How big firms got Brazil hooked on junk food 19.9.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
Children's squeals rang through the muggy morning air as a woman pushed a gleaming white cart along pitted, trash-strewn streets. She was making deliveries to some of the poorest households in this seaside city of Fortaleza, Brazil, bringing pudding, cookies and other packaged foods to customers on her sales route. Celene da Silva, 29, is one of thousands of door-to-door vendors for Nestlé, helping the world's largest packaged food conglomerate expand its reach into a quarter-million households in Brazil's farthest-flung corners. As she dropped off variety packs of Chandelle pudding, Kit-Kats and Mucilon infant cereal, there was something striking about her customers: Many were visibly overweight, even small children. She gestured to a home along her route and shook her head, recalling how its patriarch, a morbidly obese man, died the previous week. "He ate a piece of cake and died in his sleep," she said. Da Silva, who herself weighs more than 200 pounds, recently discovered that she had high ...

Wearable self-powered sensor monitors body glucose from sweat 19.9.2017 DNA: Opinion
Scientists have developed a self- powered paper-based wearable sensor that can allow diabetics to measure glucose levels from sweat during exercise. Today's most widespread methods for glucose self-testing involve monitoring glucose levels in blood. Conventional measurements, however, are not suitable for preventing hypoglycemia during exercise, said Seokheun Choi, Assistant Professor at Binghamton University, State University of New York in the US. The process of measuring blood glucose levels include pricking the skin to take blood samples. Doing this during exercise may cause the blood to get contaminated with excess sweat, or lead to skin irritation, Choi said. "The method needs patients to carry many accessories during physical activity, including lancets, alcohol swabs and a relatively large glucometer," she added. Researchers have developed and demonstrated a self- powered, wearable and disposable patch that allows for non- invasive monitoring of glucose in human sweat. This wearable, single-use ...
