Carotenoid intakes, assessed by dietary questionnaire, are associated with plasma carotenoid concentrations in an elderly population. (1/2539)High intakes of fruits and vegetables and of carotenoids are associated with a lower risk for a variety of chronic diseases. It is therefore important to test the validity of dietary questionnaires that assess these intakes. We compared intakes of five carotenoids, as calculated from responses to the Willett 126-item food-frequency questionnaire, with corresponding biochemical measures. Subjects included 346 women and 201 men, aged 67-93 y, in the Framingham Heart Study. Unadjusted correlations were higher among women than men as follows: alpha-carotene 0.33 and 0.18, beta-carotene, 0.36 and 0.25; beta-cryptoxanthin, 0.44 and 0.32; lycopene, 0.35 and 0.21; and lutein + zeaxanthin, 0.27 and 0.10, respectively. Adjustment for age, energy intake, body mass index (BMI, kg/m2), plasma cholesterol concentrations and smoking reduced the gender differences, respectively, to the following: alpha-carotene 0.30 and 0.28; beta-carotene, 0.34 and 0.31; beta-cryptoxanthin, 0.45 and 0.36; lycopene, 0.36 and 0.31; and lutein + zeaxanthin, 0.24 and 0.14. Plots of adjusted mean plasma carotenoid concentration by quintile of respective carotenoid intake show apparent greater responsiveness among women, compared with men, to dietary intake of alpha- and beta-carotene and beta-cryptoxanthin, but similar blood-diet relationships for lycopene and lutein + zeaxanthin. Reported daily intake of fruits and vegetables correlated most strongly with plasma beta-cryptoxanthin and beta-carotene among women and with plasma alpha- and beta-carotene among men. With the exception of lutein + zeaxanthin, this dietary questionnaire does provide reasonable rankings of carotenoid status among elderly subjects, with the strongest correlations for beta-cryptoxanthin. Appropriate adjustment of confounders is necessary to clarify these associations among men. (+info)
Glutathione-S-transferase (GSTM1) genetic polymorphisms do not affect human breast cancer risk, regardless of dietary antioxidants. (2/2539)Glutathione-S-transferases catalyze the detoxication of carcinogen metabolites and reactive oxygen species (ROS) produced through a number of mechanisms. Glutathione-S-transferase (GST) M1 is polymorphic, and the null allele results in a lack of enzyme activity. Because there are indications that ROS may be involved in breast carcinogenesis, we sought to determine whether the GSTM1 null allele was associated with increased breast cancer, particularly among women with lower consumption of dietary sources of alpha-tocopherol, carotenoids and ascorbic acid. In a study of diet and cancer in western New York, women with primary, incident, histologically confirmed breast cancer (n = 740) and community controls (n = 810) were interviewed and an extensive food-frequency questionnaire administered. A subset of these women provided a blood specimen. DNA was extracted and genotyping performed for GSTM1. Data were available for 279 cases and 340 controls. The null allele did not increase breast cancer risk, regardless of menopausal status. There were also no differences in associations between the polymorphism and risk among lower and higher consumers of dietary sources of antioxidants or smokers and nonsmokers. These results indicate that GSTM1 genetic polymorphisms are not associated with breast cancer risk, even in an environment low in antioxidant defenses. (+info)
Dietary variety within food groups: association with energy intake and body fatness in men and women. (3/2539)BACKGROUND: Short-term experimental studies suggest that dietary variety may influence body fatness but no long-term human studies have been reported. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine whether dietary variety within food groups influences energy intake and body fatness. DESIGN: Seventy-one healthy men and women (aged 20-80 y), who provided accurate reports of dietary intake and completed a body-composition assessment, were studied. RESULTS: Dietary variety was positively associated with energy intake within each of 10 food groups (r = 0.27-0.56, P < 0.05). In multiple regression analysis with age and sex controlled for, dietary variety of sweets, snacks, condiments, entrees, and carbohydrates (as a group) was positively associated with body fatness (partial r = 0.38, P = 0.001) whereas variety from vegetables was negatively associated (partial r = -0.31, P = 0.01) (R2 = 0.46, P < 0.0001). In separate models, both a variety ratio (variety of vegetables/variety of sweets, snacks, condiments, entrees, and carbohydrates) and percentage dietary fat were significant predictors of body fatness (controlled for age and sex, partial r = -0.39 and 0.31, respectively, P < 0.01). However, dietary fat was no longer significantly associated with body fatness when the variety ratio and dietary fat were included in the same model. CONCLUSIONS: Our data, coupled with those of previous short-term studies, suggest that a high variety of sweets, snacks, condiments, entrees, and carbohydrates coupled with a low variety of vegetables promotes long-term increases in energy intake and body fatness. These findings may help explain the rising prevalence of obesity. (+info)
Chemoprevention of cancer by isothiocyanates, modifiers of carcinogen metabolism. (4/2539)Substantial quantities of isothiocyanates are released upon consumption of normal amounts of a number of cruciferous vegetables. Some of these naturally occurring isothiocyanates such as phenethyl isothiocyanate (PEITC), benzyl isothiocyanate (BITC) and sulforaphane are effective inhibitors of cancer induction in rodents treated with carcinogens. A large amount of data demonstrate that isothiocyanates act as cancer chemopreventive agents by favorably modifying carcinogen metabolism via inhibition of Phase 1 enzymes and/or induction of Phase 2 enzymes. These effects are quite specific, depending on the structure of the isothiocyanate and carcinogen. One of the most thoroughly studied examples of isothiocyanate inhibition of rodent carcinogenesis is inhibition of 4-(methylnitrosamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanone (NNK)-induced lung tumorigenesis by PEITC. This occurs because PEITC blocks the metabolic activation of NNK, resulting in increased urinary excretion of detoxified metabolites. Similar effects on NNK metabolism have been observed in smokers who consumed watercress, a source of PEITC. On the basis of these observations and knowledge of the carcinogenic constituents of cigarette smoke, a strategy for chemoprevention of lung cancer can be developed. (+info)
Pancreatic cancer risk and nutrition-related methyl-group availability indicators in male smokers. (5/2539)BACKGROUND: Few risk factors for pancreatic cancer have been identified, with age and cigarette smoking being the most consistent. The protective effect associated with consumption of fruits and vegetables-the major dietary sources of folate-is suggestive of a role for factors influencing cellular methylation reactions; however, to our knowledge, no study has investigated this relationship. Whether biochemical indicators of methyl-group availability are associated with exocrine pancreatic cancer risk was the focus of this investigation. METHODS: We conducted a nested case-control study within the Alpha-Tocopherol, Beta-Carotene Cancer Prevention Study cohort of 29133 male Finnish smokers aged 50-69 years. One hundred twenty-six subjects with incident exocrine pancreatic cancer were matched by date of baseline blood draw (+/-30 days), study center, age (+/-5 years), trial intervention group, and completion of dietary history to 247 control subjects, who were alive and free from cancer at the time the case subjects were diagnosed. Odds ratios (ORs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were determined by use of conditional logistic regression. Reported P values are two-tailed. RESULTS: Serum folate and pyridoxal-5'-phosphate (PLP) concentrations showed statistically significant inverse dose-response relationships with pancreatic cancer risk, with the highest serum tertiles having approximately half the risk of the lowest (folate: OR = 0.45; 95% CI = 0.24-0.82; P for trend = .009, and PLP: OR = 0.48; 95% CI = 0.26-0.88; P for trend = .02). An increased pancreatic cancer risk was also observed with greater exposure to cigarettes (e.g., pack-years [number of packs smoked per day x number of years of smoking], highest versus lowest quartile: OR = 2.13; 95% CI = 1.13-3.99; P for trend = .04). CONCLUSIONS: These results support the hypothesis that maintaining adequate folate and pyridoxine status may reduce the risk of pancreatic cancer and confirm the risk previously associated with cigarette smoking.

