Best Diets Revealed
The results are in, and the DASH diet appears to be the best overall, according to a U.S. News and World Report, which rates diets annually. U.S. News determined the top 32 diets by surveying a panel of nutrition experts. The list includes best overall diet, easiest to follow, the best for diabetes, weight-loss, and other categories.
The DASH diet, developed by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, won in several categories, but you can take a look at the pros and cons of all 32 and decide for yourself which is right for you.
But speaking of diets….
Paleo Diet Bad for Ancient Teeth
The Paleo diet, which has soared in popularity (but comes in last on the U.S. News best diets list), may not have been so great for paleolithic teeth, according to NPR. New bones found in a cave in Morocco shows that people living between 12,000 and 15,000 years ago had an astonishing number of cavities – nearly 94 percent of the specimens had at least one.
But if you’re currently on the Paleo diet, fear not – experts say that as long as you regularly brush your teeth, you’re fine.
Measles Cases Soar
Last year is shaping up to have been a bad year for measles, according to CNN. Between January 1 and August 24, there were 159 cases – putting 2013 on pace to be far worse than 2011, when 222 cases were reported. The worst year in the last two decades was in 1996, when more than 500 cases were reported.
Measles cases are usually seen in children who have not been vaccinated because their parents decide they don't want their kids to have the shot. However, experts caution that doing so can be deadly.
"This is very bad. This is horrible," said Buddy Creech, MD, a pediatric infectious disease expert at Vanderbilt University, to CNN. "The complications of measles are not to be toyed with, and they're not altogether rare."
Mind-Controlled Suit to Open World Cup
A paralyzed teenager wearing an exoskeleton will open up this year’s World Cup, according to ABC News. The kicker, who will be chosen from a group of 10 paraplegic teens, will maneuver the motorized suit using only their thoughts. This is thanks to new technology developed by the Walk Again Project, led by the Duke University Center for Neuroengineering, that the suit’s designer says will one day make wheelchairs obsolete.
“The World Cup kick will show the world we are getting very close to this kind of milestone,” said Miguel Nicolelis, MD, the suit’s lead designer, on ABC. “Most people don’t believe it is possible, but if all goes well, this will prove to them that we are closer than they realized.”
