They are unicellular prokaryotic microorganisms which generally possess rigid cell walls, multiply by cell division, and exhibit three principal forms: round or coccal, rodlike or bacillary, and spiral or spirochetal. Bacteria can be classified by their response to OXYGEN: aerobic, anaerobic, or facultatively anaerobic; by the mode by which they obtain their energy: chemotrophy (via chemical reaction) or PHOTOTROPHY (via light reaction); for chemotrophs by their source of chemical energy: CHEMOLITHOTROPHY (from inorganic compounds) or chemoorganotrophy (from organic compounds); and by their source for CARBON; NITROGEN; etc.; HETEROTROPHY (from organic sources) or AUTOTROPHY (from CARBON DIOXIDE). They can also be classified by whether or not they stain (based on the structure of their CELL WALLS) with CRYSTAL VIOLET dye: gram-negative or gram-positive.
RNA sequences that serve as templates for protein synthesis. Bacterial mRNAs are generally primary transcripts in that they do not require post-transcriptional processing. Eukaryotic mRNA is synthesized in the nucleus and must be exported to the cytoplasm for translation. Most eukaryotic mRNAs have a sequence of polyadenylic acid at the 3' end, referred to as the poly(A) tail. The function of this tail is not known for certain, but it may play a role in the export of mature mRNA from the nucleus as well as in helping stabilize some mRNA molecules by retarding their degradation in the cytoplasm.
A plant species of the genus VICIA, family FABACEAE. The edible beans are well known but they cause FAVISM in some individuals with GLUCOSEPHOSPHATE DEHYDROGENASE DEFICIENCY. This plant contains vicine, convicine, Vicia lectins, unknown seed protein, AAP2 transport protein, and Vicia faba DNA-binding protein 1.
Large and highly vacuolated cells possessing many chloroplasts occuring in the interior cross-section of leaves, juxtaposed between the epidermal layers.

Dietary isoflavones: biological effects and relevance to human health. (1/476)

Substantial evidence indicates that diets high in plant-based foods may explain the epidemiologic variance of many hormone-dependent diseases that are a major cause of mortality and morbidity in Western populations. There is now an increased awareness that plants contain many phytoprotectants. Lignans and isoflavones represent two of the main classes of phytoestrogens of current interest in clinical nutrition. Although ubiquitous in their occurrence in the plant kingdom, these bioactive nonnutrients are found in particularly high concentrations in flaxseeds and soybeans and have been found to have a wide range of hormonal and nonhormonal activities that serve to provide plausible mechanisms for the potential health benefits of diets rich in phytoestrogens. Data from animal and in vitro studies provide convincing evidence for the potential of phytoestrogens in influencing hormone-dependent states; although the clinical application of diets rich in these estrogen mimics is in its infancy, data from preliminary studies suggest beneficial effects of importance to health. This review focuses on the more recent studies pertinent to this field and includes, where appropriate, the landmark and historical literature that has led to the exponential increase in interest in phytoestrogens from a clinical nutrition perspective.  (+info)

Inhibitory effect of sulfur-containing compounds in Scorodocarpus borneensis Becc. on the aggregation of rabbit platelets. (2/476)

The inhibitory effects of three pure compounds isolated from wood garlic, 2,4,5-trithiahexane (I), 2,4,5,7-tetrathiaoctane (II), and 2,4,5,7-tetrathiaoctane 2,2-dioxide (III), on rabbit platelet aggregation induced by collagen, arachidonic acid, U46619, ADP (adenosine 5'-diphosphate), PAF (platelet aggregating factor), and thrombin were studied in vitro. The anti-aggregating activity of 2,4,5,7-tetrathiaoctane 4,4-dioxide (IV) was also measured with collagen and arachidonic acid. I, II, III, and IV inhibited the platelet aggregation induced by all tested agonists. I, II, and III exhibited a stronger inhibitory effect against the thrombin-induced aggregation of GFP (gel-filtered platelets) than against the aggregation induced by the other agonists. Notably, the IC50 value for III was 4 microM, which is approximately 2.5 times stronger than MATS (methyl allyl trisulfide), a major anti-platelet compound isolated from garlic. In inhibiting collagen-induced aggregation, II was as potent as MATS and aspirin, with a marked disaggregation effect on the secondary aggregation by arachidonic acid, at the rate of 47.05%/min at a concentration of 10(-4) M. I, II, and III also suppressed U46619-induced aggregation. These results suggest that sulfur-containing compounds in wood garlic not only inhibit arachidonic acid metabolism but also suppress aggregation in association with the function of the platelet plasma membrane.  (+info)

