Welcome to iHealthTube and a look at what’s making news in natural health this week…
Do you get enough vitamin D and how might it affect your mental health?
A new study in Europe found a significant association between the two… scientists tested vitamin D levels in over 200 patients who were also being treated for psychotic disorders… and another 159 patients who were well… the study found a significant connection between low vitamin D levels and higher levels of negative symptoms and of depression among the people with psychosis.

Do you drink soda? A recent study in Sweden indicated people who drink at least two (200 milliliter) sodas… either containing sugar or artificial sweeteners, were twice as likely to develop type 2 diabetes as well as form of type 1 diabetes known as latent autoimmune diabetes of adults.
The study also found adults who consumed 5 - 200 milliliter servings of soft drinks had a 10 times greater risk of type 2 diabetes.
And outside of cutting soda… one way to help improve your chances of not getting type two diabetes might be calorie restriction.
A study out of North Carolina compared a group of adults who were assigned a progressive resistance training program, with a group that practice the same program plus calorie restriction. The resistance training alone did not amount to any weight loss, while the calorie restriction group lost an average of 6 percent body weight and reduced fat around the abdomen.
