Harvard elimina la leche y demás lácteos de la dieta saludable Los expertos en nutrición e investigadores de la universidad la realizaron una modificación de la pirámide alimenticia, basada en una nutrición sana, libre de la presión política y grupos de la industria que podrían verse afectados. La Escuela de Harvard de Salud Pública eliminó la leche de su guía de alimentación saludable, llamada Healthy Eating Plate, sustituyéndola por agua, preferentemente. Con esto, Harvard envió un mensaje fuerte al USDA (Departamento de Agricultura de los Estados Unidos) y expertos en todo el mundo con el lanzamiento de su guía, misma que reemplaza la pirámide alimenticia. Los expertos en nutrición e investigadores de la universidad la realizaron, basada en una nutrición sana, libre de la presión política y grupos de la industria que podrían verse afectados. La mayor prueba de ello es la ausencia total de productos lácteos, debido a que “un alto consumo de estos alimentos aumenta significativamente los riesgos de padecer cáncer de próstata y cáncer de ovario”.

Livsmedelsdatabasen Livsmedelsdatabasen ska spegla det svenska livsmedelsutbudet. Databasen måste ständigt uppdateras eftersom en rad nya livsmedel lanseras varje år samtidigt som ingredienser och tillverkningsprocesser byts ut i befintliga livsmedel.

Food, Nutrition and Consumer Services Study: Monsanto's Genetically Engineered Grasses Will 'Wreak Havoc' on Native Species An escaped strain of transgenic grass bred for golf courses could wreak havoc on native grassland species in the northwestern United States, ecologists are warning. The strain, which was growing in a test plot in Oregon and hadn't yet been approved for use by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), has now been detected in the wild, up to 3.8 kilometres outside the test area. While the transgenic component of the plant might not in itself pose a problem, the hardy strain could replace many other native grasses if it gains a foothold, ecologists say Scientists working for the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in Corvallis, Oregon, have been monitoring the region surrounding the experimental plots where the plants, called creeping bentgrass (Agrostis stolonifera) were being grown

The Top 10 Psychology Studies of 2010 The end of 2010 fast approaches, and I'm thrilled to have been asked by the editors of Psychology Today to write about the Top 10 psychology studies of the year. I've focused on studies that I personally feel stand out, not only as examples of great science, but even more importantly, as examples of how the science of psychology can improve our lives. Each study has a clear "take home" message, offering the reader an insight or a simple strategy they can use to reach their goals , strengthen their relationships, make better decisions, or become happier. If you extract the wisdom from these ten studies and apply them in your own life, 2011 just might be a very good year. 1) How to Break Bad Habits If you are trying to stop smoking , swearing, or chewing your nails, you have probably tried the strategy of distracting yourself - taking your mind off whatever it is you are trying not to do - to break the habit.

The Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry - Dietary supplements of mixtures of indispensable amino acids lacking threonine, phenylalanine or histidine increase the activity of hepatic threonine dehydrogenase, phenylalanine hydroxylase or histidase, respecti Received 18 July 2000; received in revised form 4 January 2001; accepted 9 January 2001. Experiments were carried out to determine whether the addition of a mixture of indispensable amino acids (IAA) lacking in threonine, phenylalanine or histidine, respectively, to a nutritionally complete diet would increase the hepatic activities of the rate-limiting enzymes for catabolism of threonine, phenylalanine or histidine and prevent the adverse effects of the amino acid on growth when the dietary level of the amino acid is excessive. Week old Leghorn chicks were fed semi-purified diets containing 19% crude protein to which were added no IAA supplement or 10% crude protein from an IAA mix and 5 graded levels of either L-threonine, L-phenylalanine or L-histidine in a 2 × 5 factorial arrangement of treatments. Each amino acid was investigated in a separate experiment involving four replicate pens (seven chicks each) per diet.
