  • Of all drivers killed in U.S. automotive accidents in 2017, 18% occurred on a freeway, which is actually lower than expected. In fact, there are more drivers killed in intersections (20%) than on freeways
  • The primary conditions that lead to road fatalities are: alcohol, speeding and distraction leading to a loss of control or contact with another vehicle. Avoid these risk factors to improve your chances of not becoming a statistic on the road

How to Raise or Lower Your Dementia Risk Through Diet

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • A high-fat, moderate-protein, low net-carb ketogenic diet is crucial for preventing degeneration that can lead to Alzheimer’s. High-carb diets have been shown to increase your risk of dementia by 89% while high-fat diets lower it by 44%
  • Other research highlights the importance of eating a diet rich in flavonols — antioxidants found in fruits, vegetables and tea. Those who got the highest amounts of flavonols had a 48% lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s than those getting the lowest amounts
  • Drinking tea three times or more per week also lowers your risk of cardiovascular disease and all-cause mortality. A 50-year-old habitual tea drinker would develop heart disease and/or have a stroke 1.41 years later than someone who drinks it less frequently, and live 1.26 years longer
  • Diets high in trans fats, refined sugar, grains and processed vegetable oils, as well as insufficient cholesterol, raise your risk of dementia
  • Diets high in trans fats can raise your risk of dementia by 52% to 74%. The biggest dietary culprits include pastries, margarine, candy, caramels, croissants, nondairy creamers, ice cream and rice cakes

Did Your Collagen Supplement Come From a CAFO

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Many nonorganic collagen supplements have been found to contain contaminants associated with factory farmed animals, but even organic products have their quality concerns, specifically those made from bovine (cow) hides
  • Bovine hide-based collagen supplements are made from castoffs from the tannery (leather) industry that have undergone harsh chemical processing. Due to this, even organic collagen from hides may be of questionable quality in terms of their “organic” status
  • An ideal way to supply your body with much-needed collagen is to make homemade broth by boiling down chicken feet or beef bones. The gelatin that forms on top as it cools is your richest source of collagen
  • Collagen can help counteract dull, wrinkled, sagging skin and dry, brittle hair and nails, all of which are signs of aging that result from a loss of collagen
  • Other benefits of collagen include improved sleep, stronger bones, reduced joint pain and stiffness, and improved muscle building, wound healing, connective tissue repair, gut health, digestion, blood pressure and glucose tolerance
