New study reveals that healthy plant-based diets are associated with a lower risk of developing diabetes
Harvard School of Public Health, April 8, 2022
New research published in Diabetologia (the journal of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes [EASD]) finds that the consumption of healthy plant-based foods, including fruits, vegetables, nuts, coffee, and legumes, is associated with a lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes (T2D) in generally healthy people and support their role in diabetes prevention. The study aimed to identify the metabolite profiles related to different plant-based diets and investigate possible associations between those profiles and the risk of developing T2D.
Vitamin K2 brain benefit
Al-Maarefa University (Saudi Arabia), April 8 2022.
Results from a study suggest that vitamin K2 could help protect the brain from aging-associated disorders. The study’s investigators remarked that people with severe dementia and individuals at an early stage of Alzheimer’s disease have an increased risk of reduced serum vitamin K levels. Rats that received vitamin K2 had less cognitive impairment, depression and anxiety, and better spatial memory and learning ability compared to untreated animals. When the two groups’ maze performances at the end of the treatment period were compared with untreated young adult rats, older animals that received MK-7 performed similarly to the younger rats, while the performance of older untreated rats was significantly lower.
Research finds that wisdom is a matter of both heart and mind
University of Waterloo (Canada) April 7, 2022
The fluctuations of your heartbeat may affect your wisdom, according to new research from the University of Waterloo. The study suggests that heart rate variation and thinking process work together to enable wise reasoning about complex social issues. “Our research shows that wise reasoning is not exclusively a function of the mind and cognitive ability,” says Prof. Grossmann. “We found that people who have greater heart rate variability and who are able to think about social problems from a distanced viewpoint demonstrate a greater capacity for wise reasoning.” A growing consensus among philosophers and cognitive scientists defines wise judgment to include the ability to recognize the limits of one’s knowledge, to be aware of the varied contexts of life and how they may unfold over time, to acknowledge others’ points of view, and to seek reconciliation of opposing viewpoints.
Too much sitting may shorten your life, study suggests
University of Sao Paulo School of Medicine April 7, 2022
A new study finds that sitting less may extend your life. Brazilian researchers who analyzed data from 54 countries linked sitting for more than three hours a day to 3.8 percent of deaths from all causes. Limiting sitting time to less than three hours a day would increase a person’s life expectancy by an average of 0.2 years—or more than two months, the researchers said. The study authors estimated the effects of less time spent sitting, regardless of moderate to vigorous physical activity. Even a modest, 10 percent reduction in sitting time—for instance, 30 fewer minutes a day—could have an immediate impact, the researchers said.
Depressive disorders can lead to changes in immune cells
Dresden University of Technology and University of Zurich (Germany), April 9.2022
Loss of interest, joylessness, lack of drive and increased fatigability—all these complaints are among the main symptoms of depression, a mental illness affecting an estimated 5% of the population in Germany. Pathophysiological features of depressive disorders often include low-grade inflammation and elevated glucocorticoid output. In a new study published in the journal Translational Psychiatry, researchers establish for the first time a link between depressive disorders and mechanical changes in blood cells.
