Published Taking higher-than-recommended doses of vitamin D for five years reduced the risk of atrial fibrillation (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Taking higher-than-recommended doses of vitamin D for five years reduced the risk of atrial fibrillation in older men and women, according to a new study.
Published Molecular imaging identifies brain changes in response to food cues; offers insight into obesity interventions (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Molecular imaging with 18F-flubatine PET/MRI has shown that neuroreceptors in the brains of individuals with obesity respond differently to food cues than those in normal-weight individuals, making the neuroreceptors a prime target for obesity treatments and therapy. This research contributes to the understanding of the fundamental mechanisms underlying obesity and offers valuable insights into potential medical interventions.
Published Lean body mass, age linked with alcohol elimination rates in women (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Research links women's lean body mass with how quickly they eliminate alcohol from their system. Women with obesity and those who are older eliminate alcohol from their bloodstreams faster than those of normal weight and those who are younger.
Published Fewer meals may prevent Type 2 diabetes, obesity (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
When intermittent fasting became all the rage among Hollywood celebrities, skeptics balked at the idea of skipping meals. But new research suggests the celebs might not have been that far off. The review found that a specific type of restricted eating may reduce the chances of developing Type 2 diabetes and improve your overall health. Known as time-restricted eating, this type of fasting means having regular but fewer meals, cutting out late-night snacks and not eating for 12 to 14 hours (often overnight).
Published The latest weapon against cancer is ... a keto diet? (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Keto diets shrink pancreatic and colorectal tumors by starving them of the glucose they need to survive. But they also speed up development of a lethal wasting disease called cachexia. In mice, researchers have found that pairing keto with a corticosteroid prevents cachexia and increases survival.
Published How chronic stress drives the brain to crave comfort food (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Stress can override natural satiety cues to drive more food intake and boost cravings for sweets.
Published Cutting breakfast carbs can benefit people with Type 2 diabetes (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Researchers suggest a simple tweak to the first meal of the day might help people living with Type 2 diabetes (T2D) better control their blood sugar levels. Switching from a traditional western-style low-fat breakfast, like oatmeal, toast and fruit, to a low-carb meal higher in protein and fat, like eggs with bacon or cheese, can help people with T2D better manage their blood sugar for most of the day.
Published Researchers design an innovative strategy to fight obesity through gene therapy (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A scientific team has designed a strategy to fight obesity and diabetes in mice through ex vivo gene therapy which consists of implanting cells that have been manipulated and transformed in order to treat a disease. This is the first study to apply the ex vivo gene therapy technique to generate and implant cells that express the CPT1AM protein, an enzyme that plays a decisive role in many metabolic diseases such as obesity.
Published Obesity increases risk of mental disorders throughout life (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Being obese significantly increases the chances of also developing mental disorders. This applies to all age groups, with women at higher risk than men for most diseases.
Published Junk food may impair our deep sleep (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
In a new study, researchers have investigated how junk food affects sleep. Healthy participants consumed an unhealthier as well as a healthier diet in a randomized order. After the unhealthier diet, the quality of the participants' deep sleep had deteriorated, compared with those who had followed the healthier diet.
Published A student's poor eating habits can lead to a lifetime of illness (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A researcher is cautioning that a person's poor eating habits established during post-secondary studies can contribute to future health issues including obesity, respiratory illnesses and depression.
Published Vitamin D alters developing neurons in the brain's dopamine circuit (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Neuroscientists have shown how vitamin D deficiency affects developing neurons in the brain's dopamine circuit, which may lead to the dopamine dysfunction seen in adults with schizophrenia.
Published The Mediterranean Diet: Good for your health and your hip pocket (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
We've heard it time and time again -- the Mediterranean diet is great for our health. But despite the significant health benefits of this eating plan, a common deterrent is often the expected costs, especially when budgets are tight.
Published Researchers pinpoint brain cells that drive appetite in obesity (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A group of brain cells discovered by researchers reveals a potential new approach to anti-obesity treatment.
Published The feeling of hunger itself may slow aging in flies (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
While it has been long understood that limiting the amount of food eaten can promote healthy aging in a wide range of animals, including humans, a new study has revealed that the feeling of hunger itself may be enough to slow aging.
Published Behavior patterns of people who achieve clinically significant weight loss (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A new study analyzing data on over 20,000 U.S. adults links a healthier diet and increased exercise to weight loss that reduces heart disease risk -- while associating skipping meals and taking prescription diet pills with minimal weight loss, weight maintenance or weight gain.
Published Arterial stiffness may cause metabolic syndrome in adolescents via an increase in fasting insulin and LDL cholesterol (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Arterial stiffness may be a novel risk factor for metabolic syndrome in teens.
Published Diet high in fruit and vegetables linked to lower miscarriage risk (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A preconception and early-pregnancy diet that contains lots of fruit, vegetables, seafood, dairy, eggs and grain may be associated with reducing risk of miscarriage, a new review of research suggests.
Published Study links poor diet to 14 million cases of type 2 diabetes globally (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A research model of dietary intake in 184 countries estimates that poor diet contributed to over 14.1 million cases of type 2 diabetes in 2018, representing over 70% of new diagnoses globally.
Published Could a vitamin deficiency cause 'double-jointedness' and hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos syndrome? (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
New research identifies genetic cause for hypermobility and hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, a novel discovery that may also, for the first time, allow medical professionals to diagnose and treat the connective tissue disorders.
