Certain carbo loaded foods like white bread and doughnuts aren't healthy, but the good carbs, like whole grains, beans, fruits and vegetables, are important sources of fuel for the body.

Adhering to these food myths

Microwave ovens are a source of many common myths, one of which is that you lose nutrients when you zap food. In fact, one of the best ways to cook vegetables to preserve their nutrients is to microwave them because they cook more quickly. By boiling vegetables, you are just pouring vitamins down the drain.

Rumor has it that spicy foods cause ulcers, but not so, no matter how much you eat. You won't get ulcers from stress either. The bacterium Helicobacter pylori is the culprit.

It seems that our bodies have a very well designed system for removing toxins involving the liver, spleen and kidneys.

Despite recommendations from actress Gwyneth Paltrow, doctors don't consider cleansing diets healthy.

Fresh vegetables can sit in the store for several days or in your refrigerator for a week, losing nutrients every day. Before that they may have been transported across the country or even farther.

is the statement that frozen vegetables are less nutritious than fresh. This would be true if the fresh food had just been picked and served, but frozen foods are nearly Nike Long Sleeve Crop as nutritious because they are picked at their peak and quickly frozen.

Another microwave fiction is that the process exposes the user to radiation. Once the oven is off, there are no waves in the oven or the food. Users might be more concerned if the door is damaged or doesn't seal properly. In most cases, leaks are too small to cause a health risk.

I was surprised to read that aluminum foil and aluminum cookware are not linked to Alzheimer's disease. Apparently the myth originated in the 1960s and '70s when scientists discovered that aluminum was elevated in the brains of Alzheimer's patients. Today's scientists believe that the kidneys process Nike Jacket Womens Fleece

Here's another belief that needs reexamination: Carbohydrates make you fat. Sorry, Dr. Atkins, but carbs don't make you fat.

All that I have read lately seems to suggest that these supplements are fairly useless and cannot substitute for a well balanced, healthy diet. Whole foods are more complex and contain many different micro nutrients not found in supplements. In addition, they provide dietary fiber, and fruits and vegetables also provide phytochemicals.
