Large population studies have shown people who eat beans and soy foods at least four times a week are less likely to develop heart disease... Research examining the effects of pulse consumption has indicated that eating legumes significantly lowers blood pressure in people with high blood pressure, as well as in people with normal blood pressure... Analysis of eight different trials as part of the study found that when one cup of legumes, such as faba beans, lentils or chickpeas, was substituted for other foods of the same energy value, blood pressure was reduced by 2.25 millimetres of mercury...

Parents weighed all the food their children ate over three days, and researchers calculated whether children were receiving adequate amounts of key nutrients and fibre as part of the study... While the study indicated that most of the children were receiving the recommended amounts of iron, zinc, calcium and vitamin C, only 18 per cent were getting enough fibre... About 14 grams of fibre a day is considered adequate for children aged one to three years, but the study revealed that children aged one to two years are only eating an average of nine grams of fibre a day...

"Nearly 1200 farmers will grow GM canola this season, 20 per cent more growers than last year, and we expect this growth to continue," he says... Professor Timothy Colmer, from UWA's School of Plant Biology and Institute of Agriculture, says his team has studied how salt affects the reproductive processes in chickpea plants: "Our findings, together with other experiments on responses of photosynthesis and sugar supply for seed filling in saline conditions, improve our understanding of chickpea's salt tolerance," he says... "Australian growers using GM canola or cotton have reaped more than US$885 million (A$1215 million) in farm income benefits over the 18-year period covered by the report," said Matthew Cossey, CropLife Australia's CEO...

Using data from the Melbourne Collaborative Cohort Study 1 , the long-term health benefits of eating legumes have now been analysed by researchers from the University of Sydney and the University of Wollongong 2 , an analysis commissioned by the Grains and Legumes Nutrition Council (GLNC)... Researchers Professor Vicki Flood from the Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Sydney, and Dr Joanna Russell from the School of Health and Society, University of Wollongong, found the results of this study to be consistent with results of other studies that show diets containing legumes, such as the Mediterranean diet, help protect against heart disease... "Our study found middle-aged people who ate legumes such as baked beans or lentils at least two times a week were 20 per cent less likely to die from cardiovascular disease, including stroke or heart attack...

Commercially available weight tapes are available for use on horses and cattle but tapes for pigs only extend to a maximum of 130 kg liveweight... To provide the data needed to establish the correlation between heart-girth circumference and liveweight in sows, we measured some sows in the University of Adelaide's piggery...
