In recent news, which I was thrilled to hear about, California has become the first U.S. state to ban four potentially harmful food additives. I hope the rest of the United States follows California’s lead on this.
Although Alzheimer’s is most common among people over the age of 65, the Alzheimer’s Association reports that Alzehimer’s starts to develop 20 years or more before memory loss and other symptoms appear. Just because you may be young does not mean that you can afford to not be proactive about preventing this devastating neurodegenerative disease that is progressive and currently has no cure.
Menopause is not usually a fun topic for many women. And menopausal weight gain? Even worse! I want to, however, flip the script and celebrate menopause.
Chemical Chickens? You May Want to Put Store-Bought Rotisserie Chickens on Naughty Processed Foods List
We’ve all done it. You’re in the grocery store, filling your cart with fresh fruits and vegetables and raw grass-fed meat with every intention to go home and cook a nice healthy meal from scratch and then you smell it – the rotisserie chicken.
Be an informed consumer and learn why California is trying to ban these five food chemicals that are already banned in Europe.
People really need to know what they are eating when they consume fast food. To give you some perspective: A Quarter Pounder with Cheese is 510 calories, 26 grams of fat and a whopping 1190 mg of sodium. An order of large fries is 500 calories, 25 grams of fat and 350 mg of sodium. A large Coke is 310 calories and 86 grams of sugar
We have previously discussed the issue known as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). It is normal for the liver to have some fat, but if more than 5-10 percent of the liver’s weight is fat, then it is considered to be a fatty liver. To put it simply, NAFLD is a fatty liver usually caused by bad foods (such as nutrient-void, processed foods) and occurs in people who drink little to no alcohol.
Recently, consumers speculated that the popular $1.50 hot dog and soda combo would increase in price due to inflation. It makes sense considering that a few months ago the price of Costco food court’s chicken bake increased from $2.99 to $3.99 “and its 20-ounce soda rose by 10 cents to 69 cents,” according to an CNBC report from July. Shoppers, however, can “rest assured” that the hot dog and soda combo will not go up a single penny.
I’m proactive as I can be about doing everything in my power to prevent diseases such as cancer. One cancer in particular that I am especially mindful is colorectal cancer, and here are a few reasons why:
The tagline of the popular candy Skittles is “Taste the rainbow.” Now it may be more appropriate to say “Taste the titanium dioxide.” And this does not make for good publicity.
America is in such a salt crisis that I think it’s probably about time we use technological innovations to reduce our salt intake.
We all know that consuming too much sugar is not good for us. For example, you probably realize that eating a lot of sugar increases the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Despite this, it’s hard for many of us to reduce the amount of sugar from our daily diets. It tastes good, delivers a jolt of energy, is readily available in so many foods and is very addicting (some doctors say just as addicting as drugs).
