Subject: High Fiber Diet May Reduce Risk of Dementia

A high fiber diet may reduce the risk of developing dementia, according to a study published in the journal Neurology. The study found that people who ate the most fiber were 30% less likely to develop dementia than those who ate the least fiber. This is an important discovery, as dementia is becoming increasingly common around the world. There are currently about 47 million people living with dementia, and this number is expected to grow to 135 million by 2050.

What is dementia and what are the symptoms?

Dementia is a general term for a decline in mental ability due to disease or injury. symptoms can vary greatly from person to person, but may include problems with memory, mood, and thinking. People with dementia may have difficulty remembering recent events or familiar faces, and they may become confused about time and place. They may also have trouble completing familiar tasks, such as cooking a meal or getting dressed. As the disease progresses, people with dementia may lose the ability to communicate or take care of themselves. Dementia is not a normal part of aging, and it can affect people of all ages. There is no one test that can diagnose dementia, and doctors often use a combination of medical tests, brain scans, and neurological exams to make a diagnosis. There is no cure for dementia, but there are treatments that can help people manage the symptoms and improve their quality of life.

What causes dementia?

Dementia is a complex neurological disorder with no known underlying cause. While some theories suggest that environmental factors such as exposure to certain toxins or injuries may play a role, the exact mechanisms underlying dementia remain uncertain. Some researchers have proposed that dementia may be related to problems in the functioning of certain proteins in the brain, while others have suggested that chronic inflammation may also be involved. However, there is still much work to be done in terms of understanding the biological mechanisms underlying this debilitating and often devastating illness. Ultimately, identifying the precise causes of dementia will help inform more targeted and effective treatments for this disease, allowing those affected by it to live fuller and healthier lives.

How can a high fiber diet reduce the risk of developing dementia?

A diet rich in fiber has been linked with a reduced risk of developing dementia. Fiber is a type of carbohydrate that the body cannot digest, and it is found in plant-based foods such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Foods high in fiber are known to promote gut health, and some studies have suggested that gut inflammation may play a role in the development of dementia. In addition, fiber-rich foods tend to be high in antioxidants and other nutrients that have been linked with brain health. For these reasons, increasing your intake of fiber-rich foods may help to reduce your risk of developing dementia.

What are some good sources of fiber?

There are many good sources of fiber, including both plant-based and animal-based foods. Psyllium husk, which is made from the soluble fibers found in the seeds of a Mediterranean shrub called Plantago ovata, is a popular option due to its high concentration of dietary fiber and other nutrients. Inulin, meanwhile, is a type of carbohydrate that is naturally found in many fruits, vegetables, and legumes. Both psyllium husk and inulin are excellent sources of nutrition that can help promote good digestive health and overall well-being. Other common sources of dietary fiber include whole grains like oats and barley, as well as beans, lentils, nuts, and seeds. Whether you are looking for plant-based or animal-based sources of fiber, there are plenty of options out there to suit your needs.

How much fiber should you eat each day?

There is no single answer to the question of how much fiber you should eat each day. The amount of fiber that your body needs will depend on a number of factors, including your age, sex, and overall health status. In general, most health experts recommend consuming between 25 and 35 grams of fiber per day. This can typically be achieved by eating a balanced diet that includes a variety of fiber-rich foods, including fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, whole grains, and legumes. Furthermore, it is important to remember that fiber needs can vary depending on your symptoms or underlying condition. So if you are experiencing any gastrointestinal issues or other health concerns, it is best to consult with your doctor to determine the right amount of dietary fiber for your body.

Are there any Risks associated with eating a high fiber diet?

While fiber is an essential part of a healthy diet, it is important to be aware of the potential Risks associated with eating too much fiber. Fiber is a type of carbohydrate that the body cannot digest, and it is typically found in plant-based foods such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. When fiber is not broken down by the body, it can bind to other nutrients and substances in the digestive tract and cause them to be eliminated from the body before they are absorbed. This can lead to nutrient deficiencies and other health problems. In addition, consuming large amounts of fiber can also cause bloating and gas.

