Antioxidants in Midwestern black raspberries influenced by production site
Black raspberries have been studied for decades by scientists and medical researchers interested in the fruits' apparent ability to limit the onset or severity of degenerative diseases, including cancer. The prospective health benefits of black raspberries and other antioxidant-rich produce has led to increased consumer awareness and demand for fresh, locally produced fruit. This lead researchers to investigate whether antioxidant levels are influenced by where black raspberries are grown. (2009-02-26)

More evidence shows natural plant compound may reduce mental effects of aging
Salk scientists find benefits of antioxidant fisetin in mouse model of premature aging, Alzheimer's disease. (2017-07-10)

Going wild could improve winged workforce
Every spring in the United States, bees pollinate crops valued at about $14 billion. A Michigan State University professor and a team of scientists are using a five-year, $8.6 million grant from the United States Department of Agriculture to keep this winged workforce operating efficiently.

Your diet plan isn't working? New Baylor research explains why
Dieters tend to adopt the wrong strategies, often planning to ditch their favorite foods and replace them with less-desirable options, according to new research from Baylor University's Hankamer School of Business. Conversely, successful dieters focus on adding healthy foods -- foods that they actually like. (2016-07-12)

WSU scientists turn white fat into obesity-fighting beige fat
Washington State University scientists have shown that berries, grapes and other fruits convert excess white fat into calorie-burning 'beige' fat, providing new strategies for the prevention and treatment of obesity. In the study, mice were fed a high fat diet. Those receiving resveratrol in amounts equivalent to 12 ounces of fruit per day for humans gained about 40 percent less weight than control mice.

Red delicious or wolf apple? Brazilian savanna fruits high in antioxidants
Native Brazilian fruits grown in arid climates and poor soil have similar antioxidant activity to conventionally grown Red Delicious apples, according to research published August 21 in the open access journal PLOS ONE by Sandra Fernandes Arruda from the University of Brazil and colleagues from other institutions.

Diatoms have sex after all, and ammonium puts them in the mood
New research shows a species of diatom, a single-celled algae, thought to be asexual does reproduce sexually, and scientists learned it's a common compound -- ammonium -- that puts the ubiquitous organism in the mood. (2017-07-07)

Tomato genome becomes fully sequenced
For the first time, the genome of the tomato, Solanum lycopersicum, has been decoded, and it becomes an important step toward improving yield, nutrition, disease resistance, taste and color of the tomato and other crops. The full genome sequence, as well as the sequence of a wild relative, is jointly published in the latest issue of the journal Nature. (2012-05-30)

Victorians exposed to fine art through Christmas cards
Designers of Christmas cards used fine art on their products to divert attention away from concerns that that the festival was becoming too commercialized, a University of Exeter academic has found. (2015-12-07)

Measuring the marketing effectiveness of asking versus telling
Most marketing campaigns are centered around advertisements that feature statements as the way to convey a message to targeted consumers. New research finds a question mark has advertising value too -- but only under certain conditions. The findings focus on the difference that arousal makes between an advertisement that uses a question mark and one that uses a period. The takeaway for the marketing and advertising industry is to know where your message is being seen. (2015-03-09)

Trimming the spare tire: Canola oil may cut belly fat
Including canola oil in a healthy diet may help reduce abdominal fat in as little as four weeks, according to health researchers. (2016-11-02)

Kiwifruit duplicated its vitamin C genes twice, 50 million and 20 million years ago
Today's kiwifruit, a member of the Chinese gooseberry family, contains about as much vitamin C as an orange. This extra boost in vitamin C production is the result of the kiwifruit's ancestors' spontaneously duplicating their DNA in two separate evolutionary events approximately 50-57 million and 18-20 million years ago, as reported September 20 in the journal iScience.

Deciding to stay or go is a deep-seated brain function
Foraging creatures decide at some point that the food source they're working on is no richer than the rest of the patch and that it's time to move on and find something better. Duke researchers have now found an area of the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) that seems to be integral to this decision, firing with increasing activity until a threshold is reached, whereupon the animal decides it's time to move on.

ACS Thanksgiving podcasts feature advances toward safer, healthier food
With millions of Americans planning to gather around dinner tables for the annual Thanksgiving feast, researchers are reporting key research advances in providing safer and more nutritious food in the 10th and 11th episodes of the American Chemical Society's Global Challenges/Chemistry Solutions podcast series. Those advances include putting that Thanksgiving turkey on a special diet -- animal feed with a natural substance that reduces levels of food-poisoning bacteria inside gobblers and other poultry.

Modified Atkins diet can cut epileptic seizures in adults
A modified version of a popular high-protein, low-carbohydrate diet can significantly cut the number of seizures in adults with epilepsy, a study led by Johns Hopkins researchers suggests. The Atkins-like diet, which has shown promise for seizure control in children, may offer a new lifeline for patients when drugs and other treatments fail or cause complications. (2008-01-27)

Single-cell RNA sequencing sheds new light on cancer cells' varied response to chemotherapy
Single-cell analysis, done in three colon cancer cell lines, is believed to be the first to profile transcriptome-level changes in response to DNA damage across individual cells. (2020-08-25)

Thanksgiving menu stuffed with healthy choices
There's more than just a bountiful feast to be thankful for at Thanksgiving. From the main course to dessert, the traditional Thanksgiving meal is stuffed with healthy food choices, particularly those rich in disease-fighting antioxidants. Here is a sampling of recent research findings about the health benefits of some favorite foods featured on many Thanksgiving menus, courtesy of the American Chemical Society, the world's largest scientific society.

Maps of Miscanthus genome offer insight into grass evolution
Miscanthus grasses are used in gardens, burned for heat and energy, and converted into liquid fuels. They also belong to a prominent grass family that includes corn, sorghum and sugarcane. Two new, independently produced chromosome maps of Miscanthus sinensis (an ornamental that likely is a parent of Miscanthus giganteus, a biofuels crop) are a first step toward sequencing the M. sinensis genome. The studies reveal how a new plant species with distinctive traits can arise as a result of chromosome duplications and fusions. (2012-05-15)

Antioxidant-rich diets improve age-related declines in mental function of rats, USF/VA studies find
Two new animal studies add to the growing body of evidence that eating a diet high in antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables may help protect the brain against age-related decline. Researchers at the University of South Florida Center for Aging and Brain Repair and James A. Haley Veterans' Hospital conducted the studies. (2002-07-15)

Parasitic worms may lead to agricultural stem cell breakthrough
A plant parasitic nematode is a pest that parasitizes the roots of agricultural crops and creates nests called 'galls' which deprive plants of nutrition. Research from Japan on plant reactions to parasitic worms shows that parasitism activates plant stem cells which grow to form galls on their roots. This finding is expected to improve crop breeds and alleviate nematode damage, which is estimated to cost hundreds of billions of dollars each year worldwide. (2017-07-18)
