Saturated Fat & Diabetes

A new study published in the journal Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology finds that not all saturated fatty acids have the same impact on risk for type 2 diabetes. The new study, called the EPIC-InterAct Study, was funded by the European Commission to investigate the relationship between nine different types of saturated fatty acids and the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.

According to the National Institute of Deafness and Other Communication Disorders, prolonged exposure to noise levels at 85 decibels and above increases people’s risk for hearing loss.
