TIME (1/27, Oaklander) reports that in a study published Jan. 27 in the BMJ, “researchers found that one little-understood group of compounds – flavonoids – might be partly responsible for the weight-loss power of produce.”

        Newsweek (1/27, Firger) reports that the study involved “124,086 men and women over age 24.” In the study, scientists found that “fruits and vegetables rich in anthocyanins, flavonols, flavonoid polymers, and flavan-3-ols” appear to be “highly beneficial for weight control.”

        HealthDay (1/27, Doheny) reports that “apples, pears, berries and peppers were on the list of flavonoid-rich produce that seemed to make a difference, the researchers found.”
