Fat and Sugar, Part 1

Fat and Sugar, Part 1 | Nutrition & Health | Scoop.it
First, fat was the dietary bad guy. We were warned back in the 1980s to cut back on eggs, meat and full-fat dairy to avoid heart disease. So we started eating more bread, rice and pasta and fat-free snacks. But we got sicker and fatter. Now sugar is the bad guy. Contributor Jill Eisen explores the complex, and sometimes contradictory, science of nutrition -- and tries to find clarity amidst the thicket of studies and ambiguous research. Part 2 airs Wednesday, June 22.

"It's the hormone insulin that makes you fat and keeps you fat. It's also the hormone insulin in excess that's the number one predictor of heart disease. In essence we've been fighting the wrong enemy the last 15 years."

Nintendo to embrace Social TV

Nintendo to embrace Social TV | Nutrition & Health | Scoop.it

Nintendo has put Social TV at the heart of its next-generation games console, the Wii U, which launches in North America on 18 November. 

A key sales point for the console is the TVii service. This combines TV remote control, TV show discovery and Social TV interaction.

Consumers will be able to use the console's touch screen GamePad controller as a universal remote control for their TV set and related devices, such as a cable set-top box and DVR.

The GamePad TV programme guide helps viewers navigate broadcast and on-demand TV shows. Nintendo believes this addresses a consumer need to easily find what they want to watch from a disparate variety of sources: live broadcast television, pay-TV channels, recordings on DVRs and online video providers including Netflix, Hulu Plus and Amazon Instant Video
