Food Addiction Very Serious In America


When someone mentions an addict most of us will probably imagine a junky shooting up in some dark corner of town, but what about those that are addicted to food? Yes food can become quite addictive and certain diets may actually affect your brain in a way that is similar to that of many hardcore drugs.

High fat, high calorie junk foods can become very addictive, and this not only leads to mental problems, but it is also a reason for the rising obesity rate in the States. Along with the unbelievably high rates of obesity, Americans are becoming more likely to develop diabetes, heart disease, and strokes.

A study on rats showed that the high fat, high calorie diet showed similar signs drugs like heroin. These foods satisfy the pleasure center in the brain and after awhile of eating this type of diet, eating becomes compulsive. In fact, even electric shocks were unable to stop their eating. The addiction had developed to the point where they would keep eating despite obvious pain as the joy they obtained from eating would outweigh the pain of the shocks.

While I don’t think that Americans are going to have as much difficulty with food addiction that rats do, I do think that many Americans will not only gain a significant amount of weight and endanger their health; I believe that once that weight is put on, it will be more difficult to lose that weight than ever before.

Water vs. Coke *Updated*

Filed under: boniva,calcium,coca cola,coke,energy,fatigue,osteoporosis,Uncategorized,water — robertprice @ 4:05 pm

For many Americans Coca Cola has become their favorite drink. While this sugary liquid is okay once and a while, too many Americans have completely forgotten about drinking water. While water does not necessarily have that caffeine pick-me-up that coke does, it gives your body a more healthy energy boost. Not to mention water is a lot healthier for your body anyway.
Just to put things in to perspective here are a few statistics you may want to pay very close attention to.

• 75% of all Americans are chronically dehydrated and many have such a weak thirst mechanism that it is often mistaken for hunger.

• Mild dehydration can slow the metabolism up to 3%, but one glass of water can eliminate the desire for a midnight snack.

• Lack of water is the number one cause of daytime fatigue.

• A drop of only 2% in body water can cause troubles with short term memory, problems with basic math, and difficulty focusing on a computer screen.

[Updated From Source]

•Every 240mL of water you drink can decrease your risk of developing bladder cancer by 7%

•Men that drink only 1 or no glasses of water a day are 4 times more likely to develop colorectal cancer than those that drink 4 or more glasses of water every day.

•Women who are not receiving adequate amounts of water daily are almost 5 times (4.7) more likely to develop breast cancer than those who receive proper amounts.

COKE

• Coke can be used to clean many things, for example: Toilet bowls, sinks, corrosion from car battery terminals, rust on car bumpers, and grease from clothes.

• Coke can help loosen a rusted bolt.

• The active ingredient in Coke is Phosphoric acid which can contribute to calcium loss in bones and contributes to osteoporosis.

• Trucks that transport Coca-Cola syrup must place a “highly corrosive materials” sign on the truck.

So next time you go to grab a drink, think about what you’re putting into your body.

Top 5 Foods You Should Eat Daily


Everyone has heard which foods to avoid, but what foods should we eat?


Oranges
– Eating an orange is like taking a wonderful tasting vitamin. Oranges have folic acid, fiber, antioxidants beta-carotene, and vitamin C. On top of all this they also have anticancer effects.


Sweet Potatoes or Yams
– The sweet potato ranked the highest in a nutrition study in 1992. The next highest vegetable was the regular potato with 84 points, while yams and sweet potatoes had 184 points. Impressive! Yams and sweet potatoes (no, they are not the same thing) have fiber, complex carbohydrates, protein, vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, and calcium. Sweet potatoes can be eaten baked, or raw.


Cottage Cheese
– Are you trying to lose weight? Do you have a stomach ache/bowel problem/digestion difficulty? Try cottage cheese! Casein, the slowest digested protein, is the protein found in cottage cheese. Cottage cheese has good bacteria which will keep your intestines healthy and smooth out digestion problems.


