Pesticides and Herbicides: A Growing Concern (Webinar)

submitted by: Chrom Solutions
This webinar describes using suppressed ion chromatography--mass spectrometry (IC-MS/MS) for glyphosate (a widely used broad-spectrum herbicide) analysis with the result that required reporting limits can be achieved without time-consuming derivatization. In addition, a validated extraction method for weathered toxaphene (banned since 1990) and its degradation products in fish tissues using Accelerated Solvent Extraction is also discussed.

Effect of alginate supplementation on weight loss in obese subjects completing a 12-wk energy-restricted diet: a randomized controlled trial

submitted by:
Background: Acute studies with alginate-based preloads suggested that these strong gelling fibers may induce increased feelings of satiety and reduce energy intakes. However, the long-term efficacy and safety of alginate supplementation on body weight regulation are lacking. Objective: The primary aim of the study was to investigate the effects in subjects of alginate supplementation in conjunction with energy restriction (2300 kcal/d) on loss of body weight and fat and, second, on...