How can you prevent dementia from developing?

There is no one definitive cause of dementia, but there are a number of risk factors that have been identified as contributing to its development. These can include things like a genetic predisposition, lifestyle factors like drinking and smoking, and certain health conditions. Because these risk factors can vary widely from person to person, there is no one strategy that will prevent dementia in everyone. However, there are some general measures that anyone can take to lower their risk of developing dementia. These might include maintaining healthy eating habits, staying physically active, and avoiding excessive exposure to environmental toxins. Additionally, early diagnosis and treatment for any existing health conditions can also play an important role in reducing the likelihood of dementia. By taking these proactive steps, it is possible to greatly reduce your risk of developing this debilitating condition.

Vitamins and Dementia

Some studies have suggested that certain vitamins may help to prevent dementia. Vitamin B6, B12, and folic acid are involved in the metabolism of homocysteine, a substance that has been linked to an increased risk of Alzheimer's disease. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that helps to protect cells from damage, and it has been suggested that this may help to slow the progression of dementia.

Fruits and vegetables can help the body combat dementia

Recent studies have suggested that diet may also play a role in the development of dementia. In particular, fruits and vegetables appear to offer some protection against the disease. The antioxidants found in these foods help to fight inflammation and damage to cells, both of which are thought to contribute to the development of dementia. In addition, fruits and vegetables are a good source of vitamins and minerals, which are essential for brain health. Thus, incorporating more fruits and vegetables into your diet may help to reduce your risk of developing dementia.

Subject: Study shows that vitamin D can help lower your risk of Type 2diabetes





Many people are frightened by the prospect of type 2 diabetes given all the risks that it comes with which include regular finger pricks for tests, and a host of complications for diseases like kidney and liver damage, and a higher risk of having stroke or heart disease. Preventing type 2 diabetes is then essential and recent studies have shown that vitamin D can help in that regard. The researchers already knew that vitamin D can help with insulin sensitivity and pancrease beta cells function so they wanted to find out the link between vitamin D and blood glucose levels. 680 women between the ages of 35 and 74 were experimented upon and they were given vitamin D supplementation and exposure to sunlight. They found a negative association between vitamin D and blood glucose level meaning that vitamin D, especially being exposed to sunlight, reduced the levels of glucose in the blood. They also found that vitamin D deficiency was associated with a high level of glucose in the blood. This present study was found to correlate with other studies between vitamin D presence in the body and glucose levels.

Key Takeaways:

  • Having type 2 diabetes is a frightening prospect because the condition entails a lot of complications like regular finger pricks for tests.
  • Since they already know that vitamin D can help one with insulin sensitivity and the function of pancreatic beta cells, the researchers wanted to find out the link.
  • 680 women were studied and they found that those who had high levels of vitamin D due to sunlight and supplementation had lower levels of blood glucose.

"Specifically, those who had high levels of vitamin D enjoyed a 55 percent lower chance of developing type 2 diabetes, a 51 percent lower change of metabolic syndrome, and a 33 percent lower risk of developing cardiovascular disease."

Broccoli is loaded with anti-aging ingredients such as antioxidants and collagen. Broccoli is known for its nutrition as it is packed with vitamins A and C as well as calcium and iron. The body uses vitamin C to produce collagen, which affects the outward appearance of people. The plant's antioxidants can work as an anti-inflammatory for the body, and they also get rid of free radicals which helps lessen the risks of oxidation in your cells and tissues.

Key Takeaways:

  • Broccoli is a superfood that contains antioxidant and collagen to prevent aging.
  • Collagen maintains your hair, skin, and nails and requires a lot of Vitamin C, which is one of the main nutrients in broccoli.
  • For the maximum amount of Vitamin C, you should eat raw broccoli, or steam cook it if you want it hot.

"A member of the cruciferous vegetable family, broccoli is completely edible from the crowded clusters of dark green florets at its top to the very tip of its stem. It provides a lot of nutrition, being filled with vitamin A and vitamin C, and containing large amounts of calcium and iron."

