Natural compound coupled with specific gut microbes may prevent severe flu
(Washington University School of Medicine) Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have found that a particular gut microbe can prevent severe flu infections in mice, likely by breaking down naturally occurring compounds -- called flavonoids -- commonly found in foods such as black tea, red wine and blueberries.

High-flavonoid foods, like berries and apples, 'prevent weight gain'
ConclusionThis study found that people who ate more flavonoids, specifically anthocyanins (coming mainly from blueberries and strawberries), flavonoid polymers (from tea and apples), and flavonols (from tea and onions), gained less weight than those consuming less over a 24-year period. Every extra 10mg of anthocyanins, 138mg of flavonoid polymers, and 7mg of flavonols was linked to 70-100g less weight gained over four-year intervals. This isn’t a lot, but adds up over the years.Readers should be aware that cohort studies like this can find associations between consumption of certain food ingredients (like flavonoids...

Sweet dreams: eating chocolate prevents heart disease
If you’re a chocoholic, the news out of England is tantalizing: middle-aged and older adults who eat up to 3.5 ounces of chocolate a day (that’s more than two standard Hershey bars) seem to have lower rates of heart disease than those who spurn chocolate. At least that was the conclusion of a study that followed the health of nearly 21,000 resident of Norfolk, England, for 11 years. Among those in the top tier of chocolate consumption, 12% developed or died of cardiovascular disease during the study, compared to 17.4% of those who didn’t eat chocolate. The results were published online in the medical jour...
