  • New US Dietary Guidelines have been designed to help Americans choose and maintain a healthy diet

     

     Dietary Guidelines for Americans | iloveaceite News Dietary Guidelines for Americans | iloveaceite News

    The Dietary Guidelines for Americans were created by the US Departments of Health and Human Services and Agriculture and were updated in 2016. The guidelines are intended to help Americans make healthier food and beverage choices.

    This is important because 2 of every 3 Americans are either overweight or obese, and obesity is one of the most important causes of preventable diseases like heart attack and stroke. A summary of these guidelines was published in the February 2, 2016, issue of JAMA.

    The 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend limiting intake of saturated fats to 10% of total daily calories and, when possible, replacing foods high in saturated fats with foods high in unsaturated fats.

  • Fresh veggies and fancy extra virgin olive oil are cheaper than even the cheapest USDA-recommended diet

    A new study out of the Miriam Hospital and the Rhode Island Community Food Bank says that fresh veggies and fancy extra virgin olive oil are cheaper than even the cheapest USDA-recommended diet.

    The study showed almost miraculous results, although none of them will be surprising for a native of countries like Spain and Italy, where such diets are still typical. Recipes were developed by Flynn at the Miriam Hospital, in collaboration with the Rhode Island Community Food Bank. These were based on "plant-based olive oil diet recipes," and clients of the Food Bank were asked to use these recipes three times a week (they actually averaged 2.8 times a week).

    A diet based on fresh fruit and vegetables, along with extra-virgin olive oil, is perceived by consumers as an expensive option, but the reverse is true: a Mediterranean-style diet costs around $750 per person less per year than the USDA’s cheapest healthy recommendations.

    "Extra-virgin olive oil is also thought to be expensive," says lead author Mary Flynn, "but we suspected it was meat that made a diet expensive, and extra-virgin olive oil is cheaper than even small amounts of meat. We expected the two diets to be similar in fruit and vegetable content, but our plant-based diet was substantially cheaper, and featured a lot more fruits and vegetables and whole grains."

    The United States Department of Agriculture and Department of Health and Human Services have released the eighth edition of its Dietary Guidelines for Americans on January 7.

    Updated every five years, the Guidelines incorporate current scientific and medical knowledge to improve health and reduce risk of chronic diseases by promoting healthy eating habits of Americans. According to the report, “About half of all American adults have one or more preventable, diet-related chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and overweight and obesity.”

    Unlike previous guidelines that recommended consumption of food groups and nutrients, the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines focus on healthy eating patterns. The aim is to give Americans greater flexibility in terms of choosing a diet that would work for them in terms of meeting their individual preferences and nutrient needs.

  • Seven foods that can help protect you against breast cancer

     
    Seven breast cancer-busting foodsIt´s estimated that breast cancer kills 12,000 UK women each year. And with more than 50,000 British women being diagnosed with breast cancer every year, it is important that you take every action to help prevent this disease.

    It’s well-established that your diet can significantly help reduce the risk of developing cancer. And growing evidence is showing that eating the right kind of foods plays an important part in helping to prevent breast cancer.
    Here are 7 foods that can help protect you against breast cancer:

    CRUCIFEROUS VEGETABLES: Cruciferous vegetables contain a group of substances, known as glucosinolates — sulphur-containing chemicals — which give these vegetables, like cauliflower, garlic, onions and cabbage, their bitter pungent flavour and strong fragrance. Studies have shown that glucosinolates help prevent DNA damage in cells and may also help induce the death of abnormal cells, which could reduce the risk of cancer.

    DARK GREEN LEAFY VEGETABLES: Studies have suggested that the antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin, found in dark green leafy vegetables like spinach and kale, can help reduce the risk of breast cancer. A meta-analysis that reviewed the relationship between breast cancer and vegetable consumption, concluded that the consumption of fruits and vegetables high in specific antioxidants (known as carotenoids) and vitamins (specifically vitamins A, C, and E) may help reduce the risk of premenopausal breast cancer.

    BEANS AND PULSES: The long-running Nurses Health Study found that the intake of beans and pulses, like lentils and chickpeas, was associated with a reduced risk of breast cancer. Apart from being loaded with nutrients like calcium, iron and B vitamins, beans and pulses also offer an excellent source of vegetable protein, which is especially beneficial when you are trying to avoid or cut down on eating meat.

    TOMATOES: The cancer-busting properties of tomatoes comes from their high antioxidant levels. Breast cancer expert, Dr. Tara Whyand, an oncology dietitian cancer nutrition adviser, says that consuming antioxidant rich foods like tomatoes, watermelon and papaya, which are all rich in the antioxidant lycopene, can help reduce your risk of developing breast cancer.

    EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL: Extra virgin olive oil is filled with antioxidants and cancer-fighting phytonutrients. Antioxidants reduce oxidisation — which increases levels of free radicals that are known to cause cancer — in the body. A study, carried out by the University of Navarra in Pamplona, showed that women who added extra virgin olive oil to their meals had a 62 per cent lower risk of breast cancer, compared to those with small or no extra virgin olive oil in their diet.

    OMEGA-3 FISH OILS: In two studies, from the Zhejiang University and the APCNS Center of Nutrition, researchers looked at the anti-cancer effects of omega-3 fatty acids (found in oily fish). In total 800,000 women participated in these studies and the researchers found that those women who had the highest intake of omega-3, also had the lowest risk of developing breast cancer. The results showed that the women who had the highest intake of omega-3 fatty acids had a 14 per cent reduced risk of breast cancer compared to those who consumed less omega-3s.

    FLAXSEEDS: Flaxseeds contains lignans which are a primary source of phytoestrogens — oestregen-like chemicals found in plant foods. In a study, published in Environmental Health Perspectives, researchers reported that the antioxidant activity of phytoestrogens make them “strong candidates for a role as natural cancer-protective compounds.” The researchers added that countries with the highest consumption of phytoestrogens also tend to have the lowest cancer rates.
