When Vitamins Backfire - Public Health - PLOS Blogs Network | Food | Scoop.it
Bad news for athletes this week: two studies showed that vitamins may hurt, not help, performance. Are vitamins more of a marketing ploy than a real help?
Erica Walsh's insight:

New studies show that vitamins may actually and hurt and not help when it comes to athletes and exercising. Just because they are hurtful however, this does not mean that they aren't useful and important when it comes to treating deficiencies.

New York Magazine
Psychologists at the University of Bourgogne in France say that smelling fruit smells can encourage healthy-diet decisions.

Although this may sound crazy, scientists actually say that smelling fruit will make you skinnier. Sniffing fruit actually encourages healthier eating decisions. If you smell fruit, you are more likely to choose a fruit dessert option over a chocolate dessert option. This was actually tested by scientists who say that the smell of fruit actually registers in the brain and ultimately influences healthier food choices.

I think this is really interesting that just by sniffing fruit it can encourage you to make healthier eating choices. Even though it sounds a little bit weird to me if it works I think it's a good idea!

I can't believe that sniffing fruit can make people skinnier. It is definitely a good way to encourage others to make healthier food decisions.
Tanner Danek's comment, April 11, 2014 12:36 AM
I would feel like only consuming the fruit would do justice, it's pretty cool that sniffing it is enough. I'm gonna have to try this sometime!

Nobody realizes the true effect that eating fruits and vegetables has on your health. The more fruits and vegetables that you eat, the less likely you are to die at any given age. Although both fruits and vegetables decrease your risk of death, vegetables actually decrease this risk more than fruits. It is not just any type of fruits and vegetables, however. Frozen and canned fruits and vegetables actually increase your risk of death.
