    Think twice about that granola bar in the morning because, yes you’re reading this correctly, ice cream may be a better option. A new study from Tufts University in Boston has created the “Food Compass,” a “nutrient profiling system” that ranks how healthy foods are by giving options a score. And the system is turning some preconceived notions of health on their head, namely ranking a granola bar lower than a chocolate ice cream cone topped with nuts. Researchers spent three years investigating over 8,000 different types of food and drink, examining 54 different attributes and using “cutting edge science”...

    In recent months, I’ve dedicated many articles to exposing the intentional destruction of our food system. The decision of the Dutch government to impose nitrogen pollution restrictions on farmers is but one example of this. This “green” policy will cut livestock production in the country by 30% in the next year, put farmers out of business, and force them to sell their land. Since The Netherlands is the largest meat exporter in the European Union,1 it will also result in meat shortages around the world. According to Dutch Parliament member Thierry Baudet,2 this “green” policy is really a thinly veiled...
  • Depression linked to consuming an inflammatory diet, increasing risk of frailty

    A new study found a link between depression, diet, and the development of frailty. Frailty, defined as a recognizable state of increased vulnerability resulting from a decline in function across multiple physiological systems, affects 10–15% older adults and often co-occurs with other health conditions, like depression. Diet is thought to be a major contributor to frailty development. While previous studies established a link between an inflammatory diet—including artificial trans fats (like partially hydrogenated oil), refined carbohydrates, and saturated fats—and the risk of development frailty, this is one of the first studies to try to understand the impact of depression on...
  • Mediterranean diet may reduce chance of frailty, according to new study

    A new study published has found that consuming a Mediterranean-style diet may prevent frailty. Defined as a recognizable state of increased vulnerability resulting from a decline in function across multiple physiological systems, frailty affects 10–15% older adults, and leads to other health issues. Although benefits of a Mediterranean-style diet are well known, its role in the reduction of frailty in older Americans who do not normally consume such a diet was unclear. The study showed that consuming a Mediterranean-style diet may prevent the development of frailty with aging. The study included 2,384 non-frail adults with Mediterranean-style dietary pattern score and...

  • Protein boosts height growth in girls (More = taller, less = shorter - Does not work with boys)

    Quite a few young men would like to increase their height. However, a study by nutritionists shows that they do not benefit from increased protein intake in terms of their adult height. In contrast, young women often see it as problematic when their height significantly exceeds 1.80 meters. Here, during growth, a protein intake adapted to the recommendations can even cause a reduction of a few centimeters. While an increase in protein intake had no effect on body height in the boys and young men, a clear relationship was found in the girls. According to the scientists' calculations, an average...

    Cranberries are famous for their distinct tart taste. However, new research by a team at King’s College London suggests this delicious fruit should be just as synonymous with healthy hearts. Scientists report eating just 100 grams of cranberries per day contributes to particularly robust cardiac functioning in healthy men. Even better, the cardiac benefits of cranberry consumption appeared almost immediately. A group of 45 healthy men took part in this project. Half the group consumed whole cranberry powder equivalent to 100g of fresh cranberries per day (9 grams of powder), while the second half took a placebo each day. Both...

    A non-profit organization called “Feeding our Future (FOF)” was stopped in its tracks this week by the FBI after using millions of federal dollars meant for child nutrition to instead buy “numerous vehicles” and 14 properties, according to the Bureau. FBI Special Agent Travis Wilmer wrote in an affidavit this week: “The companies and their owners received tens of millions of dollars in federal funds for use in providing nutritious meals to underprivileged children and adults. Almost none of this money was used to feed children. Instead, the participants in the scheme misappropriated the money and used it to purchase...

    Young adults in the United States can add more than a decade to their life expectancy by changing from a typical Western diet to one that includes more legumes, whole grains and nuts, and less red and processed meat, an analysis published Tuesday by PLOS Medicine found. For older people, the anticipated gains to life expectancy from such dietary changes would be smaller, but still substantial, the researchers said. Young women who changed to an "optimal" diet high in fruit and vegetables and low in red and processed meats beginning at age 20 -- and stuck to it -- would...

    Home is where the heart is — especially the healthy heart. Just by way of cooking your own food, you’re likely enjoying a healthier diet than those who rely on eating out, a new study finds. Researchers at the University of Washington interviewed 437 residents of nearby King County, asking them to fill out a questionnaire detailing their eating experiences. They compared this data to a metric devised by the USDA called the Healthy Eating Index. The index, which evaluates one’s compliance with federal guidelines set for a healthy diet, is weighted on a 100-point scale. The study showed that...

    Medical Xpress / The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition ^ | Dec. 7, 2021 | Courtney L Millar et al
    Results of a study indicate that regularly consuming a diet of pro-inflammatory foods (e.g., those rich in simple carbohydrates or in saturated fats) is associated with increased likelihood of developing frailty in middle-aged and older adults. Frailty affects between 10-15 percent of community-living older adults—making it a significant public health issue. Approximately 1 in 6 community-dwelling older adults will develop frailty, a serious condition of impaired function of ability, which carries increased risk of falls, hospitalizations, and mortality. Previous studies linked specific nutrients with frailty or physical function but did not capture an individual's entire diet and its impact on...

    Randomized controlled trial found that families with high avocado consumption self-reported reduced caloric intake and an overall healthier diet. In a novel study, researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine and the Herbert Wertheim School of Public Health and Human Longevity Science conducted a randomized controlled trial comparing the potential health effects between families that consumed a low allotment of avocados (three per week) and families that consumed a high allotment (14 per week) over six months. All families were of Mexican descent. They found that the high avocado allotment families self-reported lower caloric consumption, reducing their...

    A new clinical trial has demonstrated that a differential allotment of avocados may impact overall self-reported caloric consumption, as well as macro- and micronutrient nutrient intake, including saturated fat and sodium, and food groups, including dairy, refined grains, and red and processed meats. “Based on their nutrient profile, avocados could be a favorable component of a plant-based eating pattern, with half of a medium sized fruit providing up to 20% of the recommended daily fiber, 10% potassium, 5% magnesium, 15% folate, and 7.5 g of monounsaturated fatty acids,” said study first author Dr. Lorena Pacheco, a postdoctoral researcher at Harvard...

    The study, published in the journal Nature and part-funded by the UK charity Worldwide Cancer Research, uncovers how palmitic acid alters the cancer genome, increasing the likelihood the cancer will spread. The researchers have started developing therapies that interrupt this process and say a clinical trial could start in the next couple of years. Newly published findings, led by researchers at IRB Barcelona, Spain, reveal that one such fatty acid commonly found in palm oil, called palmitic acid, promotes metastasis in oral carcinomas and melanoma skin cancer in mice. Other fatty acids called oleic acid and linoleic acid—omega-9 and omega-6...

    A new study from Penn State finds an association between eating mushrooms every day and a lower likelihood of experiencing depression. Mushrooms contain several substances reported to have antidepressant qualities. This research sets the stage for further study regarding a causal link between the consumption of mushrooms and a reduced risk of depression. Researchers at Penn State College of Medicine in Hershey, PA, have been investigating the potential health benefits of eating mushrooms. In May 2021, they published a study that suggested a connection between mushroom consumption and a lower risk of cancer. They also published a study that found...
