"So the question is, , is fish oil with PRM's more effective than fish oil without it. . Including, , PRM's and a fish oil supplement may be awaited, , distinguish your product in a very crowded marketplace, , and then to sell it at a premium price. . But there doesn't appear to be any published research in humans showing that taking a supplement containing PRM's would accomplish anything more than supplementing with fish oil. . Get this. . I even stumbled across a couple of supplements where P. R. M. stood for pre resolving. . Instead of crow resolving mediators and the marketing material explains that pre resolving mediators are the precursors that the body needs to make pro resolving mediators in other words plain old fish oil. . As for the actual crow resolving mediators, , there's actually very little research of any kind to speak of remember it's only been a few years since we discovered them since then a few studies have looked at the effects of individual cell types in petri dishes but look what happens to a cell in a petri dish and what happens to cells, , tissues, , and organs, and , a living organism is a very different thing. . There are also some rodent studies that at least look at the effects of PRM's in Vivo, , but these are simply looking for mechanisms of action. . They don't compare the relative effectiveness of PRM's to other anti inflammatory agents such as fish oil. . Now, , I expect that more research will follow, , but it'll be a while before we get to the level of research that would test the safety and effectiveness of Pierra supplements. . Symptoms or on risk factors in human beings. . In the meantime I don't think there's any reason to shell out more for fish oil with PRM's. . But that also begs and interesting question and that is should healthcare providers even be selling supplements. . Now many healthcare practitioners recommend nutritional supplements to their patients into their clients, , and some of them also sell these products. . Often, this , is seen as a convenience to the. . Instead of having to hunt for specific product or research the differences between various brands you can simply walk out the door with your practitioners preferred brand in your hand and sometimes healthcare practitioners have access to brands and products that are not readily available through direct to consumer channels. . However, , it does introduce thorny issue. . We WanNa Trust that are practitioners advice and recommendations are based solely on our needs. . But when part of their income stream comes from supplements or other products that they sell, , it does introduce a conflict of interest. . A more expensive product usually brings in more revenue and so does a more aggressive supplementation regime. . I think it's hard for even the most ethical and well intentioned practitioner to be one hundred percent objective in this scenario. . A busy practitioner may not have time to thoroughly research and follow the science behind various nutrients. . So they rely pretty heavily on the information provided by the sales representative who's going to present their product in the best possible light, , exaggerating the positive effects and the positive cash flow and minimizing any gaps in the research or information about alternatives. . Sometimes it's not even the practitioner who's choosing these products but an office manager who may not have any training in nutrition, , but whose job it is to run a profitable or at least a solvent practice. . Now, , if all of the sounds kinda familiar, , it's because it's very similar to the model by which pharmaceuticals are sold to healthcare professionals most physician education on the effectiveness of drugs and medical devices is provided by the companies that sell them, , and as a result, , the drugs most frequently prescribed are not necessarily the most effective or the most cost effective choices, , and the same is true for nutritional supplements that are sold by healthcare practitioners even the really well meaning ones. .

Favorites for Justice Bucks. If you can decide on the two prices, participation may vary can be combined with any other offer or Combo. MEAL SINGLE ITEM AT regular price. Hello there welcome to the nutrition diva podcast. I'm Monica, Reina, gle and this speak. Our topic was suggested by nutrition diva listener who wrote nonstick silicone cookware, especially for baking seems really useful, but is it safe and also I'd like to stop using my plastic steamer that I rely on for steaming vegetables in the microwave. So, what type of container do you suggest? Well, let me to. To start by explaining what silicone is silicone type of synthetic rubber made from silicon, which is a naturally occurring element that's abundant in rock and sand, silicon or silica is used to make mortar glass cement bricks, and concrete and silicon is also used as a semiconductor in computers and cellphones, and that's why the Santa Clara Valley Near. San Francisco California is often referred to as Silicon Valley. Now silicon can also be modified or polymer. Is D- into a rubbery material? And that's what we call silicone silicone is not exactly new kitchens. Your grandmother probably used silicone based rubber spatulas. More recently it's been used to make nonstick cake and Muffin Pans, baking mats or liners and a whole range of other cooking gear. Now silicone cookie has several advantages. It's very lightweight flexible. It's easy to clean stain resistant, and nothing sticks to it. You can put it in the freezer in the dishwasher in the microwave or the oven, and it comes in all kinds of fun, bright colors, but is it too good to be true? Many of you have also written to me lately. About a new movie called dark waters. It's a legal thriller sort of a tradition of Erin Brockovich and it tells the story of P. F. O. A. A chemical that was originally used to make Teflon. The nonstick coating created the Chemical Company Dupont back in the nineteen forties, and then widely used to make nonstick cookware. While, it was eventually revealed that this supposedly safe compound can accumulate in the tissues of humans and other animals, and can lead to serious health problems. pfos was eventually implicated in multiple cases of cancer and other serious health problems and Dupont eventually settled a class action suit for six hundred seventy one million dollars. PF has no longer Houston Teflon and it's important to note that. The health problems that were attributed to PF OEI were not linked to use of the nonstick cookware. Rather it was due to industrial dumping of this chemical into landfills and water supplies, which exposed local residents to large amounts of the chemical. Even though pf Oh is no longer used in the US it does persist in our environment and in human tissues, and it's been replaced by similar chemicals that some people might pose similar risks and given the LAX regulation of industrial chemicals in the United States which is so dramatically illustrated in the movie dark waters. It's not an unreasonable concern. All of which is to say that I can understand why people feel a little wary about silicone. Is this just another time bomb that has not yet exploded but I think I can set your mind at ease here. Silicone is a very inert, non reactive substance. It's very stable at high heats, and there appear to be no reports or concerns from industry, watchdogs, environmental groups or citizen activists about leaching off gassing, or in any way interacting with.

