News

This section of nethealthbook is a collection of news items. It brings you very timely research that will help you understand medical problems better. Links to appropriate pages integrate the articles into the text of nethealthbook.com. One example: a news article finds that higher fiber content in the diet of males reduces prostate cancer risk. This is now part of 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. Close blood sugar control in diabetics reduces this risk. That fact is also mentioned on the page of nethealthbook titled causes of cancer of the pancreas.

Mediterranean diet

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. The average consumer often overlooks this type of data from the medical literature, but it is very relevant to the average consumer.

Over the years information from these practical news stories accumulate and become part of the database of nethealthbook.com.
