A new University of Guelph study has found that parents, and especially fathers, play a vital role in developing healthy behaviours in young adults and helping to prevent obesity in their children. When it came to predicting whether a young male will become overweight or obese, the mother-son relationship mattered far less than the relationship between father and son.

Up to 30 percent of people who receive organ transplants will develop diabetes, but researchers are unsure why.

How Fat Becomes Lethal — Even Without Weight Gain

Livers.jpg

New research from Johns Hopkins now adds to evidence that other tissues can step in to make glucose when the liver’s ability is impaired, and that the breakdown of fats in the liver is essential to protect it from a lethal onslaught of fat. The new research findings, from studies in mice, are likely to help researchers better understand a growing class of often-deadly metabolic diseases, which affect how the body processes nutrients.

Pregnant Women's High-Fat, High-Sugar Diets May Affect Future Generations

A mouse study by researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis suggests that a pregnant woman's high-fat, high-sugar diet may have consequences for later generations. The study indicates that a woman's obesity can cause genetic abnormalities that are passed through the female bloodline to at least three subsequent generations, increasing the risk of obesity-related conditions.