You could use Theresa or soy trees Oh like. I don't know I. think that'd be doing this a lot more in the future, so thank again. I don't know if Tara listen to our show, but thank you. Tara's a genius idea. sometimes you gotta be reminded of stuff and it on I'll share the recipe that I used in the show. Notes you know for today, So. That's truly Kelly's sounds good. You know it makes me think I should have put cheeky laze in my my kitchen book because you can use a lot of homemade sauces. Kanta with tomatoes as your tomato that would have been on I'm sure there's another canning book coming type. Now yet, but someday. Well, I WANNA. Talk to you about You know what is a sensitive topic I know not everybody wants to talk about weight and weight loss, but it's something I. Think about a lot and I wanted to Share something with you. You and I've talked about this privately. Yeah, but I I kind of wanted to wait a long time. To tell. Other people about this because I, personally have Yoyo diets so many times like I didn't want to be telling people about something that I did to lose weight, and then have it just be like another Yo yo diet, but now it's been two full years. Yeah, since I wrapped up this weight loss program and I weigh the same thing. Now's I did on ended. That's pretty. That's pretty good. Yeah, so here's the full story. You know in. Five minutes or less. So, let's go back in time to the summer of twenty seventeen. I had just been diagnosed with high cholesterol. Well what happened was I, said to her I can change my diet and I think what she heard me. Say was I'm going to go on a diet. which isn't what I said at all what I meant and she said Oh sometimes losing weight can take care of it all by itself, and then I was like no, I. Don't think I can lose weight, but I can't change diet. which was really how I felt at the time. I thought we lost was beyond me. I was You know by you know how doctors are like according to the BMI Chart. I was overweight at that time, and my cholesterol was high, and so of course, my doctor, you know. Of course, that's what she would say. Whether or not, that's good or bad is like a whole other story, but anyway it was something that was in my mind, and then my favorite nutritionists in the World Monica Reina, who host the nutrition diva podcast, which I'm sure. I've talked about on this show before launching her own weight loss program, and of course I had all the normal skepticism about weight loss programs I flunked out of all of them, we weight watchers I've been on and off like I. Don't know half a dozen times in my life. But, she was promising something totally different, and she was really positioning her. plan sort of like something opposition to the whole thirty. There would be no restriction. There'd be no specific diet default. There'd be no goal weight you know. So I was like intrigued by all of this stuff, and as such a big fan of her, and I trusted her so much and I was like really into trying to. Get Down my cholesterol. By any means necessary I was like okay. I'm in, so it was year long program and I talked to you about this. Yeah, remember yeah. They take a very behavioral Monica works with a partner on this program. His name is brock on Armstrong and he's like a fitness professional. But again there's no workouts. It's really all about like finding movement that you like it feels natural to you, and and and doing it learning how to incorporate that in your life, and it's all it's all behavioral modification type stuff thinking about what you're doing and why Mindfulness like awareness, making very small tweaks looking back at your day and the things that you decided from food perspective, and like assessing whether or not they work for you. A Monica really believed there's a million ways to add to add up to a healthy diet, and like they definitely do not prescribe plant based diet or any other specific kind of Diet So you know week by Week Lessons There's like coaching It's it's really a mindset thing more than like a prescriptive food thing, but it helps me a lot i. it really made me. And if you have asked me at the beginning of this pro program, what like my goal? Weight was I would have said like one hundred and twenty five pounds, or something like that, but during Miss program i. Monica teaches at your quote, unquote go! It should be like A way that you can sustain without having to suffer anything like hunger are going without your favorite foods, and where you're come, feel comfortable on your body and are reasonably. Healthy you know, you're healthy within like your doctors metrics for your whatever now. I and so I approached it with that in mind, and it turned out that my. Quote Unquote Goal, weight or ideal weight with not in fact, one hundred twenty five pounds with something quite a bit higher than that, but you know what I am. All those things today. Yeah, I am comfortable in my body. I am healthy and my weight is very stable now. which is something I've never had before my life So I the reason I wanted to tell her about this Right now, though because this program is called, way less the one of the things. They say a lot is like you're. You're working on becoming someone who weighs less. You're going on a diet which I found to be very true. And, so it's starting again. It's your program and registration is opening now in it It's GonNa Start later this month. So I thought if anybody was During this I know, a lot of people have felt a little out of control around food, maybe a little Maybe they feel like they're struggling. Maybe they're like tempted to start something like the whole thirty in which there was like a more sane alternative So I. I think it might be something that some people might want to look into and I have become friendly with Monica in the intervening years and She has offered a discount to local mouthful is there so if you go to way less dot life, and you want to sign up and her local mouthful. When you check out and you'll get you know a small discount. and I'm not getting any type of kickback for this I just wanted. Wanted to share something that has really worked for.

