Avocados unlike dairy have no cholesterol, saturated fat, milk sugar,lactose, or excess hormones. Best of all avocados and other plant based food don't harm animals.

 

Avocados not only help your heart, but they are kind to your skin, hair, and scalp. Read the article to discover other nifty uses for avocados.

The laser that can spot dangerous #bacteria in #food

The laser that can spot dangerous #bacteria in #food | Nutrition Today | Scoop.it

In a highly critical report last month, the British government came under fire for what the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies said was a failure to tackle the problem of food poisoning, which results in 20,000 people being hospitalised and 500 deaths every year. The thinktank blamed the worsening situation on a substantial fall in the number of food standards and environmental inspections between 2004 and 2013. The lack of inspections resulted in a cut in prosecutions, the thinktank said, and allowed sloppy procedures in the food industry to go unchecked. Now scientists in South Korea have developed a laser that can spot the presence of bacteria on the surface of food. The device could be used as an early warning system for consumers in the home and in restaurants, takeaways and grocery shops. The researchers from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) envisage that their laser could eventually be used in a dongle attached to a mobile phone so that when people are shopping, they will be able to scan a piece of meat to see if harmful bacteria are present. Prof Paul Park, the principle investigator on the project, said the unit could also be installed as part of a “smart” fridge that would notify users when their food was dangerous to eat, or on the production line in a factory when meat was being processed.
