10 common nutrition myths debunked

They require discipline and patience. Navigating your way to good nutrition can be daunting. And along the way, it is common to stumble upon nutrition myths that are believable and much more exciting than the truth. According toAnn Whitaker, manager of nutrition and clinical patient education for Kaiser Permanente of Georgia, The best approach to nutrition and health is a balanced diet, ample sleep and regular exercise. This is truly the best course to follow. Whitaker, one of the instructors for the total health nutrition series offered to participants of the Kaiser Permanente Corporate Run/Walk & Fitness Program, says her list of common nutrition myths was pulled from real-life conversations over the years that she and her Kaiser Permanente colleagues in nutrition had with Kaiser Permanente members.

Vitamins Don’t Make Girl Scout Cookies Healthful

Medicine Or Treats? Gummy Vitamins And Chocolate Calcium Chews Blur The Line

Apple juice is right up there with soda in sugar content and isn’t a significant source of vitamins or minerals. So what parameters do we use to define junk food? Government restrictions on particular foods will lead many food producers to rejigger their formulas to escape new regulations. If Coca-Cola packs its sodas with vitamins, can it then claim that this is a more healthful food than apple juice? (Dr Pepper Snapple Group already dabbled with that route by adding vitamin E to 7Up and proclaiming its antioxidant value on the label. It agreed to stop after a lawsuit alleging that the labels were misleading.) The FDA could get into similarly problematic territory if it tries to go after cookies or chips. Cookies arent a healthful food even with a dose of vitamins wedged into them, but the fortified Mango Creme Girl Scout cookies are actually far lower in sugar than Golden Crisp cereal.

Recent Study: Vitamins and Dietary Supplements in Thailand

(All we knew is that the edible versions of our favorite stone-age characters would somehow make us big and strong). Now that we’re older and wiser, we’ve switched Pebbles out for biotin and prenatal vitamins in hopes of growing healthier, stronger and shinier hair . But is it really working? According to Dr. Melissa Piliang , a dermatologist at the Cleveland Clinic, we shouldn’t be too quick to assume that vitamins are the be-all and end-all for hair loss, brittleness and dullness. “One of the biggest misconceptions is that vitamins will help with these problems, but in fact, they may be linked to internal issues stemming from the thyroid or chronic anemia,” she explained. “Daily multivitamins or prenatal supplements help to fill gaps found in our diets,” said Dr.

Vitamins & Minerals For Hair That’s Healthier, Stronger And Shinier

We’re your online guide to making conscious choices that help people, animals and the planet. Are There GMOs Hiding in Your Vitamins? Prev Post 1 of 1Next Slide Vitamins are good for you, right? Well, like most everything else that we consume these days, the answer is not a clear yes or no. Many different diets, including healthy plant-based ones, include vitamin supplements, as they can be an important part of rounding out vitamin and mineral intake. Vitamins can come from different sources before they end up in a bottle on your shelf, and some ways of extracting them are more controversial and less naturally occurring than others. Like many other aspects of our lives and what we eat these days, vitamins have also been tainted by pharmaceutical and agricultural companies.

The chewable ones tend to be quite chalky. If these features prevent some people from taking recommended supplements, the chewy candy-like forms may be preferable, says Watts, but hes concerned with the potential of overuse.

Mental Health, Autism Spectrum Patients Struggle To Get Health Care Coverage

Nev. mental health scandal reveals broken system

Sometimes people self-medicate and start using illegal drugs to deal with some underlying issue. said Plotnick of Mental Health America, a 104-year-old mental health advocacy organization, the oldest in the U.S. The organization has affiliates in 41 states that provide services and are all to some degree advocacy organizations. Many people are self-medicating. We are also able to understand certain mental health issue better than we used to, Plotnick said.

Since then, the Legislature has added new programs such as the PACT teams and the mental health courts, which advocates say have been successful in keeping the mentally ill off the streets. But such programs exist by legislative fiat, and theyre often the first on the chopping block when recessions hit. In 2011, for instance, the Sandoval administration and Washoe and Clark counties squabbled over who should assume responsibility for paying for mental health courts. Politically, mental health advocates say its easy for politicians to ignore the mentally ill because elected officials face few electoral repercussions for threatening to remove services or voting to remove them. From a political standpoint, the mentally ill dont vote, said Dale Carrison, chief of staff at University Medical Center. Whats the easiest place to take money where nobody complains?