Foliar modifications induced by inhibition of polar transport of auxin. (3/476)

The effects of auxin polar transport inhibitors, 9-hydroxy-fluorene-9-carboxylic acid (HFCA); 2, 3, 5-triiodobenzoic acid (TIBA) and trans-cinnamic acid (CA) on leaf pattern formation were investigated with shoots formed from cultured leaf explants of tobacco and cultured pedicel explants of Orychophragmus violaceus, and the seedlings of tobacco and Brassica chinensis. Although the effective concentration varies with the inhibitors used, all of the inhibitors induced the formation of trumpet-shaped and/or fused leaves. The frequency of trumpet-shaped leaf formation was related to the concentration of inhibitors in the medium. Histological observation of tobacco seedlings showed that there was only one main vascular bundle and several minor vascular bundles in normal leaves of the control, but there were several vascular bundles of more or less the same size in the trumpet-shaped leaves of treated ones. These results indicated that auxin polar transport played an important role on bilateral symmetry of leaf growth.  (+info)

Plant genetic resources: what can they contribute toward increased crop productivity? (4/476)

To feed a world population growing by up to 160 people per minute, with >90% of them in developing countries, will require an astonishing increase in food production. Forecasts call for wheat to become the most important cereal in the world, with maize close behind; together, these crops will account for approximately 80% of developing countries' cereal import requirements. Access to a range of genetic diversity is critical to the success of breeding programs. The global effort to assemble, document, and utilize these resources is enormous, and the genetic diversity in the collections is critical to the world's fight against hunger. The introgression of genes that reduced plant height and increased disease and viral resistance in wheat provided the foundation for the "Green Revolution" and demonstrated the tremendous impact that genetic resources can have on production. Wheat hybrids and synthetics may provide the yield increases needed in the future. A wild relative of maize, Tripsacum, represents an untapped genetic resource for abiotic and biotic stress resistance and for apomixis, a trait that could provide developing world farmers access to hybrid technology. Ownership of genetic resources and genes must be resolved to ensure global access to these critical resources. The application of molecular and genetic engineering technologies enhances the use of genetic resources. The effective and complementary use of all of our technological tools and resources will be required for meeting the challenge posed by the world's expanding demand for food.  (+info)

Ecological approaches and the development of "truly integrated" pest management. (5/476)

Recent predictions of growth in human populations and food supply suggest that there will be a need to substantially increase food production in the near future. One possible approach to meeting this demand, at least in part, is the control of pests and diseases, which currently cause a 30-40% loss in available crop production. In recent years, strategies for controlling pests and diseases have tended to focus on short-term, single-technology interventions, particularly chemical pesticides. This model frequently applies even where so-called integrated pest management strategies are used because in reality, these often are dominated by single technologies (e.g., biocontrol, host plant resistance, or biopesticides) that are used as replacements for chemicals. Very little attention is given to the interaction or compatibility of the different technologies used. Unfortunately, evidence suggests that such approaches rarely yield satisfactory results and are unlikely to provide sustainable pest control solutions for the future. Drawing on two case histories, this paper demonstrates that by increasing our basic understanding of how individual pest control technologies act and interact, new opportunities for improving pest control can be revealed. This approach stresses the need to break away from the existing single-technology, pesticide-dominated paradigm and to adopt a more ecological approach built around a fundamental understanding of population biology at the local farm level and the true integration of renewable technologies such as host plant resistance and natural biological control, which are available to even the most resource-poor farmers.  (+info)

Biotechnology: enhancing human nutrition in developing and developed worlds. (6/476)

