A statistical model indicated that a 40-g increase in EVOO intake led to increased peak VO2 by just under 2 mL/kg/min, a roughly 6% improvement compared with predicted peak VO2; oxygen uptake efficiency slope also increased by about 0.1.
The nine people in the study had a median age of 56 years. Five were women, and six people were Black.
Dietary recalls were conducted at baseline, 4, 8, and 12 week visits. Participants underwent CPET at baseline and at 12 weeks.
“Further studies are warranted to confirm this finding and establish a basis for testing the effect of EVOO on cardiorespiratory fitness as well as major cardiovascular outcomes and to explore these effects across differing baseline intakes of EVOO,” Billingsley said.
“His work is very compatible with mine in that he uses liquid and the ceramics is so fluid with him but of course it’s solid,” Swinand remarked.
Her portion of the exhibit includes 10 large-scale watercolors “in dialogue with Noel Bailey’s stunning ceramic forms.”
Later this year Swinand will open a one-woman show, “Nature Imagined,” at the Worcester Art Museum. It premieres on the museum’s reopening day, Thursday, Oct. 1, and will run through Feb. 7, 2021.
When asked about her art, Swinand explained: “I work a lot with shape. A lot of contemporary artists are more interested in color and texture but I kind of commit myself to shapes.”
She is an avid gardener and nature informs her art which reflects what she thinks could be believable and authentic in nature.
