Fall cover crops for livestock grazing may improve soil health, protect environment
Turning cattle out to graze in harvested fields was once a common practice. It's something that researchers would like to see used again--and improved by planting cover crops, such as such as oats, sorghum, turnips, radishes or millet. These have the potential to improve the soil health and utilize any remaining nutrients, thus preventing runoff that pollutes lakes and streams. (Source: ScienceDaily Headlines)

What The World’s Healthiest Diets Have In Common
To research his 2010 book The 5 Factor World Diet, celebrity trainer and nutritionist Harley Pasternak traveled to the healthiest countries around the world to learn more about what made their meals extra nourishing.

Fixing A Food Desert Isn’t As Easy As Putting A Grocery Store On Wheels
For many Native American communities, access to a full-service grocery store can be extremely limited, causing many residents to make less healthy food choices and contributing to diet-related health issues. As part of an effort to fix that for a half-dozen low-income communities between Santa Fe and Albuquerque in New Mexico, a 50-foot, full-service grocery store-on-wheels began pulling up twice a week to a number of plazas in the area beginning in 2011, offering better food options to area residents. Without it, residents were forced to drive long distances to buy fresh groceries. That was until early this year, when the...

Restricting Calories Can Make You Crazy (No, Really)
The objective was to make the men lose 25 percent of their body weight, and then re-feed them back to normal. They also were required to walk for 22 miles per week. And let's talk about the crazy stuff that went down: They felt exhausted, irritable, impatient, and easily annoyed. Men reported flipping out at each other for tiny things that wouldn't otherwise bother them -- their friends' idiosyncrasies or waiting too long in a line. They become obsessed with food. Several men started collecting cookbooks and recipes; one man, Carlyle Frederick owned nearly 100 by the time the experiment was over. Another man was so temp...

Feed Your Inner Caveman
As an anti-aging specialist, I’ve spent a lot of time studying and treating osteoporosis among the many “older” patients who come to my wellness clinic.

I want them to learn about the natural ways they can keep their skeletons strong – at any age! Osteoporosis is a “silent” disease, because it gives no clue that you might have it until a slight bump or fall produces a n...

Chicken Soup Really Is 'Jewish Penicillin' For Your Cold. Mom Was Right.
If you were brought up by a Jewish mother, chances are you have been prescribed a hot bowl of chicken soup at a time you felt under the weather. Dr. Mom may have insisted it was a type of "Jewish penicillin," that it would lessen your sniffles and perk you right up. She was, in some regard, correct. In a 2000 study published in the journal of the American College of Chest Physicians, researchers found that chicken soup could help reduce upper-respiratory inflammation, which leads to those annoying qualities of a cold, like a stuffy head and incessant sneezing. Many doctors believe that colds are caused by viral ...

Are Carbs Evil? Part Two
The nature of carbs may be one of the most contentious points in nutrition today. Carbs have been cited as the culprit behind certain cancers, heart disease, diabetes and premature brain aging. Due to such problems, some experts have encouraged complete avoidance of carbs. Yet, as bad as carbs can be, I showed in the last installment of this article, that too few carbs in the diet can lead to symptoms like insomnia and poor exercise performance. In short, carbs are not all bad. If some carbs are bad, but you can't ditch them altogether, what are you supposed to do? It's easy with the three good carb rules: Eat good carbs...

In an Urban Food Desert, Farmers Markets Make a Mobile Oasis
The USDA late last year awarded a $61,160 grant to the Five Points Community Farm Market for their idea to establish a mobile farmers market in Ballentine, as well as three other food-challenged neighborhoods in Sherwood Forest, Ingleside and Lamberts Point. This year, the organization began delivering produce to those communities in an effort to improve residents’ access to fresh foods. Organizers arrive weekly in a cargo van, set up a tent in parking lots and open spaces, then stock crates with greens, turnips and potatoes — all available for purchase with cash, credit or food stamps.
