    In matchup, low-carb diets outperform low-fat diets

Illustration: Sebastian Stankiewicz, Boston Children’s) Despite the popularity of low-carbohydrate diets, health experts have pushed low-fat diets for the past 50 years, citing saturated fat as the main health risk. As a result, grocery shelves are stocked with low-fat and fat-free foods, many of which are high in processed carbs. Drs.

    Full-Fat Dairy May Actually Be Healthy for Your Heart

A study published in PLOS Medicine found an association between higher intakes of dairy fat and a lower risk of cardiovascular disease. The new findings are at