While the last 50 years of agriculture have focused on meeting the food, feed, and fiber needs of humans, the challenges for the next 50 years go far beyond simply addressing the needs of an ever-growing global population. In addition to producing more food, agriculture will have to deal with declining resources like water and arable land, need to enhance nutrient density of crops, and achieve these and other goals in a way that does not degrade the environment. Biotechnology and other emerging life sciences technologies offer valuable tools to help meet these multidimensional challenges. This paper explores the possibilities afforded through biotechnology in providing improved agronomic "input" traits, differentiated crops that impart more desirable "output" traits, and using plants as green factories to fortify foods with valuable nutrients naturally rather than externally during food processing. The concept of leveraging agriculture as green factories is expected to have tremendous positive implications for harnessing solar energy to meet fiber and fuel needs as well. Widespread adaptation of biotech-derived products of agriculture should lay the foundation for transformation of our society from a production-driven system to a quality and utility-enhanced system.  (+info)

Hydrogen peroxide is generated systemically in plant leaves by wounding and systemin via the octadecanoid pathway. (7/476)

Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) generated in response to wounding can be detected at wound sites and in distal leaf veins within 1 hr after wounding. The response is systemic and maximizes at about 4-6 hr in both wounded and unwounded leaves, and then declines. The timing of the response corresponds with an increase in wound-inducible polygalacturonase (PG) mRNA and enzyme activity previously reported, suggesting that oligogalacturonic acid (OGA) fragments produced by PG are triggering the H2O2 response. Systemin, OGA, chitosan, and methyl jasmonate (MJ) all induce the accumulation of H2O2 in leaves. Tomato plants transformed with an antisense prosystemin gene produce neither PG activity or H2O2 in leaves in response to wounding, implicating systemin as a primary wound signal. The antisense plants do produce both PG activity and H2O2 when supplied with systemin, OGA, chitosan, or MJ. A mutant tomato line compromised in the octadecanoid pathway does not exhibit PG activity or H2O2 in response to wounding, systemin, OGA, or chitosan, but does respond to MJ, indicating that the generation of H2O2 requires a functional octadecanoid signaling pathway. Among 18 plant species from six families that were assayed for wound-inducible PG activity and H2O2 generation, 14 species exhibited both wound-inducible PG activity and the generation of H2O2. Four species, all from the Fabaceae family, exhibited little or no wound-inducible PG activity and did not generate H2O2. The time course of wound-inducible PG activity and H2O2 in Arabidopsis thaliana leaves was similar to that found in tomato. The cumulative data suggest that systemic wound signals that induce PG activity and H2O2 are widespread in the plant kingdom and that the response may be associated with the defense of plants against both herbivores and pathogens.  (+info)

Foodborne botulism associated with home-canned bamboo shoots--Thailand, 1998. (8/476)

On April 13, 1998, the Field Epidemiology Training Program in the Thailand Ministry of Public Health (TMPH) was informed of six persons with sudden onset of cranial nerve palsies suggestive of botulism who were admitted to a provincial hospital in northern Thailand. To determine the cause of the cluster, TMPH initiated an investigation on April 14. This report summarizes the results of the investigation, which indicate that the outbreak was caused by foodborne botulism from home-canned bamboo shoots.  (+info)

Family growth response to fishmeal and plant-based diets shows genotype x diet interaction in rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) Lindsey R. Pierce (Abstract) The ability of rainbow trout to efficiently utilize plant-based diets for growth and the genetic variation for that trait have not been thoroughly examined. In this study, growth of a pedigreed population from the commercial Kamloop strain was assessed while feeding plant-based or traditional fishmeal-based diets. Both fish oil (5.00%) and soybean oil (8.43%) were included in the plant-based diet, and only fish oil was used in the fishmeal diet (10.10%). Ninety-five full-sib families nested within 47 half-sib families were reared in a common environment. Parentage assignment was performed on approximately 1,000 fish fed each diet using eight microsatellite markers chosen for non-duplication, a minimum of five alleles with no known null alleles, at least 50% heterozygosity, and unambiguous scoring. Progeny were assigned to parental pairs ...

