Several zoo staff was immediately put into round-the-clock service for the care team for the baby and called it Team Fiona. Before long, Team Fiona was no longer just a team — it was a hashtag.

Study Finds Link Between Gluten-Free Diet And Type 2 Diabetes Risk

Study Finds Link Between Gluten-Free Diet And Type 2 Diabetes Risk

Most dietitians and doctors will tell you, a varied diet is key to being healthy. And seeing as they are actual qualified experts and not Instagram or blog-based advocates, you should be listening to them and not the latter. A new study has found that adopting a gluten-free or low-gluten diet can enhance your risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The major study from Harvard University, which was presented yesterday at a meeting of the American Heart Association in Portland, reviewed 30 years’ worth of medical data from 200,000 participants, and found that those who limited their gluten intake or avoided it completely actually had a 13 percent higher chance of developing type 2 diabetes. "We wanted to determine if gluten consumption will affect health in people with no apparent med
Is washing your produce a waste of time?

Is washing your produce a waste of time?

Food
It's an unconscious act for many: Before you eat raw produce, rinse it off. But what would happen if we didn't? Probably nothing, food experts say. While reflexively washing a radish does cut down your risk of illness, experts said that risk is small to begin with. And what's more, they stress that rinsing does not clean all produce equally. Randy Worobo, a food microbiology professor at Cornell University, and Linda J. Harris, chair of the food science and technology department at University of California-Davis, shared on how to best wash produce, and why our best efforts may not matter much. "Washing isn’t nearly as effective as cooking for reducing bacteria," Harris said. "But it can play a role when you want to eat your produce fresh." Produce less risky than imagined Most o

For those hoping to shed some wintertime weight gain, research suggests that going vegetarian — or even vegan — can help.When scientists looked at the body mass index of more than 37,000 Britons of all ages in 2003, they found that while the average male meat-eater had BMI of about 24.4, just shy of being overweight, the average vegan had BMI of 22.4. Among women, the patterns were similar. A 2009 study of Seventh-day Adventist church members across North America showed an even more striking difference in BMI: more than five points between those on an omnivorous diet (28.8) and those eating only plant-based foods (23.6). You could easily explain such findings by citing general differences in lifestyle choices between vegans and meat-lovers. Scientists have found that people on plant-bas
