A new diet could more than halve a person's risk of developing Alzheimer's disease, according to new research.

Experts said the diet, known by the acronym MIND, could reduce the risk of the illness even if it not meticulously followed.

The 'Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay' (MIND) diet includes at least three daily servings of wholegrains and salad along with an extra vegetable and a glass of wine.

The new diet could more than halve a person's risk of developing Alzheimer's disease, new research has found, and even has an effect when a person doesn't follow it meticulously

Alzheimer's: The killer protein, properly explained

Posted: at 10:49 pm


The hope is to be able, one day, to fight the pathogenic action of the amyloid-beta protein, whose build-up is associated with Alzheimer's disease. In the meantime, scientists (including a group from the International School for Advanced Studies, SISSA, in Trieste) have synthesised the knowledge acquired about this protein over the last few decades in a review paper that is destined to become a milestone for future research.

"It will still take many years to understand the mechanisms leading to the formation of the characteristic plaques seen in brains affected by Alzheimer's disease," explains Alessandro Laio, SISSA professor. "We know they are mostly a build-up of amyloid-beta peptide, the protein that research is currently focusing on." And, as of today, all those involved in biomolecular research on Alzheimer's will have access to a new and important instrument: an extensive and complete review of all scientific knowledge about this "killer protein" has in fact just been published in the journal Chemical Reviews. The work, coordinated by Philippe Derremaux of the French CNRS, engaged the world's leading research centres in the field, bringing together experimentalists and theoreticians. Among them, the group headed by Laio At SISSA, which includes Baftizadeh Fahimeh and Daniele Granata.

"The work done for this review is unique" comments Laio. "Normally, this kind of study is carried out by a small number of scientists who are necessarily experts in a specific sector. This review, by contrast, involved all those working on this topic and who represent the essence of research in this field." When science becomes so advanced, as is the case here, it is unlikely that one person (or even few people) can understand and report on all of its aspects. "Research into amyloid-beta, as well as being extremely specialised, is also multidisciplinary. So, to understand what's been done so far, it's necessary to bring together different competences that are sometimes very distant from one another," continues Laio.

"This review is destined to become a reference for everyone in this sector as it provides the most comprehensive state of the art in this field. Its utility is also practical: for many researchers it will mean considerably cutting down the time needed to explore the subject in depth before designing their experiments."

The study combines experimental and theoretical aspects (the latter, in particular, the focus of research at SISSA). "Everyone hopes that one day they'll be able to understand and fight this disease which, with the world's growing life expectancy, is becoming increasingly widespread. The efforts to be made are still enormous. We hope we have given a significant contribution through our work."

More in detail...

The amyloid-beta peptide (or A-beta) is a protein that is normally present in our body and that in the vast majority of cases has a benign, physiological function.

However, the same protein is also the main constituent of senile plaques, extracellular deposits that build up in the brains of individuals affected by Alzheimer's disease, a form of age-related senile dementia that leads to severe impairment of cognitive function and eventually to death.

In senile plaques, the central core is composed of amyloid protein and the outer portion of neuronal waste ("debris" from no longer functioning nerve cells). These formations are found all over the brain, but especially in the hippocampus (an area known to be associated with memory, and hence the severe deterioration of this function in patients) and in other areas (frontal and parietal lobes).

York U study: Functional decline in women at Alzheimer's risk relates to deteriorating brain wiring

Posted: at 10:49 pm


A video game-like tool developed from the touchscreen thinking and moving task used in the current study may be the next step in helping to improve communication between brain regions

TORONTO, March 30, 2015 - In their latest brain imaging study on women at risk for Alzheimer's disease, York University researchers have found deterioration in the pathways that serve to communicate signals between different brain regions needed for performing everyday activities such as driving a car or using a computer.

"We observed a relationship between the levels of deterioration in the brain wiring and their performance on our task that required simultaneous thinking and moving; what we see here is a result of communication failure," explains Professor Lauren Sergio in the School of Kinesiology & Health Science.

In an interview, Sergio in whose lab the study was conducted, says the findings also suggest that their computerized, easily-administered task that the study participants performed, can be used to test those at risk for Alzheimer's disease to flag early warning signs. "The test is a clinically feasible substitute to the more involved braining imaging tasks that people don't, or can't, have done routinely."

Typically, Alzheimer's disease is associated with memory loss, perception and other aspects of cognition, while debility in complex movements is observed at a much later stage.

The study, Diffusion Tensor Imaging Correlates of Cognitive-Motor Decline in Normal Aging and Increased Alzheimer's Disease Risk, recently published in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease, was conducted on 30 female participants of whom 10 were in their mid-20s. The rest were in their 50s or older, with half of them at high risk for Alzheimer's disease.

"We decided to focus this study on women, as there is higher prevalence in this group, and also women who carry the ApoE4 gene are more vulnerable to the degradation of white matter," notes PhD candidate Kara Hawkins who led the study, adding that the genetic risk factor for Alzheimer's disease was one of the traits tested for in the current study.

