Why heart patients should avoid cream cake
Study examines the influence of rumenic acid on heart muscle fibers. Stand: 10.06.2021 Cardiovascular diseases are the most common cause of death in Germany. Important triggers for this are stress, lack of exercise and an unhealthy diet. Now a research team led by Dietmar Manstein, Director of the Institute of Biophysical Chemistry at Hannover Medical School (MHH), has discovered another reason why people with heart problems should avoid butter, cream cake or roast lamb: They contain rumenic acid, a trans fatty acid found in cow's milk products and the meat of ruminants.

Face to face
People remember faces better from personal meetings than through still or moving media images The human brain remembers faces better after a personal meeting than by looking at photos or videos, according to findings by neuroscientists at Friedrich Schiller University Jena. In the current issue of the "Journal of Neuroscience", the research team led by Prof. Gyula Kovács and Dr Géza Gergely Ambrus have published EEG data which show that the familiarity of a face is anchored measurably more strongly in the brain of the observer if the face is seen in person.
