A new study from Harvard shows that a low-glycemic diet may be better for losing weight than a low-fat diet. I am currently researching the glycemic index because of a family history of diabetes. Another study suggests that milk promotes weight gain. (Huh! We mothers never knew that!) On the nightmare Orwellian front, a 12-year-old with cancer has been taken from her parents because they object to radiation treatment for her. (Hat tip to Glenn Beck.) And in international news, Russian health officials have debunked the pre-marital “safe-[s-x]” myth and are promoting abstinence in Moscow.
