Do you know anyone who has bought in to the fear-mongering propaganda against salt? Now yet another big study indicates that the fear of salt is highly exaggerated.
When they examined the salt habits of over 100,000 people, it turned out that people who salted more than the recommended amount had the lowest risk of cardiovascular disease. Those who salted a lot less – according to official guidelines – had a higher (!) risk of disease.
The study should be taken with a grain of salt (pun intended) as this is, as usual, only statistics. But like previous studies, it suggests it’s fine to put salt on your food at home without feeling guilty.
However, it may for many reasons, be wise to avoid ready-made foods and junk food (and bread) that have lots of added salt. This salt is to hide the boring taste of cheap, poor ingredients. Continue Reading →
Why won’t the ice cream melt anymore?
An American woman got a surprise when her kid had left an ice cream outside in the sun – and it didn’t melt. A TV channel did their own tests and confirmed the finding. While real ice cream quickly melted, the cheap ice cream from Walmart didn’t melt.
The secret behind this is the ingredients: less real cream and more sugar and more stabilizing agents such as guar gum and cellulose gum.
According to the manufacturer, the non-melting ice cream is “healthy” and meets all requirements from FDA.
Besides, who doesn’t love the taste of warm gum in the summer?
More and more people (and doctors!) realize that the fear of fat was a mistake:
Swedes are eating more and more eggs over the summer. According to a press release from the Swedish Egg Board, the statistics show a 20-percent increase in a few years.
The average Swede is said to eat 38 eggs over the ten weeks after midsummer solstice. Which leads to the obvious question:
How many eggs will you have this summer?
I’ve received many emails about this: A Finnish couple is rowing across the Pacific Ocean in protest against sugar and other bad carbohydrates. Their “Fat Chance Row” goes from California to Hawaii, which they’re hoping to reach in August.
You won’t find any pasta-loading on this row - they are eating real food, such as “dried meat, nuts, coconut butter and dried fruit, things that will keep at high temperatures”.
The expedition’s webpage: Fatchancerow.org
The words “Fat Chance” are from the title of professor Robert Lustig’s book about the dangers of sugar. The expedition is done in collaboration with his recently-launched organization Institute for Responsible Nutrition.
This is where the couple is now:
I received a fascinating story from Anthony in Australia about what happened when he ended up in the emergency room, where it was discovered that he had high blood pressure. This led him to search for better health on his own, not following the usual diet recommendations he was given. Here’s his story: Continue Reading →
Isn’t it pretty, the cover of the latest issue of TIME?
The paradigm shift continues and the outdated fear of fat is on its way out faster and faster.
You’d wish that some old-school fat phobics subscribed to the magazine. Unfortunately, I think this is hoping for too much, so I just emailed the cover to some of them.
Some people will still spread low-fat margarine on their bread as long as they live, as an old habit. But most people will soon realize that not only does it taste bad, but it’s also completely unnecessary.
Consider passing this on to your friends! Continue Reading →
Have you ever carb-loaded? The answer is likely yes, whether it was planned or not.
Check out this new trailer for Carb-Loaded, a new documentary in the making, about the risks accompanying a diet with too many carbohydrates.
The trailer includes several of my idols, like Gary Taubes and Yoni Freedhoff. In addition I’m in it, which feels a bit odd!
The movie will be finished soon. You can watch more clips from the movie’s interviews on their website and sign up for updates about when you can watch the entire movie:
What happens if you boil Coke?
Obviously, the sugar will be left on the bottom of the pot. But do you have any idea of how disgusting it looks? This charming Russian shows you. In just a few days his video has had more than 4 million views on YouTube.
Who wants a Coke after watching this video? Continue Reading →
