A closer look at new diet standards

Most people want to eat food that is considered healthy, but new studies and recommendations are making it more difficult and confusing.

For example, the FDA recently recognized the importance of the so-called fish oil to overall health, when it issued draft guidelines suggesting pregnant and lactating women and young children consume 2-3 servings of fatty fish per week. Are women and children the only ones who benefit from the consumption of DHA, or “fish oils?” And, with concerns about mercury and contamination, are fatty fish truly safe to eat? Enter: Dr. Michael Roizen.

The celebrity doctor explained what people need to know now about the latest diet regulations concerning: fats, sodium, carbs and sugar.
