Tim Tebow, the former NFL player, has said that he has been a big fan of the keto diet and has been following it since 2012 when his trainer introduced him to it. He said the keto diet has been good and worked well for him; however, he still misses one special meal called pizza pie that his mother used to make it.
A group of doctors at the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine has urged the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to put a warning label on cheese products, stating that cheese could increase the risk of breast cancer. Several studies have found that dairy products contain estrogen that can increase the breast cancer mortality rate.
A new study has found that people with eating disorders – such as anorexia nervosa, binge eating, and bulimia – are at greater risk of attempting suicide. Researchers found that most people with eating disorders do not seek help and have issues with their normal routines and getting along with others due to overvaluation of their body shape or weight.
A new study published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association has found that US diet still lacks quality and healthy foods, meaning Americans are still eating bad foods that can increase the risk of chronic diseases. However, the study found that there has been a mild reduction in salt and sugar intake.
A new study has found that eating onion and garlic could help reduce the risk of developing breast cancer in women. The study was conducted in Puerto Rico where a recipe called sofrito is popular, which has onion and garlic as key ingredients. The study authors found that onion and garlic contain anti-carcinogenic compounds.
The safety of keto diet, or keto pills, for patients with heart disease is poorly understood. Some experts say that it is good to follow keto unless you choose healthy fats, while some say that it could suddenly increase LDL (bad) cholesterol and triglycerides, promoting atherosclerosis, which could lead to heart disease or increase the risk of a heart attack.
A recent study has found that vegans, vegetarians, and pescetarians have a lower risk of coronary heart disease than meat-eaters but have a higher risk of stroke. The study researchers said that vegetarians and vegans had a 20 percent risk of stroke than meat-eaters. However, the findings of the study were observational.
