TWU seeks female volunteers for red grape study


DENTON — The Texas Woman’s University Department of Nutrition and Food Sciences is seeking volunteers for a study of the effects of red grapes in increasing bone mineral density and/or decreasing fat mass.

Women between the ages of 47 and 63, especially those in the first five years of menopause, are needed for the 90-day research study. Those who have low fruit and vegetable consumption and a primarily sedentary lifestyle may be eligible for inclusion in the study. Women who are currently taking medication for menopausal symptoms or are physically active during any time during the study cannot be included.
