Healthy living

Ready to eat—and live—more healthfully? We sort through the evidence on what to eat, what to avoid, and what can help prevent diseases like type 2 diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and more.

What to eat

The healthiest diets don’t just pile on the plants (like fruits and vegetables). They also limit ultra-processed foods, red and processed meats, salt, unhealthy fats, added sugars, and refined carbs.

Staying healthy

We cover the latest on how to prevent disease, avoid food poisoning, keep yourself and the planet healthy, maintain a healthy weight, and more.
