    The potential links between dietary patterns and components and cardiometabolic risk. The totality of the evidence suggests that added sugar and certain saturated‐fat‐containing foods increase risk for cardiometabolic disease by metabolic mechanisms that are not mediated solely by positive energy balance and fat gain. There is also evidence that certain dietary patterns or components can increase �energy in� and/or �energy storage as fat� via mechanisms that are not explained solely by their specific contribution of calories to the �energy in� side of the energy balance equation. The strength of the links is indicated by the green lines as follows. Solid green line: supported by evidence from animal studies and clinical observational and dietary intervention studies. Dashed line: evidence from prospective cohort studies and/or clinical dietary intervention studies suggests heightened risk during critical developmental periods and in persons with compromised glucose tolerance or insulin sensitivity. Dotted line: supported mainly by evidence from observational and/or animal studies only. Dotted line w/X: evidence from 100% of the clinical dietary intervention studies do not support the evidence from the observational and animal studies.

  • May xx, 2018 - Metabolic Syndrome

    Metabolic Syndrome
    Source: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/obr.12699

    Established paradigm by which positive energy balance promotes the development of the metabolic syndrome. Positive energy balance leads to fat accumulation and larger and more insulin‐resistant adipocytes (a). The insulin resistance increases lipolytic activity and circulating free fatty acids (FFA) (b). While lipolytic activity is higher in visceral adipose tissue than subcutaneous adipose, upper body subcutaneous adipose is a major contributor to the increased levels of FFA 328, 329. High levels of FFA can mediate muscle (c) 330 and liver (d) 331 insulin resistance. Hepatic uptake of FFA leads to increased liver lipid (e), which is associated with liver insulin resistance (f) 332 and promotes very‐low‐density lipoprotein (VLDL) production/secretion (g) and dyslipidaemia (h) 328, 333. Increased exposure to circulating triglyceride promotes intramyocellular lipid accumulation (i) 334, which is associated with insulin resistance (j) and type 2 diabetes 332. Inflammatory factors released by insulin‐resistant visceral adipose tissue (k) may also promote hepatic insulin resistance (l) and lipid accumulation (m) 119.

  • May xx, 2018 - Fructose

    Fructose and Obesity
    Source: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/obr.12699

    Potential mechanisms by which consumption of fructose promotes the development of metabolic syndrome The initial phosphorylation of dietary fructose in the liver is largely catalysed by fructokinase C (a), which is not regulated by hepatic energy status 122, 123. This results in unregulated fructose uptake and metabolism by the liver. The excess substrate leads to increased de novo lipogenesis (DNL) (b) 117, 127. DNL increases the intra‐hepatic lipid supply directly 127-129, via synthesis of fatty acids (c), and indirectly by inhibiting fatty acid oxidation (d) 120, 127. Increased intra‐hepatic lipid content promotes very‐low‐density lipoprotein (VLDL) production and secretion (e) 130. This leads to increased levels of circulating triglyceride (TG) and low‐density lipoprotein particles (dyslipidaemia) (f) 131, risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD) (g). Increased levels of hepatic lipid may also promote hepatic insulin resistance 132 by increasing levels of diacylglycerol, which may activate novel protein kinase C and lead to serine phosphorylation (serine P) of the insulin receptor and insulin receptor substrate 1 and impaired insulin action (h) 335. Because of selective insulin resistance, DNL is even more strongly activated in the insulin resistant liver (i) 336, which has the potential to generate a vicious cycle (circular arrows) that would be perpetuated by sustained fructose consumption. This cycle would be expected to further exacerbate VLDL production and secretion via increased intra‐hepatic lipid supply 130. Hepatic insulin resistance also promotes VLDL production/secretion (j) by increasing apolipoprotein B availability 337, 338 and apolipoprotein CIII synthesis 339 and by up‐regulating microsomal TG transfer protein expression (MTP) 336. This exacerbates and sustains exposure to circulating TG, leading to intramyocellular lipid accumulation (k) 334, impaired insulin signalling and whole‐body insulin resistance (l) 332. The fructokinase‐catalysed phosphorylation of fructose to fructose‐1‐phosphate, which results in conversion of adenosine triphosphate to adenosine monophosphate and a depletion of inorganic phosphate, leads to uric acid production via the purine degradation pathway (m) 121, 123-125. High levels of uric acid are associated and may contribute to increased risk for development of fatty liver (n) and CVD (o) 340-342. Fructose exposure in the intestine (p) 134, 135 and liver (q) 136 and fructose‐induced increases of visceral adipose (r) may promote inflammatory responses 117, 343 that further promote liver lipid accumulation (s) and/or impair hepatic insulin signalling (t) 119.

