Students chowing down tuna in dining halls are unaware of mercury exposure risks
Jonathan KantrowitzatHealth News Report - 1 week ago
A surprising number of students eating in university dining halls have been helping themselves to servings of tuna well beyond the amounts recommended to avoid consuming too much mercury, a toxic heavy metal. Researchers at UC Santa Cruz surveyed students outside of campus dining halls on their tuna consumption habits and knowledge of mercury exposure risks, and also measured the mercury levels in hair samples from the students. They found that hair mercury levels were closely correlated with how much tuna the students said they ate. And for some students, their hair mercury measur... more »
Higher salt intake can cause bloating

Goat milk kefir is proven to be good for your health
Jonathan KantrowitzatHealth News Report - 2 weeks ago
University of Córdoba Kefir is a fermented dairy product that is gradually becoming more and more common to see on the shelves of Spanish shops and supermarkets. Since it is a milk-based product, made from lactic acid and alcoholic fermentation, it is assumed to have several health-enhancing functions resulting from its protein and peptide content with biological activity (molecules made up of amino acids, smaller than proteins, that are beneficial for one's health). However, to date there had never been a complete analysis of what kinds of peptides goat milk kefir has. So, a Univer... more »
Milk: Best drink to reduce burn from chili peppers
Jonathan KantrowitzatHealth News Report - 2 weeks ago
People who order their Buffalo wings especially spicy and sometimes find them to be too "hot," should choose milk to reduce the burn, according to Penn State researchers, who also suggest it does not matter if it is whole or skim. The research originated as an effort by the Sensory Evaluation Center in Penn State's College of Agricultural Sciences to identify a beverage to clear the palates of participants in tasting studies involving capsaicin.

Elbows key for walkers' efficiency
Jonathan KantrowitzatHealth News Report - 11 hours ago
Wandering through the Harvard campus one day in 2015, graduate student Andrew Yegian recalls how something unusual caught his eye. 'I noticed a person running with straight arms', he explains. This really stood out for Yegian, as runners usually bend the elbow, while walkers keep their arms straight, which made him wonder: 'If straight arms are better for walking, why aren't they better for running, and vice versa?' he puzzled. Was there a trade-off between the cost of keeping the elbow bent and swinging the arm at the shoulder that could benefit runners? Could walkers conserve ene... more »
Exercise improves brain function in overweight and obese individuals
Jonathan KantrowitzatHealth News Report - 12 hours ago
New findings out of the University of Tübingen show that, on top of its benefits for metabolism, mood, and general health, exercise also improves brain function. In recent studies, researchers learned that obese and overweight individuals are prone to insulin resistance in the brain, where it provides information about current nutritional status, as well as the rest of the body. So researchers wanted to know whether exercise can improve insulin sensitivity in the brain and improve cognition in overweight individuals. In the current study, led by Dr. Stephanie Kullmann, 22 sedentary... more »

Diet quality may affect risk of frailty in older adults
Jonathan KantrowitzatHealth News Report - 6 days ago
Poorer overall diet quality was linked with an increased risk of becoming frail in a study of U.S. community-dwelling older adults, published in the *Journal of the American Geriatric Society*. The quality of the overall diet appeared to be more important than protein intake for a lower risk of frailty. During 4 years of follow-up, 277 of the 2154 participants--who were 70-81 years and characterized as "robust" or "pre-frail" at the start of the study--developed frailty. Poor- and medium-quality diets were associated with a 92% and 40% higher incidence of frailty compared with good... more »
