Losing Control: #Sleep Deprivation Impairs the Suppression of Unwanted #Thoughts

Unwanted memories often enter conscious awareness when individuals confront reminders. People vary widely in their talents at suppressing such memory intrusions; however, the factors that govern suppression ability are poorly understood. We tested the hypothesis that successful memory control requires sleep. Following overnight sleep or total sleep deprivation, participants attempted to suppress intrusions of emotionally negative and neutral scenes when confronted with reminders. The sleep-deprived … Continue reading Losing Control: #Sleep Deprivation Impairs the Suppression of Unwanted #Thoughts

Association between Neu5Gc carbohydrate and serum antibodies against it provides the molecular link to #cancer: French NutriNet-Santé study

High consumption of red and processed meat is commonly associated with increased cancer risk, particularly colorectal cancer. Antibodies against the red meat-derived carbohydrate N-glycolylneuraminic acid (Neu5Gc) exacerbate cancer in “human-like” mice. Human anti-Neu5Gc IgG and red meat are both independently proposed to increase cancer risk, yet how diet affects these antibodies is largely unknown.. ..We found that high-Neu5Gc diet, gender, and age affect the specificity, … Continue reading Association between Neu5Gc carbohydrate and serum antibodies against it provides the molecular link to #cancer: French NutriNet-Santé study
