While some molecules unload via a type of combined diffusion, others make their way through convection. Sugar must travel from a high concentration to low, via a process called plasmodesmata, which involves two pores connecting with cells close by. These pores provide the ability to have a specific flow resistance, which means they can release a necessary amount of discrete pulses which is referred to as batch unloading.
This study took a group of individuals over a wide spectrum and had them go through various body scans, complete various tests and pinpoint their level of health. It found that those with long-term access to healthier foods are at less of a risk of developing cardio metabolic conditions that can be very debilitating and potentially dangerous. The researchers explained that it is quality of diet, not quantity, that matters most. It was found that healthcare providers should continually advocate their patients incorporate a quality healthy diet that they follow for the long haul, for the majority of their lives.
