A major study, “Red Meat Consumption and Mortality” (Harvard School of Public Health; Hu, et al; Archives of Internal Medicine, March 12, 2012), has concluded that red meat is associated with an increased risk of total cardiovascular disease (CVD) and cancer mortality and that substitution of other healthy protein sources for red meat is associated with lower mortality risk.
A new major study showed men and women who ate a handful of peanuts daily increased longevity. Results were strongest when peanuts were eaten daily, reducing death from multiple causes by up to 20%, but benefits were also seen with eating peanuts less than once a week, once a week, and two to four times a week with 7%, 11%, and 13% risk reductions respectively.
A new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, looked at type of fat intakes among men diagnosed with prostate cancer from the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study (1986-2010).