"Hello and welcome to the nutrition diva podcast I'm your host Monica Reina. A listener recently asked me to look into an ingredient called glucose syrup. This is often used as a sweetener in processed foods, such as cookies, candy and other confections, and she'd read that it's a very concentrated source of sugar that supposedly contains four times the amount of sugar and calories per tablespoon as regular table sugar, the implication of course that one should avoid foods made with glucose syrup. I tracked this specific claim to an article written by a Dietitian for website called health line now this is a site that I consider to be a very reliable source in general I have found their nutrition articles to be thorough, accurate and very well referenced and sure enough. That statement that Glucose Syrup contains four times. The sugar and calories found in regular sugar, was footnoted and linked to the USDA's food and nutrient database the gold standard for nutrient data. One footnote linked to the nutritional analysis for light. Corn, Syrup, which is another name for Glucose Syrup. One tablespoon contains seventeen grams of sugar and sixty two calories. The other footnote linked to the nutritional analysis for regular table sugar one tablespoon contains four grams of sugar and sixteen calories. Case closed. Actually make that case overturned on appeal. Because unfortunately, this second listing was inaccurate. You see in addition to the tens of thousands of foods that have been analyzed by the USDA to create their amazing food nutrient database, they also include as a public service nutrient information for tens of thousands of additional packaged and processed foods, and they base that on information that's been provided by the manufacturer, and there are frequent errors. In fact, there's a disclaimer right on the page that health line cited stating that the info was provided by food brand owners who are responsible for the descriptions, nutrient data and the ingredient information. Well. In this case, it was just a simple typo. The manufacturer chose the wrong serving size the nutrient info that they uploaded four grams of sugar and sixteen calories. For a teaspoon of sugar, not a tablespoon, and for those of you who don't bake or maybe used metric measures. A tablespoon contains three teaspoons. So a tablespoon of Corn Syrup does not contain four times as many calories as a tablespoon of sugar, it is actually about a third higher. It contains seventeen grams of sugar versus twelve grams, and this is simply due to the fact that sugar crystals aren't as dense as sugar syrup. Something that manufacturers adjust for in their recipes. Look if you're concerned about the sugar or the calorie content of packaged food, it doesn't really matter how many tablespoons of an ingredient were added to the recipe. What matters is how many grams of sugar end up in each serving of the finished product something that's disclosed usually accurately on the nutrition facts label look mistakes happen and I sent an email to the Dietitian who wrote the article, alerting her to the error, and I hope that she and health line will be able to correct it. But. Here's a quick tip for anyone who's using the USDA's database to look up nutrient info. You can filter those listings so that they don't show the manufacturer provided listings. The USDA data is perfect, but it's generally much more complete and more reliable than the manufacturer supplied data. But I still have one other problem with this article on corn or Glucose Syrup because the author goes on to write that quote Consuming Glucose Syrup regularly may increase your risk of obesity, high blood, sugar, poor, dental, health, high blood, pressure, and Heart, disease, and quote, and once again she includes citations this time. She's linking to articles published in medical journals. But these articles are not about corn syrup per se they refer to all added sugars,

