A model of social influence on body mass index.
We develop an agent-based model of social influence on body weight. The model's assumptions are grounded in theory and evidence from physiology, social psychology, and behavioral science, and its outcomes are tested against longitudinal data from American youth. We discuss the implementation of the...
Validity and reliability of food security measures.
This paper reviews some of the existing food security indicators, discussing the validity of the underlying concept and the expected reliability of measures under reasonably feasible conditions. The main objective of the paper is to raise awareness on existing trade-offs between different qualities...
Mainstreaming nutrition metrics in household surveys-toward a multidisciplinary convergence of data systems.
Since the 2008 food price crisis, food and nutrition security are back on the global development agenda, with particular emphasis on agricultural pathways toward improved nutrition. Parallel efforts are being promoted to improve the data and metrics for monitoring progress toward positive nutritiona...
A nutrition/health mindset on commercial Big Data and drivers of food demand in modern and traditional systems.
We examine digital commercial marketing data through the lenses of the four A's of food security (availability, accessibility, affordability, appeal) using advanced consumer choice analytics for archetypal traditional (fresh fruits and vegetables) and modern (soft drinks) product categories. We demo...
An evolving perspective about the origins of childhood undernutrition and nutritional interventions that includes the gut microbiome.
The Sackler Institute for Nutrition Science and the World Health Organization (WHO) have worked together to formulate a research agenda for nutrition science. Undernutrition of children has profound effects on health, development, and achievement of full human capacity. Undernutrition is not simply...

Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) is a morbid, iatrogenic, and potentially lethal condition caused by the pharmacological induction of ovulation. In OHSS, the ovaries are the site of significant stromal edema with bilateral cystic ovarian enlargement. It has been suggested tha...
Long-term progestin-only contraception in humans versus animal models
We describe these models including the guinea pig, an animal model we have previously investigated, to assess the mechanisms involved in abnormal uterine bleeding following long-term progestin-only contraception. © 2011 New York Academy of Sciences....
Epigenetics in lupus
Accumulating epidemiological, clinical, and experimental evidence supports the conclusion of a critical role of epigenetic factors in immune programming. This understanding provides the basis for elucidating how the intricate interactions of the genome, epigenome, and transcriptome s...
The role played by natural selection on Mendelian traits in humans
We review several examples of Mendelian mutations-associated with various disease conditions or other traits of anthropological interest-that have increased in frequency in the human population as a result of past positive selection. These examples clearly illustrate the value of a population geneti...
