    Older adults who added hazelnuts to their diet for a few months significantly improved their levels of two key micronutrients.

  • Obesity intervention needed before pregnancy

    New research supports the need for dietary and lifestyle interventions before overweight and obese women become pregnant.

  • Elevated hormone flags liver problems in mice with methylmalonic acidemia

    Researchers have discovered a hormone in a mouse study that can be used immediately to can help doctors predict how severely patients with the rare disease methylmalonic acidemia are affected and when to refer them for liver transplants. The findings also might shed light on more common disorders such as fatty liver disease, obesity and diabetes.

  • Link between neonatal vitamin D deficiency and schizophrenia confirmed

    Newborns with vitamin D deficiency have an increased risk of schizophrenia later in life, a team of researchers has reported. The discovery could help prevent some cases of the disease by treating vitamin D deficiency during the earliest stages of life. The study found newborns with vitamin D deficiency had a 44 percent increased risk of being diagnosed with schizophrenia as adults compared to those with normal vitamin D levels.

  • Blood vessel growth key to healthy fat tissue, research shows

    New research shows that inhibiting a protein within blood vessels stimulates new blood vessel growth, resulting in healthier fat tissue (adipose) and lower blood sugar levels. The findings provide key insight into how improving blood vessel growth could help to mitigate serious health problems that arise with obesity, such as diabetes.

  • Gene that lets you eat as much as you want holds promise against obesity

    It sounds too good to be true, but a novel approach that might allow you to eat as much as you want without gaining weight could be a reality in the near future. When a single gene known as RCAN1 was removed in mice and they were fed a high fat diet, they failed to gain weight, even after gorging on high fat foods for prolonged periods.

  • High childhood BMI linked to obesity at age 24 in women

    Girls who gain weight more rapidly between the ages of 5 and 15 are more likely to be obese at age 24, according to researchers.

  • A Mediterranean diet in pregnancy is associated with lower risk of accelerated growth

    Over 2,700 women and their children participated in this study that highlights the benefits of a healthy diet.

  • Is being a night owl bad for your health?

    In the first ever international review of studies analysing whether being an early riser or a night owl can influence your health, researchers have uncovered a growing body of evidence indicating an increased risk of ill health in people with an evening preference as they have more erratic eating patterns and consume more unhealthy foods.

  • Weight cycling is associated with a higher risk of death

    Weight cycling is associated with a higher risk of death, according to a new study published in the Endocrine Society's Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.

  • Only 12 percent of American adults are metabolically healthy, study finds

    The prevalence of metabolic health in American adults is 'alarmingly low,' even among people who are normal weight, according to a new study. Only one in eight Americans is achieving optimal metabolic health. This carries serious implications for public health since poor metabolic health leaves people more vulnerable to developing Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and other serious health issues.

  • Despite common obesity gene variants obese children lose weight after lifestyle changes

    Children who are genetically predisposed to overweight, due to common gene variants, can still lose weight by changing their diet and exercise habits, according to a new study.

  • Good help in primary care for children with obesity

    Children treated for obesity in primary or outpatient care have a relatively good chance of fending off weight problems over the next few years as well, a study shows.

  • Study in mice suggests drug to turn fat 'brown' could help fight obesity

    Our bodies contain two types of fat: white fat and brown fat. While white fat stores calories, brown fat burns energy and could help us lose weight. Now, scientists have found a way of making the white fat 'browner' and increasing the efficiency of brown fat. While their study was carried out in mice, they hope that this finding will translate into humans and provide a potential new drug to help fight obesity.

  • Intermittent fasting: No advantage over conventional weight loss diets

    Intermittent fasting helps lose weight and promotes health. However, it is not superior to conventional calorie restriction diets, scientists have found out in the largest investigation on intermittent fasting to date. The scientists conclude that there are many paths leading to a healthier weight. Everybody must find a diet plan that fits them best and then just do it!

  • Weight loss procedure shrinks both fat and muscle

    Left gastric artery embolization, a novel interventional procedure used to treat obesity, leads to the loss of both fat and muscle, according to a new study. Researchers said the loss of muscle mass is concerning and underscores the importance of proper nutritional counseling after the procedure.

  • Orange juice, leafy greens and berries may be tied to decreased memory loss in men

    Eating leafy greens, dark orange and red vegetables and berry fruits, and drinking orange juice may be associated with a lower risk of memory loss over time in men.

  • Probiotics no help to young kids with stomach virus

    A major US study has found that a commonly used probiotic is not effective in improving symptoms of diarrhea and vomiting in young children with gastroenteritis.

  • Parental 'feeding styles' reflect children's genes

    New research challenges the idea that a child's weight largely reflects the way their parents feed them. Instead, parents appear to adopt feeding styles in response to their children's natural body weight, which is largely genetically influenced.

  • Long-term exposure to road traffic noise may increase the risk of obesity

    Long term exposure to road traffic noise is associated with increased risk of obesity.

  • Milk allergy affects half of US food-allergic kids under age 1

    New research found that over two percent of all US children under the age of 5 have a milk allergy, and 53 percent of food-allergic infants under age 1 have a cow's milk allergy.

