Research of the Week

A race day high-fat meal resulted in better endurance performance than a race day high-carb meal following three days of carbohydrate loading.

Choline intake during pregnancy predicts the child’s epigenetic response to stress once born. Kids from moms who ate just 480 mg of choline a day during pregnancy (the recommended amount) secreted more cortisol in response to stress than kids from moms who ate 930 mg per day. All the more reason to eat your yolks!

Speaking of stress, it seems to shut off the parts of the brain that control goal-oriented behavior. So that kid with the excessive cortisol gene expression might be less likely to accomplish interesting, exciting things.

Caffeine appears to be helpful against Parkinson’s disease.
