Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
10 foods that drive weight gain and loss identified by Harvard
The Atlantic - 6/24/2011.
By Daniel Fromson – In a new report published today in The New England Journal of Medicine, a team of Harvard researchers has revealed the results of a study of 120,877 people showing that small changes in lifestyle behaviors such as physical activity, sleep duration, and TV-watching are strongly correlated with long-term weight gain.
