Coffee May Reduce Prostate Cancer Risk

Coffee seems to be like marijuana: they keep finding more and more health benefits. A new study suggests that coffee may reduce the risk of prostate cancer.
Men who have a love affair with coffee, but feel guilty about overindulging in it, may have cause to celebrate today. A recent study conducted by the Harvard School of Public Health, found that men who consumed the most coffee had the lowest risk of developing prostate cancer, particularly the most fatal forms of the illness: ABC News reports. Experts say more research is needed to confirm the findings, however.

Prostate cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer and the second cause of cancer mortality in men in the United States. The investigation will be of interest to many, as in the US one out of every six men is affected by this disease in their lifetime. Read more

Washington's Diet Can Make You Fat and Sick

Steven Malanga covers the perils of following the federal government's dietary guidelines. Following the government’s nutritional advice can make you fat and sick.
... Under Farley and Mayor Michael Bloomberg, New York’s health department has been notoriously aggressive in pursuing such “lifestyle-oriented” campaigns (see the sidebar below). But America’s public-health officials have long been eager to issue nutrition advice ungrounded in science, and nowhere has this practice been more troubling than in the federal government’s dietary guidelines, first issued by a congressional committee in 1977 and updated every five years since 1980 by the United States Department of Agriculture.