Subject: For the men: Multivitamins can keep heart disease at bay





When one gets insufficient nutrients from the diet, taking multivitamins can be a healthy way to improve this. A recent study has shown that men who take multivitamins a lot are less prone to diseases related to the heart such as stroke and even death related to cardiovascular diseases. But how can cardiovascular diseases be prevented using multivitamins? There are few studies in this direction although a lot of studies have been done on the health benefits of multivitamins. That is why a team of researchers in the US embarked on a study of the incidence of multivitamin usage on major cardiovascular diseases like stroke, heart attack, and cardiovascular death. The study was a long term prospective study. The study was conducted between 1982 and 1995 using 18,530 healthy men that were aged from 40 years and above who the researchers followed. The participants reported their lifestyle habits and as well as their intake of certain foods. Throughout the follow up study, there were only 1,697 reported cases of cardiovascular diseases. This made the researchers to conclude that taking multivitamins means a reduced risk to cardiovascular diseases. It is then appropriate for one to choose the right kind of supplements to improve the diet.

Key Takeaways:

  • When one suspects that he is not getting the full nutrients that his body needs on a daily basis, taking quality multivitamins is necessary.
  • According to a recent study that was done on multivitamins, men who have taken them for a long time have lower risks of stroke and cardiovascular diseases.
  • Many persons know of the important role of multivitamins in improving and maintaining health, but little research has been done on its role on cardiovascular disease.

"In conducting the study, the research team followed 18,530 healthy men aged 40 years old or over from 1982 to 1995. The participants were initially enrolled from the Physicians’ Health Study I cohort"

Subject: Reduce the effects of chemotherapy with safflower seeds





Chemotherapy which is often shortened to chemo is the use of drugs to eliminate and reduce cancer cells. Because of its systemic effects and ability to kill cancer cells despite the site they are found, it has been widely used in conventional medicine and oncology to fight cancer. But the treatment is not without risks since it can include long term damage to sensitive organs in the body like the lungs, heart, and kidneys. A recent study that was published in the American Journal of Chinese Medicine took a look at the effect of chemotherapy on the kidneys. They studied the effectiveness of safflower seeds against the side effects of cisplatin, a chemotherapy drug used against cancer. They used animal models and compared the effect on damages to the kidneys. Cisplatin is not only used to treat cancer, it is used to prevent the spread of cancer to other parts of the body. It has some side effects which include nausea, vomiting, hair loss, dry skin, and hiccups. It is advisable that pregnant women and breastfeeding women not take it because it can harm the baby. When safflower seeds effect were studied, there were remarkable results discovered leading to the conclusion that safflower seeds were effective in reducing the effects of renal damage caused by cisplatin.

Key Takeaways:

  • Chemotherapy has a long history and it is often shortened to chemo. It involves the use of drugs in order to kill or remove cancer cells.
  • Chemotherapy is used in oncology and conventional medicine as the primary treatment against cancer because of its systemic effects and its ability to be quick in destroying cancer cells.
  • A study that was published in a Chinese journal looked at the side effects of chemotherapy treatment on the kidneys and ways to reduce the damage.

"The treatment, despite being touted as “effective against many forms of cancer,” isn’t without risk, which can include both acute and long-term damage to organs like the lungs, heart, nerves, and kidneys."

Subject: How Does Excess Sugar Affect The Brain?





Excess sugar intake is unambiguously harmful to the body and the brain. In addition to widely understood risks like diabetes and obesity, elevated blood sugar can produce anxiety and interfere with emotions and mood. Eating too much sugar can also impact your brain’s reward-response system in ways that make you hungrier and more prone to overeating. High blood sugar can also constrict blood vessels, contributing to impaired cognitive functioning. Eating more fresh fruit as a substitute for added sugar and DRINKING more water can help reduce sugar levels in the brain.

