WVU study: Diabetics exposed to common household chemicals have lower heart disease rates

(West Virginia University) The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention deemed exposure to perfluoroalkyl substances -- a class of chemicals used in cookware, cleaning products and paint--a public health concern. But new research by a team of scientists including Kim Innes, a professor of Epidemiology in the WVU School of Public Health, explores how exposure to PFAS may be linked to lower heart disease rates in diabetic adults.

Publication date: Available online 17 October 2019Source: Chemico-Biological InteractionsAuthor(s): Lili Zhang, Xiaogui Qi, Guowei Zhang, Yingying Zhang, Jiali TianAbstractType II diabetes is recognized as a major risk factor for death due to cardiovascular complications such as coronary heart disease (CHD), but the complex interplay between these two diseases remains poorly understood. Suppression of oxidative stress, apoptosis, and inflammation of endothelial cells is a valuable treatment strategy to prevent or halt the progression of CHD. In the present study, we used real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR), Western b...

(CNN) — Should you eat before or after exercise in the morning? The debate has raged for years. The eat-first camp says food before exercise boosts blood sugars, giving the body fuel to increase the intensity and length of a workout. It also keeps you from being fatigued or dizzy. The eat-after camp says you burn more fat if you fast before exercise. A small UK study published Friday supports the latter point of view: In 30 obese or overweight men, those who exercised before breakfast burned twice the fat as men who ate breakfast before they worked out. That’s because exercising with no fuel forces the body to ...

(CNN) — Americans spent $1.4 billion on the most popular brands of children’s fruit drinks and flavored waters last year. Yet according to nutritional guidelines, none of the drinks were healthy. Why would loving parents do this? Perhaps because US beverage companies spent $20.7 million to advertise fun, fruity drinks with added sugars to families in 2018, according to Children’s Drink Facts 2019, a new report from the University of Connecticut’s Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity. “I know that parents want their children to be healthy, but the sweetened drink market is just incredibly co...

By DEBORAH A. COHEN Physical inactivity is a mounting challenge for America. In reviewing the 2013-2015 American time use survey, we found that most Americans report spending their daily leisure time watching screens, and devote only a small fraction of leisure time—24 minutes for men and 14 minutes for women—to physical activity. A recent longitudinal examination of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey showed that sitting time increased by an hour a day between 2007 and 2016, with the largest increases among adolescents ages 12-19 and adults, 20 years and older. As m...