"Monica Reina and this? IS THE NUTRITION DIVA podcast welcome? Recently a listener posted a question about powdered milk on my facebook page. She was wondering whether it's okay to use dried or powdered milk in place a fresh milk. Powdered milk, of course less expensive than fresh milk. It's relatively nonperishable. It's lightweight and portable, and for those reasons, many people include powdered milk in their emergency food stores. In terms of nutrients like. Protein and potassium dried. Milk is comparable to fresh milk, and like fresh milk dried milk powder is usually fortified with vitamins, a and d. you can add dried milk to breads and other baked goods, soups, sauces, smoothies, or other recipes in order to add extra protein and other nutrients. But if you research this question on the Internet, you will quickly come across some sources, claiming that powdered milk is extremely bad for you because it contains oxidized cholesterol, allegedly the most dangerous type of cholesterol. Some of these websites also claimed that powdered milk is added to all low fat and fat free milk in order to give it more body, and they say that there's no way for you to tell whether or not your milk contains added dry milk, because the passengers are not required to list powdered milk in the ingredient list. I mean pretty scary stuff, right? Well as is typical of the nutrition information that you find online, the claims about powdered milk are a jumble of fact, half truths and outright fallacies, so let's take a closer look at the properties and the potential dangers of powdered milk in order to make dried milk pasteurized milk is I concentrated through evaporation, and then it's usually sprayed into a heated tank, and that causes the remaining water to quickly evaporate leaving behind dried milk solids. Milk can also be freeze dried, and because of the lower processing temperatures freeze dried may actually taste more like fresh milk when it's reconstituted, but this much more expensive process, and therefore it's a lot less common. It is true that packager could add dried milk to fresh milk, and because of the way the FDA labeling regulations define milk. They would not be required to list powdered milk in the ingredient list. However, it is absolutely not true that all skim and low fat milk has dried milk added to it. In fact, you might have to work pretty hard to find some that does have dried milk attitude. I spoke with representatives for half a dozen different brands of milk, including national brands like stony field farms and horizon as well as my local store brand,.

"Hello Everyone Monica Reina. Go the nutrition diva here. Several of you have asked me to offer some perspective on a new study. That's been in the news. Tests wrote to me a few days ago. I heard about a steady finding a seventy to eighty percent chance of breast cancer in women who consumed two to three cups of milk a day. That seems pretty high. I feel like everyone would have breast cancer. Seeing as the dietary guidelines recommend two to three cups per day. What are your thoughts regarding this study? Do you think we should stop consuming dairy when I I read her email? I wondered if tests had misunderstood. Or maybe just misstated the findings but then I found a press release from Loma Linda University in which they quoted the lead researcher Gary Fraser as saying that his study provides quote fairly strong evidence that either dairy milk or some other factor closely related to drinking. Dairy milk is a cause of breast cancer. In women and quote. He then goes on to say quote for those drinking two to three cups per day. The risk increased to seventy to eighty percent and quote in other words. Eight out of every ten women who drink three cups of milk a day. We'll get breast cancer as test points out. This doesn't square with reality does it? And indeed. That's not even remotely what the study found now before I continue. I just WanNa take a moment to reiterate something I've said many times before in the past dairy is not essential to a healthy diet. You and your kids can get all the calcium protein and other nutrients you need without consuming milk or dairy products..

That will allegedly strengthen your resistance to disease or infection. They're always popular during cold and flu season and right now more than ever. It is true that various nutrients are essential to proper immune function. If you were malnourished your ability to resist infection will almost certainly be impaired. Eating a healthy and balanced diet will help ensure that you're getting all the protein vitamins and minerals that you need for your immune system and all your other biological systems to function properly but doubling or tripling up on the recommended amounts of foods or nutrients doesn't necessarily make your immune system function more properly.

