Scientists Fix Errors in Controversial Paper About Saturated Fats – Nuts

Nuts are Really Good for Health
Nuts are Really Good for Health

Going nuts. Critics have panned a paper that questions whether unsaturated fats, common in nuts, are healthier than saturated ones.

When a paper published on 17 March questioned whether fats from fish or vegetable oils are healthier than those in meat or butter, it quickly made headlines around the world; after all, the study seemed to debunk a cornerstone of many dietary guidelines. But a new version of the publication had to be posted shortly after it appeared on the website of the Annals of Internal Medicine to correct several errors. And although the study’s first author stands by the conclusions, a number of scientists are criticizing the paper and even calling on the authors to retract it.

“They have done a huge amount of damage,” says Walter Willett, chair of the nutrition department at the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston. “I think a retraction with similar press promotion should be considered.”

Health officials have long argued that so-called saturated fatty acids, which are found in butter, meat, chocolate, and cheese, increase the risk of heart disease, and that people should instead eat more unsaturated fatty acids, the type that dominates in fish, nuts, or vegetable oils.

In the new study, a meta-analysis, scientists from Europe and the United States pooled 72 individual studies to gauge how different fats influence the risk of a heart attack or other cardiac events, such as angina. These included trials in which participants were randomly assigned to different diets, as well as observational studies in which participants’ intake of fatty acids was determined by asking them about their diet or by measuring the fatty acids circulating in the bloodstream.

When the researchers compared people with the highest and the lowest intake of saturated fats, they found no clear difference between the risk of heart disease or other cardiac events. Similarly, they found no significant difference between those consuming high or low amounts of the supposedly healthy unsaturated fats. “Current evidence does not clearly support guidelines that encourage high consumption of polyunsaturated fatty acids and low consumption of total saturated fats,” the authors concluded.

But even before the paper was published, other scientists began pointing out errors, says first author Rajiv Chowdhury, an epidemiologist at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom. For instance, the authors took one study on omega-3 fats, one type of unsaturated fats, to show a slightly negative effect while, in fact, it had shown a strong positive effect. The correction means that the meta-analysis now says people who report eating lots of this particular fat have significantly less heart disease; previously, it said there was no significant effect.

Critics also pointed out two important studies on omega-6 fatty acids that the authors had missed. The errors “demonstrate shoddy research and make one wonder whether there are more that haven’t been detected,” writes Jim Mann, a researcher at the University of Otago, Dunedin, in New Zealand, writes in an e-mail. “If I had been the referee I would have recommended rejection.”

Mann and others say the paper has other problems, too. For instance, it does not address what people who reduced their intake of saturated fats consumed instead. A 2009 review concluded that replacing saturated fats with carbohydrates had no benefit, while replacing them with polyunsaturated fats reduced the risk of heart disease. Several scientists say that should have been mentioned in the new paper.

Chowdhury says the paper’s conclusions are valid, however, even after the corrections. Randomized clinical trials are the “hardest” kind of evidence, he says, and they don’t show a significant effect of saturated or unsaturated fats. But even one of the paper’s authors, Dariush Mozaffarian, of the Harvard School of Public Health, admits that he is not happy with the key conclusion that the evidence does not support a benefit from polyunsaturated fats. “Personally, I think the results suggest that fish and vegetable oils should be encouraged,” he says. But the paper was written by a group of authors, he points out. “And science isn’t a dictatorship.”

Another study author, Emanuele Di Angelantonio of the University of Cambridge, says the main problem is that the paper was “wrongly interpreted by the media.” “We are not saying the guidelines are wrong and people can eat as much saturated fat as they want. We are saying that there is no strong support for the guidelines and we need more good trials.”

Willett says correcting the paper isn’t enough. “It is good that they fixed it for the record, but it has caused massive confusion and the public hasn’t heard about the correction.” The paper should be withdrawn, he argues.

The controversy should serve as a warning about meta-analyses, Willett adds. Such studies compile the data from many individual studies to get a clearer result. “It looks like a sweeping summary of all the data, so it gets a lot of attention,” Willett says. “But these days meta-analyses are often done by people who are not familiar with a field, who don’t have the primary data or don’t make the effort to get it.” And while drug trials are often very similar in design, making it easy to combine their results, nutritional studies vary widely in the way they are set up. “Often the strengths and weaknesses of individual studies get lost,” Willett says. “It’s dangerous.”

The monastery contained a number of rooms for the students in addition to a large pool for washings. There are 28 such rooms. The monastery consisted of a second floor with another 28 rooms. Stairs of stone to the upper floor are still preserved. Statues of Buddha are present in front of some of the rooms.Each room had a window for supply of fresh air and as a source of some light and a niche to hold the lamp of the student. The windows are small at the outer end of the wall and become enlarged at the inner end to keep wild animals out. The rooms were plastered and decorated with painting. The outer wall of the monastery is well preserved, which is very smooth and straight.The monastery included a kitchen. A stone for grinding spices for the food is well preserved as well as two stone mills that were used to grind different types of grains. A hole in one of the brickstones of the kitchen wall was used for placing large spoons.

WEIGHT LOSS with BEANS

Beans

Beans , part of the legume family, are an ancient food that has been cultivated all over the earth for thousands of years. This versatile nutritional powerhouse is often relegated to the back of the pantry, as many consider beans the “poor man’s meat”.

The general thought among people has been that bean s are not necessary anymore, as they are getting their daily protein requirements from animal products.

What these people did not know is that there are many chronic ailments associated with high consumption of meat, including heart disease, some types of cancer, and diabetes.

