  1. Mediterranean diet slashes death risk in half

    Cut your DEATH RISK by 50 percent!

    A prescription to CHEAT DEATH?

    I know that sounds downright impossible, too crazy to even imagine. Even if such a thing existed, you’d need a pile of money – and good connections – to get your hands on it.

    It’s not so crazy after all.

    I’m here today to tell you that there IS just such a prescription.

    It doesn’t come in a pill. It’s not an injection. And you certainly can’t spray it on.

    But new research reveals one basic step every senior can take – right NOW – to cut your risk of death.

    We’re not talking about cutting your risk of a deadly condition or two.

    This “miracle” can cut your risk of death from EVERYTHING and add YEARS to your life.

    Best part of all?

    It really won’t cost you much, and there are zero side effects -- except a longer, better life free of disability and disease.

    The key is in something I’ve already urged you to try.

    It’s the back-to-basics diet built on what we were designed to eat from the beginning, all-natural fresh foods including fatty fish, nuts, olives, and many of the other foods you already know and love.

    Yes, it’s the Mediterranean lifestyle you’ve heard so much about.

    There’s no doubting the health benefits of this great diet. But many older folks think it’s too late for them to get results.

    The new study proves that’s absolutely not the case.

    It didn’t focus on younger people. It didn’t even focus on a lifetime of healthy eating.

    It zoomed in on seniors and found that as you age, the benefits of this diet only get bigger.

    The closer you stick to it, the lower your risk of an early death.

    The analysis of more than 12,000 seniors assigned everyone a “score” from a 10-point scale based on how closely they followed the basics of the Mediterranean diet. Then, researchers tracked them for more than eight years.

    The study finds that every single point on that scale will cut your risk of death by 5 percent -- meaning that someone who follows the diet closely enough to score a perfect 9 has a 50 percent lower risk of death than someone on a burger-and-fries diet with a score of 0.

    It might be tough to achieve a perfect 9 (although you can certainly try). But even bumping yourself up from a 2 or 3 to a 6, 7, or 8 could cut your risk by between 20 and 30 percent.

    And along with keeping you alive, this same healthy diet is proven to prevent heart attack and stroke, control weight, reverse metabolic syndrome, and even protect against dementia.

  2. New diet drug won’t kill you as much as others will

    The ugly TRUTH about that new diet drug

    This is what passes for a big win for Big Pharma these days.

    Take our new drug… it won’t kill you!

    I wish I were kidding.

    Sadly, that’s more or less the latest headline from the world of diet drugs. Sadder still, given how dangerous some of those meds have been, that kinda IS a major victory for them.

    A new study claims that the diet drug lorcaserin (a.k.a. Belviq) – which the media has been calling (not kidding here) the holy grail of diet drugs – doesn’t increase the risk of heart attack, stroke, and death.

    In a study of some 12,000 people given either the drug or a placebo and tracked for three years, there were near-identical rates of those and other serious problems at a hair above 6 percent.

    Phew.

    No doubt, that’s a relief to the industry, which has seen promising weight-loss drugs crumble over serious and sometimes deadly safety issues.

    One drug, Meridia, was pulled from the market over heart attack and stroke risk. But get this: It took the feds 13 YEARS to yank it!

    This drug was available from 1997 to 2010. Patients bought it… and patients suffered.

    And the newer drug was approved back in 2012. The fact that it “only” took six years to figure out whether it’s killing anyone is what passes for progress at the FDA.

    Of course, even if it’s not causing deaths, that doesn’t mean the drug is safe.

    And it’s not.

    It has a whole mess of side effects, including bloody urine, bladder pain, anxiety, dizziness, fatigue, headaches, nausea, and diarrhea. It also has some weird ones, like “cool, pale skin”… “unexpected or excess milk flow from the breasts”… and nightmares.

    Even if you manage to make it through all of that AND stay on the drug, you’ll find that it’s anything BUT a holy grail.

    You don’t take it and watch the pounds melt away. It only works with lifestyle changes.

    When combined with those changes, patients lost 9.2 pounds on average over the course of a year in the new study.

    Patients given a placebo lost three pounds, making the difference a grand total of six pounds.

    “Holy grail?” More like “holy cow!” – how is anyone taking this?

    That difference actually got WORSE over time: After 40 months, the difference between the drug and the placebo was just 4.2 pounds.

    All that time… all that effort… and at up to $290 a month, all that MONEY… for 4.2 pounds!

    I know the idea of a quick-fix pill is tempting.

    But there’s a better, safer, and far more effective way to drop the pounds -- and that's with a back-to-basics approach to eating.

    Replace processed foods, grains, and refined carbs with healthy whole foods – ideally on a grain-free Mediterranean diet – and you’ll lose the weight AND keep it off for good.
