Why Cheese Is More Addictive Than Ice Cream, Cookies, Chips And Chocolate

The following is an excerpt from The Cheese Trap: How Breaking a Surprising Addiction Will Help You Lose Weight, Gain Energy, and Get Healthy, which was released by Hachette Book Group. Which foods do you find most addictive? That’s the question University of Michigan researchers asked. The idea was, which foods lead you to lose control over how much you eat? Which ones are hard to limit? Which ones do you eat despite negative consequences? The researchers surveyed 384 people and here is what they found: Problem food #5 is ice cream. Problem food #4 is cookies. Chips and chocolate were tied for #3 and #2. But the most problematic food of all was — drum roll, please — pizza.

What To Do About Lactose Intolerance?

Lactose intolerance is one of the most common food allergies; symptoms range from mild discomfort to extreme intestinal pain. Complete avoidance of dairy is perhaps the easiest way to avoid these problems, especially for young children. However, it might not be the only option. According to a recent study, infants with lactose intolerance, when given a specific probiotic strain, were able to tolerate lactose and even reverse their cow’s milk allergy. Does Lactobacillus rhamnosus Combat Lactose Intolerance? The specific strain that shows promise in lactose intolerance is Lactobacillus rhamnosus, a Gram-positive anaerobe probiotic bacteria. When administered to lactose-intolerant infants, the bacteria colonized the intestinal tract and produced positive changes within the gut microbiota.

Milk Does Not Do A Body Good – Massive New Study Says

Arjun Walia, Collective-Evolution Waking Times Milk seems to be making its way through various stages of truth, especially within the past couple of years. Like many other examples, what we once thought to be healthy for us to consume is turning out to be the exact opposite. A large study coming from researchers at the Uppsala University in Sweden found that drinking milk led to an increased mortality rate and actually made bones more prone to fracturing, not less.(1) The study was recently published in the peer reviewed British Medical Journal, and was specifically conducted to examine whether high milk consumption is associated with mortality and fractures in both men and women. The study took place across three different counties in Sweden, and used data from two large Swedish cohorts, one with 61,433 women… Read More

Why Butter Is Better

by Sally Fallon and Mary G. Enig, PhD When the fabricated food folks and apologists for the corporate farm realized that they couldn”t block America”s growing interest in diet and nutrition, a movement that would ultimately put an end to America”s biggest and most monopolistic industries, they infiltrated the movement and put a few sinister twists on information going out to the public. Item number one in the disinformation campaign was the assertion that naturally saturated fats from animal sources are the root cause of the current heart disease and cancer plague. Butter bore the brunt of the attack, and was accused of terrible crimes. The Diet Dictocrats told us that it was better to switch to polyunsaturated margarine and most Americans did. Butter all but disappeared from our tables, shunned… Read More
