Heart Risk, Cancer and Trans Fats

Esher, United Kingdom (PressExposure) March 01, 2012 -- "If you drink more than two sugar sweetened drinks, including those popular flavored waters, per day, a new study finds you might be higher risk for developing diabetes and heart disease, even if you aren't adding any weight from enjoying these popular, and tasty beverages." Says Kirsten Whittaker, editor of the DHB. She also added, "The sweetened beverage drinkers also had more belly fat, but not more weight than the non-drinkers."

Being inactive has been linked with an estimated 100,000 cases of cancer each year according to new estimates. It's becoming more obvious all the time that activity (and inactivity) plays a significant role in the development of cancers. We know that exercising as part of your daily routine has long been linked with lower risks of some cancers. How much time we spend sitting has been less well studied, until recently that is.

Let's face it, it can be hard to resist foodie temptations. Things you know in your head are not good for your heart or your waistline, but that doesn't seem to matter as you give in to temptation.

Many believe that the good feeling that comes from eating these trans fat laden foods will last and last. In fact, according to research the good feeling that comes from indulgence in treats doesn't linger for long. Intriguing that the higher trans fat intake was linked to higher levels of depression, and the lowest scores on exams created to measure quality of life.

Becoming more important these days is how your home smells... candles that fill a room with the fragrance of home baked goodies, or air fresheners that leave a room filled with the refreshing outdoor scent of pine. These products add a subtle something to the air for some, while triggering uncomfortable allergy (and possibly asthma) symptoms for others.

Scented products emit VOCs (volatile organic compounds), defined as chemicals that form a gas or vapor when at room temperature. Some of the VOCs in air fresheners include formaldehyde, petroleum distillates, benzene, styrene, terpenes, alcohol, phosphates, bleach and even ammonia.

Important news for IBS patients. Australian researchers have found that a low FODMAP diet might help to ease symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), though it may not work for everyone. IBS affects almost 55 million, mostly female, Americans and brings symptom like cramping, bloating and stomach distension, stomach pain, excess gas, nausea, diarrhea, constipation and fatigue, so this could be exciting news for sufferers.
