Importance of Carbohydrates in the Human Body

Carbohydrates are chemical compounds containing carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. These compounds have some similarities and some differences. Learn why carbohydrates are important in a diet and which foods are good sources of carbohydrates.

Nuts – Nutrition In A Nutshell

Nuts are one of the earliest staples of the human diet. It’s thought that people began cultivating nut trees around 10,000 B.C. Strictly speaking, nuts are tree seeds that are covered with a hard shell, but some other seeds are also considered nuts, as are peanuts, which are actually a type of legume. On their own or added to other dishes, nuts provide taste, texture, and concentrated doses of protein, vitamins, and minerals.

Evolved Dietary Changes Lead to Weight Gain and Chronic Disease

Our diet has changed radically over the past century and has become a significant cause of disease and illness as animal based foods account for a quarter of our calories. Processed foods which didn’t exist 100 years ago make up more than 60% of our present diet while naturally healthy vegetables and fruits provide less than 5% of our daily energy.

Misleading Theories Of Mainstream Medical And Nutritional Science

It is unfortunate that mainstream medical and nutritional science base their theories not so much on the basic processes that occurs in the body, but rather on the contents of food. This can be very misleading, to say the least. We are being told, for example, that when we lack calcium we should drink milk because it contains a lot of calcium. We are not being told, however, that in order to digest and metabolize milk calcium, we must first dispose of the phosphorus contained in milk. To process and remove the phosphorus, though, we require calcium. Since there is more phosphorus in milk than there is calcium, the bones, teeth and muscles have to supply the extra calcium. This fact alone makes milk a major calcium-depleting food. Loss of calcium can cause osteoporosis and such diseases as Crohn’s and Irritable Bowel Syndrome, diabetes, heart disease, respiratory ailments and cancer. The above principle can be applied to almost everything else we believe is so good for us.

Don’t Be Duped By A Mango

I live in the north, and it’s very clear to me that mangoes are not from around here. You can tell just by looking at them. The trees in these parts don’t produce things that large.