"Hello I'm Monica Reina. And you're listening to the nutrition. Diva podcast welcome. November is national diabetes awareness month. This is a time when health nutrition. Educators try to increase the public awareness and understanding of a disease that affects thirty million. Americans and threatens seventy million more so today. I'M GONNA try to clear up. Six popular misconceptions about type two diabetes which is by far the most common form of diabetes. It's also the most preventable support for this. podcast comes from Pete. and Jerry's varies organic eggs. Pete Jerry's has done one thing for generation produce eggs. You can be proud of their small family. Farmers across the country take pride in raising hens and providing certified organic free range eggs that meet the highest standards. They do it because it's the right way to farm and also because they want you to be able to believe in what you buy learn more at Pete and Jerry's dot com that's Pete and G. E. R. Y. S. DOT COM in type two diabetes. Either the body does not produce enough insulin or the cells. Start to ignore that insulin. And as as a result your blood sugar stays too high one in ten Americans has type two diabetes and a quarter of these don't even realize that they have have the disease and for every person with type two diabetes. There are two more who are considered pre diabetic. meaning that their blood sugar levels are in the high normal range range an old medical texts. You'll sometimes type. Two Diabetes referred to as adult onset diabetes because this condition usually usually developed in mid life unfortunately as rates of childhood. Obesity have gone up type. Two diabetes is now routinely diagnosed in kids and and the earlier. Someone develops diabetes. The more likely it is that they will eventually experience serious complications. Having type two diabetes increases your risk for heart disease his blindness nerve damage and kidney damage. especially if you're disease is poorly managed however people can live long and healthy lives with diabetes. Beatty's if they take proper care of themselves in some cases it's even possible to reverse the disease. So with that in my. Let's take a look at some of the most common myths and misunderstandings understandings about type. Two Diabetes Myth number. One all type. Two diabetics will need to take insulin or other anti diabetic drugs for life. This is not true. Many newly diagnosed diabetics will not have to take medication if they make appropriate lifestyle modifications such as managing edging their Diet exercising and losing weight if they need to even diabetics who are currently taking medications can sometimes reduce or even eliminate the need for these medications by losing weight and managing their diet better. Now you shouldn't discontinue medications without checking with your doctor of course but for type. Two diabetics headaches. This is a real possibility myth number. Two diabetics shouldn't eat fruit now. It's true fruit. Does contain sugar and carbohydrates hydrates which do affect your blood sugar levels and this leads many to assume that it's off limits for diabetics but fruit can be a very healthy part of your diet even even if you are diabetic. Fruit contains lots of valuable nutrients and it doesn't a milder effect on blood sugar than other types of sweets. A healthy diabetic meal plan might contain two or three servings of whole fruit every day. Myth number three diabetics only need to pay attention to carbohydrates not protein gene or fat will carbohydrate. Rich foods do have the most dramatic effect on blood. Sugar and these are foods like breads cereal. Pasta Rice `tatoes and of course desserts. So if you're diabetic you'll definitely need to watch these types of foods but you need to pay attention to the rest of your Diet Diet too because if you're eating too many calories even if they're not coming from carbohydrates that's GonNa make it hard for you to maintain your weight and that's it's GonNa make it much harder for you to manage the disease. So should diabetics go on a low carb diet. What can you eat. If you're taking medications for your diabetes of answers to these questions right after this brief break to thank our sponsors support for today's show comes from bare minerals creators of clean beauty.

Tricia diva listener, Leslie, gearing galley who wrote I was recently at my local health food store and overheard a sales person from a company that sells a two milk touting its superiority over regular milk. She was saying that the protein that's in regular milk, but not in a two milk causes everything from diabetes to autism to autoimmune disease as a registered nurse and science minded person. I was immediately skeptical could you do show on this topic? Well, I have to applaud Leslie's skepticism. A to milk is about twice as expensive as regular milk. But is it really better for us? Or perhaps the more pressing question is whether regular milk is actually linked to although scary diseases. A one and eight two are both types of casing, and that's one of the major kinds of protein in milk now proteins as you probably remember are made up of individual amino acids strung together into long long strings. There are only a couple of dozen different amino acids, but they can be combined in different sequences to form thousands of different proteins. It's sort of like the way the twelve tones and musical scale can be combined into an infinite number of melodies. The only difference between the A1. and the aid to milk protein is that the sixty seventh amino acid in the chain is different. Now, your body digests casing and all proteins by snipping, these long strings of amino acids into shorter segments called peptides, and some of those may have biological activity in the body collagen and insulin are both peptides, for example. The slight difference in the amino acid sequence of a one and a two casing results in the creation of slightly different peptides when these milk proteins are digested. So when we digest the a one form of casing it produces a peptide called BCM seven and two this peptide is not produced in the digestion of eight to casing. But so what does the BBC em seven peptide do any harm? We'll take a look at that in just a minute.

