Depressed Wives at Higher Risk for Metabolic Syndrome
Posted: Sunday, March 08, 2009
Besides being more likely to suffer from depression, women in "strained" marriages are at higher risk for metabolic syndrome as well. This in turn makes these women more at risk for future incidence of cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

Pregnancy Increases The Risk of Depression For Those With Diabetes
Posted: Wednesday, March 04, 2009
Low-income pregnant women and new mothers with diabetes have nearly twice the risk of experiencing depression during and after pregnancy than women without diabetes, according to a new study.

Daily Consumption of DIET Soda Increases Risk of Type 2 Diabetes By 67%
Posted: Tuesday, February 24, 2009
Drinking diet soda at least daily is associated with significantly greater risks for select incident components of the metabolic syndrome (MetSyn) and type 2 diabetes, according to the results of an observational study.

Eggs Linked To Increased Diabetes Risk
Posted: Wednesday, February 18, 2009
In a long-term study of 57,000 U.S. adults, researchers found that those who ate an egg a day were 58 percent to 77 percent more likely than non-egg-eaters to develop type 2 diabetes.

Pancreatic Pathway a Newly Discovered Risk for Type 2 Diabetes
Posted: Saturday, February 14, 2009
Recent stem cell research at the University of California, San Diego, has uncovered a signaling pathway associated with the development of the pancreas, which has close ties to the onset of type 2 diabetes. The hope is that this research will lead to the ability to target the specific pathway to treat or prevent type 2 diabetes.

Frequent Sex and Masturbation In Young Adulthood Could Increase Prostate Cancer Risk
Posted: Tuesday, January 27, 2009
Frequent masturbation and heavy sexual activity, in young men, appears to increase the risk of developing prostate cancer later in life. The same researchers that came to this conclusion also found that sexual activity in men in their 40's and 50's has little effect on prostate cancer risk, and possibly helps prevent against the development of the common disease.

New Techniques Link Pre-Diabetes to Sleeping Disorders
Posted: Sunday, January 25, 2009
Using new advanced technological techniques, researchers have recently found convincing evidence that sleep disordered breathing (SDB) is closely linked to decreased insulin sensitivity, and other pre-diabetic conditions.

Possible Link Found Between Diabetes and Human Circadian Rhythms
Posted: Sunday, January 18, 2009
A new gene variant has been discovered that raises blood glucose levels through melatonin secretion. This finding possibly establishes a previously unknown link between human circadian rhythms (sleep-wake cycles, regulated by melatonin), and diabetes.

Protein Responds to Fat, But Not in Fat People
Posted: Tuesday, December 02, 2008
A protein produced in the liver has been found to appear in direct response to the consumption of fatty foods, preparing the body for the fats arrival. The same study showed, however, that obese individuals often lack normal levels of this protein, suggesting that the discovery of this protein's mechanism could lead to novel ways for treating the well-documented obesity epidemic.

The Banning of Fast Food Ads: Reducing Child Obesity, Stifling Capitalism?
Posted: Sunday, November 23, 2008
Obesity is an epidemic, and its rapid rise has closely coincided with the growth of the so-called "fast-food culture." It's been hotly debated for many years whether fast food advertisements, which are primarily aimed at children in the United States, are in large part responsible for rising obesity levels. A new study, the most comprehensive of its kind, has concluded that indeed this form of advertising plays an enormous role in obesity numbers, especially in children.
