Increasing Risk of Food Poisoning

A couple of friends of mine went out for dinner recently to a local, well-known restaurant (nameless because it had to have been an isolated incident and accidental), for dinner. One chose to have tomato juice with the meal and on taking his first taste exclaimed “It’s rancid!” and did not drink any more, spitting out the little he had supped. Within 15 minutes he was violently ill and vomiting, and 24 hours later remained sick in bed as I write this article.

How Healthy Is Your Lifestyle

Compelling evidence shows that certain lifestyle behaviours can improve health, prevent premature death and may even prolong life. The problem is that people often drift along, continuing their unhealthy ways - maybe vowing to stop smoking or drink less "some day soon" - until a disease or health problem strikes and it may be too late to reverse the damage. Assessing your lifestyle and how it affects health before illness occurs is a wise precaution. (However, changing one's lifestyle even after illness can sometimes improve health - for instance giving up cigarettes and exercising more after a heart attack.) Why assess lifestyle risks?

Help for Diabetes, Gout and More

Overview of Gout Gout is a systemic disease caused by the buildup of uric acid in the joints, causing inflammation, swelling, and pain. This condition can develop for two reasons. The liver may produce more uric acid than the body can excrete in the urine, or a diet of rich foods (e.g., red meat, cream sauces, red wine) puts more uric acid into the bloodstream than the kidneys can filter. In both cases, a condition called hyperuricemia results. Over time, the uric acid crystallizes and settles in the joint spaces, most commonly in the first metatarsal phalangeal joint of the big toe or in the ankle joint.

Irradiation as a Preservative: Is It Safe

After many long years of research into the safety and feasibility of food irradiation, it is a preservation method whose "time may have come." The method is comparable to traditional food preservation methods such as canning, freezing and fumigation, albeit with some advantages. Food irradiation can be made safe and effective by carefully controlling the radiation dose. Both Canada and the U.S. have established strict regulations for all aspects of food irradiation - from the design of irradiation facilities to the type and source of radiation and the dosage used - to ensure that foods preserved by irradiation remain wholesome and safe to eat. Irradiated foods offered for sale must be labeled according to the Canadian Food and Drug Act, and are allowed only a specified radiation dose.

Are Herbal Remedies Safe

“Natural” does not necessarily mean “Pure”. “Herbal based” does not necessarily mean it is 100 percent herbal in makeup. “Organic” does not necessarily mean it is truly, purely, organic. And something that is certified “98% Natural and Organic” is actually”2% corrupted material”. Let me ask this: If you take a 10 ounce glass of filtered water, guaranteed pure, pristine, non-harmful, and add 1/8th of an ounce of rat poison, how safe is that water to drink? Likewise, if you are using a product that is “98 percent pure”, just how pure is that 100 percent product – what is the other 2 percent of it contributing to the overall product?

What is Good Health, Part 1

There is no universally agreed definition of health. Its meaning has changed through the ages and in different cultures. The term derives from the Anglo-Saxon word "haelth," meaning safe, sound or whole. In medieval times "haelthing" meant "sharing a few drinks with one's friends," having previously meant "hello" and "holiness." In recent decades, health has been taken to mean "the absence of disease." The term "disease" generally refers to a diagnosable physical abnormality while "illness" means the personal experience of sickness, or the perceived suffering due to a disease.
