Study in Annals of Internal Medicine led by Simmons College School of Health Sciences BOSTON, Sept. 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Those who adhered to a diet low in carbohydrates but rich in animal-based fats and proteins increased their risk of death - especially by cancer, according to a study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, led by Simmons College nutrition professor Teresa Fung, Sc. D. This study is the first of its kind to demonstrate the link between different types of...

Scientists some years back found ways to automate the production of DNA and proteins, making studies of these essential components of life far easier. With complex carbohydrates, it's been a different story. Until now, the construction of so-called "libraries" of carbohydrate molecules for biological study has been slow and tedious. In what may change all that, a team of scientists from the University of Georgia has created a method for the rapid chemical synthesis of complex carbohydrates,...

Evidence from observational studies indicates that diets rich in whole grain reduce risk of obesity and other diseases related to the metabolic syndrome e.g. type 2 diabetes and cardio-vascular disease. The mechanisms involved are only partially elucidated. Work within HEALTHGRAIN has revealed novel insights regarding some potential mechanisms. Barley products rich in indigestible carbohydrates (dietary fibre and resistant starch), facilitated glycaemic regulation through a mechanism...

According to a study released on Monday, women who consume excess high-carbohydrate foods increase their chance of heart disease. The study showed an increased incidence of coronary disease in women whose diets are rich in foods containing high glycemic content, such as white bread, sweets and some breakfast cereals. Men were not as likely to be affected by those foods as women. The study noted that all high-carb diets increase levels of blood glucose and harmful fats known as...

It's time to set the record straight. The only reliable way to lose weight is to eat less or exercise more. Preferably both. So why bother to state the obvious? Because a body of scientific literature has arisen over recent years, suggesting that fat oxidation "“ burning the fats we eat as opposed to the carbohydrates "“ is enough to promote fat loss. It isn't. Sydney scientists have demonstrated that mice genetically altered to burn fats in preference to carbohydrates, will...

Scientists at the University of York have discovered how certain bacteria such as Escherichia coli have evolved to capture rare sugars from their environment giving them an evolutionary advantage in naturally competitive environments like the human gut. Microbes are well-known for their ability to grow in demanding and nutritionally poor environments, which has allowed them to colonize some of the most remote places on the planet. Bacteria living in theoretically nutrient-rich environments...

A spoonful of herbicide helps the sugar break down in a most delightful way. Researchers at Brigham Young University have developed a fuel cell "“ basically a battery with a gas tank "“ that harvests electricity from glucose and other sugars known as carbohydrates. The human body's preferred energy source could someday power our gadgets, cars or homes. "Carbohydrates are very energy rich," said BYU chemistry professor Gerald Watt. "What we needed was a catalyst that would extract...

A fundamental question about how sugar units are strung together into long carbohydrate chains has also pinpointed a promising way to target new medicines against tuberculosis. Working with components of the tuberculosis bacterium, researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison identified an unusual process by which the pathogen builds an important structural carbohydrate. In addition to its implications for human health, the mechanism offers insight into a widespread but poorly...
