    Eating too many cakes, biscuits and crisps won't just make you fat. Brazilian researchers claim a diet heavy in ultra-processed foods may also lead to dementia. Their study of more than 10,000 people looked at how eating too many unhealthy snacks affected their brain power. Middle-aged adults who ate the most ultra-processed foods, with them making up up to three quarters of their diet, saw their brains decline 28 per cent quicker than those eating the least.

    A single mother who found her passion in hunting only eats meat - because she claims to be allergic to fruits and vegetables. Colette Crick, 43, from Bedfordview in South Africa, says she was ill for much of her childhood while eating a typical diet. However, she says most of this faded away when she started to follow a high-protein diet at 18.  Her issues reemerged years later when Colette decided to have a baby, and started to eat a more balanced diet - it was then that she sent her hair for DNA testing. This revealed she had a sensitivity to salicylate, a natural chemical made by plants to protect against pests and disease. She returned to her high-protein diet, and later decided to hunt for the meat herself. Colette, who is mother to Colt, nine, and Cody, 11, has said her youngest son has the same sensitivity, and she will one day teach him to follow the same lifestyle.

    Five things to do in the garden this week. 1. Can you still plant tomatoes? I remember seeing some tomato plants in the garden department of a home improvement center at this time last year. They were leftover, popular cherry tomato varieties, which should be planted by mid-July to get the maximum harvest out of them. I planted them in October and they just sat in the ground until spring when they began to flower and fruit and did so wonderfully throughout the summer and now into the fall. Upon calling a local Armstrong Garden Center, I learned that they are currently carrying three tomato varieties – Stupice, Siletz, and Oregon Spring – which, planted now, should flower and fruit through the winter months. They are all heirloom, open-pollinated varieties, meaning that the fruit of each has its own unique quality (or qualities) that might include color, size, shape, juiciness, or taste. 2. Now is the time to plant Iceland poppies, also known as champagne poppies due to the way their chalice-shaped blooms, when held erect on their peduncles (flower...

    A recent study suggests that while increased salt intake lowers life expectancy, eating fresh fruits and vegetables may reduce the chance of premature death. People who always add salt to their meals face a 28% increased risk of dying prematurely compared with those who never or rarely add salt, according to a study published earlier this month in the European Heart Journal. More Health & Fitness News More Local News The study found that compared to never or rarely adding salt to foods, always adding salt was associated with lowering life expectancy at the age of 50 by a year and a half in women and just over two years in men. The study followed 501,379 participants for an average of nine years, and findings accounted for factors that could affect outcomes, such as age, race, sex, body mass index, smoking status, physical activity, alcohol intake, and medical conditions including diabetes, cancer and heart disease.

    Obese children that live within a half mile of a grocery store selling fresh fruit, vegetables and meat are more likely to lose weight, a study finds. Researchers at New York University (NYU) investigated the results of a city-wide program that handed tax cuts to supermarkets selling more fresh products in 'food deserts', where little is available. The city's Food Retail Expansion Program to Support Health (FRESH) was slammed by retailers after only backing at least eight supermarkets in 12 years, with previous research suggesting it was largely ineffective. But today's study — the first to look at more than one supermarket — shows the opposite, with obesity rates dropping significantly near stores. Researchers are calling for more subsidized supermarkets to open, saying the shops 'might play an effective role in addressing... childhood obesity'.  The above map shows the eight supermarkets included in the study. It also reveals the zones eligible for subsidized supermarkets (bright blue) that would sell more fresh fruit, vegetables and meat in return for tax breaks RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next ...
    TRYING to make your kids' school packed lunches creative, varied AND healthy can be a hard slog.

