ABSTRACT
The article offers news brief related to diabetes. A study conducted by Dr. Isao Muraki and colleagues suggests that whole fruits consumption can lower the risk to develop type 2 diabetes equated to fruit juice. An opinion piece by Dr. Aseem Malhotra in the "British Medical Journal" suggests emphasis placed on the role of eating saturated fats in cardiovascular disease. A report by the charity Diabetes UK anticipated that five million people will develop type 2 diabetes by 2025.

    We have investigated the short-term effects of the saturated free fatty acid (FFA) palmitate on pancreatic alpha-cells. Palmitate (0.5 or 1 mmol/l bound to fatty acid-free albumin) stimulated glucagon secretion from intact mouse islets 1.5- to 2-fold when added in the presence of 1-15 mmol/l...

    Obesity and insulin resistance are associated with enhanced fatty acid utilization, which may play a central role in diabetic cardiomyopathy. We now assess the effect of the saturated fatty acid palmitate (1.2 mmol/l) on Ca2+ handling, cell shortening, and mitochondrial production of reactive...
