The study backing the safety of statins is found to be fundamentally flawed
In a recent article in the Telegraph, Dr. Aseem Malhotra says there are major concerns about the reliability of the original data that has driven people to take statin drugs. These studies were based on predominantly industry-sponsored studies, by a group who has received hundreds of millions worth of research funding. He wants to know how statins are actually benefitting people because this information is not available. The original data suggests very few people have side effects, but in Dr. Malhotra’s experience, and looking at other data, it is likely to be much higher. It may be affecting up to 29%, which is a huge discrepancy of the originally suggested 1%.

New research reveals that diet drinks stop people from losing weight (oh the irony)
It has been found that the sugar replacement, aspartame, that makes up these diet soda pops actually disrupts metabolism, which has a huge effect on your weight, your hormones and as a result your health. Experts at Massachusetts General Hospital found that aspartame is made up of an amino acid called phenylalanine, which disrupts an enzyme that is key to fending off metabolic disorders. As we know, water is by far your healthiest beverage!

The new research indicates a need to re-evaluate the nutritional guidelines, which currently recommend two servings of low-fat milk for children over the age of two to reduce the risk of childhood obesity.