Comparison of serum carotenoid responses between women consuming vegetable juice and women consuming raw or cooked vegetables. (6/2539)The objective of this study was to examine serum concentrations of alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, lutein, lycopene, and beta-cryptoxanthin due to consumption of vegetable juice versus raw or cooked vegetables. Subjects included female breast cancer patients who had undergone surgical resection and who were enrolled in a feasibility study for a trial examining the influence of diet on breast cancer recurrence. A high-vegetable, low-fat diet was the focus of the intervention, and some of the subjects were specifically encouraged to consume vegetable juice. At 12 months, blood samples were collected and analyzed for carotenoid concentrations via high-performance liquid chromatography methodology. Matched analysis and paired t test were conducted on two groups: those who consumed vegetable juice (the juice group) and those who consumed raw or cooked vegetables (no juice group). Serum concentrations of alpha-carotene and lutein were significantly higher in the vegetable juice group than in the raw or cooked vegetable group (P < 0.05 and P = 0.05, respectively). Paired t test analysis did not demonstrate a significant difference in serum values of beta-carotene, lycopene, and beta-cryptoxanthin between subjects consuming juice and those not consuming any juice. These results suggest that alpha-carotene and lutein appear to be more bioavailable in the juice form than in raw or cooked vegetables. Therefore, the food form consumed may contribute to the variability in serum carotenoid response to vegetable and fruit interventions in clinical studies. (+info)
Food groups and colorectal cancer risk. (7/2539)Most studies of diet and colorectal cancer have considered nutrients and micronutrients, but the role of foods or food groups remains open to debate. To elucidate the issue, we examined data from a case-control study conducted between 1992 and 1997 in the Swiss canton of Vaud. Cases were 223 patients (142 men, 81 women) with incident, histologically confirmed colon (n= 119) or rectal (n= 104) cancer (median age 63 years), linked with the Cancer Registry of the Swiss Canton of Vaud, and controls were 491 subjects (211 men, 280 women, median age 58 years) admitted to the same university hospital for a wide spectrum of acute non-neoplastic conditions unrelated to long-term modifications of diet. Odds ratios (OR) were obtained after allowance for age, sex, education, smoking, alcohol, body mass index, physical activity and total energy intake. Significant associations were observed for refined grain (OR = 1.32 for an increase of one serving per day), and red meat (OR = 1.54), pork and processed meat (OR = 1.27), alcohol (OR = 1.28), and significant protections for whole grain (OR = 0.85), raw (OR = 0.85) and cooked vegetables (OR = 0.69), citrus (OR = 0.86) and other fruits (OR = 0.85), and for coffee (OR = 0.73). Garlic was also protective (OR = 0.32 for the highest tertile of intake). These findings in a central European population support the hypothesis that a diet rich in refined grains and red meat increases the risk of colorectal cancer; they, therefore, support the recommendation to substitute whole grains for refined grain, to limit meat intake, and to increase fruit and vegetable consumption.

