Study Finds High-Fat Diet Disturbs Body Clock

A new study has found that when rats are fed a high-fat diet, this disturbs the body clock in their brain that normally controls satiety, leading to over-eating and obesity. The findings of the study were published in ‘The Journal of Physiology’. The number of people with obesity has nearly tripled worldwide since 1975. In England alone, 28 per cent of adults are obese and another 36 per cent are overweight.Obesity can lead to several other diseases such as Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and some types of cancer. This new research may be a cornerstone for future clinical studies that could restore the proper functioning of the body clock in the brain, to avoid overeating. Historically, it was believed that the master body clock was only located in a part of the brain called the hypothalamus. However, further research over the years…

Consuming Walnuts Daily Lowers LDL-Cholesterol Levels: Study

According to a new research, healthy older adults who ate a handful of walnuts (about 1/2 cup) a day for two years modestly lowered their level of low-density lipoprotein or LDL cholesterol levels. Consuming walnuts daily also reduced the number of LDL particles, a predictor of cardiovascular disease risk. The findings of the study were published in the American Heart Association’s flagship journal ‘Circulation’. Walnuts are a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids (alpha-linolenic acid), which have been shown to have a beneficial effect on cardiovascular health. “Prior studies have shown that nuts in general, and walnuts in particular, are associated with lower rates of heart disease and stroke. One of the reasons is that they lower LDL-cholesterol levels, and now we have another reason: they improve the quality of LDL particles,” said study co-author Emilio Ros, MD, PhD, director of the Lipid Clinic…

Study: Smell Regulates What We Eat And Vice Versa

A new study has shown that just as smell regulates what we eat, what we eat, in turn, regulates our sense of smell. The findings of the study were published in the journal ‘PLOS Biology’. Walking past a corner bakery, you may find yourself drawn in by the fresh smell of sweets wafting from the front door. You’re not alone: The knowledge that humans make decisions based on their nose has led major brands like Cinnabon and Panera Bread to pump the scents of baked goods into their restaurants, leading to big spikes in sales. But according to the new study, the food you ate just before your walk past the bakery may impact your likelihood of stopping in for a sweet treat – and not just because you’re full. Scientists at Northwestern University found that people became less sensitive to food odours based…
