Count nutrients not calories to stay healthy, suggests study August 28, 2015 20:53

According to a new study, the researchers found that only counting calories is not a way to reduce weight instead they recommend concentrating on the nutritional value of food. National food guide proposes men need around 2500 calories a day and women 2000 calories. Dr. Aseem Malhotra, one of the authors, and an NHS cardiologist and public health campaigner, said that not all calories are the same. He also criticized the UK's national food guide - the "eatwell plate" - as unhelpful for saying a can of cola could be part of a balanced diet. Malhotra further added that a can of cola a day, at 150 calories is linked with a significantly increased risk of type 2 diabetes but 4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil a day, at around 500 calories, has been shown to cut the risk of heart attacks and strokes.Experts believed that poor diet was responsible for more disease and death than physical inactivity, smoking and alcohol.  They further stated that it was time to stop counting calories and time to instead promote good nutrition and dietary changes which can rapidly and substantially reduce cardiovascular mortality.The study is published in the Journal Open Heart.By Lizitha

High protein foods could be good for women’s heart August 28, 2015 20:20

A new study found that intake of diet rich in amino acids could be good for women’s heart. The research was published in the Journal of Nutrition."The really surprising thing that we found is that amino acid intake has as much of an effect on blood pressure as established lifestyle risk factors such as salt intake, physical activity and alcohol consumption," says lead author Dr. Amy Jennings of the University of East Anglia (UEA).For the study, the researchers examined 1,898 women who were twins and who had a healthy body mass index (BMI). Dr. Jennings and her team observed the effect of seven amino acids on their cardiovascular health. The research team also compared participant’s diets to clinical measures of blood pressure and blood vessel health and found strong evidence that high amino acid intake is essential.From the study, the researchers noticed that plant-based protein sources were more strongly associated with lower blood pressure whereas meat was more strongly associated with reduced arterial stiffness. "We studied seven amino acids - arginine, cysteine, glutamic acid, glycine, histidine, leucine, and tyrosine," says Dr. Jennings. "Glutamic acid, leucine, and tyrosine are found in animal sources, and a higher intake was associated with lower levels of arterial stiffness."By Lizitha

Purple potatoes can prevent the spread of colon cancer August 28, 2015 19:23

A new study performed by the researchers from Pennsylvania State University has revealed that baked purple potatoes contain compounds that might destroy colon cancer stem cells and limit the spread of cancer. To prove this, the scientists tested the effect of whole baked purple potatoes on mice with colon cancer and found similar results. They stated that there might be several substances in purple potatoes including anthocyanins and chlorogenic acid, and resistant starch that help in killing the colon cancer cells. The lead researcher Vanamala said that the butyric acid regulated immune function in the gut, suppressed chronic inflammation and might also help to cause cancer cells to self-destruct. He also suggested that purple potatoes could be potentially used in both primary and secondary prevention strategies for cancer.The study is published in the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry.By Lizitha

As of now, RGV reacted on Akhil’s new movie ‘Akhil’ movie first look. The poster was released yesterday and secured a good buzz among the cinema biggies. Speaking about that, RGV said, “someone told me all the mega, Power, super, rebel, crazy stars have to look for alternative professions like farming, cooking etc. It clearly implies that ‘SOMEONE’ is none other than RGV himself. To prove the statement, RGV past comments on Baahubali can be taken as an example. He said that, after Baahubali, Pawan, Mahesh and rest other Tollywood star heroes will appear very tiny. However, he again applauded Mahesh, during Srimanthudu release and however, he will again shower praises on Pawan too, if Sardar Gabbar Singh movie teaser releases.   If RGV is understood well, we can get a good cinema lover in him.

Srimanthudu 100 crores not possible! August 28, 2015 16:32

As per the present statistics, it seems Srimanthudu movie might not cross Rs. 100 crores milestone.Already Baahubali crossed Rs.100 crores mark in Tollywood and set a new standard. Even Srimanthudu started on a high note and went well in the beginning, in fact, even now, the movie is running well in a number of theaters. The movie already crossed Pawan Kalyan’s Attharintiki Daredi Rs.75 crores mark and now stood at Rs.77 crores. This week, there are no big releases in Tollywood and so for one more week, there is no stop for Srimanthudu movie. So as per the trade analysts, the movie might cross Rs.80 crore mark in this week.Next week, Nani’s ‘Bhale Bhale Magadivoy’ movie is getting ready for release. Before the release itself, the movie got a huge craze among the public, for the trailer. After that, the long awaited Courier Boy Kalyan is also ready for release. As Tamil top director, Goutham Menon is backing up this project, even this got a good buzz. So after these releases, Srimanthudu might not sound in the public much. So at this point, reaching Rs.100 crores mark, seems almost impossible. However after adding the new scenes in Srimanthudu, the movie is expected to have a good pick up. By Phanindra

Naidu over, now Pawan will attack Modi? August 28, 2015 16:21

Pawan Kalyan reaction on special status might bring good days to the AP residents, opine the intellectuals.It is known that, Pawan reacted on land pooling issue of the farmers and warned AP government not to force the farmers for land pooling and also said to take the lands, only if the farmers are willing to give.Reacting on the land pooling issue on Friday, AP minister Narayana said, as per the suggestions of Pawan Kalyan, the state government has taken back its steps and will convince the unwilling farmers to offer their lands by means of land pooling. Adding further, Narayana said, “Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu is very much concerned about the land pooling and I personally made him to release the land pooling notification.” On the other hand, in the recently released smart cities list, again AP is given less priority by picking up the namesake 3 cities and the AP special status is rejected and moreover special package proposal of Naidu, is finding tough time to get centre’s approval. Pawan will react on AP special status? So at this stage, the intellectuals are opining that Pawan’s reaction against the centre for AP, might bring the good days for the state again. It is known that, Pawan Kalyan jointly supported TDP and Modi government and if such Pawan reacts against Modi, it would obviously create a new interest among the political circles.The reason behind this is, Naidu is not able to counter Pawan, for the reason he supported TDP during the elections and his craze helped the party to form the government in the state. The same formula in Modi situation too, as Pawan immensely supported and gave loud public speeches, which showed immense response all around. However as of now, Pawan again got busy in his film shooting and might not turn up to the politics, unless and until if any big incident takes place.     (Video Source: TV9)         By Phanindra

Exclusive: Friday - Dry day August 28, 2015 15:31

Previously, on every Friday, a complete festive mood prevails among the cinema audience because of the new releases. But these days, the audience are coming out of that mood slowly, as the number of movie releases is getting reduced day by day.Along with the less number of movies, even the success rate is getting down. Unless and until the movie is big, they are not able to come out. For instance, today there are more than half a dozen Telugu movie releases like Malini and co, Best actors, Dollar ki maro vaipu, Vikramarkudi love story and more.But none of them could not come into the public talks, as no media is interested to hype the movies, through which they get nothing. Of course, media might not be blamed completely, as no business is meant to do charity, every one works for money finally. So to save small cinema, the producers of the movies should at least control the budget on the movie and spend the maximum on the publicity, as it is that publicity which takes the movie move forward. It is to be remembered that in the past, great movies could not prove their existence, just because they did not have enough publicity.Believing in mouth talk publicity is gone in the present days, as the small movies are not even getting enough theaters. So other than spending on good publicity, there is no other option to save a small cinema. If given enough publicity, every eligible small cinema would be a hit and no Friday would be dry day again.By Phanindra