Potassium, magnesium, and fruit and vegetable intakes are associated with greater bone mineral density in elderly men and women. (8/2539)BACKGROUND: Osteoporosis and related fractures will be growing public health problems as the population ages. It is therefore of great importance to identify modifiable risk factors. OBJECTIVE: We investigated associations between dietary components contributing to an alkaline environment (dietary potassium, magnesium, and fruit and vegetables) and bone mineral density (BMD) in elderly subjects. DESIGN: Dietary intake measures were associated with both cross-sectional (baseline) and 4-y longitudinal change in BMD among surviving members of the original cohort of the Framingham Heart Study. Dietary and supplement intakes were assessed by food-frequency questionnaire, and BMD was measured at 3 hip sites and 1 forearm site. RESULTS: Greater potassium intake was significantly associated with greater BMD at all 4 sites for men and at 3 sites for women (P < 0.05). Magnesium intake was associated with greater BMD at one hip site for both men and women and in the forearm for men. Fruit and vegetable intake was associated with BMD at 3 sites for men and 2 for women. Greater intakes of potassium and magnesium were also each associated with less decline in BMD at 2 hip sites, and greater fruit and vegetable intake was associated with less decline at 1 hip site, in men. There were no significant associations between baseline diet and subsequent bone loss in women. CONCLUSION: These results support the hypothesis that alkaline-producing dietary components, specifically, potassium, magnesium, and fruit and vegetables, contribute to maintenance of BMD. (+info)

