So, without much commentary here are three things I wanted to get recorded:
- A potential sugar fix for tumours - more on the stuff I had up yesterday about treating cancer with a ketogenic diet
- Vitamins 'may shorten your life' - here is another study (well a review of studies) that is pointing out the potential dangers of taking antioxidant supplements. We have touched on this before - e.g. antioxidants do more harm than good and Vitamin E supplements to be discouraged. I wonder what this will do for the sales of Snapple the new "Antioxidant Water"???
- Read more on this: Antioxidant users don't live longer, analysis of studies concludes - The vitamin industry has long touted antioxidants as a way to improve health by filling in gaps in diet, but a new review of studies found no evidence that the nutrition supplements extend life. Worse, the review authors said that some antioxidants could increase risk for death.
- And finally....Effect of Dietary Fat on Serum and Intramyocellular Lipids and Running Performance - The results suggest that reducing IMCL via 3-d consumption of a LFAT (low fat) diet does not impair running performance lasting a little over 2 h (compared with 3-d consumption of a MFAT ( medium fat) diet plus 1-d glycogen normalization), but that even short-term consumption of a LFAT (low fat) diet may unfavourably alter serum lipids, even in healthy, endurance-trained runners. That is actually fairly damning for the low fat / healthy diet crew - a low fat diet messes up you lipid profile! Pass the butter, I'm going for a run. (and that may even protect me from injury!)