Key Takeaways:

  • Too much sugar can be addictive to the brain and cause chemical imbalances.
  • Having too much sugar in the system can impair cognitive skills and processes
  • High glucose levels can damage the circulatory system both in the brain and thorough the body

"Excess sugar intake does damages our bodies in more ways than one."

Gum disease and poor oral health are both associated with a number of serious health risks on top of its basic symptoms like red, swollen gums and sensitive teeth. Gum disease is correlated strongly with heart disease, although the exact causative agent isn’t well understood. Bad oral health is also strongly associated with higher cancer risk, possibly because of the associated inflammation, or perhaps due to compounds created by mouth bacteria. There may even be a link with Alzheimer’s, as bacteria found in the mouth are often also found in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients.

Key Takeaways:

  • Researchers believe that it is possible for oral bacteria to leech into the bloodstream, thereby causing cardiovascular infection.
  • Other adherents to the cardiovascular disease created by poor oral health bandwagon believe that gum inflammation can escalate to systemic body-wide inflammation.
  • Data also suggests that there is a strong correlation between poor oral health and the onset of cancer.

"Gum disease is a frustrating and painful enough condition on its own. Common signs and symptoms include bloody, red, painful, and swollen gums, bad breath, tooth sensitivity, and pain with chewing."

Subject: Why a little sun makes us feel so good





Who doesn't like basking in the rays of sunshine on a nice summer day? Since sunlight has the natural ability to raise serotonin levels, it naturally has the ability to regulate and improve your mood. Not getting enough exposure to sunlight on a regular basis can actually lead to the same harmful side effects that are associated with obesity and smoking. UV exposure is especially important for those who are impacted by seasonal affective disorder (SAD), even if it is received in an artificial setting.

Key Takeaways:

  • UVB radiation from sunlight is what causes the human body to synthesize critical vitamin D.
  • Vitamin D propels genes in the human body that aid in regulating the immune system and in releasing neurotransmitters in the brain.
  • One of the neurotransmitters directly impacted by vitamin D is serotonin, the lack of which is highly implicated in an array of mood disorders.

"A recent study, found that underexposure to sun carried significant risks, similar to smoking, obesity, and being sedentary."

Endocrine-disrupting chemicals such as BPA are a group of over 80,000 manufactured chemicals that are present within the products that we use on a consistent basis. These chemicals can unfortunately lead to many health implications such as cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. Studies have even shown that those who are exposed to higher levels of EDCs are more prone to developing Vitamin D deficiencies. All of these harmful health risks show just how dangerous these man-made chemicals can be to our bodies.

Key Takeaways:

  • It has been revealed that countless times Big businesses can make the government to approve their toxic chemicals and their true sinister nature is known after a long time.
  • As a nutrient, Vitamin D has a lot of uses for the body. It promotes bone health, and benefits the brain and immune system.
  • After conducting 1300 studies on endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDC), the endocrine society has found that these EDCs can contribute to infertility, obesity, diabetes, and neurological problems.

"But recent research has shown that the hazards of BPA and other endocrine disruptors can even cause vitamin D deficiency — which can cause a whole host of other health issues."

Subject: Is Fluoride Bad for You? It’s Not Just in the Water





The benefits and risks of fluoride has been a subject of much contention since the 1960’s when it was added to the public water supply in the US and several other countries, though no studies have been shown to prove this fact. . According to the CDC, fluoride helps prevent cavities. Those against fluoride maintain that fluoride is dangerous, and can cause damaging effects to living organisms. This claim is supported by the fact that the type of fluoride in drinking water, sodium fluoride, was considered as industrial toxic waste.

Key Takeaways:

  • There has been a debate going on since the 1960s over whether or not fluoride is safe when added to public water supplies and/or as a dental product.
  • The Centers of Disease Control claim that fluoride added to community water supplies is largely responsible for a significant decrease in cavities in the U.S.
  • According to a study by the National Research Council, infants and young children may be receiving too much fluoridated water on a daily basis for their body weight.

