Recent important articles dealing with nutrition and health

I tweeted recently few posts in regards to nutrition and human health. According to one leading expert in the field, The field needs radical reform: “Some nutrition scientists and much of the public often consider epidemiologic associations of nutritional factors to represent causal effects that can inform public health policy and guidelines. However, the emerging picture of nutritional epidemiology is difficult to reconcile with good scientific principles.”

Another article discusses Food based dietary patterns and chronic disease prevention. Can specific foods provide health benefits? Will adopting a specific food pattern prevent major chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, or cancer? You can find answers from their text.

Both articles are worth reading to guide eating decisions.

High Intensity Interval Training Releases Endorphins in the Brain

This is just a brief posting to direct everybody to read this press release dealing with a recent study showing that in constrast to traditional one-hour continuous aerobic exercise, high-intensity interval training releases endorphins in the brain.

The aforomentioned study comes from the Turku PET Centre, where researchers have also recently elucidated that also eating causes the same effect. In this study it was shown that eating a delicious pizza does not have the same effects as nutritional drink and by reading that study report you can understand why.