A staple food is one that is eaten regularly and in such quantities as to constitute the dominant part of the diet and supply a major proportion of energy and nutrient needs.. A staple food does not meet a populations total nutritional needs: a variety of foods is required. This is particularly the case for children and other nutritionally vulnerable groups.. Typically, staple foods are well adapted to the growth conditions in their source areas. For example, they may be tolerant of drought, pests or soils low in nutrients. Farmers often rely on staple crops to reduce risk and increase the resilience of their agricultural systems.. Most people live on a diet based on one or more of the following staples: rice, wheat, maize (corn), millet, sorghum, roots and tubers (potatoes, cassava, yams and taro), and animal products such as meat, milk, eggs, cheese and fish.. Of more than 50 000 edible plant species in the world, only a few hundred contribute significantly to food supplies. Just 15 crop ...
Im often asked how I get enough protein on a plant-based diet. Before making the switch to a whole food, plant-based diet, I had the same question. For a long time, I was under the impression that animal products like meat, fish, eggs, and dairy were the best sources of protein. I knew that nuts and beans had some protein, but I never thought of vegetables, whole grains, and seeds as good sources of protein.. Our bodies reply on about 20 different amino acids to build proteins. Many of these amino acids can be synthesized when we need them, but there are nine essential amino acids that our bodies are not able to produce on their own. Animal-based proteins like meat, dairy, and eggs represent complete proteins, meaning they contain the nine essential amino acids.. However, from a nutrient-to-calorie ratio perspective, these foods dont land in the nutrient-rich category, especially compared to plant-based, nutrient-rich alternatives. Additionally, animal-based sources of protein are naturally ...

This year more than any other time I have been really expanding my knowledge of wild foods. Though, I have been foraging since I was a child, I recently set a goal to make 50% of my food intake to be from the wild.

Considering that my overall food intake is actually quite low (I eat maybe once a day). I do my best to work some wild food into my biggest meal of the day but my daily smoothie makes it the easier.. Aside from my one main meal (that isnt every day) I have a daily smoothie. Its usually a green smoothie that I can easily add wild foods into such as purslane, dandelion, plantain, lambs quarters and an assortment of berries..

How much meat can you eat and still get the benefits of a veggie diet? Theres not enough research to give a precise amount. Diet is a continuum, says Robert Ostfeld, M.D., director of Preventive Cardiology and founder and director of the Cardiac Wellness Program at Montefiore Medical Center in New York. But patients who more fully embrace a whole foods, plant-based diet have the best outcomes.. Still, research shows that eschewing meat all of the time isnt necessary. In one recent preliminary study of more than 450,000 adults, those who followed a plant-based diet that was 70 percent plants had a 20 percent lower risk of dying from heart disease or stroke than those whose diets centered on meat and dairy. A Harvard study that tracked more than 120,000 people for 30 years found that those who ate the most red meat tended to die younger during the study period but that swapping just one daily serving of beef for nuts could cut the risk of dying early by as much as 19 percent..

Plant phenolics and extracts are able to affect cell signalling associated with regulated cell-death mechanisms. Such mechanisms play a crucial role in the normal homeostasis of an organism, but inadequately functioning cell-death machinery is a component of the development of complex diseases, such as cancer, where cells divide in an uncontrolled manner. Apoptosis is the most studied regulated cell-death mechanism associated with cancer. One of the key triggers of and contributors to apoptotic cell death is a tumour suppressor p53. This protein is constantly produced, though it is activated only by several cellular stress responses, such as endoplasmic reticulum stress. The purpose of this study is to investigate the cytotoxic and apoptotic properties of three plant phenolics - curcumin, resveratrol and quercetin - and seven plant extracts - basil, juniper, laurel, lemon balm, parsley, and Siberian pine - in cancerous neuroblastoma and melanoma, and non-cancerous fibroblast cell models.

TUESDAY, May 7, 2019 (HealthDay News) - Plant-based diets are associated with a lower risk for heart failure (HF) in adults without known heart disease, according to a study published in the April 30 issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.. Kyla M. Lara, M.D., from Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City, used data from the REasons for Geographic and Racial Differences in Stroke trial to evaluate associations of five dietary patterns (convenience, plant-based, sweets, Southern, and alcohol/salads) with incident HF hospitalizations among 16,068 U.S. adults (mean age, 64.0 years; 58.7 percent women; 33.6 percent black).. During a median 8.7 years of follow-up, the researchers found 363 participants had incident HF hospitalizations.

