Acrylamide can be found in many types of food and is the result of the cooking process. Highest levels of acrylamide in food with starch cooked at temperatures over 120 degrees Celsius, for example chips, bread, biscuits, cakes, and roasted coffee beans.

The longer the foodstuff is cooked, the more acrylamide is formed. Therefore, researchers in the UK recommends that starchy foods cooked until golden color and not left until brown.

Animal studies have shown, acrylamide is toxic to DNA and lead to cancer. Therefore, experts assume it is also true in humans, although to date no conclusions.

Vitamin D deficiency can seriously undermine the strength and athletic performance, according to a new study from the University of Tulsa.

The researchers studied the levels of vitamin D in about 100 college athletes. They also tested how fast the athletes can run, how high and how far they can jump, and how much they can do squats in one repetition.

Approximately one out of three athletes have adequate vitamin D levels (less than 72 nanomoles per liter of blood).

Athletes with adequate levels of vitamin D that can do squats 77 percent lighter than the lack of vitamin D.

The ability to run athletes who are deficient in vitamin D are also 18 percent more slowly, the ability to perform a vertical jump 15 percent lower, and the distance jumps to 80 percent shorter.

How could this happen? Theory says vitamin D may help muscle cells release calcium more efficiently during the process of muscle contraction, said study author Rachel Hildebrand, Ph.D.

One million people in the US living with Parkinson's per year. The cause of Parkinson's so far unclear. Recent research has shown the buildup of a-synuclein in the brain play a role in disease development. Clumps of a-synuclein caused the death of brain cells.

Researchers then hunt for compounds that can block the coagulation, thereby helping to treat or prevent disease.
