Published How pre- and postnatal B-12 vitamins improve breast milk vitamin B-12 levels, which supports infant brain development (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
According to a new study B-12 vitamins increase the presence of the micronutrient in mothers' breast milk, which is especially helpful in countries where it can be difficult to eat what is needed for the body to produce B-12 naturally.
Published Are healthy foods automatically sustainable, too? (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Perceptions about sustainability and healthy food choices are closely linked, a new study shows.
Published Novel molecular mechanisms in the early development of diabetes mellitus (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Researchers conducted a gene expression analysis at the single-cell level on pancreatic islets from prediabetic and diabetic mouse models. Analysis results revealed upregulation of Anxa10 expression in pancreatic beta cells during the early phases of diabetes, attributed to elevated blood glucose levels. This elevated Anxa10 expression was found to influence intracellular calcium homeostasis, leading to a reduction in insulin secretory capacity.
Published Urban environmental exposures drive increased breast cancer incidence (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
An analysis of breast cancer showed that the state’s urban counties had higher overall incidences of disease than rural counties, especially at early stages upon diagnosis.
Published Poor work performance among Japanese employees strongly associated with insufficient sleep (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
This study examined the association between work performance and lifestyle habits among Japanese employees. The results revealed that insufficient sleep was the predominant factor affecting work performance in men and women, followed by lack of regular exercise and eating late-evening meals. Furthermore, the study indicated that men were more likely to exhibit lifestyle habits that impacted work performance than women.
Published Feeding dogs raw meat increases the risk of antibiotic-resistant E. coli (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Feeding dogs raw (uncooked) meat increases their risk of excreting E. coli that cannot be killed by a widely used antibiotic -- ciprofloxacin -- researchers have found from a study of 600 healthy pet dogs.
Published Following a Mediterranean diet reduces the risk of cognitive decline in older people (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Old people who follow a Mediterranean diet are at a lower risk of cognitive decline, according to a new study. The study provides new evidence for a better understanding of the biological mechanisms related to the impact of the diet on cognitive health in the aging population.
Published People with obesity burn less energy during day (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A study found people who have a healthy weight use more energy during the day, when most people are active and eat, while those who have obesity spend more energy during the night, when most people sleep. Researchers also found that, during the day, those with obesity have higher levels of the hormone insulin -- a sign that the body is working harder to use glucose, an energy-packed sugar.
Published Peer educators play key role in new recipe development and testing (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Cooking and recipe demonstrations encourage healthy eating and adoption of unfamiliar foods by class participants.
Published New compound outperforms pain drug by indirectly targeting calcium channels (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A compound -- one of 27 million screened in a library of potential new drugs -- reversed four types of chronic pain in animal studies, according to new research. The small molecule, which binds to an inner region of a calcium channel to indirectly regulate it, outperformed gabapentin without troublesome side effects, providing a promising candidate for treating pain.
Published Side-effect avoiding treatment shows early promise against breast cancer in mice (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
New experimental evidence suggests that substances known as narrow-spectrum Wnt signaling inhibitors -- which could have fewer side effects than other related substances -- are capable of suppressing the growth of breast cancer tumors in mice.
Published Allergic responses to common foods could significantly increase risk of heart disease, cardiovascular death (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Allergic responses to common foods such as dairy and peanuts can increase the risk for heart disease and cardiovascular death as much or more than smoking, new research suggests. And these dangerous allergic responses can strike both people with food allergies and those with no obvious allergy symptoms.
Published Higher risk of breast cancer in women with false positive mammography result (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Women who receive a false positive mammography result are more likely to develop breast cancer over the subsequent 20 years, report researchers. The risk is highest for women aged between 60 and 75 and who have low breast density.
Published Practicing mindfulness can help people make heart-healthy eating choices (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A study found that participants in a mindfulness-based blood pressure reduction program improved health behaviors that lower blood pressure. When people who had elevated blood pressure participated in an eight-week mindfulness-based blood pressure reduction program, they significantly improved their scores on measures of self-awareness and adherence to a heart-healthy diet compared to a control group.
Published COVID vaccination in female, male partners does not increase risk of miscarriage, study finds (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A new study provides deeper insight into the safety of COVID-19 vaccines for people planning to become pregnant. The study found no increased risk of early or late miscarriage as a result of male or female partners getting a COVID-19 vaccine prior to conceiving.
Published Cutting-edge imaging sheds new light on cells that break down bone (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Imaging technology shows that bone-resorbing osteoclasts gather in distinct pockets, leading to new insights for osteoporosis and cancer treatment.
Published Study shows simple diet swaps can cut carbon emissions and improve your health (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Making one small diet change -- chicken instead of beef, plant milk instead of cow's milk -- could significantly curb carbon emissions and increase the healthfulness of your diet, according to a new study.
Published Researchers uncover mechanism that links NAD+ to fertility problems (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A woman's fertility normally decreases by her late 30s with reproductive function eventually ceasing at menopause. It is known that a small molecule called nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) plays a critical role in this decline, and scientists have revealed how this happens and have identified potential new approaches to enhance reproductive longevity.
Published Strength training may reduce health risks of a high-protein diet (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Progressive strength training using resistance can protect against the detrimental effects of a high-protein diet, according to new research in mice.
Published Scientists says identifying some foods as addictive could shift attitudes, stimulate research (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Scientists have published an analysis with a timely and controversial recommendation: It's time for an international shift in the way we think about ultra-processed food and its addictive properties.
