Watch what you eat




There’s little hard evidence that a diet rich in tomatoes and the tomato antioxidant lycopene can ward off cancer said Padma Shri and Dr B C Roy National Awardee Dr KK Aggarwal, President Heart Care Foundation of India. Reporting in the issue of the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, FDA experts lay out in great detail the evidence that tomato consumption is not linked to any reduction risk of tumors of the prostate, ovary, stomach and
pancreas. People who manage to reduce their waistlines may also lower their risk for diabetes and heart disease.

A French study published in Diabetes Care has shown that men and women
whose waistlines expanded by 3 inches or more over nine years were at increased risk of developing metabolic syndrome. In contrast, women who shed just an inch or more from their midsections had a lower risk of developing metabolic syndrome than women whose waistlines stayed the same. However, people can be normal weight based on BMI yet have a large waist, and these individuals are at risk of metabolic syndrome. Too many older people are being prescribed too many medicines or the wrong drugs. As per The Lancet, inappropriate drug use among older patients includes being prescribed drugs they don’t need, being under-prescribed medications they do need or being given inappropriate drugs. Older patients are at high-risk for having drug interactions.
