Flavanols found in can reduce age related memory decline in healthy older adults from the age of fifty to sixty-nine. That’s what researchers found after giving the group of people 900mg of flavonols every day for three months. If you’re looking to get your fix of flavonols, stick with the darkest types of chocolate – unprocessed and unsweetened. Just watch out for the sugar content – it’s unlikely you will find any pieces of chocolate out there that contain 900mg of flavonols but it doesn’t hurt to make chocolate a part of a balanced real food diet.
It seems like Vitamin D is always in the news. This week, people who have asthma and who are also Vitamin D deficient are twenty-five percent more likely to have an asthma attack.
In case you didn’t know, oils can be very unstable at high temperatures and heat can drastically change the chemical structures, even making them harmful to your body. A study came out comparing olive oil to corn, soybean, and sunflower oil when used for frying. Then they reused the oil ten times – a practice common in many restaurants (albeit probably more than ten times). The study found that olive oil was the most stable oil to fry with. Skip the seed oils.

A study has been in the news this week citing that milk consumption may increase the risk of fractures and overall mortality. The study tracked tens of thousands of women for twenty years and tens of thousands of men for eleven years. The study found that those people who drank three or more glasses of milk every day were at a higher risk of death and having fractures. For those that bought into this study, what the study failed to show was HOW milk can cause death and increase the risk for fractures. Milk just so happened to be one of the things they looked at. However, what that the study also found was that, fermented milk products such as yogurt and cheese was associated with a reduced risk of death and fractures. The study believes that milk may possibly be associated with increased oxidative stress and inflammation.