Leaf vegetables - Redorbit
Leaf vegetables are leaves from various plants that are edible with some leaves having tender shoots, such as beet greens, attached. Leaf vegetables are very high in nutrition and may be used in various culinary dishes.. While there are over a thousand species of leaf vegetables, they generally come from plants that are short-lived such as lettuce and spinach. Leaf vegetables are high in vitamin K which is caused from the photosynthesis that takes place during the growing phase. Anyone on anticoagulant therapy such as Coumadin will need to monitor their intake of leaf vegetables, as they will interfere with the anticoagulant levels in the blood stream.. Other benefits of eating leaf vegetables is that they are low in fat and calories, high in protein and fiber, high iron and calcium content as well as vitamin C, folate, magnesium, and carotenoids.. During periods of famine, leaves from fodder crops such as alfalfa, clover, and most grasses, can also be eaten. The leaves can be dried or ground ...
Vegetables for Fatty Liver - Fatty-Liver.com
Frozen vegetables go through a process of scalding and freezing few hours after harvest, compared with fresh vegetables that sold in market days after harvest.. The freezing condition of the vegetables has a significant implications for the conservation and vitamins. The lower the freezing temperature is, so the preservation of vitamins during the freeze gets better. In general, vegetables are kept frozen at about minus 86 °F (or 30 °C).. The fiber content in vegetables is not damaged at all by the freezing process, and even found a small increase in their contents.. The mineral content of vegetables is not affected as-well by the freezing process. Moreover, frozen vegetables require a shorter cooking time than fresh vegetables, and thus have significant impact of the antioxidant vitamins passed through the cooking compared to when you cook fresh vegetables.. Another advantage of frozen vegetables is that they are available all year round. However, frozen vegetables lose some of their ...

Green Vegetables and Women's Health - Full Text View - ClinicalTrials.gov
The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend that individuals consume 4.5 to 5 cups fruits and vegetables daily. However, at current intake levels, fruit consumption will have to improve by more than 100% and vegetable intake by 50% to meet this recommendation. Importantly, intake of brightly colored fruits and vegetables is even lower when potatoes are not considered. It is possible that improved fruit and vegetable intake will have beneficial health effects. For example, higher intakes of fruits and vegetables, and particularly cruciferous vegetables (e.g., broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, etc.), are associated with lower rates of many degenerative diseases, including some cancers, yet this group of vegetables may continue to be under-consumed due to their strong flavors. A supplement made from these vegetables (Cruciferous CompleteTM made by Standard Process Inc. Palmyra, WI) contains a group of phytochemicals called glucosinolates that can shift estrogen metabolism in a ...

What is the Green Bean Diet for Dogs? Does it work? - PetPlace
Hi - thanks for your email. I have heard of the Green Bean Diet to help dogs loose weight. This is basically how it works. You cut back on your dogs food and substitute a portion of their food with green beans. It should be started and stopped gradually. When used, it is recommended that you decrease the food quantity by 10% and replace with an equal amount of green beans. After 2 to 3 days, decrease the food quantity of dog food by another 10%, again replacing the dog food for the same quantity of green beans. You do this until you are feeding about 50% of their regular good quantity and 50% green beans. The green beans are to help the dog feel full while supplying few calories. Once the dog reaches its ideal weight, you can begin cutting out the green beans and returning them to a maintenance amount of food. Ive heard other vets do it by gradually decreasing the food intake by 50% and substituting it with 1 can of green beans per day. This will really vary with the size of the dog. It seems ...

Fruit and Vegetable Intake During Infancy and Early Childhood | American Academy of Pediatrics
We found that ∼1 in 3 6-year-old children consumed fruit less than once daily and ∼1 in 5 consumed vegetables less than once daily. After adjustment for several factors, children in our study who consumed fruits and vegetables less than once daily during late infancy had a 2.5 times higher odds of eating fruit, and 2.4 times higher odds of eating vegetables less than once daily at age 6 years. These findings highlight the importance of infant feeding guidance that encourages the intake of fruits and vegetables.. Our finding from a national cohort of infants that the infrequent intake of fruits and vegetables during infancy is associated with intake in childhood is consistent with 2 previous, yet smaller, studies.17,18 There are several possible explanations for these findings. Infants consuming fruits and vegetables more frequently during late infancy may have been offered fruits and vegetables more frequently, establishing a taste preference and familiarity for fruits and vegetables that ...

