Magnesium is 'secret key' to good bone health
Think about improving the health of your bones, and calcium and vitamin D are the obvious choices that come to mind—but magnesium is just as important, a new study has found.
Older people who have high levels of magnesium in their blood don't seem to suffer from fractures, while the reverse is true for those with low levels of the mineral, and they are most likely to suffer a hip fracture.
Having higher levels of magnesium reduces the risk of a fracture by 44 per cent, say researchers from the Universities of Bristol and Eastern Finland, who tracked the bone health of 2,245 middle-aged men for 20 years. The 22 men who had the highest levels of the mineral didn't suffer any fractures during the length of the study.
Relying on the food we eat to raise magnesium levels may not be enough for some people, such as the elderly, those with a bowel disorder, and others taking medication that depletes natural stores of the mineral in the body; for them, taking daily magnesium supplements may be important, say the researchers. However, having low levels of magnesium in the blood doesn't have any symptoms—until there's a fracture.
The discovery is important, and could have a big impact on public health costs as fractures are so common in the elderly, and most also seem to suffer from low magnesium levels.

How Sugar Really Affects Your Cholesterol (WebMD)If you’re like most people, you probably think it’s high-cholesterol foods like eggs or shrimp that are the worst for your cholesterol levels. But that’s not really the case.Because it’s not actually the cholesterol in food that’s the problem. Most of the cholesterol that circulates inside our bodies is made inside our bodies, and not absorbed from the diet. So, it’s not about avoiding foods that naturally contain cholesterol, it’s about avoiding foods that prompt our bodies to create cholesterol.

The most powerful driver of cholesterol production?
Believe it or not, it’s sugar!
When I say sugar, I mean added sugars and simple carbohydrates that can be rapidly turned into sugar within our bodies. Think not only sweets (like cakes and cookies, candies and other desserts), but other foods containing or made from refined grains – like white rice, breads, bagels and pasta.
