    The potential links between dietary patterns and components and cardiometabolic risk. The totality of the evidence suggests that added sugar and certain saturated‐fat‐containing foods increase risk for cardiometabolic disease by metabolic mechanisms that are not mediated solely by positive energy balance and fat gain. There is also evidence that certain dietary patterns or components can increase �energy in� and/or �energy storage as fat� via mechanisms that are not explained solely by their specific contribution of calories to the �energy in� side of the energy balance equation. The strength of the links is indicated by the green lines as follows. Solid green line: supported by evidence from animal studies and clinical observational and dietary intervention studies. Dashed line: evidence from prospective cohort studies and/or clinical dietary intervention studies suggests heightened risk during critical developmental periods and in persons with compromised glucose tolerance or insulin sensitivity. Dotted line: supported mainly by evidence from observational and/or animal studies only. Dotted line w/X: evidence from 100% of the clinical dietary intervention studies do not support the evidence from the observational and animal studies.

  • May xx, 2018 - Metabolic Syndrome

    Metabolic Syndrome
    Source: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/obr.12699

    Established paradigm by which positive energy balance promotes the development of the metabolic syndrome. Positive energy balance leads to fat accumulation and larger and more insulin‐resistant adipocytes (a). The insulin resistance increases lipolytic activity and circulating free fatty acids (FFA) (b). While lipolytic activity is higher in visceral adipose tissue than subcutaneous adipose, upper body subcutaneous adipose is a major contributor to the increased levels of FFA 328, 329. High levels of FFA can mediate muscle (c) 330 and liver (d) 331 insulin resistance. Hepatic uptake of FFA leads to increased liver lipid (e), which is associated with liver insulin resistance (f) 332 and promotes very‐low‐density lipoprotein (VLDL) production/secretion (g) and dyslipidaemia (h) 328, 333. Increased exposure to circulating triglyceride promotes intramyocellular lipid accumulation (i) 334, which is associated with insulin resistance (j) and type 2 diabetes 332. Inflammatory factors released by insulin‐resistant visceral adipose tissue (k) may also promote hepatic insulin resistance (l) and lipid accumulation (m) 119.

  • May xx, 2018 - Fructose

    Fructose and Obesity
    Source: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/obr.12699

    Potential mechanisms by which consumption of fructose promotes the development of metabolic syndrome The initial phosphorylation of dietary fructose in the liver is largely catalysed by fructokinase C (a), which is not regulated by hepatic energy status 122, 123. This results in unregulated fructose uptake and metabolism by the liver. The excess substrate leads to increased de novo lipogenesis (DNL) (b) 117, 127. DNL increases the intra‐hepatic lipid supply directly 127-129, via synthesis of fatty acids (c), and indirectly by inhibiting fatty acid oxidation (d) 120, 127. Increased intra‐hepatic lipid content promotes very‐low‐density lipoprotein (VLDL) production and secretion (e) 130. This leads to increased levels of circulating triglyceride (TG) and low‐density lipoprotein particles (dyslipidaemia) (f) 131, risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD) (g). Increased levels of hepatic lipid may also promote hepatic insulin resistance 132 by increasing levels of diacylglycerol, which may activate novel protein kinase C and lead to serine phosphorylation (serine P) of the insulin receptor and insulin receptor substrate 1 and impaired insulin action (h) 335. Because of selective insulin resistance, DNL is even more strongly activated in the insulin resistant liver (i) 336, which has the potential to generate a vicious cycle (circular arrows) that would be perpetuated by sustained fructose consumption. This cycle would be expected to further exacerbate VLDL production and secretion via increased intra‐hepatic lipid supply 130. Hepatic insulin resistance also promotes VLDL production/secretion (j) by increasing apolipoprotein B availability 337, 338 and apolipoprotein CIII synthesis 339 and by up‐regulating microsomal TG transfer protein expression (MTP) 336. This exacerbates and sustains exposure to circulating TG, leading to intramyocellular lipid accumulation (k) 334, impaired insulin signalling and whole‐body insulin resistance (l) 332. The fructokinase‐catalysed phosphorylation of fructose to fructose‐1‐phosphate, which results in conversion of adenosine triphosphate to adenosine monophosphate and a depletion of inorganic phosphate, leads to uric acid production via the purine degradation pathway (m) 121, 123-125. High levels of uric acid are associated and may contribute to increased risk for development of fatty liver (n) and CVD (o) 340-342. Fructose exposure in the intestine (p) 134, 135 and liver (q) 136 and fructose‐induced increases of visceral adipose (r) may promote inflammatory responses 117, 343 that further promote liver lipid accumulation (s) and/or impair hepatic insulin signalling (t) 119.

