I Think There’s An Agenda Behind This Article….
Wealthy Americans know less than they think they do about food and nutrition
Socioeconomics play a significant role in attitudes about food – especially concerns about safety and purchasing behavior. And higher income doesn’t always correlate with informed choices. On the contrary, our research shows that affluent Americans tend to overestimate their knowledge about health and nutrition. The latest Food Literacy and Engagement Poll from Michigan State University’s Food@MSU initiative reveals that nearly half of Americans (49 percent) in households earning at least US$50,000 annually believe they know more than the average person about global food systems, while just 28 percent of those earning less are as confident. However, when we surveyed people on a variety of food topics, affluent respondents fared no better, and at times worse, than their lower-earning peers.
Trump vows to back law to protect marijuana industry President Donald Trump has promised to support legislation protecting the marijuana industry in states that have legalized the drug, a move that could lift a threat to the industry made by the U.S. attorney general just three months ago. Republican Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado said Friday that Trump made the pledge to him in a Wednesday night conversation. It marked the latest flip by the president who pledged while he was campaigning to respect states that legalized marijuana but also criticized legalization and implied it should be stopped. Gardner has been pushing to reverse a decision made by Attorney General Jeff Sessions in January that removed prohibitions that kept federal prosecutors from pursuing cases against people who were following pot laws in states such as Colorado that have legalized the drug. Marijuana has been fully legalized in eight states, and 24 states allow some form of marijuana use.
The Definition of Organic Is Evolving
More organic than thou? Rebel farmers create new food label Was your tomato grown in dirt
or water? Organic shoppers might notice additional labels this summer that will give them the answer — and tell them whether their choices align with what a rebellious group of farmers and scientists deem the true spirit of the organic movement. About 15 farmers and scientists from around the country met in Vermont late last month to create the standards for an additional organic certification program, which they plan to roll out nationally to between 20 to 60 farms as a pilot this summer. Under the current U.S. Department of Agriculture program, the organic label means that your tomato has been produced without synthetic substances — with some exceptions — and without certain methods, like genetic engineering. The additional label, which does not yet have a name or wording, would indicate that a tomato, for example, has been grown in soil, and that meat and dairy products came from farms that pasture their animals.
Carrageenan Approved by USDA for use in Organics in Spite of Links to Intestinal Inflammation, Cancer and Diabetes A highly controversial natural food substance, carrageenan, a seaweed derivative used in conventional, “natural,” and some organic foods, was just reapproved by USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue. This move overrides the recommendation of the National Organic Standards Board, an expert industry panel set up by Congress. After hearing from medical and scientific experts describing carrageenan’s link to intestinal inflammation, cancer, and other human health risks, the NOSB voted to remove carrageenan from the list of approved synthetic and non-organic substances for use in organic food production. In a move unprecedented during the last quarter century of organic industry rulemaking, the USDA ignored the NOSB vote in the Federal Register without an opportunity for the public to comment on their decision before it goes into effect.
This Is Just Gross…
Using the bathroom hand dryer just flings poo particles all over you, study finds The next
time you’re done washing your hands in a public restroom, maybe make your next stop the paper towel dispenser. That’s what a group of scientists at the University of Connecticut would advise, anyway. They found out by asking themselves, “How clean are the restrooms where I work?” So they placed bacteria-collecting plates in 36 restrooms throughout the university’s academic health center. The results have been published in the latest issue of Applied and Environmental Microbiology. As it turns out, the hand dryers in public restrooms are blowing more than hot air. Sure, they’re great at saving paper, but they’re also flinging nasty little poo particles all over the place, including onto the hands and faces of those who use them.
Hour 2 – Advanced Medicine with Dr. Rashid Buttar!
Dr. Buttar is back to talk about what’s happening in the world of health news. Here’s what we have in store for you today:
La-la-la: Willfully ignoring facts about our health allows us to avoid taking responsibility for our lives If you are concerned about your health, you’ve probably had to explain your eating choices to family members or friends at some point. Most of us know the feeling of having to tell someone we’re passing on the bacon because of the connection betweenprocessed meats and cancer, only to be greeted with a response like, “Everything causes cancer these days. I don’t believe it.” Or perhaps you’re familiar with this variation: “My grandfather ate bacon every Sunday of his life and he lived to be 99.” People who say these things want to eat bacon, plain and simple. Honestly, it’s hard to blame them, with its smoky flavor and satisfying crunch. They don’t want to believe that modern bacon ingredients like sodium nitrite can cause cancer because that would mean giving it up. The reason this conversation is familiar to so many of us is that people are wired to willfully ignore facts that go against beliefs they’ve held for a long time.
‘One in seven billion’ boy stuns doctors by starting to beat cancer A BOY of eight who was
dying of cancer has stunned doctors by starting on the road to recovery… without any new treatment. Julian Malankowska’s mother believes the “one in seven billion” chance is thanks to putting him on a special diet. The family said they have been given renewed hope after “accepting he was going to die”. Julian was two in 2011 when he was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia – a form of bone cancer that affects white blood cells. He managed to beat the deadly disease three times following several rounds of chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant from a donor in the US. But the cancer returned for a fourth time last June and the family said their world fell apart after being told he would not make it past Christmas. Aneta is convinced a diet, including milk thistle, alkaline water and fresh juices, has contributed towards the improvement.
16 million U.S. adults on prescription stimulants: Study About 16 million U.S. adults are using
prescription stimulants, according to research by the National Institute on Drug Abuse. The findings appear in one of the first wide-ranging surveys of the prevalence and abuse of medications commonly used to treat attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The study, published Monday in the American Journal of Psychiatry, focused on adults 18 and older from the 2015 and 2016 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, comprising 102,000 respondents. The nationally representative survey estimates that 5 million people misuse prescription stimulants, and 400,000 have use disorders. Over half of respondents (56.3 percent) said they use prescription stimulants for cognitive enhancement — to be alert or concentrate — followed by use as a study aid (21.9 percent). About 15.5 percent of respondents said they take the medications to “get high or being hooked,” and only 4.1 percent said they use it for weight loss.
Two common iron supplements may cause cancer A new study finds that two iron compounds, which are used in supplements and food additives, raise levels of a cancer biomarker — even when consumed in low amounts. The new research comes from the Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden, in collaboration with the United Kingdom Medical Research Council and the University of Cambridge, also in the U.K. The scientists — led by Nathalie Scheers, an assistant professor at the Chalmers University of Technology — explain that their research was prompted by older studies that showed that two compounds, called ferric citrate and ferric EDTA, promote tumors in mice.