"But when we look at the studies that have been done, we found that many of these questions are unsettled and we have much less information than we should, considering how long this [fluoridation] has been going on. I think that’s why fluoridation is still being challenged so many years after it began. In the face of ignorance, controversy is rampant."

Subject: What Happens to Your Brain When You Go on a Diet





People often go on diets because they want to lose weight. A good way to diet is by just substituting what you eat with healthier things. It's not good to eat much less, though, because your body needs certain nutrients and a certain amount of calories. This tells you what can happen to your brain if you do choose to diet. It might make you think a bit before doing so or at least before choosing an extreme one.

Key Takeaways:

  • Body weight is regulated by the brain and this is why diets don't work.When you are on a diet and your weight starts to change, your brain gets this signal and pushes back to maintain the old weight.
  • The hypothalamus in your brain controls your body temperature and acts as a thermostat but it also regulates body fat. Your brain establishes, what is referred to, as a set point weight.
  • To lower your set point weight over time, eat a healthy diet of unrefined, lower calorie and simple foods. Plus, lower stress and exercise. This will help lower and maintain your weight.

"In fact, though the risks of yo-yo dieting have been contested, one 2016 study found that repeatedly going through these starvation cycles prompts your body to gain more weight."

While cinnamon has been linked to many body benefits, such as regulating blood sugar and lowering cardiovascular risk, it does nonetheless have coumarin, a compound that taken in excess amounts could lead to liver damage. For those that wish to continue to reap the benefits of cinnamon usage, without accruing the liver risks, it’s important to understand that there are two varieties of cinnamon.

Cassia cinnamon, which has a stronger taste, is the variant most usually found in supermarkets, as well as the variant with the highest amount of coumarin. Meanwhile, Ceylon cinnamon, a native of Sri Lanka, which is also more costly than the Cassia cinnamon, has thinner layers than its more universally used counterpart and also up to 18 times less of the liver-damaging compound. Therefore, despite the cost, Ceylon may be the cinnamon health-seekers should look for.

Key Takeaways:

  • Few people know that there are actually two different varieties of cinnamon available to for consumption by consumers.
  • The cinnamon may contain substances harmful to the human body, and the less-common variety of cinnamon, Ceylon cinnamon, has 18 times less of these harmful substances
  • The lesser-known and less popular Ceylon cinnamon variety may have health benefits to humans that are not existant in the more-popular cassia variety.

"Many studies have overlooked the bifurcated nature of the spice, investigating both Ceylon and cassia cinnamon as one mutual substance."

Subject: How safe are heartburn medications and who should use them?





Heartburn medications that are currently prescribed might not be the most effective in treating heartburn. Many people suffer from heartburn and many of those people are prescribed what is known as "protein pump inhibitors." These medications prevent stomach cells from producing stomach acid, which causes heartburn. However, these medications often need to be taken for long periods of time and may lead to early death. While studies show proton pump inhibitors are effective at reducing heartburn, one study found a small increased risk of early death for those taking these medications and other studies have linked negative side effects, like vitamin B12 deficiency, to proton pump inhibitors. Nevertheless, the benefits outweigh the risks. Yet, it seems as though too many proton pump inhibitors are being prescribed than are necessary. Therefore, only those suffering from extreme heartburn should be prescribed proton pump inhibitors, as they can be very beneficial to treating their condition.

Key Takeaways:

  • Acid reflux is classified in two types, one with clear erosions and non-erosive.
  • Protien pump inhibitor doses of 5 mg a day were effective in significantly improving symptons in non-erosive reflux.
  • Protein pump inhibitors should not be used for extended time periods and only when necessary, as many are over prescribed and used indefinitely.

"A study found these drugs were very effective for treating reflux disease, with eight weeks of therapy with standard (once daily) dosing healing acid damage in more than 80% of patients."

