Inhibiting Platelet Activation with Tomato Seeds | NutritionFacts.org

In the prevention of cardiovascular disease, the consumption of fruits and vegetables is crucial. Preventing the oxidation of cholesterol may be one of the mechanisms by which fruits and vegetables reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes.

Preventing Alzheimer’s Disease with Diet | NutritionFacts.org

Up to half of Alzheimer’s cases may be attributable to just seven risk factors shown in my video, Preventing Alzheimer’s with Lifestyle Changes, which include diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, exercise, smoking, depression, and mental exercise; and that’s not including diet because there are so many dietary factors that researchers couldn’t fit them into their model. But, they acknowledged that diet might be another important modifiable risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease. In particular, there is growing evidence that dietary patterns, such as the Mediterranean diet, are associated with lower Alzheimer’s risk, as well as slower cognitive decline, but which constituents of the Mediterranean diet are responsible?

6 Glorious Benefits Of Sweating | Care2 Healthy Living

It’s really a shame that we live in a time and place in which we malign the natural act of sweating. The body is an incredible machine that (most of the time) knows what it is doing – we sweat for a reason, and in fact, we sweat for a number of reasons! But western culture has decided that sweating is icky. Whether we disdain perspiration because of old elitist ideas about leisure versus work, or whether it’s the product of antiperspirant marketing campaigns designed to sweat- and stink-shame the sweaty masses, or for whatever reason … few of us rarely wave our perspiration flag with vigor.

Berries vs. Pesticides in Parkinson’s Disease | NutritionFacts.org

In the original description of Parkinson’s disease, by none other than Dr. James Parkinson himself, he described a characteristic feature of the disease: constipation—torpid or lethargic bowels, which may precede the diagnosis by many years. In fact, bowel movement frequency may be predictive. Men with less than daily bowel movements were four times more likely to develop Parkinson’s an average of 12 years later. Now, this could just be a really early symptom of the disease, tied to decreased water intake. Many Parkinson’s patients report never really feeling very thirsty; maybe that led to the constipation. Or, alternately, the constipation may increase the risk of Parkinson’s disease, as constipation results in a longer stay of the waste in the bowel, and, thus, more absorption of potential neurotoxicants—neurotoxins from the diet.

Matcha Vs. Green Tea | Care2 Healthy Living

With traditional teas, like green tea, leaves are steeped in hot water to produce the drink. This only provides a diluted concentration of the nutrients inside the plant. When using matcha powder, however, the entire leaf is consumed and therefore beverages made with matcha reap all the nutritional and antioxidant values inherent in tea.

Sodium and Arterial Function: A-salting our Endothelium | NutritionFacts.org

If you put people on a low-salt diet (meaning only getting twice as much sodium as they need), as opposed to a usual salt diet (where they’re getting five times more), you get a significant improvement in arterial function.

Can Morbid Obesity Be Reversed Through Diet? | NutritionFacts.org

Dr. Walter Kempner introduced the first comprehensive dietary program to treat chronic kidney disease, and in doing so, also revolutionized the treatment of other disorders, including obesity. Kempner was Professor Emeritus of Medicine at Duke, where he came up with the so-called “rice diet,” which basically consisted of rice, sugar, fruit, and fruit juices. Extremely low-sodium, low-fat, no animal fat, no cholesterol, no animal protein. The sugar was added as a source of calories so people wouldn’t lose too much weight. But some people need to lose weight; so, he started treating obese patients with a lower calorie version o
