Coffee, For the Health of It

Cassie Rowe, MS, RD, LD/N

Early results of a new study show that people who consume coffee are less depressed than people who drink sugar-sweetened beverages. How’s that for incentive to drink your morning cup of Joe?

“Normal Weight”, Is it Healthier?

Nope! At least, that’s what new research published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) says. When researchers compared 91 studies with results from 2.8 million people they found that the overall risk of death was LOWER for most adults who are overweight and some adults who are obese than for adults at a normal weight. Surprised? I wouldn’t blame you, given that the mainstream message for the last several years preaches that having a “normal” weight (Body Mass Index, or BMI, of 18.5-<25) will keep you healthy.
