A new study says that ten minutes of brisk exercise triggers metabolic changes that last for at least one hour, and the more fit you are, the more benefits you just might be getting. Everyone knows that exercise and healthy eating are important for protection against heart disease, diabetes, and other conditions. But what exactly causes the improvement to health from working up a sweat or from eating more healthily? Also, are some people more biologically predisposed to get more benefits...

Scientists have developed a new computational model to uncover gene regulation, the key to how our body develops "“ and how it can go wrong. The researchers, from The University of Manchester (UK), Aalto University (Finland) and the European Molecular Biology Laboratory Heidelberg (Germany), say the new method identifies targets of regulator genes. The human genome contains instructions for making all the cells in our body. An individual cell's make up (e.g. muscle or blood) depends on...

Munich-area study pioneers phenotyping of the human 'metabolome' The old excuse, "I am only overweight because of my genes," is suddenly gaining credibility as researchers uncover ever more evidence that the way our bodies digest and process nutrients in the food we eat is different for every person. The budding discipline of metabolomics strives to investigate these differences in a scientific manner. Nutrition scientists and food chemists at the Technische Universitaet Muenchen are on the...
