Butter ISN'T bad for you after all: Major study says 80s advice on dairy fats was flawed

Butter ISN'T bad for you after all: Major study says 80s advice on dairy fats was flawed | nutrition | Scoop.it

Guidelines that told millions of people to avoid butter and full-fat milk should never have been introduced, say experts.

 

The startling assertion challenges advice that has been followed by the medical profession for 30 years.

 

The experts say the advice from 1983, aimed at reducing deaths from heart disease, lacked any solid trial evidence to back it up.

How to Naturally Cleanse Your Body [Infographic]

How to Naturally Cleanse Your Body [Infographic] | nutrition | Scoop.it
Our bodies become toxic for many reasons.  Conventionally grown produce (pesticides), packaged and processed foods (preservatives), cosmetics, personal hygiene and household cleaning products (industrial chemicals) are good examples of our daily exposure to a whole host of toxins.  We eat, drink, breathe in and absorb toxins through our skin all the time - in our modern society, it is virtually impossible to avoid environmental toxins.

Exposure to environmental toxins has been linked to an overproduction of unchecked free radicals which, in turn, is implicated in premature ageing, weight gain and obesity, and various degenerative diseases like cancer, diabetes, arthritis and heart disease.

7 Things You Didn't Know About Stevia

7 Things You Didn't Know About Stevia | nutrition | Scoop.it

As you probably know from the very particular way you take your coffee, not all sweeteners are created equal. The market is booming with sugar substitutes: From saccharin-sweetened Sweet'N Low to aspartame-sweetened Equal, there are plenty of ways to make your cup of joe a bit less bitter. For fewer calories, many choose these sugar alternatives and put up with an artificial flavor or a funky aftertaste.

It's no wonder Americans have grown accustomed to these various sweetening options: More than 78 million U.S. adults are obese, and sugar-dense foods and beverages may be a major contributing factor. We're in search of a sweet but healthy solution.

Stevia, an FDA-approved sweetener, attempts to be the answer."
