Abstract

Welcome to Public Health Moment from the University of Minnesota. Too much meat, fried foods, and diet soda can increase your risk of developing metabolic syndrome, a condition that can lead to heart disease and diabetes. Dairy products, on the other hand, appear to reduce the risk of developing metabolic syndrome. That’s according to a University of Minnesota study involving ninety-five hundred people. The study was co-auathored by Pamela Lutsey. <Clip: “The metabolic syndrome is a conglomerate of …hypertension or elevated glucose or diabetes.”> Although there’s no clear answer why diet soda increases risk, Lutsey said that it could be that people who drink diet soda splurge on other foods. What’s the take-home message? Eat a balanced diet. <clip: “These findings support the recommendations…servings of low-fat dairy.”>With another Public Health Moment, I’m John Finnegan.