Twig - Vegetable Oils as Fuel : Twig
Download transcript. The same oil we cook with can also be used as an alternative source of fuel to run a car engine.. Rudolf Diesel, Mechanical engineer. As early as 1900, Rudolf Diesel - designer of the diesel engine - proved his car engine could run on peanut oil at the Paris World Fair. This is because all vegetable oils are made up of long chains of carbon atoms. A very similar molecular structure to diesel and gasoline.. Pure vegetable oil used as a fuel is known as SVO - Straight Vegetable Oil.. Straight vegetable oil = SVO. Normally, old vegetable oil is converted chemically into biodiesel. This is a renewable fuel that can be mixed with diesel, to give off safer emissions than diesel alone.. It is also possible to reuse pure vegetable oil for cooking, as long as you filter the oil first.. The main problem with both pure and mixed vegetable oils as fuels is that vegetable oil is very thick and viscous, and can damage the engine.. One solution is to use separate diesel and vegetable oil ...

15 Best Frozen Fruits And Vegetables - eBlogfa.com
While some fruits and vegetables can easily lose flavor when frozen, others become sweeter when exposed to very low temperatures. Frozen fruits and vegetables makes you fit, boosts your antioxidant intake and saves you money. During the winter season in most countries, the produce and supply of fresh fruits and vegetables becomes limited hence most people will tend to consume frozen and canned fruits and veggies. According to researchers, canned food loses a lot of nutrients in the preservation process. On the contrary frozen vegetables are thought to be healthier than fresh produce sold in groceries and supermarkets. Once a vegetable or fruit has been plucked or picked from the farm, it starts to slowly lose nutrients and how long it takes for you to eat it after it has been plucked or picked, determines the nutritional value you are going to get from it. Freezing of fruits or vegetables helps retain their freshness at the same time locking the essential nutrients found in them. The following ...
Leaf vegetable - Wikipedia
Leaf vegetables, also called leafy greens, salad greens, pot herbs, vegetable greens, or simply greens, are plant leaves eaten as a vegetable, sometimes accompanied by tender petioles and shoots. Although they come from a very wide variety of plants, most share a great deal with other leaf vegetables in nutrition and cooking methods. Nearly one thousand species of plants with edible leaves are known. Leaf vegetables most often come from short-lived herbaceous plants, such as lettuce and spinach. Woody plants of various species also provide edible leaves. The leaves of many fodder crops are also edible for humans, but usually only eaten under famine conditions. Examples include; alfalfa, clover, most grasses, including wheat and barley. These plants are often much more prolific than traditional leaf vegetables, but exploitation of their rich nutrition is difficult, due to their high fiber content. This can be overcome by further processing such as drying and grinding into powder or pulping and ...

Green VegetablesGreen vegetables, especially green leafy vegetables exhibit unusual wide anti-cancer powers. A recent Italian study showed a powerful protection from the frequent consumption of green vegetables against the risk of most cancers. Green vegetables such as spinach, fenugreek, dark green lettuce and broccoli, are full of many different antioxidants, including beta carotene and folic acid, as well as lutein - a little-known antioxidant. Some scientists believe that lutein may even be as powerful as beta carotene in blocking cancer. Green leafy vegetables are rich in lutein. Darkest green vegetables should be chosen to derive maximum carotenoids and other anticancer agents. According to Frederick Khachik, Ph.D., a research scientist at the Department of Agriculture, "The darker green they are the most cancer preventing carotenoids they have". He also says lutein and other carotenoids are not lost during cooking or freezing, although heat exercises harmful effects on more fragile ...
Researcher Discovers How Vegetables Fight Cancer - The Santa Barbara Independent
The mechanism by which certain vegetables can slow the growth of cancer cells was detailed in a recent article in the scientific journal Carcinogenesis. The articles author, Leslie Wilson, is a professor of biochemistry and pharmacology at UCSB. His research discovered how the compounds from broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables - that is, edible plants in the family Brassicaceae, which also includes many leafy greens - work on a cellular level to inhibit the growth of breast cancer.. "There are many active cancer-fighting agents in these vegetables," Wilson said. The cancer-fighting compounds, known as isothiocyanates, come from a substance known as glucoraphanin, which is particularly abundant in broccoli and cauliflower. It is especially prevalent in the young sprouts of these two vegetables, but is also present in many cruciferous vegetables including cabbage, kale, and collard greens. When the vegetables are chewed, the isothiocyanates are produced.. The particular compound Wilsons ...

