Can Fish Oil Help Reading?
Discussion Fats and fatty acids are essential for good human health. Saturated fats have hydrogen pairs linked to each carbon on the carbon backbone. They are solid or semi-solid at room temperature. Common examples are butter, lard, or hardened vegetable shortening. They are linked to higher cholesterol and triglycerides and only a small amount of them are recommended to be consumed in the diet. Unsaturated fats have one or more hydrogen atoms missing from the carbon backbone. They are liquid at room temperature. Monounsaturated fatty acids have one hydrogen pair that is missing from the carbon backbone. They are liq...

NHS targets super-sized chocolate bars in battle against obesity, diabetes and tooth-decay
16 October 2017 Hospitals have been ordered to take super-size chocolate bars and “grab bags” of sugary snacks off of the shelves in the latest step of the NHS plan to fight obesity, diabetes and tooth-decay. NHS England chief executive Simon Stevens has announced a 250 calorie limit on confectionary sold in hospital canteens, stores, vending machines and other outlets. Hospital chiefs will have to ensure that four out of five items purchased on their premises do not bust the limit, which is an eighth of a woman ’s and a tenth of a man’s recommended daily intake, or lose out on funding ring-fenc...

Anti Alzheimer ’ s diet
Despite what the mainstream media is telling you, sugar is not your enemy. Your body evolved to eat sweet foods. In fact, it’s how our ancestors knew a food growing in the wild was safe to eat and healthy. But your body did not evolve to eat starchy, high carbohydrate sugars from bread, pasta, cereal and other grains. Ever since we were told to eat low fat, this has been the bulk of the our diet. The result has been a modern epidemic of obesity and diabetes. At the same time, we face skyrocketing rates of dementia and Alzheimer’s. Big Pharma has been trying for decades to come...

Fried foods? Use THIS oil.
You’ve probably heard some very confusing advice about which cooking oils are best for your health. Almost every time you read an article or watch a health show on TV, someone is recommending some good-for-you grease that’s somehow better, less cancer-causing, more antioxidant-rich, less (or sometimes more) fatty than the last. The problem begins with doctors and nutritionists — and Big Food — who like to classify cooking oils by categories of fat, claiming that one category is “good” and another is “bad.” Don’t listen to them. We already know that mainstream medicine a...

QUIZ: Should You Eat This or That?
For decades, fat has been vilified as the worst part of the American diet. Scientists made their case, the government codified it with nutritional guidelines, and industry launched a fat-free food frenzy that hasn’t abated. But in those 40 years, people got sicker—and fatter. The new science shows fat isn’t the reason, and in fact, the nutrient might deserve even more room on our plates. Overall, the latest science on weight and dieting shows that there’s likely no one-size-fits-all approach and that people can succeed at achieving better health through a wide variety of ways—and foods. Still,...

Study allows establishing a timeline of obesity
(Funda ç ã o de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de S ã o Paulo) In experiments with mice, a Brazilian research group showed that, well before the profile of intestinal bacteria gets altered, a diet rich in saturated fats damages the hypothalamus -- region of the brain responsible for optimizing the organism's absorption of nutrients -- because its cells react to the excess of fat in the bloodstream as if they were fighting pathogens. According to the research, the ensuing process of inflammation and methabolic disbalance can recede through a diet with low levels of saturated fat and simple carbohydr...

Avoid eating just before your bedtime, study recommends
Conclusions Previous research suggests we may be better off consuming more of our calories earlier on in the day, when we have a full, active day ahead of us to use up the energy. It's also been observed that people who consume large calorific meals late in the evening can have a higher body weight. In a sense, the results of this study seem plausible and don't really say anything different from what's already been observed. But as this is a cross-sectional study, it can't really prove very much. The study involved a small, select sample of US university students. Their results can't be applied to everyone, as they have di...

The Guardian view on veganism: high in moral fibre | Editorial
Vegans are often unfairly mocked. They should instead be praisedJeremy Corbyn is “going through the process” of eating more vegan food, he has said – he just has to bring himself to give up the brie, verboten under vegan rules, along with eggs, milk and everything animals produce. Later, as if fearful of a backlash, his spokesperson issued a statement denying he was vegan. But the Labour leader was right to be proud of his efforts. Vegans are often unreasonably mocked as do-gooders and sniped at for making dinner parties awkward for those who don’t like lentils quite so much. This is unfair: the die...

One in 10 men aged 50 'have the heart of a 60-year-old'
"One-tenth of 50-year-old men have a heart age 10 years older than they are," BBC News reports. This is the finding of an analysis of 1.2 million people who used the NHS Heart Age Test. The principle behind the test is that you can "age" your heart through unhealthy behaviour such as smoking and being obese. Underlying conditions like high blood pressure and high cholesterol, which often have no noticeable symptoms, can also age the heart. An obese smoker in their 50s who has high blood pressure and high cholesterol could have the heart of a 60- or 70-year-old. The quick and simple test tells you the...

Results of global fats and carbs study not very relevant for UK
Conclusion The results of the study have been presented in the media as if they overturn all current dietary guidelines. In the UK at least, that is completely misleading. The study results support the UK guidelines, having found that people who get around 50% of their calories from carbohydrates and 35% from fat, as recommended by Public Health England, were likely to live the longest. There are some limitations to the study, not least that observational studies cannot prove cause and effect. For example, the very low fat and high carbohydrate levels of diets found among some participants in the study might simply repres...
