Obesity Research: Newly discovered hormone mimics the effects of exercise ♦ Reducing energy efficiency boosts calorie burning ♦ Molecular Link between Obesity,Type 2 Diabetes ♦ Plus More

Newly discovered hormone mimics the effects of exercise Scientists have discovered a new hormone that fights the weight gain caused by a high-fat Western diet and normalizes the metabolism -- effects commonly associated with exercising. Continue Reading

Reducing energy efficiency boosts calorie burning in muscle  targeted approach that overrides muscles' intrinsic energy efficiency and allows muscle to burn more energy, even during low to moderate exercise, has been developed by scientists. The new findings might provide the basis of a therapy that could help people get a head start on losing weight by helping to overcome the body's natural resistance to weight loss. Continue Reading
Molecular Link between Obesity,Type 2 Diabetes Reveals Potential Therapy   The inflammatory molecule LTB4 promotes insulin resistance, a first step in developing type 2 diabetes, researchers have discovered. What's more, the team found that genetically removing the cell receptor that responds to LTB4, or blocking it with a drug, improves insulin sensitivity in obese mice ,Continue Reading
Level of pollutants accumulated in the body linked to obesity levels Scientists have confirmed that there is a relation between the levels of certain environmental pollutants that a person accumulates in his or her body and his or her level of obesity. Subjects with more pollutants in their bodies tend to have higher levels of cholesterol and triglycerides, which are important risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Continue Reading
Psychology of food choice: Challenging the status quo  Researchers are challenging conventional beliefs about the effectiveness of traditional strategies for encouraging healthy eating. Researchers tackle issues such as the harmfulness of weight stigma, encouraging healthy choices, and strategies to help children and teens  Continue Reading