"We scanned the brains of the participants, aiming to see if the impaired cognitive-motor performance in the high risk group was related to brain alterations over and above standard aging changes," Hawkins adds.

According to the researchers, the big question ahead is 'what can be done to prevent a decline in function of a person's brain showing signs of communication problems.' And the answer they are exploring is in finding ways to use these thinking and moving tasks in a proactive way, as part of a game-like cognitive-motor integration training method.

Diageo to provide nutrition and alcohol content information on beverages globally

Diageo to provide nutrition and alcohol content information on beverages globally

Global alcoholic beverages giant Diageo has announced it will provide consumers around the world with alcohol content and nutrition information per typical serve a first for any alcohol company.

The information will be provided through Diageos responsible drinking website DRINKiQ.com and/or on-pack in a majority of Diageos markets, subject to local regulatory approval, as soon as practicable.

Diageo puts the consumer at the heart of everything we do, said Ivan Menezes, Chief Executive, Diageo. We are committed to ensuring our consumers have the best possible information from which to make informed choices about our products: this includes alcohol content and nutrition information per typical serve, he said.

Currently, there is no obligation to provide such information in markets worldwide, but we know that consumers are increasingly discerning about whats in their glass, Mr Menezes said. We want to provide alcohol and nutrition information that consumers can quickly understand, instead of expecting them to do the maths, he said.

Labels could help reduce misuse of alcohol, Diageo

Providing information on the amount of alcohol per serve will help consumers understand how much they are drinking, according to Diageo. The Company said this could help reduce the misuse of alcohol a goal shared by regulators, consumer organisations, health professionals and alcohol companies alike.

US label already approved by regulators

Diageo said it would work with regulators around the world to agree the format of voluntary labels which provide information on alcohol content and nutrition per typical serve. In the US, Diageo has gained regulatory approval for a voluntary serving facts panel for alcohol drinks that includes this nutrition and alcohol per serve information.

Nutrition Council taps LGUs to promote nutritional change

Posted: at 10:49 pm


THE National Nutrition Council (NNC) in Northern Mindanao is pushing for "replication strategy" by engaging outstanding performing local government units (LGUs) to serve as coaches and mentors.

LGUs that produced positive results on nutrition have been recognized through the Nutrition Honor Award (NHA), the highest award on nutrition in the country.

The LGUs include Malaybalay City, Don Carlos, Libona, and Kadingilan towns in the province of Bukidnon, and Ozamiz City in Misamis Occidental.

Regional Nutrition Program Coordinator Marissa DM Navales said initial steps were started last year, bringing two of the LGUs to provide technical assistance and coaching the municipalities and cities that were subjected to Monitoring and Evaluation of Local Level Plan Implementation (MELLPI).

Navales said LGUs for coaching and mentoring would be chosen from the top nutritionally depressed municipalities using the Operation Timbang (OPT) or weighing results as basis, while they are developing more specific set of criteria.

The initiative will be supported with a consultative forum among selected LGU mentors as well briefing and orientation of the local chief executives. (PIA)

ROBBINSVILLE: Agriculture Department nutrition staff works at assisting families

Posted: at 10:49 pm


ROBBINSVILLE It may be out of sight but its within reach of one in four Americans.

Traveling down Route 526 near the townships border with Allentown its easy to pass the blue and white sign without noticing it.

The sign sits perched at the end of Corporate Boulevard, a long driveway that leads to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food and Nutrition Service Mid-Atlantic Regional Office.

We are one of seven regional offices within the food and nutrition service, Regional Administrator Patricia Dombroski said. The other offices are in Chicago, Atlanta, Boston, Denver, San Francisco and Dallas. Were in the metropolis of Robbinsville.Although many may not notice it, the office has been located off Route 526 since 1977 and it represents New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Washington, D.C., Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

We oversee 15 nutritional assistance programs and touch one in four Americans in the course of a year, Ms. Dombroski said.

Currently, the regional office is trying to promote its Summer Food Service Program, which provides nutritious meals to children when school is out for summer. The program started in 1975 with residential summer camps and sites serving areas of poor economic conditions, where at least one-third of the children who qualify for free and reduced price meals, were eligible to participate. Summer meals were served to more than 1.75 million children, at 12,000 sites.

Today, the program has even further reach.

On an average day in July, we serve 2.4 million children, Ms. Dombroski said.

She added, A child needs meals during the summer so they are ready to work when they go back to school. The Food and Nutrition Service also wants parents and guardians to know about the School Breakfast Program, which was established as a pilot program in 1966. In 1975 the program received permanent authorization, with Congress declaring its intent that the program be made available in all schools where it is needed to provide adequate nutrition for children in attendance. Moreover, the legislation continued to emphasize participation by schools in severe need and to provide higher reimbursement to these schools. In 2013, the School Breakfast Program served 242,563 children in New Jersey.

New Jersey schools have found that children who have breakfast and so much more ready to learn for the day, Ms. Dombroski said. Statistics show there a less visits to the school nurse and students are more alert and there are less disciplinary problems and all of thats attributed to children eating breakfast.
