Can Walnuts Prevent Alzheimer’s? Can beer make you beautiful? Revolutionizing Fast Food.

A Japanese Brewery is taking beer to the next level. The company, Suntary, just released a collagen-infused beer that claims to make the drinker more beautiful, and it's called "Precious"! Available for now just in Hokkaido, Japan, "Precious" contains 5 percent alcohol and 2 grams of collagen. Drinkable collagen was a trend back in 2013 but promptly dismissed as 'absurd'. Maybe this beer will make a difference! 
Fast food doesn't have to be junk! Two California Chefs  Daniel Patterson of Coi in San Francisco and L.A.'s Kogi BBQ founder Roy Choi, have teamed up to create a fast food chain called Loco'l that will serve  affordable, delicious and healthy food in lower income areas. Menu items will range between 99 cents and $8, and the first post is on track to open in LA in the Fall.
Diet or exercise?What matters more? In a editorial in the British Journal of Sports Medicine,  experts debate whether exercise is the key to weight loss. Their analyses?  You just can't outrun a bad diet! Their primary point is that exercise alone doesn’t equal weight loss. Exercise has a number of excellent health effects, but if you're not also restricting calories, weight loss is not one of them. According to the authors, “Regular physical activity reduces the risk of developing cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, dementia and some cancers by at least 30%. However, physical activity does not promote weight loss.” 
 If you like Walnuts, keep eating! According to a new study; the nuts may delay the onset and slow the progression or even prevent Alzheimer’s disease. The research, which was published in the "Journal of Alzheimer's Disease" found that mice who were fed a walnut-enriched diet showed significant improvement in learning skills, memory, reducing anxiety, and motor development. Why? Scientists think it might be the antioxidants or the  alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) that  helped make the difference.
