How Fruits and Vegetables Can Treat Asthma | NutritionFacts.org

In my video Preventing Asthma With Fruits and Vegetables, I highlighted an international study of asthma and allergies involving more than a million kids. The study found a consistent inverse relationship between prevalence rates of asthma, allergies, and eczema and the intake of plants, starch, grains, and vegetables. Researchers speculated “over a decade ago that if these findings could be generalized, and if the average daily consumption of these foods increased, an important decrease in symptom prevalence could be achieved.” No need to speculate any more, though, because plants were finally put to the test.

The McDougall Newsletter

Last week’s (June 23/24, 2015) “Opinion” piece in the Journal of the American Medical Association about the 2015 US Dietary Guidelines lifting the ban on total dietary fat meets my criterion for “damned lies.” The authors applaud the “elimination of dietary cholesterol as a ‘nutrient of concern’…and the absence of an upper limit on total fat consumption” in the updated guidelines. The facts Drs. Mozaffarian and Ludwig provide to support their opinions are flawed and favor the food industries. Meat, poultry, dairy, and eggs are the primary dietary sources of cholesterol and fat for Americans. Vegetable oils are the next largest source of dietary fat. Fat is the “metabolic dollar” stored in the body for future energy needs, crucial for survival during times of food shortages. “The fat you eat is the fat you wear,”regardless of the source. “Good fat,” like olive oil, is no more attractively worn around people’s waistlines than “bad fat” from lard.

How Fruits and Vegetables Can Prevent Asthma | NutritionFacts.org

Asthma is the most common chronic disease in children and the prevalence is increasing around the world. Despite this, most research dollars are spent on adult chronic disease. “One might ask,” a group of researchers posited “whether this is because our politicians and senior administrators feel themselves to be more likely to suffer from the latter, and thus ignore allergic diseases as they mostly impact children and young adults” – who don’t vote.

DIY condiments

One of my favorite things about delicious, real food is the myriad ways I can dress up any dish with a rainbow of condiments. Now, we are all familiar with the electric yellow of store-bought mustard and deep, consistently brick red of bottled ketchup. But the daydreams that really get my mouth watering involve delicately flavored ground mustard seed, homemade mayo from farm-fresh eggs and zingy ketchups spiced just the way I like them.

Our Tax Dollars Subsidize Unhealthy Foods | NutritionFacts.org

Why do food companies sell junk? Because unhealthy commodities are highly profitable. This is in part because of their “low production cost, long shelf-life, and high retail value,” which create perverse incentives for industries to market and sell more junk. In a study highlighted in my video, Taxpayer Subsidies for Unhealthy Foods, researchers at the University of Cambridge stated, “Coca-Cola’s net profit margins, for example, are about a quarter of the retail price, making soft drink production, alongside tobacco production, among the most profitable industrial activities in the world.” One of the reasons production costs are so low is that we tax-payers subsidize it.

Reducing Arsenic in Chicken and Rice | NutritionFacts.org

In 2013, Maryland became the first state to ban the feeding of an arsenic-containing drug to chickens. This arsenic-containing drug is used to control parasites and gives chicken meat an “appealing pink color.” In 2011, the FDA found that the livers of chickens fed this drug had elevated levels of inorganic arsenic, a known human carcinogen. In response, the drug’s manufacturer, Pfizer, voluntarily pulled the drug off the U.S. market. However, it’s still sold overseas—including to places that continue to export chicken back to us—and a similar arsenic-containing drug for use in poultry is still available in the United States. The Maryland ban was still some help, though; it kept Maryland farmers from using stockpiles of the drug.
