If you want smarter and more attentive children in school, spend more on school breakfast and lunch programs and less on computer gadgets.

Omega-3 fatty acids and polyphenols are good for the skin since they reduce inflammation in the dermis.  Putting them on the surface will have little effect because of the difficulty of penetrating the epidermis to reach the dermis.

I published the study that demonstrated the same fact in 2007.  I guess that was too long ago if you only include articles published in the last five years.

This only indicates treatment of obesity is lot more complicated than simple political solutions.

Here is an excellent study that barely gets any media mention compared to a pathetic study that had the opposite results because in the media it is “fear talks and science walks”.

If you want to reduce insulin resistance, then follow the dietary guidelines of the Joslin Diabetes Center at Harvard Medical School.  They are essentially identical to the Zone Diet.

Drop the whole grains and replace them with non-starchy vegetables, and you get better results.  You also have the Zone Diet.

Before placing sensors in helmets, I would require every athlete in a contact sport to have an AA/EPA ratio test done to ensure if there is a concussion, they have the internal ability to reduce the inflammatory damage.

With a past history of concussions, stepping out of harm’s way makes good sense.

One of the problems of such single-food focused studies is that they don’t look at the overall diet.  Seniors have a more difficult time chewing protein, which has positive metabolic effects.  Without the necessary protein to prevent constant hunger, increased consumption of carbohydrates and fat is a likely outcome thus causing the increased fat accumulation.
