 Article Title :: Osteoporosis - Prevent It Before It Starts
When it comes to preventing osteoporosis, in addition to a healthy diet and supplementing with calcium, vitamins and other minerals - you also need to limit the risk factors by ensuring that you don’t lose excess calcium.Preventing Osteoporosis - High Risk Factors: Carbonated soft drinks – these contain a large amount of phosphorous and research has shown a link between too much phosphorous and calcium loss. Teenagers in particular are at extreme risk. Carbonation also neutralizes stomach acid making it harder for you to absorb calcium.Excessive phosphorous in your diet will create poor bone structure.

 Article Title :: What Are The Real Facts About Flax?
Are there side effects of flax seed oil? Yes. But a better question to ask is - what are the real facts about flax?Ever since flax seed oil hit the nutritional supplement market in the mid 80s, it’s been promoted as a cure-all for dozens of diseases and conditions. But, in reality, most of those “health claims” are unsubstantiated and, at best, shaky.Flax is, without a doubt, an abundant plant source of omega 3 alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). But promoters, in an effort to hype their product, have long ignored or downplayed the negative aspects and have created multiple misconceptions.For example, flax doesn’t naturally contain sufficient EPA and DHA, the two comp  (read full article)

 Article Title :: The Foods That Cause Gout
Foods that cause gout, the “disease of kings,” were historically available only to the wealthy. Today, however, nearly everyone can overindulge in rich, unhealthy food and alcohol. As a result, some two million Americans are suffering from gout – just like King Henry VIII.Gout’s joint inflammation is caused by the crystallization of excessive uric acid in the blood (hyperuricemia). Uric acid is a waste product formed by the breakdown of purines, natural substances found mainly in fatty meats, particularly red meat, and in some fish, grain and vegetable foods.The latest, most exhaustive and definitive research of 47,150 men over a twelve year period, published in The   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Hidden Obstacles In Your Food
In the 18th century, Scottish poet Robert Burns wrote, “The best laid plans of mice and men often go astray.” And that’s certainly true when it come to our plans to live a long, happy, healthy life.On the road to good health, most people go astray because of just three basic ingredients in their food - salt, fat and sugar. And often these additives are hidden, so you don’t even know they’re there.Salt or sodium compounds are found in just about all processed foods and show up in many different forms, such as sodium chloride (table salt), sodium nitrate, sodium bicarbonate and monosodium glutamate (msg). One cup of canned soup alone could contain over 1,000 mgs of s  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Honey Coated Hype
Is sugar healthy? Let’s explore the question.A hundred years ago, the average sugar consumption was five pounds a year and heart disease, cancer and diabetes were practically unknown. Today, Americans eat 158 pounds of sugar a year and heart disease, cancer and diabetes are our number one killers. Is there any correlation?Although the powerful sugar industry would have you think otherwise, sugar’s not just bad for your teeth, it’s a killer. High glycemic sugars cause an unhealthy insulin surge and replace nutritious foods in your diet. They’re bad for your looks, bad for the way you feel and just plain bad for you - Period! Unhealthy sweets have been shown to lead to  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Junk Food Adds Up
Non-nutritious junk food has taken over the American diet – much to everyone’s detriment. Desserts, for example, at a shocking average 12.3% of calories, are now the most common single food in the national diet.Sweets, soft drinks and alcohol currently make up nearly twenty five percent of the total calories consumed by adults in this country. When you add salty snacks and fruit flavored drinks, it adds up to almost one third of all calories. And that’s not even counting stuff like pizza, burgers, hot dogs, French fries, high fat dairy products and white bread and pasta.Dr. Gladys Block, professor of Epidemiology and Public Health Nutrition at the University of Califor  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Why Choose Organic Foods?
Had any yummy pesticides lately? Don’t you imagine future generations might someday look back on our civilization and wonder why we sprayed poison on our food and then ate it?Demand for organic, pesticide-free food is increasing rapidly – and for good reason! Pesticides are designed to kill living organisms and are therefore a threat to human health. The National Cancer Institute states that 30% of insecticides, 60% of herbicides and 90% of fungicides are known to cause cancer. And that’s just one negative side effect. These chemicals can also lead to damage of both the nervous and hormonal systems.Children are even more vulnerable than adults to the dangers of agricul  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Is Pasta Good For You?
Yes! IF it’s whole grain pasta cooked al dente (firm, not soft).Whole grain al dente pasta causes a lower glycemic response than soft cooked refined white pasta. Lower glycemic foods are more slowly absorbed into the bloodstream and don’t create a quick blood sugar rise. This slower absorption helps protect against insulin resistance (a precursor of type 2 diabetes) and metabolic syndrome (a predictor of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease).In one recent study, published in Diabetes Care, people who ate more whole grains had 37% less prevalence of metabolic syndrome than those who ate processed refined grains. They also had lower levels of protective HDL cholester  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Salty Wisdom About High Blood Pressure
Salt is essential to human life. But, like most good things, too much can be a killer. The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute blame excess sodium (salt) as a major reason for the high blood pressure that causes 400 daily American deaths from heart attacks and stroke. These deaths are equivalent to a jet airliner crashing every single day.The National Institutes of Health recommends less than 1.5 grams of sodium a day. The average American gets about 4 grams and consuming up to 15 grams a day is not uncommon. Limiting daily sodium to less than 1.5 grams can lower systolic blood pressure (the upper number) by as much as 5 to 10 points, which significantly reduces a person’s r  (read full article)
