  • Diabetics Are Better Off Starting Their Day With an Omelet

    Diabetics Are Better Off Starting Their Day With an Omelet






    A low-carb breakfast helps reduce fluctuations in blood glucose levels throughout the day.

    After breakfast, blood sugar rises sharply, because cereals, toast, and fruits are often eaten for breakfast. (Someone will say that they have breakfast with fried chicken, sausages, or cutlets, but the fashion now is still for cereal and fruit breakfasts.)

    But cereals and fruits have a lot of carbohydrates, and that’s a “sugar splash” in the

  • Seven Types of Cancer That Can Be Prevented by Physical Activity

    Seven Types of Cancer That Can Be Prevented by Physical Activity




    After conducting a large-scale meta-analysis of nine scientific studies covering 750,000 people, US researchers have compiled a list of cancers that can be reduced by exercise.

    Moreover, for some of them, the risk is lower the more intense the activity.

    Scientists have long known that physical activity is associated with a low risk of developing certain cancers.

    However, it was unclear if there was a causal relationship and how much time

  • Health Benefits of Eggs - What Science Says

    Health Benefits of Eggs - What Science Says


    In the category "most useful food" a chicken egg is one of the most nutritious, absolutely safe, and healthy products in the world.

    For many years, doctors have recommended limiting the consumption of chicken eggs. Some people are so afraid of cholesterol that they exclude eggs from their diet altogether, or they eat only protein and just throw away egg yolk.


    Meanwhile, scientists have conducted a lot of research that has proven that egg yolk is

  • Sugar Harms Human Health and Causes Cancer

    Sugar Harms Human Health and Causes Cancer






    Until 100 years ago, refined sugar was not an essential part of the daily diet. Only very rich people could afford it.

    Today the picture has changed dramatically and for most people a day without a sweet dessert looks bleak and dull.


    However, over the past 100 years, the number of cases of obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer has increased dramatically.


    Scientists first started talking about

  • Even a Short Physical Activity Can Boost Your Brain Power

    Even a Short Physical Activity Can Boost Your Brain Power



    We know that physical activity improves health, protects against obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular problems. But the beneficial effects of exercise extend not only to our body but also to our mind.

    It has long been known that exercise breaks during mental work improve performance.

    You might think that exercise, like any change in activity, simply allows the brain to get distracted and rest, but in fact, exercise itself directly affects the brain.

  • The Harm of Low-fat Foods or What Diseases Are Caused by the Fear of Fatty Foods








    Fear of fatty foods as a socially acceptable eating disorder

    Fatphobia (Lipophobia) – fear of fatty foods and their deliberate avoidance. This phenomenon is not given much importance.

    I would even say that in modern society, it is simply customary to be careful when it comes to fatty foods and strive for low-fat products. Animal fats are a particular subject of fear.


    For example, we are afraid to fry

  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil: the Main Science-based Health Benefits

    Extra Virgin Olive Oil: the Main Science-based Health Benefits





    Today, there is a lot of talk about the benefits of olive oil for health and even for life extension. It is worth noting that people often confuse the extension of life with the extension of old age. Life extension is possible mainly due to the extension of youth.

    After all, aging is an annual increase in the probability of dying from age-related disease. And if the probability of dying decreases, then aging slows down. Youth is prolonged.

  • Is Cholesterol in Food Really Dangerous? What Science Says

    Is Cholesterol in Food Really Dangerous? What Science Says





    Cholesterol is a naturally occurring fatty alcohol found exclusively in animal products. Cholesterol is necessary for the body. The cholesterol content in the diet of healthy people is not only safe but also necessary.

    Cholesterol is found exclusively in food of animal origin. About 80% of the cholesterol in the human body is produced by the liver. And only 20% comes from food — from outside.

    The daily requirement for cholesterol is only 0.5

  • How Do You Know if You Are Lactose Intolerant?

    How Do You Know if You Are Lactose Intolerant?




    When you eat dairy products, the body receives milk sugar - lactose. To break it down, a special enzyme is produced — lactase. It breaks down sugar into two parts — glucose and galactose, which enter the blood.

    The gene responsible for the production of this enzyme is found in almost all peoples who, due to their history, were engaged in cattle breeding and consumed dairy products.

    For example, more than 90% of Dutch, Swedish, and Australian people

  • How to Live Longer? If You Want to Live 100 Years — Walk a Lot

    How to Live Longer? If You Want to Live 100 Years — Walk a Lot






    World record holders for life expectancy (super-long-livers) walked a lot.

    Technological progress makes us move less. However, 10-12 thousand steps daily treat obesity and improve the quality of sleep, reduce anxiety, depression, anger, fatigue and improve mood, prevent diabetes and cardiovascular diseases, and are useful for the health of women during menopause.

    Parents, remember that the habit of walking a lot is formed in early childhood.

    New Study: is a Low-carb, High-fat (Keto) Diet Good for Older People?




    In recent years, there have been many studies that have convincingly proven the benefits, effectiveness, and safety of the high – fat, low-carb diet- keto, and we have written about it many times.

    Often the participants in these studies are young or middle-aged. But in today's article, we will tell you about a new serious, high-quality randomized study on the effects of the keto diet specifically on older people.

  • Research: Ketones Help With Heart Failure

    Research: Ketones Help With Heart Failure




    Ketones are already known to be good for the brain. For example, they help people with Alzheimer's disease.

    There is reason to believe that ketones are also useful directly for the heart - in case of heart failure.





    Ketones for heart failure

    A study of patients with chronic heart failure was published in the journal Circulation of the American Heart Association (AAC).

    Japanese Matcha Tea: Health Benefits and Harms. Scientific Research





    Japanese matcha green tea has become incredibly popular recently. Today, it can be found in the menu of restaurants and cafes in the form of tea, lattes, and even as part of desserts, such as ice cream.

    Green tea and matcha tea we are used to have the same parent: the Camellia sinensis plant. The difference between them is in the way of cultivation, which determines the unique composition of nutrients.

  • Was There a Problem With Gluten?

    Was There a Problem With Gluten?




    An autoimmune disease that results in digestive disorders caused by gluten is called celiac disease (coeliac disease). It is rare. Much more common is the so-called "leaky gut syndrome" or simply gluten sensitivity.

    What they have in common is that the gut reacts negatively to the protein gluten, which causes either digestive problems or immune response and inflammation.

    But why are there so many problems with gluten contained in cereals?

  • What Happens to the Body if You Sleep Less Than 5 Hours a Day

    What Happens to the Body if You Sleep Less Than 5 Hours a Day






    The first thing we sacrifice in the modern rhythm of megacities, when we realize that 24 hours a day to achieve goals is catastrophically not enough – sleep.

    There is a well-established opinion that a person needs to sleep at least 8 hours a day. What if you just don't want to sleep? Let's find out whether the lack of sleep is so terrible and how many hours of full rest will be enough to restore the body.
