leedobbins's insight:

Eating healthy seems like it's expensive, but it can save money on your grocery bill now and in doctors bills later on in life. The key is to eat what you buy and not waste food.

It's not only healthier to eat food from your own garden, gardening is also good for your health too.  Growing your own food can save you a lot of money and increase your healt too.

 

Arun Shrivastava's curator insight, April 24, 2013 10:23 AM

This is so true and yet people ignore this simple solution to our health problems. We are so fortunate in India that we have hundreds of varieties of grains, vegetables, fruits, nuts, roots, stems, barks, leaves...and we all use some of these in our everyday meals. And our lands can produce heaps and heaps of food and yet over 50% of us are malnourished and facing serious health problems.

 

Our kids have being vaccinated when there is no need for vaccination, no need for expensive modern medical care and for the rich medical insurance. We lived a very healthy life 50 years ago and if we take some hard decisions we can easily go back to the basics of good food, nutrious foods and good health.

 

Wanna make a start? Dump canola oil, the so-called "healthy oil"...if at all you wish to use oil, use local mustard oil, Ghee, local white butter, coconut oil, sesame seed oil....so many. From the time Lever Bros introduced DALDA to today when worst criminal food multinational corporations have entered India, they have created a health disaster.

Does that include natural sugars that you find in fruit and honey?
leedobbins's comment, April 5, 2013 9:59 AM
Fruit and honey is good, but use sparingly. Fruit has fiber that will help slow down the digestion so you don't get that sugar spike…it helps to level out your blood sugar. And, of course, fruit and honey have vitamins and minerals which table sugar and processed sugar foods lack.
Danielle Schaeffer's comment, April 5, 2013 10:08 AM

Magnesium's Importance Far Greater Than Previously Imagined

Magnesium's Importance Far Greater Than Previously Imagined | Healing Foods | Scoop.it
GreenMedInfo December 5th 2012 By: Sayer Ji, Founder Calcium deficiency is a common nutritional concern, but how many folks consider the vital importance of magnesium in human health and disease?

 

New research published in the journal BMC Bioinformatics indicates that magnesium's role in human health and disease is far more significant and complicated than previously imagined.

 

While it is well known that all living things require magnesium, and that it is found in over 300 enzymes in the human body, including those enzymes utilizing or synthesizing ATP (the molecular unit of currency for energy transfer), the new study titled, "3,751 magnesium binding sites have been detected on human proteins," indicates that a deficiency of magnesium may profoundly affect a far wider range of biological structures than previously understood.

 

The proteome, or entire set of proteins expressed by the human genome, contains well over 100,000 distinct protein structures, despite the fact that there are believed to be only 20,300 protein-coding genes in the human genome.

 

The discovery of the "magneseome," as its being called, adds additional complexity to the picture, indicating that the presence or absence of adequate levels of this basic mineral may epigenetically alter the expression and behavior of the proteins in our body, thereby altering the course of both health and disease.

Most people know that calciul deficiency causes seriously affects bone density but how many actually know that calcium absorption requires the presence of magnesium in the ratio of two to one [Calcium:Magnesium]

 

This is very important article for us in India because none of the calcium supplements contains magnesium in the appropriate ratio and other supplements too are highly deficient in magnesium.

Biochemist who cured his stage 4 prostate cancer with Cannabis Oil explains how it works [with videos]

Biochemist who cured his stage 4 prostate cancer with Cannabis Oil explains how it works [with videos] | Healing Foods | Scoop.it

Biochemist Dennis Hill graduated from the University of Houston and did his Graduate Work at Baylor Medical School. Dennis worked as a Cancer Researcher at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.

 

When Dennis was diagnosed with advanced stage prostate cancer, which had metastasized to other parts of his body, he started researching. Since Dennis has a family history of prostate cancer, and he often witnessed ineffective results while working in cancer research, he felt a new approach was in order.

 

After researching possible alternatives Dennis ran across information about Rick Simpson using cannabis concentrate, which is an extract of the essential oil which is extracted from marijuana and contains cannabinoids. Simpson was using the oil to treat a wide variety of illness, including cancer...
