Obesity can make breast cancer cells more aggressive


The team of scientists demonstrated that the described inhibition of ACC1 results in the accumulation of the fatty acid precursor acetyl-CoA. ... Marcos Rios Garcia, the first author of the study, said that the researchers used human tissue from breast cancer metastases, to show “that ACC1 was significantly less active there.” "...

American Chemistry Council funnels millions of dollars into political influence to soften chemical regulations


Approximately $1.8 million was spent by the ACC in 2014, funding more than 6,000 ads for that year's election cycle, reports The Hill. ... Roughly 70 percent of ACC's contributions to federal candidates went to Republicans during the 2012 election cycle. "...

Compound in lemon verbena may help normalize lipid metabolism in diabetics


Like ACC, inhibiting the activity of FAS also helps prevent lipid accumulation. ... Unlike the case with AMP, phosphorylation of ACC leads to its inactivation . In addition, ACT promoted lipolysis — the breakdown of triglycerides — and fatty acid oxidation by increasing the expression of adipose triglyceride lipase (ATGL), the enzyme that catalyzes the first step of lipolysis , and carnitine palmitoyltransferase (CPT)-1, the enzyme that activates fatty acid oxidation in ...

Obesity and breast cancer: Scientists explain how being overweight makes breast cancer cells more aggressive


Using human tissue from breast cancer metastases, the researchers found that the enzyme known as ACC1 (acetyl-CoA-carboxylase 1) — a key component of fatty acid synthesis — is inhibited by high levels of cytokines. ... The researchers discovered that when ACC1 is inhibited, it results to the accumulation of the fatty acid precursor acetyl-CoA, which is passed on to particular gene “switches” that in turn stimulate the metastatic capacity of cancer cells ...

Omega-3 fatty acids naturally protect cardiac tissue after a heart attack


In a press release announcing the study, the ACC noted that about 720,000 Americans have heart attacks each year, which often leave their heart condition compromised.(1) In the study, which involved assessing 374 patients who were recovering from a heart attack and receiving standard treatment, people were asked to take 4 grams of omega-3 fatty acids daily (the equivalent of eating 8 ounces of salmon) or a placebo. ... According to the World's Healthiest Foods website, these foods ...

Roses are red, violets are blue: Manchurian violets are good for your heart and liver, too


This, in turn, reduced acetyl-CoA carboxylase (ACC) in the liver tissue and inhibited sterol regulatory element-binding protein 1c (SREBP-1c). ... Inhibition of ACC can prevent hepatic steatosis that leads to fatty liver. Aside from preventing fat accumulation, treatment with Manchurian violet extracts also reduced the expression of adhesion molecules (intercellular adhesion molecule-1, vascular cell adhesion molecule-1, and E-selectin) as well ...

UK physiotherapy sells out to Big Pharma. Is chiropractic next?


Currently, the ACC contends that "Chiropractic is concerned with the preservation and restoration of health, and focuses particular attention on the subluxation. ...

Twitter now "fact checking" OBITUARIES of people killed by vaccines in effort to bury vaccine-induced deaths


The ACC explained that most cases of vaccine-induced VITT occur between 5-42 days following the injection. ... “They have not been reported to occur immediately (within 1-2 days) or longer-term (beyond 6 weeks) after vaccination,” the ACC further explained. "...

Is this why so many city dwellers have health issues? Air pollution found to radically increase stress hormones and alter metabolism


And something even more intriguing was happening in the pACC. … Again, those with rural childhoods showed the least active pACCs, those with urban ones the most. ... An erratic link between the pACC and the amygdalas is often seen in those with schizophrenia too. "...

Being obese can cause breast cancer cells to become more aggressive


As a result, the function of the lipogenic enzyme Acetyl-CoA-carboxylase 1 (ACC1) in fatty acid synthesis is impaired. When ACC1 is inhibited, the fatty acid precursor acetyl-CoA accumulates and turns on specific gene switches that activate gene programs involved in metastasis. "...

Overnight epidemic: New blood pressure guidelines affect more than 30 million Americans who suddenly have hypertension


But that’s not the case anymore, thanks to the newly announced changes made by the AHA and ACC. ... Taler explains it thusly: if a person has a blood pressure that’s over 130 and over 80, and they have a cardiovascular risk that’s considered elevated, then they would be recommended to undergo stage 1 level medication. "...

The one (life-saving) machine your gym must have


According to the ACC , sports-related sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) incidents are more prevalent than perceived. ... In North America and Europe, the incidence of SCAs ranges from 500 to 1,000 per million per year. "...

More states move to ban BPA even while FDA does nothing


Spokesmen from the American Chemistry Council (ACC) agreed with the FDA's decision, insisting that a ban on BPA is unnecessary. ... Those with a 1, 2, 4, 5, or 6 most likely do not. HHS also recommends not using plastic containers that are scratched since they are more likely to leech toxic chemicals. "...

Could Manchurian violets be used to treat atherosclerosis and hepatic steatosis?


This, in turn, reduced acetyl-CoA carboxylase (ACC) in liver tissue and inhibited sterol regulatory element-binding protein 1c (SREBP-1c). - V. mandshurica reduced the expression of adhesion molecules (intercellular adhesion molecule-1, vascular cell adhesion molecule-1, and E-selectin) as well as ACC, fatty acid synthase, and SREBP-1c. - Quantitative analysis of V. mandshurica using high-performance liquid chromatography revealed the ...

Chinese cinnamon prevents high-fat diet-induced obesity


. - The extract also reduced insulin resistance and glucose tolerance, inhibited expression for MyHC and PGC1? and the phosphorylation of AMPK. - Analysis of liver tissue revealed that Chinese cinnamon suppressed the accumulation of lipids and decreased the size of adipocytes. - Based on the in vitro test, Chinese cinnamon extracts increased ATP levels through upregulating mRNA expressions of mitochondrial biogenesis-related factors, such as PGC1-alpha, NRF-1, and Tfam, ...

Low intake of fresh fruits and vegetables linked to cardiovascular death: Following a balanced diet boosts heart health


In fact, the study estimated that 1 in 7 cases of cardiovascular deaths are caused by not eating enough fruit while 1 in 12 cardiovascular deaths are caused by not eating enough vegetables. ... For vegetables, lower intake was linked to about 1 million deaths — 800,000 from coronary artery disease and 200,000 from stroke. "...
