Fruit, Mediterranean-style, and high-fat and -sugar diets are associated with the risk of night sweats and hot flushes in midlife

submitted by: gcmherber
Background: Diet has been suggested to be a potential risk factor for vasomotor menopausal symptoms (VMS), i.e. hot flushes and night sweats. Objective: We investigated the associations between dietary patterns and risk of VMS using data from mid-aged women born between 1946 and 1951 in the Australian Longitudinal Study on Women’s Health. Design: A prospective cohort study of 6,040 women with a natural menopause, who were followed up at three-year intervals over nine years. Dietary...

A magnetic resonance spectroscopy technique to determine the stomach emptying rate of mixed diets in growing rats

submitted by: cmontoya
A rapid technique allowing the accurate determination of stomach emptying rate (SER) would be useful for understanding the process of digestion. The development of a rapid magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) technique based on the marker AlCl3-6H2O, (Al-MRS), to determine the real-time SER of foods in a rat model is described. Experiments were conducted to establish several parameters for the Al-MRS technique and to validate the technique against the traditional serial slaughter method....