Chili Peppers
– Chili peppers are full of capsaicin, an anti-inflammatory which improves circulation. Chili peppers purify your blood, fight ulcers, and prevent prostate cancer. This hot veggie will keep you in shape for a long time.


Carrots
– Carrots improve your vision. This is because the beta-carotene in your body is converted to vitamin A with the help of carrots, and your eyes absorb this new vitamin A and make it into a night vision pigment. Carrots contain beta-carotene which improves your cells communication and can ultimately help prevent cancer cells from forming; beta-carotene also helps prevent skin diseases . Alpha-carotene is also found in abundance in carrots. Alpha-carotene helps prevent tumors.

Foods That Will Make You Happy


For some of us Depression is a very serious issue that continually arises. However, for most of us we occasionally just feel sad or angry, or don’t really feel anything. Yet, there are some ways to increase our general happiness. The key to this isn’t medication, and it doesn’t require you to do yoga for 5 hours every day. In fact, it is a rather simple method of obtaining happiness or at least boosting that mood for awhile, watch what you eat.

No, I don’t mean you necessarily have to eat healthy, although I’m sure that would also make you a happier person anyway. Watch what you’re putting into your body because there are some foods that can actually increase you levels of happiness. So if you’re feeling a little down try some of these for a boost.

Sunflower Seeds – The folate and magnesium found in sunflower seeds play an enormous role in regulating your mood. In fact, magnesium deficiency often results in fatigue, nervousness, and anxiety and has often been linked to mood disorders. Magnesium has also been proven to help in the treatment of depression, suicidal tendencies, anxiety, irritability, and insomnia.

Bananas – A banana will provide you with an energy boost due to the fructose. The fiber will help keep your energy balanced. Bananas will also provide you with carbohydrates, and vitamin B6, which both help in making serotonin.

Dark Chocolate – Chocolate can play a huge factor on mood control. There are many different substances found in chocolate that are known to boost one’s mood. For example, fat, sugar, caffeine, phenylethylamine, flavonols, theobromine, and tryptophan, are all found in chocolate. Not to mention just the taste and texture of chocolate can make a person very happy.

Eggs – Eggs help balance your emotions and help boost energy levels. Additionally, eggs can help symptoms of depression and even lessen memory problems.

Interesting Facts About the Human Body

Filed under: colds,color blind,crying,sneezing,tears,Uncategorized — robertprice @ 4:49 pm

Body functions and body parts are much more interesting and complex than they are thought to be.

Tears – Tears are not only made up of water. They also have proteins, and antibodies, and other antiviral substances. Drinking a glass of tears is much healthier than drinking a glass of water. In the average person’s life each eye will produce 70 gallons of tears.

Snoring – Snoring usually occurs due to being overweight, smoking, and consuming alcohol. Having allergies can also cause snoring. Snoring can be soft (50 dB – the sound level of a quiet street) or loud (100 dB – the sound level of a diesel truck). For 70 percent of snorers, they have a hereditary link which may be the cause or contribute to their snoring. Children who snore may have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

Eyes – Babies are color blind when they are born. This lasts a few months before their eyes begin to adjust to color. Our eyebrows are there to prevent sweat from entering our eyes. Human eyes can tell apart 500 different shades of the gray.

The Mouth – The tongue is the strongest and most flexible muscle in the body. Everyone has their own one of a kind tongue print (just like fingerprints). A human’s mouth has more bacteria than a dog’s mouth. The tongue heals faster than any other part of the body. In a person’s average lifetime their mouth produces enough saliva to fill two swimming pools (25, 000 quarts).

Sneezing – Sneezes can travel up to 100 km per hour. Sneezes can be caused by many different things. Dust, allergies, mold, smoke, and sexual arousal are said to cause sneezing. In other countries sneezes are thought to be a sign of healthiness (in India), or thought to mean that someone is being talked about behind their back (Japan).
