I have a sweet tooth! . . . Six healthy sweeteners

By: admin
Category: 
Refined sugar is considered to be as addictive as a drug, and potentially as detrimental to your health.
 
And while there are a ton of sugar-free sweetener alternatives on the market — I’m talking about calorie-free, chemical “artificial sweeteners” here — they are even more unhealthy than just plain ol’ sugar! Many people turn to these artificial sweeteners thinking they will help them lose weight without sacrificing taste, but this is the one of the WORST food lies out there.

By Authority Nutrition

If you are overweight, obese, diabetic or suffering from the western diet in any way, then you should probably avoid sugar as much as possible. You should NOT be consuming sugar every day, more like once per week or once every two weeks (at most). And if you want to be truly healthy, you really shouldn’t be consuming foods that have "added sugar" to them.

Many people are unaware that common table salt contains chemicals and even sugar! Salt is necessary but can be dangerous if taken in this chemical form.

Grapefruit Juice Can Interact With Certain Medicines

By: admin
Category: 

A nutraceutical is a food or part of a food that allegedly provides medicinal or health benefits, including the prevention and treatment of disease. Grapefruit juice has been touted as containing many compounds that can reduce hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis) and even the risk of cancer. Grapefruit juice can, therefore, be justifiably referred to as a classic nutraceutical. However, for many persons taking certain medications, grapefruit juice might actually better be termed a "nutrapollutical!"

Coffee’s Benefits Are More Than You Might Think

By: admin
Category: 

By Aaron E. Carroll, The New York Times

When I was a kid, my parents refused to let me drink coffee because they believed it would “stunt my growth.” It turns out, of course, that this is a myth. Studies have failed, again and again, to show that coffee or caffeine consumption are related to reduced bone mass or how tall people are.