Hypertension is endemic among Americans, but much of this is the result of our diets. Research designed to address an adverse lipid profile also produced startling benefits of healthy weight balance, reduced incidence of inflammatory diseases, and even better skin. Because it aids in the healthy maintenance of circulatory systems, the plant-based approach also tends to lower hypertension in adults.. There are many benefits to eating a healthier array of foods and getting sufficient physical activity. While some may elect to eschew animal proteins on moral or philosophical grounds, the empirical data suggests that better health is a direct consequence of eating more fruits and vegetables. All the benefits described are interrelated, bound to a reduction of saturated fats, muscle proteins, and dairy. By replacing much of the Standard American Diet (SAD) with fresh, leafy greens and fruits and whole cereals, the plant-based diet poses solutions to much of what ails our culture.. ...
When Dane* was diagnosed with diabetes, the idea of taking pills and getting insulin shots depressed him. He still considered himself a young man with a lot of life left to live, but junk food was his weakness. As a person of faith, it was the knowledge of a loving God that led Dane to push past his food addictions and, with the help of George Guthrie, MD, MPH, incorporate a plant-based diet into his lifestyle.. Many people who embrace the plant-based lifestyle will need less medication, and more than a few eventually may not need medication at all, said Dr. Guthrie.. Dane is a living testament of that transformation and has said himself, It is much better to be an evangelist than a diabetic.. In the U.S., about half of deaths caused by Type 2 diabetes, stroke and heart disease are the result of poor dietary habits, according to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Dr. Guthrie, an AdventHealth physician who specializes in lifestyle medicine, is determined to ...

Every year the survey identifies leading factors that impact food and beverage purchases. Every Survey has seen taste reign supreme and in 2019 the trend continues. Deemed important ...
plant-based-diets-2-things-720pxRead More {flike} Plant-based diets have become more popular recently, and not without reason; most Americans do not get enough plants in their diet in the form of fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds. No one could argue that eating more vegetables and fruits is a bad thing for the majority of people.
Every sum-mer, we hear lots of advice to use sun-screen and wear hats and so on to help us avoid skin can-cer. No one ever both-ers to tell us that eat-ing a low-fat, plant-based diet also helps to pre-vent skin can-cer.. This arti-cle, which was pub-lished in 1994 in the New Eng-land Jour-nal of Med-i-cine, stud-ied the effect of a dietary change (a switch to a low-er-fat diet) on peo-ple who had had at least one non-melanoma skin can-cer. The peo-ple who switched to a low-er-fat diet were less like-ly to get new pre-can-cer-ous lesions. A fol-low-up study pub-lished in 1998 showed that they were also less like-ly to get skin can-cers.. A prop-er diet might also help reduce the risk of melanoma, which is the most dead-ly form of skin can-cer. Eat-ing too much polyun-sat-u-rat-ed fat increas-es the risk of can-cer in gen-er-al and melanoma in par-tic-u-lar.

