MSG: What Is This Stuff? - Ask Dr. Maxwell ... | The Basic Life | Scoop.it

MSG, otherwise known as monosodium glutamate, is a savory-tasting flavor enhancer. It may sound harmless but it’s actually one of the worse food additives you can consume. It’s is responsible for a myriad of unexplainable symptoms ranging from headaches to chronic gastrointestinal distress.

13 Hacks To Help You Give Up Soda For Good

13 Hacks To Help You Give Up Soda For Good | The Basic Life | Scoop.it

By Amanda MacMillan You know soda's not exactly good for you -- but at the same time, it can be hard to resist. Its sweet taste, pleasant fizz and energizing jolt often seems like just what you need to wash down your dinner, get you through an afternoon slump or quench your thirst at the movies.

 

But the more soda you consume (regular or diet), the more hazardous your habit can become. And whether you're a six-pack-a-day drinker or an occasional soft-drink sipper, cutting back can likely have benefits for your weight and your overall health.

Studies prove low fat and low saturated fat diet to be bad for health

Studies prove low fat and low saturated fat diet to be bad for health | The Basic Life | Scoop.it

The mantra that saturated fat is bad for you and must be removed to reduce the risk of heart disease has been drummed into public consciousness for almost four decades. But independent scientific evidence shows that this advice has paradoxically increased our cardiovascular risk. And the obsession with total cholesterol levels has led to the over- medication of millions with statins with yet more harm than benefit.


Recent prospective cohort studies have not supported any significant association between saturated fat intake and cardiovascular risk. If anything, saturated fat has been found to be protective in many studies. 


Current government guidelines on dietary fat are not supported by independent evidence from randomized control trials.


First, there is no association between heart disease, blood cholesterol and dietary fat; and a meta-analysis of the RCTs available at the time the first guidelines were introduced confirmed that there was no relationship between dietary fat intake and deaths from CHD or all-causes, despite significant reduction in cholesterol levels in the intervention and control groups.  


Second, low fat diets (in accordance with government guidelines) are actually bad for health in comparison with low carbohydrate, low glycaemic diets of the same calorific content.


Third, independent population studies showed that while low cholesterol level is a significant risk factor for cardiovascular and non-cardiac mortality in healthy individuals, high cholesterol level is not.


Finally, the advice to specifically increase omega-6 PFUAs intake may actually increase the risks of CHD and death. 


In view of this evidence on the lack of association between heart disease, blood cholesterol and dietary fat, the mass medication of healthy people with cholesterol lowering statins has resulted in yet more harm than good (see  Statins for the Healthy are Harmful ).
