ABSTRACT
The article offers news briefs related to health and nutrition. Women with high blood levels of trans fats are at much greater risk for breast cancer than women with low blood levels of the unhealthy fat. Low blood levels of vitamin D could indicate a greater risk of peripheral artery disease (PAD). A high-salt diet upsets calcium balance in postmenopausal women increasing the risk of osteoporosis.