The present invention is concerned with an edible plant oils from which saturated fatty acids were removed and manufacturing process thereof. In order to remove saturated fatty acids from the edible plant oils; 1) Saturated and unsaturated fatty acids bound on same triglyceride molecules of edible plant oils were segregated each other as alkylesters of fatty acids by conventional transesterification reaction in which edible plant oils were treated with large excess of absolute C.sub.1.about.C.sub.8 alkanol under the presence of catalytic amount of alkali- or alkali-earth metal-C.sub.1.about.C.sub.8 alkoxide. 2) The alkyl-esters of mixed fatty acids were treated with C.sub.1.about.C.sub.8 alkanol solution of urea to remove the alkylester of saturated fatty acids by conventional fractional crystallization as urea complexes of saturated fatty acid-alkylesters. 3) Finally the resulting alkylesters of unsaturated fatty acids, obtained by removal of
The aim of this study was to examine consumers readiness to change to a plant-based diet. Mail survey that included questions on readiness to change, eating habits and perceived benefits and barriers to the consumption of a plant-based diet. Victoria, Australia. A total of 415 randomly selected adults. In terms of their readiness to eat a plant-based diet, the majority (58%) of participants were in the precontemplation stage of change, while 14% were in contemplation/preparation, and 28% in action/maintenance. Those in the action/maintenance stage ate more fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds, whole-meal bread, and cooked cereals than those in earlier stages. There were statistically significant differences in age and vegetarian status between the stages of change, but not for other demographic variables. There were strong differences across the stages of change with regard to perceived benefits and barriers to plant-based diets. For example, those in action/maintenance scored highest for benefit factors
HealthDay News) - Greater adherence to healthy plant-based diets and a vegetarian diet is associated with a lower risk for chronic kidney disease (CKD), according to a study published online in the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology.. Hyunju Kim, from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore, and colleagues conducted analyses among 14,686 middle-aged adults. Four plant-based diet indices were used to characterize diets. The authors examined their correlation with incident CKD, while adjusting for confounding variables.. The researchers found that 4343 incident CKD cases occurred during a median follow-up of 24 years. There was a correlation for greater adherence to a healthy plant-based diet (hazard ratio for quintile 5 vs quintile 1, 0.86) and a provegetarian diet (hazard ratio, 0.90) with lower risk for CKD; greater adherence to a less healthy plant-based diet correlated with elevated risk (hazard ratio for quintile 5 vs quintile 1, 1.11). Slower ...
The first section of this chapter discusses how agriculture, food prices, and household incomes set the context for the types of diets that the poor can afford to eat, the prevalence of micronutrient malnutrition, and the conditions which will drive the effectiveness of various types of interventions that can be implemented to reduce micronutrient malnutrition. The second section discusses the numbers of people affected globally by mineral and vitamin deficiencies and what are functional consequences of these deficiencies. The third section describes agricultural and non-agricultural inventions, and their relative cost-effectiveness, that are currently being used to address the problem of micronutrient deficiencies. ...

There are so many reasons to include plants in our lives and more than ever we should be basing our diet on plants so we can fuel ourselves with nutrients to thrive.A plant-based diet is not vegan or vegetarian per se, but instead sets the foundation of the diet on plants and builds from there. I encourage people to incorporate a plant-based diet into their lives because it helps transition away from processed and refined food, is sustainable for our earth, and fuels the body
Maasai and Kurya form two main communities around the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania which are mainly pastoralists. Changing climate to excessive drought, have recently forced them to start practicing subsistence farming which is severely affected by wild animals. This study explored status of the folk taxonomy and uses of mushrooms in the two communities as a pave way for possibilities of introducing mushroom cultivation, an alternative crop which is hardly affected by wild animals. Folk taxonomy and use mushrooms by the Kurya and Maasai communities were investigated. Information was collected by face to face interviews with 150 individuals in 6 selected villages. Using descriptive statistics by Statistic Package for the Social Science (SPSS) version 17.0, the demographic characteristics of informants were evaluated and cross relationships with the recorded data were analysed. Kurya are mycophilic with 94% of the informants recognizing utilization of the wild mushroom either as foodstuff or as

Plants have super intelligence, the Facebook post reads. If you put your saliva on the seed of an edible plant and place it in the soil, something miraculous will happen. The plant will read your DNA and structure its own genetic blueprint to be a superfood based on any deficiencies or requirements that your DNA is signaling.. There is, however, no evidence that adding saliva to a seed before planting it will change the plants genetic make up. A search of the Botanical Society of Americas website, as well as the Botanical Society of Britain and Irelands website, turned up no mention of human saliva modifying edible plants. Had such a discovery been made, media outlets certainly would have reported on it, yet none have, except to debunk the claim.. While plants can be genetically modified, the process is more complex than adding human saliva to the seed. The desired trait must be isolated first, and then a gene gun or biologically engineered bacteria is used to insert the desired trait ...

The best example mentioned here is the dandelion plant. There s a very good chance that you already have dandelions growing on your land or near your home. Notoriously hardy and prolific, dandelions are all-too-often spurned as persistent pests. For this reason, they are cut down, weeded out, and treated with all kinds of chemical herbicides, but no matter what people throw at them, dandelions always seem to grow back. Could it be possible that such a resilient plant could also promote resilience within our own health as well, if we consume it? The answer is a resounding yes. If you live with dandelions in close proximity, you are very blessed indeed because you have a superfood, and one of nature s most potent medicines, in your midst. It is said that every part of the dandelion has a specific medicinal purpose - its roots being particularly beneficial for liver cleansing in the spring time. Dandelion greens are extremely nutritious and can be used in salads. They are particularly delicious ...

