Soda warning? New study supports link between diabetes, high-fructose corn syrup
Researchers have found new evidence that soft drinks sweetened with high-fructose corn syrup may contribute to the development of diabetes, particularly in children. Drinks containing the syrup had high levels of reactive compounds that have been shown by others to have the potential to trigger cell and tissue damage that could cause the diabetes, a growing epidemic. The study will be presented in August at the American Chemical Society national meeting in Boston. (2007-08-23)

Audience pick: Older violin, sweeter music?
Call it a reality concert. There's a highfalutin $4 million 1720 Rochester Stradivarius violin that some would tell you can not be beat. Then there's an infant instrument. Crafted in six weeks this year, its maker says the newbie violin will play fairly well against themaster. You decide. Age-old art and modern science will square off in a free public concert that also will mark the retirement of Texas A&M University researcher Dr. Joseph Nagyvary. (2003-08-26)

Infant formula adulteration with melamine underscores need for better detection methods
Following the recent adulteration of infant formula and other milk products with the industrial chemical melamine, the US Pharmacopeial Convention is holding an international workshop this week to explore better ways to detect deliberately falsified protein content in food ingredients. The presence of false protein can lead to illness and death, as with thousands of Chinese children in the tragic melamine adulteration of infant formula this year. (2009-06-17)

Caloric sweetener use grows worldwide; soft drinks are chief culprit, study shows
Use of caloric sweeteners, including sugar, has grown markedly around the world over the past 40 years, according to a new University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill study. In the United States, UNC scientists found increasing consumption of beverages, including soft drinks and sugared fruit drinks, was a major contributor to the burgeoning use of such sweeteners, which nutritionists believe contribute to unhealthy obesity.

Controlling ragweed pollen in Detroit: A no-mow solution for Motown?
When it comes to controlling hay fever-triggering ragweed plants on Detroit vacant lots, occasional mowing is worse than no mowing at all, and promoting reforestation might be the best solution. (2014-06-16)

Huge market for forest moss raises concerns
A huge, largely underground industry has been built on the moss that drapes some forest trees, raising ecological concerns, questions about export of potentially invasive species, and other issues that have scientists, land managers and businesses unsure about how to monitor, regulate or control this market amid so many uncertainties. (2004-08-03)

Transplanting fat may be effective treatment for metabolic disease
Transplanting fat may treat such inherited metabolic diseases as maple syrup urine disease by helping the body process the essential amino acids that these patients cannot, according to Penn State College of Medicine researchers. (2013-09-11)

Why Is Africa So High?
Scientists at the Carnegie Institution report that a large, hot upwelling originating at the core-mantle boundary is responsible for the anomalously high elevation of southern Africa--the so-called African Superswell. (1998-09-16)

Global warming could significantly impact US wine and corn production, Stanford scientists say

$3.2 million to develop battery management system for electric-car batteries
The US Department of Energy announced Aug. 2 that a team of engineers at Washington University in St. Louis will receive $2 million to design a battery management system for lithium-ion batteries that will guarantee their longevity, safety and performance. (2012-08-03)

Modern genetics answers age-old question on Garrod's fourth inborn error of metabolism
Fifty years after participating in studies of pentosuria, an inherited disorder once mistaken for diabetes, 15 families again welcomed medical geneticists into their lives. Their willingness to have their DNA analyzed with genomics technologies has solved a 100-year mystery. The findings may help elucidate when and how human mutations appear and are carried over generations and with migration of humans. Pentosuria occurs almost exclusively in Ashkenazi Jews. The findings suggest it occurs in about 1 in 3,330 people of this ancestry. (2011-10-31)

Cells in retina found to behave like soap bubbles
Bubbles always try to minimize their surface area, even when clustered together. Now two Northwestern University scientists have demonstrated that the tendency to minimize surface area extends to living things as well. In a paper published Oct. 7 in Nature, they show that cells within the retina take on shapes and pack together like soap bubbles. Gaining insight into such patterns can help researchers understand the interplay between genetics and physics in cell formation. (2004-10-11)

Study shows flavanol antioxidant content of US chocolate and cocoa-containing products
This study confirms that the antioxidants and other plant-based nutrients in chocolate and cocoa products are highly associated with the amount of nonfat cocoa-derived ingredients in the product. The nonfat cocoa components are generally the brown cocoa powder content of the products. The study expands on previously published results. (2009-11-24)

Researchers link obesity and the body's production of fructose
In the study published in the Sept. 10 edition of Nature Communications, a team led by researchers at the CU School of Medicine reports that fatty liver and insulin resistance may result from fructose produced in the liver from non-fructose containing carbohydrates. (2013-09-10)

Hebrew University develops novel approach for treating mitochondrial disorders

Study warns against global use of old asthma medicines for kids' coughs
An asthma medicine widely used around the world to stop children's coughs has no provable benefit for that purpose and may cause harm, a new review of existing studies reports. The class of drugs known as methylxanthines is no longer used to treat childhood asthma in Western countries, having been replaced by corticosteroids. But the drugs remain the leading therapy for asthma in the developing world, where they are also used to cure routine coughing in children. (2005-07-19)
