“Nutritious food like vegetables, fruits, and fish can carry high price tags, but a healthy diet doesn’t have to cost a fortune, according to a study. Researchers analyzed the eating habits of almost 80,000 women in the U.S. to see how healthful and costly their diets were. While the healthi8est diets were more expensive on average than the least healthy ($4.62 per day versus $3.72), plenty of women ate well on the cheap. The authors say beans, whole grains, nuts, and soy gave the biggest health bang for the buck. Red or processed meat and high fat dairy were the least nutritious buys.” -Source: American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, published online Sept. 1, 2010- For information on effective food supplements click here.
“Bran, the outer coating of grains like oats, wheat, and rice, may be behind the storied health benefits of whole grains, a study found. Women with type 2 diabetes who ate the most bran had about a third less risk of dying from any cause over 26 years than those who ate the least bran. Other components of whole grains–germ and cereal fiber–showed no significant benefit in death rates after lifestyle and dietary were taken into account.” -source: Circulation, online May 10, 2010