24-hour Device Offers Better Blood Pressure Test, Twin Cities Doctors Say

Lower Blood Pressure May Help Sicker Kidney Patients

And it kept waking him at night. But in the end, the new device found that an earlier diagnosis of high blood pressure was inaccurate, allowing him to stop taking medication. Its not like youd wear it for fun, Zoss said. But to find out you can eliminate any sort of medication that youll otherwise be taking for life? Its nothing. 76 million Americans The technology for 24-hour monitoring has existed for 20 years, but received little interest until Britains National Health Service opted two years ago to offer it to patients suspected of having high blood pressure.

Half of People With High Blood Pressure Don’t Know It

And despite the availability of drugs to control high blood pressure, many people who do know they have the condition are not being properly treated. “Blood pressure-lowering drugs are generally inexpensive and commonly available treatments,” senior study author Dr. Salim Yusuf, a professor of medicine at McMaster University’s Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, said in a university news release. “However, only a third of patients commenced on treatment are on enough treatment to control their blood pressure. This is worst in low-income countries, but significant in high- and middle-income countries, too.” The researchers led by the Population Health Research Institute (PHRI) of McMaster University and Hamilton Health Sciences examined data on 154,000 adults aged between 35 and 70.

In this group of patients, there was about a 25% reduction in end-stage kidney disease compared to those who achieved a blood pressure goal of 140/90, which is the standard of doctors when treating patients with high blood pressure. Among patients who weren’t as sick — those with little or no protein in their urine — efforts to lower blood pressure had little effect on kidney disease progression. “This has always been a hot topic: Is a lower blood pressure goal better at preserving kidney function than the standard goal? The answer is a qualified yes, notably in people who have some protein in their urine,” Appel said. The findings suggest that doctors should check for protein in the urine before they determine the blood pressure goal for blacks with kidney disease, he added. Blacks account for about one-third of patients with end-stage kidney disease in the United States, although they make up only 12% of the population.

This Is What Happens To Your Body When You Exercise

Exercise is Not Likely to Be Your Ticket to the Weight-Loss Express

Apocrine Glands This second type of sweat gland is found predominantly in hair-covered areas, like the scalp, armpits and groin. These sweat glands produce a fattier sweat, typically in response to emotional stress, that can result in odor when bacteria on the skin begin to break it down, according to the Mayo Clinic. Face The capillaries close to the skin’s surface in the face dilate as well, as they strain to release heat. For some exercisers, this may result in a particularly red face after a workout. Joints Exercising puts extra weight on the joints, sometimes up to five or six times more than your bodyweight, says Laskowski. Ankles, knees, hips, elbows and shoulders all have very different functions, but operate in similar ways. Each joint is lined with cushioning tissue at the ends of the bones called cartilage, as well as soft tissue and lubricating fluid, to help promote smooth and easy motion.

Smolensky, an expert in chronobiology, the study of the body clock. “My personal approach is to train when your biological efficiency is greatest, which means late afternoon or early evening for most people,” Smolensky, a professor at the University of Texas Health Sciences Center in Houston, told the New York Times in 2009. The late Thomas Reilly and Jim Waterhouse, professor of Liverpool John Moores University in England, also noted that athletes’ best performances, including world records, were typically set at dusk.

Sitting, Lack Of Exercise Linked With Symptoms Of Depression In New Study

That type of seriously sedentary behavior can cut your life expectancy by five years. It’s Linked With Cancer As MSNBC reported, sitting may be responsible for more than 170,000 cases of cancer yearly — with breast and colon cancers being the most influenced by rates of physical activity (and inactivity). But according to that article, a little bit of walking can go a long way. “For many of the most common cancers, it seems like something as simple as a brisk walk for 30 minutes a day can help reduce cancer risk,” Christine Friedenreich, an epidemiologist with Alberta Health Services told MSNBC. It Makes Your Bottom Bigger As our UK compatriots recently wrote, researchers have found that putting pressure on certain body parts (i.e., your bottom) can produce up to 50 percent more fat than usual. HuffPost UK reported: “In a bid to explain why sedentary behaviour causes weight-gain, scientists believe that the precursors to fat cells turn into flab (and end up producing more) when subjected to prolonged periods of sitting down, otherwise known as ‘mechanical stretching loads.'” It Could Raise Your Heart Attack Risk Not too long ago, Men’s Health covered a study in the journal Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, in which researchers from Louisiana found that people who sit for the majority of the day are 54 percent more likely to die of a heart attack. Indeed, the investigators found that sitting was an independent risk factor for serious cardiovascular events.

