By co-transplanting Sertoli cells together with insulin-producing cells into diabetic rats, his recent research demonstrated that insulin-producing cells can survive and can protect the rats against diabetes. By substituting the Sertoli cells from adult pigs, instead of those from baby pigs, Dr. White may have made a medical breakthrough.

StockInterview: How long have you been involved in researching the reversal of diabetes?

Dr. David White: I first started my interest in treating diabetes by transplantation of insulin cells when I was on faculty at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom. That would have been about 1996. I guess I’ve been doing this now for over 10 years.

Children need Exercise to Prevent Type II Diabetes - Richard Simmons on NBC's Today Show Agrees

Children need Exercise to Prevent Type II Diabetes - Richard Simmons on NBC's Today Show Agrees

Richard Simmons- Totally Tonin' + Bonus 2 Toning Rings DVD

Childhood obesity has become epidemic that the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) says that one in three American children born in 2000 will develop type II diabetes. This has prompted much concern, and even on NBC’s Today show, fitness guru, Richard Simmons, reported that he will be going to Washington D.C. for a hearing to add exercise as mandatory for children on the No Child Left Behind Law.

Richard Simmons is on the right track by getting kids to have physical education in schools. While many of the schools are struggling to keep up with the new No Child Left Behind Law, they have cut out or greatly reduced the amount of physical education to increase teaching to meet the expectations of this law. With many households that have both parents working, it becomes increasingly difficult for children to have a chance to get physically active.

Researchers from the University of Missouri-Columbia report in a study that, yes, exercising is an important part in the prevention of type II diabetes. As little as 15 minutes of invigorating “acute” exercise a day can make a big difference in a child’s health. The study will be published in the American Journal of Physiology-Cell.

Two mice and rat studies have found that CLA, an essential amino acid, helped to aid in weight loss. The research also shows some undesirable side effects that may make it not safe for people. Person that might be considering taking CLA as a supplement should consult their doctor before taking this supplement. The mouse study was first reported in the current issue of Journal of Lipid Research. The rat study was reported in the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry.

CLA is found naturally in trace amounts in beef, lamb, and in milk. There are synthetic forms of CLA available on the market that can be taken as a supplement. CLA is currently being marketed as a way to burn body fat, and some are saying that they reduce the risk of developing diabetes and some cancers.

Treatment For Diabetes Could Involve Stem Cells From Mother – Maternal Cells Could Regenerate Damaged Pancreatic Tissue-Diabetic

Treatment For Diabetes Could Involve Stem Cells From Mother – Maternal Cells Could Regenerate Damaged Pancreatic Tissue-Diabetic

Stem Cells

New research suggests that it may be possible to regenerate tissue in the damaged pancreas of type-1 diabetics by using stem cells from the mother. The scientists were not seeking a treatment for diabetes when they stumbled on this possible treatment, but were interested in determining if the maternal cells were involved in diabetes.

"My initial theory was that perhaps, in some situations, too many mother cells cross over to the fetus at the wrong time, becoming beta cells that make insulin in the child,” says J. Lee Nelson, M.D. “Could diabetes result because the child lost tolerance to those cells because they are genetically half foreign? Our research disproved this”.

Obesity - Doctors from UK suggest putting Warning labels on Clothing for Obese people with Help Hotline Attached

Doctors from UK suggest putting Warning labels on Clothing for Large people with Help Hotline Attached

This is not the Actual Warning Label

Obesity has been on the rise considerably in the United Kingdom (UK) since the 1980’s. A study reports on the current trends and suggests preventive measures that the UK could take to slow down the obesity epidemic. The study was first reported in the British Medical Journal in Volume 333 pp 1261-4.

Naveed Sattar, a professor of metabolic medicine along with his colleagues report that by 2010, approximately one third of all adults in the UK will be considered obese. Obesity is calculated by Body Mass Index rating (BMI). If a person has a BMI rating of over 30 they are considered obese. They warn that over half of the UK population will have a BMI rating of over 25 and will increase their chance of dying younger due to weight related health conditions.
