Caloric restriction for anti-aging MedicalXpress September 7, 2017 by John Hewitt

"A recent paper published in GeroScience by researchers at the University of Oklahoma provides some much-needed food for thought in the field of caloric restriction. The title, "Role of DNA methylation in the dietary restriction mediated cellular memory," suggests some underlying mechanisms have been uncovered that can explain the presumed healthful benefits of dietary restriction (DR). If so, then what is the nature of these apparent relationships, and what are their benefits?"

Olive Oil Ingredient Slows Brain Cancer, Shows New Study Forbes Pharma & Healthcare Jun 9, 2017

"oleic acid, olive oil’s main monounsaturated fatty acid, stops cancer-causing protein activity in brain cells.""Researchers found that the fatty acid inhibits the activity of a cell protein called Musashi homolog2, which in turn prevents the protein from stopping the production of a microRNA called miR-7 that suppresses brain tumor formation.  In other words, oleic acid empowers miR-7 to do its job of preventing tumors by thwarting its nemesis protein, Musashi homolog2."

Broccoli may offer protection against liver cancer, study shows Knowridge Science Report November 27, 2016

"Consumption of broccoli has increased in the United States over the last few decades as scientists have reported that eating the vegetable 3-5 times per week can lower the risk of many types of cancer including breast, prostate, and colon cancers.

A new study from the University of Illinois reports that including broccoli in the diet may also protect against liver cancer."

Eating Tomatoes Might Lower Your Risk of Prostate Cancer The Dealy Meal Nov 15, 2016

“Because lycopene is present in only a few foods, and approximately 85 percent of lycopene in the American diet comes from tomatoes and tomato products, people can really focus on eating tomato-containing foods,” John W. Erdman Jr., a professor at UIUC and the senior author on this research, told the American Institute for Cancer Research. “That’s a pretty easy way to reduce risk of cancer.”

Lycopene's Effects on Cancer Cell Functions within Monolayer and Spheroid Cultures Nutr Cancer. 2016; 68(2): 350-63

"Ovarian cancer spheroids initially showed a decreased proliferation and after 14 days increased cell viability upon lycopene treatment, confirming the potential of lycopene to reduce cancer cell growth in short-term cultures and also indicate enhanced cell viability over prolonged exposure"

An Apple a Day May Keep Heart Doctor Away Prof. Robert DiSilvestro The Ohio State University

In a study of healthy, middle-age adults, consuming an apple a day for four weeks lowered blood levels of a probable contributor to atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries, by 40 percent. The study found that the apples lowered blood levels of oxidized low-density lipoprotein, or LDL, the so-called "bad" cholesterol, according to lead researcher Robert DiSilvestro, a professor in Ohio State's Department of Human Nutrition and scientist with the university's Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center. The center is the research arm of the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences.
