Nutrition has benefits for brain network organization, new research finds
Nutrition has benefits for brain network organization, new research finds
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Nutrition has been linked to cognitive performance, but researchers have not pinpointed what underlies the connection. A new study by University of Illinois researchers found that monounsaturated fatty acids - a class of nutrients found in olive oils, nuts and avocados - are linked to general intelligence, and that this relationship is driven by the correlation between MUFAs and the organization of the brain's attention network.

Study examines dietary fats' impact on healthy, obese adults
Study examines dietary fats’ impact on healthy, obese adults
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Metabolically healthy obese adults consuming a diet high in unsaturated fat and low in saturated fat may be able to decrease their total cholesterol by 10 points, a new study suggests. However, there was little research evidence to support current dietary recommendations that replacing saturated fat with unsaturated fat aids in weight loss, the researchers also reported in their meta-analysis of recent dietary studies.

Compassion key to treating eating disorders
Self-compassion is an important part of recovery for people with eating disorders, University of Queensland researchers have found. The School of Psychology study reviewed the use of compassion focussed therapy (CFT) in the treatment of eating and weight concerns. CFT, which has grown over the last two decades, encourages self-compassion to alleviate suffering that is created by an individual's self-criticism and shame.

Researchers unlock cheesemaking secret
Researchers unlock cheesemaking secret
Researchers say their new knowledge on the inner workings of a bacterium has important implications for Australia's billion dollar cheese industry. University of Queensland School of Agriculture and Food Sciences researcher Associate Professor Mark Turner said a discovery by a UQ, Columbia University and University of Washington research group had explained the regulation of an enzyme in the bacterium Lactococcus, which is used as a starter culture in cheese production.

Children who skip breakfast may not be getting recommended nutrients
A study by researchers at King's College London has found that children who skip breakfast regularly may not be consuming the daily amounts of key nutrients for growth and development that are recommended by the UK government. Children who ate breakfast every day were deemed to have overall superior nutritional profiles compared to those who didn't.

'Fat but fit' are at increased risk of heart disease
’Fat but fit’ are at increased risk of heart disease
Carrying extra weight could raise your risk of heart attack by more than a quarter, even if you are otherwise healthy. Researchers have found that being overweight or obese increases a person's risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) by up to 28 per cent compared to those with a healthy bodyweight, even if they have healthy blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol levels.

For White Middle Class, Moderate Drinking Is Linked to Cognitive Health in Old Age
Older adults who consume alcohol moderately on a regular basis are more likely to live to the age of 85 without dementia or other cognitive impairments than non-drinkers, according to a University of California San Diego School of Medicine-led study. The findings are published in the August issue of the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease .

Dulled taste may prompt more calories on path to obesity
Cornell food scientists have found that people with a diminished ability to taste food choose sweeter - and likely higher-calorie - fare. This could put people on the path to gaining weight. "We found that the more people lost sensitivity to sweetness, the more sugar they wanted in their foods," said lead author Robin Dando, assistant professor of food science, whose research has been published online by the journal Appetite.

Could redesigning supermarkets, bars and restaurants 'nudge' us away from harmful consumption of food, alcohol and tobacco?
Could redesigning supermarkets, bars and restaurants ’nudge’ us away from harmful consumption of food, alcohol and tobacco?
Behavioural and cognitive scientists at the Universities of Cambridge and Bristol have been awarded a prestigious Wellcome Collaborative Award in Science. This will investigate ways to 'nudge' people towards healthier behaviour - to reduce their food and alcohol consumption and to stop smoking - in order to improve health across the population.

Aging Americans enjoy longer life, better health when avoiding 3 risky behaviors
ANN ARBOR-We've heard it before from our doctors and other health experts: Keep your weight down, don't smoke and cut back on the alcohol if you want to live longer. Now, research from the University of Michigan School of Public Health shows that people of fairly normal weight who never smoked and drank only in moderation have a life expectancy at age 50 that is seven years longer than the average American.

Wild emmer genome sequence completely decoded for the first time
Wild emmer genome sequence completely decoded for the first time
Research news It is a forerunner of bread wheat which man has been cultivating for a hundred years: For the first time, an international team succeeded in deciphering the genome sequence of the Wild Emmer. The results have been published in "Science". They could contribute to the cultivation of more resistant wheat varieties - and support global food production.

Body size and prostate cancer risk
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in Europe and the second most frequently diagnosed cancer in men worldwide. A new study led by researchers in the Nuffield Department of Population Health Cancer Epidemiology Unit (CEU) investigated the associations of height and obesity with prostate cancer by different tumour characteristics and death from prostate cancer and found that taller men and men with more fat are at greater risk of high grade prostate cancer and death from prostate cancer.

Drinking coffee reduces risk of death from all causes, study finds
People who drink around three cups of coffee a day may live longer than non-coffee drinkers, a landmark study has found. The findings come from the largest study of its kind, in which scientists analysed data from more than half a million people across 10 European countries, including the UK, to explore the effect of coffee consumption on risk of mortality.

Cut out sugary drinks to prevent type 2 diabetes, ANU-led study finds
An international study led by ANU has bolstered the global campaign for a sugar tax, finding thousands of cases of type 2 diabetes could be prevented every year in Thailand if people stopped drinking sugary drinks every day. The results come from the Thai Cohort Study from 2005 to 2013, which involved a nation-wide sample of nearly 40,000 adults.

Sugar intake during pregnancy is associated with allergy and allergic asthma in children
Sugar intake during pregnancy is associated with allergy and allergic asthma in children
High maternal sugar intake during pregnancy may increase the risk of allergy and allergic asthma in the offspring, according to an early study led by Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) involving University of Bristol researchers and almost 9,000 mother-child pairs. While some research has reported an association between a high consumption of sugar-containing beverages and asthma in children, the relation between maternal sugar intake during pregnancy and allergy and asthma in the offspring has been little studied.

Naturalness as a success factor
Naturalness as a success factor
‘Naturalness' is a construct - but according to a new study from the ETH Consumer Behavior group, a product's success on the food market is primarily defined by whether or not consumers perceive it as natural. The increasingly artificial and virtual nature of everyday life has now achieved broad acceptance, and the benefits that technological development bring to everyone cannot be denied.

Corn better used as food than biofuel, study finds
Corn better used as food than biofuel, study finds
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Corn is grown not only for food, it is also an important renewable energy source. Renewable biofuels can come with hidden economic and environmental issues, and the question of whether corn is better utilized as food or as a biofuel has persisted since ethanol came into use. For the first time, researchers at the University of Illinois have quantified and compared these issues in terms of economics of the entire production system to determine if the benefits of biofuel corn outweigh the costs.
