‘Research conducted recently, however, suggests that by understanding the mechanisms of how breastfeeding and the composition of individual milk affect infant development, we may have the ability to generate a far more nuanced view of the bond between breastfeeding and weight problems risk.’ Dr. Woo and her colleague at Cincinnati Children's, Lisa Martin, PhD, suggest 3 potential biological factors related to breastfeeding that might influence obesity later in existence: the function of maternal obesity, the effect of breastfeeding on how the digestive tract processes food, and how breastfeeding may influence the risk of childhood weight problems through alterations in taste diet and preferences.The study is among the first to state the hippocampus is formed differently in heavy marijuana smokers and the various looking shape is directly linked to poor long-term memory space performance. Previous research of cannabis users have shown either the oddly formed hippocampus or poor long-term memory but non-e have linked them. Previous analysis by the same Northwestern team showed poor short-term and functioning storage performance and abnormal forms of brain structures in the sub-cortex like the striatum, globus pallidus and thalamus. ‘Both our recent research link the chronic use of marijuana during adolescence to these variations in the form of brain regions that are critical to memory space and that may actually last for at least a few years after people quit using it,’ stated lead research author Matthew Smith, assistant professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at the Feinberg College of Medicine.
