Americans Load Up on Empty Calories


HEALTH NEWS BYTE
Tuesday, January 30, 2007



According to a new study, the calories you suck down through a straw may play a bigger role in weight gain than the calories you bite off the end of a fork. Published as part of the national report "What America Drinks," the study's findings indicate that "liquid calories" make up 22% of the average U.S. adult's diet. A signification portion of those calories come in the form of refined sugar from sweetened fruit juices and sodas, which have been shown to contribute to the risk of obesity and type 2 diabetes. For those looking to curb their calorie intake in the new year, researchers recommended a simple fix: a cold, refreshing glass of water.

What This Means for You
For those who can't do without a little sweetness in their cup, many beverage makers are capitalizing on health concerns by offering sugar-free, zero-calorie or all-natural alternatives to sugary drinks. For those with simpler palates, there's also sparkling mineral water.

THEREFORE, SLIM FAST IS ACTUALLY SLIM SLOW!!

My grandfather died from colon cancer about 2 years ago. My grandmother is still so heart broken. I think if she could just die of a broken heart, she would.

I read about a recent study whereas Curry and Onions may help to reduce the size of pollps in the colon therefore reducing the risk of colon cancer. Because my grandfather died from this cancer, it now puts me at risk..

For people concerned about colon health, a spicier diet just may be in order. According to research conducted at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, antioxidants found in curry spices and onions can help shrink colon polyps and prevent them from becoming cancerous tumors. Hopkins researchers studied a group of patients, identified as being at high-risk of colon cancer, over the course of a six-month period. At the study's end, those patients who had consumed higher amounts of the compounds curcumin and quercetin – found in abundance in curry and onions – experienced an average reduction of 60% in the number of colon polyps. Researchers called for larger-scale studies of curcumin and quercetin.