Predicting gender differences in liking for vegetables and preference for a variety of vegetables among 11-year-old children
We studied the factors that predict liking for vegetables and preference for a variety of vegetables among schoolchildren. Additionally, we examined if there were gender differences in the predictors that explain the hypothesized higher scores in liking vegetables and preferences among girls. The data from the PRO GREENS project included 424 Finnish children (response rate 77%) aged 11 to 12. The children completed validated measures about social and environmental factors related to their liking for vegetables and preferences both at baseline 2009 and follow-up 2010. The associations were examined with regression and mediation analyses. The strongest predictors of both girls and boys liking and preferences were higher levels of eating vegetables together with the family, previous vegetable intake and a lower level of perceived barriers. Liking was additionally predicted by a lower level of parental demand that their child should eat vegetables. Girls reported higher levels of liking and ...

Insects Associated With Vegetable Crops in Georgia
Approximately 180,000 acres of vegetables are grown in Georgia annually with a farm-gate value in 2003 of over $900 million. The estimated control costs and crop damage associated with vegetable insect and other arthropod pests averages about 3-9% of the farm-gate value over all vegetables, so insect management is critical to profitable vegetable production in the State. Insect management in vegetables is very dynamic in Georgia because of the diversity of crops, the 10°F average temperature difference between the north and south, and the multiple, overlapping growing seasons. The use of integrated pest management (IPM) is recommended, but this requires considerable information about the pests. The following information on insect biology and the type of damage by vegetable insects should assist vegetable pest managers in their efforts to economically reduce insect problems using a biologically based approach.

Parasitic contamination of fresh vegetables sold at central markets in Khartoum state, Sudan | Annals of Clinical Microbiology...
Fresh vegetables are considered as vital nutrients of a healthy diet as they supply the body with essential supplements. The consumption of raw vegetables is the main way for transmission of intestinal parasitic organisms. This study was aimed at detecting the parasitic contamination in fresh vegetables sold in two central open-aired markets in Khartoum state, Sudan. In this prospective cross-sectional study, a total of 260 fresh vegetable samples and 50 water samples used to sprinkle vegetable(s) were collected from two central open-aired markets (namely; Elshaabi and Central markets) during November 2011 to May 2012.

Improving quality and treatment of water and vegetables in fresh-cut vegetable processing : Doctoral Dissertation
Vegetables contain 90‒96% water; the remainder is composed of components such as carbohydrates, proteins and nutrients. In vegetal cells, water is present in different forms; part of this water can easily be removed and a part cannot. Depending on their size, the substances of which vegetables are composed form different kinds of solutions in combination with water. Most of the organic load and nutrients of the vegetables processed were released into water from the peeling of root vegetables, whereas the volume of the water came primarily from the rinsing and washing of vegetables. Wash-ing is an important step in fresh-cut vegetable processing; it removes soil and debris, and reduces microbial populations residing on the vegetable surface. Washing is often the only step that can remove foreign material and tissue exudates, as well as inactivate pathogens. Water plays a dual role in the fresh-cut vegetable processing: it both reduces and transmits microorganisms to vegetables. The high quality ...

