HEAVY METAL LEAD
Elevated bone lead levels associated with 42% greater risk of cardiovascular death
The one-third of males with the highest lead levels as measured in the kneecap (bone lead levels as opposed to blood lead levels) compared to the one-third with the lowest lead levels were 42% more likely to die from cardiovascular death during an average follow-up of 8.9 years according to the Veterans Affairs Normative Aging Study.Read the entire article | Email this article
HEAVY METAL LEAD
Elevated bone lead levels associated with 87% greater risk of death from heart disease
The one-third of males with the highest lead levels as measured in the kneecap (bone lead levels as opposed to blood lead levels) compared to the one-third with the lowest lead levels were 87% more likely to die from ischemic heart disease (reduced blood supply to the heart) during an average follow-up of 8.9 years according to the Veterans Affairs Normative Aging Study.Read the entire article | Email this article

Resting metabolism falls by 25 calories per day for every 2.2 lbs lost from liposuction
This may be because body fat releases leptin, a hormone which decreases appetite and increases metabolism, therefore, by removing fat cells, liposuction may decrease leptin levels, and thus, decrease resting metabolism.
Studies have shown that giving leptin injections "reverse the effects of weight loss on resting [metabolism]," the paper notes.
This was much greater than the decrease of 15 calories per day seen with weight loss from a low-calorie diet, and the 11 calorie decrease seen with weight loss surgery. Read the entire article | Email this article

Fructose causes obesity by causing leptin resistance says Robert Lustig, MD
"Our environment is insulinogenic. We have to get the insulin down," Lustig notes in a slide show. Read the entire article | Email this article

Fructose causes leptin resistance and more weight gain when fed a high-fat diet
During the first six months, there was no difference in weight or food intake between the two groups.
Leptin resistance was demonstrated by the fact that food intake was reduced in in rats on a fructose-free diet when they were giving a leptin injection, but this was not the case in rats on the high-fructose diet.
Leptin is a hormone produced by fat cells that reduce appetite and, in some animals, increases metabolism. Read the entire article | Email this article

Leptin deficiency alters sleep in mice, lowers metabolism during sleep
Leptin-deficient mice (ob/ob mice) had more arousals during sleep, and more frequent, but shorter-lasting sleep bouts, and also showed lower body temperature, in other words, lower metabolism during sleep.
They also did not recover as well from sleep deprivation when they were allowed to sleep. Read the entire article | Email this article
