BR center to continue supplement study

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - An LSU campus gets a second, five-year
federal grant to study whether plant extracts can keep people from
getting fat and developing other conditions which often lead to
diabetes.
The Pennington Biomedical Research Center is one of five centers
getting the $7.5 million awards announced Tuesday - and one of
three which is getting a grant renewed. It will continue working
with researchers at Rutgers University and Louisiana State
University.
Dr. William Cefalu, head of Pennington's program, says many
people trying to lose weight or avoid gaining weight take products
that have never been tested, thinking that a product made from
plantsa A labeled natural will help.
