How Much Lead Is in Organic Chicken Soup (Bone Broth)?
These researchers were concerned that the boiling of farm animals’ bones might release lead into the broth. So, they made three types of organic chicken broth, one with the bones, one with just the meat, and one with the skin and cartilage. All the soups exceeded the maximum allowable dose level for lead, even the boneless. Surprisingly, the skin and cartilage were the worst, exceeding the safety level per one cup serving by like 475%.
How to Prevent Alzheimer’s with Diet
If you look across multiple countries, you see a similar pattern, with “the most important dietary link to Alzheimer’s appearing to be meat consumption, with eggs and high-fat dairy also maybe contributing.” There appears to be a really tight correlation between Alzheimer’s and per capita meat supply. And, then, studies within countries uncover similar findings, with Alzheimer’s and cognitive decline associated with meaty, sweetie, fatty diets, whereas most plant foods are associated with risk reduction.
Should Women with Fibroids Avoid Soy?
Soy intake was only associated with 27% breast cancer risk reduction in people with normal BRCA genes, but a 73% risk reduction in carriers of BRCA gene mutations. So, a healthy diet may be particularly important in those at high genetic risk. Meat consumption, for example, was linked to twice as much risk in those with BRCA mutations, 97% increased risk, instead of just 41% increased risk of breast cancer in those with normal BRCA genes.
Are Sports Drinks Safe and Effective?
The adage “drink according to thirst.” So, these “don’t wait until you feel thirsty” statements you hear may actually be doing more harm than good, and this has been known since the early 90’s.” The American College of Sports Medicine instead started telling athletes they should drink ‘as much as tolerable’ during exercise. And, what followed was an epidemic of cases of hyponatremia.
The Benefits of Kale and Cabbage for Cholesterol
Kale is a best-of-all-worlds food, low in calories and packed to the hilt with nutrition, vitamins, minerals, anti-inflammatory compounds, antioxidant phytonutrients, you name it. No surprise, then, given its “high antioxidant capacity of kale showed a protective effect on the oxidation of LDL even at low concentrations.
