FFC COMMENT > A strict eating schedule could probably assist in weight control as well as lessening the ravaging effects of some diseases and disorders. The world is out of control with its eating habits of eating and drinking something all the time. Even in poor countries I see lots of fat people. I don’t think scientists and researchers are looking hard enough for the cause and effect of eating whenever, whatever, and however much we want.
The food and beverage industries are too large and powerful due to the backing of respective governments for the purpose of increasing its financial growth as nations. Since we all need to eat, the food and beverage industry is the most likely category to sustain the greatest amount of corruption through purposely designed misinformation regarding what, and how much is actually healthy, and when frequency and amount become liabilities for everyone, not just the majority
Most single diseases are not experienced by the majority of people. The model we’ve used in targeting only those diseases affecting the majority of people is actually hurting the majority of people, because we all have some type of disease or disorder, even if the individual disease and disorder doesn’t fit into the majority category. Add them all up and yes they do.
The pharmaceutical industry accepting the multi-diseased human as the norm, seeking to feed them pills to make profits, rather than lead them down a path of recovery and cure by promoting a change in cultural and social eating patterns doesn’t solve the problem, it exacerbates it. With drugs come side effects and more diseases and disorders, many of which now are known to not go away when the person stops taking the pills. That in itself should sound off a huge alarm among all people. Imagine a world where side effects don’t go away even when the medication is stopped. We are in that world right now and no one is doing a thing about it.
Governments are now afraid of the very industries they propped up, by opening every door, instead of closing some that needed closing on ethical grounds. Governments in essence gave up all their power, with a handshake and a wink, to these corrupt institutions and now ‘We The People’ are paying the price.
Strict eating schedule can lower Huntington disease protein in mice
March 6, 2018, University of British Columbia
New research from the University of British Columbia suggests that following a strict eating schedule can help clear away the protein responsible for Huntington disease in mice.Huntington disease (HD) is an inherited, progressive disorder that causes involuntary movements and psychiatric problems.
Symptoms appear in adulthood and worsen over time. Children born to a parent with HD have a one in two chance of inheriting the disease, which is caused by a buildup of mutant huntington protein (mHTT).
In research published today, scientists stimulated autophagy—a process in which the cell cleans out debris and recycles cellular material such as proteins—by restricting access to food in mice with HD to a six-hour window each day. This led to significantly lower levels of mHTT in the brain.
“We know that specific aspects of autophagy don’t work properly in patients with Huntington disease,” said study lead author Dagmar Ehrnhoefer, who conducted the study while she was a researcher with the UBC Centre for Molecular Medicine and Therapeutics.
“Our findings suggest that, at least in mice, when you fast, or eat at certain very regulated times without snacking in between meals, your body starts to increase an alternative, still functional, autophagy mechanism, which could help lower levels of the mutant huntington protein in the brain.”…
