Increased Risk for Heart Disease and Death

E Researchers from Northwestern University analyzed data from almost 30,000 participants with an average follow-up time of 17.5 years. They found that each 300 mg dose of dietary cholesterol was associated with an increased risk for cardiovascular disease and mortality by 17 & 18 percent, respectively. In regard to eggs: each 1/2 egg caused a…

Prevent Increased Risk of Death

n Researchers assessed diet records for approximately 96,000 Seventh-day Adventist participants and tracked meat consumption and mortality rates. Those with the highest intake of both red and processed meats increased the risk of death from cardiovascular disease, and all-cause mortality when compared to those with no intake of these products. Those who consumed more unprocessed…

Human Kidney Computational Model

Researchers at the University of Waterloo in Canada developed a new computational model of the human kidney to replace previous computational models that are based on rodent kidneys. This computational model enables researchers to better learn about the functions of the kidney, including how the organ regulates the body’s salt, potassium, and acid content and…

Reducing Risk for Chronic Disease

According to a study funded by the National Cancer Institute (NIH), those eating vegan diets are less likely to develop chronic diseases, compared with other dietary groups. Researchers analyzed the diets of those following vegan, lacto-ovo-vegetarian, semi-vegetarian, pesco-vegetarian, and non-vegetarian eating patterns and tracked several health biomarkers. Based on those biomarkers, the vegan group had…

Protecting Your Brain

A new study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease found that eating more mushrooms could help to protect your brain from cognitive impairment. Researchers found those people who had the highest intake of edible mushrooms also had the lowest risk of mild cognitive impairment (MCI). The researchers at the National University of Singapore explored…

Addiction now defined as brain disorder

Addiction now defined as brain disorder, not behavior issue. Decades of research convinced American Society of Addiction Medicine to change definition Addiction is a chronic brain disorder and not simply a behavior problem involving alcohol, drugs, gambling or sex, experts contend in a new definition of addiction, one that is not solely related to problematic…

Low Carbohydrate Diets Increase Risk Heart for Disorder

L Important Note: This study references complex carbohydrates Low-carbohydrate diets increase the risk for atrial fibrillation (AFib), a common disorder of heart rhythm, according to a poster presented at the American College of Cardiology’s 68th Annual Scientific Session. Researchers tracked daily carbohydrate intake in 14,000 diet records from the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) study…

Aid in Alzheimer’s Study

Donated Human Brains Aid Alzheimer’s Study Using donated human brains, researchers from the Universities of Manchester, Bristol, Liverpool, and Auckland studied the differences of protein expression between healthy human brains and those with Alzheimer’s disease to produce the largest dataset of its type ever, and the data is freely available online for any scientist to…

Placenta-on-a-chip Research

Caffeine Transfer from Mother to Fetus Studied with Placenta-on-a-Chip Researchers at Iowa State University have used “placenta-on-a-chip” technology, to see if, and how much, caffeine can cross from mother to baby. In the human body, the placenta feeds oxygen and nutrients from the mother into the fetus through the umbilical cord. A thin barrier separates…

A New Model to Study Brain Tumors

3D-Bioprinted Mini-Brain: A New Model to Study Brain Tumors Scientists at the University of Twente in the Netherlands created a 3D-bioprinted mini model of the brain consisting of glioblastoma cells, which are the site of a very aggressive type of brain tumor, to study the interactions between immune cells and to test drugs that target…
