Can Starbucks Do For Tea What It Has Done For Coffee?

Can Starbucks Do For Tea What It Has Done For Coffee? | Healthy Recipes and Tips for Healthy Living | Scoop.it

1 November 2013, NPR, Margot Adler -- "The company recently bought the Teavana chain and has opened its first tea bar in New York City.

 

Starbucks, which revolutionized the coffee industry, is now taking on tea. It has opened its first tea bar, and it's creating mixed tea beverages, some even more complex and customized than the coffee beverages we all know.

 

This first store, on Madison Avenue in Manhattan, has minimalist decor: gray soft seats, charcoals, chestnut browns. Teavana teas line one wall. Beakers filled with colored liquids greet you at the entrance.

 

The cococaramel sea salt tea latte is delicious, but at 350 calories it's not an everyday drink. Cliff Burrows, regional group president of Starbucks and Teavana, says tea isn't new for Starbucks. "Our original logo from 1971 was coffee, tea and spice," he says. "But tea has always been secondary to the coffee business that we have grown around the world." ..."

Researchers Compare Exercise, Drugs as Cardiovascular Treatments | News | The Harvard Crimson

Researchers Compare Exercise, Drugs as Cardiovascular Treatments | News | The Harvard Crimson | Healthy Recipes and Tips for Healthy Living | Scoop.it

Structured exercise programs may be as effective, or even more useful, than medication to treat cardiovascular conditions. The authors evaluated and synthesized the results of 305 previous studies to compare the benefits of drug and exercise regimens on disease outcomes.  

After identifying four conditions for which exercise has been studied as a preventive technique—coronary heart disease, stroke, heart failure, and type-2 diabetes—Naci and Ioannidis compared the efficacy of drugs used to treat these conditions to previously-reported effects of exercise.

 They found that structured physical activity was more effective than drug use in the treatment and prevention of strokes, and equally effective in the secondary prevention of coronary heart disease and diabetes.  Diuretic drugs were more successful than exercise, however, in treating heart failure.

“[Our study] will trigger debate, which is really important,” said Naci. “In cases where we have evidence of exercise, exercise seems to do really well in comparison to drugs, but there are still a lot of instances where we don’t know how exercise fares against drugs.”

Edible Austrian Pavilion for 2015 Milan Expo by penda & Alex Daxböck

Edible Austrian Pavilion for 2015 Milan Expo by penda & Alex Daxböck | Healthy Recipes and Tips for Healthy Living | Scoop.it

The Austrian Pavilion by Chris Precht of penda and Alex Daxböck won first runner-up in an international design competition for the Expo 2015 in Milan. Inspired by the strong presence of organic and locally grown foods in Austria, Precht and Daxböck took a creatively literal and communal approach to the 2015 Expo's universal theme "Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life."


Visitors are the true designers of the pavilion as they plant seeds of fruits, vegetables, or herbs in the gaps of its timber exterior during the summer months of the Expo. Once the crops are fully grown, they'll be harvested and cooked into traditional Austrian dishes in the pavilion's restaurant. In essence, visitors get to eat their design.

The explanation is, according to the article, that the FDA amendments act does not require registration of trials that were completed prior to Year End 2007.  So by definition, the study is restricted to a subset of the clinicaltrials.gov database in which for most trials there is no requirement to report.

Sugary Drinks and Rheumatoid Arthritis Linked?

Sugary Drinks and Rheumatoid Arthritis Linked? | Healthy Recipes and Tips for Healthy Living | Scoop.it

1 November 2013, WebMed, Kathleen Doheny -- "Women who drink one or more sugar-sweetened sodas a day might raise their risk of getting rheumatoid arthritis, according to a new study that links RA risk to the sugary habit. The study does not prove cause and effect.


Other studies have linked sugary drinks to higher risks of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease, among other health problems.

The new study is believed to be the first to look at sugary beverages and RA. It did not include diet sodas.

 

About 1.3 million Americans have RA, a chronic and potentially disabling disease that causes pain, stiffness, and swelling in the joints, and limits how well they work.

 

''We found an association only for sugar-sweetened beverages," says Yang Hu, a researcher at Harvard School of Public Health who conducted the study. Hu presented the findings this week at the American College of Rheumatology annual meeting. ...

 

The National Institutes of Health funded the study. These findings were presented at a medical conference. They should be considered preliminary, as they have not yet undergone the "peer review" process, in which outside experts scrutinize the data prior to publication in a medical journal.  ..."

Alzheimer’s disease is characterized by formation of a “plaque” made of inflammation-inducing proteins called beta-amyloid, which also form wiry tangles.

 It remains uncertain whether amyloid plaque and tangles cause or result from the still-mysterious process that leads to Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Drugs and nutrients that inhibit inflammation, oxidation, and formation of amyloid plaque and tangles also reduce AD symptoms.
