New findings in health and wellness

Blueberries reduce abdominal fat, risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes

Ann Arbor, Michigan


Blueberries are already known as nature’s health food, and recent research points to even more benefits. A study
at the University of Michigan Cardiovascular Center showed that blueberries helped reduce abdominal fat and
reduced risk factors for cardiovascular disease and metabolic syndrome. (Metabolic syndrome is a group of risk
factors which together increase the risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes.)

The study involved three groups of laboratory rats: two groups had powdered blueberries added to either a low-
or high-fat diet and one group received a regular diet. After 90 days, rats that had received the powder had less
abdominal fat, lower triglycerides and cholesterol, and had improved fasting glucose and insulin sensitivity.

Those that were given a low-fat/blueberry powder diet exhibited even greater health benefits than those on the
high-fat/blueberry diet, including lower body weight, lower total fat mass and reduced liver mass.

Researchers believe the beneficial effects of blueberries are due to their high levels of antioxidants. Their findings
were presented at the Experimental Biology 2009 convention in New Orleans.

Anticipating a good laugh may reduce stress hormones

San Diego, California


Just looking forward to a good laugh can reduce three stress hormones, researchers from Loma Linda University
reported at the 2008 Annual Meeting of the American Physiological Society.

Earlier studies by the same researchers showed that anticipating laughter increased health-protective hormones:
beta-endorphins by 27 percent and human growth hormone by 87 percent.

In the current study, 16 males were divided into two groups: a control group and a group that was anticipating a
humorous event such as watching a comedy. Blood was taken from participants before the event, four times during
the event and three times after the event. Results showed a reduction in three stress hormones – cortisol, epinephrine
and dopac – for those in the anticipation group. Stress hormone levels progressively decreased through the event.

According to lead researcher, Dr. Lee Berk, “Our findings lead us to believe that by seeking out positive experiences
that make us laugh, we can do a lot with our physiology to stay well.”

Larger waist size linked to heart failure

Dallas, Texas
A larger waist in middle-aged adults is linked to heart failure, according to researchers in the April 2009 journal
Circulation: Heart Failure. Researchers examined data from two large studies, the Swedish Mammography Cohort
and the Cohort of Swedish Men; participants had been asked to report height, weight and waist circumference
and were followed for seven years.

Of the 36,873 women (aged 48-83), there were 382 incidents of heart failure during the study period; among the
43,487 men (aged 45-79), there were 718 incidents of heart failure.

Researchers discovered that in women, waist size was associated with heart failure regardless of BMI (body mass
index), whereas in men, both waist size and BMI were predictors of heart failure.
