first_img Read Full Story Eating more whole grains may reduce the risk of premature death, according to a new meta-analysis by researchers from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. The study found that people who ate the most whole grains (70 grams/day, about 4 servings), compared with those who ate little or no whole grains, had a lower risk of dying during the study period.“These findings further support current dietary guidelines that recommend at least 3 daily servings (or 48 grams) of whole grains to improve long-term health and prevent premature death,” said Qi Sun, assistant professor in the Department of Nutrition and senior author of the study.The study was published online June 13, 2016 in Circulation.Previous studies have found that whole grains may reduce risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), diabetes, and poor gut health, among other conditions.The meta-analysis combined results from 12 published studies, in addition to unpublished results from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) III and NHANES 1999-2004. The studies were conducted in the United States, the United Kingdom, or in Scandinavian countries between 1970 and 2010. Health information from 786,076 participants was included in the analysis.The results showed that people who ate 70 grams/day of whole grains, compared with those who ate little or no whole grains, had a 22% lower risk of total mortality, a 23% lower risk of CVD mortality, and a 20% lower risk of cancer mortality.last_img read more

first_img As an example, Al-Zwahri mentioned the attack in Boston, saying, “it reminds Americans that they are not being confronted by individuals, organizations or groups, but by a Ummah (Muslim community) that is revealed in Jihad or the holy war against U.S. interests.” By Dialogo September 16, 2013 Al-Qaeda leader Ayman Al-Zwahri, has called on his followers to perpetrate “an economic disruption to the United States” and conduct small-scale attacks on U.S. soil. He added that Muslims should take advantage of every opportunity to execute “a bigger blow” to the United States, even if it takes years to prepare. In addition, he said that Muslims should leave the U.S. dollar as a currency and adopt the currency of countries that have not attacked Muslims. Declarations coincided with a Taliban attack on September 13, against the U.S. consulate in Herat city, Afghanistan, leaving at least two Afghans dead. No victims were found among U.S. personnel at the consulate. Attacks performed “here and there” by “one or several brothers” will help to undermine “the weak side of the United States,” the economy, which has started a phase of stagnation “due to military and security spending,” Zwahri said in an audio statement. last_img read more

Learning the ins-and-outs of this new job from the confines of my home – while also dealing with two children under the age of 4 – has been, well… interesting. I look forward to working on the NAFCU Compliance Blog in the years to come, hopefully one day from an actual office with other grownups.I’ve decided to focus my first blog post on some questions that credit unions may have regarding various exceptions to the periodic statement requirements in Regulation Z. Enjoy!What is a Periodic Statement?As I’m sure you all know, Regulation Z requires credit unions to provide periodic statements for certain credit accounts. These are the account statements for a member’s credit card, HELOC, mortgage, or other credit accounts, except for non-home secured closed-end loans, such as car loans, since Regulation Z does not require statements for these accounts. Regulation Z lays out specific requirements for periodic statements, including what information must be contained within them and timing requirements for when they must be provided to the member. For an in-depth discussion of the various periodic statement requirements for different types of credit, see this previous post in the Compliance Blogand check out this post for more information on the timing requirements.last_img read more
