Cracking the connection between pediatric obesity and cancer

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 01:08:45 +0100

Obesity and cancer risk have a mysterious relationship, with obesity increasing the risk for 13 types of cancer. For some cancers — including pediatric cancers — obesity affects survival rates, which are lower for people who are obese.With an increasing population of overweight and obese children in the United States, researchers and physicians are racing to understand this connection – and what to do about it.Dr.Steven Mittelman, chief of pediatric endocrinology atUCLA Mattel Children ’s Hospital, is among those looking for clues to improve children ’s survival and recovery from cancer. But unlike most other researchers, Mittelman explores the connection from the perspective of the fat cell, not the cancer cell; he’s trying to understand the environment in the body that fat it...

Can Alcohol Help You Live Longer? Here ’s What the Research Really Says

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 18:48:00 +0100

New research, which was presented at the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s annual conference, has found that moderate drinking is linked to a longer life. Drinking about two glasses of wine or beer a day was linked to an 18% drop in a person’s risk of early death—an even stronger effect than the life-preserving practice of exercise, according to the researchers. The results came from the 90+ Study, a research project out of the University of California Irvine’s Institute for Memory Impairments and Neurological Disorders that examines the habits of people who live to at least 90. Though the study has not yet been published in a scientific journal, it triggered a spate of booze-praising headlines. But can alcohol actually help you live longer? Res...

Which Is Better for Weight Loss, a Low-Fat Diet or a Low-Carb Diet?

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 16:00:17 +0100

There’s long been debate over whether low-fat or low-carb diets are better for weight loss. Some dieters swear by plans that eliminate grains, fruits and other carbohydrates, while others defend diets that cut down on red meat, dairy and other fatty foods. So who’s right? Both — and neither, according to new research published in JAMA. In a 600-person, year-long study, the two eating styles helped dieters drop almost exactly the same number of pounds — and there didn’t seem to be much rhyme or reason as to who succeeded on which plan, explains study author Christopher Gardner, director of nutrition studies at the Stanford Prevention Research Center. “We really did get a lot of people on both diets to be successful,” Gardner says. “You can b...

Obalon: Whistleblower ’ s allegations ‘ without merit ’

Obalon Therapeutics (NSDQ:OBLN) said today that a probe by its audit committee found that the whistleblower allegations that last month sundered a $35 million offering are “without merit.” In January the San Diego-based company terminated the offering after the whistleblower told its independent auditors, KPMG, of the allegations of improper revenue recognition during the fourth quarter. Obalon was looking to offer 5.5 million shares at $5.50 per share, for roughly $30.3 million plus an over-allotment worth another $4.5 million. Obalon said at the time that the allegations made it “infeasible for the company to complete an investigation of the allegations prior to the intended closing of the public offering.” Today the company said that it’s board’s four-membe...

Weekend Recipe: Steel-Cut Oats and Chai Porridge

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 21:00:59 +0100

The cold weather inspires me to nourish myself with warm foods and there’s no better warm, comfort food than porridge. I love the creamy and chewy texture of steel-cut oats, slowly simmered with warming aromatics such as vanilla bean, cinnamon and ginger. You can also add other spices or fruits such as smashed banana or diced apple. When serving this porridge, it’s important to have an extra pot of steaming hot milk on the side, ready to pour over. I think serving with hot milk is probably the most important rule in porridge making as it allows all the flavours to come together in perfect balance. You can serve your porridge with your choice of milk, but I love mine made with almond milk. I normally make a double batch of this recipe so I can just reheat it the next morning fo...

5 Places Where People Live the Longest and Healthiest Lives

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 19:05:48 +0100

Global life expectancy averages out to 71.4 years. That means, of course, that some parts of the world see much shorter life spans, while others enjoy far greater longevity. Five places, in particular, fall into the latter category. They’re known as Blue Zones—named for the blue circles researchers drew to identify the first one on a map—and they’re home to some of the oldest and healthiest people in the world. Dan Buettner, author of The Blue Zones and The Blue Zones Solution, told TIME why residents of these places live so long—and how you can steal their habits. Sardinia, Italy A largely plant-based diet, daily physical activity and familial closeness have given this Blue Zone the highest concentration of male centenarians in the world. (Sheep herd...

