I have previously written about the evolving spread of obesity and the consequences to human health due to the expansion of adipose tissues – that are in themselves promoters of inflammation via adipokine production.
Obesity has become a major worldwide health problem, not least because it is strongly associated with a number of diseases, including insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, atherosclerosis and ischaemic heart disease, that reduce life expectancy and together have huge economic and societal consequences. Increasing evidence indicates that obesity is causally linked to a chronic low-grade inflammatory state which contributes to the development of obesity-linked disorders, in particular to metabolic dysfunction. It is now well established that adipose tissue is not only involved in energy storage but also functions as an endocrine organ that secretes various bio-active substances.

Internet shopping appears to be a safer in terms of BPA exposure risk because you will not touch a thermal till receipt. BPA a controversial chemical already strongly linked to a number of health complaints including heart disease is a component of the paper used to let you know how much the cost of living has gone up again!
Two studies have thrown the controversial compound bisphenol A (BPA) back into the limelight. One study found that the chemical is readily absorbed through the skin, while a second study found that people who routinely contact BPA-enriched till receipts have higher than average levels of the chemical in their bodies. These papers suggest that further management of public exposure to this chemical may be warranted.

This evening presentation will explore the latest research and clinical applications for phytonutrients related to gene expression, disease treatment/prevention, and personalized nutrition. It will provide a foundation for clinicians to detect and diagnose phytonutrient deficiencies in their patients and offer ways to maximise daily phytonutrient intake.Click for further information