Abstract: Epidemiological studies have revealed that a diet rich in plant-derived foods has a protective effect on human health. Identifying bioactive dietary constituents is an active area of scientific investigation that may lead to new drug discovery. Kaempferol (3,5,7-trihydroxy-2-(4-hydroxyphenyl)-4H-1-benzopyran-4-one) is a flavonoid found in many edible plants (e.g. tea, broccoli, cabbage, kale, beans, endive, leek, tomato, strawberries and grapes) ...
There are many concerns about the use of GMOs. Through gene escape GMOs may end up in plants of the same species or different species. Genes can mutate and may cause harmful effects. Certain sleeper genes could be accidentally activated and active genes could become deactivated. This is particularly relevant to long-lived species like trees. There are also worries about the effects on human health. The American Academy of Environmental Medicine are concerned about serious health risks associated with GM food including infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulin regulation and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system.

Ditching cheese, milk and other dairy products for more plant-based foods could reduce your risk of developing prostate cancer. And though the association between eating other animal products and prostate cancer wasnt as clear, Mayo Clinic researchers found that plant-based diets appeared to decrease that risk.
For most of the evolution of the hominoids (apes and humans), it seems likely that we depended on plant-based (vegetarian) diets1-5-very high in fiber, low in saturated fats, lacking in cholesterol, with carbohydrate in dilute form, rich in micronutrients and phytochemicals, and with very low energy density. The gibbon split from our clade over 20 million years ago. The orangutan departed 15 million years ago. The final break occurred 5 to 7 million years ago with the shift in tectonic plates that created the Rift Valley and sent gorilla, chimpanzee, and human to follow their separate paths of development. The gibbon, orangutan, and gorilla, and to a large extent the chimpanzee, continue with their plant-based diets.. Humans are the odd men out. They left the jungle and colonized the savannah, they gathered plant materials for subsistence, and it has been suggested that they followed the big cats and other carnivores to compete with the jackal for the carrion.6,7 Approximately 2.5 million ...
Vegetarian and vegan diet plans with total lack of animal products are already known to lower blood pressure compared to omnivorous diet plans. Their feasibility and sustainability are, nevertheless, restricted. Until now, it has not been understood whether a total absence of animal items is necessary in plant-based dietary patterns to achieve a substantial helpful result on blood pressure.. Lead author Joshua Gibbs, a student in the University of Warwick School of Life Sciences, said: We reviewed 41 studies involving 8,416 participants, in which the effects of seven different plant-based diets (including DASH, Mediterranean, Vegetarian, Vegan, Nordic, high fibre and high fruit and vegetables) on blood pressure were studied in controlled clinical trials. A systematic review and meta-analysis of these studies showed that most of these diets lowered blood pressure. The DASH diet had the largest effect reducing blood pressure by 5.53/3.79 mmHg compared to a control diet, and by 8.74/6.05 mmHg when ...

What a read! Healthy Eating, Healthy World by J. Morris Hicks makes the case for a startling revelation: by sustaining ourselves on a plant-based diet we are also sustaining the Earth. To feed a person the typical Western diet (heavy with animal products) for a year requires 3.25 acres of arable land. To feed one vegan requires about one-sixth of an acre. Thus, with a vegan diet, you can feed about twenty people with the same amount of land that is required to feed one person with the typical Western diet.. ...
Arizona vegans, vegetarians say they have more dining options now [/su_pullquote]. Younger generations - Millennials and Generation Z, in particular - have driven much of that growth, according to NPD Group Inc . Lisa Schmidt, a clinical dietitian and professor at Arizona State University, said many people who adopt plant-based diets such as veganism or vegetarianism have numerous health benefits. Plant-based diets are low in saturated fat, which is correlated to heart disease, Type 2 diabetes and other health risks. Schmidt said people have misconceptions about plant-based diets, especially their concerns about protein intake. She said many people eat more protein than needed when they eat meat, and its easy to fulfill protein needs on a plant-based diet. People also associate veganism with wealth. For example, one writer for the International Business Times who tried a vegan diet complained that cool vegan recipes often require expensive ingredients. However, vegan advocates dispute that ...
In this episode of The Dr. Hedberg Show, I interview dietitian Diana Rodgers in a discussion about plant-based diets, meat, and her upcoming documentary and book project Sacred Cow. Speaking to Diana was a breathe of fresh air among all the misinformation out there about plant-based diets and meat. We discussed the potential pitfalls of plant-based diets including protein and micronutrient deficiencies. Diana covered important information about the true environmental impact of meat and how important grazing cows are to the environment. You should come away from this interview with a better understanding of plant-based diets, meat, and its environmental and socioeconomic impact. I urge you to support Dianas Sacred Cow project and to look out for the upcoming documentary ...

