My search for the best dog food

My dog became older-looking and much less glossy coat as she approached 10 years old. I wondered if her absorption of nutrients wasn't so good, and read the analysis of her dog food (working dog formula - suitable for sheep dogs and hunting dogs). The food is based on cereals, with some added meat extracts and fats. The added minerals are very impressive and put human food to shame, but only

investing in life

I am sometimes offered the occasional hour of paid work, mowing someone's lawn, or similar, but I have no interest in extra money. I now receive the state pension, but for many years lived on a budget that was barely 40% of this, while working on my house. I have never seen extra money make anyone happy, except young parents faced with the impossibility of buying or building their own home.

wheatgerm for healthyfood nutrition

For anyone who is wheat intolerant (like me), but not allergic (coeliac disease), it is helpful to know that the vitamins, minerals and healthy fat content of the wheat seed is concentrated in the wheatgerm. The wheatgerm is only 2.5% (1 part in 40) of the whole seed, but has all the magnesium and zinc, and more concentrated protein than virtually all sources of meat and fish. The data

eating disorder psychology triggered by fad diet

The ever-growing (and conflicting) 'expert' advice about what to eat, and what not to eat, is now creating problems for women in their 30s, 40s and beyond. In 18 years specialising in “body dissatisfaction” psychology, clinical psychologist Louise Adams has never seen as many women of all ages with food issues; food anxiety is at epidemic proportions, thanks to the ubiquitous influence of

beware #HealthyFood misinformation

 It is really important to find source materials rather than 'blogging for profit' articles when planning a healthy diet ... Quote: "vegetarian foods are not a great source of protein." source: http://www.thehealthsite.com/diseases-conditions/low-protein-diet-plan-for-people-suffering-from-gout-f0416/ I'm not a vegetarian, but the 2 most concentrated forms of protein in my kitchen  are both

walnuts and bananas beat advertised 'health' food

Some interesting health-related news today. Business as usual, really, in so far as the best foods don't advertise. In a (wal)nutshell, the message is - the best use for your multi-mineral and vitamin tablets is probably added to a compost heap, and walnuts, in moderation, are very healthy: Bananas Take One A Day VitaCraves Adult Gummy Multivitamins, for example.

(Silanus is located on the sloping fringes of the Gennargentu Mountains in central Sardinia). I recall a pal describing Barley Cup as being as

UK over 40s health campaign

(health, wellbeing, obesity, alcohol, smoking, diet) Today's news on the BBC highlights a new campaign to improve the health of Britain's men and women as they age. People in the UK are living longer, but not being fit and healthy any longer. The necessary changes to habits are simple and cost nothing - in fact they generally involve spending less on consumables that are damaging to health:

Allotment Gardening - organic guide

Full title: Allotment Gardening - An organic guide for beginners, by Susan Berger. After 40+ years I hope I'm not a beginner, but this fine book certainly brings me up to date, and has useful sections on rotations, improving the soil and producing your own compost (either in a bin, or by using green manures to keep the minerals from washing away and feeding the worms and bacteria with fresh

Healthy Food Vitamins and diet for busy people

The food and nutrition research detailed in Superfoods - antioxidants shows that fruit with higher levels of antioxidants (e.g. blackberries) add the same level of antioxidants to the blood of the consumer as fruit with lower levels (e.g. raspberries). This being the case, presumably taking ten times the amount of antioxidants (e.g. the CRONIES, who have a huge bowl full of fresh berries and

longevity in Sicily

There was a very good documentary on ITV about the high number of centenarians, in good health, in a small town in Sicily. Their Mediterranean diet has had a good press for some time, but this video also focussed on their activity levels. Most families seemed to have the ground to grow lots of their own food, including small livestock. One thing they didn't mention, which was hidden in plain

optimum nutrition and poverty - healthy food bargains & education beat advertising

Recent 'health' news from the poor districts in South Wales is appalling: Following on from our article on the real 'superfoods' that aren't widely promoted by the food 'industry', here is very sad news that victims of such corporations believe that fresh fruit and vegetables are more expensive than junk food, fast food and convenience foods.

healthy diet versus corporate fast food advertising

Yesterday, there was a report published, based on a single study from the University of East Anglia, relating high protein diet to improved cardiovascular health. The World Health Authority was quoted in the report, which raises the interesting question: who funds them, and what are their interests in business and the stock markets? In the most recent report, WHO funding was 80% from voluntary

healthy food during poverty: solutions

Following on from our article on the 'superfoods' that aren't widely promoted by the food 'industry', here is very sad news ... Scurvy and rickets are both reappearing in children; deficiency diseases that were thought to be permanently eradicated. Fast food and children don't belong together.

Social media beats corporations advertising at supporting diet health

Social media beats corporate advertising at supporting a healthy diet Healthy diet requires ongoing affirmations and support to combat the onslaught of advertising from food corporations. Cheap ingredients in fancy presentation and packaging make more profit. Marty says - diet fads don't work. Many of them have people doing ridiculous things.

Sugar tax to fund healthy diet promotion v obesity

In this week's news the BMA (British Medical Council), representing Britain's GPs, called for a 20% tax on sugary drinks to limit the damage caused, especially to children, by heavily advertised low-nutrition drinks.  They made a case for using that income to subsidise fresh fruit and vegetables. However, fresh (and rapidly frozen) fruit and veg aren't expensive compared to even 'bargain'

healthy foods don't advertise (wellbeing, nutrition v corporations)

Abstract: Evidence based dietary guidelines contrasted with corporate funded science and corporate funded advertising. It is a scientifically tested fact that - other factors such as exercise, genetics, habits being equal - people eating a diet rich in antioxidants suffer less from heart disease, diabetes, some cancers and the degenerative diseases associated with ageing.
