#Waist Circumference Change is Associated with Blood #pressure Change Independent of BMI Change

This study aimed to understand how an increase in abdominal adiposity relative to overall adiposity is associated with blood pressure (BP) change.. ..Each 10‐cm annual WC gain in men and women was associated with a 0.98‐mm Hg (95% CI: 0.61‐1.35) and a 0.97‐mm Hg (95% CI: 0.62‐1.32) annual increase in systolic blood pressure and a 1.13‐mm Hg (95% CI: 0.87‐1.38) and a 0.74‐mm Hg (95% … Continue reading #Waist Circumference Change is Associated with Blood #pressure Change Independent of BMI Change

Extra virgin #olive oil improves synaptic activity, short‐term plasticity, #memory, and neuropathology in a tauopathy model

In recent years, increasing evidence has accumulated supporting the health benefits of extra virgin olive oil (EVOO). Previous studies showed that EVOO supplementation improves Alzheimer’s disease (AD)‐like amyloidotic phenotype of transgenic mice.. ..At the end of the treatment, compared with control mice receiving EVOO displayed improved memory and cognition which was associated with increased basal synaptic activity and short‐term plasticity. This effect was accompanied by … Continue reading Extra virgin #olive oil improves synaptic activity, short‐term plasticity, #memory, and neuropathology in a tauopathy model
