Published Avid appetite in childhood linked to later eating disorder symptoms (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
The study looked at survey data from 3,670 young people in the UK and the Netherlands to investigate how appetite traits in early childhood might relate to the likelihood of developing eating disorder symptoms up to 10 years later. The researchers found that a particularly high food responsiveness, defined as the urge to eat when you see, smell or taste palatable food, at the ages of four and five was linked to a higher likelihood of reporting a range of eating disorder symptoms at ages 12 to 14.
Published Could ultra-processed foods be the new 'silent' killer? (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Hundreds of novel ingredients never encountered by human physiology are now found in nearly 60 percent of the average adult's diet and nearly 70 percent of children's diets in the U.S. An emerging health hazard is the unprecedented consumption of these ultra-processed foods in the standard American diet. This may be the new 'silent' killer, as was unrecognized high blood pressure in previous decades. Physicians provide important insights in a battle where the entertainment industry, the food industry and public policy do not align with their patients' needs.
Published Protein-rich breakfast boosts satiety and concentration (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A new study has explored the link between diet and cognitive function, and the results reveal that a protein-rich breakfast can increase satiety and improve concentration. This is important knowledge in a society with increasing obesity rates and lifestyle-related diseases.
Published Understanding rapid weight loss in older women: Message from the heart (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Unexplained rapid weight loss in older people could be a sign of underlying disease and can be linked with increased risk of falls and fractures, as well as a poorer long-term prognosis.
Published Researchers uncover potential non-opioid treatment for chronic pain (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A new approach to treating neuropathic pain is making a key step forward. Neuropathic pain is among the most difficult types of pain to alleviate and current treatments are often ineffective. Researchers have identified a potential non-opioid treatment.
Published Firing nerve fibers in the brain are supplied with energy on demand (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
To rapidly transmit electrical signals in the brain, the long nerve fibers are insulated by specialized cells called oligodendrocytes. These cells also respond to the electrical signals of active nerve fibers and provide them with energy on demand, as researchers have discovered. If this process, regulated by potassium, is disabled in mice, the nerve fibers are severely damaged as the animals age -- resembling the defects of neurodegenerative diseases.
Published Study urges people to think twice before going on a diet (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A new qualitative study highlights the negative interpersonal and psychological consequences associated with 'yo-yo dieting,' also known as weight cycling. The work underscores how toxic yo-yo dieting can be and how difficult it can be for people to break the cycle.
Published 'Furry fruit' improves mental health -- fast (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Kiwifruit has proven itself as a powerful mood booster and new research has shown just how fast its effects can be.
Published Good and bad news for people with low back pain (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Low back pain is a major cause of disability around the globe, with more than 570 million people affected. New research shows that many people with persistent low back pain (more than 12 weeks) continue to have moderate-to-high levels of pain and disability.
Published Clarifying the cause of Guillain-Barré Syndrome (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Guillain-?Barr Syndrome is a rare condition in which a person's immune system attacks the peripheral nerves. People affected suffer from muscle weakness and paralysis. A research team led by ETH Zurich has now clarified the mechanism of this autoimmune disease.
Published Scientists identify how dietary restriction slows brain aging and increases lifespan (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Restricting calories is known to improve health and increase lifespan, but much of how it does so remains a mystery, especially in regard to how it protects the brain. Scientists have now uncovered a role for a gene called OXR1 that is necessary for the lifespan extension seen with dietary restriction and is essential for healthy brain aging.
Published RSV shown to infect nerve cells, cause inflammation and damage (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
RSV, a common infection in children and the elderly thought to only infect the respiratory tract, can also infect nerve cells and cause nerve damage, according to a new study. The findings could have major implications about whether RSV could be connected to neurological or developmental disorders.
Published Different pain types in multiple sclerosis can cause difficulty staying active (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Chronic pain can present in multiple forms for multiple sclerosis patients. Some forms make it harder to stay active than others.
Published Drugs used to treat Type 2 diabetes reduce alcohol cravings, use in individuals with obesity (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
An analysis of those posts, together with a remote study of individuals with obesity who reported using semaglutide and tirzepatide, found that the drugs decreased cravings and reduced alcohol consumption, according to a new study.
Published Hearing loss increases the risk of dementia (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
In a new study featuring data from 573,088 people, researchers have found a link between hearing loss and the development of dementia. The study is the largest of its kind to date.
Published Spinal cord injury causes acute and systemic muscle wasting (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Acute spinal cord injury (SCI) patients lose body weight and muscle mass, despite being on a high-calorie diet while in the intensive care unit. Their muscle wasting is substantial and extends beyond what can explained by inactivity or denervation (loss of nerve supply) alone. Research sheds new light and decodes early muscle loss after SCI to provide an unprecedent first understanding that muscle wasting is rapid and severe; a systemic phenomenon and glucocorticoid dependent.
Published Body dissatisfaction linked with depression risk in children (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Body dissatisfaction at age 11 is linked to increased risk of depression by age 14, finds a new longitudinal study.
Published Fat flies live longer on a diet at any age (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Putting even elderly, obese flies on a restricted calorie diet extends their lifespan markedly, suggesting obese humans might get similar benefits from cutting calories, even at advanced age.
Published Survey finds Americans struggle to maintain healthy habits during the holiday season (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
The holiday season is a time for joy and celebration but many Americans admit the endless flurry of activities make it difficult to eat healthy, exercise and get adequate rest, according to a new survey.
Published Lost brain function restored in mice after stroke (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Researchers have succeeded in restoring lost brain function in mouse models of stroke using small molecules that in the future could potentially be developed into a stroke recovery therapy.
