Diet choice of animal species is highly variable. Some are specialists feeding only on one food source, such as a sugar-rich fruit or protein-rich meat. Other species, like humans, are generalists that can feed on different kinds of food sources. Because of these differences, animal species ingest different amounts of macronutrients, like carbohydrates and amino […]Continue Reading ...

Aug 14 2018 Most of us tend to think of sugar as a temptation that threatens our health.

[…]Continue Reading ...
August 13, 2018 A new LSU Pennington Biomedical Research Center study reveals that a novel biomarker might give us new answers necessary to creating a diagnostic tool for hypoglycemia-associated autonomic failure (HAAF). No objective diagnostic tool currently exists for this condition which, if left untreated, can lead to ever-worsening and possibly life-threatening episodes of dangerously […]Continue Reading ...
TUESDAY, July 24, 2018 — You’d expect big blood sugar fluctuations in people with diabetes. But for those without the disorder, blood sugar levels should remain fairly stable, right? Maybe not, says a new study. Researchers found some people who don’t have diabetes still have wild swings in their blood sugar levels after they eat. […]Continue Reading ...
(HealthDay)—People with type 1 diabetes who use marijuana may double their risk of developing a life-threatening complication, a new study suggests. Called diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), the condition occurs when there is not enough insulin to break down sugar in the body, so the body burns fat for fuel instead. This triggers a build-up of chemicals […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: CC0 Public Domain The BDA has called for sweeping changes to food marketing and product formulation, as new research by Cardiff University reveals the extent of misleading claims on sugar-rich cereals aimed at children. Analysis of packaging for the 13 top selling cereals, published in the British Dental Journal, has revealed: At the manufacturer’s […]Continue Reading ...
THURSDAY, Sept. 20, 2018 — There is considerable variability in the sugar content of yogurts, with very few yogurts qualifying as low-sugar, according to a study published in the August issue of BMJ Open. J. Bernadette Moore, Ph.D., from the University of Leeds in the United Kingdom, and colleagues conducted a cross-sectional survey of yogurt […]Continue Reading ...
Over the past 50 years researchers, clinicians, professional organizations, and health charities have waged war on sugar, calling for dietary recommendations to be changed and for a sugar tax on soft drinks and sweet treats in an effort to reduce obesity and cardiovascular diseases. In 2014, the WHO recommended that adults and children reduce their […]Continue Reading ...
Aug 20 2018 Dairy foods are popular among consumers, and sales gross more than $125 billion per year (IDFA, 2017). With dairy product popularity comes new demands from consumers for healthier, low-calorie products that taste the same as their higher calorie counterparts. In a report published in the Journal of Dairy Science researchers review the […]Continue Reading ...
