DID YOU KNOW that relying on diet pills for weight loss is not an effective strategy? According to a study in Obesity, not only are diet supplements ineffective, they can be dangerous, especially if purchased on the Internet. Of course, the same goes for prescription diet pills, which have consistently shown to be more dangerous than efficacious. There is simply no replacement for implementing positive lifestyle changes that touch every aspect of your daily life. One new discovery among myriad benefits of weight loss is that you become less sensitive to junk food advertising. Food manufacturers don't want you to know that scientifically, relentless advertising for sugary drinks and high-fat junk are more successful in those who are overweight. An independent study from Journal of Consumer Psychology just confirmed this. Don't let Big Food get the best of you!

Lifestyle Lowers Genetic Cancer Risk
In an extremely exciting study published in Medrxiv, researchers found a correlation between positive lifestyle choices and a reduced risk of genetic cancers. Key Takeaway A healthy lifestyle, which includes physical activity, a diet rich in fruit and vegetables, and low consumption of processed meats, alcohol, or tobacco, may offset genetic risks for five cancers. Alternatively, an unhealthy lifestyle can increase overall cancer risk and the risk of eight cancer types. Why This Matters Telling those genetically predisposed to cancer that they have some control over their situation may alleviate distress and help them make positive lifestyle changes. Key Results Unhealthy habits increased the overall risk of cancer 32%. Unhealthy habits increased the risk of eight cancer types: lung cancer, bladder cancer, pancreatic cancer, kidney cancer, pharyngeal cancer, uterine cancer, colorectal cancer, and breast cancer. The authors say their findings also suggest that "a healthy lifestyle is of greater benefit in those with a high genetic susceptibility to colorectal, breast, and pancreatic cancers, and may completely offset genetic risk for lung and bladder cancers.
