Factors associated with #eating performance in older adults with #dementia in long-term care facilities: a cross-sectional study

The purpose of this study was to investigate factors influencing eating performance in older adults with dementia (OAWDs) in long-term care (LTC) facilities. MethodsThis cross-sectional study examined risk factors for compromised eating performance by comparing both independent and dependent older adults with dementia.

Peroxidation of n-3 and n-6 polyunsaturated #fatty acids in the acidic #tumor environment leads to ferroptosis-mediated anticancer effects

Highlights•n-3 and n-6 PUFAs preferentially accumulate in lipid droplets of acidic cancer cells •Excess LC-PUFAs undergo peroxidation and induce ferroptosis in acidic cancer cells •DGAT inhibitors prevent the formation of lipid droplets and promote ferroptosis •DGATi enhance the tumor growth inhibitory effects of dietary n-3 LC-PUFAs in mice SummaryTumor acidosis promotes disease progression through a …
