Sleep Less, Eat More? Plus, 5 More Trends Affecting Your Health

I believe one of the biggest reasons we face so many different health problems in this country is because there is a massive lack of awareness and education.

That’s why I’d like to introduce Uncommon Wisdom Daily’s inaugural health research roundup. Today we’ll look at some of the most important and groundbreaking medical, health and fitness research from around the world.

This is my way of helping you keep up on recent exploration and the most impactful stories around. And in the coming weeks, we’ll look to delve deeper into some of these topics and other natural ways to boost your health.

I’ve provided some excerpts below. Click on the links to learn more. Enjoy!

Gut bacteria spotted eating brain chemicals for the first time

"WE HAVE all experienced the influence of gut bacteria on our emotions. Just think how you felt the last time you had a stomach bug. Now it is becoming clear that certain gut bacteria can positively influence our mood and behavior.

"The way they achieve this is gradually being uncovered, raising the possibility of unlocking new ways to treat neurobehavioral disorders such as depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)."

12-week exercise program significantly improved testosterone levels in overweight, obese men

"Twelve weeks of aerobic exercise significantly boosted testosterone levels in overweight and obese men, with the greatest increases seen among vigorous exercisers, according to research presented at the Integrative Biology of Exercise 7 meeting in Phoenix."

Common food additive promotes colon cancer in mice

"Emulsifiers, which are added to most processed foods to aid texture and extend shelf life, can alter intestinal bacteria in a manner that promotes intestinal inflammation and colorectal cancer, according to a new study done by Georgia State University."

Smoking a pack of cigarettes daily for a year causes 150 mutations in lung cells

"Scientists have measured the catastrophic genetic damage caused by smoking in different organs of the body and identified several different mechanisms by which tobacco smoking causes mutations in DNA.

"Researchers at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, the Los Alamos National Laboratory and their collaborators found smokers accumulated an average of 150 extra mutations in every lung cell for each year of smoking one packet of cigarettes a day."

Sleep deprivation may cause people to eat more calories

"Sleep deprivation may result in people consuming more calories during the following day, according to a systematic review and meta-analysis led by researchers at King’s College London.

"The metaanalysis combined the results of many previous small intervention studies to produce a more robust answer and found that sleep-deprived people consumed an average of 385 kcal per day extra, which is equivalent to the calories of about four and a half slices of bread."

Additional benefit of omega-3 fatty acids for the clearance of metabolites from the brain

"New research published online in The FASEB Journal suggests that omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are found in fish oil, could improve the function of the glymphatic system, which facilitates the clearance of waste from the brain, and promote the clearance of metabolites including amyloid-β peptides, a primary culprit in Alzheimer’s disease and a suspecting culprit of Parkinson’s disease."

Your thoughts on “Sleep Less, Eat More? Plus, 5 More Trends Affecting Your Health”

  1. The loss of sleep article was very interesting and I learned several things. Keep up the good work.

  2. Brad, I like you work on nutrition & health issues! I’ve discovered many Cancer Cures at CancerTutor,com and have adopted the Budwig [nutrition] protocol to regain my health after CML Leukemia diagnosis 5 yrs ago and questionable chemo treatment since. The last 2 yrs on the Budwig protocol has changed me from walking skeleton into a living old man. These many protocols combat many chronic illnesses as well as cancer. They are quite valuable for ‘healthy’ people to avoid getting a weak immune system. Ty Bollinger’s work at The Truth About Cancer is awesome for all Cancer patients. …DJ in TX

  3. I like your medical emails. It is difficult to get unbiased advice these days. Keep it going!

    My interest is H.I.I.T. High Intensity Training for senior citizens. Should we be doing it, how much is recommended and is it beneficial.

  4. Detailed reporting of natural blood pressure reduction research would be appreciated. Also, commentary on the real significance of bp numbers alone vs overall factors, ie resting heart rate, blood levels of specific nutrients and relevant indicators of health of the circulatory system. Basically, how much of the medical establishment’s hype on narrow range of acceptable/safe bp numbers is just that – hype, intended to lock people into a pharmaceutical dependence merry-go-round?

  5. I would like to see more articles about disease prevention (especially cancer and Alzheimers disease). Also, I would like more information about what containers are safe to eat and drink from (i.e. plastic and tetra paks etc).

  6. As the wife of a 78 yr old advanced ALZ patient I must tell you the only fish he ever ate beside canned tuna was shell fish. He never took a vitamin or even a supplement in his life but the memory issues surfaced at age 62 and he was age 69 before he was diagnosed with ALZ. If I could turn back the clock…..
