Can changes in nutrition labeling help consumers make better food choices? (1/30/2013)

The Nutrition Facts label was introduced 20 years ago and provides consumers with important information, including: the serving size, the number of servings in the package, the number of calories per serving, and the amount of nutrients for each serving of a packaged food. However, research has shown that consumers often miscalculate the number of calories and the nutritional content of products that have two or more servings per container but are usually consumed in a single eating occasion. ...> Full Article


Lower drinking ages can have an impact on later drinking patterns (1/29/2013)

Lower minimum legal drinking age (MLDA) laws have been associated with short-term effects such as more traffic fatalities and teen suicides. A new study has investigated the long-term and persistent effects of permissive MLDA laws. Findings support an association with problematic drinking behaviors that persist into later adulthood, such as more frequent binge episodes. ...> Full Article

Viagra converts fat cells (1/24/2013)

Researchers from the University of Bonn treated mice with Viagra and made an amazing discovery: The drug converts undesirable white fat cells and could thus potentially melt the unwelcome "spare tire" around the midriff. In addition, the substance also decreases the risk of other complications caused by obesity. The results are now published in the Journal of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology. ...> Full Article


How are middle-aged women affected by burnout? (1/23/2013)

How are middle-aged women affected by burnout?In contrast to previous research findings that showed burnout in middle-aged women to be stable over time, women in a new study were clustered into groups characterized by different developmental patterns of burnout. ...> Full Article


Shorter woman, taller man: Preferences for partner height translate into actual partner choices (1/22/2013)

Finding Mr. or Ms. Right is a complicated process, and choosing a mate may involve compromising on less important factors like their height. However, research published Jan. 16 in the open-access journal PLOS ONE by Gert Stulp and colleagues from the University of Groningen, the Netherlands, suggests that despite the many other factors involved, people's preferences for a partner's height are reflected in real couples in the UK. ...> Full Article

Women who have migraines with aura, which are often visual disturbances such as flashing lights, may be more likely to have problems with their heart and blood vessels, and those on newer contraceptives may be at higher risk for blood clots, according to two studies released today that will be presented at the American Academy of Neurology's 65th Annual Meeting in San Diego, March 16-23, 2013. ...> Full Article


Foods identified as 'whole grain' not always healthy (1/19/2013)

Current standards for classifying foods as "whole grain" are inconsistent and, in some cases, misleading, according to a new study by Harvard School of Public Health researchers. One of the most widely used industry standards, the Whole Grain Stamp, actually identified grain products that were higher in both sugars and calories than products without the Stamp. The researchers urge adoption of a consistent, evidence-based standard for labeling whole grain foods to help consumers and organizations make healthy choices. ...> Full Article


Synthetic 'poop' can cure C. difficile infection, study finds (1/18/2013)

Genes and obesity: Fast food isn't only culprit in expanding waistlines -- DNA is also to blame (1/17/2013)

Researchers at UCLA say it's not just what you eat that makes those pants tighter -- it's also genetics. In a new study, scientists discovered that body-fat responses to a typical fast-food diet are determined in large part by genetic factors, and they have identified several genes they say may control those responses. ...> Full Article


Space-simulation study reveals sodium rhythms in the body (1/16/2013)

Space-simulation study reveals sodium rhythms in the bodyA new study in humans published by Cell Press on Jan. 9 in the journal Cell Metabolism reveals that sodium levels fluctuate rhythmically over the course of weeks in the body, independent of salt intake. This one-of-a-kind study, which examined cosmonauts participating in space-flight simulation studies, challenges widely accepted assumptions that sodium levels are maintained within very narrow limits. ...> Full Article


How belly fat differs from thigh fat -- and why it matters (1/15/2013)

How belly fat differs from thigh fat -- and why it mattersUnlike men, women tend to store more fat on the hips and thighs than in the belly. A study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism helps explain fat distribution differences by determining how belly and thigh fat differ genetically. This research might shift common thinking about fat -- rather than focusing on how to banish belly fat, perhaps we need to tip the balance in favor of heart-friendly fat in the lower body. ...> Full Article


High salt intake linked to social inequalities (1/14/2013)

People from low socio-economic positions in Britain eat more salt than the well off, irrespective of where they live, states a paper led by Warwick Medical School published on Tuesday in the BMJ Open journal. ...> Full Article

Shifting the balance between good fat and bad fat (1/9/2013)

Shifting the balance between good fat and bad fatResearchers at Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute have a new theory about what causes the body to store more fat and burn less energy in obesity -- a protein called p62. According to a study in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, when p62 is missing in fat, the body's metabolic balance shifts -- inhibiting "good" brown fat, while favoring "bad" white fat. These findings indicate that p62 might make a promising target for new therapies aimed at obesity. ...> Full Article


Researchers identify important factor in fat storage and energy metabolism (1/8/2013)
