4 Your Health: Gluten free not so healthy and HIV patients living longer

Posted: Updated:

Tucson- People diagnosed with HIV are living much longer than they were just two decades ago.

British researchers studied over 88,000 HIV positive people who began anti-viral treatment between 1996 and 2010. During this time period, the number of deaths dropped and life expectancy increased by nearly ten years. 

In fact, a 20 year old who began treatment for HIV in 2008 or later may live nearly as long as people in the general population.

Gluten-free foods may not be as healthy as some people think

Scientists looked at the nutritional composition of 654 gluten free products. They found many breads, pasta and flours contained more fat and calories and much less protein than products with gluten. 

Experts say these differences could impact children's growth and increase the risk of obesity.
