NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – A new study shows that soybean plants can be redesigned to increase crop yields while requiring less water and helping to offset greenhouse gas warming. The study is the first to demonstrate that a major food crop can be modified to meet multiple goals at the same time.

The study, led by Darren Drewry of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, CA, used an advanced vegetation model and high-performance computer optimization techniques.

Tennessee Department of Agriculture says State received plenty of Rain making Sorghum Crop a Sweet Success

 

The Tennessee Department of AgricultureNashville, TN – Sorghum is one of several crops in Tennessee that seems to have benefited from a rainy summer. Some highly anticipated fall crops, like pumpkins, have suffered in some parts of the state due to excess moisture and lack of sun. Others, like corn and sorghum, are on track for record harvests if current patterns of sunny, less-humid weather hold.

Sorghum syrup is a treasured traditional Tennessee food produced when the extracted juice from the sorghum plant is boiled down. Tennessee is one of the nation’s leading states in sorghum syrup production.

American Heart Association says Genetic “off switch” linked to increased risk factors for Heart Disease

 

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – Risk of heart and blood vessel disease may increase when a particular gene is switched off, according to preliminary research presented at the American Heart Association’s Emerging Science Series Webinar.

Two known biomarkers are high blood levels of certain fats – low-density lipoproteins (“bad” cholesterol) and high triglycerides. Another recognized biomarker is a protein called adiponectin, which is made in fat tissue and helps regulate the process of turning food into energy. At low levels it is associated with increased disease risk. «Read the rest of this article»

Enjoy Thanksgiving without raising risks of Diabetes

 

Tennessee Department of Health Shares Healthy Holiday Cooking, Eating Tips

Tennessee Department of HealthNashville, TN – If your Thanksgiving plans include lifting weights for 10 hours or going for a seven-hour run after dinner, enjoy your meal without worries. That’s how much activity it takes to burn the 4,000 calories many will consume as they work their way through turkey with all the trimmings.

But if you plan to linger around the table and take a nap or spend time on the sofa after eating, your future might hold glucose meters and insulin injections, both part of life for Tennessee’s growing number of individuals with diabetes. While blood sugar testing and shots may not seem too difficult to handle, blindness, kidney failure and loss of limbs are the serious consequences for some who develop diabetes. «Read the rest of this article»
