How Probiotic Bacteria Protect Against Inflammatory Bowel Diseases



  ScienceDaily (Apr. 26, 2012) -- Some lactic acid bacteria can alleviate inflammation and therefore prevent intestinal disorders. Scientists have now decoded the biochemical mechanism that lies behind the protective effect of the bacteria. In experiments with mice, the researchers succeeded in demonstrating that lactocepin -- an enzyme produced by certain lactic acid bacteria -- selectively degrades inflammatory mediators in diseased tissue. This new evidence might lead to new approaches for the treatment of...

Building Muscle Without Heavy Weights



  ScienceDaily (Apr. 26, 2012) -- Weight training at a lower intensity but with more repetitions may be as effective for building muscle as lifting heavy weights says a new opinion piece in Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism.   The perspective provided in this review highlights that other resistance protocols, beyond the often discussed high-intensity training, can be effective in stimulating a muscle building response that may translate into bigger muscles after resistance training,"...

Breastfeeding Linked to Healthy Infant Gut



 Bacterial Colonization Leads to Changes in the Infant's Expression of Genes ScienceDaily (Apr. 29, 2012) -- Early colonization of the gut by microbes in infants is critical for development of their intestinal tract and in immune development. A new study, published in BioMed Central's open access journal Genome Biology, shows that differences in bacterial colonization of formula-fed and breast-fed babies leads to changes in the infant's expression of genes involved in the immune system, and...

90% of heart attacks have these common factors



Researchers found that nine easily measured and potentially modifiable risk factors account for more than 90 percent of the risk of initial heart attack. They include: hypertension, diabetes, smoking, abnormal blood cholesterol levels, abdominal obesity, lack of physical activity, low daily fruit and vegetable intake, drinking too much alcohol, and psychosocial factors such as emotional stress and depression. Potentially modifiable is an understatement, these risk factors are most certainly modifiable as we take steps...

Daily Physical Activity May Reduce Alzheimer's Disease Risk at Any Age



  ScienceDaily (Apr. 18, 2012) -- Daily physical activity may reduce the risk of Alzheimer's disease and cognitive decline, even in people over the age of 80, according to a new study by neurological researchers from Rush University Medical Center that will be published in the online issue of Neurology, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology on April 18. The results of our study indicate that all physical activities including exercise...

Avocado Oil: The 'olive Oil of the Americas'?



  ScienceDaily (Apr. 22, 2012) -- Researchers have found that consuming fruit bolsters cells' power centers against harmful free radicals. Atmospheric oxygen facilitated the evolution and complexity of terrestrial organisms, including human beings, because it allowed nutrients to be used more efficiently by those organisms, which in turn were able to generate more energy. However, as we find out more about how oxygen molecules work inside the body, more attention is being paid to...

Soy Protein Alleviates Symptoms of Fatty Liver Disease, Study Suggests ScienceDaily (Apr. 22, 2012) -- University of Illinois researchers have shown how soy protein could significantly reduce fat accumulation and triglycerides in the livers of obese patients by partially restoring the function of a key signaling pathway in the organ. Hong Chen, an assistant professor of food science and human nutrition at the University of Illinois, presented her team's findings on April 22, at...

Thyme May Be Better for Acne Than Prescription Creams



  ScienceDaily (Mar. 27, 2012) -- Herbal preparations of thyme could be more effective at treating skin acne than prescription creams, according to research recently presented at the Society for General Microbiology's Spring Conference in Dublin. Further clinical testing could lead to an effective, gentler treatment for the skin condition. Researchers from Leeds Metropolitan University tested the effect of thyme, marigold and myrrh tinctures on Propionibacterium acnes -- the bacterium that causes acne by...
