Lowfat diets; Benefits of increasing lean protein; CVD in Women - Women’s Ischemia Syndrome Evaluation; Statin drugs & AMD
Does eating a low-fat, high carbohydrate diet increase the risk of obesity? Whatâ??s being hailed as a â??landmarkâ?? study in the Journal of the American Medical Association apparently offers the answer.

More women die of cardiovascular disease (CVD) than the next five causes of death combined, including all cancers. Weâ??ll talk about WISE â??

And how the statin drugs used to lower cholesterol may slightly increase the risk of age-related macular degeneration according to the January issue from the Archives of Ophthalmology.
