Omega-3 Fatty Acids Key To Super Heart Health

Omega-3 Fatty Acids Key To Super Heart HealthSignificantly higher consumption of omega-3 fatty acids among middle-aged Japanese men appears to impart a protective factor that wards off heart disease, a study has revealed.

This New Type of Broccoli Just May Save Your Life-and Your Budget

This New Type of Broccoli Just May Save Your Life-and Your BudgetHow’s this for a happy accident: While researchers at the University of Illinois were trying to boost broccoli’s anti-cancer properties, they may have also found a way to extend the veggie’s shelf life. Jack Juvik, PhD, a professor in the crop sciences department at the university, whose study was recently published in PLOS ONE, says that putting one substance, methyl jasmonate (MeJA), on the crop before it’s harvested, and another, 1-methylcyclopropene (1-MCP), after the harvest ups the veggie’s cancer-fighting power-and makes the produce last longer.

Just how much longer-and more powerful? “We found that the combined treatment approximately doubled the shelf life when stored at standard refrigerator temperature from about 7 to 15 days while enhancing anticancer activity by 60%,” says Dr. Juvik.

More potentially good news-if you’re not a huge broccoli fan, that is. Elizabeth Jeffery, PhD, the study’s co-author and a nutrition professor also at the University of Illinois, says that it’ll take fewer servings per week than the current recommended three to five to cut your risk for certain cancers by 40 to 50%. “That’s the sort of direction we’d like to go with our research,” she says. “Our aim is to help farmers produce a crop that ensures people get all of the health benefits associated with broccoli.” [Read more…]
