In September of 2001, shortly after the attacks of 9/11, I spoke to an Earthsave group on Long Island, New York.   At the time, I said that while what happened in NYC to the Twin Towers was a travesty and atrocity, there was a bigger travesty going on within American that is killing more people and more dangerous to the future of Americans than any terrorist attack ever would. I talked about the epidemic of obesity and the problem with misleading lables.  Soon after, during an interview on Orlando TV and later at the North American Vegetarian Summer Conference, I called food labels and packaged processed foods, "The Weapons of Mass Destruction."   Now, a global conference on obesity agrees yet this issue has barely received any attention in the current Presidential campaigns and debates.  

An estimated 388 million people will die from chronic disease worldwide over the next 10 years, according to World Health Organisation figures quoted by the alliance.  Like terrorism, some passing health threats get major government attention and media coverage, while heart and lung disease, diabetes and cancer account for 60 percent of the world's deaths.  And, it is these preventable chronic diseases that will break the bank of the health care systems and economies of many countries.

Trying to lose weight?    New research shows that including whole grains in your diet as part of your strategy to lose weight may be particularly heart healthy.

In a study of obese adults at risk of heart disease, those who cut their calories and increased their whole-grain intake lost more belly fat and lowered their blood levels of CRP than those who included more refined grains in their diet.   Fat that accumulates around the belly is the most damaging to health.    CRP,  or C-reactive protein, is a marker inflammation in blood vessels, and both excess belly fat and CRP are linked to heart attack and stroke.

Dr. Penny Kris-Etherton, the senior researcher of the study, and her colleagues at Pennsylvania State University published their findings in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.  Dr Kris-Etherton said, 

Getting More Health Protection, Naturally! PDF Print E-mail

We hear a lot about the protective and beneficial components of foods and how important they are for us.  These components include antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, carotenoids, fiber and isoflavones, to name a few.
We also know there are certain dietary components that are harmful. These include, but not limited to, saturated fats and cholesterol.

Many people ingest supplements thinking this is the easiest way to increase their intake of these nutrients and ensure nutritional adequacy.  Yet, plant foods are one of the richest sources of these protective components and increasing the amount of plant foods, increases the amount of these nutrients.  Plant foods are also very low in saturated fats and cholesterol so by consuming more natural occuring plant foods, we can limit our intake of these harmful components 

A recent study published in the Journal of the American Dietitic Association looked at the what happens to these protective and harmful component when the subjects were put on a very-low-fat (10%) vegan diet.  

Where Is The "HEALTHY" Food? PDF Print E-mail

 A few months ago I discussed how a supermarket chain, Hannaford Brothers, self rated the products in their stores with a 3 star rating system.   The rating system awarded products 1, 2, or 3 stars based on the amount of fiber, vitamins, minerals, fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, sugar and sodium.    Of the over 28,000 products analyzed,  24% got either 1, 2 or 3 stars.   In other words, 76% of the products they carried, could not qualify for even 1 star!!  

Considering that in the produce section, 94% of the products passed, that means the average for the rest of the store was even lower than the 24%.    And, if you consider that the 24% included products that got either 1, 2 or 3 stars, how many actually were the healthiest and would have qulified to be awarded all 3 stars? 

Denying Food To The Obese? PDF Print E-mail

While you may not beleive this.....

If you live in the great state of Mississippi and you have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or more, you may be denied service at restaurants soon.

There is a bill working its way through the Mississippi House of Representatives now that would require restaurants to refuse to serve patrons who are obese. The bill would require eateries to keep track of customers BMI's and have scales at the doors. The states Department of Health would be responsible for enforcing compliance, and would revoke business permits for those dining establishments that violated the legislation.
