Good Sex Requires Proper Nutrition!

 FOR MEN (And those who care about them)

Good Sex 1A satisfying sex life requires a healthy body, which depends on sound nutrition, exercise, and sufficient rest.  For the most part, sexual function is controlled by the endocrine glands, which secrete specific hormones.  In order to function properly and produce sufficient hormones, these glands have certain nutritional needs.

The pituitary gland has both direct and indirect effects on sexual and reproductive functions.  Its hormones need the B-complex vitamins, pantothenic acid, niacin, vitamin E and zinc.  Any deficiency of the pituitary causes underdeveloped sex organs, and impotence in men.

The adrenal glands, produce a small but significant amount of sex hormones.  These glands need vitamin A, the B vitamins, pantothenic acid, vitamin B-1, niacin, vitamin C and E, and the unsaturated fatty acids.  Adrenal exhaustion can result in little strength or desire for sex.  An inadequately supplied thyroid can also cause a lack of desire or strength for sex.  Iodine, the V vitamins, vitamin B-1, and vitamin E are essential for the production of its hormone, thyroxine.

Good sex 2The male sex gland, the testes, are composed of 2 glands; one secretes testosterone and the other produces sperm.  (Testosterone increased sexual desire in both sexes.)  Vitamins A, C, E, and folic acid work with testosterone to produce sperm and other male characteristics such as a deep voice and facial hair.  The nutrient content of sperm includes calcium, magnesium, zinc, sulfur, and vitamin B-12, C, and inositol.  A deficiency of vitamin E causes a degeneration of the testicles; too-low levels of zinc result in immovable, useless and infertile sperm.  In male laboratory animals, a manganese deficiency causes loss of sex drive, lack of semen, and degeneration of the seminal tubules.  Testosterone levels proportionately decrease with the amount of marijuana smoked.

The sex hormones are made from cholesterol.  Cholesterol-containing foods need not be limited as long as the body has sufficient amounts of the other nutrients needed to properly metabolize the cholesterol.  These include wthe vitamins B-complex, C, and E, magnesium, manganese, zinc, and lecithin.  Refined and processed foods are greatly lacking in these nutrients; in their absence cholesterol is unable to enter wthe cells and remains in the blood, eventually helping to form plaques.

Good sex 3

Impotence, the male’s inability to achieve erection of the penis has been related to a magnesium or a combined zinc and vitamin B-6 deficiency.  Other factors associated with impotence are emotional problems, physical illness such as diabetes, and the intake of drugs and alcohol.  Although levels of testosterone decrease with age, this doesn’t cause erectile impotence because the penis requires only minimal amounts of the hormone for successful operation.

Sterility can occur in the male and is often the result of a zinc deficiency.  Studies have shown that the higher the blood histamine level is in men, the quicker the ejaculation.  Men too low in histamine can’t achieve ejaculate prematurely.

Good sex 5

Sexual desire and performance can be adversely affected by numerous things including drugs, alcohol, cigarette smoking, caffeine, some common medicines such as certain tranquilizers, anti-hypertensives, and anticholinergics.

Perhaps you can see more clearly now that no general diet. can ever hope to give you what you need and no expert can generalize about nutrition and give you the specifics you must have to effect a major change in health, and I’ve only discussed one issue today.  It’s important to understand that your individual differences required the correct and specific nutritional program that will take into consideration:

            *   your age

            *   genetic individuality

            *   any existing health problems,   and

*   the nutritional needs unique to YOU, as a man

 

Sex 6To Conclude:

Nutrient deficiencies are an epidemic in our society and it’s vital to find out where you stand so that you can become nutrient sufficient.  To this end, in a few weeks you will have the opportunity of checking out my “heart project” it’s called; Dr. Henry’s HealthTest© .  It’s helped thousands of people over the years, recently, completely updated, including its copywrite and for the first time I’m offering it to the general public so that we can all –

STOP, The Food & Vitamin Guessing Game!(TM)  Each test is individually designed based on the answers you give. Not only that, but if you’re low or very-low in any nutrient you will receive a complete explanation and a list of foods in that particular category.  If that’s not enough – I will design the right food program for you, again, based on your answers and you won’t have to count calories, carbohydrates, fats, fiber, etc.  I’ve done all the work for you .and so much more.Good sex4

10 Steps to Loving Your Size & Heart

In the United States, heart disease affects about 9 million adults, killing 1 every 37 seconds. 

