THURSDAY, March 23, 2017 -- Pediatricians have long suggested that fruit juice may prompt weight gain in children, but a new review finds it harmless when consumed in moderation.
"Based on the current evidence, we didn't find that consuming one serving [of 100-percent fruit juice] a day contributes to weight gain in children," said study author Dr. Brandon Auerbach. He is acting instructor of medicine at the University of Washington, in Seattle.
TUESDAY, March 7, 2017 -- Nearly half of all deaths from heart disease, stroke and diabetes in the United States are associated with diets that skimp on certain foods and nutrients, such as vegetables, and exceed optimal levels of others, like salt, a new study finds.

THURSDAY, Feb. 23, 2017 -- If you want to add years to your life, 10 daily servings of fruits and vegetables may be the best recipe you can follow, a new analysis suggests.
The benefits appear to come through lower rates of heart attack, stroke, cancer and early death. And if everyone found a way to get 10 daily servings of produce, 7.8 million premature deaths would be avoided each year worldwide, the British researchers estimated.
