Are low-carb diets BAD for you? Nutrition expert claims giving up grains can lead to heart disease and cancer Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2569612/Are-low-carb-diets-BAD-Nutrition-expert-claims-giving-grains-lead-heart-disease-cancer.html#ixzz47LjxS7vO Follow us: @MailOnline on Twitter | DailyMail on Facebook

Low-carbohydrate diets are all the rage, but one nutrition expert has claimed that they may not be as healthy as we think.
According to Dr T Colin Campbell’s new book The Low-Carb Fraud, giving up grains can mean putting yourself at a higher risk for heart disease, cancer and other regenerative diseases. He says that not only are low-carb diets lacking in nutritional value,
but they’re actually even worse than the standard American diet.

 

Brain scan to diagnose Alzheimer’s disease developed by scientists

Alzheimer’s disease could be definitively diagnosed for the first time after scientists proved brain scans can pick up the condition in its earliest stages.

Currently the only way to determine whether Alzheimer’s is present is to look at the brain of a patient after death.

For patients who are still alive, doctors usually use special cognitive tests which monitor memory and everyday skills such as washing and dressing.

“It can take months, and sometimes years, for some people to get diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and so a definitive way to diagnose the disease would be a big leap forward.”

 

Aluminum, Fluoride, and Glyphosate—A Toxic Trifecta Implicated in Autism and Alzheimer’s Disease

Aluminum is a known neurotoxin, and according to Professor Christopher Exley of Keele University, aluminum-containing products are likely fueling the rise in Alzheimer’s disease.1 In an article published in the journal Frontiers in Neurology,2 he writes:

“We are all accumulating a known neurotoxin in our brain from our conception to our death. The presence of aluminum in the human brain should be a red flag alerting us all to the potential dangers of the aluminum age.

How do we know that Alzheimer’s disease is not the manifestation of chronic aluminum toxicity in humans?”

People with aluminum toxicity display many of the same symptoms as those with dementia, Parkinson’s, ADHD, autism, and other neurological diseases, and mounting evidence suggests aluminum may play a significant role in the development of those (and other) diseases.

 

 

Aldehyde Poisoning

Many health authorities today suggest that we eat fermented foods. These are foods to which one has added a yeast, fungus, mold or ferment, which is allowed to grow on the food. This changes the chemistry of the food. Examples include yogurt, kefir, kimchi, sauerkraut, miso, all cheese, tempeh, natto, tofu, wine, beer, apple cider vinegar, Rejuvelac, and some others.

Among the reasons some recommend these foods are to provide better flora for the intestines, and perhaps to produce certain vitamins and other chemical substances that are beneficial for the body.  Some yeasts, for example, can produce some B-complex vitamins in the intestines.

 

Kids with ADHD must squirm to learn, study says

For decades, frustrated parents and teachers have barked at fidgety children with ADHD to “Sit still and concentrate!”

But new research shows that if you want ADHD kids to learn, you have to let them squirm. The foot-tapping, leg-swinging and chair-scooting movements of children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder are actually vital to how they remember information and work out complex cognitive tasks, according to a study published in an early online release of the Journal of Abnormal Child Psychology.

“The typical interventions target reducing hyperactivity. It’s exactly the opposite of what we should be doing for a majority of children with ADHD,” said one of the study’s authors, Mark Rapport, head of the Children’s Learning Clinic at the University of Central Florida. “The message isn’t ‘Let them run around the room,’ but you need to be able to facilitate their movement so they can maintain the level of alertness necessary for cognitive activities.”

 

What Are Acrylamides

Comment:  Finally discovered in 2002, acrylamides are toxic chemicals (known to cause cancer and other maladies) that naturally occur in certain foods when especially cooked at high temperatures—such as by frying, grilling, barbequing—even baking and roasting can produce them. Deep fried foods are high on the list, too—including potato chips L. (Boiling and steaming are not believed to produce acrylamides.)  Potato, grain, and coffee products are most susceptible to acrylamides. (Cigarette smoke carries acrylamides, too.) Acrylamides are now known to produce genetic mutations in the human body.

 

 

 

7 things you should know about shrimp

Shrimp cocktail is on practically every holiday menu, but many of my clients aren’t sure if they should avoid shrimp or dig in. If you’re a seafood eater and you enjoy these crustaceans, either chilled or in hot dishes, here are seven things you should know.

 

600 Reasons Turmeric May Be The World’s Most Important Herb

There is a medicinal spice so timelessly interwoven with the origins of human culture and metabolism, so thoroughly supported by modern scientific inquiry, as to be unparalleled in its proven value to human health and well-being.

Indeed, turmeric turns the entire drug-based medical model on its head.  Instead of causing far more side effects than therapeutic ones,  as is the case for most patented pharmaceutical medications, turmeric possesses hundreds of potential side benefits, having been empirically demonstrated to positively modulate over 160 different physiological pathways in the mammalian body.
