Belly Fat is Dangerous in People with a Normal Weight

submitted by: admin on 11/24/2019
  Even people with a normal weight who have excess belly fat are at 2.75 times the risk for cardiovascular death and 2.1 times the risk of all cause mortality according to researchers at the Mayo Clinic. Information from the NHANES study showed that an abnormal waist to hip ratio is a powerful predictive statistic. Abdominal fat is correlated with the...

Bone Marrow Stem Cells are Multipotent

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
  Studies on mice using adult stem cells derived from bone marrow showed that, when cultured in a special growth medium, have the ability to develop into multiple specialized tissues. A subset of these cells, called CD34+ is multipotent, meaning they can develop into many different tissues, do not lead to the development of teratomas, and eliminate the...

Connection of Low Birth Weight and Obesity

submitted by: admin on 06/14/2024
Research continues to show just how important it is for pregnant women to eat a healthy diet and live a healthy lifestyle.  An article in the journal "Brain Research" states: Nutritionally deprived newborns and fetuses have less neurons in the region of the brain that controls food intake.  Because of the lack of neurons these babies are programmed...

Cooking with Dry Heat may Cause Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
  A study published in the August issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences showed that diets high in methylglyoxal, which is produced by dry heat, caused mice to develop early insulin resistance and increased body fat over four generations. This did not happen in the control mice not fed methylglyoxal. The abdominal fat in these mice...

Exercise is Powerful Anti-Aging Medicine

submitted by: admin on 09/21/2013
Stem cells accumulate in skeletal muscle following exercise and release growth factors to spur regeneration according to a study published in PLoS online. Stem cells become deficient with aging so exercise is the best way to preserve muscle as we age.        

Fish Oil Derivative Cures Cancer

submitted by: admin on 06/24/2016
  An article published in the journal, Blood, reported that a compound from fish oil targeted and killed stem cells of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) in mice. They were completely cured of CML and with no relapse with a daily injection for just one week! The compound stimulated the p53 tumor suppressor gene that regulates the response to DNA damage...

Is Getting Cancer Just Bad Luck?

submitted by: admin on 01/22/2015
Reseachers from John Hopkins Cancer created a statistical model measuring the proportion of cancer incidence caused by random mutations during stem cell division; this was published in the journal, Science in January of 2015. They concluded that 2/3 of cancers can be explained by "bad luck." What they really determined was an association rather than...

Obesity: Can it Be Caused by Viral Infections?

submitted by: admin on 06/14/2024
A common viruses stimulate stem cells to turn into fat cells! This causes obesity in animal studies. Now Big Pharma is looking at vaccines; don’t hold your breath! The workup for obesity is getting even more complex.

Stem Cells Help Heart Attack Victims

submitted by: admin on 10/16/2013
Fourteen patients were randomized to see if adipose-derived adult stem cells would help limit the damage from an acute heart attack. Infarct size was decreased by 50%, the perfusion defect was 17% smaller, and the left ventriclular ejection fraction was increased about 6% better than the control group. Stem cell vocabulary was reviewed and highlighted that...

Treating Alzheimer's Disease with Light

submitted by: admin on 05/29/2016
A study published in the January 2016 issue of Frontiers in Neuroscience reports that near infrared light can lessen the behavioral deficits associated with Alzheimer's disease but also has neuroprotective effects and can slow the underlying death of brain neurons. Considering that treatment of Alzheimer's disease is all but non-existant, this is big...

Why Belly Fat is not All Bad

submitted by: admin on 11/27/2013
When I was in medical school the omentum, that fatty membrane in the abdomen that covers the abdominal cavity and its organs, was believed to be no more than a repository for fat. Today researchers have discovered that it is a organ that regulates immune T cells and is a rich repository of stem cells that are necessary for organ repair and regeneration. It may...