And if you're longtime listener, thank you for tuning in and also for sharing the podcast with your friends and family our show today received support from Panama City Beach, Florida, are you dreaming of a beach vacation getaway to the sugar white sands and turquoise waters of Panama City Beach, Florida. You'll discover endless family fun heart pounding frills, EKO, adventure and romance. So make it memorable and make it yours at Panama City beach. The real fun beach plan your escape today. Visit Panama City beach dot com. Today's episode was suggested by listener James who called into the nutrition diva listener line with this question. Hey, Monica this ah, James. I was wondering if you could devote an episode. On calories, and what they are how they're measured and how we process them, even though they're just a measurement of food and not actual food and what a bomb Colorado or is. And all the problems with counting calories. So that would be awesome love to hear that. But cast. Thanks. Thanks for this. Great topic. James? So let's start with what a calorie is. And how we know. How many calories food contains a calorie is a unit of measure like an inch or a kilogram only instead of measuring length or wait a calorie measures energy, technically a calorie is the amount of energy it takes to raise one gram of water by one degree celsius. Calories can be measured using something called a bomb calorie meter, isn't that a fun name? You might even have built a crude version of a bomb calorie meter in sixth grade science class in broad strokes. You submerge a chamber in a bucket of water, and you put a thermometer in the water, and then inside that submerged chamber, you set something on fire the heat generated by the combustion raises the temperature of the water in the bucket, and you can measure that with the thermometer, and then you can calculate the amount of energy or calories were in the thing that you set on fire. So we used to use bomb calorimeters to calculate. How many calories given food contains these days? However, it's much more common to estimate the number of calories based on how much protein fat and carbohydrate food contains and those amounts can be determined through chemical analysis. Now when we're using the word calorie in relation to food, by the way, we are actually referring to kill calories. Sometimes you'll see calories abbreviated as k Cal. And that's what that refers to when we say that food contains sixty calories. It really contains sixty thousand calories, but although zeros would be a pain to deal with. So we just LOP them off. And believe me, this drives physicists and chemists. Absolutely nuts. But why do we need to know? How many calories food contains while when we digest food? We don't literally set it on fire in our stomachs, but our bodies do release it's stored heat or energy. And then we either use that energy to power our biological processes. Or if we've taken in more energy than we need. We store it for future use if we habitually taken more energy than we use we gain weight. So we use calories as a guide. Line to determine how much food energy a person needs. We need enough to fuel growth and maintenance, but not so much that we start storing a lot of fat. There are calculators. I'm sure you've seen them that can estimate your daily calorie needs taking into account, your age, sex, height inactivity level, and then there are databases and labels to tell you. How many calories are in various foods? However as James implies in his question. There are a few problems with this system. First of all those calorie needs estimates can be way off you can plug your details into an online calculator and be told that you use eighteen hundred forty seven calories per day. But look you need to take that number with a truck load of salt energy expenditure varies hugely from person to person. Even if you and I are the exact same height weight age and sex, and we do the exact same workout. You could burn four hundred calories more or less than I do every day and energy needs can also be affected by our diets genetics body. Position hormones drugs and a million other factors and moving targets and just to make the whole situation just a little bit more ridiculous. Those readouts on your treadmill peleton fit watch or diet tracker that tell you how many calories you burn doing various activities are only slightly more accurate than asking the magic eight ball. But wait. There's more calorie counts for foods are also not as reliable as you think those numbers that are listed in your calorie counting app represent average values for foods. So even if you are measuring or weighing your food with great precision. Well, this apple may be a little bit sweeter than average that banana might be a little less ripe. This not might have a little bit more fat even for packaged, and processed foods the calorie count that's shown on the nutrition facts label is just an average of variation of. Plus or minus ten percent of that value would not be at all surprising. Secondly, those calorie counts are estimated using formulas that may or may not be one hundred percent reliable. It was recently discovered, for example, that the standard formulas that were in use for most of the last hundred years where overestimating the amount of energy that we humans are able to liberate from nuts. More modern method suggests that almonds for example, provide about twenty percent less energy or fewer calories than we previously thought. And finally, our bodies are not bomb calorimeters like a campfire that might go out and leave a few unburned chunks of wood our bodies don't extract all the energy from our food, some unknown and variable amount of that energy will pass through us unabsorbed. So what is the point of paying attention to calories? I'll have my answer for you. Right. After these brief announcements from our show sponsors, I'm guessing you probably don't use a phone. And that was developed in the nineteen forties. Right. But that's when the heap filter long considered a benchmark in air purifying was developed, but now molecule has introduced a breakthrough science that goes above and beyond that standard and destroys air pollutants at a molecular level molecule captures. Completely destroys the full spectrum of indoor air pollutants including those one thousand times smaller than what a heap of filter can catch in a study of forty nine.

