Extracts from cinnamon and pomegranates show antimicrobial activities against food-poisoning bacteria

Foodborne illness is a major concern for the food industry and regulatory agencies around the world. The most common cause of foodborne illness, or food poisoning, is consuming spoiled foods or products contaminated by pathogenic microorganisms. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), foodborne illness is a costly public health problem that, while preventable, … Continue reading Extracts from cinnamon and pomegranates show antimicrobial activities against food-poisoning bacteria

Study links consumption of high-fructose corn syrup to intestinal tumor growth

A recent study has found that high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS), a common sweetener used in soft drinks, promotes the growth of intestinal tumors. Excessive consumption of products sweetened with HFCS is also linked to obesity and metabolic syndrome. According to the researchers behind the study, the epidemic of obesity seen around the world today is primarily caused … Continue reading Study links consumption of high-fructose corn syrup to intestinal tumor growth

Compound in soy found to turn male fish into “females”

Japanese researchers have discovered that male fish fed soy isoflavones, which Americans also eat, eventually turn into “females.” Music to ears of the transgender cult, soybean compounds mimic female hormones to such a degree that consuming them regularly, as many people do, chemically damages male hormones like testosterone, effectively turning them into female hormones like estrogen. The … Continue reading Compound in soy found to turn male fish into “females”

Flaxseed proteins are great sources of antioxidant peptides, reports study

The Research Consortium Program for Agricultural Product Development is a joint research effort from the South Australian government, academic institutions and various stakeholders from the agriculture and food sector industries. The researchers … Continue reading From trash to treasure: Scientists to turn food waste into “high-value products” for new markets like cosmetics and packaging

Researchers discover that Kefir (fermented yogurt) can halt cytokine storms observed during SARS-CoV-2 infections

One of the most important areas of scientific research for combating SARS-CoV-2 involves understanding cytokines and mitigating cytokine storm. Cytokines are cell signaling molecules that facilitate immune responses. These molecules communicate between cells to stimulate the movement of immune responsive cells toward sites of inflammation and infection. Israeli scientists have found that yogurt (kefir) can halt … Continue reading Researchers discover that Kefir (fermented yogurt) can halt cytokine storms observed during SARS-CoV-2 infections

Lycopene is a promising nutrient that can prevent gastric diseases associated with H. pylori

Helicobacter pylori is a spiral-shaped bacterium that grows in your digestive tract. An opportunistic pathogen, it is considered to be the most successful colonizer of the human gastrointestinal tract, infecting the stomachs of roughly 60 percent of the world’s adult population. H. pylori often infects the stomach during childhood and is well-known for causing peptic ulcers. These gastric lesions develop as … Continue reading Lycopene is a promising nutrient that can prevent gastric diseases associated with H. pylori

About 50% of lamb mince sold in Australian supermarkets contains a dangerous parasite that may cause brain damage

A recent study concluded that lamb mince sold in Australian supermarkets might be contaminated with parasites. In the report, researchers from Flinders University tested lamb meat sold in supermarkets three times a week for six months. After testing, they found that 34 out of 79 samples were contaminated by the parasite Toxoplasma gondii. T. gondii is a parasite found in domesticated cats. … Continue reading About 50% of lamb mince sold in Australian supermarkets contains a dangerous parasite that may cause brain damage