    Eating an 'anti-inflammatory' diet of fruit, vegetables, tea and coffee could cut the chances of getting dementia by a third. A cup of tea, a morning coffee and fruit, vegetables and legumes such as lentils and chickpeas, all contain healthy plant compounds. These help combat age-related inflammation in the body which can increase the risk of dementia. A study rated the diet of more than 1,000 older people for anti-inflammatory foods and tracked them over an average of three years. Those with the most anti-inflammatory diet consumed around 20 pieces of fruit, 19 servings of vegetables, four servings of legumes and 11 cups of coffee or tea in the average week. Compared to this group, those with the least anti-inflammatory diet were three times more likely to get dementia. Dr Nikolaos Scarmeas, senior author of the study from Kapodistrian University of Athens in Greece, said: ‘These findings suggest that people could protect their brains by eating more healthily.  A study rated the diet of more than 1,000 older people for anti-inflammatory foods and tracked them over an average of three...
    STROKE is one of the world’s biggest killers. But it is also largely preventable, and it could be as easy as “an apple a day”. 1Apples are one of the fruits linked to lower risk of strokeCredit: Alamy White fruits and vegetables are, according to research, most beneficial for staving off a killer stroke. One study found that these foods could halve your risk of the sometimes fatal event. Researchers at Wageningen University, Netherlands, examined 20,000 adults, with an average age of 41, and how much of 178 food items they typically consumed.  The participants were free of cardiovascular diseases at the start of the study, but over 10 years, 233 strokes occurred. Green, orange, yellow, red and purple fruits showed no relationship to whether participants suffered a potentially deadly stroke. However, each 25 gram per day increase in white fruits and vegetables was linked with a nine per cent lower risk of stroke.  An average apple is 120 grams. Those who ate the most white fruit and veg of all the group were 52 per cent less likely to...
    Switching from 'Western' foods to a non-organically-cultivated Mediterranean diet may triple your pesticide intake and weaken the immune system. This is the conclusion of a study led by researchers from the University of Oslo, who compared the effects of different diets on a group of 27 British students. The team found that produce farmed in the traditional manner passed on more environmental contaminants, which may affect fertility and juvenile development.  Rich in fruit, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and fish but low in red meat and dairy, the Mediterranean diet has long been hailed as a healthy alternative to British fare. While the fish part of the diet is low in environmental contaminants, non-organic farming of fruit, veg and whole grains passes on more pesticides. However, the team noted, when the ingredients of the Mediterranean diet are farmed organically, such can slash pesticide intake by around 90 per cent.

    Children who eat a nutritious breakfast and more fruit and vegetables have better mental health, a study suggests. A poor diet is potentially as detrimental to pupils' wellbeing as being exposed to violence and rows at home, researchers warn. They described the quality of some children's meals and snacks as 'concerning' and called for urgent action to improve them. A failure to act is also likely to impact on children's growth, development and education, by hampering their ability to concentrate in class, they add. A poor diet is potentially as detrimental to pupils' wellbeing as being exposed to violence and rows at home, researchers warn The nutritionists, from the University of East Anglia, quizzed 10,853 pupils at 50 Norfolk schools on their diet and mental health.

    Laying out supermarkets so that fruit and vegetables are found at the entrance and removing confectionery items from near checkouts can prompt healthier purchases. This is the conclusion of a study undertaken by researchers led from the University of Southampton in tandem with the supermarket chain Iceland Foods Ltd.  Based on their findings, the team said that the UK Government's plan to ban the prominent placement of junk food in stores could improve the nation's diets. Laying out supermarkets so that fruit and vegetables are found at the entrance (as pictured) and removing confectionery items from near checkouts can prompt healthier purchases In trials, researchers found that fruit and vegetable sales increased by an average of 6,170 portions per week after three months under the new layout and 9,820 after six months — while weekly confectionery sales fell by 1,575 items after six monthsHOW MUCH SUGAR IS TOO MUCH?

    (CNN)Whether you're a home gardener, a CSA-er or a farmers' market regular, it's easy to wind up with more irresistibly pristine, fresh-picked produce than your household can possibly consume in its peak state of ripeness.Avid home canners and fermenting enthusiasts are well equipped to handle this seasonal abundance. But for the rest of us, we can take comfort knowing there's a much faster and easier way. All we need is freezer space, sturdy containers, and basic know-how for maximizing our bounty to the fullest.It's true that some fruits and vegetables freeze better than others. Water particles expand as they turn to ice, breaking down the cell walls that give fruits and vegetables their structure and crunch. But that's not necessarily an issue, depending on how you plan to use them. Even that extra half of a watermelon you couldn't finish eating can be cut up, frozen, and later pureed in gazpacho or a smoothie.

    Eating at least six portions of fruit and vegetables every day can reduce your stress levels and makes you less tense than those who avoid their greens, study shows. Researchers from Australia's Edith Cowan University examined the link between fruit and vegetable intake and stress levels of more than 8,600 people aged 25 to 91.  They found that those who consume at least 470g (16.5oz) of fruit and vegetables every day had 10 per cent lower stress levels than those who consumed under 230g (8oz). According to the NHS an average adult portion of fruit or vegetables is 80g (2.8oz), so the study found you'd need about six daily portions to reduce stress.  The team say the mechanism that links fruit and veg to stress is unclear, but could be due to those consuming more getting higher doses of key nutrients in their diet.   Eating at least six portions of fruit and vegetables every day can reduce your stress levels and makes you less tense than those who avoid their greens, study shows.

