Unhealthy diets linked to more than 400,000 cardiovascular deaths. Eating a diet lacking in healthy foods and/or high in unhealthy foods was linked to more than 400,000 deaths from heart and blood vessel diseases in 2015, according to an analysis presented at the American Heart Association's Epidemiology and Prevention / Lifestyle and Cardiometabolic Health 2017 Scientific Sessions.

Unhealthy diets linked to more than 400,000 cardiovascular deaths

Eating more heart healthy foods, and less foods with high amounts of salt and trans fats, could save tens of thousands of lives in the United States each year, researchers said. "Low intake of healthy foods such as nuts, vegetables, whole grains and fruits combined with higher intake of unhealthy dietary components, such as salt and trans-fat, is a major contributor to deaths from cardiovascular disease in the UnitedStates," said Ashkan Afshin, M.D., M.P.H., M.Sc., Sc.D., lead study author and acting assistant professor of global health at the University of Washington's Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation in Seattle. Low gluten diets linked to higher risk of type 2 diabetes. Eating more gluten may be associated with a lower risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, according to research presented at the American Heart Association's Epidemiology and Prevention / Lifestyle and Cardiometabolic Health 2017 Scientific Sessions.

Low gluten diets linked to higher risk of type 2 diabetes

Gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye and barley, gives bread and other baked goods elasticity during the baking process and a chewy texture in finished products. A small percentage of the population cannot tolerate gluten due to Celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, but gluten-free diets have become popular for people without these conditions, even though there is lack of evidence that reducing gluten consumption provides long-term health benefits.

"We wanted to determine if gluten consumption will affect health in people with no apparent medical reasons to avoid gluten," said Geng Zong, Ph.D., a research fellow in the Department of Nutrition at Harvard University's T.H. Chan School of Public Health in Boston, Massachusetts. Traffic-light labels could reduce population intakes of calories, total fat, saturated fat, and sodium. Abstract Traffic-light labelling has been proposed as a public health intervention to improve the dietary intakes of consumers.

Children’s drink choices influenced by personalized labels, study. Researchers from the National University of Ireland Galway’s School of Psychology set out to determine whether personalizing both healthy and unhealthy bottled beverages influences children’s beverage choices and whether those choices are affected by self-esteem, body mass index, and parental factors.

Personalization and self-esteem levels affect drink choice To determine this, 404 children were randomly assigned to one of the three drinking label conditions (Prime Healthy, Prime Unhealthy, and Control). Prenatal BPA exposure may lead to weight issues later in life: Mice study. The new study found mice born to mothers exposed to bisphenol A (BPA) were less responsive to the satiety hormone leptin.

Prenatal BPA exposure may lead to weight issues later in life: Mice study

Its effect on her offspring suggests that BPA may exert its effects by redefining the developmental programming of certain brain regions. “Our findings show that bisphenol A can promote obesity in mice by altering the hypothalamic circuits in the brain that regulate feeding behaviour and energy balance," said the study's senior author, Dr Alfonso Abizaid, associate professor at the Department of Neuroscience at Carleton University, Canada. "Low level prenatal exposure to BPA delays a surge of leptin after birth that allows mice to develop the proper response to the hormone. BPA exposure permanently alters the neurobiology in the affected mice, making them prone to obesity as adults. " Developmental window.

‘Strong evidence’ supports obesity and cancer link: British Medical Journal. Whilst studies into the link between obesity and cancer are rife, the quality of analysis has often been weak, say a team of researchers at Imperial College London.

‘Strong evidence’ supports obesity and cancer link: British Medical Journal

In order to provide finer detail of those at most risk, an umbrella evaluation was carried out on 204 studies into adiposity and its link with 36 forms of cancer. Of those evaluated, researchers found that strong evidence supports the link with only 11 types of cancer. These were: oesophageal, multiple myeloma (cancer of white blood cells), cancers of the gastric cardia (stomach), colon, rectum, biliary tract system (bile duct), pancreas, breast, endometrium (uterus), ovary, and kidney.

Statistical analysis was carried out to reveal discrepancies and evidence of bias between studies. The report concluded that besides the connections they found to be strong, ‘Other associations could be genuine but uncertainty remains’, and called for further research. Tackling childhood obesity - Think Tank. Sugar, salt, and fat taxes could save billions in health care costs. Australia could save AUD $3.4 billion (USD $2.3 billion) in healthcare costs over the remaining lifetimes of all Australians alive in 2010 by instituting a combination of taxes on unhealthy foods and subsidies on fruits and vegetables, according to a new study published in PLOS Medicine by Linda Cobiac, from the University of Melbourne, Australia and colleagues.

Sugar, salt, and fat taxes could save billions in health care costs

An increasing number of Western countries have implemented or proposed taxes on unhealthy foods and drinks in an attempt to curb rates of dietary-related diseases, however the cost-effectiveness of combining various taxes and subsidies is not well-understood. In the new study, researchers modeled the effect of taxes on saturated fat, salt, sugar, and sugar-sweetened beverages and a subsidy on fruits and vegetables on the Australian population of 22 million alive in 2010.

EU health coalition calls for 6am-11pm ban on junk food advertising. The campaign describes itself as "a key opportunity to free Europe’s young people from health-harmful marketing". It aims to do so by altering the current Audio-Visual Media Services Directive (AVMSD) by heavily restricting the hours in which adverts for unhealthy foods and alcohol can be aired.

This would include all product placement and see foreign broadcasts effectively censored to the same EU standards. The campaign was officially launched today in the European Parliament with an event called ‘AVMSD: What about our kids?’ Led by Romanian MEP Daciana Octavia Sârbu and organised by 10 European health organisations including the European Heart Network, the Eurocare Alcohol Policy Alliance and the European Public Health Alliance, the event featured discussions and debates amongst public health and social experts on the case for extending current limitations .
