A large international study conducted in 17 countries and recently published in the New England Journal of Medicine has found the advice given by doctors to their heart patients and others with regard to sodium has been WRONG.

Conventional advice given by most Western doctors and even published by the U.S. Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion – part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services – has recommended that those under 50 years old limit their sodium intake to less than 2,300 milligrams per day, and those over 50 limit their sodium consumption to less then 1,500 milligrams per day.

French “Paradox” Solved: It’s Not The Red Wine

French

In 1993 French researcher Serge Renaud coined the phrase "the French paradox."  He was referring to the mysterious heart health enjoyed by the French despite their high saturated fat diet.  Ever since then, people all over the world have been guzzling red wine and popping resveratrol pills in an effort to duplicate the effect.

Some 20 years later, researchers are now suggesting that rather than red wine, the secret to the French paradox may be the protective effect of their aged cheeses.

Lycopene Matches Statins in Improving Blood Vessel Function

We've known for decades that cardiovascular disease is notably lower in southern Europe especially compared to the U.S. The Mediterranean diet, consisting of more fruits, vegetables, and olive oil, usually gets the credit.

Magnesium Supplements Improve Metabolic Syndrome

The importance of magnesium to human health is under-appreciated.  This one essential mineral promotes heart health, normal blood pressure, healthy nerve and muscle function, a strong immune system, and a good memory. 

And magnesium is particularly important for regulating blood sugar and the metabolism.  In fact, magnesium deficiency can predict both diabetes and heart disease.  Studies show people who consume the most magnesium in their diet are least likely to develop type 2 diabetes.  And unfortunately, diabetics lose more magnesium than most people.

Nuts Increase Cognitive Scores Among Elderly Women

Researchers from Harvard University and Brigham and Women's Hospital have confirmed that eating more nuts every day will increase cognitive skills - at least among elderly women.

For six years, the researchers followed 16,010 women who 70 years old or older, and 15,467 completed the final cognitive interviews.

The researchers utilized phone call interviews of the women to track their diets and test their cognitive skills. They used the standardized test called the Telephone Interview for Cognitive Status, or TICS. This tests for cognition using memory recall, fluency and attention testing.

Obesity Linked to Poor Sleep

Poor sleep and obesity are like two peas in a pod. If you don't sleep well, your chances of becoming overweight or obese become greater.

This is the finding of research that has studied sleep habits together with relative weight and waist circumference among different populations.

The most recent study comes from the College of Medicine at Korea University, where researchers conducted a nationwide study that included 9,077 adults.

The research surveyed the participants and correlated the number of hours they slept a night together with their body mass index (BMI).

Pistachio: Potent Medicine for Heart and Airway

Pistachio: Potent Medicine for Heart and Airway

For thousands of years Ayurvedic medicine has utilized the galls of the pistachio tree to treat asthma, skin conditions and heart conditions. Now science is showing us the proof.

In Hawaii and parts of Asia, there is a local term for the activity of snacking on partially cracked shells and seeds of pistachio nuts along with a few other notable seeds such as apricot: "Crack seed."

One might appreciate the term "crack" with the fact that these nuts – together with the surrounding partially opened shell – are typically roasted and nicely flavored with salts and spices. They can be, well, sort of addictive, and the sweet-salty flavor of the shell often rivals the rich taste of the nut meat inside.

Sodas, Fries, Snacks and Inactivity Raise Diabetes Risk

Researchers from the The Netherlands' Utrecht University Medical Center have determined in a large study that a diet rich in soft drinks, fries and snacks substantially increases the risk of type 2 diabetes.

The research followed 20,835 Dutch people. The researchers monitored the diets and diet patterns of the patients through questionnaires and cross-referenced these with the incidence of type 2 diabetes among the subjects.

The analysis allowed the researchers to separate the subjects' diets into two general patterns. The first pattern found a variety of foods, which included diets rich in fruits, vegetables and lean protein foods were accompanied by a lower risk of diabetes. Those subjects with a dietary pattern with increased intake of soft drinks, fries and snacks, however, had an increased incidence of type 2 diabetes.

Soy Supplements Don’t Help With Hot Flashes or Bone Loss

Is soy a menopausal superfood?  Some call it a lifesaver, claiming it protects against bone loss, and reduces hot flashes.

But when it comes to supplements, research finds that soy isoflavone tablets do not appear to be associated with a reduction in bone loss or menopausal symptoms in women within the first five years of menopause.

According to a Florida study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, the beginning stages of menopause are often accompanied by rapid bone loss, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and sleep disturbances, among other symptoms.
