New Research Finds Link Between Seafood, Healthy Aging
BOSTON (CBS) – If you want to grow old gracefully, perhaps you should eat more fish. A new study finds a link between eating seafood and healthy aging. Even though we all want to live longer, we want to live longer without pain and suffering and with a good quality of life. And researchers at Tufts University and around the country say eating more fish could help towards that end. They followed more than 2500 older adults between 1992 and 2015 and found that those with the highest blood levels of omega-3 fatty acids found in fish had an 18-percent lower risk of unhealthy aging. While the study doesn’t prove th...

Structural basis for the modulation of voltage-gated sodium channels by animal toxins
Animal toxins that modulate the activity of voltage-gated sodium (Nav) channels are broadly divided into two categories—pore blockers and gating modifiers. The pore blockers tetrodotoxin (TTX) and saxitoxin (STX) are responsible for puffer fish and shellfish poisoning in humans, respectively. Here, we present structures of the insect Nav channel NavPaS bound to a gating modifier toxin Dc1a at 2.8 angstrom-resolution and in the presence of TTX or STX at 2.6-Å and 3.2-Å resolution, respectively. Dc1a inserts into the cleft between VSDII and the pore of NavPaS, making key contacts with both domains. The stru...

Eating Fish May Help Keep You Healthy Into Old Age, Study Says
Certain fats found in seafood may help keep you healthy for years to come, according to a new study published in the BMJ. Higher blood levels of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids — healthy fats found in foods such as fish, nuts, leafy greens and vegetable and flaxseed oils — were associated with a greater chance of healthy aging, according to the observational research. Omega-3s found in seafood seemed to have the strongest effect, says study co-author Heidi Lai, a postdoctoral fellow at Tufts’ Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy. “There had been studies that looked at the relationship...

10 Ways to Keep Your Heart Healthy
No one ever had fun visiting the cardiologist. ­Regardless of how good the doc might be, it’s always a little scary thinking about the health of something as fundamental as the heart. But there are ways to take greater control—to ensure that your own heart health is the best it can be—even if you have a family history of cardiovascular disease. Although 50% of cardiovascular-disease risk is genetic, the other 50% can be modified by how you live your life, according to Dr. Eugenia Gianos, director of Women’s Heart Health at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. “This means you can greatly ...

Why We Keep Ignoring Even the Most Dire Climate Change Warnings
You’d think the end of the world would be enough to get us scared. Humans have always been an exceedingly risk-averse species—which is how we came to survive as a species at all. If there are lions on one part of the savannah, we go to another. If crocodiles keep coming out of the river, we fish somewhere else. So when it comes to the loss of the entire planet, well, we ought to take action. And yet we don’t; we never do. That odd contradiction is on display again, in the wake of an announcement by the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that a catastrophe is nigh—that th...

Vitamin D Supplements Do Not Improve Bone Health, According To Major Study
By Tara John (CNN) — Vitamin D supplements do not improve bone mineral density or prevent fractures or falls in adults, finds a large study that advises health professionals to stop recommending the supplements to most patients. The vitamin has long been associated with a decreased risk of a number of conditions, such as osteoporosis and hypertension, in addition to keeping bones strong by helping the body absorb calcium — which is why many use it during the dark winter months. But the study’s authors say there is “little justification” in doing so when it comes to bone health. “Our meta...
