Cruciferous Vegetable Intake Is Inversely Associated with Lung Cancer Risk among Current Nonsmoking Men in the Japan Public Health Center Study [Nutrition and Disease]

Cruciferous Vegetable Intake Is Inversely Associated with Lung Cancer Risk among Current Nonsmoking Men in the Japan Public Health Center Study [Nutrition and Disease] Background: Cruciferous vegetables, a rich source of isothiocyanates, have been reported to lower the risk of several types of cancer, including lung cancer. However, evidence from prospective observations of populations with…

Plasma trans-Fatty Acid Concentrations Continue to Be Associated with Serum Lipid and Lipoprotein Concentrations among US Adults after Reductions in trans-Fatty Acid Intake [Nutritional Epidemiology]

Plasma trans-Fatty Acid Concentrations Continue to Be Associated with Serum Lipid and Lipoprotein Concentrations among US Adults after Reductions in trans-Fatty Acid Intake [Nutritional Epidemiology] Background: High intakes of trans-fatty acids (TFAs), especially industrially produced TFAs, can lead to unfavorable lipid and lipoprotein concentrations and an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. It is unknown how…

Postexercise Dietary Protein Ingestion Increases Whole-Body Leucine Balance in a Dose-Dependent Manner in Healthy Children [Nutrient Physiology, Metabolism, and Nutrient-Nutrient Interactions]

Postexercise Dietary Protein Ingestion Increases Whole-Body Leucine Balance in a Dose-Dependent Manner in Healthy Children [Nutrient Physiology, Metabolism, and Nutrient-Nutrient Interactions] Background: Protein ingestion is important in enhancing whole-body protein balance in children. The effect of discrete bolus protein ingestion on acute postexercise recovery has yet to be determined. Objective: This study determined the effect…

Biological age-predicting 'epigenetic clock' for studying how to extend lifespan

Biological age-predicting ‘epigenetic clock’ for studying how to extend lifespan In order to measure and test the effects of interventions in the lab, investigators have developed an age-predicting clock designed for studies in mice. The new clock accurately predicts mouse biological age and the effects of genetic and dietary factors, giving the scientific community a…

Strong early education equals better long-term relationships with parents, research shows

Strong early education equals better long-term relationships with parents, research shows Scientists say children who are given high-quality education at an early age — starting at six weeks — are more likely to be employed full-time and have better relationships with their parents as adults. Strong early education equals better long-term relationships with parents, research…
