Are Some Salts Healthier Than Others?

Are Some Salts Healthier Than Others? | Nutrition Dos and Don'ts | Scoop.it

Sodium is a necessary nutrient, but most people overdo it on salt. The daily recommendation is to limit sodium intake to 2,300 milligrams per day (less if you suffer from high blood pressure). Given our love of the kitchen staple, it’s not surprising that more and more salt choices are appearing on store shelves. Besides standbys like table salt and kosher salt, you may have come across fancier options like pink Hawaiian or fleur de sel. But no matter which salt you choose, it’s best to keep the portions in check. Here’s how several salts differ in sodium content, flavor and culinary uses.

New research shows more than half of low-wage workers at fast-food restaurants rely on public assistance to survive – a rate double that of the overall workforce. According to researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, low wages in the fast-food industry cost American taxpayers nearly $7 billion every year – that’s more than the entire annual budget of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A companion report by the National Employment Law Project found McDonald’s alone costs Americans $1.2 billion annually by paying its workers insufficient wages. Last year the top 10 largest fast-food companies alone made more than $7.4 billion in profits.http://www.democracynow.org/2013/10/18/super_sizing_welfare_costs_low_wages

Learn how food scientists and manufacturers have created food addictions by design and read tips to counter the cravings including the "outer ring strategy" and "5 ingredient rule".


Read more ...

Sandi Cornez's curator insight, November 18, 2013 7:48 PM

Read how the food companies trick you into craving junk food by making certain foods more addictive and tasty than others.

 

Steven Witherly, a food scientist has spent the last 20 years studying the why of addictive junk food. Read the entire article to get links to his excellent report, "Why Humans Like Junk Food".

 

Witherly says there are 2 factors that make eating pleasurable: one is the sensation of eating the food. This includes tastes, smell, and mouthfeel - which is very important. Food companies spend millions of dollars to discover the satisfying level of crunch in a potato chip or the perfect amount of fizzle in a soda. These factors all combine to create the food your brain craves.

 

The second factor is the actual macronutrient makeup of the food - blend of proteins, carbs, and fats it contains. And in the case of junk food, the manufacturers are looking for the perfect combination of salt, sugar, and fat that excites your brain, and gets you coming back for more.

 

So what can you do about this craving because as you probably know by now, junk food is unhealthy and causes a myriad of chronic diseases, weight gain, obesity, and even death in certain individuals. 

 

As you begin eating less and less processed foods, you begin to go through a transition period known as "gene reprogramming".

 

Best strategy is to avoid buying these products. If you can't do that then try to reduce the amount you buy/eat by using his strategies.

 

"Outer ring" and "5 ingredient rule". 

Shop on the outer ring of the grocery store where the produce section is located and the eggs, meats, fish etc. Remember you're really wanting real whole food, food that you're body recognizes, and food that serves your body.

 

.If the product has more than 5 ingredients, then put it back on the shelf. It most likely is trying to trick you into buying.

 

Eat a variety of foods and eat Rainbow Foods. These are the foods that contain the antioxidants, the phytonutrients, the minerals, and vitamins that your body craves.

 

Instead of eating a chip with a dip of unknown ingredients. try eating carrots, celery, red, orange peppers with hummus or nut butters. You'll still get the crunch and your body will thank you by keeping you healthy. Just remember to chew slowly and you'll get a great mouthfeel. Plus your digestive system will be happy.

 

And there are better alternatives to handling stress than eating junk foods which really do not comfort you in the long run. Listen to music you like, get up and dance with your special ones, breathe deeply and let out a pleasurable sound, try yoga, meditation, take a nature walk, sing in the shower, laugh for no reason - a great stress reducer, help someone else and you'll forget your problems.

How A Cup Of Tea Makes You Happier, Healthier, And More Productive

How A Cup Of Tea Makes You Happier, Healthier, And More Productive | Nutrition Dos and Don'ts | Scoop.it

"We've steeped ourselves in the research and the tea leaves read quite auspiciously: tea makes you more alert more relaxed and less likely to die tomorrow. These are all good things."

 

Humans have been steeping leaves in hot water for 500,000 years. Us Americans drank 79 billion servings of tea last year, amounting to 3.6 billions gallons in total.

 

So clearly, we're quite invested in the hot stuff--as is the freshly tea-pushing Starbucks--but what does it invest in us? New research into the relationship between nutrition and the brain is helping us to understand why tea time is such an essential part of the day--for the components of tea help us be more alert, more relaxed, and healthier over the long term.

Food Packaging Substances BPA and Phthalates Causing Obesity, Diabetes ("watch out for the packaging")

Food Packaging Substances BPA and Phthalates Causing Obesity, Diabetes ("watch out for the packaging") | Nutrition Dos and Don'ts | Scoop.it
Research shows that two common food packaging substances - BPA and phthalates - are causing numerous health problems, including obesity and diabetes.

The first chemical contaminant, a phthalate known as Di-2-ethylhexylphthalate (DEHP) was found to be closely linked to a teen’s risk of insulin resistance, a precursor to type 2 diabetes. DEHP is one of many phthalates used in food packaging, this one to soften plastic drink bottles.
... BPA is frequently used in the linings of canned food and is a known endocrine disrupter, suspected to be linked to increased risk of breast cancer, fertility problems, and increased risk of diabetes.As parents, there is certainly a responsibility to teach our children good nutrition, but we must also provide them with the right food and food products. This includes healthy food packaging. Avoid buying food in plastic containers and certainly avoid microwaving plastics, which can cause the contaminants to leech into the food. Also, avoid canned goods whenever possible.
