Probiotics Help Beat Campylobacter in Chickens

In the search to find ways to lessen the transmission of foodborne disease from poultry products, researchers in Spain and Finland have found that probiotic products used by humans helped to reduce colonisation of the chicken gut with Campylobacter bacteria. According to researchers from Spain and Finland, probiotics used for humans showed promise at decreasing the colonisation of the chicken gut with Campylobacter. Read more

Bifidus May Help Inflammation in Crohns

Researchers at Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children's Hospital have recognized commensal bacteria in the human intestine that produce a neurotransmitter that may play a role in treating or preventing inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) such as Crohn's disease.

Karina Pokusaeva, a researcher on the study and a member of the laboratory of James Versalovic,says, " We identified the first bifidobacterial strain, Bifidobacterium dentium, which is capable of secreting large amounts of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). This molecule is a major inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central and enteric nervous systems." Read more

Omega 3 and Omega 6 Linked to Allergy Response in Infants

Recent research suggests that fish oil supplementation in the first six months of an infants life helps to reduce the production of allergy-related mediators and increases levels of omega 3 fatty acids.

The study is the first to test the effects of fish oil supplementation immediately after the birth of a child up to six months of age. A team of UWA researchers collected blood samples from 120 six-month-old infants who had been given fish oil or control oil from birth and assessed fatty acid levels as well as immune cell responses to milk, egg and house dust mite allergens.

Did You Know...

  • Coffee Drinkers are Less Depressed
    Women who drank two or three cups of regular coffee a day were 15% less likely to develop depression over a 10 year period, compared with women who drank one cup a week or less. Women who drank four cups daily had a 20% lower depression risk. Decaf drinkers did not get the same benefit.
  • Aspirin can Increase Certain Risks
    Aspirin use in a large population-based cohort of primary-prevention patients is associated with an increased risk of major gastrointestinal bleeding and cerebral bleeding episodes, and this increased rate of bleeding is higher than previously reported in randomized, prospective clinical trials, according to the results of a new study.
  • Popcorn Contains Polyphenols
    Plain popcorn has twice as many polyphenols as fruit. Polyphenols are antioxidants found in plants that help counter the damaging effects of free radicals. They help guard against heart disease and other health problems.
  • Four-Year Graduation Price Guarantees are Offered by Some Colleges
    If a student does not graduate within four years, parents are not charged tuition for additional semesters. About 20 private colleges and a few public ones offer the guarantees. Criteria vary by school. Most colleges require the student to promise to declare a major by sophomore year, meet regularly with an advisor and maintain a certain grade point average.
    Examples: DePauw University requires students to declare a major by the middle of their sophomore year and maintain at least a C average. The University of Minnesota requires students to meet regularly with advisors. As you shop around, ask each college that you are considering whether it offers graduation guarantees or other methods of potentially reducing costs.
