Julianna Crider's insight:
Time to Rethink the Way We Think About Saturated Fatty Acids, Researchers Say:

"After accounting for other risk factors, measured even-chain SFAs (myristic acid, palmitic acid, and stearic acid) were significantly associated with incident type 2 diabetes (hazard ratio per 1 SD difference, 1.15, 1.26 and 1.06, respectively). In contrast, measured odd-chain SFAs (pentadecanoic acid and heptadecanoic acid) were inversely associated with incident type 2 diabetes (HR per 1 SD difference, 0.79 and 0.67), as were longer-chain SFAs (arachidic acid, behenic acid, tricosanoic acid and lignoceric acid), with HRs ranging from 0.72 to 0.81."

Progress on PHOs and why saturated fat is still bad: Bunge

Progress on PHOs and why saturated fat is still bad: Bunge | Nutrition | Scoop.it
The packaged food industry has removed roughly three-quarters of the 8 billion pounds of partially hydrogenated oils (PHOs) that abounded in the marketplace at the heyday of trans fats in 2004-‘05, though a few problem areas and holdouts remain—particularly in the bakery segment amid concerns about viable, sustainable replacements, says Bunge.

Julianna Crider's insight:

Hmmmmm. I wonder if this is legitimate? Concerning all of the vitamin supplementation, I wonder if some psychiatric disorders deplete the body of certain vitamins quickly causing deficiencies? I'm not exactly sure of the mechanism of action for this, but I think it's interesting!

Taking vitamins to prevent cancer or heart disease may backfire

Taking vitamins to prevent cancer or heart disease may backfire | Nutrition | Scoop.it
If you are taking vitamin supplements to reduce your risk of heart disease or cancer, a government panel of health experts wants you to know that you’re probably wasting your money. In some cases, those vitamins may actually increase your risk of cancer.
Julianna Crider's insight:

Hmmmm... I just don't think the average diet alone can provide the optimal amount of micronutrients needed daily. It will be interesting to see what experts are saying about vitamins in five years. Also odd: this article completely fails to mention calcium supplementation--something that is very much needed to prevent osteoporosis risk. Hmmm.
