Fat or Sugar?

Column #6

Sugar, “How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.” America’s love affair with sugar is unprecedented. In 1822 per capita consumption of sugars was five pounds per year. Today it’s 150 pounds because of the ubiquitousness of sugar, corn syrup, other syrups, and honey. This is deplorable yet some researchers claim sugar has benefits!

Fungus Among Us

Column #5

Few people read the Journal of Clinical Microbiology. That’s unfortunate because it publishes important research related to human and animal infections and their consequences for health and well-being.

Solution to Obesity: Let’s Eat

Column #4

Obesity is a chronic disease. Its underlying cause is not laziness, overeating, or the consumption of fat. Although nutritional scientists have recognized this for a long time, it wasn’t until 2013 that the American Medical Association finally designated obesity as a chronic disease. Now we know obese people are sick!

Are We What We Eat?

Column #3

Anthelme Brillat-Savarin wrote, in Physiologie du Gout, ou Meditations de Gastronomie Transcendante, 1826: “Tell me what you eat and I will tell you what you are.” He was saying “you are what you eat.”

Mammals require many elements and compounds to “manufacture” tissues, nutrients, and chemical messengers. But some required nutrients cannot be fabricated by the body. These “essential nutrients” (minerals, many amino acids, most vitamins, and a few fatty acids) must be eaten.

A Nutritional Scientist’s Take

Column #2

The public discussion of a proper diet is mostly confusion and delusion. It consists of USDA recommendations, medical profession suggestions, stories regarding poorly crafted reports in the media, and fads. Yet under the public radar there is a highly complex science. So let’s examine a nutritional scientist’s take on how diet impacts health.

Nutrition: The Green Leaf

Column #1

This is the age of chronic disease.  Children are overweight, maturing earlier, have asthma, allergies, mental disorders, and more while sometimes contracting what were once only adult diseases.  Many in their late thirties, for sure their forties, are under a doctor’s care.  Most over 60 take drugs, endure operations, and an alarming number die prematurely.  The answer in a Center for Disease Control study regarding prescription drug use “in the prior month” by age was: 0-11: 22.4%; 12-19: 29.9%; 20-59: 48.3%; 60+: 88.4%.
