Alcohol laws have a preventive effect on young men
Young men are at risk from alcohol consumption. Regulations such as the minimum legal drinking age can protect them. As a national study headed by UZH scientists reveals: The more legal measures for alcohol prevention are enforced in a canton, the less young men drink excessively. However, this is not effective for high-risk consumers such as young men with a tendency towards sensation seeking or antisocial behavior. (2015-07-29)

Improving nutrition and well-being in old age
For many different reasons, older people often struggle to eat enough. Due to lack of nutrition, their muscle mass decreases, along with their strength and fitness. In an effort to improve nutrition for elderly people, researchers at the Institute for Biomedicine of Aging at Friedrich-Alexander-Universit├Ąt of Erlangen-Nuremberg are involved in developing foods that are specially designed to meet their needs and carrying out research on the acceptance and effects of these foods. (2015-07-17)

The taxing toll of sugar on the nation's health
In a week when the British Medical Association has called for a sugar tax of 20 per cent to be introduced to help combat the nation's obesity epidemic, and advisors to the Government have suggested that UK consumers should cut their sugar intake by half, Dr. Gail Rees, Associate Professor in Human Nutrition at Plymouth University School of Biomedical and Healthcare Sciences, argues that this is a sensible suggestion because obesity -- directly and indirectly -- is a concern for us all (2015-07-17)

Polar bear metabolism less resilient to summer ice melt than expected

Taxing the dose of calories in sugary drinks could help reduce obesity
A tax on sugary drinks that depends on the number of calories or amount of sugar per liter could help fight obesity, suggests new research published in Social Science & Medicine. While a few countries are already trialing a tax on sugary drinks, taxing the dose would encourage drinks companies to offer low-calorie alternatives. (2015-07-16)

Tradable Energy Quotas offer fair and effective route to low carbon society
To achieve public support for a transformation to a low carbon society, politicians would be advised to implement a quantity-based energy quota system, with a fixed and decreasing cap on total use, rather than relying on carbon pricing and taxation mechanisms, according to a new study. (2015-07-16)

Baby's first stool can alert doctors to future cognitive issues, new CWRU study finds
A newborn's first stool can signal the child may struggle with persistent cognitive problems, according to Case Western Reserve University Project Newborn researchers. In particular, high levels of fatty acid ethyl esters found in the meconium (a newborn's first stool) from a mother's alcohol use during pregnancy can alert doctors that a child is at risk for problems with intelligence and reasoning. (2015-07-13)

Researchers at Virginia Tech have developed a new scoring method for assessing beverage intake, the Healthy Beverage Index (HBI). In a report published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics they describe how this tool can be used to more accurately evaluate dietary consumption of all types of fluids. They found that higher HBI scores were associated with more favorable lipid profiles, decreased risk of hypertension; and, among men, better C-reactive protein levels. (2015-07-09)

Overhydration potentially deadly for athletes, experts warn

Marijuana users substitute alcohol at 21
A recent study looked at marijuana and alcohol use in people between the ages of 18 and 24. It's probably not surprising that the results show a drastic increase in alcohol consumption in people just over 21; after all, that's the minimum legal age to drink. What University of Illinois economist Ben Crost found remarkable is that, at the same age, there was an equally dramatic drop in marijuana use. (2015-07-07)

Fructose not only results in a lower level of satiety, it also stimulates the reward system in the brain to a lesser degree than glucose. This may cause excessive consumption accompanied by effects that are a risk to health, report researchers from the University of Basel in a study published in the scientific journal PLOS ONE. Various diseases have been attributed to industrial fructose in sugary drinks and ready meals. (2015-06-25)
