NUS Researchers Upcycle Pineapple Leaves Into Low-Cost Fat Trappers
National University of Singapore

A team of researchers from the National University of Singapore has created low-cost fat-trapping capsules and crackers using pineapple leaf fibres. These capsules or crackers can absorb fatty compounds (such as animal fats) in the body, and the fat-coated lumps will then be passed out from the digestive system. This novel approach to upcycle agricultural waste can be used for other types of cellulose fibres, such as sugarcane bagasse and coffee grounds.

Study: Losing Excess Weight in Adulthood Reduces Risk of Developing Polyps That Can Lead to Colorectal Cancer

Weight loss for adults, particularly those who are overweight or obese, may reduce their risk of developing a type of polyp that can lead to colorectal cancer, according to a new study led by researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. Findings were published today in the journal JNCI Cancer Spectrum. Losing weight from early to late adulthood (up to the mid-70s) – at least two pounds per decade – reduced an individual’s risk for developing precancerous growths, or adenomas, by 46 percent, the investigators reported. Study findings particularly support a benefit of weight loss for adults who are overweight or obese.