A randomized controlled trial found that a Mediterranean-type diet can dramatically lower the risk of subsequent heart attacks. How does it compare with plant-based diet data?
Researchers analyzing stroke risk found that vegetarians were slightly more likely to have a hemorrhagic stroke, though less likely to have other types of heart disease compared to people who did not follow a plant-based diet.
For diabetes in particular, observational studies suggest that persons who follow a plant-based diet have a lower risk for diabetes, and an RCT demonstrated reductions in HbA1c in patients with diabetes randomized to a vegan diet compared to the standard American Diabetes Association diet.
Studies have noted that a plant-based diet can lower IGF-1 and prostate cancer risk, but that a vegan diet is necessary for significant results.
Several diets are known to lower the risk for cardiovascular events, but few studies have looked specifically at heart failure. New findings suggest a plant-based diet may reduce the risk for incident heart failure.

Why do so many food plants contain cyanide? There are two answers, Olsen says. Cyanide acts as a primitive pesticide that discourages insects that feed on plants. The very earliest farmers, selecting plants to bring into cultivation, might have found these clean plants particularly attractive. By selecting plants that hadnt been chewed up by insects, they may have inadvertently selected ones that were cyanogenic.. But the second and perhaps more important reason is that as plant toxins go, cyanide is a manageable one. The cyanide in apples and peaches, for example, is in their seeds and pits, which usually are discarded.. In addition, Olsen says, even if an edible plant part contains the poison, it is easy to get rid of by crushing the plant then washing the mash. Crushing releases the water-soluble cyanide, which is carried off in the water.. Disabling the genes that code for cyanide production also is straightforward. It took only one genetic mutation, for example, to turn the toxic bitter ...
A 2017 review article addressed the pros and cons of plant-based diets for people with kidney disease (Gluba-Brzózka, 2017). The National Kidney Foundation (NKF) recommends plant-based diets for people with chronic kidney disease (CKD). According to the NKF, With careful planning, vegetarianism, or even part-time vegetarian eating, is not only safe, but also beneficial to kidney disease patients (NKF, 2020). Beyond meeting nutrient needs, plant-based eating can confer benefits to those with CKD. For instance, soy intake in people with CKD has been associated with lower serum creatinine, phosphorus, and triglycerides (Gluba-Brzózka, 2017). There have been a handful of clinical trials using a plant-based diet as an intervention for people with CKD. Results include lower serum phosphorus and with no change in serum albumin, which is a measure of protein status (Gluba-Brzózka, 2017). As long as amounts of protein, sodium, potassium, and phosphorus are kept in check, a vegan diet can be ...
But the wild food we gather has not been vetted for edibility like grocery store food. Before you put anything in your mouth, find a trusted reference on the edible plants of your area. Search any piece of land that is legally available and clean of pesticides and other chemical and yellow animal fluids. Always do your harvesting away from any trail, and dont ever wipe out a location, so the patch can recover. And if you are lucky enough to have a backyard, explore every square inch ...
When you go for a medical check-up or physical, does your doctor ever mention that what you eat and what you dont eat affects your health tremendously? When you feel sick or are in the midst of battling chronic illness or disease, does your doctor instruct you in the benefits of eating a more plant-based diet or does he simply write you another prescription and say,lets see if this helps? If the answer to these questions is no, then the bigger question becomes, have our doctors been instructed on how to teach their patients about plant-based diets and how they can literally reverse disease by encouraging patients to adopt it?. The scientific research is available so why arent so many of our doctors giving us this very important medical information? Is it possible that they just dont know? A team of healthcare professionals have issued a new, very exciting, special report about the benefits of plant-based diets, using case studies and a multitude of medical references. This is a call to ...
