(Press-News.org) Complimentary press passes are now available for NUTRITION 2024, the annual flagship meeting of the American Society for Nutrition. Join us June 29–July 2 in Chicago for the latest developments in nutrition research, practice and policy.

 

As the pre-eminent meeting in nutrition science, NUTRITION attracts thousands of scientists, practitioners, policymakers, advocacy leaders and industry professionals each year. Reporters are invited to attend in person to connect with the field’s leaders and learn about exciting scientific findings, impactful policy developments and emerging technologies.

 

This year’s meeting will explore cutting-edge advances aimed at answering some of today’s most pressing questions in nutrition and public health, such as: How does what we eat affect how we age? How do our genes and environment influence our nutritional needs and preferences? And, what strategies actually work for preventing chronic disease?

 

To apply for a press pass to attend NUTRITION 2024 in Chicago, check our Media Policies and submit a Press Registration Form.

 

Qualifying journalists will receive:

A press badge granting entry to all in-person meeting sessions in Chicago Access to recorded content from selected sessions on demand after the event  Early access to embargoed materials featuring high-impact research Personal introductions for one-on-one interviews with featured scientists

UMass Amherst-led team creates biofilm-resistant glass for marine environments
2024-04-02
AMHERST, Mass. – A group of researchers led by University of Massachusetts Amherst engineers have created ultraviolet (UV) rays-emitting glass that can reduce 98% of biofilm from growing on surfaces in underwater environments, as reported in the journal Biofilm.    Biofilm is a slimy layer of various types of microorganisms that grows on wet surfaces. “If you look down your sink and touch the inner side of it—that slimy substance is biofilm,” describes Mariana Lanzarini-Lopes, ...

Heart health declines rapidly after menopause

2024-04-02
A woman’s cardiovascular risk can rise sharply after she goes through menopause, quickly catching up to men of a similar age and health profile, according to new findings presented at the American College of Cardiology’s Annual Scientific Session. Researchers said the study underscores the importance of recognizing and addressing early warning signs of heart disease risk in women as they lose the protective effects of estrogen after menopause. “This is a unique study cohort of only post-menopausal ...

Majority of people with heart disease consume too much sodium

2024-04-02
Individuals with heart disease stand to gain the most from a low-sodium diet but, on average, consume over twice the recommended daily sodium intake, according to a study being presented at the American College of Cardiology’s Annual Scientific Session. Sodium is an essential nutrient, but consuming too much can raise blood pressure, which damages blood vessels and forces the heart to work harder. Excess sodium can also cause the body to retain fluid, exacerbating conditions like heart failure. The current U.S. Dietary Guidelines put out by the U.S. Department of Agriculture ...

Study links e-cigarette use with higher risk of heart failure

2024-04-02
People who use e-cigarettes are significantly more likely to develop heart failure compared with those who have never used them, according to one of the largest prospective studies to date investigating possible links between vaping and heart failure. The findings are being presented at the American College of Cardiology’s Annual Scientific Session. Heart failure is a condition affecting more than 6 million U.S. adults in which the heart becomes too stiff or too weak to pump blood as effectively as it should. It can often lead to debilitating symptoms and frequent hospitalizations as people age. Electronic nicotine products, which include ...

Mapping heart health: AI illuminates neighborhood impact on well-being

2024-04-02
Is the view from your doorstep mostly trees and sky or buildings and grass? The answer could influence your cardiovascular health, according to a study presented at the American College of Cardiology’s Annual Scientific Session. Using an analysis of Google Street View images powered by machine learning, researchers found people living in surroundings rich in sidewalks, trees and clear sky saw a significantly lower risk of major adverse cardiac events. “A lot of research has shown that environmental factors strongly affect our health. If we can find a way to stratify this risk and provide interventions before cardiovascular events happen, then ...

Researchers discover dual topological phases in an intrinsic monolayer crystal

Researchers discover dual topological phases in an intrinsic monolayer crystal
2024-04-02
Chestnut Hill, Mass (4/2/2024) – Dual topological phases have been discovered in an intrinsic monolayer crystal, a finding that reveals new and unique rule-bending properties in a quantum material, an international team of scientists led by Boston College physicists reported recently in the online version of the journal Nature. The discovery of a dual topological insulator introduces a new method for creating topological flat minibands through electron interactions, which offer a promising platform for exploring exotic quantum phases and electromagnetism, ...

PLOS and Eurodoc partner to advance Open Science principles

Brussels, Belgium, and San Francisco, United States - The Public Library of Science (PLOS) and the European Council of Doctoral Candidates and Junior Researchers (“Eurodoc”), today announced a strategic partnership between the organizations to increase awareness of Open Science, its principles, and its implementation into research practices. “In addition to supporting researchers, we also strive to support the implementation of Open Science principles and increase the adoption of ...

Intergenerational altruism and climate policy support

Intergenerational altruism and climate policy support
2024-04-02
Investments in mitigating climate change in many cases benefit future generations more than those alive today. However, initial costs must be borne by those living now, so many climate mitigation policies rely on some level of intergenerational altruism for support. To investigate the strength and shape of intergenerational altruism, Gustav Agneman and colleagues asked Swedish study participants to engage in an experimental task in which they allocated fictional resources across generations, after being told how many descendants they might be expected to have in the next 250 years.  On average, participants allocated most of the resources to the present generation, and fewer and ...

Investigating the surface extraction of platinum catalysts in alkaline media

Investigating the surface extraction of platinum catalysts in alkaline media
2024-04-02
The pursuit of carbon neutrality drives the exploration of clean energy sources, with hydrogen fuel cells emerging as a promising avenue. In these cells, hydrogen undergoes an electrochemical reaction with oxygen to produce electricity and water. Also, the reverse of this process, called electrolysis, can be used to split the abundantly available water to produce hydrogen and oxygen. These two technologies can work in tandem to provide a clean and renewable source of energy. A pivotal element in these two technologies is the platinum (Pt) electrode. Hydrogen fuel cells consist of two electrodes: an anode and a cathode, with an ...

AI’s ability to detect tumor cells could be key to more accurate bone cancer prognoses

AI’s ability to detect tumor cells could be key to more accurate bone cancer prognoses
2024-04-02
Fukuoka, Japan - Researchers at Kyushu University have developed and validated a machine-learning model that can accurately evaluate the density of surviving tumor cells after treatment in pathological images of osteosarcoma—the most prevalent malignant bone tumor. The model can assess how individual tumor cells respond to treatment and can predict overall patient prognosis more reliably than conventional methods. Surgery and chemotherapy have significantly improved the outcomes of patients with localized osteosarcoma. However, patients with advanced metastatic disease (the stage where cancerous cells have spread to distant tissues) have a low survival rate. ...
