Weight Status Among Adolescents in States That Govern Competitive Food Nutrition Content - 0 views

  •  
    Scary study.  This study seems to show that state laws are the way to reduce BMI.  BMI is not a reliable measurement of Percent fat.  So, I question this study all together.  But their conclusion seems to be to attack obesity through legislation.  You should attack obesity through education.

  •  
    Those with higher vitamin D levels are associated with lower weight gain postmenopausal. Now, this could be due to increased outside exercise and activity.  However, due the NF-KappaB inhibition and resultant inflammation, it makes since that vitamin D reduces weight gain.  Plus it improves Insulin function and helps to control blood glucose.

  •  
    This study looked at declining testosterone in Japanese men. The significant decrease was found in those men between 20 and through 40s.  Beyond which statistical decline was not found.

Reduction of Inflammatory Cytokine Concentrations and Improvement of Endothelial Functi... - 0 views

  •  
    adipose tissue releases inflammatory markers (cytokines IL-6, TNF-alpha, V-CAM-1, ICAM-1, and P-selectin). Associated endovascular disfunction and eventually cardiovascular disease.  A direct link between obesity induced inflammation and endovascular dysfunction.  Weight loss in these obese women reduced secretion of the associated inflammatory cytokines and thus decreased vascular dysfunction.

  •  
    Weight loss improves lipid profile.  Total cholesterol, LDL, and triglycerides were reduced with weight loss of 5-10%.  However, weight loss exceeding 10% resulted in greater reduction and longer maintenance of the improved lipid panel results.
