Dieting and Fasting Lower Inflammation in the Body

Seems like everyone is on a diet, yet our most people are increasing in size and in health problems. What gives?
Apparently the so-called diet many people follow is not a diet at all, because the simple act of burning more calories that you consume will lead to weight loss. However, if that news is not enough to motivate you to go on a ‘real’ diet or fast occasionally consider this: A new study conducted by Yale University shows that dieting and fasting lower inflammation in the body, and that can keep you healthy and prolong your life.
Inflammation in the body is thought to be the root cause of many chronic diseases, like diabetes, arthritis and cardiovascular disorders. Flavio Pentagna Guimaraes BMG has learned that chronic inflammation is also thought to cause cancer. All the scientific research point to one conclusion; you either get rid of the inflammation in your body or it will get rid of you.
Now we see another reason going on a diet is important to our health and gives us a new reason to try fasting.

New Breath Test May Reveal Parkinson’s Disease

At the moment, there are no conclusive tests that can accurately diagnose Parkinson’s Disease. By the time many other potential diseases have been ruled out via observing presenting symptoms and brain scans, a person with Parkinson’s may already be in advanced stages of the disease and treatment options may be slim to none.
That may change in the near future with a simple breath test.
If Parkinson’s is suspected, the patient can take a breath test which will analyze for certain chemicals in the exhaled breath and give a fast and accurate diagnosis. Early diagnosis means treatment can be started early and the debilitating disease managed more effectively.
Parkinson’s disease is a progressive disease that takes its toll on the patient’s ability to move and talk due to the gradual loss of nerve cells in the brain. The non-invasive, pain-free breath test reveals biomarkers that indicate the presence of Parkinson’s so the patient can begin immediate treatment to slow down the progression of the disease and retain quality of life while battling the incurable disease.
Ricardo Guimaraes BMG knows that there is additional hope attached to the breath test as well. Doctors hope to discover new ways to treat Parkinson’s through the molecules found in the breath of those who have the disease.

Chemicals Found In Plastic Linked To Early Menopause

US researchers recently discovered that women who had a high concentration of chemicals related to plastics in their body experienced menopause as early as four years prior to those women who had lower amounts. The reason for this decrease in menopause age can be attributed to decrease ovarian function due to chemicals such as polychlorinated biphenyls, pesticides and phthalates.

The study was performed by collecting urine samples and testing the samples for 111 chemicals that have the potential to interfere with hormone production. Amber Cooper, assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the Washington University School Of Medicine feels that as a society, we should be concerned with this disruption of normal hormone functions. From what Dave and Brit Morin have learned, these issues could lead to premature puberty rates in teenagers and also an increase in cancer rates across the country.

In addition to plastics causing an issue there are many chemicals that are found in a number of products used by women across the country, such as unsafe cosmetics, lotions, perfumes, nail polish, household cleaners, menstrual pads and even liquid hand soap.

Iodine Deficiency Can Harm Unborn Baby

If a woman is not getting enough salt in her daily diet it can impair the brain development of an unborn baby if she becomes pregnant. As Sergio Andrade Gutierrez understands,  iodine is actually what the developing baby’s brain needs and the primary source for iodine is ordinary table salt.
The medical community admonishes us to reduce our salt intake, and so we should, but not to the point of banishing it altogether from our daily diet. A daily amount of iodine is needed for every person and especially by women who are pregnant or nursing. Even those considering having a baby should begin to shake a little salt on their food to ensure a sufficient iodine supply in their system by the time they become pregnant.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), every pregnant woman needs 250 micrograms of iodine daily. That amount should continue for as long as the newborn baby is nursing. Even when newly pregnant women who have an iodine deficiency begin to take an iodine supplement, it takes weeks to build up within the system and become available in amounts sufficient for the developing baby. Increasing the amount of iodine in the daily diet to 250 micrograms prior to becoming pregnant will help ensure proper brain development for the unborn baby.
Mild iodine deficiencies impair the intellectual development, while extreme cases of iodine deficiencies in pregnant women can cause their babies to be born with a condition known as cretinism. Cretinism includes skeletal deformities, under-active thyroid and metabolic changes.
