According to the collected data, in this period of time macronutrient consumption levels are not appropriate if compared with the reference recommendations. The number of daily ingestions drops to 2 or 3, with regard to the 4 or 5 ingestions of the rest of the population in this period. In addition, scientists have established that, because of the diet, corporal fat increases and muscular mass falls.
The article nutritional assessment of a Moroccan university population in Ramadan time has been published by Professors María Jesús Oliveras López, Eduardo Agudo Aponte, Pablo Nieto Guindo, Fernando Martínez Martínez, Herminia López García de la Serrana and María del Carmen López Martínez. This study was carried out in a thirty-student of the UGR, all aged between 19 and 27, where 36% of the population were women and 64% men, and it was compared with a control population group, made up by thirty university volunteers who did not follow the Ramadan.Macronutrient deficit
Research results prove that it is possible to prevent an unbalanced diet during the Ramadan period. Scientists have proposed a diet in which fat has been reduced and proteins and carbohydrates increased, according to the daily needs of this young population group.
The researchers point out the importance of informing this group about the importance of a balanced diet with only three or four meals from sunset by means of energy-providing food and the necessary macronutrients for the whole day.
The scientists who have carried out this work have published it in scientific journals such as the ‘European journal of lipid science and technology’, ‘Nutrition’, ‘Analytical Chimica Acta’ and ‘Journal of nutrition’, among others.

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