Effects of chronic and acute fruit and vegetable juice consumption on cardiovascular disease risk factors - Northumbria...
Diets low in fruit and vegetables are reportedly responsible for 2.7 million deaths annually from cardiovascular diseases (CVD) and certain cancers. A daily fruit and vegetable intake of five 80 g portions is recommended for chronic disease prevention. However, in the UK, average adult consumption is less than three portions. It is suggested that fruit juice should only count as one portion. However, fruit juices are a beneficial source of phytochemicals. The preliminary results of two randomized, controlled, crossover, dietary intervention studies investigating the effects of chronic and acute consumption of fruit and vegetable puree and juice based drinks (FVPJ) on bioavailability, antioxidant status, vascular reactivity, and risk factors for CVD are reported. In the first study, 39 volunteers consumed 200 ml FVPJ, or fruit-flavoured control, daily for six weeks. In the second study, 24 volunteers consumed 400 mL FVPJ, or sugar-matched control, on the morning of the study day. Blood and urine ...
Biosafety of Campylobacter jejuni from raw vegetables consumed as ulam with reference to their resistance to antibiotics -...
Antibiotic resistance in campylobacter is an emerging global public health problem after MRSA and VRE. Fluoroquinolone and macrolide resistance have been found to be more common in this world leading foodborne pathogen. A total of fifty-six isolates of Campylobacter jejuni obtained from raw vegetables which are consumed as ulam (salad) in Malaysia, were tested with 12 antibiotics used clinically and agriculturally. The resistance was determined using the disk diffusion method. Results were determined by hierarchic numerical methods to cluster strains and antibiotics according to similarity profiles. Fifty five C. jejuni isolates from different isolation sites were all clustered together into ten groups. This indicates that the commodities (raw salad vegetables/ulam) where the isolates originated might share a similar source of cross-contamination along the production route. All antibiotics tested correlated and there were four groupings reflecting their mode of actions. Generally, C. jejuni ...
An application of data mining to fruit and vegetable sample identiﬁcation using Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry
One of the uses of Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) is in the detection of pesticide residues in fruit and vegetables. In a high throughput laboratory there is the potential for sample swaps or mislabelling, as once a sample has been pre-processed to be injected into the GC-MS analyser, it is no longer distinguishable by eye. Possible consequences of such mistakes can be the destruction of large amounts of actually safe produce or pesticide-contaminated produce reaching the consumer. For the purposes of food safety and traceability, it can also be extremely valuable to know the source (country of origin) of a food product. This can help uncover fraudulent attempts of trying to sell food originating from countries deemed unsafe. In this study, we use the workflow environment ADAMS to examine whether we can determine the fruit/vegetable, and the country of origin of a sample from a GC-MS chromatogram. A workflow is used to generate data sets using different data pre-processing methods, ...

Ease of access improves fruit and vegetable consumption
The researchers observed a significant increase over the summer in the number of different fruits and vegetables in the households of the intervention group compared with the control group. The intervention group also reported greater increases in fruit and vegetable consumption. "Although the increases in fruit and vegetable consumption in the intervention group did not reach statistical significance, they did show a trend in the right direction," said Quandt. "In a larger group, we would expect that the CSA program would make a noticeable impact on quality of the families diets.". Intervention participants reported a willingness to pay at least a portion of the CSA cost in the future. In an overall evaluation of the Farm Fresh Healthy Living program, the participants reported positively on the variety of the produce provided, the better flavor of the local produce compared with grocery store produce, the chance to expose children to new foods, as well as the chance to eat foods that were too ...

Medical Advisor Journals by Kyle J. Norton: Food therapy - Vegetables - Cauliflower (Brassica Oleracea)
In the investigation of regular consumption of fresh and cooked Brassicaceae and its effect in reducing the risk of cancer and heart disease found that Anti-proliferative and chemoprotective effects towards DNA oxidative damage of fresh and cooked vegetable extracts were evaluated by 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-5-(3-carboxymethoxyphenyl)-2-(4-sulfophenyl)-2H-tetrazolium and Comet assays on HT-29 human colon carcinoma cells. The fresh vegetable extracts showed the highest anti-proliferative and antioxidant activities on HT-29 cells (broccoli,cauliflower = Brussels sprouts). No genotoxic activity was detected in any of the samples tested. The cooking methods that were applied influenced the anti-proliferative activity of Brassica extracts but did not alter considerably the antioxidant activity presented by the raw vegetables. Raw, microwaved, boiled (except broccoli) and steamed vegetable extracts, at different concentrations, presented a protective antioxidative action comparable with vitamin C ...

The conjugate of the antigen (histamine-bovine serum albumin 10 μg mL-1) was attached on the amino modified sensor surface with glutaraldehyde. During the measurement standard solutions or samples were mixed with antibodies of appropriate concentration (1:1000), the mixture was incubated for 1 minute and injected into the OWLS system. The amount of antibodies bound to immobilised antigen conjugates was inversely proportional to the histamine content. Relative substrate specificity of the antibody was studied, and besides histamine, only putrescine, cadaverine and agmatine were ...