Heart attackBut the good news – which; Dr. Philip Ades, author of the new book Eating for a Healthy Heart has made it his mission to spread the news that heart-disease is mostly preventable.  Research shows that up ti 90 percent of heart disease can be prevented by changing one’s diet, exercising more, maintaining a healthy weight and not smoking.  I’ve been preaching this for 30 years and I applaud Dr. Ades.

To reduce your risk why not make a decision to follow these 10 simple steps:

Step #1: Know your numbers:

Note: I do not read the laboratory ranges as these are for the most part not well people.  We are a pretty sick society and in functional/integrated healthcare we look for the optimal ranges so that the patient is really getting well.  I will note my acceptable range beside the clinical ranges.

High blood cholesterol is linked with about 0ne-third of heart disease cases worldwide, according to data from the United Nations.  Your blood cholesterol (lipid profile) is made up of several readings: high density cholesterol (HDL), low-density cholesterol (LDL) and triglycerides (TG).  LDL cholesterol and triglycerides are often referred to as “bad” cholesterol; high levels (greater than 160 mg/dL(120) and 200 mg/dL (180),  respectively) are considered  risk factors for developing heart disease.

On the other hand, “good” HDL protects against cardiovascular disease.  (A healthy HDL target is 60 mg/dL(40) or higher.)  But an undesirable  lipid profile doesn’t mean that developing heart disease is inevitable.  Research shows that changing your diet for the better (HealthTest©) can help lower “bad” LDL and TG levels, as well as increase “good” HDL cholesterol, if they’re out of healthy ranges.  Ask your doctor about running a VAP or comprehensive Lipid Profile.

Step #2: Calculate your risk:

Having multiple factors for heart disease increases your risk exponentially.  For example, if you
smoke, have high blood pressure or high cholesterol, any one of these factors doubles your likelihood of developing heart disease in the next 6-years.  But having all 3 increases your chance eightfold.  The good news – just treating any one of these risk factors effectively – you quit smoking or bring your cholesterol into a healthy range, halves your likelihood of developing heart disease (i.e., you’ll have 4 times, rather than 8 tines, the risk of someone who doesn’t have any of these risk factors).

Step #3: Lose weight if you need to:Fitness Time

Losing as little as 5 to 10 percent of your body weight – about 8 to 15 pounds if you start at 150, will result in better blood pressure, lower risk for diabetes and improved cholesterol levels, research suggests.  Are you toting around too many pounds? There are 2 ways to find out.  First, calculate your body mass index (BMI).  If you don’t know how to do this, let me know and I’ll send you the information free of course: inquiries@drhenry.com.
A normal BMI is 18.5 to 24.9.  A BMI of 25 to 29.9 is overweight, and 30 and above is considered obese.  Some complain that if you’re muscular or “large-boned,” you may get a BMI that suggests you’re overweight when you’re really not.  I this is you, strip down to your underwear and stand sideways in front of a full-length mirror.  If your abdomen droops or sticks out, the high BMI is correct.  If it’s flat and firm, your BMI may, indeed, be incorrect.

Step #4: Slash your intake of saturated fat:

Butter, sour cream, Mayo.  These foods, as well as fatty cuts of meats, are high in the saturated fats that elevate “bad” LDL cholesterol, leading to plaque build-up in arteries.  Limit saturated fats to 5 percent or less of your total calories (divide your weight by 12 to get the daily total limit in grams).  For example, try replacing butter with vegetable-based oils, particularly olive and canola oil, both of which contain good amounts of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, and by swapping in lean poultry, fish and beans for higher-fat m eats.   Don’t get discouraged, at the end of this article I will make your life much easier – my customized HealthTest©) will STOP, The Food & Vitamin Guessing Game!

Step #5: Get rid of the junk food: 

food addictMany packaged snacks, crackers, bakery goods and some margarines contain artificial trans fats (a.k.a. hydrogenated oils), which increase “bad” LDL even more than saturated fats, according to recent research by Walter Willett, M.D., at the Harvard School of Public Health.

In a 2003 interview with Eating Well, Willett blamed trans fats for millions of unnecessary premature deaths from heart disease.  Please, read labels carefully: if a package claims “zero trans fats,” the amount per serving may be less than 0.5 g and could have been rounded down to zero.  The only way to be sure you’re getting a product without trans fats is to avoid products that include “hydrogenated oils” Better yet, stock up on nutrient-rich vegetables, fruits and nuts.

