If you love to drizzle a bit of olive oil on your salad, a new study suggests a side benefit to that tasty fat: a lower risk of heart disease.

And, if you replace a teaspoon of butter, margarine or ma...

Grab-and-go foods are an easy option for busy lives, but if you opt for ultra-processed foods a lot, you may pick up something you don't want -- heart disease.

Having a cheeseburger with that CBD-infused product? A new study suggests that fatty foods might boost the body's absorption of cannabidiol (CBD).

In this study, University of Minnesota researchers examine...

Dairy foods have been getting a lot of attention from researchers in recent years, notably from studies done both jointly and separately by scientists at Harvard and Tufts universities. They looked at the relationship between full-fat dairy and the risks for heart disease and diabetes.

A 3,000-participant study found that people who included dairy fat in their diet had a lower risk of...

The keto diet has plenty of weight-loss devotees who swear by the high fat, low-carb plan. Now, new research from India suggests it may benefit people with type 2 diabetes.

The study team found that people following a ketogenic diet for three months saw significant improvement in their blood sugar control.

"A five to 10% carbohydrate diet over three months led to a rem...

Take these steps for a healthy breakfast sandwich remix, great taste included.

When you must buy a ready-made sandwich, skip the bacon...

Doctors may be as confused about what dietary advice to pass on to their patients as the patients themselves -- even when it comes to protecting against heart disease through diet, according to U.S., British and Italian reports.

Part of the problem is the continuing lack of nutrition education offered in medical schools. Another is the lack of time doctors have to spend with patients...

Experts have redefined the role of fat in healthy eating, but before you grab a chunk of cheese or another pat of butter, understand the differences between the various types of fat in your diet.

For decades, guidelines recommended limiting total dietary fat to no more than 30% of daily calories, and then to a range of 20% to 35% of calories. The thinking was this would lo...

Americans are eating as much processed meat as they did two decades ago, and have not increased the amount of fish they consume.

The good news comes from...

It's hard to keep up with the findings from studies on the health effects of saturated fat -- you know, the fat typically found in animal foods, from red meat to whole milk. But one thing's certain.

For every study that finds saturated fats unhealthy, there's another showing that its role in heart disease and other chronic conditions is still open for discussion.

For example...

Oils are one of the most widely used ingredients in cooking and are healthy alternatives to butter and margarine.

All cooking oils, including olive, canola and peanut oil, contain 14 grams of total fat per tablespoon, and roughly 120 calories. So measure amounts carefully because even though some fat is essential for good health and these are excellent choices, they're still high in ...

"Our study shows strong indications th...

These modern foods, high in both fat and carbohydrates, produce a higher "reward" signal than foods containing either mostly fat or mostly carbs, the researchers report.

As a result, these foods hijack your body's signals that govern food consu...

Eating a nutritionally balanced high-quality diet may lower a cancer patient's risk of dying by as much as 65 percent, new research suggests.

The finding that total diet, rather than specific nutritional components, can affect a cancer patient's prognosis "was particularly surprising to us," said the study's lead author, Ashish Deshmukh.

Total diet, he explained, was one tha...
