What is the meaning of a healthy diet?

WHAT IS THE MEANING OF A HEALTHY DIET?

The key to a healthy or proper diet is balance. Balance means to have a variety of foods in the correct proportions and to consume adequate amounts of food and beverages in order to be healthy, to have reduced risk of chronic diseases and to achieve and maintain a healthy body weight.

Variety: No food by itself, with the exception of breast milk for about the first six months of life, can provide all the nutrients in the amounts needed for good health. It is important that our eating habits are characterized by a variety of foods. The existence of variety in the diet minimizes the possibility of a significant lack of a nutrient. Even foods that are not recommended to be consumed regularly should not be completely excluded from the diet, as they can provide one or more nutrients (eg meat as a source of vitamin B12). Avoiding certain foods is only recommended in cases of food allergy or intolerance (eg lactose) or genetic or other kind of sensitivity to certain foods (eg G6PD enzyme deficiency that causes susceptibility to the consumption of broad beans).

Moderation: The classification of foods as “good” and “bad” does not fit in the context of a balanced diet and can move many people away from improving their dietary habits. There are no “good” and “bad” foods, rather than foods that need to be consumed more or less often and some that exceed in providing nutrients. All foods have a place in our diet as long as they are eaten in moderation and in appropriate quantities per category. What matters is the overall dietary regimen followed and not individual foods or meals.

Where the classification of good or bad for food comes into play is if your food is pseudo chemical processed lab food that comes in a box or is picked up via a drive-thru window.  All real organic food should be included in the human diet.

Biological or organic foods:  What are they?

Biological or organic foods are products produced in accordance with the rules and principles of biological agriculture and cattle raising, which are based on:

Natural processes, without the use of synthetic chemical fertilizers, pesticides, antibiotics, hormones or enhancers. The use of appropriate production techniques that maintain the natural balance and soil fertility (eg recycling of plant and animal residues, crop rotation).

crop rotation: rotation of cultivation of different crops in the same field

The use of native plants and animal breeds which are adapted to local conditions and are more resistant to the development and transmission of diseases.
The good conditions of breeding and treatment of the animals.

The protection of the environment

Raw Honey

Honey, Spoon, Food

RAW HONEY

Honey contains about 200 substances, including amino acids, vitamins, minerals and enzymes, has bactericidal activity against many microorganisms, accelerates wound healing, has anti-inflammatory and protective effect on gastrointestinal infections caused by bacteria and rotavirus. Honey has been commonly used for treating wounds before the advent of antibiotics but even today, despite the variety of existing antibiotic creams, in some cases, honey may be more effective in treating poorly healing wounds that resist to conventional treatments. By removing moisture from the wound through its high sugar content, honey inhibits bacterial growth and proliferation and blocks the passage of harmful external contaminants. And, as is inexpensive, can be the ideal choice in countries without access to modern medicines for the treatment of wounds. Studies have shown that burns covered with honey heal faster and with less pain and scarring than the burns treated with conventional medicines. There are already on the market curative solutions honey-based for wound care.

OLIVE OIL

  1. Olive oil is a widely used product in the culinary of various countries, is extracted from the olives, grown mainly in the Mediterranean region. Since thousands of years ago that the oil is present in food and is also from antiquity that the medicinal properties of this miraculous oil are recognized. Egyptian women realized that olive oil was an excellent emollient for skin. In turn, the Greeks used the oil extracted from the olives to massage, believing that it had effects on the health of the body and the mind.Today we know that our ancestors were right. In addition to serving as a spice, leaving other foodstuffs tastier, olive oil has many medicinal properties derived from its composition because it has vitamins A, D, K and E, and antioxidants, which slow the aging of cells. The most striking is that even though is a food rich in fat and calories, the oil contributes to the reduction of blood cholesterol levels and also for the reduction of fat accumulation in the abdomen area.
    These benefits occur for its richness in monounsaturated fats, helping to reduce bad cholesterol. Studies published by the American Diabetes Association showed how the regular consumption of olive oil helps prevent fats that accumulate in the belly. It’s not just an aesthetic issue, but also a health issue because fat cells that stick to belly hinder the productio5n of insulin by the pancreas, causing diabetes. Other diseases are also related to the accumulation of fats, such as high blood pressure and cardiovascular problems. Therefore, olive oil intake is highly recommended by medical doctors and nutritionists.

To take advantage of these properties, experts recommend consuming 2 tablespoons of olive oil daily. It is important to remember that olive oil cannot be subjected to high temperatures, as with heating it loses its main properties unless turmeric is added to keep it stable.

Clinical evidence of the value of garlic, both on the prevention and the treatment of many diseases, is justified both by its content of minerals and vitamins and for its therapeutic effects as well as by the presence of some substances capable of reducing the levels of lipids and blood cholesterol. Garlic also functions as a hypotensive agent that helps control blood pressure without causing side effects. It has Selenium – a mineral that protects the heart, preventing the formation of atheroma, which leads to clots, and normalizing blood pressure.

The garlic also has allicin, alina, both with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects.

Report Finds We Are Eating ‘2,500 Tons of Fake Food

The reports are hitting the media from the UK to Thailand, which are two of the nations included in new operations through which government officials are cracking down on entire factories churning out phony food items. In the U.K., for example, there exists a major issue in which producers were selling fake ‘brand-name vodka’ in antifreeze containers that had been chemically treated to remove the repulsive smell. Unsurprisingly, alcohol was actually the most highly counterfeited substance of them all.

Liver Cancer Risk Factors

• Liver cancer has risk factors for certain people more than others and these are:

• The person with chronic infection with the hepatitis B virus, or hepatitis C virus.

• The person who has cirrhosis, this is a condition that has caused scarring to form on the tissue of the liver and thereby increases the chances of liver cancer.

• People with diabetes because it is a blood sugar disorder have a higher chance of liver cancer. This is twice as high if the person has diabetes and also has hepatitis C.

• People who have been exposed to contaminated foods that have aflatoxins have a higher risk. Aflatoxins can occur in corn, peanuts and soybeans.

• People who drink excessive amounts can cause irreversible liver damage and create a higher risk for liver cancer.

• This type of cancer can affect anyone of any age but men are at a higher risk than women.
