10 foods that sound healthy but really aren’t 

 

When grabbing snacks with words like “fruit,” “veggie,” or “vitamin” in the name, it’s natural to assume these foods will offer us some level of nutrition. (Like, maybe at least some vitamin C… please?) The reality, though, is that a number of foods promoted to the public as healthy are really far from it. To make the best dietary choices, it’s helpful to get savvy about what’s actually doing your body good and what’s just marketing BS. We dug into food labels and chatted with Phoenix-based registered dietitian nutritionist Yaffi Lvovato get the lowdown on 10 supposedly healthy foods to view with a healthy dose of skepticism.

Mother-of-two ditches vegan diet she followed for 15 YEARS after it caused her immune system to crash - and now she ONLY eats meat and claims she has more energy than ever before 

 

A mother-of-two ditched the vegan diet she followed for fifteen years after she claims it caused her immune system to crash - and now only eats meat.

Nicole Carter, 44, of California, went vegan when she was 18, thinking it was the best thing to do for her health and to protect the environment.

Her diet was packed with whole foods, leafy greens, berries and freshly squeezed juices. She grew her own vegetables and cut out sugar and alcohol.

But her health flopped, suffering with joint pain, anxiety, depression, low energy, insomnia, constipation and digestive problems.

'Hundreds of bugs' in child's backpack leads to Florida mom's arrest 

 

A Florida woman was arrested last week after her children's poor hygiene at school prompted a sheriff's office inquiry revealing living conditions unfit for children.

Jessica Stevenson, 33, of Milton, was arrested Friday and charged with child neglect without causing great bodily harm. Her bond was set at $12,500.

According to her arrest report, a staffer at Bagdad Elementary School reported on three siblings who attended the school to the Florida Department of Children and Families.

The employee said she’d noticed a second-grade student wearing the same clothing for an entire week in April and that the child’s body odor was hard to ignore, the report stated

The employee questioned the second-grader as to when their last bath had been, the report stated. The student replied they did not know.

5 potential drawbacks of following a vegan diet 

 

Like with any diet, veganism comes with benefits and drawbacks. And though veganism can be a healthy, sustainable diet for some, it's important to learn about any potential risks associated with this popular eating pattern before choosing to adhere to it.

Here are some of the potential drawbacks of following a vegan diet.

When following a vegan diet, you can develop certain micronutrient deficiencies if you're not careful

Vegan diets tend to be rich in many nutrients, low in saturated fat and cholesterol, and also higher in dietary fiber. But there are many nutrients that those following a vegan diet oftentimes do not consume enough of.

If you're not careful, following a vegan diet can cause you to develop some deficiencies in vitamin D, calcium, omega-3 fatty acids, and zinc.

Scientists Discover Gene Mutation That Prevents Obesity 

 

Researchers in the United Kingdom say they’ve discovered a genetic mutation that mutes appetite, a scientific advancement that could potentially be used to develop new drugs to prevent obesity.

The mutation stems from a gene called MC4R, which researchers previously discovered can impact hunger — it acts as a switch to alert your brain when you are full, encouraging you to stop eating.

For some people with MC4R mutations, the “switch” is always off, meaning they never feel full and eat more. For them, the risk of diabetes and heart disease is 50 percent higher than those without the mutation.

But researchers from the University of Cambridge found the opposite effect as they pored through data from 500,000 volunteers from the U.K. Biobank, ages 40 to 69.

Eating breakfast is not a good weight loss strategy, scientists confirm 

 

You probably feel guilty when you skip breakfast. Why wouldn’t you? Many of us grew up with parents fussing to make sure we had something in our bellies before we set off for school. Or we were brainwashed by TV commercial propaganda that promised eating cereal would make us lean and athletic, that breakfast keeps our metabolism on track and helps us avoid bingeing later.

