a study from researchers at the University of Bristol discovers an important cell signaling pathway in the kidney holding great potential to treat CKD. The team states they have linked a signaling molecule present in high levels in the brain called Neuropeptide Y (Npy) to raised levels of albuminuria and damage to the glomerulus.

Human trial suggests eating bread made with ancient grains lowers cholesterol and blood glucose.

For raised heath properties it is known that, compared with modern grain varieties which are often heavily refined, ancient grains offer antioxidant and anti-inflammatory profiles. They also contain beneficial vitamins … Continue Reading Human trial suggests eating bread made with ancient grains lowers cholesterol and blood glucose.

Large-scale study shows that memory, epigenetics of a heart attack are stored in person’s genes.

Cardiovascular diseases are the leading causes of death worldwide and represent a substantial economic burden on public health care systems.  Now, a study from researchers at Uppsala University shows that … Continue Reading Large-scale study shows that memory, epigenetics of a heart attack are stored in person’s genes.
