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.

Posted: Friday, October 10, 2008
Exposure to common intestinal bacteria might inhibit the development of type 1 diabetes, according to a recent study. The study results lend support to the more general "hygiene hypothesis," and could potentially go a long way in explaining, and perhaps preventing, the development of type 1 diabetes.
