Low-Carb Dieters Might Benefit From More Vegetables, Nuts
BOSTON (CBS) – Many people turn to low-carb diets to shed pounds but recent data suggests eliminating carbs from your diet could pose long-term health risks. Now a recent study published in The Lancet suggests that incorporating a lot of vegetables into a low-carb diet could offset those risks. Researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital followed more than 15,000 adults over 25 years. They found those who ate about half of their calories from carbohydrates had the lowest risk of premature death. But among those who followed a low-carb diet, favoring animal-based proteins and fat like beef, pork, chicken and ch...

Why Whole-Fat Milk and Yogurt Are Healthier Than You Think
For years, experts have recommended low-fat dairy products over the full-fat versions, which are higher in calories and contain more saturated fat. Recent research, however, indicates that full-fat dairy may actually be healthier than its reputation suggests, and that people who eat full-fat dairy are not more likely to develop cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes than people who consume low-fat dairy. They may even be less likely to gain weight. Now, new research published Tuesday in The Lancet, adds to that body of evidence. The research suggests that eating dairy products of all kinds is associated with a lower ri...

Changes in the architecture around cancer cells can fuel their spread
FINDINGSUCLA researchers have found that the extracellular matrix, the dense network of proteins and carbohydrates that surround a cell, can influence how cells move within the body by regulating their sugar consumption. The study shows that acute changes in a single component of the extracellular matrix can trigger a very rapid change in the metabolism and migration of the cell.  BACKGROUNDGiven its importance in the growth and migration in cancer cells, scientists have intensely studied how glucose metabolism can be regulated in response to a variety of both internal and external cues.
