Soy for Pain Reduction, The FDA and More Diet Pills, Food Labels and Adzuki Beans

A Canadian Researcher is going to look at soy’s impact on chronic pain.  Apparently, earlier studies showed that increased consumption of soy reduced pain in rats, so a new three year double blind study for humans is starting at McGill University Health Centre.

As a follow-up to our post saying that the FDA would be reviewing Abbott Lab’s Meridia after a European ban on the product, turns out the review panel split on a market removal.

But the FDA did recommend against approving Arena Pharmaceuticals’ lorcaserin because of potential problems with heart disease, tumors. Depression and memory loss.

A new study at Washington State University backs the idea that if you read your food labels, you are more likely to successfully lose weight.

Give adzuki beans a try as a vegetarian alternative to lentils, black or navy beans.  See this article about the bean:
