view more Credit: Kanazawa University[Background]Sulforaphane*1, a phytochemical contained in broccoli sprouts at relatively high concentrations, has been known to exert effects of cancer prevention by activating a transcription factor, Nrf2 (nuclear factor (erythroid-derived 2)-like 2), which regulates the balance of oxidation - reduction in the cell, and by enhancing anti-oxidation ability of the body and detoxication of chemical compounds taken into the body. On the other hand, when the balance of oxidation - reduction is deteriorated due to hyper nutrition and obesity, it ha

how to roast brussels sprouts

Oven roasting brings out the best in all vegetables, including Brussels sprouts. The oven's heat caramelizes the Brussels sprout's leaves, turning them lacy and crisp while tenderizing their tough core. And that's just with a basic sprinkling of salt and pepper! Once roasted, Brussels sprouts can be served as a side straight from the oven, or you can toss them with a few other kitchen staples to turn them into a showy number studded with bacon and glazed with honey.
Oven-roasted Brussels sprouts require three things: a hot oven, halved and trimmed Brussels sprouts, and enough time for the sprouts to transform into tender, tasty morsels. You'll need a good baking sheet and some oil, salt, and pepper, but anything else is superfluous. Here's how to get the very best Brussels sprouts by oven

This is another step forward in a compelling new area of study on the underlying genetics of cancer development and progression.The findings were published by researchers from Oregon State University in the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry.The research provides more evidence for how these lncRNAs, w

recipe: ground beef and broccoli fried rice

Tender stir-fried beef and broccoli in a savory sauce is a takeout favorite, especially spooned over a bowl of steamed rice. We've paired up this classic Chinese-American dish with another takeout staple, fried rice, resulting in a one-pan meal loaded with crisp-tender broccoli, savory ground beef, and fragrant, garlicky rice. It's a two-for-one dish that means you don't have to pick up the phone and order delivery for dinner.
Fried rice is a great dish to stretch just a little bit of meat or protein a long way. Ground beef, while not traditional in beef and broccoli, is economical, cooks quickly, and delivers crispy meaty flavor in every bite. Start cooking it with some small broccoli florets right in the same pan before moving onto the fried rice part.
Use the same pan to heat up the c

study identifies african-specific genomic variant associated with obesity

An international team of researchers has conducted the first study of its kind to look at the genomic underpinnings of obesity in continental Africans and African-Americans. They discovered that approximately 1 percent of West Africans, African-Americans and others of African ancestry carry a genomic variant that increases their risk of obesity, a finding that provides insight into why obesity clusters in families. Researchers at the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), part of the National Institutes of Health, and their African collaborators published their findings March 13, 2017, in the journal Obesity.People with genomic differences in the semaphorin-4D (SEMA4D) gene were about six pounds heavier than those without the genomic variant, according to the study. Most of the

political affiliation, weight influence your opinion on fighting obesity, study

LAWRENCE -- People's political leanings and their own weight shape opinions on obesity-related public policies, according to a new study by two University of Kansas researchers.Actually, Republicans -- no matter how much they weigh -- believe eating and lifestyle habits cause obesity, the research found. But among Democrats there is more of a dividing line, said Mark Joslyn, a KU professor of political science. Those who identify themselves as overweight are more likely to believe genetic factors cause obesity."Self-reported overweight people were significantly more likely to believe obesity is caused by genetics than normal weight people," Joslyn said. "The belief that obesity is due to genetics tends to remove blame. Obesity is not a choice, some would argue, but rather people are simply

american gastroenterological association releases obesity practice guide

Bethesda, MD (Feb. 27, 2017) -- Patients with obesity need a multidisciplinary approach to achieve a healthy weight, and the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) believes that gastroenterologists are in a unique position to lead the care team.To provide gastroenterologists with a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary process to guide and personalize innovative obesity care for safe and effective weight management, including a model for how to operationalize business issues, AGA has created an Obesity Practice Guide. The program includes an obesity program to help gastroenterologists manage their patients with obesity, as well as a framework focused on the business operational issues related to the management of obese patients, which are published in Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepa

study identifies strategies to improve knee replacement outcomes in patients wit

ROSEMONT, Ill. (March 1, 2017)--Obesity affects 35 percent of the adult population in the U.S. A new literature review published in the Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (JAAOS) identifies strategies to improve total knee replacement (TKR) outcomes in patients with obesity. TKR is a common orthopaedic procedure that is used to replace the damaged or worn surfaces of the knee, often caused by injury or osteoarthritis, to decrease pain and restore mobility for patients."Until recently, little was known about the outcomes of patients with obesity undergoing TKR," said lead study author and orthopaedic hip and knee surgeon J. Ryan Martin, MD. "We sought to review what information is known and what areas need further investigation." According to the current review, prior t

