6:15- Health news tidbits. Interesting good news.
-If you’re one of the many people who has resolved to lose weight in the New Year, look no further than U.S. News & World Report’s annual ranking of the best diets. The low-fat DASH diet- which stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension- was named best overall, while Weight Watchers was deemed the best for weight loss. Other diets that got shout-outs include the Mediterranean Diet, the cholesterol-lowering TLC diet and the Vegetarian diet. On the other end of the spectrum, the increasingly-popular Paleo diet tied with the super-restrictive Dukan diet (supposedly favored by Kate Middleton) for last place.
-On a related note, research suggests the Mediterranean diet may effectively prevent diabetes, even when it doesn’t result in weight loss.
-Cancer death rates in the U.S. have decreased 20% over the last two decades, in large part because fewer Americans are smoking cigarettes. To that end, tobacco control efforts have saved 8 million lives over the last half century.