  • Safest way to dine out for those with food allergies is using up to 15 strategies

    New research examined what tools people who have food allergies use to prevent allergic reactions at restaurants.

  • Omega-3 fatty acids reduce the risk of premature birth

    A new review has found that increasing the intake of omega-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPUFA) during pregnancy reduces the risk of premature births.

  • Seeing and smelling food prepares the mouse liver for digestion

    The sight or smell of something delicious is often enough to get your mouth watering, but the physiological response to food perception may go well beyond your salivary glands. New research in mice shows that the sight and smell of food alone may be enough to kickstart processes in the liver that promote the digestion of food.

  • Gut hormone and brown fat interact to tell the brain it's time to stop eating

    Researchers have shown that so-called 'brown fat' interacts with the gut hormone secretin in mice to relay nutritional signals about fullness to the brain during a meal. The study bolsters our understanding of a long-suspected role of brown adipose tissue (BAT) -- a type of body fat known to generate heat when an animal is cold -- in the control of food intake.

  • Dietary fat is good? Dietary fat is bad? Coming to consensus

    Which is better, a low-fat/high-carbohydrate diet or a high-fat/low-carbohydrate diet -- or is it the type of fat that matters? In a new paper, researchers with diverse expertise and perspectives on the issues laid out the case for each position and came to a consensus and a future research agenda.

  • Variance in gut microbiome in Himalayan populations linked to dietary lifestyle

    The gut bacteria of four Himalayan populations differ based on their dietary lifestyles, according to a new study.

  • Should you eat a low-gluten diet?

    When healthy people eat a low-gluten and fiber-rich diet compared with a high-gluten diet they experience less intestinal discomfort including less bloating which researchers show are due to changes of the composition and function of gut bacteria. The new study also shows a modest weight loss following low-gluten dieting. The researchers attribute the impact of diet on healthy adults more to change in composition of dietary fibers than gluten itself.

  • Resistant bacteria: Can raw vegetables and salad pose a health risk?

    Salad is popular with people who want to maintain a balanced and healthy diet. Salad varieties are often offered for sale ready-cut and film-packaged. It is known that these types of fresh produce may be contaminated with bacteria that are relevant from the point of view of hygiene. Researchers have now shown that these bacteria may also harbor bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics.

  • Study of two tribes sheds light on role of Western-influenced diet in blood pressure

    A South American tribe living in near-total isolation with no Western dietary influences showed no increase in average blood pressure from age one to age 60, according to a new study. In comparison, a nearby tribe whose diet includes some processed foods and salt did show higher blood pressure into late middle age.

  • Low-carb diets cause people to burn more calories

    Most people regain the weight they lose from dieting within one or two years, in part because the body adapts by slowing metabolism and burning fewer calories. A meticulous study now finds that eating fewer carbohydrates increases the number of calories burned. The findings suggest that low-carb diets can help people maintain weight loss, making obesity treatment more effective.

  • Colder, darker climates increase alcohol consumption and liver disease

    People living in colder regions with less sunlight consume more alcohol and experience more alcoholic liver disease.

  • If your diet fails, try again; your heart will thank you

    Risk factors for cardiovascular disease closely track with changes in eating patterns, even only after a month or so.

  • Treating obesity: One size does not fit all

    Understanding the very different characteristics of subgroups of obese patients may hold the key to devising more effective treatments and interventions, new research found.

  • Big change from small player: Mitochondria alter body metabolism and gene expression

    Mitochondria have their own DNA, but the 13 genes in human mitochondria -- along with DNA sequences for tRNAs, rRNAs and some small peptides -- are massively overshadowed by the 20,000 genes in the human nucleus. Nevertheless, these diminutive mitochondria may have a strong influence on cellular metabolism and susceptibility to metabolic diseases like heart failure or obesity.

  • How many calories do you burn? It depends on time of day

    Researchers have made the surprising discovery that the number of calories people burn while at rest changes with the time of day. When at rest, people burn 10 percent more calories in the late afternoon and early evening than in the early morning hours.

  • Study calls for sugar tax

    People who drink sugary beverages are more likely to eat fast food and confectionery and less likely to make healthy dietary choices, new research has found.

  • Nasal delivery of weight-loss hormone eases breathing problems in sleeping mice

    Experimenting with mice, Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers have added to evidence that a hormone best known for helping regulate hunger and body weight might also ease breathing problems experienced during sleep more effectively when given through the nose.

  • Eat your vegetables (and fish): Another reason why they may promote heart health

    Elevated levels of trimethylamine N-oxide (TMAO) -- a compound linked with the consumption of fish, seafood and a primarily vegetarian diet -- may reduce hypertension-related heart disease symptoms. New research in rats finds that low-dose treatment with TMAO reduced heart thickening (cardiac fibrosis) and markers of heart failure in an animal model of hypertension.

  • Gene that regulates fat accumulation and obesity

    A new study showed that regardless of diet, a protein called Pannexin 1 significantly regulates the accumulation of fat in mice. The study suggests that a deletion of the Panx1 gene in the early stages of development of mouse fat cells increases the amount of fat accumulated, leading to a higher risk for obesity later in life.

