Surprising Research ! Link between Saturated Fats And Heart Disease Questioned. According to The Times, minutes from the saturated fats working group of the scientific advisory committee on nutrition (SACN) say the decision was made to re-examine government advice on saturated fats “in the context of recent meta-analyses that have reported no significant associations between saturated fats and cardiovascular disease”.

Food Standards Scotland also requested a review. Speaking to the paper, lead cardiologist Aseem Malhotra said: “I don’t think there is any good evidence that eating saturated fats causes cardiovascular disease and there should not be any limit. We should instead base the official advice on the type of foods people should be eating. “Saturated fats has been wrongly demonized because of poor science.

The evidence is accumulating that sugar is the No 1 dietary culprit driving cardiovascular disease.” The new review will look at the consumption of saturated fats in relation to overall mortality rates, heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, and cancer. In Fight Against Obesity, The U.S. Is Failing Women. About 41 percent of women and 35 percent of men are obese, according to survey data collected as recently as 2014 and reported in one of the studies.A decade earlier, about 38 percent of women and 34 percent of men were obese, the study found.

Only the increase for women was large enough to be sure it wasn’t due to chance. Over this same period, obesity rates for teens rose from about 17 percent to 21 percent, CDC researchers report in the second study. “The most recent data before this point showed no increases overall in youth, men or women over the previous decade,” said Cynthia Ogden, a CDC researcher who worked on both studies. “These trends are not explained by changes in age or educational levels in the population or by changes in the distribution of race-ethnic groups in the population or changes in smoking status,” Ogden added by email.

Globally, 1.9 billion adults are overweight or obese, according to the World Health Organization. Does Salt Make You Fat ? New Research About Salt And Weight Gain. Many people are wondering about the link between salt and weight gain (or weight loss) so they are asking numerous questions: Can Salt Prevent You From Losing Weight ?

Does Salt Make You Fat ? New Research About Salt And Weight Gain

Can Eating Salt Prevent Weight Loss ? Does salt make you fat ? A New Australian Research may have the answer to all these questions.Excess fat consumption has been linked to the development of obesity. Fat and salt are a common and appetitive combination in food; however, the effect of either on food intake is unclear. Fat taste sensitivity has been negatively associated with dietary fat intake, but how fat taste sensitivity influences the intake of fat within a meal has, to our knowledge, not yet been investigated. The goals of this new study were to investigate the effects of both fat and salt on ad libitum food intake and, second, to investigate the effects of fat taste sensitivity on satiation responses to fat and whether this was affected by salt.

Have You Ever Heard About Fat Virus ? Virus In Chicken Linked To Obesity. Recently, there has been research examining the connection between poultry consumption and weight gain.

Have You Ever Heard About Fat Virus ? Virus In Chicken Linked To Obesity

One study out of the Netherlands examining about 4,000 people, correlated chicken consumption with weight gain. Another study followed 89,000 people in four other countries and found that animal protein intake was associated with long-term weight gain, and poultry was the worst, with 40 percent more weight gain than red meat or processed meat. What makes poultry so bad? Yes, chickens are fatty these days because of the way we’ve genetically manipulated them—up to ten times more fat and calories than they used to have—but one bizarre theory postulated that it might be due to an obesity-causing chicken virus. In one study, one in five obese humans tested positive to the chicken virus SMAM-1, with those exposed to the chicken virus averaging 33 pounds heavier than those testing negative.

SMAM-1 was the first chicken virus to be associated with human obesity, but not the last. Count Bites Not Calories ! Wearable Technology To Lose Weight. Related Tags:Wearable Technology To Lose WeightWearable Device To Lose WeightWearable Device To Lose Weight Weight Loss Device.

New Study: Fish oil transforms fat-storage cells into fat-burning cells. Kyoto University researchers have found that fish oil transforms fat-storage cells into fat-burning cells, which may reduce weight gain in middle age.

New Study: Fish oil transforms fat-storage cells into fat-burning cells

Fish oil activates receptors in the digestive tract, fires the sympathetic nervous system, and induces storage cells to metabolize fat. The team explains in Scientific Reports that fish oil activates receptors in the digestive tract, fires the sympathetic nervous system, and induces storage cells to metabolize fat. Fat tissues don't all store fat. So-called "white" cells store fat in order to maintain energy supply, while "brown" cells metabolize fat to maintain a stable body temperature. Brown cells are abundant in babies but decrease in number with maturity into adulthood. A third type of fat cell -- "beige" cells -- have recently been found in humans and mice, and have shown to function much like brown cells. The scientists investigated whether the number of these beige cells could be increased by taking in certain types of foods.
