A leading cause of death in Europe is cardiovascular diseases (CVD) and cardiovascular diseases events are higher in women compared with men. Previous studies show omega-3 intake reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases, heart diseases, high blood pressure (BP), cognitive functioning and eye vision. A German population study done by researchers from the University Hannover, Germany shows more than 97.3 percent of the all aged women are at increased risk of cardiovascular diseases and heart disease as the levels of omega-3 are less than 8 percent.
Researchers analyzed data of 446 middle-aged women (between 40 and 60 years) out of 2,367 participants of the VitaMinFemin (vitamin- and mineral status among German women) study to find out nutrients levels in the different stages of the life. Researchers classified omega-3 levels according to the risk of cardiovascular disease. They are
The researchers found among middle-aged women, omega-3 levels are less than 4 percent in 9 percent of them and between 4 - 6 percent in 62.8 percent of them. The Researchers recommends an increase in the consumption of omega-3 foods to reduce health risks. The study was funded by Rottapharm Madaus GmbH. Lead Author of the study is Sandra Gellert and the study findings were published in the PLEFA (Prostaglandins, Leukotrienes and Essential Fatty Acids).
Researchers from International Prevention Research Institute in Lyon, France says diabetes is a warning sign to pancreatic cancer. The researchers found that 50 percent of those patients diagnosed with pancreatic cancer were diagnosed with type ii diabetes (T2D) during the last one year. The worsening of type 2 diabetes condition was linked to seven times enhanced risk of cancer and it was a sign of hidden pancreatic cancer. Health experts say the possibility of diabetes treatment drugs causes cancer or maybe cancer causes diabetes condition. Researchers say more research work needed to be done to identify pancreatic cancer before symptoms appear. Currently, there is no procedure or test or blood markers to identify pancreatic cancer. The scientific findings were presented at the European Cancer Congress 2017, Amsterdam.
New health guidelines issued by the American Heart Association warns of risk of obesity, diabetes and heart diseases when an individual skips breakfast. The breakfast should contain fruit, vegetables, fish, low-fat dairy products, poultry and whole grains. An individual should limit consumption of salt, meat, processed foods and foods high in added sugars. Experts say chances of high blood pressure and high cholesterol are less with the allocation of more calories at the beginning of the day. Researchers say an individual should pay attention to planning the diet menu and the diet timing to avoid emotional eating, which leads to consumption of excess calories with low food quality. The guidelines are based on the analytical results from the Columbia University scientists. Scientists say meal timing may impact internal clock of the body and may deteriorate health conditions. Co-author of the study is Marie Pierre St Onge.
