Hand Dishwashing Tied to Fewer Allergies for Kids\

Do you use dishwashers at your home?  I use it when I have parties.


Children whose families washed dishes by hand were associated with a lower risk of developing allergies compared with those who used a machine dishwasher, according to an observational study of Swedish families.

In a multivariate analysis, Bill Hesselmar, MD, PhD, pediatric allergology, Queen Silvia Children’s Hospital in Gothenburg, Sweden, and colleagues reported that children ages 7 to 8 were less likely to develop allergic disease with hand dishwashing (OR 0.57, 95% CI: 0.37-0.85). Allergic diseases included eczema, asthma, and allergic rhinoconjunctivitis (ARC).

Xenoestrogens in make-up and consumer products put women at risk of breast cancer, miscarriage, diabetes and more
The healthy food movement has increasingly gained momentum over the last few years, attracting followers from all over the world who spend a lot of time focusing on which foods to buy and which ones to avoid. Unfortunately, avoiding pesticides and other harmful chemicals is a full-time job, and it’s not just spent examining the food we eat.
We’re frequently exposed to a multitude of chemicals through a variety of other sources including personal care products, plastics and industrial products such as furnishings, motor vehicles and electronics.
A particularly prevalent group of chemicals that pose a real threat to society right now are endocrine disruptors, some of which are referred to as estrogen mimickers or xenoestrogens. Endocrine disruptors alter the normal functioning of hormones, interfering with signaling processes that tell our tissues what to do.
“When chemicals from the outside get into our bodies, they have the ability to mimic our natural hormones; blocking or binding hormone receptors,” reports WomeninBalance.org. ” This is particularly detrimental to hormone sensitive organs like the uterus and the breast, the immune and neurological systems, as well as human development.”

Nothing safe in this world. We need to watch and be careful. That is my answer.

Ginger Ginger Ginger

Researchers from the University of Minnesota’s Hormel Institute found that gingerols may inhibit the growth of colorectal cancer cells after providing the herb to mice specifically bred to lack an immune system. Scientists fed the mice half a milligram of gingerol three times a week before injecting them with human colorectal cancer cells.

After 15 days, 13 tumors were found in the control group (meaning they were not given gingerol) compared to just four tumors identified in the group that received gingerol. By day 38, one mouse in the gingerol-receiving group still had no measurable tumors; however, all of the control group mice were eventually euthanized because their tumors had grown to one cubic centimeter (0.06 cubic inch).

It’s clear that ginger has some amazing healing capabilities. Similar to turmeric, it works great medicinally, but is also a staple in many fine-tasting cuisines.

Ginger is incredibly versatile, meaning it can be used in many types of food. One of the most popular uses for ginger is for desserts. Ginger cookies, gingerbread, ginger waffles and even cocktails are just a few sweets you can make using this herb.

Actually, we use a lot of ginger for cooking. We make Ginger dressing for salad. We make Honey Ginger tea. I use Ginger for Healthy Body Soup. I also use Ginger for some sashimi sauce.

Mustard, Cayenne Pepper and Green Tea Boost Your Metabolism for Weight Loss
Metabolism refers to the physical and chemical processes that synthesis energy. These chemical reactions take place within the cells with help from enzymes and hormones. This process converts food and oxygen to the energy needed to run the body. Increasing the metabolism increases energy and enables weight loss. Everyone’s metabolism is different and this is largely determined by genetics. Your metabolism is also influenced by your age, and it slows down by 5% each decade after age 40. Even so, there are lifestyle and dietary choices that increase metabolism for everyone.

All foods are fat burning in reality, because as soon as you begin the process of digestion, your metabolism increases, especially during the first hour after eating. However, some foods require more energy to digest. Protein requires as much as 25% more energy, so adding high protein snacks and foods to your diet can help boost your metabolic rate. Each 100 calories of protein takes 30 calories to digest. Eggs have been shown to particularly help with fat burning.
A study in the Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, found that red pepper (cayenne) added to high carbohydrate meals increased both resting and active metabolic rates for 30 minutes after eating. Some suggest that half a teaspoon of cinnamon boosts metabolism as well. Other spices that increase metabolism include ginger, black pepper, and mustard seed. A spoonful of mustard boosts metabolism by 25% for a few hours. Black pepper interferes with adipogenesis, the body’s ability to make new fat cells.

A similar function has been claimed for green tea. The active ingredient is an anti-oxidant called EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate), which acts in the same manner as cayenne pepper. Three or four cups of green tea are needed to get the recommended amount of EGCG, 270-300 mg a day. Adding caffeine to EGCG has also shown to improve metabolism and encourage weight loss. The recommended doses are 270 mg of EGCG and 150 mg of caffeine.

Energy drinks cause ADHD symptoms in children

A recent Yale School of Public Health study focused on high-sugar-content beverages, both caffeinated and not caffeinated. It pretty much concluded that middle school kids who consumed high-sugar beverages often were at greater risk or more prone to become addled with attention disorders and hyperactivity.

The Yale study surveyed 1,649 middle-school students, average age 12.4 years, randomly selected from a single urban school district in Connecticut. Harvard Epidemiology Professor Jeannette Ickovics, director of CARE (Community Alliance for Research and Engagement) led this study. The research determined that boys drank more highly sugar-sweetened beverages and especially energy drinks than girls.

Some of the favored beverages among the study participants contained as much as 40 grams of sugar. The average intake was two sodas or energy drinks daily. So up to 80 grams of added sugar per day would not be unusual.

This study did not differentiate between sucrose or HFCS (high-fructose corn syrup). They lumped all added sugars together. But it has been discovered that HFCS has even worse health ramifications than sucrose. Nevertheless, the association to ADD and ADHD was in proportion to the amounts of added sugar of any type in beverages.

“As the total number of sugar-sweetened beverages increased, so too did risk for hyperactivity and inattention symptoms among our middle-school students. Importantly, it appears that energy drinks are driving this association,” said Ickovics.

She added, “Our results support the American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation that parents should limit consumption of sweetened beverages and that children should not consume any energy drinks.”
