An Avocado A Day May Keep Bad Cholesterol At Bay
(CBS) – They say “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”, but a new study from Penn State found an avocado a day can keep your cholesterol at bay. Researchers looked at 45 overweight adults over five weeks and found that those who adhered to a moderate-fat diet that included a daily avocado had significantly lower levels of small, dense particles of LDL or “bad” cholesterol, which promote the buildup of plaque in arteries. They also had higher levels of an antioxidant called lutein. More research needs to be done to confirm this finding, but it probably wouldn’t hurt to incorporate more a...

Food Addictions Are Real Addictions —And More And More People Are Getting Hooked
This article is excerpted from TIME: The Science of Addiction—What We Know. What We’re Learning. In some ways, of course, food is more insidious than drugs, because there’s no such thing as abstinence, no such thing as never starting in the first place, no such thing as being able to say, “Food? Never touch the stuff.” You eat because you’ll die if you don’t, so you spend your life in a sort of nutritional two-step—a little but not too much; go overboard today, cut back tomorrow; eat the good stuff but never the junk. Sometimes you succeed at all of that, and other times yo...

Only Children More Likely To Be Obese, Study Finds
By Sandee LaMotte (CNN) — Only children may be at a higher risk for obesity than children who have siblings, according to a new study published Wednesday.

While the sample size was small and the study could not establish cause and effect, it does “raise an interesting point that we need to better understand,” said pediatrician Dr. Natalie Muth, who chairs the A...

I never thought much about the 37 million American adults who suffer from kidney disease until my husband Neil became one of them. Celebrating our first year of marriage in 2001, we learned by accident through an unrelated medical exam that my husband has polycystic kidney disease, an illness which causes the kidneys to fill with cysts over time, rendering the organs unable to function properly.

TFEB drives PGC-1{alpha} expression in adipocytes to protect against diet-induced metabolic dysfunction
In this study, we sought to characterize the role of TFEB in adipocyte and adipose tissue physiology and evaluate the therapeutic potential of adipocyte-specific TFEB overexpression in obesity. We demonstrated that mice with adipocyte-specific TFEB overexpression (Adipo-TFEB) were protected from diet-induced obesity, insulin resistance, and metabolic sequelae. Adipo-TFEB mice were lean primarily through increased metabolic rate, suggesting a role for adipose tissue browning and enhanced nonshivering thermogenesis in fat. Transcriptional characterization revealed that TFEB targeted genes involved in adipose tissue browning ...