Why People Are Swimming in Freezing Water

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 13:15:10 +0100

Forget dipping your toe in the deep end. In countries around the world, intrepid swimmers of all ages plunge into ice-cold waters for a thrill that can feel as sharp as daggers–and bragging rights that last all winter. Welcome to the fun and frigid world of cold-water swimming. The hobby is nothing new. It’s been around for centuries in chilly climes such as Russia and Finland, and people have been crossing the notoriously frosty, 21-mile-long English Channel without wet suits since at least the 1800s. The Coney Island Polar Bear Club hosted its first U.S. ocean dip in 1903. And while polar plunges have become relatively common, some of these swims are not for the faint of heart. Only 11 people in recorded history, for example, have completed the so-called Ice Zero: a mile-long...



Amish People Stay Healthy in Old Age. Here ’s Their Secret

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 13:15:10 +0100

Many people think of the Amish as living without. These devout communities, predominantly located in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana, go without cars, TVs, computers, phones or even the electricity needed to run so much of 21st century gadgetry. But what researchers who have studied them have found is what the Amish have a surplus of: good health in late life. The average American life expectancy is currently just under 79 years. Back in 1900, it was only 47, but for early–20th century Amish it was already greater than 70. Over the decades, most Americans have caught up in overall life expectancy, but the Amish still have a significant edge in late-life health, with lower rates of cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and more. So how do they do it? Start with lifestyle. Amish com...

Inside One Couple ’s Experimental Treatment to Battle Alzheimer’s Disease

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 13:15:10 +0100

JoAnn Wooding is staring intently at the clear liquid dripping from a dark brown IV bag into her husband Peter’s arm. “Please be the drug, please be the drug,” she says. Married for more than 50 years, the Woodings are among the more than 5 million Americans who are facing Alzheimer’s disease, one of the most devastating diagnoses today. But instead of accepting the slow descent into memory loss, confusion and dementia, Peter–who has the disease–could be among the first to successfully stop that decline from happening. Peter, 77, is one of the 2,700 people around the world who are expected to volunteer to test what researchers believe could be the first drug to halt Alzheimer’s. Two-thirds of the volunteers will receive the drug, and one-third will...



The Surprising Secrets to Living Longer — And Better

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 13:15:10 +0100

Old age demands to be taken very seriously–and it usually gets its way. It’s hard to be cavalier about a time of life defined by loss of vigor, increasing frailty, rising disease risk and falling cognitive faculties. Then there’s the unavoidable matter of the end of consciousness and the self–death, in other words–that’s drawing closer and closer. It’s the rare person who can confront the final decline with flippancy or ease. That, as it turns out, might be our first mistake. Humans are not alone in facing the ultimate reckoning, but we’re the only species–as far as we know–who spends its whole life knowing death is coming.

Species turnover promotes the importance of bee diversity for crop pollination at regional scales

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 00:00:00 +0100

Ecologists have shown through hundreds of experiments that ecological communities with more species produce higher levels of essential ecosystem functions such as biomass production, nutrient cycling, and pollination, but whether this finding holds in nature (that is, in large-scale and unmanipulated systems) is controversial. This knowledge gap is troubling because ecosystem services have been widely adopted as a justification for global biodiversity conservation. Here we show that, to provide crop pollination in natural systems, the number of bee species must increase by at least one order of magnitude compared with that in field experiments. This increase is driven by species turnover and its interaction with functional dominance, mechanisms that emerge only at large scales. Our results...



This Is the Link Between Processed Foods and Cancer

Wed, 14 Feb 2018 23:30:06 +0100

Processed snacks, drinks and desserts may be associated with a higher risk of cancer, according to a new study. The research, published Wednesday in The BMJ, focused on ultra-processed foods, which tend to be high in fat, saturated fat, sugar and salt. (Past research has found that Americans get 61% of their calories from highly processed foods.) In the new study, researchers found that, among almost 150,000 French adults, a 10% increase in the proportion of ultra-processed foods in a person’s diet was correlated with a 12% higher risk of cancer. The paper is the first to explore the link between cancer and ultra-processed foods — that is, industrial formulations that typically contain many ingredients, including some not found in the typical kitchen — says study author M...
