News

This section of nethealthbook is a collection of news items that bring very timely research to the attention of the interested reader. They also are integrated into the text of nethealthbook.com by links to appropriate pages. For instance, if a news article finds that higher fiber content in the diet of males reduces prostate cancer risk, this has been integrated into the prostate cancer chapter under prostate cancer prevention. On the other hand an Australian study found that diabetes is a risk factor for the development of pancreatic cancer and a close blood sugar control in diabetics reduces this risk, this is also mentioned on the page of nethealthbook titled causes of cancer of the pancreas.

Another study about Midwestern firefighters came to the conclusion that a Mediterranean diet benefits US workers. The diet consisted of lots of fruit, vegetables, nuts, fish, olive oil and whole grain. These firefighters had a 35% lower risk of developing metabolic syndrome, which translated into much less heart attacks over the years than a control group on a regular diet. This type of data from the medical literature often gets overlooked, but is very relevant to the average consumer.

Over the years information from these practical news stories will accumulate and will get incorporated into the database of nethealthbook.com.
