  1. Longer Breast-Feeding May Protect Infants at Risk for ObesityRead the original story w/Photo

    Thursday Dec 4 | HON

    For babies at high risk for obesity, the longer they breast-feed, the less likely they may be to become overweight, a new study suggests. "Breast-feeding for longer durations appears to have a protective effect against the early signs of overweight and obesity," said lead researcher Stacy Carling, a doctoral candidate in nutrition at Cornell University, in Ithaca, N.Y. Carling and her colleagues followed 595 children from birth to the age of 2. They tracked the children's weight and length over this time, and compared individual children's growth trajectories to how long the children breast-fed.

Learning more about how the house fly's genes make it immune to certain illnesses might help lead to new vaccines or treatments for humans, said a team led by Jeff Scott of Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y. His team published the new genomic map of Musca domestica , the scientific name of the household pest, on Oct. 13 in the journal Genome Biology .

    The heavier that people who eat with you or near you are, the more food you are likely to eat and the less likely that food is to be healthy, said study researcher Brian Wansink, director of the Cornell University Food and Brand Lab, in Ithaca, N.Y. In the study, Wansink evaluated how much food people ate when they ate with an actress who wore a "fat suit" that made her 50 pounds heavier and when they ate with the same person without her fat suit. "What we found happened is that the people who were eating with a person who is notably overweight ended up eating about 32 percent more pasta and about 43 percent less salad," he said.
