A new study by Newcastle University proves that organic farmers who let their cows graze as nature intended are producing better quality milk.The Nafferton Ecological Farming Group study found that grazing cows on organic farms in the UK produce milk which contains significantly higher beneficial fatty acids, antioxidants and vitamins than their conventional "Ëœhigh input' counterparts.During the summer months, one of the beneficial fats in particular "“ conjugated linoleic...

By Martha Kerr LOS ANGELES (Reuters Health) - A study presented here at Digestive Disease Week 2006 shows that conjugated linoleic acid supplements induce a change in body fat distribution, with the greatest fat reductions occurring in the abdomen and legs. Meanwhile, body weight and body mass index are essentially unaffected. Conjugated linoleic acid is found in fats from ruminant animals, such as cows or sheep, and from dairy products, Dr. Alexandra Einerhand of the Lipid Nutrition Center...

By Will Boggs, MD NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - People who have high levels of high-fat dairy foods and conjugated linoleic acid, a component of dairy foods, in their diet may have a reduced risk of colorectal cancer, according to a report in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. "High-fat dairy, and not only low-fat dairy, may be beneficial," Dr. Susanna C. Larsson from Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, told Reuters Health. Larsson and colleagues examined the association between long-term...

"It's clear from previous research that conjugated linoleic acid, or CLA, prevents inflammatory damage resulting from immune response," says Mark Cook, a professor of animal science in...

Sped development of tumors in mice exposed to UV light HealthDayNews -- Chronic stress may increase the risk of skin cancer in those at high risk for the disease, according to a study by researchers at Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center. The study found that mice exposed to stress and to cancer-causing ultraviolet (UV) light developed skin cancer in less than half the time as mice that weren't stressed. The research appears in the December issue of the Journal of the American Academy of...

ABSTRACT We demonstrated previously that dietary calcium suppression of calcitriol reduces adipocyte Ca^sup 2+^, suppresses lipogenesis, and increases lipid utilization during energy restriction. Notably, dairy calcium sources exert markedly greater effects. To determine the effects of dietary calcium and dairy products on energy partitioning during subsequent refeeding, we induced obesity in aP2- agouti transgenic mice with a high-fat/high-sucrose diet, then restricted energy intake from a...
