Overeating may be more closely linked to the same responses that people become addicted to desire drugs. Researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory looked at how the brain and the stomach work together with emotions to cause a person to overeat. The report was first presented in the October 17th issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences and also online in PNAS Early Edition in the October 2nd issue.

The researchers found that the brain circuits that create the desire for an obese person to overeat is the same circuitry as a person that craves drugs. These circuits are responsible for soothing negative emotions which may be the reason many obese people overeat.

A major study from Karolinska Institutet in Sweden shows that kidney cancer can help be prevented by eating fatty fish on a regular basis. This study focused on 90,000 Swedish women that were asked questions about their diet. They also study the women on mammography in correlation to diets. The data was collected from 1987 – 2004.

If women ate at least one portion of fatty fish in a week they reduced their risk of renal cancer by 74 percent compared to women that never ate fish. The women that did not provide follow-up information about the fish eating women were still at a 40 percent reduction in getting renal cancer.

"This is the first time that a link between the consumption of fatty fish and renal cancer has been studied," says Professor Alicja Wolk, one of the scientists working with the study. "The reason previous studies have been unable to demonstrate a link between fish consumption and renal cancer is that they made no distinction between fatty and non-fatty fish."

Researchers say that women who consumed fatty fish in their diet had a lower risk of cancer of the kidney. This is more good news for people who like or eat fish regularly. Previous studies did not show the relation because they did not distinguish between fatty fish and lean fish, according to the report.

The fatty cold water fish have significantly more of the omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic and docosahexaneoic acid, plus more vitamin D. In fact, these fish have concentrations of omega-3 of 20 to 30 times that of lean fish. These fatty acids have been shown to delay the development of cancer. Also, fatty fish have a higher concentration of vitamin D, up to 5 times higher, according to the researchers.

Weight Loss in Green Tea

Weight Loss in Green Tea

This article explains a few things about Green Tea, and if you're interested, then this is worth reading, because you can never tell what you don't know.

Over the past few years, green tea and its connection with weight loss has long been the center of various clinical studies. Positive effects of green tea on weight loss have been discovered in recent years.

Studies show that the relation between green tea and weight loss are substantially linked together through the plant’s thermogenic properties. Thermogenesis is the process by which the body produces heat by speeding up metabolism, burning calories,and breaking down fat. Certain substances in green tea are believed to help in the body’s thermogenesis, thus contributing to weight loss.

Low Glycemic Diet + Weight Loss Plan

Low Glycemic Diet + Weight Loss Plan

The glycemic index is a system for classifying carbohydrate-containing foods according to how fast they raise blood-glucose levels inside the body. In simplest terms, foods with a low glycemic value generate small fluctuations in blood glucose and insulin levels. This makes them much more beneficial than foods with a high glycemic value that raise the blood glucose and insulin levels faster.

The glycemic index method classifies carbohydrates according to their effect on blood-glucose instead of according to their chemical structure of either simple (Simple carbohydrates are sugars, like glucose, fructose and lactose.) carbohydrates or complex (Complex carbohydrates are starches and fiber; wholegrain breads, pasta, rice, beans, fruits, and vegetables.) carbohydrates.
