Worker Bees’ Daily Bites:

Have we got a great round-up for you today, Apples! There’s so much good stuff we can’t stand it.

Let’s get to it:

Diabetes: Better Off with Lifestyle Changes

Despite a spate of new drug therapies for type 2, evidence still conclusively shows [7] that lifestyle changes are the most effective method for preventing and treating diabetes. What’s really alarming is the fact that diabetes has doubled in the last decade [8]! Drugs can treat the condition, but the underlying problems aren’t going away until we make serious lifestyle changes. Exercise, elimination of sugars and processed foods from the diet, and reducing stress are all vital factors in staving this epidemic.

“Best Oxymoron Award” Goes to…

The FDA wants to put suicide warnings on antidepressants [9]. These drugs are risky, but especially for children and teens. Let’s put this in perspective. Can you imagine if the FDA needed to put obesity warnings on weight loss medications? Or cancer warnings on nicotine patches? Or heart attack warnings on statins? Doesn’t anyone think it’s odd that we even need a suicide warning, of all things, on drugs that make you…anti-depressed?

We Stand Corrected

Sara here. We’ve been recommending regular tuna over albacore based on the misunderstanding that regular tuna was higher in Omega-3’s. We were totally wrong on that, and we appreciate Slashfood [10] for letting us know. Whew.

Get ‘em while they’re hot [11].

Smart Shoppers: Check Out the Organic Report Card

Hey, this is a great site [12] that rates all the organic farms (marks are given in cows, not A’s, B’s and C’s). We stumbled onto it after finding out that Horizon may not be as cud-chewer friendly [13] as we believed (either that, or a small news outfit is trying to get some press). Fitsugar [13] holds the keys to the castle on this debate, so mosey on over to check it out.

Was this a useful post, or what? (Please don’t say “or what”. But do share your thoughts in the forum [14].) Until tomorrow, Apples!
