Not surprising, but another published article suggests reviewing the evidence (or lack of it) for recommending we limit dietary cholesterol. After all, it isn’t associated with heart disease anyway.

It’s bad enough that people don’t get enough vegetables. After some debate, pizza will continue to be counted as a vegetable source. After all, it does have two tablespoons of tomato paste on it.

A new study in the Journal of Nutrition shows eating larger amounts of protein less frequently led to greater protein synthesis than eating smaller amounts more frequently, at least in pigs. It could be interesting if similar results are found in humans. We’ve talked about meal frequency before and how eating every 2-3 hours probably isn’t required. Dr. Briffa also discussed this topic recently.

Creatine is often perceived as a performance supplement. It is certainly great for sports performance, but it has other positive effects as well. A new study in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research shows it can help reduce DNA damage from exercise as well. Sounds like a plus for longevity!

Time did a good job discussing a new study on BPA and how much ends up in our blood from soup cans. It’s best to avoid this stuff (BPA, not quality soup) as much as possible. Hopefully it will be banned in the US before long.

Mark Hyman offers up 8 Steps to Reversing Diabesity. Simple suggestions, but sometimes it’s more difficult to implement than it should be.

Experience Life got a behind the scenes look at the health and fitness philosophy of Erwin Le Corre of MovNat. It makes you want to get outside and get moving. Too bad it’s so cold in the northern US right now (not that it’s an excuse, just saying…).
