In this study, C57BL/6 J mice were parentally exposed to 100 ppb arsenic before conception. After weaning, both male and female offspring were maintained on 100 ppb arsenic and fed either a normal (LFD) or high fat diet (HFD). At 10 and 24 weeks of age, the offspring were sacrificed and kidneys collected. Exposure to arsenic led to an increase body-weight in LFD diet-fed female but not male mice. This response was not observed in HFD-fed female mice; however male mice showed significant increases in body weight in both As- and non-treated animals. Histological analysis shows that arsenic exposure significantly increa...
The objective of this article is to describe the design, implementation and evaluation of an educational initiative conducted in a Mexican locality with the aim of promoting the consumption of fruits, vegetables (FVs) and simple water (SW) among preschoolers through the influence of their mothers and teachers. We used the Intervention Mapping methodology with qualitative and quantitative components. Mothers attended eight theoretical and practical sessions and two school meetings, while teachers were offered two workshops. Our results revealed positive changes among both groups: participants took greater interest in health...

Conclusion: This prospective study shows a higher prevalence of severe hypoglycaemia (25.6%) after BS than anticipated from retrospective registers. A systematic evaluation of glucose and insulin levels by OGTT 2 years post-surgery may help to identify patients at increased risk for symptomatic and asymptomatic hypoglycaemia.Obes Facts

(The Obesity Society) Advocates for obesity prevention and treatment have designed two new resources for medical educators, healthcare providers and community programs that will enhance the level of care for patients, according to two new studies published online today in Obesity, the flagship journal of The Obesity Society. The resources include the first set of competencies for how to care for patients with obesity for undergraduate and graduate medical education, and a proposed standard of care for people with obesity.