    Content is king
    Graphic source:http://www.marketingcharts.com/online/relevant-content-considered-most-effective-seo-tactic-72413/attachment/ascend2-most-effective-difficult-seo-tactics-nov2016/

    • Search rankings studies have indicated that the impact of relevant content continues to grow, and a new survey [download page] from Ascend2 and its Research Partners finds that marketers largely agree. Some 57% of the 256 marketing influencers surveyed around the world rated relevant content creation as being among their most effective SEO tactics, topping the proportion feeling that way about keyword/phrase research (49%).
    • These top-2 tactics in effectiveness are unchanged from last year�s survey, though the gap between them has narrowed somewhat.
    • As with last year�s iteration of the survey, relevant content creation continues to be perceived as the most difficult SEO tactic, followed by external and internal linking. The easiest tactic to execute is meta description/tags, though this is seen as being among the most effective methods by few respondents to the survey.
    • On an encouraging note, marketers seem to have confidence in the effectiveness of their SEO strategies. Roughly 8 in 10 describe themselves as either very successful (34%) or somewhat successful (47%), and a similar proportion say that effectiveness is either increasing significantly (42%) or marginally (40%).
    • Perhaps they feel good about their content creation skills?
    • About the Data: The Ascend2 data is based on a survey of 256 marketing influencers around the world, three-quarters of whom come from companies with at least 50 employees and 64% of whom are primarily B2B (45%) or B2B and B2C equally (19%).

  • More than 3 in 4 American adults engage in social media in some way, finds a report from The Harris Poll. The study indicates that of those engaged in social media, passive reacting or posts and content is the most common form of engagement, with far fewer mostly creating and posting original content. Still, users typically post about some areas more than others. Most commonly, adults post about their families, with about 1 in 3 saying they typically do so. Next up is humorous content such as memes, quizzes, lists and videos, with 3 in 10 typically posting such content. That fits with previous research indicating that humor is a key motivator of social sharing behavior. Meanwhile, adults are about as likely to post about pets (17%) as they are about kids, travel and food (each at 18%). Even in the run-up to the election, few (11%) profess to typically posting about politics, though. Unsurprisingly, these responses differ markedly by age and other demographic variables, as highlighted below: For youth (18-34), humorous content is most commonly shared (by 43%); The 35-44 bracket shares content about family the most, while also being more likely than other age groups to share about kids; Affluent Americans post about travel (26%) more commonly than other income groups; and Parents with kids under 18 in the household are more engaged with social media than those without kids in the household, and are equally or more likely to post about all the topics measured. Also as expected, the 18-34 age group is the most engaged with social media, as almost 9 in 10 engage in some way. This age group is also the most likely to be exposed to multiple ads on social media and to count those ads as an influence on their purchases, per MarketingCharts study data. Finally, a separate survey of Facebook users from Fractl indicates that men and women are equally likely to share funny videos or articles and news content. Results from the survey indicate that Millennials are the least likely to share political content and the most likely to share memes, with the opposite patterns true for Boomers. As for the buzz-worthy employee advocacy trend? Just 7% of respondents to the Harris Poll say they typically post about work, with this most common among 35-44-year-old females (15%). http://www.marketingcharts.com/online/heres-what-americans-say-they-most-commonly-post-about-on-social-media-69388/?utm_campaign=newsletter&utm_source=mc&utm_medium=thumbnail

