    by Neal Barnard, MD, FACC | December 3, 2018

    Meat taxes global health. So why not have a meat tax? New research shows that a tax on red and processed meat – such as hot dogs, bacon and deli meat – could save millions of lives and billions of dollars in health care costs.

    Researchers from the University of Oxford estimate that in 2020, global meat consumption will result in $285 billion in health care costs and 2.4 million deaths from heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and colorectal cancer. But a global meat tax could help prevent 220,000 deaths and decrease health care costs by $41 billion. It would also help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Read more

    by Paula Gallagher | November 28, 2018

    This curry cauliflower soup is easy to whip up and is the perfect meal after a day of shoveling snow or playing in it!

    Cauliflower is a versatile vegetable that can be eaten raw, steamed, baked or pureed. Also, it delivers a wallop of nutrients and antioxidants responsible for its oft-touted health properties. A study in the journal Stroke found that for every 25g increase in the daily intake of white vegetables and fruits (about 1/4 cup of cauliflower), the risk of suffering a stroke dropped by 9%.

  • New Studies: Fish Oil Reduces Heart Attacks

    by Paula Gallagher | November 26, 2018

    Two studies published in the New England Journal of Medicine have found that healthy people who eat fish with omega-3s or take fish oil supplements suffer fewer heart attacks than people who do not have omega-3s in their diet.

    One study called The Vitamin D and Omega-3 Trial (VITAL) found that healthy people who took a fish oil supplement suffered fewer heart attacks, particularly if they were African American or did not regularly eat fish. The fish oil supplements reduced risk of heart attack by 28% over a 5-year follow-up period. Read more
