*EDITORS PLEASE NOTE: RESENDING TO ADD SOUNDBITE FROM POLICE CHIEF* Malaysian authorities on Thursday (August 15) said a Irish-French girl whose remains were found near a jungle stream had died from internal bleeding - probably due to prolonged hunger and stress.

The body of Nora Anne Quoirin, who suffered from learning difficulties, was found on Tuesday, without any clothing (August 13).

The fifteen year-old had been missing for 10 days after she disappeared from a rainforest resort in Seremban, about 4 miles south of the Malaysian capital.

State police chief Mohamad Mat Yusop spoke to reporters.

(SOUNDBITE) (Bahasa Malaysia) SEMBILAN STATE POLICE CHIEF, MOHAMAD MAT YUSOP, SAYING: "From Nora's body, it can be confirmed that she has been dead for two to three days, not more than four days and there are no signs or evidence showing that she was raped (...) The main reason for her death is intestinal damage, the intestine was punctured, which could be due to starvation for a long period of time and could also be due to prolonged stress." Police also said there was no evidence "for the time being" to indicate Nora was a victim of kidnapping.

Dairy-rich diet may lower risks of diabetes, high blood pressure

A recent study links eating at least two daily servings of dairy to lower cluster of factors that heighten cardiovascular disease risk (metabolic syndrome).The observed associations were strongest for full-fat dairy products, the findings indicated.The study was published online in the journal BMJ Open Diabetes Research and Care.To see whether these associations might also be found in a broader range of countries, the researchers drew on people taking part in the Prospective Urban Rural Epidemiology (PURE) study.Participants were all aged between 35 and 70 and came from 21 countries: Argentina; Bangladesh; Brazil; Canada; Chile; China; Colombia; India; Iran; Malaysia; Palestine; Pakistan; Philippines, Poland; South Africa; Saudi Arabia; Sweden; Tanzania; Turkey; United Arab Emirates; and Zimbabwe.Usual dietary intake over the previous 12 months was assessed by means of Food Frequency Questionnaires. Dairy products included milk, yoghurt, yoghurt drinks, cheese and dishes prepared with dairy products, and were classified as full or low fat (1-2 per cent).Butter and cream were assessed separately as these are not commonly eaten in some of the countries studied.Information on personal medical history, use of prescription medicines, educational attainment, smoking and measurements of weight, height, waist circumference, blood pressure and fasting blood glucose were also collected.
