Published Omega watch: Researchers develop new blood test for measuring levels of critical omega-3 fatty acids (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Researchers have discovered a convenient new way to track levels of omega-3 fatty acids in the bloodstream, making it much easier to access information that is critical to cardiovascular and cognitive health, but which has previously been challenging to gather. While the human body can generate most of the fats it needs, it cannot produce adequate levels of omega-3 fatty acids and must obtain them from dietary sources.

Published New study using human fibroid cells supports use of green tea compound as treatment for uterine fibroids (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
In a pre-clinical, proof-of-concept study, researchers found that epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), a green tea compound with powerful antioxidant properties, could be promising for both treating and preventing uterine fibroids. Results of the study add to growing evidence that EGCG may reduce fibroid cell growth. The study was specifically designed to identify the biochemical mechanisms responsible for EGCG action in fibroid cells.
Published Global diet study challenges advice to limit high-fat dairy foods (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Unprocessed red meat and whole grains can be included or left out of a healthy diet, according to a study conducted in 80 countries across all inhabited continents.

The addition of unprocessed red meat or whole grains had little impact on outcomes.
Published Not eating enough of these six healthy foods is associated with higher cardiovascular disease and deaths globally (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Previous and similar research has focused on Western countries and diets that combined harmful, ultra-processed foods with nutrient-dense foods. This research was global in scope and focused on foods commonly considered to be healthy. Researchers derived a diet score from PHRI's ongoing, large-scale global Prospective Urban and Rural Epidemiological (PURE) study, then replicated that in five independent studies to measure health outcomes in different world regions and in people with and without prior CVD.
