Low Carb Diets Have Been Linked to an Early Death

Low-carbohydrate diets like Keto may be great for losing weight, but they may not be so good for your lifespan, according to a new study published in The Lancet.

Researchers followed 15,400 Americans over a span of 25 years to determine the long-term effects of eating (or not eating) carbohydrates — and found that moderate carb eaters lived up to four years longer than low carb eaters.

What stocks should you buy with the market at a record high?

The dilemma of what stocks to buy is particularly tricky right now.

If you want to own shares of companies, you’ll be getting into a market that began rising more than nine years ago and now sits near an all-time high. The bull market, now 3,453 days old, will be the longest in history by the end of trading on Wednesday. And the Standard & Poor’s 500, the broadest measure of U.S. stocks, hit a record Tuesday for the first time in six months.

Researchers use gut bacteria to turn type A or B blood into universal donors

Bacteria found in the human gut could save countless lives by transforming type A or type B blood into type O.

At a meeting of the American Chemical Society today, Steve Withers of the University of British Colombia presented new research suggesting enzymes found in gut bacteria could effectively strip antigens from the two most common blood types. If successful, the discovery would essentially make most types of blood accessible to those who need it, regardless of their blood type.

3 Stocks to Add to Your Social Security Income

As designed, Social Security expects to replace around 40% of a typical retiree’s income, even less than that for those that happen to earn a higher-than-average income. As if that weren’t enough, Social Security’s trust funds are on track to empty by 2034, which would slash average benefits by almost 25% if nothing is done to head off the collapse. If living on somewhere between 30% and 40% of your current income in retirement doesn’t sound all that appealing to you, you need to invest to make up the gap.