Working out at night refreshes a tired exercise routine

And for public policy makers, it makes it challenging to make the case for interventions that increase exercise, as inevitably the outcome hoped for is weight loss, and when outcomes are poor, it becomes more difficult to make the case that the intervention is worthwhile (like P.E. or more recess time in schools, for instance). [Read: Back to School (Lunch) Season: Part 1 .] We need to unhitch exercise from our weight-management wagons. Breaking it down, figure that your diet is responsible for 80 percent of your weight and fitness – unless you’re incredibly active, just 20 percent. If weight’s your concern you’re much more likely to lose it in your kitchen than you are in your gym. But don’t forget, if it’s health you’re after, you need to do both. Whoever said life was fair?

Jessica Simpson On Baby Weight, Kim Kardashian, Duchess’ Pregnancy

Good Asthma Control During Pregnancy Is Vital

Her daughter with Kanye West, North , was born about a month early on June 15, and the reality TV star has kept a low profile, reportedly so she can wow naysayers when she shows off her post-baby slimdown. “I felt for Kim — I knew exactly what she was going through,” Simpson said. “I send a lot of love her way, and I know she’ll come back with a bang.” PHOTOS: Kate Middleton through the years In contrast, Simpson highlighted Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge’s pregnancy with recent arrival Prince George . The wife of Britain’s Prince William barely put on any excess weight and only appeared pregnant because of her baby bump.

The Hollywood baby boom

So, if a woman tells a current or former partner she is pregnant when she isn’t and requests financial assistance to deal with said pregnancy in any way, shape or form, she is breaking the law. In addition to being in violation of this scheme to defraud statute, she could also be accused of violating New Yorks criminal impersonation statute. Iyer read the statute as follows: A person is guilty of criminal impersonation when they impersonate another and [acts] in such assumed character with intent to obtain a benefit or to injure or defraud another.But realistically, though a prosecutor could go after someone for either fraud or criminal impersonation, Iyer said a woman in this situation would most likely be prosecuted for simple harassment or larceny, which is the legal term for theft. But what if the woman is in a long-term relationshipand, instead of making explicit financial requests, obtains something elselike a marriage proposal? That could be the basis in divorce court, Iyer said. Because in civil court you are trying to get some non-incarceratory repair. Famed celebrity divorce attorney Raoul Felder agreed.

Faking a Pregnancy Is Inadvisable; Courts Agree

6, 2013 Good asthma management during pregnancy is vital during pregnancy as poor asthma control can have adverse effects on maternal and fetal outcomes, says a new review published today in The Obstetrician & Gynaecologist (TOG). The review notes that the severity of asthma during pregnancy remains unchanged, worsens or improves in equal proportions. For women with severe asthma, control is more likely to deteriorate (around 60% of cases) compared to women with mild asthma (around 10% of cases). However, the authors conclude that all pregnant women with asthma need to be closely reviewed throughout pregnancy, irrespective of disease severity. National guidelines recommend the management and treatment for asthma in pregnant women should be generally the same as for non-pregnant women and men, with the intensity of antenatal maternal and fetal surveillance to be based on the severity of their condition. The authors also note that poor asthma control can lead to adverse effects on maternal and fetal outcomes, with previous studies suggesting poor asthma control is associated with hypertension in pregnancy, a higher frequency of caesarean section and low birth weight. However, the authors emphasise that in most women with well-controlled asthma there are no or minimal additional risks.

Pregnancy length similar from one child to next

Who doesn’t? But you’re right, at-home 3-D printers come with some pretty serious risks. At-home 3-D printers (available from $400 to $1,300) that let you manufacture your own cup and saucer or screwdriver can release from 20 to 200 billion toxic nanoparticles as they print objects. A recent test ranked them all as high emitters. And some studies indicate that the emissions are related to total and cardio-respiratory mortality, hospital admissions for stroke and asthma symptoms. The way 3-D printers work is that they heat up a thermoplastic feedstock (the equivalent of an inkjet cartridge) and then extrude the plastic in layers to create your desired object.
