High cholesterol intake and eggs do not increase risk of memory disorders
A new study from the University of Eastern Finland shows that a relatively high intake of dietary cholesterol, or eating one egg every day, are not associated with an elevated risk of dementia or Alzheimer's disease.

The findings were published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. (2017-01-09)

Mediterranean diet may have lasting effects on brain health
A new study shows that older people who followed a Mediterranean diet retained more brain volume over a three-year period than those who did not follow the diet as closely. The study is published in the Jan. 4, 2017, online issue of Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology. But contrary to earlier studies, eating more fish and less meat was not related to changes in the brain. (2017-01-04)

Improving health should be the focus of commercial diet programs, not just losing weight
If losing weight is on your list of New Year resolutions, be sure to include both diet and exercise. New research published today in Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism evaluated commercial weight loss programs by comparing those that formally include exercise with those that merely advocate for exercise to determine weight loss results and reductions in risk factors associated with heart disease and other health issues.

Jawing away: Bahama pupfish study identifies candidate genes driving food-niches
Scientists Joseph McGirr and Christopher Martin have studied three closely related pupfish species peacefully co-existing because each, through subtle jaw size differences, has rapidly carved out its own food niche within the last 10,000 years. They have matched DNA changes with differences in jaw size to uncover candidate genes responsible, along with evidence supporting the role of large-effect alleles in crossing larger fitness valleys. More large-effect alleles were required to evolve large jaws than small jaws. (2016-12-27)

(2016-12-07)

Foraging differences let closely related seabirds coexist
How do seabirds share habitat when food is limited? In the case of frigatebirds, size differences drive them to seek different prey. A study in The Auk: Ornithological Advances uses new technology to explore how closely related Great and Lesser frigatebirds manage to coexist at shared breeding colonies where the need to stick close to their nests prevents them from traveling far in search of food. (2016-12-07)

DNA analysis of bluebird feces reveals benefits for vineyards
Do bluebirds nesting in California's vineyards help grape growers by eating agricultural pests, or hurt them by eating insects that are beneficial?

New understanding of brain plasticity may lead to novel treatment approaches
A growing understanding of the highly 'plastic,' changeable nature of the brain -- from the level of DNA, proteins, neuronal connections and networks, up to communication across brain regions -- is driving the development of new therapeutic approaches to treat chronic pain, stroke, Parkinson's disease, and a variety of other disorders described in an article in Alternative and Complementary Therapies.

A possible explanation for recurring breast cancer
In October, we mourned those who died of breast cancer and celebrated all of the women (and men) who have survived. What many of those survivors worry about, though, is that their breast cancer may come back. It has puzzled scientists and health care providers that cancer can suddenly reappear, often with a vengeance, months or years after treatment is over. (2016-11-15)

Red is good -- the brain uses color to help us choose what to eat
Red means: 'green light, go for it!' Green means: 'hmm, better not!' Like an upside down traffic light in our brain, color helps us decide whether or not to eat something. This, according to a study at the International School for Advanced Studies in Trieste and recently published in the journal Scientific Reports stating that vision is the main sense we use to guide us in food choices. To evaluate calorie intake, we rely on a 'color code.' (2016-11-14)

Underwater video reveals culprits behind disappearance of NSW kelp forests
Seaweed-eating fish are becoming increasingly voracious as the ocean warms due to climate change and are responsible for the recent destruction of kelp forests off the coast of NSW in eastern Australia, research shows. The study includes an analysis of underwater video covering a 10-year period between 2002 and 2012 during which the water warmed by 0.6 degrees. (2016-11-14)

Why do seabirds eat plastic? The answer stinks
We know plastic in the ocean is a problem. But why do seabirds eat marine plastic in the first place? A UC Davis study found that marine plastic debris emits the scent of a sulfurous compound that some seabirds have relied upon for thousands of years to tell them where to find food. This olfactory cue essentially tricks the birds into confusing marine plastic with food.

According to a new study in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, American children are consuming sodium at levels that far exceed the daily recommended limit. Taste preferences for high sodium foods, formed as children, follow individuals into adulthood and put them at increased risk for developing cardiovascular problems later in life. (2016-11-03)
