Researchers report high fat diet in female mice can have an epigenetic effect on future generations. The study found high fat diets had lead to an increased risk of obesity, insulin resistance and addictive behaviors over three generations of offspring.
The loss of fat metabolizing protein PPARalpha in the hippocampus can lead to dementia, a new study finds.
According to researchers, high fat diets appear to prompt microglia to start consuming synapses in mice.
Researchers have identified causal links between microbiota gene content and metabolic activity which impacts personal differences in drug metabolism. The findings help explain why some people don't respond to, or have adverse side effects from taking medications, while others don't.
Researchers report microglia, immune cells found in the brain, may trigger overeating and increase weight gain as a response to high fat diets. The study suggests targeting microglia could provide new treatment options to help curb obesity.
According to researchers, a cancer causing gene may affect the circadian clock and metabolism by binding to promoter regions in genes responsible for maintaining these biological functions.
According to a new study, synthetic chemicals found in some insecticides can bind to melatonin receptors, creating a higher risk for people to develop diabetes and other metabolic disorders.
A new study traces the mechanisms that link environmental signals and our circadian clocks.
