Growing up I always heard that granola is healthier for you then cereal. In most cases, that is true. Although, today I learned that plain Cheerios is healthier for you than granola cereal. I thought that all cereal was unhealthy. Cheerios have less calories, saturated fat, and carbs. Cheerios also has more fiber and iron. Although, if you add sugar, get the honey cheerios, or the chocolate cheerios then they are not healthier than granola. Since, I’m fairly new to learning nutrition, I’m not sure if vegetable oil is healthier than butter. But I was surprised that vegetable oil has more calories than butter and margarine. I thought vegetable oil had little to no calories and was extremely healthy. I have heard that eggs are one of the healthies
Hydrogenated oils are still being used in vast quantities to give better consistency to foods, and to improve shelf-lives like biscuits,cakes,fried foods and other many other snacks. Trans fats have been linked to an increased risk of Heart disease ,Diabetes ,Cancer to name a few. Read the food label ingredients. Just because it says 0 grams of fat, it doesn’t mean there are no hydrogenated oils. The FDA allows anything under .5 grams to be reported as a zero. Read carefully.
I searched for any studies that may indicate that red palm fruit oil could increase the human body metabolism and thus makes one burn fat and lose weight. However, a blog post from Berkeley said that the red palm fruit oil has the same fat content as the refined palm oil. Thus I really doubt the claimed heal effect of red palm fruit oil: if the red palm fruit oil does not contain any special content form the regular refined palm oil, then what makes it so “magical” as Dr. Oz had claimed. But what if regular palm oil can also increase the human body metabolism rate and thus promote weight loss? Thus I also searched for papers on the relationship between palm oil and human heath effect. I found a paper done by Sutapa Mukherjee and Analava Mitra at Indian Institute of Technology. The paper exanimated the heal effects of palm oil. Although palm oil is high in saturated fat, it will not cause a significant cholesterol rise if it is consumed in a reasonable amount. But it seems that this paper I found is about how palm oil is not harmful for human body instead of talking about the benefits of palm

Many people want to believe old age will kill them, but more than likely, the killer will come from what they put into their bodies. Every day, people are faced with affecting their own health. To do so, one must be conscious of what their temple receives; this means people must watch what they eat. People must look at the ingredients contained in everyday foods, what those ingredients cause to happen in the body, and the effects the ingredients have on the body, like the ingredient high fructose corn syrup. The amounts of overconsumed and unhealthy contents of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) need to be replaced by natural sugars.
In tenth grade, my biology teacher radically changed the way I ate with six simple words: high fructose corn syrup is bad. At first I brushed it off as one of the many stories that adults make up to scare children into eating their vegetables, but when my teacher went into the science behind his statement, I understood the powerful truth behind his words. High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is a liquid sweetener made from corn and composed of the simple sugars fructose and glucose (White 1716S; vol. 88). Today, sugar makes up much of the average American’s diet, especially that of teenagers. Of all the sweeteners consumed, HFCS stands as one of the most common ("Why You Should Never Eat”).

The best source of Omega 3s are fatty fish, hence, most vegans and vegetarians will have a DHA deficiency.
Marijuana is a controversial topic in America leaving everyone wondering, should it be or should it not be legal? Myself, having the similar question, looked at two different viewpoints regarding the issue. Only instead of primarily focusing on strictly marijuana legalization, I chose to specifically search for legalization of cannabidiol, oil that derives from cannabis.
With obesity rising to an alarming level, Chef and restauranteur Chad Clift works hard to educate his staff and customers about the dangers and benefits of fat. It is widely accepted in the scientific and medical communities that a low fat diet is one of the keys to a healthy and long life.

The reason for this book is to inform and explain why eating disorders happen, what the symptoms are, and the treatment for the eating disorders. The author highlights the significance of learning reasonable eating, exercise patterns, and the task of self-help in mending.

Her mother claimed that it was just baby fat and that it will go away. But she knew that it won’t just go away so she had to pretend to not be hungry and not eat because she wanted to be skinny. The information in this book is extremely informational about my topic.