What is freshness in fruits and vegetables? How does refrigeration play a role in maintaining the freshness? If so, is not the...
Many fresh vegetables and fruits retain their top quality only for a few days if they are not properly preserved. All green vegetables and fruits of high water content are best when fresh. If allowed to stand for a long period after gathering, they become wilted through loss of moisture by transpiration. The transpiration loss of water is one of the main processes that affect the commercial and physiological deterioration of fruits and vegetables after harvest. The moisture loss adversely affects the appearance, texture, flavour and weight of the products. Most notable effect of moisture loss is the softening of the tissues caused by the loss of turgidity. Storing them in the refrigerator can prevent this water loss. But the optimum storage temperature differs for vegetables and fruits ...
Eating more fruit and vegetables can substantially increase happiness levels
The study has policy implications, particularly in the developed world where the typical citizen eats an unhealthy diet. The findings could be used by health professionals to persuade people to consume more fruits and vegetables.. Dr Redzo Mujcic, research fellow at the University of Queensland, said: "Perhaps our results will be more effective than traditional messages in convincing people to have a healthy diet. There is a psychological payoff now from fruit and vegetables-not just a lower health risk decades later.". The authors found that alterations in fruit and vegetable intake were predictive of later alterations in happiness and satisfaction with life. They took into account many other influences, including changes in peoples incomes and life circumstances. One part of the study examined information from the Australian Go for 2&5 Campaign. The campaign was run in some Australian states which have promoted the consumption of two portions of fruit and five portions of vegetables each ...

A pot experiment was conducted to study the influences of four phosphorus on yield,cadmium(Cd) absorption and accumulation in leaf vegetables(spinach,pakchoi,willow leaf and round leaf amaranth) and the Cd availability in soil.Results showed that phosphate treatments could significantly promote vegetables growth,reduce the Cd concentrations in vegetable shoots and roots and increase Cd accumulation in four vegetables shoots compared with the control treatment.However,the Cd accumulation in the shoots didnt varied significantly with the phosphate treatments.A significantly negative linear relationship was found between soil pH and the available Cd.The capability of four phosphates in acidifying soil varied in following order:SSP(superphosphate)MAP(monoammonium phosphate),DAP(diammonium phosphate)DCP(dicalcium phosphate).The DCP treatment exhibited the highest yield,the lowest content of Cd in vegetable,the highest pH and the lowest soil available Cd.

A computer program such as KetoCalculator may be used to help generate recipes. The meals often have four components: heavy whipping cream, a protein-rich food (typically meat), a fruit or vegetable and a fat such as butter, vegetable oil, or mayonnaise. Only low-carbohydrate fruits and vegetables are allowed, which excludes bananas, potatoes, peas, and corn. Suitable fruits are divided into two groups based on the amount of carbohydrate they contain, and vegetables are similarly divided into two groups. Foods within each of these four groups may be freely substituted to allow for variation without needing to recalculate portion sizes. For example, cooked broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, and green beans are all equivalent. Fresh, canned, or frozen foods are equivalent, but raw and cooked vegetables differ, and processed foods are an additional complication. Parents are required to be precise when measuring food quantities on an electronic scale accurate to 1 g. The child must eat the ...
What is the relationship between the environment, body weight and fruit/vegetable consumption? | Nutrition Evidence Systematic...
An emerging body of evidence has documented the impact of the food environment and select behaviors on body weight in both children and adults.. Moderately strong evidence now indicates that the food environment is associated with dietary intake, especially less consumption of vegetables and fruits and higher body weight. The presence of supermarkets in local neighborhoods and other sources of vegetables and fruits are associated with lower body mass index (BMI), especially for low-income Americans, while lack of supermarkets and long distances to supermarkets are associated with higher BMI. Finally, limited but consistent evidence suggests that increased geographic density of fast food restaurants and convenience stores is also related to increased BMI.. 2010 DGAC Grade: Moderate. ...

Consuming Vegetables Linked To Decreased Breast Cancer Risk In African-American Women - Redorbit
Investigators from the Slone Epidemiology Center at Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM) have reported that African American women who consume more vegetables are less likely to develop estrogen receptor-negative breast cancer than women with low vegetable intake. The study results, published in the American Journal of Epidemiology, were based on data from the Black Womens Health Study (BWHS), a large follow-up study of 59,000 African American women from across the U.S. conducted by investigators at the Slone Epidemiology Center since 1995.. The investigators followed 51,928 participants in the BWHS for 12 years, during which time 1,268 cases of breast cancer developed. Among cases on which hormone receptor status was obtained, 35 percent were estrogen receptor-negative/progesterone receptor-negative (ER-/PR-) breast cancers. The incidence of ER-/PR- breast cancer was 43 percent lower among women consuming at least two vegetables per day compared with women who ate fewer than four ...