    Content is king
    Graphic source:http://www.marketingcharts.com/online/relevant-content-considered-most-effective-seo-tactic-72413/attachment/ascend2-most-effective-difficult-seo-tactics-nov2016/

    • Search rankings studies have indicated that the impact of relevant content continues to grow, and a new survey [download page] from Ascend2 and its Research Partners finds that marketers largely agree. Some 57% of the 256 marketing influencers surveyed around the world rated relevant content creation as being among their most effective SEO tactics, topping the proportion feeling that way about keyword/phrase research (49%).
    • These top-2 tactics in effectiveness are unchanged from last year�s survey, though the gap between them has narrowed somewhat.
    • As with last year�s iteration of the survey, relevant content creation continues to be perceived as the most difficult SEO tactic, followed by external and internal linking. The easiest tactic to execute is meta description/tags, though this is seen as being among the most effective methods by few respondents to the survey.
    • On an encouraging note, marketers seem to have confidence in the effectiveness of their SEO strategies. Roughly 8 in 10 describe themselves as either very successful (34%) or somewhat successful (47%), and a similar proportion say that effectiveness is either increasing significantly (42%) or marginally (40%).
    • Perhaps they feel good about their content creation skills?
    • About the Data: The Ascend2 data is based on a survey of 256 marketing influencers around the world, three-quarters of whom come from companies with at least 50 employees and 64% of whom are primarily B2B (45%) or B2B and B2C equally (19%).

  • More than 3 in 4 American adults engage in social media in some way, finds a report from The Harris Poll. The study indicates that of those engaged in social media, passive reacting or posts and content is the most common form of engagement, with far fewer mostly creating and posting original content. Still, users typically post about some areas more than others. Most commonly, adults post about their families, with about 1 in 3 saying they typically do so. Next up is humorous content such as memes, quizzes, lists and videos, with 3 in 10 typically posting such content. That fits with previous research indicating that humor is a key motivator of social sharing behavior. Meanwhile, adults are about as likely to post about pets (17%) as they are about kids, travel and food (each at 18%). Even in the run-up to the election, few (11%) profess to typically posting about politics, though. Unsurprisingly, these responses differ markedly by age and other demographic variables, as highlighted below: For youth (18-34), humorous content is most commonly shared (by 43%); The 35-44 bracket shares content about family the most, while also being more likely than other age groups to share about kids; Affluent Americans post about travel (26%) more commonly than other income groups; and Parents with kids under 18 in the household are more engaged with social media than those without kids in the household, and are equally or more likely to post about all the topics measured. Also as expected, the 18-34 age group is the most engaged with social media, as almost 9 in 10 engage in some way. This age group is also the most likely to be exposed to multiple ads on social media and to count those ads as an influence on their purchases, per MarketingCharts study data. Finally, a separate survey of Facebook users from Fractl indicates that men and women are equally likely to share funny videos or articles and news content. Results from the survey indicate that Millennials are the least likely to share political content and the most likely to share memes, with the opposite patterns true for Boomers. As for the buzz-worthy employee advocacy trend? Just 7% of respondents to the Harris Poll say they typically post about work, with this most common among 35-44-year-old females (15%). http://www.marketingcharts.com/online/heres-what-americans-say-they-most-commonly-post-about-on-social-media-69388/?utm_campaign=newsletter&utm_source=mc&utm_medium=thumbnail
