Carter and colleagues also found that the reduction of 14 %, the risk of type 2 diabetes was independent of weight loss.They concluded However : Increasing daily intake of green leafy vegetables can significantly reduce the risk for type 2 diabetes and should be further investigated. .

In their discussion, the authors wrote they think that will help fruits and vegetables, prevent chronic diseases, because they are rich in antioxidants, and in the case of green leafy vegetables like spinach, the impact on reducing the risk of type-2 diabetes in particular comes from its higher content of magnesium. They emphasized that their results support the idea that eat and it is not the isolated constituents of foods, such as antioxidants that benefit health studies of dietary supplements is not strong evidence for the prevention of diseases is shown.

The conference participants will take it with The Life Cycle of a Cancer Biomarkers .


Field of cancer researchnd Annual Oncology Biomarkers ConferenceGTCBio just announced its second annual report Oncology Biomarkers Conference will take place on January 19 to 20 2009 in Miami, Florida. – The conference participants will take it with ‘The Life Cycle of a Cancer Biomarkers ‘, examining the path from the identification of candidate biomarker, development through validation, to the hospital to be able to identify unmet needs and to awaken new discoveries back to the laboratory. This unique organization of the meetings so that participants see the interaction of the whole process.

One of the main implications of these results, said McNamee that behaviors and actions directly related to brain function. – Should understand teachers, caregivers and others that every young person matures at a different rate, they do not always respond like adults because their brains to stop working at the same level as an adult, she said. Responses and behaviors related to a certain situation are less easy for some adolescents to manage than others. .

Excess fat killing cells in obese people.. To date, a few hundred people transplants transplants of complexes of pancreatic cells, called islands. The islands are in the liver, where they implanted at first to make insulin, but over months or years their production often decreases. – ‘do By understanding how fat affects these cells, maybe we can improve islet transplant and it is a bit longer,’said Dr. Roger Unger, professor of internal medicine at UT Southwestern and senior author of the study.

A study physician payments drug companies.


A study physician payments drug companies, Grassley contacted universities, academic researchers, industry to disclose payments. He found that the universities do not verify the payment amounts researchers claimed. Moreover, they do not have the information to the public by the Times. If there is a doctor getting thousands of dollars from a drug company – payments, the impact of his objectivity – the only people outside the pharmaceutical industry never never know about it, J people in the then very university, said Grassley.

Around 30,000 years agore the closest relatives of currently living humans. They lived in Europe and parts of Asia until they died out about 30,000 years ago. For more than a century, paleontologists and anthropologists have sought to uncover their evolutionary relationship to modern humans. A pioneer in the field of ancient DNA research, made the first contribution to the understanding of our genetic relationship to Neandertals when he sequenced Neanderthal mitochondrial DNA in 1997. Together with the company 454 Life Sciences, Bo is now a new milestone in Neandertal has announced research. The two groups have sequenced a total of more than 3 billion bases of Neandertal DNA, generating a first draft sequence of the entire Neanderthal genome. Altogether, these fragments more than 60 percent of the entire Neanderthal genome.

During the study, the ongoing surveys and focus groups have not captured the whole picture of CRC awareness of the Navajo Nation, believes Sanderson the information it has can can serve as the basis by which future efforts to increase cancer awareness. Evaluate Two annual tribal festivals on the Navajo Reservation, only 16 % of respondents who were usually women in their forties, ever searched for CRC reported. Survey were Indian Health Service Indian Health Service hospitals in 2007 showed, however, that 55 % of the participants had heard about CRC screening, only 30 % had ever itself a screen. Among older tribal members polled in focus groups, almost half have never had a colorectal screen, says Sanderson. Summary No. Continue reading “Director of the Institute Department of Evolutionary GeneticsAnthropology?”

SARS vaccine that the nose the nose monkeys shows promise for humanA new SARS vaccine that is currently being tried in monkeys could one day protect people from the disease, scientists say. The vaccine is sprayed into the nose. To provide protection, the researchers say only one dose is needed.

The tests are conducted at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases , USA. , one, one of the team carrying out the research, said: This study shows that providing directly directly protect effectively in the respiratory tract primates from SARS With more research, we hope to develop a vaccine based on this approach, the be used to rapidly immunize first responders and other medical personnel, helping them control could be a possible outbreak. .
