Optimal Defaults in the Prevention of Pediatric Obesity: From Platform to Practice
The term “optimal defaults” refers to imparting pre-selected choices which are designed to produce a desired behavior change. The concept is attractive to policymakers because it steers people toward desirable behaviors while preserving free choice through the ability to opt out. It has been found to be a powerful behavioral determinant in areas such as pension plan enrollment, organ donation, and green energy utilization.
Effect of Lactose Hydrolysis during Manufacture and Storage of Drinkable Yogurt
Reduced-lactose yogurts are still not available in the Argentinean market despite the fact in Latin America the incidence of deficient-lactose individual is very high. In this work, variables to hydrolyze the lactose (three levels of β-galactosidase enzyme and the time of its addition) were evaluated during manufacture of natural and sweetened (8% p/v) drinkable yogurts. Experimental yogurts (with enzyme) were compared with controls (without enzyme). The evolution of lactose content, pH, titratable acidity and syneresis were analyzed during 28 days of storage at 5ºC.
Green Tea Supplementation: Current Research, Literature Gaps, and Product Safety
This review broadly addresses the impacts of green tea (GT) and its extracts in a number of clinically-important areas, as listed below. It focuses on the available human research, and randomized, controlled trials, where possible. GT’s effects are not well established, due to the prevalence of conflicting data. It does appear that if GT is to have a positive effect on these outcomes, it likely needs to be in combination with caffeine.
Is there a Difference in Zinc and Vitamin A Status between Children with and without Goiter?
Iodide supplementation may be an important approach to improve iodine deficiency, however, it is still considered as a common health problem worldwide. The importance of trace elements in thyroid function has been revealed. The aim of this study was to compare the serum levels of Zinc and Vitamin A in children with and without goiter.
Rural-Urban Transfers and Household Food Security in Harare’s Crisis Context
This paper is based on research carried out in 2009 in the low-income residential area of Epworth in Harare, Zimbabwe. The paper assesses the contribution of rural-urban linkages to the food security of urban households in a crisis context. Research findings demonstrate that in conditions of extreme economic distress such as those that were besetting Zimbabwe at the time, the socio-cultural linkages that exist between the city and the village, as well as the economic relations of reciprocity embedded within these interactions are crucial to the survival of distressed urban households.
