Low-Fiber Diet Caused High Blood Pressure In Trial On Mice

These findings solidify evidence that this dietary correlation could also be a causation of cardiovascular problems for many.


An international study led by scientists at Monash University in Australia yielded evidence confirming that low fiber diets may lead to high blood pressure, a disease afflicting extremely sizeable portions of the global population.
If left untreated, high blood pressure can lead to stroke, myocardial infarction, a stiffening of the arteries and the muscles of the heart, and a stiffening of the kidneys, reducing their function. It’s the most common risk factor for cardiovascular disease.
The study, which was published last week in Circulation, used mice to test the difference between high- and low-resistant starch diets.
Resistant starches are a type of prebiotic fiber, which resists digestion until it reaches the large intestine, where it feeds bacteria that are considered to have health benefits.
The results found that mice fed a

Deleting immune cell genes prevents obesity in mice on high-fat diet

Being able to eat whatever we want and still stay slim is many people’s dream come true. And while it still remains firmly in fantasy territory for now, new research may have brought it a step closer to reality. By blocking a gene in certain immune cells, scientists have prevented mice from becoming obese, even on a high-fat diet.

The immune cells at the center of the study are known as macrophages. These cells are responsible for inflammation responses, which are crucial for destroying pathogens. Chronic low-grade inflammation is also known to occur in people with obesity.

For the new study, researchers from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis investigated whether reducing that inflammation could help cut down on weight gain. To do so, the team blocked a gene called ASXL2 in the macrophages.

In one group of mice, the researchers deleted the ASXL2 gene from the animals’

What Is the Keto Diet?

Keto diet is short for “ketogenic diet.” This diet is a high-fat, low-carb, moderate-protein diet that makes your body use fat as its main energy source instead of carbs.

When you eat carbs, such as rice, bread, and pasta, your body turns them into glucose to use for energy.

When you drastically reduce your carbs and increase your fat intake, your body has no choice but to start producing ketones and eventually enter a state of ketosis.

During this state, your

    International No Diet Day 2020: The Dos And Don’ts Of Dieting


    International No Diet Day

    The first International No Diet Day was celebrated in the UK in 1992 and was brought to light by Mary Evans – a feminist and the director of the British group ‘Diet Breakers.’ The symbol for INDD is a light blue ribbon [1].

    The goals of INDD is to “question the idea of one ‘right’ body shape, raise awareness of weight discrimination, size bias and fatphobia, declare a day free from diets and obsessions about body weight, present the facts about the diet industry, emphasizing the inefficacy of commercial diets, honour the victims of eating disorders and weight-loss surgery and help end weight discrimination, sizism and fatphobia” [2].

    INDD has faced criticisms for its approach, where health experts assert that although the day is celebrated with the right intentions, it ignores the importance of staying fit and healthy. The Institute of Medicine’s Committee To Develop Criteria

    Diet myths debunked: No, eggs will not necessarily increase your cholesterol

    When it comes to what we eat, social media has thousands of posts that want to steer your judgement. One positive diet post, in a nanosecond, can convince someone to cut out gluten or dairy or meat or even an entire food group. Is the advice on your smartphone valid? Just because it’s a smartphone doesn’t mean it has all the answers! 

    As a registered dietitian nutritionist, I’ve heard diet myth after diet myth from my patients, often from articles or posts they find online. I appreciate that they bring this information to me because I’m able to separate fact from fiction for them. My best recommendation is that you do the same. An RDN can be your personal link for accurate, up-to-date, evidence-based nutritional information.
