Identification of current food sources of energy and nutrients among US adults is needed to help with public health efforts to implement feasible and appropriate dietary recommendations. To determine the food sources of energy and 26 nutrients consumed by US adults the 2003-2006 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) 24-h recall (Day 1)(More)
BACKGROUND Recent detailed analyses of data on dietary sources of energy and nutrients in US children are lacking. The objective of this study was to identify food sources of energy and 28 nutrients for children in the United States. METHODS Analyses of food sources were conducted using a single 24-h recall collected from children 2 to 18 years old (n =(More)
BACKGROUND Consumption of 100% orange juice (OJ) has been positively associated with nutrient adequacy and diet quality, with no increased risk of overweight/obesity in children; however, no one has examined these factors in adults. The purpose of this study was to examine the association of 100% OJ consumption with nutrient adequacy, diet quality, and risk(More)
On the hypothesis that schizophrenia is an immunological disorder in which antibody is produced against a unique antigen sequestered principally or exclusively in the septal region of the brain, we used crossed-immunoelectrophoresis (CIE) to evaluate reactivity of a gamma G immunoglobulin (IgG) fraction from serum of schizophrenic patients and(More)
BACKGROUND One hundred percent fruit juice (100% FJ) has been viewed by some as a sweetened beverage with concerns about its effect on weight. Little regard has been given to the contribution of 100% FJ to diet quality. METHODS In this study data from the 2003-2006 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey were used to examine the association of(More)
The objective of this study was to determine the correlation between intake of snacks, sweets, fruit, vegetables, and energy in low-income mother-child dyads.

This is the third in a series of papers in which we study the n-Selmer group of an elliptic curve, with the aim of representing its elements as curves of degree n in P n−1. The methods we describe are practical in the case n = 3 for elliptic curves over the rationals, and have been implemented in MAGMA. One important ingredient of our work is an algorithm(More)
BACKGROUND Most children do not meet the recommendation for fruit consumption. Apples are the second most commonly consumed fruit in the US; however, no studies have examined the association of total apple products, apples, apple sauce, and 100 % apple juice consumption on diet quality and weight/adiposity in children. METHODS The purpose of this study(More)
