Esher, Surrey (PressExposure) December 12, 2011 -- "Counting calories may not be enough when it comes to weight control." Says Kirsten Whittaker, Editor of the DHB. "A diet with 15% protein may well work better to help you keep your eating, and your weight, under control according to the findings of a new study."

Many experts think that the protein content of the diet does play a key role in determining how many calories you eat and how hungry you are. This study lends support in the form of solid numbers.

Some intriguing, but preliminary, research on ginger and colon cancer. Supplements of ginger have been shown to lower some indicators of inflammation in the colon according to a new study. This work is an initial step in finding out if the compounds that are naturally a part of ginger root might also prevent cancer of the colon.

Just two chocolate bars a week is all it takes, according to some new research out of Sweden, for a woman to bring down her stroke risk. This latest work builds on earlier findings in men and women, but also provides us with some new information on stroke type in chocolate eaters.
