Epigenetic regulation of cortical serotonin (5-HT) 5-HT:5-HT receptor balance in maladaptive impulsivity
Thu, 18 Dec 2014 19:00:27 +0100 | Drug and Alcohol Dependence
Aims: Impulsivity factors into the multifaceted determinants that underlie the etiology of substance use and obesity/eating disorders. Prevention and treatment of these chronic pathological maladies could be greatly advanced by a more comprehensive understanding of the biology of impulsivity. Neural function is regulated by a myriad of regulatory epigenetic, transcriptional, translational and topological processes. Considerable evidence indicates 5-HT systems play a role in impulsivity through the 5-HT2A receptor (5-HT2AR) and 5-HT2CR within the medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC).

Is high fructose corn syrup addictive? Studies of operant intraoral self-administration in rats
Thu, 18 Dec 2014 18:58:42 +0100 | Drug and Alcohol Dependence
Aims: The numerous similarities between obesity and drug dependence suggest that some foods and drugs of abuse may share the ability to reinforce addictive behaviors. The current experiments in male Sprague-Dawley rats employed operant intraoral self-administration and taste reactivity to study and compare the hedonic and reinforcing effects of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), saccharin and sucrose.

The Influence of Antiobesity Media Content on Intention to Eat Healthily and Exercise: A Test of the Ordered Protection Motivation Theory.
Thu, 18 Dec 2014 13:50:02 +0100 | Journal of Obesity
This study extended the ordered protection motivation framework to determine whether exposure and attention to antiobesity media content increases people's appraisals of threat and their ability to cope with it. It also assesses whether these cognitive processes, in turn, affected people's intention to abide by the practices recommended to prevent obesity. The results of a national online survey using a nonprobability sample indicate that attention to mediated obesity and related information significantly increased people's intention to exercise as well as their overall coping appraisals (the perceived effectiveness of the recommended behaviors and their ability to perform them). Likewise, increased threat and coping appraisals were both found to significantly influence people's intention ...

Inferior Vena Cava Filters for Prevention of Venous Thromboembolism in Obese Patients Undergoing Bariatric Surgery: A Systematic Review

Conclusions: Published data reporting the safety and efficacy of IVC filter use in bariatric surgical patients is highly heterogeneous. There is no evidence to suggest that the potential benefits of IVC filters outweigh the significant risks of therapy. (Source: Annals of Surgery)

How many steps are our children taking each day?
Thu, 18 Dec 2014 06:11:07 +0100 | The Journal of Pediatrics
The increasing prevalence and severity of obesity in children and adolescents has focused our attention on the components of energy balance, diet, and physical activity. With this in mind, it is interesting that there are so few normative data on activity in these age groups. In this issue of The Journal, Barreira et al report on an analysis of NHANES data to evaluate activity levels. In NHANES, accelerometers were used to measure activity levels. Barreira et al used those measures to determine steps per day and, thus, develop sex- and age-specific normative values for the number of steps. (Source: The Journal of Pediatrics)

A change of diet to unmask cancer vulnerabilities and reduce cancer risk
Thu, 18 Dec 2014 05:00:00 +0100 | EurekAlert! - Cancer
(Université de Genève) Many recent studies showed that calorie restrictions reduce the incidence of cancer, whereas high-calorie diets cause obesity and diabetes, both of which increase the risk of developing cancers. However, tumor biology still hides complex mechanisms, as revealed by researchers from the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Geneva, Switzerland. In a study published in Cell Metabolism, scientists not only found the unexpected benefit that a change of diet had on certain types of lung cancer, they also deciphered the molecular mechanism underlying this dietary effect and showed how this cancer vulnerability could be exploited in targeted treatment strategies with limited side effects.
