Nutrients in the news this week...

Dark chocolate beats fatigue, study...
12/20/2006 - Further evidence of the health benefits of chocolate has come to light in a new study – giving manufacturers yet another route into the functional food niche.

Vitamin D may fight multiple sclerosis ...
CHICAGO - An abundance of vitamin D seems to help prevent multiple sclerosis, according to a study in more than 7 million people that offers some of the strongest evidence yet of the power of the "sunshine vitamin" against MS.

Weight may be linked to type of bacteria ...
WASHINGTON - The size of your gut may be partly shaped by which microbes call it home, according to new research linking obesity to types of digestive bacteria.

Comment: I do believe there is a connection with Vitamin D and MS. As for the bacteria in your gut effecting weight, this is the first study I have seen on it, but most people could use help with intestinal health because of the over use of anitbiotics. It's worth a shot.
