Ode to Chocolate

Ode to Chocolate

Guest Blogger Contribution.
Ah chocolate, oh dark mystery of delight; on my tongue, the pleasure, on my hips, the blight. From far away in hot, tropical climes; thou art gathered by slaves, but I can pretend “Not mine!” Thy narcotics lull my senses into blissful transport; away from my problems, an escapist passport! Bitter as gall...

Avoiding Fried Foods Reduces Cancer Risk

Avoiding Fried Foods Reduces Cancer Risk

"Would you like fries with that?" You may want to skip fried foods the next time you eat out after seeing the research linking these foods to cancer development. Dr. Michael Greger demonstrates in the video below, (as well as the following highlighted link) how deep fried foods are associated with cancers of the breast, pancreas, lung, mouth and throat, esophagus, larynx, kidney, ovary, and the endometrial lining of the uterus. Researchers also discovered that "...eating French fries, fried chicken, fried fish, and doughnuts was associated with about a third greater odds of prostate cancer, and after stratifying for tumor aggressiveness, found even slightly stronger associations with more aggressive disease, suggesting that regular intake of deep-fried foods may contribute to progression of prostate cancer as well."

Mediterranean Diet - Healthy IN SPITE OF Olive Oil

Mediterranean Diet - Healthy IN SPITE OF Olive Oil

Think of a heart healthy diet, and I bet the Mediterranean Diet comes to mind. Its popularity comes from the foods that were once typically eaten in countries surrounding the Mediterranean Sea.

Looking back at the data collected from the 1950s-1960s, we see that the Mediterranean Diet was based largely on whole plant foods, with the emphasis on fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, beans, legumes, whole grains and breads. Olive oil, fish and wine were an additional component to this diet. Highly processed foods and unhealthy hydrogenated and saturated fats such as butter and coconut oil were avoided as well as salt and sweets. Eggs, meat, and dairy were eaten in limited amounts. Exercise was also an important constituent of the Mediterranean diet. Americans looking for a "heart healthy" diet believe they are consuming the Mediterraniean diet by pouring olive oil on their food and adding a glass of wine to their meals.