Step #6: Fill up on fiber:

Various studies link a high-fiber diet with a lower risk of heart disease.  In a Harvard study of female health professionals, people who ate a high-fiber diet had a 40 percent lower risk of heart disease than those who ate a low-fiber diet.WholeGrains_sprouted

Aim to include plenty of foods that are rich in soluble fiber, which, studies show, can help lower “bad” LDL.  Soluble fiber binds bile acid, a key component in fat digestion that our bodies make from cholesterol.  We can’t digest fiber, so when bile acids are bound to it, they get ushered out of the body as waste.  This causes the body to convert more cholesterol into bile acids, which ultimately has the effect of lowering circulating cholesterol levels.  Foods high in soluble fiber include oatmeal, barley, beans, okra and eggplant, and citrus fruit, such as oranges.

Step #7:   Replace refined grains with whole grains:

Eating too many refined carbohydrates (e.g., white bread, pastries, white pasta) fuels the body’s ability to make triglycerides.  What’s more, processed grains are quickly converted to glucose, which raises blood glucose levels and may predispose one to developing type 2 diabetes, and a  risk factor for developing heart disease.  Choose whole grains, such as brown rice, wheat berries, and quinoa and whole-wheat pasta, which contains more fiber (which slows down the conversion of starches to glucose) and healthful fats than processed grains.

Baked SalmonStep #8:   Go fish:

Consuming two or more servings of fish per week is associated with a 30 percent lower risk of developing coronary heart disease over the long term, studies show.  Fish contains omega-3 fats, which lower levels of triglycerides in the blood that may contribute to blood clotting.  Omega-3s also lower blood pressure slightly and can help prevent irregular heart rhythms.  (Flaxseed oil, canola oil and walnuts also contain omega-3 fats.)


Step #9:   Get nuts:

Research suggests that people who eat nuts – walnuts, pecans, almonds, hazelnuts, pistachios, pine nuts and peanuts (which actually are legumes) – 2 to 4 days or more per week have a lower incidence of heart disease than people who eat them less.  All nuts contain good amounts of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats and low levels of saturated fats.

Step #10:   Enjoy alcohol in moderation:

RESVERATROLScientific literature indicates that people who drink moderately are less likely to have heart disease than those who abstain.  Alcohol appears to raise “good” HDL cholesterol.  Wine, in particular, “thins” the blood (making it less prone to clotting) and also contains antioxidants that prevent your arteries from taking up LDL cholesterol, a process that can lead to plaque build-up.  Remember, 1 drink equals 12 ounces of beer, 5 ounces of wine or 1.5 ounces of liquor.

Bottom Line:

After reading all this, you’re probably saying – this is too confusing, how to I do this or that.  How do I figure out and understand these numbers.  Ok, as an ex-311 pounder, believe me when I say, I understand – been there, done that and you can’t do this successfully on your own, unfortunately.  But, I have good news for you, wherever you live, it’s called Dr. Henry’s HealthTest©) which will using my personalized extensive questionnaire, allow me to find out, using body-language (how are you now feeling), to determine your nutrient deficiencies.  Are you normal, low or very-low.  Any that are low or very-low I will give you detailed information on what that means, and what foods you may want to incorporate into your new food program.  I will also, determined by your answers design 2 food programs just for you. No counting calories, carbohydrates, fats, fiber, etc., I’ve done all the hard work for you, all you have to do is EAT!  I sure wish there was someone to do this for me in my suffering days.

Unfortunately, it’s not interactive, as yet, but if you email me your desire to order the HealthTest,  I will send it via pdf and you can either scan it or fax back to me and I’ll get you up and running.  I will also give you supplement information to help you get balanced nutritionally with pharmaceutical grade nutrients that you need, no more guessing.

30 Ways to Lower Your Blood Pressure


“People with diabetes are 3 times more likely to have high blood pressure than people without diabetes.  A recent study found that about 71% of people with diabetes have high blood pressure.  Hypertension often goes unnoticed and leads to an increased risk of heart attack and stroke.”
   
American Diabetes Association

Why wouldn’t your allopathic doctor know this and check patient’s appropriately?

obesity1.     Watch Your Weight:

In overweight people, a 10% reduction in total body weight will sometimes normalize blood pressure.

2.      Get Physical:

Go for a brisk 30 minute walk 6 days a week.

3.      Blood Sugar:

Diabetics who control their blood sugar reduce hypertension risk.

4.      Reduce Stress:

Try yoga, meditation, massage or talking to a supportive positive friend.

cancersmoke5.      Butt Out:

All forms of tobacco dramatically raise blood pressure.

