Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake (for my birthday!)

Well, today is my birthday, and I am turning the big FOUR-OH! So, what better way to ring in another decade than with a super scrumptious homemade Chocolate Chip Bundt cake?

Size-sensing protein controls glucose uptake and storage in fat cells

Researchers have discovered that a molecule which can sense the swelling of fat cells also controls a signaling pathway that allows fat cells to take up and store excess glucose. Mice missing this protein, known as SWELL1, gain less weight (fat) than normal mice on a high-fat diet, but also develop diabetes.

Fiber-rich diet linked to lowered risk of painful knee osteoarthritis

A fiber-rich diet is linked to a lowered risk of painful knee osteoarthritis, finds the first study of its kind.

Dietary strategy to address obesity uses component in red chili

Scientists have discovered a dietary strategy that may address obesity by reducing endotoxemia, a major contributor to chronic, low-grade inflammation (CLGI). The researchers uncovered an interaction between dietary capsaicin (CAP), the major pungent component in red chili, and gut microbiota. Show More Summary

Rethinking nutrition labelling: Food is not just the sum of its nutrients

The nutritional value of a food should be evaluated on the basis of the foodstuff as a whole, and not as an effect of the individual nutrients. This is the conclusion of an international expert panel of epidemiologists, physicians, food and nutrition scientists. Their conclusion reshapes our understanding of the importance of nutrients and their interaction.

Eating beans instead of beef would sharply reduce greenhouse gasses

If Americans would eat beans instead of beef, the United States would immediately realize approximately 50 to 75 percent of its GHG reduction targets for the year 2020.

Sleep loss affects your waistline

Sleep loss increases the risk of obesity through a combination of effects on energy metabolism. This research will highlight how disrupted sleep patterns, a common feature of modern living, can predispose to weight gain, by affecting people’s appetite and responses to food and exercise.

Nutritional properties of mushrooms are better preserved when they are grilled or microwaved

Culinary treatments (boiling, microwaving, grilling, and deep frying) influence on proximate composition and antioxidant capacity of most cultivated mushrooms worlwide. A study has shown that microwaving and grilling are the best processes to maintain the nutritional profile of mushrooms.

Father's pre-conception vitamin D intake linked to child height and weight at 5 years old

New research shows that a father's vitamin D intake pre-conception is associated with his child's height and weight at five years old.

Keeping young women's weight gain to less than 800g/year could help prevent progression from healthy weight to overweight and obesity

New research shows that rates of weight gain are established by the time women are 18-23 years old. Measuring rates of weight gain at this age could identify women who are likely to become overweight or obese by the time they are 40. Furthermore, women who are divorced, separated or widowed, and those who smoke >10/day are most at risk of becoming overweight or obese.

Eating a diet rich in fruit and vegetables could cut obesity risk

Pro-vegetarian diets (with a higher consumption of plant-based foods compared to animal-based foods) could provide substantial protection against obesity, according to new research.

Healthy brain aging linked to omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in the blood

Two new studies link patterns of polyunsaturated fatty acids in the blood to the integrity of brain structures and cognitive abilities that are known to decline early in aging. The studies add to the evidence that dietary intake of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids can promote healthy aging, the researchers said. Further research is needed to test this hypothesis, they said.

Another reason to exercise: Burning bone fat a key to better bone health

It's a fat-burning secret anyone interested in bone health should know. For the first time, researchers show that exercising burns the fat found within bone marrow and offers evidence that this process improves bone quality and the amount of bone in a matter of weeks.

Tens of millions of Americans drink alcohol at dangerously high levels, study finds

Nearly 32 million adults in the United States consumed more than twice the number of drinks considered binge drinking on at least one occasion, according to a 2013 survey that asked about past-year drinking. This higher level of drinking is associated with increased health and safety risks.

Regular physical activity and reduced sedentary time reduces build-up of dangerous liver fat

New research shows that both regular physical activity and avoiding inactivity (sedentary behavior) help reduce build-up of dangerous liver fat, an important complication of obesity.

Inflammatory signature of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease

A team of investigators has identified key inflammatory cells involved in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Current treatment for the disorder involves changes to diet, yet no medication has been approved for treatment. Findings from this study provide a potential therapeutic target and offer the possibility for developing a treatment.

Switching to a low-glycemic diet may stop age-related eye disease, study suggests

Development of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) could be arrested by switching from a high-glycemic to a low-glycemic diet, suggests a new study conducted in mice.

Tamoxifen protects against obesity-related metabolic disorders

Tamoxifen is the gold standard for endocrine treatment of estrogen-receptor positive breast cancer. Tamoxifen is also known to have metabolic effects. A new study reports that the drug also prevents obesity, fatty liver, and insulin resistance in female mice who were fed a high-fat diet and whose ovaries had been removed. Show More Summary

Experts argue that obesity is a chronic, relapsing, progressive disease

Experts consider the argument for obesity as a chronic relapsing disease process. They note that obesity fits the epidemiological model of a disease process except that the toxic or pathological agent is food rather than a microbe.