The reason for this is that meat, especially red meat, though high in protein is also high in saturated fat. Saturated fat has been linked to higher cholesterol, including raised levels of LDLs (the bad cholesterol).

Bean s provide a great alternative to meat, as they are a low-fat source of protein.

For example, one cup of lentils provides 17 grams of protein with only 0.75 grams of fat. In fact, the American Cancer Society recommended in their 1996 dietary guidelines that Americans should “choose beans as an alternative to meat.”

Include Bean s in Daily Diet to Reduce Abdominal FAT. It helps your body in keeping the intake of saturated fats at a healthy level. Beans help to flatten your belly not only due to its various other healthy compounds including soluble as well as insoluble fiber.

Due to their low glycemic index, get digested at a slower pace keeping you fuller for a longer time, thus saving you from hunger pangs too.

Bean s are good for diabetics and heart disease too.

Weight Loss Flaxseed Oil

The health benefits of flaxseed oil include its ability to protect the body from cancer, prevent premature aging, boost the immune system, improve heart health by decreasing cholesterol, regulate digestion, reduce inflammation and gout, regulate hormones in post-menopausal women, lowers blood pressure, prevents various gastrointestinal diseases, and also positively affects eye health.

Introduction to Flaxseed Oil

Flaxseed oil, which is also known as linseed oil in much of the world, has been known to humans for a surprisingly long time. Flax, which is scientifically known as Linum usitatissimum, has many uses and has been a part of various cultures around the world for thousands of years. It is cultivated around the world, although originally, it most likely came from the Mediterranean region. Now, the world’s largest producers of flaxseed oil, which is the concentrated vegetable oil that is commonly obtained from flax, are Canada, Russia, France, and Argentina. Obviously, it is a very versatile plant, since it grows in such diverse climates, but it is also extremely useful. For thousands of years, it was used not only as a key ingredient in linen, but also as a very beneficial and easily accessible food source.

Now, flaxseed oil is one of the most common alternatives for traditional vegetable oil, partly because it has the most impressive list of health benefits attributed to it. It can be used in the exact same way as any other vegetable-based oil, but the flavor is particularly pleasant and unobtrusive, it cooks evenly, keeps the body healthy, and is relatively simple to extract. While linen used to be the major area where you would encounter flax, the nutritional and dietary market around the globe is starting to see a marked increase in interest. Let’s take a look at some of these intriguing health benefits of flaxseed oil!

Health Benefits of Flaxseed Oil

Cholesterol Levels: Out of all the vegetable oils on the market, flaxseed oil actually has the highest content of omega-3s, which is very important. While both forms of cholesterol are necessary in the body, omega-3 is considered the “good” form. Omega-3 fatty acid helps to scrape off the bad form of cholesterol (LDL) and helps to increase the healthy balance of cholesterol in your body. This means that you don’t have as much plaque buildup on the walls of your arteries and blood vessels, thereby reducing blood pressure, lowering your chances of developing atherosclerosis, and effectively preventing heart attacks and strokes. In other words, protect your heart with flaxseed oil!

Cancer Prevention: One of the other important elements of flaxseed oil is its high antioxidant content. Flaxseed oil is rich in plant sterols, also known as phytosterols. These act as very powerful antioxidants, which means that they can help prevent the damage that free radicals do to our healthy cells in various parts of the body, including turning them into cancerous cells. Furthermore, three of the lignans found in flaxseed oil have a direct impact on the hormonal balance in our body. That means that hormone-related cancers are far less likely to occur, since our bodies endocrine system is running smoothly.

Digestive Health: The high fiber content of flaxseed means that the digestive system is regulated. Fiber helps to bulk up the stool and move it through the digestive tract, thereby preventing constipation, as well as diarrhea, since it absorbs watery stool. Furthermore, the lignans are able to help reduce your chances of colon cancer! Keeping enough fiber in your diet is important for cholesterol benefits as well. There isn’t much fiber in oil, but the seeds themselves are full of it!

Eye Health: Some of the hormones in flaxseed influence the amount of fluid in your eyes, which can be a very annoying condition. Dry eyes can be prevented with consistent use of flaxseed oil in the diet. It can also prevent more serious forms of this condition, such as Sjogren’s syndrome.

Inflammation: The anti-inflammatory capacity of flaxseed oil means that it can prevent various forms of inflammation in the body, including the natural aches and pains in the joints and muscles, as well as more serious conditions like arthritis and even gout! Flaxseed oil is a natural anti-inflammation agent, so make sure to include it in the diet if you suffer from these types of conditions.

Crohn’s Disease: Although we have already covered some of the gastrointestinal benefits of flaxseed oil,Crohn’s disease is a terrible condition that afflicts people all around the world. Flaxseed oil research has shown a positive relationship between the inflammation of the colon and intestinal tract with consumption of this oil.

Post-Menopausal Women: After women go through menopause, their bodies change in dramatic ways, particularly in the balance of their hormones, such as estrogen. The lignans in flaxseed oil, secoisolariciresinol, matairecinol, and pinoresinol, have a dramatic effect on the hormonal balance, thereby helping many post-menopausal women function better and struggle less with the fluctuations of estrogen in their bodies.

A Final Word of Caution: Although most specialists regard flaxseed as a generally healthy oil, there is still a great deal of research being done. It is shown to increase bleeding because it is a vasodilator, including wound healing speed after surgery. Furthermore, it is unclear as to whether women should consume flaxseed oil during pregnancy or breast-feeding, since the hormonal contributions of flaxseed oil can be dramatic and the effects have not been adequately researched.
