Refined sugar consumption is at an all-time high. It is almost impossible to avoid with sugar being added to most foods from soda to tomato sauce and even crackers. What are the health costs of consuming a highly refined sugar diet? How can you take steps to decrease refined sugar intake? Check out my infographic today for answers to these questions. Enjoy!
I wrote several posts previously on dairy consumption and health. Today I delve further into the topic with an infographic discussing the scientific evidence behind full-fat dairy vs. low-fat dairy consumption. In part 1, I will introduce the full-fat vs. low-fat argument. I will also discuss the health benefits of consuming high-fat dairy and type 2 diabetes. Enjoy!
Does green tea (Camellia sinensis, Theaceae) prevent cancer? There may be some evidence. Today I am sharing an infographic I made about green tea and its anti-inflammatory properties. This infographic is not comprehensive, so if you are interested in the topic I encourage you to check out this website which discusses more of the evidence. Some clinical studies have not demonstrated green tea's efficacy at inhibiting cancer. This could be due to the different varieties of tea (black, green, white, etc.), regional differences in growth (higher level of secondary metabolites in soil-rich areas), or the population studied (genetic and environmental differences). Hope you enjoy my infographic and I encourage you to investigate the research further. For now, I'm going to continue enjoying my green tea and lemon each morning. Enjoy!
