New ACS Cookbook Offers Tasty, Good-For-You Recipes

With 120 all-new recipes including Mini Twice-Baked Potatoes, Chicken Paillard with Arugula and Fennel, and Corn, Avocado, and Tomato Salad, The New Healthy Eating Cookbook, Fourth Edition can help home cooks and their families eat better without sacrificing flavor or taste. The recipes were reviewed by the American Cancer Society’s medical and nutrition experts and emphasize fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein. The New Healthy Eating Cookbook also includes tips on portion control, meal planning, healthy snacking, and reading nutrition labels. “Good health starts with good nutrition, and this cookbook is a perfect resource,” said Colleen Doyle, managing director of nutrition and physical activity. “It’s filled with delicious recipes to please any palate and will remind readers that food can be healthy and also taste great and look beautiful.” Author Jeanne Besser says the cookbook is appropriate for cooks of all levels of expertise who want to try new recipes and make healthy choices about the food they eat and serve. “Healthy eating doesn’t mean sacrificing flavor,” says Besser. “Anyone can use this book to create delicious meals that also happen to be good for you.” For example, Corn, Avocado, and Tomato Salad can be served as a side dish or paired with tortilla chips for an appetizer. If you are using fresh corn, boil or steam 3 ears for 1 minute before cutting the kernels off the cob...

In this study, we found that cofilin competes with tau for direct microtubule binding in vitro, in cells, and in vivo, which inhibits tau-induced microtubule assembly. Genetic reduction of cofilin mitigates tauopathy and synaptic defects in Tau-P301S mice and movement deficits in tau transgenic C. elegans. The pathogenic effects of cofilin are selectively mediated by activated cofilin, as active but not inactive cofilin selectively interacts with tubulin, destabilizes microtubules, and promotes tauopathy. These results therefore indicate that activated cofilin plays an essential intermediary role in neurotoxic signaling th...

This study aimed to investigate if hyperinsulinemia and/or insulin resistance was correlated with the occurrence of papillary thyroid cancer (PTC) in a group of Chinese patients. 258 inpatients were included in the study. According to the postoperative pathology results, all subjects were divided into PTC (n = 153) and control groups (with benign thyroid nodules, n = 105). Body mass index (BMI), fasting glucose, fasting insulin, homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR), thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), FT4, FT3, thyroid peroxidase antibody (TPOAb), thyroglobulin antibody (TGAb), serum uric acid (UA), ...

Authors: Momtazi-Borojeni AA, Nik ME, Jaafari MR, Banach M, Sahebkar A Abstract Introduction: Inhibition of proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin 9 (PCSK9) is an effective therapeutic tool for lowering low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C). There is no available evidence on the efficacy and safety of PCSK9 inhibitors in non-cardiovascular diseases, particularly cancer. The present study aimed to evaluate the effect of PCSK9 inhibition on cancer endpoints in mice bearing colon carcinoma, using a nanoliposomal antiPCSK9 vaccine. Material and methods: The prepared nanoliposomal antiPCSK9 vaccine was subcuta...
