Fast Food Consumption Linked With Higher Asthma, Eczema Risk: Study

Fast Food Consumption Linked With Higher Asthma, Eczema Risk: Study

Commented Jan 16, 2013 at 17:12:00 in Healthy Living

“Asthma is an inflammatory disorder, typically of mixed origin, oftentimes accompanied by hayfever and/or eczema: Environment and nutrition both usually contribute. It therefore follows that good nutrition and avoiding allergens will improve, even reverse these conditions, which is exactly what we see -- I have had many patients in my practice stop their inhalers or/and anti-histamines because they made these changes.”

“The reason we are "so surprised" is that we have no memory for things wed don't want to remember. #Stress, whether physical or mental, is an #inflammatory agent. The Whitehall study in the UK, starting in the 1960'es and ongoing, resoundingly proves that the stress of being subordinate and underpaid is detrimental to one's health, with particular emphasis on cardiovascular health.”

“It is well established science that inflammation happens instantly with a bad meal. Studies by Mohanty, Festa, Liu and others from the early 2000's show this independently. . What we can detect and measure after a single meal is inflammatory activity, not instant destruction. Arteriosclerotic destruction is a long process And yes, we see fatty streaks in arteries of children these days-
My problem is that this information makes periodic "news" we are not necessarily thrilled about it, and nothing much changes --”

“This lady sounds like an end-stage patient rather than a tourist, who would not die from staying on in Hungary. The real tragedy here is that our society produces patients like her. She is a high-risk patient and passenger, needs two seats and extreme seat belt extensions possibly not even available. The airline industry is predicated upon lifting weight against gravity, and luggage is restricted. Turning the situation around: If there are no such restrictions, can anyone then claim of free luggage/seating against the weight they save an airline by being normal/under weight? And who is to bear the risk of the high risk patient/tourist? These are issues that will come up as we grow fatter and sicker -”

“Yes provided that a beer belly is a healthy thing - Beer has calories all right- from maltose, the highest GI sugar on (actually off) the chart, at GI 105 - those are hardly comparable with the calories from milk sugar at GI 40 and protein and calcium as main nutrients.
If you ingest more sugar than you burn off at the time, it stacks up in your liver and turns into fat and cholesterol - so might want to weigh the benefit equation so to speak -”

Who's Really Serious About Fixing Health Care?

Commented Nov 5, 2012 at 17:57:16 in TED Weekends

“The real elephant in the room is the system itself starting with the disease process. Since we don't understand illnesses, we cannot get beyond throwing ever more pharmaceuticals and remedies at people to make everyone a chronic patient, because this is " what the patient wants". It is also what the doctor wants, believe me: No doctor refers patients to me to get rid of diabetes-
Problem is, there is not enough money in this land to pay for this system. We need to get that.
The system needs to accept the facts and incentivize health-based, not illness-based care for patient and doctor alike.”

“Paleolithic fat was difficult to come by, because there really are no fat wild land animals. The reason might be that they have to run faster than the diner not to become dinner -
The exception is marine animals, that sustained the Inuit on a high marine fat diet, healthy because of its high content of omega 3.”

“Wild animals don't have to BE "fat" for their tissues to contain fat, especially the non-muscle tissues.”

ddanimal on Oct 29, 2012 at 16:20:04

“Wrong. All wild animals have substantial fat. It's just not in the muscle meats.”

ddanimal on Oct 29, 2012 at 16:13:50

“Wrong. Fat was a critical mainstay of Paleolithic diets. All wild animals have substantial fat. It's just that it not marbled in the meat. It's in the bone marrow, brain, and near the spine. Fat was valued highly.”

getsit on Oct 29, 2012 at 15:24:40

“I think our diet is majorly deficient in Omega3s. The fat on game (what fat there is) is rich in omega3s and our stoneage ancestors ate bugs. I think most of the fat in their diets would have come from nuts and seeds and bugs.

This is the reason we really need to change the way we raise our meat and what we feed them to "fatten" then up.”

“Corn syrup contains approxomately  the same proportions of Glucose-Fructose as table sugar (Sucrose), whether it is  "high fructose" i.e.  55% fructose to 45% glucose,  or regular corn syrup, with  45% fructose and 55% glucose.”

Umm - not really on Oct 22, 2012 at 14:18:31

“No, "corn syrup" is the syrup that is derived first from the starch in corn and is almost 100% glucose.  "High fructose corn syrup" contains the glucose/fructose blend.  It may be a matter of 'semantics' in the different countries, but in the U.S. "corn syrup" and "high fructose corn syrup" are very different products.”
