Why Diabetes Risk Is Higher For Older White Women

Phthalate exposure also contributed to a higher incidence of obesity, infertility, and other endocrine disorders over a six-year period. For reasons not yet understood by the scientists, this damaging associatio...

Walnuts Slash Cancer Risk
A new study out of Marshall University found that eating two ounces of walnuts a day for two weeks slowed breast cancer growth or reduced the risk of developing the disease.1 In the study, researchers gave a group of women who had a breast biopsy two ounces of walnuts every day until they had surgery two weeks later. They found significant changes in the tumor’s gene expression in the women who ate the nuts compared to those who didn’t. This backs up earlier research which found that eating two ounces of walnuts a day could help cut breast cancer risk in half.2 Extracts of walnuts stopped the spread of breast cancer ce...

The Truth About Common Digestive Health Fears
Everyone experiences digestive problems now and then, and they’re nobody’s idea of a good time. In a survey of nearly 72,000 adults in the U.S., 61% reported having had at least one gastrointestinal (GI) symptom over the previous week, and within that group, 58% said they’d had two or more GI symptoms over the past week, according to a study in a 2018 issue of the American Journal of Gastroenterology. Because symptoms like constipation, heartburn, and abdominal pain are generally vague and often don’t have an obvious cause, those suffering tend to fear the worst. “People get very concerned abo...

How Your Post-Thanksgiving Diet Could Help Save the Planet
As you tuck into your Thanksgiving dinner, the kick-off event (at least for Americans) of the holiday season, spare a thought for the planet’s carbon waistline. Food production is a major source of greenhouse gas emissions, accounting for more than a third of emissions worldwide — and a new study has given fresh insight into how small changes in the diet can have a big impact on food-related emissions. And even if it doesn’t inspire you to forgo the turkey and trimmings, it serves as a good reminder that a post-holiday pause on overindulgence might be just the kind of thanks Mother Earth might appreciate ...

Ultimately, beneficial fungi could be more effective than pesticides against nematodes
(American Phytopathological Society) Over the past 30 years, the use of soil fumigants and nematicides used to protect cole crops, such as broccoli and Brussel sprouts, against cyst nematode pathogens in coastal California fields has decreased dramatically. A survey of field samples in 2016 indicated the nematode population has also decreased, suggesting the existence of a natural cyst nematode controlling process in these fields.

Your Body ’s First Responders
B vitamins aren’t glamourous… With the exception of vitamin B12, you may not be familiar with what the other B vitamins do. That can be a problem.

Attention Vegetable Haters: It Could Be In Your Genes
By Sandee LaMotte, CNN (CNN) — If certain vegetables have always made you gag, you may be more than a picky eater. Instead, you might be what scientists call a “super-taster:” a person with a genetic predisposition to taste food differently. Unfortunately, being a super-taster doesn’t make everything taste better. In fact, it can do the opposite. Super-tasters are extremely sensitive to bitterness, a common characteristic of many dark green, leafy veggies such as broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and Brussels sprouts, to name a few. “The person who has that genetic propensity gets more of the sul...
