Discover magazine provides an overview of the meaning and regulation of the "grass-fed beef" label. The article notes that USDA regulation of “grass-fed” labeling is limited, with the third-party American Grassfed Association overseeing a more rigorous inspection process. Cows raised on grass take longer to reach market weight than those fed on grain, passing higher costs onto consumers. Major benefits of grass-fed beef include differences in taste, small changes in nutritional profile, reduced use of antibiotics, and improved soil and ecology health.Read the article What Makes Grass-Fed Beef Different, and Are You Buying the Real Thing?
This 2007 study found increased pancreatic fat is strongly associated with diabetes, independent of overall BMI or waist circumference. These results support the hypothesis that organ-specific fat accumulation, due to its effect on insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance, directly predicts and may play a causal role in the development of metabolic distress.Read MorePancreatic Fat Content and β-Cell Function in Men With and Without Type 2 Diabetes

Patients are ceasing to be "human guinea pigs" and are becoming participants in their own health care. In this chapter from "The Trouble With Medical Journals," Smith discusses the shift toward informed consent and patient participation in medical research and explains why there's still a long way to go.Read MorePatients and Medical Journals: From Objects to Partners
Will focusing on running endurance interfere with your strength numbers? Will prioritizing your back squat slow down your mile time?

Dr. Timothy Noakes reanalyzes the findings from the famous Framingham Heart Study and notes the flaws and biases in lead researchers' conclusions. Rather than supporting Ancel Keys' diet-heart hypothesis, the study demonstrated "the absence of any relationship between diet and blood cholesterol concentrations or CHD risk."Read MoreAncel Keys' Cholesterol Con, Part 5
