Clinics cut pregnancy risks for obese women
Specialist antenatal clinics for severely obese mums-to-be can help cut rates of pregnancy complications, research has found. Women who received the specialist care were eight times less likely to have a stillbirth and health experts say the clinic helps them to spot signs of complications sooner. (2017-06-22)

Cow herd behavior is fodder for complex systems analysis
With closer inspection, researchers have recognized that what appears to be a randomly dispersed herd peacefully eating grass is in fact a complex system of individuals in a group facing differing tensions. A team of mathematicians and a biologist has now built a mathematical model that incorporates a cost function to behavior in such a herd to understand the dynamics of such systems. (2017-06-20)

Scientists reveal a key link between brain circuits governing hunger and cravings
By developing a new approach to imaging and manipulating particular groups of neurons in the mouse brain, scientists at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) have identified a pathway by which neurons that drive hunger influence distant neurons involved in the decision of whether or not to react to food-related cues. Their findings could open the door to targeted therapies that dampen food cue-evoked cravings in people with obesity. The research was published online today in the journal Nature. (2017-06-14)

Study provides further support for genetic factors underlying addictions
Impairment of a particular gene raises increases susceptibility to opioid addiction liability as well as vulnerability to binge eating according to a new study. Dysfunction of the gene, casein kinase1-epsilon (CSNK1E), increases opioid's euphoric response and produces a marked increase in sensitivity to binge eating in a female experimental model but not in the male.

Does labeling carrots as 'twisted citrus-glazed carrots' or green beans as 'sweet sizzilin' green beans and crispy shallots' make them more enticing and increase vegetable consumption? (2017-06-12)

Lost your appetite? Try inviting yourself to dinner
Researchers at Nagoya University discovered that when study participants ate alone, the food tasted better and they ate more if they could see themselves reflected in a mirror. This was true of both elderly and young adult participants. Perhaps surprisingly, a similar increase in the appeal of food was seen among elderly participants when the mirror was replaced with a photo. (2017-06-08)

Bread and health: A personal matter
In the past few decades, since white bread has acquired a bad name, bakeries have been going out of their way to produce high-quality whole grain breads. But a new study conducted at the Weizmann Institute of Science and published recently in Cell Metabolism reveals that these 'wholesome' choices are not necessarily the healthiest for everyone. (2017-06-07)

Herbs, spices on vegetables may increase their appeal to men, young adults
Seasonings may entice adults -- especially men and people under age 50 -- who don't generally eat vegetables at lunchtime into increasing their vegetable intake, suggests a new study led by Joanna Manero, a graduate student in food science and human nutrition at the University of Illinois. (2017-06-02)

Timing meals later at night can cause weight gain and impair fat metabolism
New findings suggest eating late at night could be more dangerous than you think. Compared to eating earlier in the day, prolonged delayed eating can increase weight, insulin and cholesterol levels, and negatively affect fat metabolism, and hormonal markers implicated in heart disease, diabetes and other health problems, according to results from researchers at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. (2017-06-02)

In contrast to ruminants, horses chew their food only once -- but with the same regu-lar, rhythmic movements as cows, who ruminate their food after eating, as demon-strated by researchers at the University of Zurich and the ETH Zurich. (2017-05-31)

Take control to become a better parent
A new study, published in Frontiers in Psychology, found that a parent's outlook on life can have a profound influence on the behavior of their child. (2017-05-31)

Prenatal stress predisposes female mice to binge eating
Stress changes our eating habits, but the mechanism may not be purely psychological, research in mice suggests. A study in Cell Metabolism found that stressed mouse mothers were more likely to give birth to pups that would go on to exhibit binge-eating-like behavior later in life. The pups from stressed mothers shared epigenetic tags on their DNA, but these markers only made a difference when the researchers put the young offspring into a stressful situation. (2017-05-30)

A flip switch for binge-eating?
Researchers have identified a subgroup of neurons in the mouse brain that, upon activation, immediately prompt binge-like eating. (2017-05-25)

Eating chocolate may decrease risk of irregular heartbeat
Consuming moderate amounts of chocolate was associated with significantly lower risk of being diagnosed with atrial fibrillation (AF)--a common and dangerous type of irregular heartbeat--in a large study of men and women in Denmark led by researchers at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and in Denmark. (2017-05-23)

Research suggests eating beans instead of beef would sharply reduce greenhouse gasses
If Americans would eat beans instead of beef, the United States would immediately realize approximately 50 to 75 percent of its GHG reduction targets for the year 2020. (2017-05-22)

Disrupted fat breakdown in the brain makes mice dumb
A study led by the University of Bonn opens a new perspective with regard to the development of dementia. The scientists blocked the breakdown of a certain fat molecule in the mouse brain. As a result the animals exhibited learning and memory problems. Also the quantity of Alzheimer-specific proteins in their brains increased significantly. The researchers now have a clue as to why the mice become dumb. The results are published in the journal 'Autophagy'. (2017-05-19)

Keeping young women's weight gain to less than 800g/year could help prevent progression from healthy weight to overweight and obesity
New research presented at this year's European Congress on Obesity (ECO) in Porto, Portugal (May 17-20) shows that rates of weight gain are established by the time women are 18-23 years old. Measuring rates of weight gain at this age could identify women who are likely to become overweight or obese by the time they are 40. Furthermore, women who are divorced, separated or widowed, and those who smoke >10/day are most at risk of becoming overweight or obese. (2017-05-18)

Eating a diet rich in fruit and vegetables could cut obesity risk

Studies link healthy brain aging to omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in the blood
Two new studies link patterns of polyunsaturated fatty acids in the blood to the integrity of brain structures and cognitive abilities that are known to decline early in aging. The studies add to the evidence that dietary intake of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids can promote healthy aging, the researchers said. Further research is needed to test this hypothesis, they said. (2017-05-18)

(2017-05-16)

Study beefs up support for brain cells that control protein hunger
Have you ever found yourself craving a steak or a burger? The brain controls our feelings of hunger and also determines the types of nutrients we should be seeking out. Not much is understood about the brain's regulation of nutrient-specific hunger, but in a new study published in Science, researchers identified the brain cells in fruit flies that regulate protein hunger and were able to control those cells, affecting what the animals ate. (2017-05-10)
