16 Aug 2019 --- A quarter of savory UK picnic foods are dangerously high in salt, while over a third exceed their average salt targets, according to a new survey by Action on Salt, a group based at Queen Mary University of London. Additionally, almost a third of products have no color-coded front-of-pack (FoP) labeling, which Action on Salt says makes it harder for consumers to find a healthy option. The group is now calling for compulsory FoP nutritional labeling on all food products and for bold and comprehensive salt reduction targets to be set in 2020.

15 Aug 2019 --- Children with celiac disease predisposition are more likely to have the disease if they consume large amounts of gluten, according to a new study published in JAMA . While the study is observational and cannot prove causation, it is the most comprehensive of its kind to date as it followed 6,600 children from Sweden, Finland, Germany and the US from birth until the age of five. The risk of developing pre-celiac disease or celiac disease was highest in two to three-year-olds, which increased noticeably when small amounts of gluten were consumed. The researchers are now calling for further research to see whether a policy revision is necessary.

14 Aug 2019 --- In obesity resulting from consuming a high-fat diet or overeating, the body stops responding to natural hormonal signals of satiety, or “fullness.” This mice-study finding has been coined a “new piece of the complex puzzle” of weight gain by the team at Baylor College of Medicine, Texas, US. It is widely known that leptin, a hormone produced by fat cells, triggers the sensation of feeling full when we have eaten enough. Until now, it was unknown that fatty foods could inhibit this natural process through a gut mechanism. These findings further implicate the importance of a healthy diet in weight loss and maintenance.

14 Aug 2019 --- A high-fat diet can weaken the gut immune system and lead to insulin resistance and, ultimately, diabetes. This is according to new research published in Nature Communications , which showed how a high-fat diet influences one component of the gut immune system called B cells, specifically those that produce a protein called IgA. This class of antibodies regulates pathogenic bacteria and protects against a “leaky gut” and additional complications of obesity. These findings could be used to develop therapies that boost IgA in the gut, as well as creating new prevention strategies, the research team shared with NutritionInsight .

Lead researchers of the experiment propose that these findings will help open new doors to further studies of the behavioral and physiological effects that occur in people who consume marijuana-infused food. The study is among the first to report on voluntary oral THC consumption in animals, a method of consumption that is similar to the way humans take the drug.
