Food and Heart Health Documentary – What are you Eating?

Interesting Irish documentary around the foods we eat and how they contribute to Heart Attack risk. LCHF advocates Dr. Aseem Malhotra and Prof Sherif Sultan are in great form. Lots of mixed messages throughout though – the fat situation generally well presented, but fat-phobia lurks and pops up regularly. Processed foods, refined carbs and sugar […]

Breast Cancer Risk in Metabolically Healthy but Overweight Postmenopausal Women

Adiposity is an established risk factor for postmenopausal breast cancer. Recent data suggest that high insulin levels in overweight women may play a major role in this relationship, due to insulin’s mitogenic/antiapoptotic activity. However, whether overweight women who are metabolically healthy (i.e., normal insulin sensitivity) have elevated risk of breast cancer is unknown. We investigated […]

Early Time-Restricted Feeding Improves Insulin Sensitivity, Blood Pressure, and Oxidative Stress

Highlights Early time-restricted feeding (eTRF) increases insulin sensitivity eTRF also improves β cell function and lowers blood pressure and oxidative stress eTRF lowers the desire to eat in the evening, which may facilitate weight loss Intermittent fasting can improve health even in the absence of weight loss Intermittent fasting (IF) improves cardiometabolic health; however, it […]

Dietary Restriction Increases Lifespan

Mitochondrial network remodeling between fused and fragmented states facilitates mitophagy, interaction with other organelles, and metabolic flexibility. Aging is associated with a loss of mitochondrial network homeostasis, but cellular processes causally linking these changes to organismal senescence remain unclear. Here, we show that AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) and dietary restriction (DR) promote longevity in C. elegans via maintaining […]

CarbLoaded: A Culture Dying to Eat

The film traces the origins of our beliefs about healthful and unhealthful food. Experts from all over the world talk about the problems as well as short and long term solutions. Among the many experts in the film are authors like Gary Taubes, Mark Sisson, and Melanie Warner. Medical doctors such as David Perlmutter M.D., […]

Prolonged Nightly Fasting and Breast Cancer Prognosis

Rodent studies demonstrate that prolonged fasting during the sleep phase positively influences carcinogenesis and metabolic processes that are putatively associated with risk and prognosis of breast cancer. To our knowledge, no studies in humans have examined nightly fasting duration and cancer outcomes. Objective is to investigate whether duration of nightly fasting predicted recurrence and mortality […]

Top Cardiologist Exposes The Great Cholesterol Con

It is well known that total cholesterol becomes less of a risk factor or not at all for all-cause and cardiovascular (CV) mortality with increasing age, but as little is known as to whether low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), one component of total cholesterol, is associated with mortality in the elderly, we decided to investigate this […]
