Dairy shows different associations with abdominal and BMI-defined overweight: Cross-sectional analyses exploring a variety of dairy products
Previous studies have suggested weight –regulatory properties for several dairy nutrients, but population-based studies on dairy and body weight are inconclusive. We explored cross–sectional associations between dairy consumption and indicators of overweight.
PURPOSE: There has been little research conducted into aggression in persons with epilepsy (PWE). We determine whether sleep disturbances and obesity are associated with aggression in PWE independent of psychological distress. METHODS: This was a c...
This study examines the contribution of HRB and their effects on multisystem biological risk associated with morbidity and early mortality. We systematically reviewed the literature to assess the links between HRB and AL. Twenty-six eligible human studies were included in our assessment of the current literature investigating the association of different HRB that included overeating/obesity, alcohol, smoking, drug use, physical inactivity and sleep impairments in relation to AL. We found that 50% of obesity and substance abuse, 75% of sleep and 62.5% of combined HRB studies showed a significant association with AL. Lifesty...
Publication date: Available online 14 December 2019Source: Journal of Food Composition and AnalysisAuthor(s): Kathryn M CooperAbstractThis work presents a novel, comprehensive ingredient co-occurrence network of foods in the United States from the Open Food Database. This network, which contains over 69,000 ingredients and 2 million ingredient co-occurrence relationships, provides a glimpse into the current use of common ingredients for food production and distribution in the United States. Understanding food intake behaviors from this data-driven perspective opens up new avenues for precision health and wellness, for exam...
Food systems are behind poor growth and over-eating in many low-income countries, a report says.
With one in three low and middle-income countries facing the two extremes of malnutrition – undernutrition and obesity – the UN’s health agency WHO is calling for a new approach to deal with rapidly changing food systems.
ConclusionICT-based interventions can support postpartum women to achieve a healthy lifestyle and weight control. Future studies should focus on larger sample sizes, longer follow-up periods, and adherence to the interventions.Systematic review registrationPROSPERO CRD42018080731
ConclusionRVHR in class-II and class-III obese patients is safe, feasible, and effective. In addition to this, it has comparable short-term outcomes with those non-obese and class-I obese patients.
ConclusionDaily avocado intake over 12 weeks, after controlling for covariates, improved attentional inhibition and increased serum lutein concentrations among adults with overweight and obesity. However, the cognitive benefits were independent of changes in lutein concentrations. Additional work is necessary to determine non-carotenoid, or carotenoid interactive, dependent mechanisms by which avocados may influence cognitive function.