6.      Shake Off Salt:Salt 2

And sodium rich foods such as soy sauce and canned soups.  With the exception of salt substitutes or an easily found product in your grocery store with a balance of sodium/potassium chloride.

7.      Remember B-Vitamins:

After angioplasty surgery, 3 different B vitamins – folate, B6 and B12-cut in half the risk that arteries will re-close.

8.      Check Your Blood:

Have your cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood sugar checked regularly.  A comprehensive laboratory work-up is your best health insurance to maintain optimal good health.

9.      Fish for Omega 3-s:

Stress essential fatty-acid-containing foods or supplements of fish oil, flaxseed oil and borage oil.

10.    Mull Over A Multi:Vitamin-B6

A daily multi-vitamin ensures that you’re getting the basics.  Find out where you are nutrient deficient and concentrate on increasing the nutrients in your food and supplement program.

11.     Value Vitamin C:

The less vitamin C in the blood, the higher the blood pressure in hypertensive patients.  Take 2-3 times daily to your tolerance level.

12.     Fat Doesn’t Make You Fat – However:

Choose white fish and skinless chicken and turkey or remove before eating.  Alternate to cheese products that are not from dairy such as:  goat, oat, almond, veggie, soy or rice.   Forget the processed foods, if possible.

13.     Toss the Trans Fats:

These are a greater risk than even saturated fats.  (Margarine, baked goods, etc) Read the labels.food addict

14.     Embrace Vitamin E: Evidence suggests that vitamin E also magnifies vitamin C’s blood pressure-lowering effect.

15.     Reject Refined Foods:

Shun the salty, sugary, pre-made, preserved, fried and fatty

16.     Get Calcium:

Hypertensive patients seldom drink enough milk-and they are usually low on calcium.  Broccoli, spinach, tofu, goat milk and calcium supplements are alternatives.  Don’t take calcium alone.

17.     Compute Your Body Mass Index:

Multiply your weight in pounds by 703, then divide by your height in inches, then again divide by your height in inches.  Try to stay between 18.5 and 24.9.

demon drink18.     Swear Off Sodas:

Soft drinks can deplete potassium.

19.     Prefer Potassium:This crucial mineral is found in many fruits, vegetables, dairy foods, fish and supplements.

20.     Make It Magnesium:

It’s in leafy greens, legumes, whole grains and supplements.

21.     Air Out Antioxidants:

Beta-Carotene, Co-Enzyme Q10, and Selenium may help.

22.     Boost Bioflavonoids:

Available in fruits, vegetables, and supplements, bioflavonoids enhance vitamin C’s effects.

23.     Leave The Bar:Superdrink

1-2 drinks a day is OK-even stress-relieving-but more can cause health problems.

24.     Dash Your Diet:

DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) according to some experts is high in fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy, and it’s low in fat.

25.     Think Zinc:

Zinc may reverse hypertension that has been caused by too much cadmium.

26.     Buy Into Bilberry:

This European blueberry contains anthocyanosides, which are powerful flavonoids.

27.     Grasp Grape Seed Extracts:

Research at the University of Alabama suggests grape seed extract can lower blood pressure significantly.

28.     Find Fiber:

Think veggies and whole grains.

29.     Jilt the Java:

Too much daily coffee-and even tea-can raise blood pressure.

30.     Now, Go To Bed:artworks-000042312635-3k7r7p-crop

High blood pressure patients deprived of sleep experience significant increases in blood pressure, especially during the evening.    

Nobody in their right mind will be able to read this and do it all, what I may suggest at once a week or perhaps once a month you bring one new health awareness issue into your mind and all those changes will certainly make your body (who relies on you) to make it happy.

I would suggest if you’re not working with a natural healthcare doctor that perhaps you ought to start by using my individualized HealthTest© medical (allopathic) doctors have no credentials in clinical nutrition – so perhaps this may be a first step for you or someone you love.  If you have questions do feel free to call me, and let’s talk about you!

MENTAL ILLNESS AND KIDS:

mental-illnessThe first comprehensive examination of childhood mental health by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows that mental illness is increasing in children younger than 18 years.

“A total of 13% to 20% of children living in the United States experience a mental disorder in a given year,” according to CDC investigators, who published the findings May 16 in a supplement of the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.

The most prevalent of parent-reported current diagnoses among children aged 3 to 17 years was attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD at 6.8%.  Depending on the surveillance system used, ADHD prevalence ranged from 7.6% to 8.9% in 2007 to approximately 8.5% in 2010 and 2011.

