Food: Facts or Fiction?

When it comes to eating, we have all heard sayings about what you should or shouldn't eat. Turns out some of those 'wives tales' are actually based in fact. Here's a few that may sound familiar that were recently featured in Reader's Digest:

An Apple A Day Keeps The Doctor Away
Researchers from the University of Oxford estimate that if every adult over 50 ate an apple a day, it could prevent or delay approximately 8,500 vascular deaths from heart attacks and strokes every year in the U.K. Scientists at Cornell also found that eating apples—thanks to their healthy substances like flavonoids and antioxidants—could inhibit the development of breast cancer.



Eating Late At Night Will Make You Gain Weight
Late-night eaters tend to weigh more and have a higher BMI than those who eat earlier in the day, but not because food somehow triples in calories after p.m. One issue is that is has more todo with the food choices late night snackers make. at night. For example, late-night eaters tend to binge-eat more frequently and consume more calories. Some researchers also theorize that eating at night can disrupt your circadian rhythms and your body’s ability to regulate blood levels, and yet still others have found that daytime eating better regulates the hunger hormones ghrelin and leptin, making you more likely to feel full at the end of the day and less likely to overindulge.



Going Outside Without A Coat Will Make You Sick
You need to be exposed to a germ to get sick, however, you may be more susceptible to that germ when you’re shivering. One study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, showed that immune cells in your nose and upper airway may not function as well in cooler temperatures. Plus, viruses can become more virulent in the cold, because cold weather makes the outer membrane of the flu virus solidify, so the germ becomes more durable and easier to transmit. Once it enters your respiratory tract, the gel coating liquefies and the virus is ready to wreak havoc on your body.



Sitting Too Close To The TV Is Bad For Your Eyes
Actually, this is partially a myth: Sitting close to the TV seems to be relatively safe, research suggests, with the only potential risks being eye strain and fatigue. But staring at your smartphone—might cause some serious damage. Researchers from the University of Toledo found that the blue light from a smartphone or computer could harm the retina, as well as speed up blindness in patients with macular degeneration. Other scientists worry about , in particular: One study found that who spent seven or more hours week using computers or playing mobile video games tripled their risk of developing nearsightedness (myopia), while another discovered that who held their phones eight to inches from their eyes for prolonged periods of time were a greater risk for temporary convergent strabismus, aka going cross-eyed.



Heartburn During Pregnancy Means Your Baby Will Be Born With A Full Head of Hair
A John Hopkins University study found that women who suffered from moderate to severe heartburn did indeed give birth to babies with luxurious locks. On the flip side, the babies whose mothers didn’t experience heartburn had little or no hair. The connection isn’t completely clear; the researchers theorize that extra- levels of estrogen and other pregnancy hormones may both encourage fetal hair growth and relax the sphincter the top of the esophagus, allowing acidic digestive fluids to back up and trigger heartburn symptoms.


Eating Cheese Before Bedtime Causes Strange Dreams
That was the surprising finding of a study from the British Cheese Board, which further revealed that different cheeses gave subjects different types of dreams. For example, 85 percent of the women who ate Stilton had crazy, vivid dreams, while 60 percent of participants who snacked on Red Leicester dreamed about their childhoods. This may have something to do with the tryptophan in milk, which encourages sleep and reduces stress levels. Men’s Health theorizes that people with some degree of lactose intolerance may suffer from sleep disruption and, as a result, bad dreams.



Carrots Are Good For Your Eyes
While carrots won’t improve your vision, research suggests that they can help maintain it. The reason is beta carotene, a carotenoid (or pigment) that the body converts to vitamin A. Your body uses vitamin A to build proteins for eye cells; if you have too little of it, you might even suffer from night blindness. Furthermore, a study published in JAMA Ophthalmology found that people who ate levels of carotenoids had a 40 percent lower risk of developing advanced macular degeneration, the most common cause of -related blindness. And for the record, it’s not just carrots: Sweet potatoes and orange peppers, as well as dark, leafy greens like spinach and kale are also rich in carotenoids.



What are some of the food myths that you found are actually true?

But, but, but . . . you didn't mention the benefits of bananas or cucumbers on women's sexual health.

When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

Sir Mix-A-Lot - "Baby Got Back"

[Sir Mix-a-Lot:]
I like big butts and I can not lie
You other brothers can't deny
That when a girl walks in with an itty bitty waist
And a round thing in your face
You get sprung, wanna pull up tough
'Cause you notice that butt was stuffed
Deep in the jeans she's wearing
I'm hooked and I can't stop staring
Oh baby, I wanna get with you
And take your picture
My homeboys tried to warn me
But that butt you got makes me so horny
Ooh, Rump-o'-smooth-skin
You say you wanna get in my Benz?
Well, use me, use me
'Cause you ain't that average groupie
I've seen them dancin'
To hell with romancin'
She's sweat, wet,
Got it goin' like a turbo 'Vette
I'm tired of magazines
Sayin' flat butts are the thing
Take the average black man and ask him that
She gotta pack much back
So, fellas! (Yeah!) Fellas! (Yeah!)
Has your girlfriend got the butt? (Hell yeah!)
Tell 'em to shake it! (Shake it!) Shake it! (Shake it!)
Shake that healthy butt!
Baby got back!

Hmmm I guess these types of posts can come across as 'public service messages' but my take is that if I read something interesting, maybe someone else will find it interesting or learn something new.
Thanks for dropping by and sharing your perspective and song choice.