Now, some protein foods that are higher in fat such as fried chicken or pepperoni, our foods that you might want to limit but not necessarily because they're high in fat fried foods, for example, tend to be high in h n es these are toxic compounds that are formed when polyunsaturated oils I repeatedly heated or held at high temperatures. Most restaurants, not only fry foods and polyunsaturated oils, but they reuse the oil over and over again, I talk more about that. In my episode, which are best for cooking now, the cured meats like pepperoni and ham and bacon are high in nitrates and nitrites which when combined with protein can form toxic compounds in the gut called nitrosamines. And this might be why it's that are high in cured and processed meats are linked with a higher risk of colon cancer. But remember the dose makes the poison. It's okay to enjoy fry. Foods or cured meats every once in a while. But these probably aren't foods that she want to be eating every day. And here's a fun fact eating lots of fresh vegetables can help to neutralize the formation of those nitrosamines and the gut so if you are indulging in some cured meats don't skimp on the salad or the crew tastes. You know, judging meet strictly by its fat content can lead to some ridiculous conclusions serving of salmon has three times as much fat as a serving of ham, for example. But the fat in salmon is in the form of heart healthy omega threes while that lean ham is high salt and nitrites. We're also being encouraged to seek out more plant based sources of protein these days such as legs seeds and nuts now leg you are certainly low in fat, but nuts and seeds are up to eighty percent fat. And here's the thing. We don't eat protein. We eat food and most protein foods are going to provide a mixture of protein and other nutrients such as fat or carbohydrate, but more to the point most of our meals are going to contain more than one food. So are evaluating the nutritional makeup of various foods, we really need to take the whole diet into consideration. If you get a lot of your protein from leg you. For example. You're also going to be getting quite a bit of carbohydrate in the process. So you might not have quite as much remind your plate for grains, or starchy vegetables. If you get a lot of your protein from nuts and seeds on the other hand will you're going to be getting a lot of fat along with that. So you might not have quite as much room in your meal plan for avocados or whipped cream. And if you enjoy cuts of meat or types of fish that are relatively high in fat. Well, you might not have quite as much room for nuts or high fat dairy. I think you get my point. And if you're interested in how to get more protein for fewer calories, you can check out my episode on protein density. But I think it's time to retire the notion of lean protein how about you, this is Monica Reina.

And you can even download episodes for those times when you've gone off the grid to get all that newfound balance to your life. So start the year off right and start listening to podcast on Spotify today. Perhaps you saw the headlines last week about a new analysis finding that people who consume a lot of fiber are significantly less likely to die from heart disease, stroke type, two diabetes and colon cancer. How could such a frumpy nutrient makes a big difference in our health after all fiber is by definition in digestible by humans, it provides no vitamins, minerals or energy and yet fiber intake is consistently linked with lower disease risk. I think there are a number of possible explanations. First fiber has a very charming habit of helping to take out the trash insoluble fiber acts as a sort of broom sweeping waste material out of the large intestine and lowering the risk of colon. Cancer soluble fiber on the other hand acts more like a sponge sopping up cholesterol, thereby lowering the risk of heart disease. Secondly, although fiber is not. Decibel by humans. It does provide a lot of good nutrition for the beneficial bacteria that live in our intestines diets that are higher in fiber tend to give rise to a more robust and varied population of intestinal bacteria. These little beastie as we are learning influence our health in a wide variety of ways affecting everything from appetite to immune function metabolism. And even our mood. Thirdly foods that are high in fiber are often high in other nutrients as well such as antioxidants, Fido, stairwells league, NHS and minerals. If your diet is high in fiber, and you're getting most of that fiber from whole foods, then the chances are good that your diet is high in a variety of disease, fighting nutrients and finally your risk of heart disease, stroke type, two diabetes, colon cancer and many other diseases is lower when you are not overweight. Wait fiber can play a positive role in weight loss and weight management. And that could also help explain why people who eat more fiber have a lower disease risk, but the role of fiber in weight loss is often misunderstood take. For example. This Email I recently received from Bill he wrote if I eat a high fat meal, I sometimes follow it immediately with a bowl of very high fiber cereal thinking that this fiber will help compensate for the high fat intake or otherwise bad food choices that I made does this strategy. Make sense should fiber be thought of as a way to discount other food choices you make you know builder's note saying that if you find yourself in a ditch the first thing you should do is stop digging. And similarly if you're in a situation where you've over eaten. Eating more is rarely your best move eating fiber or taking fiber supplements. Won't cancel out calories. That you've already eaten. If you chase a high-calorie or a high fat meal with a bowl of high fiber cereal, you're just adding yet more calories to what you've already eaten and increasing the load on your digestive system. Now, it is true that meals that are higher in fiber may cause a more moderate rise in blood sugar than meals that are low in fiber. But adding the fiber after the fact is probably not a terribly effective strategy. If you've over eaten or even if you haven't a better plan for reducing the impact of a meal on your blood sugar is to head out for a walk, even though fiber can't undo the damage from overeating. It can still be helpful in managing your weight. And I'll explain how right after a break to thank this week sponsors. I I have to tell you about this new set of cleaning products that I've been using from branch basics. I am really very impressed. It's very cool.

