The paired t-test was used to compare weight between baseline and final rat body weight in all groups, while the independent sample t-test was used to compare variations in weight between the Test and Control groups for low and high caloric
Co-author Sterling Johnson, a neuroscientist at the University of Wisconsin, said the caloric
reduction also improved brain health.
"Rather than focusing on differences between one caloric
sweetener and another, long-term studies comparing high fructose corn syrup-sweetened beverages with non-caloric beverages are more relevant to the issue of increased caloric
intake of sweeteners overall," said Rippe.
Because cutting down on calories slows metabolism, and free radicals are by-products of metabolism, caloric
restriction may reduce oxidative damage to cells.
Blank describes a uniform weight gain of a half-pound a week due to candy bars, and extrapolates that figure out to 26 pounds in 1 year, then 130 pounds in 5 years, he assumes the "person does no additional exercise to burn off those extra calories." On the contrary, weight gain results in increased caloric
expenditure from carrying around the extra weight and maintaining metabolism in the additional body tissue.
Key words: Sand flies, caloric
reserves, biological potential, bloodmeal, insect vectors.
That landmark project, supported by the National Institutes of Health, was one of the most in-depth efforts to measure the long-term impacts of caloric
restriction in humans.
Clarifying these concerns, Iman Ali Al Bastaki, director of Food Safety Department, told Gulf News that food establishments are free to choose the services of qualified professionals or compute the caloric
value of ingredients by using third-party software.
Chua said only one company had secured the required FDA approval to convert its sweetener from HFCS to caloric
and non-caloric sweeteners, while other companies that have not yet done so.
materials and compounds that can generate strong cooling effects when cyclically acted upon by magnetic, electric, or mechanical forces, can be incorporated into refrigeration systems that are dramatically more energy efficient than current vapor-compression models.
Under the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) Act, drinks using high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) must pay P12 a liter in excise tax, while those that have caloric
and noncaloric sweeteners pay a lower P6 a liter.
