Adjusting plasma ferritin concentrations to remove the effects of subclinical inflammation in the assessment of iron deficiency: a meta-analysis.
BACKGROUND The World Health Organization recommends serum ferritin concentrations as the best indicator of iron deficiency (ID). Unfortunately, ferritin increases with infections; hence, theExpand
The effect of cruciferous and leguminous sprouts on genotoxicity, in vitro and in vivo.
Vegetable consumption is associated with a reduced risk of colorectal cancer, which is the second most common cancer after lung/breast cancer within Europe. Some putative protective phytochemicalsExpand
Watercress supplementation in diet reduces lymphocyte DNA damage and alters blood antioxidant status in healthy adults.
BACKGROUND Cruciferous vegetable (CV) consumption is associated with a reduced risk of several cancers in epidemiologic studies. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to determine the effects ofExpand
Hydroxylated phenylacetamides derived from bioactive benzoxazinoids are bioavailable in humans after habitual consumption of whole grain sourdough rye bread.
SCOPE Understanding relationships between dietary whole grain and health is hindered by incomplete knowledge of potentially bioactive metabolites derived from these foods. We aimed to discoverExpand
Vinegar as a functional ingredient to improve postprandial glycemic control-human intervention findings and molecular mechanisms.
Type 2 diabetes prevalence worldwide is increasing and the burden is particularly high in Asian countries. Identification of functional food ingredients to curb the rise of diabetes among variousExpand
Data-driven strategy for the discovery of potential urinary biomarkers of habitual dietary exposure.
BACKGROUND An understanding of causal relations between diet and health is hindered by the lack of robust biological markers of food exposure. OBJECTIVE We aimed to develop a data-driven procedureExpand
Body Composition in Asians and Caucasians: Comparative Analyses and Influences on Cardiometabolic Outcomes.
Within the last four decades Asia has witnessed major transformation in its population demographics, which gave rise to changes in food availability, food habits and lifestyle. A significantExpand
Polyphenol-rich curry made with mixed spices and vegetables increases postprandial plasma GLP-1 concentration in a dose-dependent manner
Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) plays an important role in glucose homeostasis. Evidence is emerging that dietary bioactive phytochemicals such as polyphenols can increase GLP-1 concentration inExpand
Postprandial changes in cardiometabolic disease risk in young Chinese men following isocaloric high or low protein diets, stratified by either high or low meal frequency - a randomized controlled
BackgroundCardio-Metabolic Disease (CMD) is the leading cause of death globally and particularly in Asia. Postprandial elevation of glycaemia, insulinaemia, triglyceridaemia are associated with anExpand
High or low glycemic index (GI) meals at dinner results in greater postprandial glycemia compared with breakfast: a randomized controlled trial
Introduction While circadian control of glucose metabolism is well known, how glycemic index (GI) of carbohydrate-rich meals interacts with time of consumption (breakfast or dinner) to influenceExpand
