NEW YORK, Dec. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- The Universities of Sassari and Cagliari (Sardinia - Italy) in conjunction with a team of doctors from the United States, announced today the results of a six-year long research study confirming that Pecorino cheese contains high amounts of CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid), an Omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acid naturally found in certain food groups, and which shows bioactive properties for humans. The study, conducted in Sardinia, Italy from 2003 to 2009...

A team of French scientists say they have found the right dose of docosahexaenoic acid in omega-3 fish body oils to protect the heart of healthy men. The study, published in the Journal of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology, found a 200 mg dose of DHA per day is enough to affect biochemical markers that reliably predict cardiovascular problems, such as those related to aging, atherosclerosis and diabetes. Study co-author Michel Lagarde of the University of Lyon in...

Three studies provide no evidence that animal food consumption increases the risk of breast cancer, U.S. and European researchers said. In one study, 35 obese postmenopausal women with type 2 diabetes received conjugated linoleic acid supplements or a control supplement each for 36 weeks. In a second study, researchers examined the association between conjugated linoleic acid intake from natural sources and breast cancer incidence in a large cohort of initially cancer-free Swedish women for...

Breast cancer is the 7th leading cause of mortality in the United States and results in approximately 41,000 deaths each year. Although genetic factors are important, there is considerable evidence that breast cancer risk is related to modifiable lifestyle factors, such as physical activity, body weight, alcohol intake, and dietary choices. The September 2009 issue of The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reports the results of 3 human studies designed to better delineate the relation...

A study comparing how two common dietary oil supplements affect body composition suggests that both oils, by themselves, can lower body fat in obese postmenopausal women with Type 2 diabetes.The two oils compared were safflower oil, a common cooking oil, and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), a compound naturally found in some meat and dairy products that has been associated with weight loss in previous studies. Both are composed primarily of polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are considered...

A new study suggests that eating a handful of walnuts a day could significantly reduce a woman's risk of developing breast cancer. In lab tests performed on mice that had been bred to develop breast cancer, scientists at Marshall University School of Medicine in Huntington, West Virginia observed that animals fed the equivalent of a handful of walnuts a day were at a significantly lower risk of developing the disease. "Walnuts are better than cookies, French fries or potato chips when you...

Research shows preterm infant girls who received a high intake of dietary docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), an omega-3 fatty acid, had improvements in their neurodevelopment. Infants who receive an inadequate supply of nutrients during the newborn period are at risk for developmental disorders. DHA deficiency has been shown to result in poor brain development. In order to measure the effect of DHA on infants, 657 infants were enrolled and randomized to receive doses of high-DHA (about 1 percent...

Intake of certain fatty acid appears to improve neurodevelopment for preterm girls, but not boys, researchers in Australia said. The study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, found the preterm infant girls who received a high amount of dietary docosahexaenoic acid -- an omega-3 fatty acid -- had higher measures of neurodevelopment than preterm girls who received a standard amount of DHA, but this effect was not seen among preterm boys.