    I snack on nuts and the occasional apple or pear, and thanks to the delicious meals my wife, Dr Clare Bailey, a GP, dreams up, I am pretty sure we eat our five a day, writes Dr Michael Mosley (pictured) Like most people, I had assumed, broadly speaking, that the more vegetables you eat each day, the better.  I snack on nuts and the occasional apple or pear, and thanks to the delicious meals my wife, Dr Clare Bailey, a GP, dreams up, I am pretty sure we eat our five a day.

    How many servings of fruits and veggies should you be getting each day to live a longer life? A new study published in Circulation, the journal of the American Heart Association, aims to provide an answer.  In an analysis of data representing some 2 million people around the world, researchers identified five daily servings of fruits and veggies — two servings of fruit and three of vegetables, to be exact — as the ideal ratio to live a longer life. Diets that are rich in fruits and vegetables “help reduce [the] risk for numerous chronic health conditions that are leading causes of death, including cardiovascular disease and cancer,” per a news release on the findings. For the study, researchers analyzed data from the Nurses’ Health Study and the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study, two robust studies that included more than 100,000 adults who were monitored for up to three decades.  The researchers noted that both datasets “included detailed dietary information repeatedly collected every two to four years.” For the meta-analysis, the researchers pooled data on fruit and veggie intake and death from 26 studies that...
    Harvard University scientists believe they've found the ideal diet for living a longer, healthier life: Eating three servings of vegetables and two servings of fruit a day.   Just about any doctor or diet will encourage you that fruits and vegetables are a crucial source of the nutrients we need on a daily basis, but you might find wildly different advice on how much of each to eat, depending on where you look.  But that Harvard team thinks they've found the Goldie Locks of fruit and veg, and they say the perfect pairing will add years to your lifespan.  Currently it's a rare American who gets the recommended two servings of fruit and three servings of vegetables a day: Only one in 10 people in the US stick to the ideal balance according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data.  People who eat more fruits and vegetables are the least likely to die of any cause, found the Harvard study, but the benefits leveled off at two servings of fruit and three of vegetables  About 16...
    We're all regularly told we should be eating five portions of fruit and vegetables every day to stay healthy.  Now, scientists have revealed two portions of fruit and three portions of vegetables is the optimal combination for a longer life.  US researchers, who looked at data representing nearly 2 million adults worldwide, found this mix was associated with the lowest risk of death. Eating any more than five portions of fruit and vegetables a day (400g) was also not linked with any additional reduced risk of mortality.   Researchers also found that not all fruits and vegetables offer the benefit, even though current dietary recommendations generally treat them all the same.  Starchy vegetables, such as peas and corn, fruit juices and potatoes were not associated with any reduced risk of death.  Eating about two servings daily of fruits and three servings daily of vegetables was associated with the greatest longevity in the analysis of studies representing nearly 2 million adults worldwide WHAT'S ONE PORTION? One portion weighs 80g, which is roughly equivalent to:  - 1 to 2 slices of large fruit (mango, pineapple) ...

    In botanical terms, a fruit is the part of the plant that contains seeds. Fruits develop from the flower ovary after pollination and subsequent fertilization, thus forming a protective covering over the seeds. On the other hand, vegetables are all other parts of the plant like roots, stems and leaves. Following the premises of botany, apples, pumpkins and tomatoes are all fruits, while some roots such as beets, turnips or potatoes are vegetables. Also belonging to the group of vegetables are leaves such as kale, spinach and lettuce and various stems such as broccoli or celery. However, in culinary and gastronomic terms the perception is quite different. While some foods they are fruits botanically speaking, As it has a salty flavor, chefs consider it vegetables. This happens with some botanical fruits such as eggplants, peppers, and tomatoes.
    Microplastics have been discovered in apples, carrots, pears, broccoli and lettuce, studies have revealed. Root vegetables including radishes, turnips and parsnips could also be contaminated with the man-made waste, prompting fears over the health impact.  The tiny pollutants are thought to have been sucked into plants roots with water, and then travelled up the stem into the leaves and, where possible, fruits. Scientists have argued for decades that this was 'impossible', claiming they were 'too large' to fit through the pores in the roots. Microplastics have previously been identified in meats including chicken, canned fish and shellfish. A separate study published this week found that plants containing microplastics grew smaller with shorter roots, reducing their yield and nutritional value.  Microplastics in apples (left) and in carrots (right). Scientists found that these were absorbed by plants roots and travelled up the stem The microplastics were identified in fruit and vegetable purchased at these six stores in the Sicilian city of Catania, Italy 'We've known for years that plastics are in our air, ocean and soil. And now, finally,...