When you ask people about the safety of our food supply pesticides, nearly always top the list of concerns specifically, people worry that exposure to pesticides from their food increases their risk of cancer on a gut level. The seems like a no brainer when we consume food that has been treated with pesticides. We consume trace amounts of these chemicals and many of these compounds have been categorized as possible or probable carcinogens. How could taking in more pesticides not increase cancer risk? And yet the available evidence doesn't seem to line up with this seemingly obvious conclusion in twenty fourteen for example, a ten year study of more than half a million British women found that those who always eight organic food had essentially the same risk of getting cancer as those who never did this year. However, a French study seemed to find the opposite researchers analyzed the diets of almost seven. Thousand people and concluded that a higher frequency of organic food consumption was associated with a reduced risk of cancer. Finally, a study confirmed what a lot of people felt they already knew eating organic can reduce your risk of getting cancer, duh case closed. Well, having looked at the details of this study. I'm not ready to close that case just yet. But before we dig into that let's take a brief detour to examine another closely related belief that eating more fruits and vegetables should reduce your cancer risk. According to the FDA's pesticide monitoring program, your biggest dietary exposure to pesticides is from the non-organic fruits and vegetables that you consume the more non-organic fruits and vegetables, you eat the higher, you're likely pesticide exposure and pesticides give you cancer. Right. And yet some study suggests that people who eat more fruits and vegetables have lower incidence of cancer. Even if they are eating conventional, fruits and vegetables. For example, a long-term study of almost two hundred thousand women found that those who averaged five or more servings of fruits and vegetables a day cut their risk of breast cancer by ten percent compared with those who eight just two and a half servings a day or fewer, and that's actually close to the average intake. Now, a ten percent reduction in risk is fairly modest instead of ten out of two hundred women getting a breast cancer diagnosis only nine out of two hundred still if you're the one who dodged that. Bullet those extra servings of peas and carrots, probably seem more than worth it. Other studies have found only a weak association between fruit and vegetable consumption and cancer risk or none at all. And the surprises. A lot of people. After all we talked so much about the cancer fighting phytochemicals found in fruits and vegetables, you'd think the cancer fighting affect of eating them would be more dramatic. But I think the link between fruit and vegetable intake and cancer risk might be more indirect eating more fruits and vegetables can help you maintain a healthier body weight and that is unequivocally associated with the lower cancer risk. But the point I'm trying to make here is that if pesticide exposure increased cancer risk, we might expect to see more cancer in people who ate more conventionally grown, fruits and vegetables because their exposure to pesticides would be larger. And yet this does not appear to be the case while eating more fruits and vegetables may not reduce your cancer risk as much as we might have hoped. It certainly doesn't increase it. So with that in mind now. Let's take a look at the details of this new French study right after this word from our sponsor support for today.

Certainly smart. Speakers are going to help as well. One thing I've seen in the past is every once in a while somebody takes a run at the word podcast has been weird history. I think it grew out of the the ipod and all that audible tried to call it something different. But have you pretty well? We're stuck with that word or or do you? That it's going to ten years from now people say what what's podcast that that's a word which doesn't fit what we're doing. Now. You know, a lot of people wanna call it audio on demand audio originals. But I think the word podcast is here to stay. And I think that discussion I remember being embedded in a few years ago. But I think it's probably been dismissed by. Now, the word is mainstream. And I think it's here to stay. Yeah. I agree. Let's finish. With some things that you're enjoying on either audio book podcast or book in any medium. What's what's the couple of the best stories that you're currently immersed in? So at great, you know, I love all of our own shows, we have a wonderful series that actually was just talked about in today's edition of hot pot is a matter of fact, our nutrition diva is celebrating her five hundredth episode. And over the next several weeks. We'll be doing a wonderful series called the faces of farming. So encourage everyone to check that out. I I think it's just so to me I'm just so proud of the fact that this is one of our longest winning shows. And over a ten year period. Monica Reina has produced over five hundred high quality episodes, and I think people will listen to the series and think she still without question on the leading edge of the nutrition space in terms of the coverage, and you know, hasn't skipped a beat just continues to feed her listeners, no pun intended. Incredible content that really resonates with them. And she listens to her fans, and in is engaged with her fans in a way that you know. I don't want to stray too much off topic. But she is very protective of her listeners. As most of our hosts are as we are. And as a matter of fact, we turn away advertisers, all the time from that show because their philosophy and approach is not in sync with what she knows her fans have become accustomed to. I'll give you a quick example. We had a consumer company come to us. And they wanted to talk about certain bread product that was filled with nooks and crannies and would be great with butter. And while Monica was perfectly happy to talk about, you know, a bread product in a way that made sense. She wanted to talk about it topped with fresh fruit or with a a nut butter or something that made more sense. But you know, her fans would see right through alive host read add coming from her talking about engulfing your breakfast treat.