 ADHD prevalence was highest among white and black non-Hispanic children.

 Behavioral or conduct disorders, at 3.5%, were the next most common parent-reported current diagnosis in children in the same age group, followed by anxiety, at 3%; depression, at 2.1% and autism spectrum disorder (ASD)  at 1.1%.

 The prevalence of behavioral and conduct disorders was twice as high among boys as among girls.physical-or-mental-illness

 Some 0.2% of children between 6 and 17 years of age had a parent-reported current diagnosis of Tourette syndrome.

In contrast to other childhood mental disorders, recent survey findings indicate that the prevalence of substance use disorders among adolescents between 17 and 17 years of age has decreased over time, to 6.9% in 2011, down from 5.9% in 2002.  Illicit drug use was also higher in 2002 than in 2011.

On the basis of self-reported data, 8.3% of adolescents between 12 and 17 years of age reported 14 or more unhealthy days in the past month.  This affected nearly 2 million US adolescents.

Mental boy Finally, suicide was the second leading cause of death among children between 12 and 17 years of age in 2010.

 Estimates also indicate that the prevalence of having seriously considered attempting suicide among students was 15.8% nationwide.  Some 12.8% of students had made a plan about how they would attempt suicide, and 7.8% of students had attempted suicide 1 or more times during the year prior to a 2011 national survey.

“Surveillance is a critical first step in the public health approach to mental health among children,” MMWR authors write.  “As intervention and prevention strategies are implemented, surveillance is needed to continually monitor progress in reducing the impact of mental disorders and improving mental health.”

My personal comments:

It’s amazing when we increase the strength of the immune system by eating whole foods rather than junk – that means feeding our children properly – you will see miraculous changes, that is if you’re really serious.  This ought to be a family affair.

Never eat the following, if you intend to exhibit optimal good health:

1.      Processed foods – such as bacon, sausage, packaged meats, etc.  They contain sodium nitrate and rodents hair – really!  And yes, the USDA is well aware of this situation.

2.      Artificial sweeteners – affect your brain, cancer, diabetes, etc.  This means staying away from all the so-called diet foods and drinks.  Stevia is what I use and there are coconut sugar.  Fructose – affects your liver, diabetes, cancer and others.

3.      Margarine – affects heart, diabetes, cancer and others.  Use only real (organic) butter, and/or what I use is 100% Spanish Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil on anything uncooked. Many are still cooking with olive oil and when it gets too hot, the molecules break down and that’s not good.  I use Organic Coconut Oil.Child-Mental

4.      Statin drugs – which cause cancer.  Know that when cholesterol goes below 200 – it’s inviting cancer and really lowers testosterone levels.

5.      Shell fish – like lobster, shrimp, crab, etc., it’s like you are eating cockroaches.  I guess that’s why if you read your bible you know that in Leviticus, we’re told not to eat these foods and others, and today we know that they have many parasites. Japan has put so much radioactivity into the ocean that everything that comes out of it has health issues. Canned tuna – full of mercury.  The only fish you ought to consume is wild.  Wild organic tuna and other wild fish are fine and important to your overall health needs.

6.      GMO foods – they are poison, without doubt.  The sprays that Monsanto now controls and every farmer (other than organic) have changed the DNA in crops.  These poisons are fed to the animals, the water is poisoned, and it’s a big mess.

If you’re interested in learning more about GMO – take the time to check out my online radio show entitled: “The GMO Disaster Warning” you will learn more than you probably want to know which is the case with all of my shows which are educational, often controversial, but always the truth, as I see it daily.

And let me not warn all parents – ADD and ADHD has become a national epidemic because we’re feeding and allowing our kids to eat poison daily.  So – don’t say you didn’t know this or that.  If you want to know what’s what – keep reading and listening to my shows – they are FREE – and the best gift I share with the world because of my difficult journey.

punished-child7.      Aluminum salts – this and fluoride is found in our all of our crops which affects the brain, lowers IQ in kids and let’s not forget the newest epidemic – Alzheimers’s Disease.

8.      High Fat dairy products – animals are fed corn based products containing genetically modified (GMO), give antibiotics, hormones, etc.  Use only organic dairy products.

9.      Coffee products – a moderate amount is fine, but several each day will have deleterious affects to your system.  Instead use cereal coffee, green tea extract tea (organic).

10.     Alcohol – increased risks of pancreatic cancer, liver, kidney and osteoporosis, etc.  However, in small amounts you should have no issues, unless you’re susceptible (allergies) to the ingredients.

