Stress in women may erase benefits of a healthful diet

The Los Angeles Times (9/20, Healy) reports in “Science Now” that stress in women may “erase the benefits of a healthful diet,” researchers found. Specifically, the 58-woman study revealed that “suffering a day of stresses…erased the difference between women who got healthy fats and those who got fats more commonly linked to heart disease.” The findings were published Sept. 20 in Molecular Psychiatry.