scientists discover how obesity stops 'guardian immune cells' from doing their j

Scientists have uncovered the physiological mechanics underlying inflammation and obesity by tracking the actions of 'guardian immune cells' in response to changes in diet. They believe their work may herald a new era of research now that they have new therapeutic targets to prevent and control obesity-related inflammation and metabolic disease.The scientists, led by Professor Lydia Lynch of Trinity College Dublin and Harvard Medical School, discovered that special guardian immune cells are unable to function properly once obesity is established, which results in severe inflammation and metabolic dysfunction.These guardian immune cells, called Adipose Type One Innate Lymphoid Cells, or ILCs, were only recently discovered by Professor Lynch and her team. They live in our fat, and are charge

the science of liquorice

Once you’re over the shock of Marmite. Credit: ShutterstockThere are foods that can split families, or even just couples. Love it or hate it foods. Marmite (and the vegetarian alternative, Vegemite) is one. Then there's Brussels sprouts, blue cheese, chilli peppers, coriander (cilantro), tomatoes (especially the cooked variety) … and liquorice.
Personally, I've always liked liquorice, but there are others who feel very differently about it. There are known to be genetic reasons behind a dislike of some foods such as Brussels sprouts or coriander but no one has established this for liquorice.Liquorice has a long history; the root of the plant Glycyrrhiza glabral has been used medicinally for over 4,000 years. Liquorice has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiviral properties and has

recipe: sweet and spicy braised cabbage

(Image credit: Karla Conrad)
How long does it take to braise cabbage until tender and translucent in the oven? One hour. In the pressure cooker? Five minutes of pressure-cooking time — or 15 minutes from start to finish. Pressure cooking will not only cook vegetables faster, but compared to conventional boiling and braising, it retains more vitamins and minerals, too. Make this side dish of sweet and spicy braised cabbage the next time you want a flavorful companion to any roast meat.

Even though the pressure cooker cooks the veggies at a higher temperature, it exposes the vitamins and minerals to the heat for less time. Most vegetables, with a few exceptions, will be tender with five minutes or less of pressur

10 things your grocery store butcher can do for you (that you didn't expect)

moderate drinkers don’t need to give up alcohol to lose weight

Good news for anyone trying to shed a few pounds: You can have your wine and weight loss too. While alcohol does not make you lose weight — contrary to the viral claims a few years back stating that drinking is better for you than going to the gym — it isn't something you have to eliminate entirely from your diet.
According to The New York Times, a 2015 review of cross-sectional studies published in journal Current Obesity Reports found that "frequent light to moderate alcohol intake does not seem to be associated with obesity risk." What exactly qualifies as "frequent light to moderate"? That's two drinks a day for dudes and one drink a day for gals.
Things are different when it comes to binge drinking and heavy drinking, which is four drinks or more a day for men and three drinks or mo

benefits of physical activity may outweigh impact of obesity on cardiovascular d

Sophia Antipolis, March 1, 2017: The benefits of physical activity may outweigh the impact of overweight and obesity on cardiovascular disease in middle-aged and elderly people, according to research published today in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology.1 The observational study was conducted in more than 5,000 people aged 55 years and older who were followed-up for 15 years."Overweight and obesity is associated with a higher risk of cardiovascular disease and it is recommended to lose weight," said author Dr Klodian Dhana, a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Epidemiology, Erasmus University Medical Centre, Rotterdam, the Netherlands. "But in the elderly this is slightly different because weight loss, especially unintentional, is associated with muscle loss and death.

focus on sugar to prevent obesity a 'recipe for disaster', expert says

We are barking up the wrong tree by blaming sugar for the obesity epidemic, says Professor Jennie Brand-Miller of the University of Sydney's Charles Perkins Centre.In a new paper, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Brand-Miller and colleague Dr Alan Barclay say that over the course of 30 years there has been a "downward trend" in the availability and reported consumption of added sugars and sweeteners among Australians.
There is an inordinate focus on sugar, says Jennie Brand-Miller. Photo: StocksyAt the same time there has been a steep rise in the incidence of obesity.To put it in perspective, in 1980 10 per cent of Australian adults were obese. Now, about 60 per cent of adults are either overweight or obese.If the trajectory stays the same, by 2025, almost 80 per

presstv-'rare genetic disorder could wipe out obesity'

A woman’s rare genetic disorder could hold the key to weight loss. That’s according to a recent case study.Abby Solomon was born with a genetic mutation called neonatal progeroid syndrome, which mangles the body and prevents it from making an appetite stimulant hormone. Dr. Atul Chopra (Photo by CBS News)This means she needs to eat all the time for her body to function despite rarely feeling hunger. But while difficult for Abby, Dr. Atul Chopra of Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, says studying Abby’s case could lead to a breakthrough in tackling obesity and diabetes. To make that happen, Chopra is developing an anti-body that shuts down the hormone’s effects the way Abby’s body does. The procedure has shown very positive results when tested on mice. Dr. Chopra is now working on gaini
