Is Sushi Healthy? Here ’s Everything You Need to Know

Americans eat sushi in venues as varied as high-end restaurants and prepared foods sections of grocery stores — and many believe it’s a nutritious choice. But is sushi healthy? “Sushi has this halo of being healthy,” says Katherine Zeratsky, a registered dietitian nutritionist and associate professor of nutrition at Mayo Clinic. After all, traditional sushi has all the makings of a health food: it’s stuffed with fresh fish, wrapped in thin sheets of seaweed and presented in neat little rolls. But experts warn not to expect your weekly spicy tuna order to slim your waistline. One of the biggest problems with sushi is portion control. While it may look compact, sushi can have a lot of calories: a single sushi roll cut into six to nine pieces can contain as many as 500 calories, says Isabel Maples, a registered dietitian and spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. (A spicy shrimp roll with condiments has about 550 calories, according to the USDA.) “Our eyes will tell us something, and it may or may not match with what’s happening nutritionally,” adds Zeratsky — and that’s before factoring in additional rolls, appetizers or a cup of sake. “It can add up.” Most of those calories come from the sticky white rice that holds your roll together. Sushi rice is typically made by adding in vinegar and sugar, and the sugar gives it more calories than steamed rice, Zeratsky says. This sweetened sticky ...

Authors: Dome P, Faludi G Abstract Main indications of antidepressants (ADs) as major depressive disorder (MDD) and different kinds of anxiety disorders are quite prevalent during pregnancy and the postpartum period. Due to the possible hazards of in utero and breast milk exposition of ADs, both psychiatrists and mothers frequently have concerns about the use of ADs during the periods of pregnancy and breastfeeding. However, we should also bear in mind that affective disorders left untreated during these periods are also associated with health risks for the mother and the baby as well. Accordingly, the treatment of...

Series Type : Expression profiling by high throughput sequencingOrganism : Mus musculusPurpose: No gene expression profiles for the placenta in LPS-induced preterm labor mouse model have been published. The goal of this study was to obtain a comprehensive catalog of differentially expressed genes (DEGs) in the placenta using RNA-seq.Methods: Preterm labor mouse model (P) and control pregnancy group (C) were gained using a protocol from R. Migale, et al., BMC MED 14 (2016):86. Briefly, on day 15.5 of gestation, an abdominal minilaparotomy was performed. The upper right uterine horn between the first and second sacs received...

Abstract Chronic kidney disease affects approximately 10% of the world's adult population: it is within the top 20 causes of death worldwide, and its impact on patients and their families can be devastating. World Kidney Day and International Women's Day in 2018 coincide, thus offering an opportunity to reflect on the importance of women's health and specifically women's kidney health on the community and the next generations, as well as to strive to be more curious about the unique aspects of kidney disease in women so that we may apply those learnings more broadly. Girls and women, who make up approximately 50% ...

Abstract The aim of this study was to investigate the reproductive, biochemical, and hematological outcomes of pregnant rats exposed to protein restriction. Wistar rat dams were fed a control normal-protein (NP, 17% protein, n=8) or a low-protein (LP, 8% protein, n=14) diet from the 1st to the 20th day of pregnancy. On the 20th day, the clinical signs of toxicity were evaluated. The pregnant rats were then anesthetized and blood samples were collected for biochemical-hematological analyses, and laparotomy was performed to evaluate reproductive parameters. No sign of toxicity, or differences (P>0.05) in body wei...

Publication date: Available online 25 May 2018 Source:Biochimica et Biophysica Acta (BBA) - Proteins and Proteomics Author(s): Gaurav Garg, Kuljit Singh, Vahab AliDr Leishmaniasis, a parasitic protozoan disease, is still a worldwide concern due to persistent issues with chemotherapy, rapid emerging drug resistance; and non- availability of approved vaccine for the control of disease. Therefore, the search of parasite specific proteins to identify new anti-leishmanial drug targets and vaccine candidates is an urgent priority. In this context, proteins that are secreted, in vitro during parasite growth under defined conditi...

Conclusion Neonatal TSH levels are dynamic and may be affected by several maternal and neonatal factors including maternal age, TSH, FT4, and birth weight and height. Identification of these confounders is useful for assessing the status of neonatal thyroid development. Strengths and limitations of this study (1) Iodine deficiency disorder has generally been eliminated, so the median urinary iodine concentration of pregnancy is higher than 150 μg/L even in mildly or moderately iodine deficient areas. (2) Unlike many other studies, which did not consider the complexity of factors or examined only one or two variables, ...

ConclusionsThese findings suggest that young girls with galactosemia maintain follicles in early childhood and fertility cryopreservation may be considered an option in this patient group. The pathophysiology of galactosemia leading to an accelerated follicle loss is unknown and it is currently unknown to what extent transplanted ovarian tissue can sustain fertility in adult life.

In this study, twenty-three alkaloids were identified from Crinum amabile by GC-MS and two new structures (augustine N-oxide and buphanisine N-oxide) were structurally elucidated by NMR. Anti-parasitic and cholinesterase (AChE and BuChE) inhibitory activities of six alkaloids isolated from this species, including the two new compounds, are described herein. None of the alkaloids isolated from C. amabile gave better results than the reference drugs, so it was possible to conclude that the N-oxide group does not increase their therapeutic potential.
