Exercise: Can there be too much of a good thing?
Forbes
In recent years researchers have developed a more complicated view of the relationship of health and exercise. Although observational studies have consistently shown that some physical activity is better than none, studies that have drilled deeper into the data suggest that these health benefits may be curtailed in people who exercise very frequently or very intensely. Now two new studies from Europe, published in the journal Heart, offer new support for these observations.

Diabetes prevented with just 2 minutes of exercise
Medical Xpress
Type 2 diabetes can be prevented by doing just two sessions of high-intensity training a week, new research published in the journal Biology has shown. In the paper, the authors from Abertay University state that high-intensity training not only reduces the risk of disease, but is also just as effective at doing so as the exercise guidelines currently recommended by the U.K. government.

Excessive exercise could put heart disease patients at risk
TIME
If you have a heart disease or condition, high-intensity exercise for long stretches could actually increase your chance of a massive heart attack or stroke, recent studies found. In the first of two studies published in Heart, a journal for cardiology health professionals, German researchers spent a decade studying the frequency and intensity of weekly exercise in 1,000 people in their 60s with stable coronary artery heart disease, almost half of whom were active two to four times a week.

Going paleo: There's no such thing as a 'natural diet' for humans
Fox News
The Paleo diet, also well known as the Caveman or Stone Age diet, has gained revolutionary popularity among physicians, health experts and the general public, since it joined the scene in 2002. Dr. Loren Cordain is the author of the book, "The Paleo Diet," that initiated the movement that has earned a cult-like following. Cordain proclaims the diet to be the healthiest in the world, but his claims are met with opposition from many leading experts.

Diet and blood pressure: It's not all about the salt
USA Today
Too much salt is bad. Eating a daily banana — or sweet potato — might be a good idea. But when it comes to controlling your blood pressure through diet, it's best to think bigger, experts say. Your whole diet, not any miracle food or salt reduction alone, is the key to getting those numbers down and potentially lowering your risk for stroke, heart attack, kidney damage and other diseases.

Clues to how Mediterranean diet protects the heart
HealthDay News via WebMD
Study after study has shown that a Mediterranean-style diet rich in fish, nuts, vegetables and fruits seems to lower your risk of heart trouble. Now, a new mouse study hints at why. "When unsaturated fatty acids, found in olive, nuts and fish oils, are eaten together with a source of nitrate or nitrite, found in vegetables such as beetroot and those with green leaves, they form nitro fatty acids in the body," explained lead researcher Philip Eaton, a professor of cardiovascular biochemistry at Kings College London.

Why you should stop taking vitamins
Yahoo Shine
If you look at all the vitamin studies done on groups of more than a thousand people in the last few decades, many of them have shown that taking vitamin supplements is correlated with an increased risk of diseases such as cancer and produces little benefit to health. Some of these results were statistically significant, but some were not.

Study: Vitamin B12 shot does not boost energy, metabolism
News-Medical.net
Feeling sluggish? Gaining weight? What you need is a shot in the arm, claim advertisers for trendy vitamin B12 injections. Don't let marketers needle you. "If medical testing confirms that an individual has a vitamin B12 deficiency, a vitamin B12 supplement will help. But if a B12 deficiency has not been identified by a physician or primary care doctor, there is no need to waste energy and money on B12 shots," says Ashley Barrient, clinical dietitian, Loyola Center for Metabolic Surgery & Bariatric Care.
