We Won’t Get Fooled Again

Something Wrong with “Politically Correct” Healthy Nutrition?

“Avoid saturated fats.”
Saturated fats play many important roles in the body. They provide integrity to the cell wall, promote the body’s use of essential fatty acids, enhance the immune system, protect the liver and contribute to strong bones. The lungs and the kidneys cannot work without saturated fat. Saturated fats do not cause heart disease. In fact, saturated fats are the preferred food for the heart. Because your body needs saturated fats, it makes them out of carbohydrates and excess protein when there are not enough in the diet.

“Limit cholesterol.”
Dietary cholesterol contributes to the strength of the intestinal wall and helps babies and children develop a healthy brain and nervous system. Foods that contain cholesterol also provide many other important nutrients. Only oxidized cholesterol, found in most powdered milk and powdered eggs, contributes to heart disease. Powdered milk is added to 1% and 2% milk.

No Link Between Heart Failure and Coffee Intake

My Coffee Story

It’s a fact that I had never drunk coffee for about 40 years. What a fool of me.  I was such a victim of the myths that coffee and caffein are harmful for our cardiovascular health. After all, I started drinking coffee in the middle of 2007 after recovery from the second time kidney stone disease I’ve suffered of. You may not believe this fact and think it is somewhat  ridiculous, but it is true. In effort to overcome the second time kidney stone disease, I decided only apply natural way of therapies in which, upon  advice from an naturopath physician, I started undertaking diet according to my blood type. My blood type is B and, surprisingly, he advised me to drink arabica coffee too. According to blood type diet, coffee is not harmful for Type Bs and even  they can get its strong antioxidant properties.

It is like  heaven for me drinking extraordinary arabicaJava, Mandheling, Kalosi , and Brazil coffee. And the important thing is: I feel so good. I am healthy more than ever. I love to share with you  of the latest good information for the coffee lover. My thankfulness to the scientists undertaken the official research below.

Benefits of Filtered Drinking Water

Post author: Adhi Hartono

I and my family have been using  reverse osmosis (RO)  filtered drinking water for five years. It tastes so fresh and natural and is proved beneficial for our health this far. The RO system we used  is also economical to my budget.  From the health’s point of view, filtered drinking water is best choice rather than commercial bottled water.

Why Choose Filtered Water?

Bottled water, due to several factors, is obviously not a healthier or purer alternative to tap water. Also, bottled water is outrageously expensive when compared to the cost per gallon of tap water. If one is choosing only between tap water and bottled water, tap water is plainly the more ecobomical, and, in many cases, the healthier choice. Despite this assertion, tap water does not remain without its problems.

Healthy Choice at The Market

What Do You Find at The Market?

You don’t have to be  a food scientist or carry a gram counter or calculator when you go to the market. Simply focus on selecting the freshest foods in their most natural state. And use your knowledge of basic nutritional principles. Here are a few tips.

Avoid heavily fatted meats. Free- range poultry and meats have been raised without the excessive use of antibiotics and other chemicals, and they’re recommended for the Blood Type Diet. Free-range means just that – that animals haven’t been penned in. Once you try free-range meat or poultry, you’ll see the difference. The flesh is leaner, the color and texture are richer, and there is very little fat. It’s possible to raise red meats that have fat and cholesterol level that are closer to those of the leaner poultry, but the meat may be less tender and flavorful by modern standards. The giant agribusinesses are still locked into the traditional notion that consumers want rich, high-fat meats. Our ancestors consumed rather lean game or domestic animals that graze on alfalfa and other grasses. Today’s meats are corn-fed, kept healthy with antibiotics, and prized for the tenderness of their meat and the marbling of their fat. Fortunately, some business are beginning to respond to the growing demand for lean, organic meat. If your market hasn’t caught on to the trend, be sure to let the manager know.

Listening to Music Benefits Your Health

Result of  New Study

A new study found that people who listened to music that made them feel good had a 26 % increase in blood flow in their brachial artery, located in the upper arm, for about an hour afterward. This increase in blood flow indicates that the blood vessel expanded, which reflects a healthy output of nitric acid, a good-for-your-heart chemical that makes blood vessels function better and helps regulate blood flow, explains study leader Michael Miller, M.D., director of the Center for Preventive Cardiology at the University of Maryland Medical Center. Anxiety-provoking music, on the other hand, had the opposite effect. When study participants listened to music that made them feel anxious, their blood flow decreased by 6 percent.
