  • Sugar substance 'kills' good HDL cholesterol, new study finds

    09/03/2014 12:09:14 PM PDT · by Red Badger · 20 replies ^ | 01 SEP 2014 | Provided by University of Warwick (UK)
    Scientists at the University of Warwick have discovered that 'good' cholesterol is turned 'bad' by a sugar-derived substance. The substance, methylglyoxal - MG, was found to damage 'good' HDL cholesterol, which removes excess levels of bad cholesterol from the body. Low levels of HDL, High Density Lipoprotein, are closely linked to heart disease, with increased levels of MG being common in the elderly and those with diabetes or kidney problems. Supported by funding from the British Heart Foundation (BHF) and published in Nutrition and Diabetes, the researchers discovered that MG destabilises HDL and causes it to lose the properties which...

    Of all the minerals, magnesium has always been close to my heart – in more ways than one. Magnesium is truly a wonder mineral While people might be aware of the power of this mineral, there is now scientific evidence that takes magnesium to a new level. A study was conducted on more than 3700 women who were post menopausal. The results were astounding in that it was revealed that magnesium has incredible anti-inflammatory properties. This is great news for people like you and I who are health-conscious and do not wish to depend upon harmful medications to reveal inflammatory-related...

    Mice given extra doses of a new magnesium compound had better working memory, long-term memory and greater learning ability. Before you go popping heavy doses of magnesium, however, know that much more testing is needed. Though rodent brains work similarly to ours, animal studies do not always predict what will happen in humans. "If MgT is shown to be safe and effective in humans, these results may have a significant impact on public health," said Guosong Liu, director of the Center for Learning and Memory at Tsinghua University in Beijing, China. Magnesium is an essential element found in some fruits,...

    The more appropriate question would be "What isn't made in China?" In the field of auto repair, we are seeing a slow but deliberate increase in the number of aftermarket parts that are stamped "Made in China". While the amount of parts that are made in China is disturbing, what is even more disturbing is the fact that these components are of very high quality. They easily compare to anything made not just in the US, but anywhere else for that matter. But there is one sector of the economy that up until now has escaped the onslaught of the...

    DETROIT, July 11 — Can the mystique of a British sports car be recreated by a Chinese company in America’s heartland? That’s the bet by Nanjing Automobile Group, which plans to resurrect the fabled MG marque in a tricontinental demonstration of how truly global the automotive industry has become. Nanjing, which purchased the assets of the bankrupt MG Rover Group last year, aims to be the first Chinese carmaker to open a factory in the United States. The company has scheduled a news conference for Wednesday in Oklahoma to announce plans to build a newly designed MG TF Coupe there,...

    A ban on assault rifles, pushed by the mayor of Chicago and our governor, is moldering in the state House Rules Committee. Lawmakers can take no action until they reconvene in October. And even then, there's little chance supporters can pick up the three additional votes they need to send the bill to the Senate. But like the villain at the end of a movie, the assault rifle ban never dies. It's just wounded, waiting to come back when you're not looking. So I thought I would look into the validity of its major argument. That is, this notion that...

It said state regulators are resisting British pressure to fast track approval, angered by Rover's decision to reveal it was in negotiations with SAIC, China's largest state-run automaker. For the deal to proceed, SAIC needs approval from the Shanghai city government, its owner, and from the National Development and Reform Commission, which is responsible for foreign investments by state-owned companies. However, Rover's decision to reveal it was in talks...
