Connie K. Ho for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Before you pick up a piece of food high in fatty acid, you might want to think twice. A new study from researchers at the University of California, Davis (UC Davis) showed that the risk of breast cancer could be increased by certain diet and metabolic syndrome factors found earlier in life. In particular, the scientists looked at the effects of a particular form of fatty acid. The findings, featured in the early edition of the...

Chemists at UC San Diego have developed a method that for the first time provides scientists the ability to attach chemical probes onto proteins and subsequently remove them in a repeatable cycle. Their achievement, detailed in a paper that appears online this week in the journal Nature Methods, will allow researchers to better understand the biochemistry of naturally formed proteins in order to create better antibiotics, anti-cancer drugs, biofuels, food crops and other natural products....

Researchers explain 'hydration repulsion' between biomembranes Biomembranes enclose biological cells like a skin. They also surround organelles that carry out important functions in metabolism and cell division. Scientists have long known in principle how biomembranes are built up, and also that water molecules play a role in maintaining the optimal distance between neighboring membranes–otherwise they could not fulfill their vital functions. Now, with the help of computer...

A recent independent study on US military personal demonstrated a strong association between the levels of omega-3s, such as found in Omega XL, and cognitive flexibility and executive function. Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) August 27, 2012 The US Military has a strong interest in the potential health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids, such as found in Omega XL, for service members, particularly for the potential cognitive effects for soldiers on active duty. A recent study published in the...

Approximately 4 million Americans are afflicted with Alzheimer´s disease with approximately another 4.8 million sufferers in Europe, notes Dr. J G Moellendorf, DC, ND, LCP. After the age of 65, the incidence of Alzheimer´s doubles every 5 years. Most current forms of treatment have appeared hopeless in stemming this tide. While there are many genetic and environmental risk factors leading to Alzheimer´s, early recognition and natural preventative measures have been shown to...

Pioneering mass spectrometry methods developed at the U.S. Department of Energy´s (DOE´s) Ames Laboratory are helping plant biologists get their first glimpses of never-before-seen plant tissue structures. The new method opens up new realms of study, ones that might have long-ranging implications for biofuels research and crop genetics. “The data we´re seeing are unprecedented,” said Basil Nikolau, the Ames Laboratory faculty scientist heading up the project,...

The findings of a recent epidemiological study suggested that omega-3 fatty acids, such as found in Omega XL®, blunted cardiac responses to air pollution exposure. Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) August 13, 2012 It is well documented that exposure to particulate matter in the air can increase cardiovascular disease and related deaths. Just in California, fine particulate air pollution is estimated to cause 9,000 premature deaths per year. In the first study of its kind, omega-3 fatty...
