Smoothies and fruit juices are a new risk to health, US scientists warn | Biology | Scoop.it
Scientists say potential damage from naturally occurring fructose in apparently healthy drinks is being overlooked
LearningCommonsHHS's insight:

I was thinking about what to write for my article and I like smoothies so I wanted to find out if they were really as healthy as some claim to be and if if they made such a difference in your diet like I had heard, so I posted this article and it might help me and others see their health benefits.

If big companies like Coke and Pepsi are buying companies that produce fruit juice for people to drink, will they contaminate those drinks with unhealthy products to get a better taste?<br>-Marcus Xavier Valentin<br>
LearningCommonsHHS's comment, November 14, 2013 4:44 PM
I find it funny how most people nowadays say that smoothies are the best thing for you, and that you should have them more often, when really you shouldn't have them as often because of the fructose.

Do Smoothies Make You Fat?

How to choose a skinny smoothie.
LearningCommonsHHS's insight:

Jessica Rezende

This is a article on how smoothies are good for you. He says how things can be good to you under conditions. For a healthy smoothie you have to put in things that are healthy like for example if you add to much sugar than it wouldn't really be a "skinny smoothie" but if you add just fruits and greens it can be very healthy. He explains that it can be healthy if you make it healthy

FDA warns 17 food companies of misleading claims on labels

FDA warns 17 food companies of misleading claims on labels | Biology | Scoop.it
In an unusually broad crackdown, the U.S.
LearningCommonsHHS's insight:

Alicia Sagastume

The FDA warned 17 companies for flase labeling whats in their product. Famous companies like Gerber and Nestle were also warned. Gerber and Nestle are aiming for children so if they lie about the nutritriance in their product kids under 2 years old could be very harmed by this. Kids that young need specific amounts of nutriance to survive because the appropriate dietary levels for that age have not been established yet. A very well known company named Cheerios was warned and accused of violating a federal law for saying that their product could lower heart diseases and cholesteral.

LearningCommonsHHS's insight:

Jordan Nunez

 

BBC News online explains that if smokers switch to e cigarettes tha n many lives could be saved. "Rather than inhaling the toxic substances found in tobacco, e-cigarette users inhale vaporised liquid nicotine." the vapor can help a smoker cut the toxic substance out and could lower the rat of deaths caused by smoking.

 

Jack MacDonald 

 

BBC News atricle tells us many people in britian are smoking and dying from it. So many people been buying e-cigerates and the E-cigerates have been working there has been a lower rate of deaths from smoking and the new E-cigerates are going to become medicene in 2016

It was smart thing to keep the addictive nicotine by itself so they don't have to be mixed with loads of poisons. It's about time people realized it was the nicotine that was addictive and not the other things in cigarettes that can actually kill.

Sports nutrition: the role of carbohydrates in endurance sports

Sports nutrition: the role of carbohydrates in endurance sports | Biology | Scoop.it
The role of 'carbohydrate rinsing' in sports performance enhancement- Increase your strength speed and stamina for free at the amazing new Peak Performance sports science Library
LearningCommonsHHS's insight:

Jonathan Dang

 

In this article it really gives the reader the view of how carbohydrates could be an athletes advantage during endurance sports. I am not sure whether or not this article is modern but in my opinion I feel that some of its information are actually useful. It includes expieriments to help the readers know how they got their information so we can trust them. I liked how this article does not just provide informations that just proves their article but added the different views of drinking and rinsing. In my opinion I feel that this is designed for viewers to debate which is more essential during a person's exercise. The only question I would have for this article would be if the method that they provided actually works. People who wishes to preform better in endurance sports should read this article.

 

This article goes into their question if rinsing a carboydrate solution in the mouth helps one preform better and longer? Reseachers studied the effects of drinking a carbohydrate solution before their exercise and rinsing it in the mouth to see which method shows the higher quality in endurance sports. As they looked more into it they found out that maybe  the mouth and brain could have an important role in providing fuel for the body to go longer. Having the carbohydrate solution inside a person's mouth would send positive sensory information but when drinking it could lead to gastro-intestinal distress when  a large amount of fluids is drank. I agree with that because drinking too much can lead to stomach problems since it happens to me. When an athlete feels fatigue their muscles, joints, and core sends a negative sensory information to the brain. With the sweetness from the fluid that was rinsed in the mouth in a way reduces the amount of negative sensory information allowing one to preform better with the postive or happy thoughts/feelings that it would send out. There are times when one should rinse or drink depending on the duration of the exercise. Rinsing the mouth with carbohydrate during the exercise can improve the preformance for 30-60 minutes. When the exercise lasts 2 or more hours the best option would be to drink the carbohydrate solution because it is the only solution that will provide fuel. From drinking it, it would temporarily refill your stomach.

 

Jack Macdonald 

 

This article is about how exercising and getting the right amount of carbohydrates can affect how the athlete plays.  If you get the right amount of carbhoydrates you can play amazing because of it but if you dont get enoughit can affect you in bad way.

Get your fuel facts straight with three popular myths -- and one surprising truth -- about your nutrition.
LearningCommonsHHS's insight:

Kendall

This article is about what is a myth and what isn't about caffeine, breakfast, the time of day that you eat, and if natural is better. It's reliable because the author is a registered nutritionist and has a degree in nutrition. From prior knowledge, the information seems accurate and true. Breakfast is very important so it makes sense that eating breakfast every morning will keep you from gaining weight. All of this information seems accurate and will help keep a healthy diet.

Dietary Supplement Labeling Guide: Chapter IV. Nutrition Labeling

A Dietary Supplement Labeling Guide - Chapter IV. Nutrition Labeling
LearningCommonsHHS's insight:

Mrs. O.

This is a very thorough guide by the US FDA. It is intended for the food labeling industry. It is a little older, from 2005. It can be used by consumers to understand how the industry is required to label foods.

 

It is most useful for people who understand a lot of the special vocabulary used by the industry. I wonder if the FDA has another page that is more recent, since this one is 8 years old. I would find it a little confusing to use, but if I am looking for something specific, I should be able to find it here since it is from the FDA!
