  2. Cheep News Now that I have your attention. I'd like to share some health topics that hopefully you can consider and maybe try and implement into your life. Long Live Cheep! ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Researchers at the University of Birmingham have shown that increasing the levels of active vitamin D can help to optimise muscle strength in humans. The team hope that the findings will inform the design of future supplementation studies, and begin to answer questions as to the optimal levels of vitamin D required for healthy muscles. The study, published in PLOS ONE, builds on previous knowledge showing levels of inactive vitamin D to be associated with a lack of muscle mass. The research is the result of a cutting edge technique that allowed both active and inactive forms of vitamin D to be assessed alongside their impact on various muscle functions. Dr Zaki Hassan-Smith, from the University of Birmingham, explained, "We have a good understanding of how vitamin D helps bone strength, but we still need to learn more about how it works for muscles. When you look at significant challenges facing healthcare providers across the world, such as obesity and an ageing population, you can see how optimising muscle function is of great interest." "Previous studies have tested for the inactive forms of vitamin D in the bloodstream, to measure vitamin D deficiency. Here, we were able to develop a new method of assessing multiple forms of vitamin D, alongside extensive testing of body composition, muscle function and muscle gene expression." 116 healthy volunteers, aged between 20-74, were recruited to the trial. Participants had both active and inactive levels of vitamin D measured alongside physical characteristics including body fat and 'lean mass', a measure of muscle bulk. Women with a healthy body composition, and lower body fat, were less likely to have high levels of inactive vitamin D, a marker of vitamin D deficiency. This was echoed by the finding that levels of inactive vitamin D were lower in women with increased body fat. This would suggest a relationship between vitamin D and body composition. However, the active form of vitamin D was not associated with body fat, but was associated with lean mass. Individuals with an increased lean mass, and muscle bulk, had a higher level of active vitamin D in the bloodstream. Dr Hassan Smith added, "By looking at multiple forms in the same study, we can say that it is a more complex relationship that previously thought. It may be that body fat is linked to increased levels of inactive vitamin D, but lean mass is the key for elevated levels of active vitamin D. It is vital to understand the complete picture, and the causal mechanisms at work, so we can learn how to supplement vitamin D intake to enhance muscle strength." In this study some of the positive associations between active vitamin D and muscle bulk were not seen in men. Future studies with larger cohorts will help to identify if this is due to biological differences. The team will now work alongside international collaborators to further investigate the mechanisms at work through lab-based studies and clinical trials. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ We need the D people!

  3. We are back again with your daily update on the science world. I, cheepheep, your host, generously shares with you some useful information that could help you implement some positive habits into your lifestyle. Read on.....sorry for the cringe-worthy intro. People are easily pulled into binge culture's quick-fix obsession with junk-food. But, according to a study published in Frontiers in Behavioral Neuroscience, they might just as easily be able to pull themselves out of it. Laura Corbit, assistant professor at the University of Sydney, and her team wondered how one might counteract unhealthy eating habits. They were curious to find out how food cues, such as billboards and commercials, affect our decisions about where, what and how much to eat. How does our environment shape how we eat? In order to figure out useful strategies against obesity and metabolic disease, they used lab rats to conduct a series of experiments replete with oreos, pringles, jelly snakes and chow. They showed that environments where tasty high-fat and high-sugar treats were routinely consumed induced habitual control: animals lost the ability to make volitional nutritional choices based on the current value of food. But the study also showed that rats could easily be brought out of this state. For people, habitual behavior means that eating patterns are not necessarily dictated by conscientious weight regulation and health concerns, but also by external food cues that shape and perpetuate certain eating habits: a world where McDonalds billboards loom large at every corner, luring you in with the promise of cheap, high-fat and high-sugar food. A first experiment backed this idea up by looking at volitional versus habitual control in rats. Animals were initially given repeated exposures to junk-food or bland chow environments. After being food-deprived, they were trained to press levers that provided either sugar water or pellets. Then, once they were full, they were once again placed in junk-food and bland chow environments in order to see whether these distinct contexts would affect their food-seeking behavior. This first experiment showed that a junk-food environment caused rats to exhibit a more habitual mode of behavior than a bland chow environment. But could aspects of the environment also reverse this habitual behavior? In a second experiment, the rats underwent the same procedures as in the first experiment. This time, however, distinct sound cues were played whenever rats were placed in junk-food or bland chow contexts, creating specific environmental cues associated with specific food types. The researchers found that the cue played in the bland chow context improved sensitivity to the devaluation of food, when rats were subsequently placed in the junk food context after having been fed. A sound cue paired with bland food is all it took to take rats out of a habitual mode of behavior and back into a volitional mind frame. The idea that we control how, when, and what we eat assumes -- wrongly -- that we are always able-minded enough to make measured, healthy decisions. Our best intentions could be assailed by a constant stream of sensory information. If the frequently habitual nature seen in rats is translated to people, this study offers encouraging insight. The researchers suggest using simple interventions, such as reminders of how unhealthy certain foods are or interrupting the automatic processing of junk-food cues. A number of smartphone apps have already been developed to stymie the consumption of unhealthy food. Equally, simply putting up signs that point out healthy food options in a food court can be an effective way of bringing us into a volitional state of mind. As a corrective to obesity and metabolic disease, humans can come up with their own preventive cues, which may jolt them out of habit and into health. Hope it helps. Discuss Now! source : Frontiers
  4. Hey, Are there any runners that make the forum rounds? If so, how long have you been an active runner and why do you enjoy it? I've been running for about 4 years now and it is about the best thing evar! Basically I find it to be the easiest form of exercise out there with little to no equipment other than your clothes and your shoes. And... it is soooo good for you!
  5. Hello everyone! First of all, I'm not sure if I need to open this topic at 'Science & Space', 'Technology' or 'Food and Drink', so this topic could be on the wrong section, sorry. Tomorrow I have to do a debate. The topic is 'Genetically modified food is healthy', do you agree or disagree? I have to collect some good arguments and articles to form a good opinion about this topic. So, I want to ask you guys to give your opinion with good arguments and eventually an article to base your arguments on. That'd really help me. Kind regards, Gaskarth c:
  6. I remember a few years ago there were some pretty heated and lengthy discussions about the upcoming Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). At the risk of stirring the pot and pages of lengthy discussions about the pros and cons, I'm curious to find out if anyone's views have changed.I've been trying to listen to news from both left and right leaning media sources to see what the overall shift in perception has been. It's been interesting to say the least. So have your views changed one way or the other on "Obamacare"? Why or why not? If your new to the discussion and want some background on previous conversations, here are some links to prior posts. http://fearless-assassins.com/topic/6777-obama-care-in-the-usa/?hl=obama http://fearless-assassins.com/topic/12186-socialism/?hl=+health%20+care
  7. There are some exercises that you just can't do often enough. Three examples: wall slides, thoracic rotations, and the passive-lock single-leg hip raise. Unusual names, yes. But while you may not be familiar with these moves, chances are you should be doing them every day. Why? Because they help offset the toll that working on a computer -- or even a mobile device -- takes on your body. Specifically, that toll is poor posture, which frequently leads to neck, shoulder, and back pain. And because sitting and slumping as you type, surf, or text can consume hours of your day, the more frequently you perform these moves, the better. The best part: You can do these no-weight, no-sweat exercises anywhere. http://www.thepostgame.com/blog/training-day/201109/exercises-you-should-do-every-day
