Could breakfast be bad for our health? “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day,” say the experts. Instead Terence Kealey believes breakfast is a “dangerous meal” that could actually be as harmful to our health as smoking cigarettes.
In a nutshell, diabetes is a lifelong condition that makes someone’s blood sugar levels become too high. And while you can live a relatively normal life with it, it’s much better to try and prevent it. There are two main types of diabetes – one and two. But only Type 2, which 90% of UK adults with diabetes have, can actually be prevented.
Talk about a conflict of interest: A new study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine reveals that at least 96 health organizations received funding from either one or both of the country’s largest soda companies between 2011 and 2015.
Waking up before sunrise isn’t usually something people do voluntarily. The bad news is that waking up before the sun does could also be harming our health, as scientists from Melbourne, Australia have found that it causes ‘social jet lag’.
Unfortunately for those of us with busy work schedules (or heavy weekend plans), sleeping less than seven hours has been shown to mess with your glucose metabolism. A report by the Royal Society For Public Health found that Brits are just missing out on the seven hour mark and are instead averaging 6.8 hours sleep per night.
“In the past decade, over three dozen studies reported a relationship between self-reported short sleep and disturbed glucose metabolism,” explains the abstract for the study. Looking at 788 middle-aged participants across Europe with an average night’s sleep of 7.3 hours, they found than women showed a decrease in insulin sensitivity, which increased their risk of diabetes when faced with sleep deprivation.

(Image via AP Photo/Luca Bruno) A glass of red wine a day might indeed keep the doctor away—at least that could be the case for those suffering type-2 diabetes, according to a new study. It suggests red wine in moderation helps patients manage cholesterol and improves cardiac health.

The findings, which were presented this weekend at the American Society of Human Genetics’ annual meeting, traced the connection to a genetic variation carried by women with hips that are larger in comparison to the rest of their body. The gene variation is inherited from a woman’s mother and doesn’t appear to have the same effect on men. According to a press release from the American Society of Human Genetics, researchers are currently investigating the discrepancy, but hypothesize that there may be a sex-specific protein that interacts with KLF14 and diminishes its impact on men. While the findings are surprising, Peter LePort, MD, medical director of the Memorial Care Center for Obesity at California’s Orange Coast Memorial Medical Care Center, tells Yahoo Health that he isn’t shocked.
