Schema C. elegans Inserm Mettre le petit ver Caenorhabditis elegans au régime strict permet d'allonger de 40% son espérance de vie et diminue son risque de cancer. C'est le résultat publiée dans la revue Aging Cell par l'équipe de Marc Billaud et Florence Solari du centre de Recherche sur le Cancer de Lyon (CNRS/Inserm/université Lyon 1/centre Léon Bérard). Cela fait assez longtemps que les biologistes savant que l'alimentation joue un rôle important dans la longévité des animaux, gros et petits.

Et les études sur ce petit ver ont pu être extrapolées aux mammifères. Cette nouvelle étude montre qu'un régime alimentaire strict mais sans dénutrition provoque un double effet sur ce petit ver, animal de laboratoire très commun. D'une part il vit plus longtemps. Dans leur expérience, les biologistes ont obtenu les mêmes résultats finaux avec deux methodes. Le gène slcf-1 serait donc un gérontogène, lié au processus de vieillissement.

Guérir du cancer ou s'en protéger. Synopsis Peut-on éradiquer le cancer? Oui, si nous changeons notre conception de la maladie : tel est le message d'espoir du professeur Dominique Belpomme, président de l'Association française pour la recherche thérapeutique anticancéreuse (ARTAC). II y a urgence. Car si les progrès de la médecine permettent désormais de vraies guérisons pour près de la moitié des malades, aucune nouvelle amélioration significative n'est à attendre des recherches thérapeutiques. Démonstration scientifique à l'appui, l'auteur en arrive à la conclusion que ces recherches sont aujourd'hui dans l'impasse. Or les causes des cancers ne sont pas seulement celles que l'on croyait jusqu'alors. Loin de tenir uniquement à notre mode de vie, elles sont en fait en grande partie liées à la pollution de l'environnement par les produits chimiques, l'amiante, les pesticides, les dioxines, certains additifs alimentaires...

Docu - alert dans nos assiettes. Revue de presse: L’obésité affecte près d’une personne sur trois dans la plupart des pays industrialisés. La moitie des europeens en surpoids ou obesesL’OCDE et la Commission européenne viennent de publier conjointement un rapport intitulé Panorama de la santé : Europe. Le constat est sans appel : le taux d’obésité a plus que doublé dans la majorité des pays européens ces vingt dernières années, et plus la moitié des Européens sont en surpoids ou obèses.

Publié par Jean-Pierre Ndongo le 8 décembre 2010-> AfriqueActu.net <- Carte animée de l’épidémie d’obésité aux Etats-Unis qui donne une idée de ce qui est en train d’arriver en France… L’obésité est-elle (vraiment) un enjeu de santé publique ? Alerte dans nos assiettes On est foutu, on mange trop ! Nutrition, les bons conseils pour bien manger Épistémophilique... Une nouvelle pyramide alimentaire qui fait ses preuves.

25 novembre 2002 - En scrutant le régime alimentaire de 100 000 hommes et femmes, des chercheurs de l'École de santé publique de Harvard sont parvenus à des conclusions très intéressantes pointant vers la nécessité de « reconstruire » la pyramide alimentaire américaine afin d'y inclure les dernières connaissances en nutrition. Ainsi, les personnes dont le régime alimentaire se rapproche le plus de cette nouvelle pyramide sont moins susceptibles de développer une maladie chronique ou cardiaque que ceux dont l'alimentation respecte les recommandations actuellement en vigueur aux États-Unis. Ces résultats ne sont pas sans remettre également en question le Guide alimentaire canadien (datant de 1990 et en cours de révision) puisque les recommandations qu'on y retrouve sont sensiblement les mêmes que celles de la pyramide américaine.

Une mise à jour semblait donc nécessaire. Les recommandations se lisent comme suit, de la base de la pyramide jusqu'au sommet : Les résultats sont éloquents. HealthyEatingPyramid-HighRes.jpg (2718×3491) Treating Eating Disorders and Paying for It. Child Nutrition Bill Clears Congress. Lobbied for the bill as a way to combat obesity and hunger. About half of the $4.5 billion cost is financed by a cut in food stamps starting in several years.

Mrs. Obama said she was thrilled by passage of what she described as a groundbreaking piece of legislation. By a vote of 264 to 157, the House on Thursday passed the bill, which was approved in the Senate by unanimous consent in August. On the final roll call, 247 Democrats and 17 Republicans voted for the bill. Some liberal House Democrats and advocates for the poor railed against the bill in September, saying it was wrong to pay for the expansion of child nutrition programs by cutting money for food stamps, now known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. Democrats put aside their disagreements on Thursday, after concluding that it was better to take what they could get than to gamble on their chances in the next Congress when Republicans will control the House. Democrats and a few Republicans praised Mrs.

Mr. Nutrition and the School Lunch Line. When a school lunch is nutritious and tasty, it’s one of the best health bargains around. Lunches provided through the National School Lunch Program, which is subsidized by the federal government, cost parents about $1.25 to $2, typically less than it would cost to make the meal at home. For lower-income families, the bill is less, or even free. P.S. 29 students are lucky; their school participates in Wellness in the Schools, a nonprofit program that places culinary school graduates in New York City public schools to create appealing meals from wholesome ingredients.

Across the country, many other school districts are beginning to make healthy food a priority by starting school gardens, using local produce and involving parents in the meal planning. Still, at many schools, lunches are neither tasty nor nutritious. School lunches must meet a minimum calorie limit set by the government, but it’s up to individual schools to decide how the are apportioned. The Cost of Obesity | InfographicKing.com | The Web's Best Infographics. Comparison Shopping. America's good food fight - latimes.com. Our holiday table got quite tense. We are a mixed family — Jewish, Christian, Republican, Democrat –— but the tension wasn't from differences over religion or politics.

It was about food. At one end of the table sat my husband's nephew, who runs a food bank. He's an earnest man who spends his days seeking nourishment for the hungry, and favors almost anything that increases food's availability or lowers its price. Other family members sat between us. Our family dynamic mirrors an emerging national debate about how America's food should be produced. In other words, the sustainable food movement is characterized as uncaring and elitist. A recent Newsweek piece titled "What Food Says About Class in America" described "a national phenomenon" of people seeking non-industrial foods because they believe that eating organically and locally helps farmers and farm animals while contributing to the health and well-being of their families and the planet.

This is simply a myth. How do you eat well? Share your ‘food rules’ Last year I published Food Rules, a short book offering 64 rules for eating well. Food Rules struck a chord with many people, who found that it helped them navigate what has become a treacherous food environment, whether in the supermarket or restaurant. Many of the rules were submitted by readers, and since publication I have received a number of excellent new ones. So I’ve decided to publish an expanded edition, with additional rules and also illustrations, which the painter Maira Kalman has agreed to create. The premise of Food Rules is that culture has much to teach us about how to choose, prepare, and eat food and that this wisdom is worth collecting and preserving before it disappears. In recent years, we’ve deferred to the voices of science and industry when it comes to eating, yet often their advice has served us poorly, or has merely confirmed the wisdom of our grandmothers after the fact.

Will you send me a food rule you have found memorable and useful?
