    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Rural adolescents; Dietary diversity; Ultra-processed food; Deep-fried food; Bangladesh; Matlab; Nutrition;

    Abstract : Background: With an estimated number of 1.2 billion in the world, adolescents represent a major transformative force in global health. Optimum adolescent nutrition is increasingly important for scaling up population health gains in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) of South Asia. READ MORE

  2. 2. Antioxidants in Andean food and meals

    Author : Leslie Tejeda; Livsmedelsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Antioxidant capacity; polyphenolic compounds; anthocyanidins; individual food; meals; ans and stan genes;

    Abstract : Abstract The constant need to improve health and to prevent disease in Bolivia, especially in the Andean region with its extreme environmental conditions (high altitude and lower temperatures), motivated us to extend studies of antioxidant sources in foods and plants, since antioxidants are believed to have major health benefits. Spectrophotometric methods, such as ABTS (2, 2’- azinobis-3-ethylbenzotiazoline-6-sulfonic acid) and FRAP (ferric reduction antioxidant power), were used to evaluate antioxidant activity. READ MORE

    Abstract : Ataxic polyneuropathy is a neurological syndrome that was described from an endemic area in south-western Nigeria in the 1950s and 1960s. The major clinical features are sensory polyneuropathy, sensory gait ataxia, optic atrophy, and nerve deafness. READ MORE

  4. 4. Diet and gastrointestinal cancer : one-carbon metabolism and other aspects

    Author : Susanna C Larsson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Diet has been hypothesized to play a major role in the etiology of gastrointestinal cancer, but the specific dietary factors involved remain unclear. The aims of this thesis were: to examine the associations of dietary magnesium and vitamin B6 intakes with risk of colorectal cancer in the Swedish Mammography Cohort (SMC); to evaluate the relation between folate intake and risk of pancreatic cancer in the SMC and the Cohort of Swedish Men (COSM); to use metaanalysis to summarize the evidence from published studies of the associations of folate intake and polymorphisms in the gene encoding 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR C677T and A1298C), a central enzyme in one-carbon metabolism, with risk of esophageal, gastric, pancreatic, and colorectal cancer; and to perform a meta-analysis of epidemiologic studies of the relationship between processed meat consumption and risk of gastric cancer.

  5. 5. Cereal- and Microbial Phytases. Phytate Degradation, Mineral Binding and Absorption

    Author : Maria Türk; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : mineral binding; iron absorption; cereals; phytate degradation; phytase; dietary phytases; S cerevisiae; A niger;

    Abstract : Cereal foods contain large amounts of phytate (myo-inositol hexaphosphate; IP6), which is the major storage form of phosphorus, in the plant. IP6 possesses a high potential for chelating minerals, such as Fe 2+, Zn2+, Mg2+ and Ca2+. READ MORE
