Teenagers' diet affects their health later in life

Whether a teenager eats crisps or vegetables is not unimportant: New research from Aarhus University shows that there is a correlation between the dietary habits of young girls and their blood pressure and cholesterol level when they reach the ages of 40-50. An appropriate diet can even prevent illness.

The figure shows the structure of C1 investigated by two different techniques. To the left is shown data recorded by the scientists with X- (black curve) at the PETRA III synchrotron in Hamborg. The grey curve shows how a curve calculated from the model in the middle panel fits to the eksperimental data. To the right is shown so-called class averages of images recorded with electron microskopy. In row two to the right is clearly seen 10 protrusions, which is strictly nono-compatible with the the old model for activation of complement. For this reason the EM-data was pivotal for the results.

The activation of the C1 protein is a fundamental mechanism in immunology, and therefore the new research results also have…
