The study results concluded that frequent milk consumption may be associated with reduced osteoarthritis progression in women. Dr. Bing Lu, the lead author and an assistant professor of medicine at Harvard suggested based on the findings of his study: “People with osteoarthritis should increase their milk intake, low-fat or fat-free milk is the best.”
  • A new pill might soon eliminate the flu virus: A new research breakthrough recently published in the journal Immunity suggests a  new and highly effective way to fight the flu and potentially other viral infections. Scientists may have discovered a drug to eliminate the flu virus in mice and this new development could lead to a pill for humans as well. The CDC (U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) estimates that about 49,000 people die from flu-related illnesses every year. In 2009 alone, up to 575,000 people died from swine flu  or H1N1, while emerging viral strains constantly threaten to spread to humans and cause even deadlier pandemics.
