Obesity comes with plenty of health risks, but there’s one that’s perhaps not so well known: an increased risk of developing cancer, and especially certain types of cancer like liver cancer.

It is one of the world’s most valuable spices. Patiently collected flower by flower, the deep red stamens of the saffron crocus can fetch up to Pounds 500 per pound, writes Anastasia Stephens.

Yet no one is designated in most hospitals to assist patients who have trouble eating. A total of 11 million meals are thrown out uneaten every year, the report found.
Green tea catechins are able to penetrate eye tissue, which may help protect against glaucoma and other eye diseases, according to Hong Kong researchers.
The dental health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids may include anti-bacterial effects, extending the benefits beyond inflammation, says a new study from the University of Kentucky.
