The more you run, the denser your bones will be

The more you run, the denser your bones will be

Spanish researchers have analysed the effect of endurance running training on the stiffness index, a variable that is directly related to bone quality.

Humans breast milk, the most complex of all mammals

Humans may have the most complex breast milk of all mammals. Milk from a human mother contains more than 200 different sugar molecules, way above the average 30-50 found in, for example, mouse or cow milk.

Study claims that eating more vegetables can be harmful for the environment

A new Carnegie Mellon study casts doubts upon the longstanding belief that a vegetarian diet is less harmful to the environment than a diet that contains meat.

Experts are increasingly inclined to believe that there is no such thing as a one-size-fits all medicine. We all have our own body chemistry, genetic makeup, health status and lifestyle, and it is only logical that all these factors would affect our health and response to treatment in different ways. Building on this observation, a team of scientists in Israel have tried to determine how different types of food affected 800 patients with different profiles.  Leer ms

Study finds that some commercial coffee brands contain high levels of mycotoxins

An analysis of one hundred coffees sold in Spain has confirmed the presence of mycotoxins -toxic metabolites produced by fungi. In addition, five of the samples that were tested were found to contain ochratoxin A, the only legislated mycotoxin, in amounts that exceeded maximum permitted levels. While the authors point out that these results are not alarming, they do recommend assessing the risk that exposure to mycotoxins from coffee poses to the general public.  Leer ms
