Protein linked to aging identified as new target for controlling diabetes
Researchers have identified a small protein with a big role in lowering plasma glucose and increasing insulin sensitivity. The report indicates that Sestrin 3 plays a critical role in regulating molecular pathways that control the production of glucose and insulin sensitivity in the liver, making it a logical target for drug development for type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome, which can produce increased blood pressure, abnormal cholesterol levels and insulin resistance.

Research suggests high-fat diets during pregnancy could influence brain functioning, behavior of children
A diet high in fat can increase one’s risk for diabetes, obesity and metabolic syndrome; however few studies have assessed the effects of a maternal high fat diet on offspring. New research suggests that a high-fat maternal diet during pregnancy and while breastfeeding could have significant and lasting detrimental effects on the brain function and behavior of children. The study is one of few basic science studies conducted to measure the direct effect of a high-fat maternal diet on the cognitive functioning on offspring. (Source: ScienceDaily Headlines)

Is High Fructose Corn Syrup Really That Bad for You?
High-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is an insidious chemical that has crept into our food supply over the past few decades. Today HFCS represents [1] more than 40 percent of caloric sweeteners added to foods and beverages. HFCS can contain anywhere from 55 to 90 percent fructose [2] and is derived from corn, a heavily subsidized (read: cheap) crop. Manufacturers love HFCS because, especially when compared to regular sugar, it's cheaper, sweeter and produced in abundance. Not surprisingly, HFCS's ubiquity in the 1980s correlated with the beginning of the obesity epidemic. Other factors, including increased portion sizes, cert...

Sunshine isn't slimming and can't halt diabetes
ConclusionThis study on mice has found long-term ultraviolet (UV) irradiation significantly suppressed weight gain and markers of metabolic syndrome, including glucose intolerance and insulin resistance, and blood levels of fasting insulin, glucose and cholesterol, in male mice fed a high-fat diet.Many of the benefits of UV radiation were not reproduced by vitamin D supplementation alone. The researchers instead think that another chemical called nitric oxide, which is also produced when skin is exposed to UV light, may be responsible for the differences seen.Mice are nocturnal animals covered in fur whose skin is not usua...