I know I’ve ruined some of your day with this important information, but if you don’t change you’re ways you can’t expect to stay well and when something hits you, don’t think running to the doctor for a drug is the answer.  Did you know that 100,000 people die each year from taking prescription drugs?Mother-Child

So, get smart and start implementing healthy lifestyle living in your homes as soon as today.  Your children are our future and due to the fact that they probably didn’t have a start in life with parents who were no doubt nutrient deficient, then given processed, junk food and water, how would you expect them to have developed a strong immune system?  Not possible – it’s only time when you will become aware of the fact that our children will be dying earlier then their parents and that, to me, is a very sobering thought and reality!

So, as I like to leave you each day we meet – isn’t it time for your to start –

Trans Fats:

Going, going, but not gone!

 fat-pan

It has been 6 years since the FDA began requiring packaged foods to list trans fats on the label.  Though animal foods like butter contain tiny amounts of natural trans fats, most trans fats in our food supply are synthetic, created when unsaturated vegetable oils are partially hydrogenated.

This gives the oils a semi-solid consistency that’s more suitable for many processed foods.  Synthetic trans fats raise LDL (“bad”) cholesterol and have other adverse effects that increase the risk of heart attack and stroke.

In response to the labeling law, many manufacturers voluntarily reduced or eliminated partially hydrogenated oils – and thus trans fats – from their margarines, baked goods, snacks, and other foods.  Sone fast-food restaurants got rid of trans fats in French fries, while California and New York city banned artificial trans fats in restaurants altogether. cigs

Reassuringly, a 2010 study in the New England Journal of Medicine found that most reformulated foods do not contain higher levels of saturated fats, as feared.  Instead, food makers and restaurants have largely replaced partially hydrogenated oils with healthy unsaturated oils.

transfat

These government and industry steps seem to be paying off now.  According to a large study from the CDC in the Journal of the American Medical Association in February, blood levels of trans fats decreased nearly 60% between 2000 and 2009, thanks to the removal of trans fats from processed foods.  Such a dramatic drop in blood trans fats “should help lower the risk of cardiovascular disease,” says Dr. Hubert Vesper, the study’s lead author.

That’s good news, but don’t let down your guard.  Some supermarkets and restaurant foods still contain trans fats, sometimes at very high levels.  Here are some examples, cited by the Center for Science in the Public Interest:

*       Jolly Time Microwave Popcorn (some flavors) has 4 grams of trans fat per serving.

*       Marie Callender’s Lattice Apple Pie, 5 grams

*       Long John Silver’s Clam Strips, 7 grams

*       White Castle donuts, as much as 9 grams

Other companies cites include:

Celeste Pizza – Jimmy Dean – Pepperidge Farm – Giant – DiGiorno, and Betty Crocker.trans fat pie_chart

The American Heart Association advises that trans fats provide no more than 1% of your total daily calories (that’s less than 2 grams a day for someone eating 2,000 calories a day.)

Bottom Line:

 

Check nutrition labels for trans fats, but you have to read between the lines.  Because of a labeling loophole, manufacturers can say their products have 0 grams of trans fat if they contain less than 0.5 grams per serving.  That may not sound like a lot, but the numbers add up if you eat several servings.

trans fat labelTo avoid synthetic trans fats in packaged foods, make sure that partially hydrogenated oil is not in the ingredients list.  If you use margarine, soft (tub) margarines are much less likely to contain trans fats, or at least much less of then, than hard margarines.  Keep in mind that products that contain trans fats tend to be junk foods anyway, often high in calories, fat, and sodium.  Life becomes much easier when you eat organic.

i-really-love-to-eat-porkCook pork cuts to 145  degree F  (they can still be pink inside) and ground pork to 160 degrees F.  To avoid skin infections, take care not to handle raw pork with bare hands if you have any cuts or sores, and always be sure to wash your hands and all equipment that has come in contact with it.

PORK – REALLY?

no_pork_no_lard__reallyTo keep pork safe, handle and cook it properly.  In a recent study from the University of Iowa, 65% of raw pork products were found to harbor Staphylococcus aureus bacteria, a leading cause of food poisoning.  More, 7% had MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphyloccus aureus).  MRSA, which can additionally cause serious skin, blood and organ infections, is particularly dangerous because many antibiotics aren’t effective against it.

Pork labeled “raised without antibiotics” was just as likely to be contaminated as conventionally produced pork.  As with all raw meat, keep pork separate from other foods to prevent cross-contamination.bad meat
