Remember when coffee was bad for you? No more. Now studies show that coffee may offer protection from a variety of cancers.
As a child, I had whole milk plus additional cream on my breakfast cereal. As a grown up, I reluctantly turned to skim milk because it was “better” for me. But now, a study shows that people who drank more milk fat had a lower incidence of heart disease. So back to whole milk I go, happily.
But what really got to me is a new study (http://nyti.ms/1OT9neF) that indicates that taking calcium doesn’t improve bone health. Celiac disease (from which I suffer) wreaks havoc on your bones, so I have taken large doses of calcium and vitamin D for almost sixteen years. Have I have lugged calcium supplements with me all over the world for nothing?
I’ll report back after I visit the endocrinologist next month.