A new study has shown that broccoli may be able to slow and even reverse type-2 diabetes, which accounts for 90 to 95 percent of those diagnosed with diabetes. The pharmaceutical approach, a drug called metformin cannot be used on some people because of the risks of kidney damage. The side effects of this drug are not pleasant, and include abdominal discomfort, muscle pain, and cramping. Researchers have determined that sulforaphane, which occurs naturally in broccoli is able to lower over-expressed high glucose genes that cause diabetes. With this discovery, researchers are hoping to stop the problem early and treat prediabetic patients using broccoli, thus avoiding type-2 diabetes altogether.

Key Takeaways:

  • specific vegetables such as broccoli helps patients with type-2 diabetes control their levels of sugar
  • type-2 diabetes is the most common form that people have been diagnosed with it and 90 percent of the people are living with type-2 diabetes

Subject: What Is Taurine? Separating Myth from Reality





Taurine is is an amino acid naturally found in meats and dairy products. If a person consumes a normal balanced diet, they are probably meeting their daily taurine requirements. It is regarded as safe to consume, as long as it is used responsibly in moderation.

It does have numerous health benefits, including improved heart health, sedative effects for those afflicted with neurological disorders, lowering of cholesterol and blood pressure, combating gum disease, and improvement of athletic performance (although there seems to be some disagreement on this point).

A growing source of Taurine is in energy drinks. While usage of energy drinks has resulted in a rise in emergency room visits, the amount of taurine used within should pose no health risk and is not considered a contributing factor.

It should be noted that taurine is not completely understood at this time. Its effects on pregnant/breast-feeding women are unknown at this time, and the safe decision would be to avoid usage. It is also theorized that taurine may be detrimental to those battling bipolar disorders. Only further scientific studies will clarify the benefits/risks associated with taurine.

Key Takeaways:

  • There is confusion and fear surrounding the effects of taurine on the human body.
  • The author attempts to dispel myths regarding taurine and its perceived ill effects.
  • Taurine is an amino acid found in many common foods and is produced naturally by our bodies.

"The only amino acid with its own zodiac sign, it’s falsely been associated with the myth of coming from bull urine or bull semen, probably because its name stems from taurus, meaning bull."

Despite a high saturated fat levels, coconut oil is celebrated as having a variety of health benefits. But those benefits may not be supported by science.

Studies have shown that coconut oil does not lower the risk of heart disease relative to other oils. Populations that traditionally consume large amounts of coconut oil also have diets rich in fish and vegetables, so their diets cannot really be compared to standard American eating habits. Small quantities of antioxidants in some coconut oils may lessen inflammation related to heart disease, but this has not been demonstrated in humans.

While there is little evidence for coconut oil's health claims, there is plenty of science to show that diets rich in unsaturated fat, such is olive oil, do help prevent heart disease.

Key Takeaways:

  • With research on currently, there is still no evidence that states consuming coconut oil can lower any risks of heart disease.
  • Some people prefer virgin coconut oil, meaning that they extra the oil by putting pressure onto the meat then separating it.
  • Researchers did most of their research in indigenous populations in which they eat huge amounts of coconut on a daily basis.

"If you want to lower your risk of heart disease, coconut oil is not a good choice."

Consuming healthful levels of magnesium has been linked to disease prevention, reducing the risks of heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. While it is estimated that many Americans are magnesium deficient, supplementation with magnesium is discouraged without advice from a health care provider. Fortunately, a balanced diet is enough to meet the average healthy individual’s magnesium needs. Quinoa and pumpkin seeds are examples of food high in magnesium. For a more decadent dose, try a serving of a high percentage dark chocolate.

Key Takeaways:

  • Half of Americans are at nutritional risk from low Magnesium intake, a problem that is worse with older citizens, who have a less varied diet.
  • Nuts, grains and legumes are easy ways to get the essential nutrient from foods.
  • Food sources are best, because supplements can inhibit drugs and potentially have adverse reactions.

"However, digestive disorders such as Crohn’s disease or celiac disease can affect the ability to absorb magnesium, and people who have type 2 diabetes or take diuretics may lose more magnesium than normal through their urine."