It turns out the research on eating breakfast has been far, far less conclusive than either your mother or Tony the Tiger would have you believe. In fact, if you’ve been eating breakfast to stave off weight gain, researchers are increasingly learning that breakfast might have the opposite of the desired effect — it can promote more calorie consumption and weight gain. But even the best available studies in the mix have serious limitations.

'These diets are bulls***': Viewers criticise How to Lose Weight Well for promoting 'fad' slimming plans - including a liquid cleanse and one that only allows you a SINGLE meal a day 

 

Channel 4's How to Lose weight Well has sparked anger from viewers for promoting 'fad diets'.

In the third episode, which aired on Monday night, Dr Xand van Tulleken and Dr Helen Lawal road tested the latest hyped-up diets including a 'visualisation' diet and a one-meal-a-day plan, on six volunteers.

Each slimmer tried a different plan, ranging from the 12 day 'crashers' and six-week 'shapeshifters', to the four-month 'life-changers'.

And while many of the participants saw dramatic results, viewers took to social media to slam the 'fad' diets as dangerous and not sustainable long-term.

Millennials Are Disrupting Thanksgiving With Their Tiny Turkeys 

 

Small birds are having a big moment.

Tiny turkeys will increasingly grace Thanksgiving tables next week, thanks to the millennial generation’s ongoing campaign to remake American gastronomy. The holiday depicted by Norman Rockwell—Grandma showing off a cooked bird so plump it weighs down a banquet plate—is still common. But smaller families, growing guilt over wasteful leftovers and a preference for free-range fowl have all played roles in the emergence of petite poultry as a holiday dinner centerpiece.

Compromised Ethics Run Rampant in Nutrition Research 

 

Here’s something to ponder the next time you see a headline extolling a study that found a particular food will help you lose weight, avoid heart disease, or live longer: The company selling the product likely paid for the study; that same company also might be paying the university researcher who led the study; your tax dollars may have supplemented this company’s “research” because federal agencies regularly partner with corporations to promote foods. Finally, you’ll never discover that the “research” behind the headline is little more than marketing, because journalists rarely question these financial arrangements.

Experts Explain Why LGBTQ People Have More Eating Disorders 

 

While the National Eating Disorder Association reports that the LGBTQ community is disproportionately plagued by eating disorders, experts are saying that being a minority contributes to this dilemma.

Dr. Norman H. Kim, national director for program development at Reasons Eating Disorder Center, believes that queer people are drawn to unhealthy eating habits because of minority stress. Behaviors such as binging, purging, and undereating are a symptom of chronic social stress LGBTQ people experience as minorities, he told Stylecaster.

The rates at which queer people are having this reaction to being otherized are alarming.

Everything You Know About Obesity Is Wrong 

 

From the 16th century to the 19th, scurvy killed around 2 million sailors, more than warfare, shipwrecks and syphilis combined. It was an ugly, smelly death, too, beginning with rattling teeth and ending with a body so rotted out from the inside that its victims could literally be startled to death by a loud noise. Just as horrifying as the disease itself, though, is that for most of those 300 years, medical experts knew how to prevent it and simply failed to.

Which brings us to one of the largest gaps between science and practice in our own time. Years from now, we will look back in horror at the counterproductive ways we addressed the obesity epidemic and the barbaric ways we treated fat people—long after we knew there was a better path.

FDA issues warning about food prepared with liquid nitrogen 

 

The US Food and Drug Administration issued a safety alert Thursday, warning consumers about the potential dangers of eating food prepared with liquid nitrogen.

The FDA said serious injury, including internal organ damage, can result from eating foods such as ice cream, cereal or cocktails prepared by adding liquid nitrogen at the point of sale and eating it shortly thereafter.

"The FDA has become aware of severe -- and in some cases, life-threatening -- injuries, such as damage to skin and internal organs caused by liquid nitrogen still present in the food or drink," the FDA said in issuing its safety alert. "Injuries have occurred from handling or eating products prepared by adding liquid nitrogen immediately before consumption, even after the liquid nitrogen has fully evaporated due to the extremely low temperature of the food."