  • A hypocaloric Mediterranean diet and daily exercise maintain weight loss

    Following a Mediterranean diet low in calories and engaging daily physical activity have been demonstrated to result in reduce body weight and cardiovascular risk in overweight patients and patients with metabolic syndrome, and to maintain these benefits after one year.

  • Nuts for nuts? Daily serving may help control weight and benefit health

    Eating Brazil nuts and other varieties of nuts daily may prevent weight gain and provide other cardiovascular benefits, according to two separate preliminary studies.

  • Does dietary restriction protect against age-related leaky gut?

    Flies on dietary restriction are protected from leaky gut and systemic inflammation as they age. Conversely, flies on a rich diet are more prone to intestinal permeability, developing gaps in the intestinal barrier which are caused by an age-related increase in the death of intestinal epithelial cells. Researchers also looked at dysbiosis as a contributor to leaky gut and concluded that diet may ultimately be the primary driver in cellular changes leading to intestinal permeability.

  • Trial finds diet rich in fish helps fight asthma

    A clinical trial has shown eating fish such as salmon, trout and sardines as part of a healthy diet can reduce asthma symptoms in children.

  • How diet impact health and well-being

    From the standpoint of heart health, the Tsimane are a model group. A population indigenous to the Bolivian Amazon, the Tsimane demonstrate next to no heart disease. They have minimal hypertension, low prevalence of obesity and and their cholesterol levels are relatively healthy. And those factors don't seem to change with age.

  • Genetic factors tied to obesity may protect against diabetes

    Some genetic variations associated with obesity actually protect against Type 2 diabetes, heart attack and stroke, new findings suggest.

  • Can chocolate, tea, coffee and zinc help make you more healthy?

    Ageing and a low life expectancy are caused, at least partly, by oxidative stress. Scientists have discovered that zinc can activate an organic molecule, helping to protect against oxidative stress.

  • Immigration to the United States changes a person's microbiome

    Researchers new evidence that the gut microbiota of immigrants and refugees rapidly Westernize after a person's arrival in the United States. The study of communities migrating from Southeast Asia to the US could provide insight into some of the metabolic health issues, including obesity and diabetes, affecting immigrants to the country.

  • To ward off fatty liver, breast is best for mom

    Researchers have discovered that mothers who breastfed a child or children for six months or more are at lower risk for developing non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) years later during mid-life. With no other current prevention options aside from a healthy lifestyle, they say the finding may represent an early modifiable risk factor for a serious and chronic disease.

  • Inflammation can lead to circadian sleep disorders

    Inflammation, which is the root cause of autoimmune disorders including arthritis, type 1 diabetes, irritable bowel syndrome and Crohn's disease, has unexpected effects on body clock function and can lead to sleep and shiftwork-type disorders, a new study in mice found.

  • Cottonseed oil linked to lower cholesterol

    Researchers at the University of Georgia have found that a high-fat diet enriched with cottonseed oil drastically improved cholesterol profiles in young adult men.

  • Plant-based or vegan diet may be best for keeping type 2 diabetes in check

    A predominantly plant-based or vegan diet may be best for keeping type 2 diabetes in check, not least because of its potential impact on mood, suggests a systematic review of the available evidence.

  • Fermented dairy products may protect against heart attack, study suggests

    Men who eat plenty of fermented dairy products have a smaller risk of incident coronary heart disease than men who eat less of these products, according to a new study from Finland. A very high consumption of non-fermented dairy products, on the other hand, was associated with an increased risk of incident coronary heart disease.

  • Vitamin D levels in the blood linked to cardiorespiratory fitness

    New research finds that higher levels of vitamin D are associated with better exercise capacity.

  • Cephalopods could become an important food source in the global community

    With a growing world population and climate challenges that are causing agricultural areas to shrink, many are wondering where sustainable food will come from in the future. A professor of gastrophysics and a chef offer a suggestion in a new research article: The cephalopod population (including squid, octopus and cuttlefish) in the oceans is growing and growing -- let's get better at cooking them so that many more people will want to eat them!

  • Obese mice lose a third of their fat using a natural protein

    To the great surprise of cancer researchers, a protein they investigated for its possible role in cancer turned out to be a powerful regulator of metabolism.

  • Fruit fly study challenges theories on evolution and high-carb diets

    Fruit fly research challenges neutral theory of molecular evolution and suggests one day we may be prescribed diets according to our genes.

  • Just a few drinks can change how memories are formed

    Researchers have found that alcohol hijacks a conserved memory pathway in the brain and changes which versions of genes are made, forming the cravings that fuel addiction.

  • Tooth loss can indicate malnutrition, study finds

    Older adults are at risk for both impaired oral health and malnutrition, according to a new study.

  • Late night snacker? Make it cottage cheese

    Researchers found that consuming 30 grams of protein about 30 minutes before bed appears to have a positive effect on muscle quality, metabolism and overall health. And for those who have sworn off eating at night, there is no gain in body fat.
