CHOLINE, EGGS IN PREGNANCY HELP BREAST HEALTH IN OFFSPRING

Eggs, Pregnancy and Breast Health

I'm always surprised at how much a pregnant woman can determine the health of her baby for years to come. Choline, which is found in eggs, may be one way to help your yet to be born child avoid breast cancer.

See www.getpregnantover40.com for more articles on pregnancy, diet, and fertility 

 This interesting article talks about choline and how it may help. Read more:

This finding by a team of biologists at Boston University is the first to link choline consumption during pregnancy to breast cancer. It also is the first to identify possible choline-related genetic changes that affect breast cancer survival rates.

"We've known for a long time that some agents taken by pregnant women, such as diethylstibesterol, 

have adverse consequences for their daughters," said Gerald Weissmann, M.D., Editor-in-Chief of

The FASEB Journal. "But there's an upside. The emerging science of epigenetics has yielded a breakthrough. For the first time, we've learned that we might be able to prevent breast cancer as early as a mother's pregnancy."

The researchers made the discovery in rats by studying females whose mothers were fed varying amounts of choline during pregnancy. Different groups of pregnant rats received diets containing standard amounts of choline, no choline at all, or extra choline. Then the researchers treated the female offspring with a chemical that causes cancer of the mammary gland (breast cancer). Although animals in all groups developed mammary cancer, the daughters of mothers that had received extra choline during pregnancy had slow growing tumors while daughters of mothers that had no choline during pregnancy had fast growing tumors.

FIGS, GREAT FOR PREGNANCY

Pregnancy Over 40, Figs In Your Diet

See my entire series on foods for fertility and pregnancy at: www.getpregnantover40.com 

Figs seem to be a forgotten fruit - I had overlooked them until one of my blog readers sent me a link to this article about why people should eat figs when they're pregnant. Read more:

1. Figs have a higher overall mineral profile than any other common fruit or vegetable. They are particularly high in calcium, iron, potassium, and zinc, key nutrients for a healthy pregnancy.

2. The high potassium content of figs may help to control blood pressure and therefore, the

hypertension associated with preeclampsia, a dangerous pregnancy condition.

3. The mineral content of figs closely resembles that of human breast milk!

4. Figs have the highest fiber content of any common fruit. Rich in both insoluble and soluble fiber, figs really help to mitigate the constipation so common during pregnancy.

5. Figs contain a proteolytic enzyme that also aids in digestion, which is naturally slowed during pregnancy.

6. Figs are highly alkaline, and therefore alkalizing, which has been shown to help curb cravings. This may help control those less-than-healthy urges that can sabotage a healthy pregnancy diet.

7. Figs are high in vitamin B6, which has long been thought to be beneficial in alleviating morning sickness.

8. Even the leaves of figs are therapeutic: ingesting them has been shown to reduce and even eliminate the need for insulin in diabetic patients. Therefore, ingesting them may help to control or avoid a case of gestational diabetes. Furthermore, this ability to balance blood sugar levels should help to relieve a whole host of symptoms – from morning sickness to mood swings.

9. Dried figs contain significant amounts of Omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential to the optimal development of the fetus. Consuming ample Omega-3’s during pregnancy is also associated with a lower incidence of pre-term labor and premature delivery.

10. Psoralens, a chemical found in figs, has been used to treat many skin pigmentation problems and may be beneficial in preventing melasma, the “mask of pregnancy”.

SOY BENEFICIAL FOR BELLY FAT REDUCTION

Pregnancy Over 40, Soy and Belly Fat

There seems to be differing opinions on whether or not soy is harmful or helpful to women. Some sources priase soy for it's health benefits, others claim it's harmful both before and after menopause.

Personally, I've been drinking soy milk for at least 10 years. Here is an article about how soy can help post menopausal women avoid that dreaded belly fat:


From the article:

A daily serving of soy may help postmenopausal women avoid gaining fat around the middle,

preliminary research suggests.

In a study of 18 postmenopausal women, researchers found that those who drank a soy-based shake every day for three months tended to gain less abdominal fat than those who had a milk-based shake.

Soy contains compounds called isoflavones that are structurally similar to estrogen and bind to estrogen receptors in fat tissue. So in theory, soy isoflavones could help regulate body fat metabolism.

The new findings appear to be the first to show that soy protein may affect abdominal fat distribution, according to the researchers, led by Dr. Cynthia K. Sites of the University of Alabama at Birmingham. They report the results in the medical journal Fertility and Sterility

PREGNANCY OVER 40, MANY BENEFITS OF OLDER MOTHERHOOD!

Pregnancy Over 40, It's Okay!!

We hear so much negative information about pregnancy over 40 and even parenthood over 40, that it's important to look at the other side of argument.
Most women I've talked to who had children later in life, can't say enough about what a blessing it is and how they enjoyed every minute of raising their child/children. Most women in their 40's have "gotten their act together" and don't get bogged down in the day to day drama. Here is article that discusses the advantages of having children as an older mother.
One exceptionally helpful aspect of the article is that the author, Jan Anderson, interviewed grown children of older parents. There seems to be consistently good feedback. If your over 40 and TTC, pregnant, or already a parent - your outlook looks good. But be sure to live a healthy lifestyle - you'll want to be around to see your grandkids!

Gavin, 26, says that he never once thought of his mother as being any different to the younger mothers of his classmates, particularly since his father was also much younger. Gavin was conceived when his mother, now aged 70, embarked on a second marriage with a man 14 years her junior. At the time of Gavin's birth, his mother was 44 and his father was just 30. Despite disapproval from other family members and jibes that the relationship would never last, his parents are still happily married.
Gavin jokes, "I used to get a kick out of telling people that my mum was 14 years older than my dad and I'm sure that some mates wanted to come round to my house just to gawp. Funny thing is that a couple of them actually had a crush on my mum and I must admit, she did look pretty good for her age - and still does! Despite the chronological age gap, biologically there are no discernible differences between my parents.
