Low Intensity Exercise Better For The Body Than High Intensity Workouts
2013-02-15 15:59:58

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online New research published in the journal PLoS ONE says low intensity exercises may be more beneficial to you than those short, intense workouts. Researchers found, after studying 18 normal-weight 19- to 24-year-old participants, that long periods of low intensity exercise may help to improve insulin and lipid levels more than those short bursts of intense activity exercises. These longer exercises can include standing and walking...

Study of tiny roundworms provides clue to observed human health benefits A search for genes that change their levels of expression in response to nutrient deprivation has uncovered potential clues to the mechanism underlying the health benefits of omega fatty acids. In the Feb. 15 issue of Genes & Development, Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) researchers describe finding that feeding omega-6 fatty acids to C. elegans roundworms or adding them to cultured human cells activates a...

Adds to scientific evidence that the sweeteners are metabolically equivalent A study published today in the Journal of Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism presented compelling data showing the consumption of both high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) and sucrose (table sugar) at levels consistent with average daily consumption do not increase liver fat in humans, a leading cause of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). The findings also add to an already well-established body of...

Binge Drinking Raises Risk Of Developing  Type 2 Diabetes
2013-01-31 09:06:00

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers from the Metabolism Institute at Mount Sinai Hospital´s Icahn School of Medicine led a new animal study showing that binge drinking causes insulin resistance which, in turn, increases the risk of type 2 diabetes. The study, published in the journal Science Translational Medicine, also discovered that alcohol disrupts insulin-receptor signaling by causing inflammation in the hypothalamus. "Insulin resistance has...

When You Eat As Important As What

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Researchers wrote recently in the International Journal of Obesity timing is a necessary factor when considering a weight-loss plan. Most weight-loss plans essentially come down to just calorie counting and exercising. However, the latest research shows timing should be part of that consideration. "This is the first large-scale prospective study to demonstrate that the timing of meals predicts weight-loss effectiveness,"...

Mice with mitochondrial mutation live longer, have less fat If findings of a new study in mice are any indication, it might be possible to fine-tune cellular powerhouses called mitochondria, tweaking one aspect to increase insulin sensitivity, reduce body and fat mass, and even extend life. Exploiting this target could one day lead to novel treatments for type 2 diabetes – an endocrine system disease that affects 8 percent of the U.S. population. The research also points to promising...

University of Florida researchers and colleagues have identified a protein that, when absent, helps the body burn fat and prevents insulin resistance and obesity. The findings from the National Institutes of Health-funded study were published online ahead of print Sunday, Jan. 6, in the journal Nature Medicine. The discovery could aid development of drugs that not only prevent obesity, but also spur weight loss in people who are already overweight, said Stephen Hsu, M.D., Ph.D., one of...
