or minimally toxic. In addition to tasting great, cherries have some

powerful health benefits. The anthocyanins and bioflavonoids in cherries are believed to be helpful to people with arthritis and gout. They also contain several compounds such as ellagic acid, quercetin and POH that research has shown to have potential roles in protecting against cancer. Cherries are potentially beneficial in preventing migraines, helping to prevent premature aging and helping you to sleep. Flathead cherries are delicious eaten out of hand, topping your favorite ice cream or in a recipe. Cherries Jubilee, cherry cobbler and cherry pie are a few

Cherry-topped Pork Chops
Brown the chops in olive oil along with sliced shallots or red onion. Remove the chops after they are browned. Add about a cup of pitted and chopped cherries and a cup of broth or other favorite liquid and a few sprigs of fresh thyme. Return the chops to the pan and turn several times to coat with the cherry mixture. Remove the chops and cook the cherries, shallots and liquid until thickened, adding a tablespoon or two of balsamic vinegar to deglaze the pan at the very end. To serve, spoon the cherry mixture over the pork and enjoy.

of the more traditional ways to prepare them. Some ideas you may not have thought of are as an addition to a chicken salad, added to your favorite barbecue sauce or one of my favorites, Cherry-topped Pork Chops. Flathead Cherry season comes but once a year. So don’t miss it! You can get them here at the Real Food Market & Deli, Helena’s leading source of organic and local produce.

Ask the Doctor: Do omega-3 oils cause prostate cancer?
by Dr. Jeff Roush, ND

Americans have dramatically increased their consumption of fish oil supplements in the last decade. That’s in response to a large body of evidence that omega-3 oils are connected to improved cognitive function, reduced pain from arthritis, and reduced fat buildup in arteries, which would be a factor in heart attacks and stroke. In fact I commonly recommend to all my patients that they consume a daily dose of omega-3 fatty acids. It has become almost a given that everyone would benefit from these wonderful fatty acids—until now. Recently the SELECT study, published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, found that men with the highest level of EPA and DHA, the two primary omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil, were significantly more likely to develop both slow-growing and aggressive forms of prostate cancer. This study reportedly confirmed past reports of the same findings. According to the statistical analysis, the increased risk is 44 to 71 percent! But a different story is suggested by

Dr. Barry Sears, an acclaimed physician with decades of experience in fatty acid research. He argues that science has established for a long time that inflammation causes cancer and that the best indicator for inflammation is the ratio of omega-3 fatty acids to arachidonic acid, which is highly inflammatory. As he points out, Japanese men have the highest blood levels of omega-3 fatty acids in the world, far surpassing the levels of the men in this study; yet remarkably they have 10 times less cancer than is found in the U.S. Other studies support this notion. A 2004 study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition concluded that prostate cancer was reduced in groups consuming larger amounts of omega-3 fatty acids compared to men consuming the omega-6 fatty acids more commonly found in vegetable oils. This rebuttal is somewhat confused by a 2006 Cochrane review of multiple studies which showed some discrepancy. In this review all but one study showed a beneficial or neutral connection with prostate cancer, and one showed a possible increase.

What are we to make of all this statistical uncertainty? I think Dr. Sears says it best: “The numbers in the SELECT trial might be statistically significant, but the differences are not clinically relevant.” In other words, while more research is necessary, the benefit of consuming omega-3 fatty acids in either fish oil supplements or through dietary consumption of clean cold-water fish appears to be far-reaching, including its effects in reducing inflammation, a phenomenon that appears to be driving so many of the chronic diseases as we know them, including cancer. Considering all that we now know about omega-3 fatty acids, I’ll continue to recommend them to my patients.
Dr. Jeff Roush is a licensed naturopathic physician practicing at Natural Medicine Plus in Helena (www.naturalmedicineplus.com). He is available for general questions at the Real Food Market from 3-6 pm on Wednesdays.
