      Breastmilk covers all the nutritional needs of the infant the first months of life, with the exception of vitamin D. In addition, breastmilk has a number of protective properties. However, as humans are exposed to polluting chemicals through food, air, water and skin contact, breastmilk also contains contaminants. Taking the present-day levels of contaminants in Norwegian breastmilk and the long ...

      At the request of the Norwegian Food Safety Authority, the Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food Safety (VKM) has conducted an assessment of the nutritional benefits of consuming fish and other seafood, compared with the health risks associated with the intake of contaminants and other undesirable compounds that fish and other seafood may contain.
    • Plasma Fatty Acid Ratios Affect Blood Gene Expression Profiles - A Cross-Sectional Study of the Norwegian Women and Cancer Post-Genome Cohort 

      Olsen, Karina Standahl; Fenton, Christopher Graham; Frøyland, Livar; Waaseth, Marit; Paulssen, Ruth H; Lund, Eiliv (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2013)
      High blood concentrations of n-6 fatty acids (FAs) relative to n-3 FAs may lead to a “physiological switch” towards permanent low-grade inflammation, potentially influencing the onset of cardiovascular and inflammatory diseases, as well as cancer. To explore the potential effects of FA ratios prior to disease onset, we measured blood gene expression profiles and plasma FA ratios (linoleic ...
