INFLUENCE OF DIETARY FACTOR IN STUDENT PERFORMANCE

Introduction Nutrition during adolescence is of great importance in the quality of life and in school performance. In our society, eating habits are changing due to socio-cultural and family factors, new ideas about self-image and a global food culture. Data published in the National Health Survey (ENSANUT 2006), suggest that excess weight in adolescents between 12 and 19 years, has a national average of 31.9% in Mexico. One in 3 teens have excessive weight in our country. Several studies suggest that foods high in energy density and large portions of food, increase energy consumption and hence weight gain. Bottled soft drinks currently consumed, contribute to the epidemic of obesity and type II diabetes in Mexico. The intake of energy from these drink, represent 21% of the total energy consumption in Mexican adolescents. This, added to the energy from the diet, both contribute to these epidemics. Therefore, the adoption of patterns of consumption of healthy food and drinks for adolescents should be a priority for the population, since a well-balanced diet positively affects the physical and intellectual development of adolescents.

Metabolism: Starvation versus Stress

<p>Not feeding an injured or ill patient is not that same as a normal individual who is fasting.&nbsp;&nbsp; A pound of weight loss in the stress patient is significantly different than a pound of weight loss in someone on a diet.&nbsp;&nbsp;A basic understanding of stress metabolism is needed prior to a discussion of nutrition.&nbsp; </p>

Maternal preconception and gender selection

Maternal preconception and gender selection has long been a controversial topic. Are you more likely to conceive a boy if you eat red meat, and a girl if you make love under a full moon? Oldwives tales and fantasies exploring sexual position, diet, and dominance circulate the Internet however how can we logically distinguish between fact and fiction? The topic has widespread cultural implications. Sex-related abortions are on the increase in China and India where local customs and religious virtues appear to strongly correlate with the systematic elimination of girls. In an effort to challenge the dogma of chance fertilization two main research streams have explored variations in maternal condition and gender conception. The ‘Maternal Dominance’ hypothesis has suggested trait dominance, underpinned by serum testosterone, correlates with increased male conception rates. The second, ‘Maternal condition’ hypothesis relates to pre-conceptual maternal diet, investigating variations in both quantity and quality of diet and effects on sex ratios. However such assumptions have been difficult to replicate and more recent evidence has suggested changes in maternal condition may have a stronger influence Maternal adaptations in behavior appear to closely correlate with biased gender ratios and can have wider connotations on sex-linked disease inheritance. However unless we can identify molecular mechanisms influencing the intrauterine environment and follicular development, hypothesis will remain mere assumptions.

The (Peninsula) medical student's guide to healthy eating

I am a 4th year medical student, about to go into my final year and I created a healthy eating booklet directed at medical students as part of a Special Study Unit module. In the title of the booklet I included Peninsula medical school in the title to make it more appealing to the medical students in my university. However, all the information provided in the booklet is relevant to all medical students and even to non-medical students. Students are notoriously popular for having unhealthy diets during university life. Some of the reasons for this are the assumptions that healthy meals are more expensive to prepare, take longer to cook and require a greater deal of expertise than the average microwaveable meal Also the transition from living at home where meals are provided to having to fend for themselves especially for freshers can be one of the barriers to adopting a healthy lifestyle for students This booklet provides easy to follow tips on healthy eating and provides practical advice for cooking meals that are both healthy and cheap! The information is also presented in a style that's easy and interesting to read The booklet was created with the help of expert advice from a dietician at the Royal Devon and Exeter hospital, web based resources such as the NHS choices website and food leaflets from reputable organisations.
