Slow Research Day
I guess research money is easier to to get now. I saw an advance copy of a study to be reported in Circulation in July that has the astonishing finding "that eating fruits, fiber and vegetables is better for women's health than eating saturated fats and sugar."
Yes, these courageous researchers from Harvard School of Public Health recommend a diet that limits saturated fats, cholesterol and sodium. They advise lowering sugar consumption and eating more fruits, vegetables, whole-grain and high fiber foods.
Well, there you have it! In 2008 we now know that we should eat a healthy diet to promote health.
Maybe next they will study the effects of rubbing glass into eyeballs and how it affects vision.
