Australian researchers in a new study found that kids who use low-fat choices in place of regular dairy products consume less saturated fat but do not seem to lose weight. They found that neither weight nor body mass index (BMI) had noticeably changed after six months of being on low-fat and reduced-fat dairy products. Researchers Gilly Hendrie and Rebecca Golley of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) found that instead of losing weight, kids who reduced...

NEW YORK, April 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- When purchasing food and beverages, U.S. adults are aware of basic nutritional facts of these products and how to manage their weight. In addition, Americans think that locally sourced produce is an important aspect of food choice. At first glance, the good news is that U.S. adults show a high level of health-consciousness, but whether or not awareness translates into behavior is still in question. (Logo:...

Eating more n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, commonly known as omega-3 fatty acids, may help carriers of a genetic variant on the perilipin 4 (PLIN4) gene locus lose weight more efficiently. Based on this observation, researchers at the Jean Mayer Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging (USDA HNRCA) at Tufts University identified a microRNA (miRNA) which may elucidate the underlying biological mechanism. Led by Jose M. Ordovas, PhD, director of the Nutrition and Genomics Laboratory at the...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- Dietary and lifestyle changes significantly reduce elevated triglycerides (a type of blood fat), which are associated with heart, blood vessel and other diseases, according to an American Heart Association scientific statement. Changes such as substituting healthy, unsaturated dietary fats for saturated ones, engaging in physical activity and losing excess weight can decrease triglycerides by 20-percent to 50-percent, according to the statement's authors. "The good news...

Animal cell membranes are a bilayer of phospholipids (charged fat molecules) made up to various degrees of fatty acids that must be acquired from the diet. The essential polyunsaturated fatty acids have been shown to be important in resistance to a variety of diseases and in coping with changes in body temperature. It is generally believed that mammals are unable to alter the proportions of essential fatty acids in their cell membranes except by changing their diets. Furthermore, mammals are...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- A new study conducted by researchers at the University of Cincinnati (UC) illustrates that short-term, high-fat "splurges" within one's diet could actually bring about cardioprotective properties during a heart attack. Lauren Haar, a doctoral student in the Systems Biology and Physiology Graduate Program, discovered that short-term, high-fat feeding in animal models led to cardioprotection against myocardial infarction (MI or heart attack) and resulted in less cardiac...

Fast food may not be the best choice at mealtime, but a new University of Guelph study has found that washing your meal down with coffee may be even worse. According to lead researcher Marie-Soleil Beaudoin, the caffeine from coffee actually doubles the elevation in blood sugar levels triggered by eating fatty foods, raising the levels to those similar in people who are at risk for diabetes. "The results tell us that saturated fat interferes with the body's ability to clear sugars from the...

FRESNO, Calif., Feb. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Newly released research from Penn State University highlights phytosterols, found in pistachios, may improve cholesterol, a factor in cardiovascular health. "We already know that pistachios are a naturally cholesterol-free food, but this new study suggests that phytosterols, or plant sterols, in pistachios may help to reduce the absorption of cholesterol," said Constance Geiger, PhD, RD, CD and nutrition expert for the Western Pistachio...
