Researchers at Harvard Medical School said that a diet high in red meat may be shortening life expectancy. The study suggests that red meat increased the risk of death from cancer and heart problems in its 120,000 participants. The Harvard researchers said substituting red meat with fish, chicken and nuts lowered the risks. The team analyzed data from 37,698 men between 1986 and 2008, and 83,644 women between 1980 and 2008. They said that adding an extra portion of unprocessed red...

A new study from Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) researchers has found that red meat consumption is associated with an increased risk of total, cardiovascular, and cancer mortality. The results also showed that substituting other healthy protein sources, such as fish, poultry, nuts, and legumes, was associated with a lower risk of mortality. "Our study adds more evidence to the health risks of eating high amounts of red meat, which has been associated with type 2 diabetes, coronary...

Defects in a protein that functions as a dietary fat sensor may be a cause of obesity and liver disease, according to a study published in the journal Nature, led by researchers at Imperial College London. The findings highlight a promising target for new drugs to treat obesity and metabolic disorders. The protein GPR120 is found on the surface of cells in the gut, liver and fat tissue and allows cells to detect and respond to unsaturated fatty acids from the diet, especially the omega-3...