    Young Adults
    Graphic source: http://www.marketingcharts.com/traditional/how-the-socioeconomic-characteristics-of-young-adults-have-changed-in-the-past-40-years-68788/attachment/censusbureau-changing-characteristics-young-adults-jul2016/
    At the age of 30, more than 7 in 10 young adults were married, had a child, were not enrolled in school, and lived on their own. That was in 1975. Fast forward 40 years, and just 32% fit that picture, per a new analysis released by the US Census Bureau. Young adults (30-year-olds) are putting off marriage and kids at far greater rather than they did 40 years ago. Indeed, as of last year, 57% had ever married, down from 89% in 1975. Likewise, less than half (47%) were living with a child, down from about three-quarters (76%) in 1975. As of last year, 7 in 10 young adults (30-year-olds) lived on their own, according to the analysis, down from 90% in 1975. That follows an earlier assessment from the Pew Research Center, which revealed that for the first time on record, 18-34-year-olds are more likely to be living with a parent than having any other living arrangement. Financial concerns likely play a role. While 30-year-olds today are more likely to have at least a high school diploma (90% vs. 80%) and be in the labor force (81% vs. 71%), those advances haven�t translated into other socioeconomic aspects of life. Namely, only 55% have a moderate income (between 66% and 200% of the national median household income), a drop from 71% in 1975. And just 33% are homeowners, a steep decline from 56% some 40 years ago. Financial instability has also changed the mindset of young parents, particularly as student debt has weighed heavily on the young population. Data contained in a recent MarketingCharts study on youth and financial services indicates that as of last year, 74% of parents aged 30-34 with children expected to attend college have started saving for that goal. In 2007, only 58% of parents of that age had started saving for their children�s college expenses. Part of that motivation seems to be an increased desire to not burden their children with student debt: 48% of young parents plan to pay for all college costs, triple the share (16%) from the earlier study period. The findings are interesting in light of marketers� strong focus on Millennials (of which there are many�). It�s worth keeping in mind that most of these youth are yet to �settle down,� at least in the traditional sense� As such, the attention paid to Millennials is likely more about capturing their loyalty (if that�s possible) rather than finding the highest-spending consumers.

    I love this graphic that shows how important collaboration is to addressing the tobacco problem. Tobacco is an environmental problem because of health effects associated with second-hand and third-hand exposures. Collaboration among government entities at various levels, along with coalition building among advocacy groups make for a more effective approach.

    Hazards of 2nd Hand Smoke
    Graphic source: http://skeptics.stackexchange.com/questions/10026/is-there-no-risk-free-level-of-second-hand-smoke
    Scientific assessments such as dose effect curves seek to evaluate the health risk associated to second-hand smoke exposure.
    • "The Surgeon General released a report in 2006 regarding the dangers of secondhand smoke (SHS). One of the claims in the report is:
    • There is NO risk-free level of secondhand smoke exposure, with even brief exposure adversely affecting the cardiovascular and respiratory system.
    • We know that secondhand smoke harms people's health, but many people assume that exposure to secondhand smoke in small doses does not do any significant damage to one's health. However, science has proven that there is NO risk-free level of exposure to secondhand smoke. Let me say that again: there is no safe level of exposure to secondhand smoke.
    • Breathing secondhand smoke for even a short time can damage cells and set the cancer process in motion. Brief exposure can have immediate harmful effects on blood and blood vessels, potentially increasing the risk of a heart attack. Secondhand smoke exposure can quickly irritate the lungs, or trigger an asthma attack. For some people, these rapid effects can be life-threatening. People who already have heart disease or respiratory conditions are at especially high risk."
    • Citation source: http://skeptics.stackexchange.com/questions/10026/is-there-no-risk-free-level-of-second-hand-smoke

    So, there you have it. The entire environment needs to be smoke-free to reduce the health hazards associated with exposure to second-hand smoke!

    National Women's Week
    Graphic source:https://www.womenshealth.gov/resources/images/nwhw/nwhw_logo.png

    "National Women's Health Week is an observance led by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women's Health. The goal is to empower women to make their health a priority. National Women's Health Week also serves as a time to help women understand what it means to be well.

    What does it mean to be a well woman?
    It's a state of mind. It's being as healthy as you can be. And, most importantly, it's about taking steps to improve your physical and mental health:

    • Visit a health care professional to receive regular checkups and preventive screenings.
    • Get active.
    • Eat healthy.
    • Pay attention to mental health, including getting enough sleep and managing stress.
    • Avoid unhealthy behaviors, such as smoking, texting while driving, and not wearing a seatbelt or bicycle helmet."

    It is hard to believe that it has been 19 years since I published the first webpages that turned into this Web site. Many thanks to the thousands of visitors who contributed millions of hits during the past 19 years, and for all the nice comments along the way. I will continue to strive to make this Web site a worthwhile place to spend your time and find credible public health and health information. Thank you so much!
