googling around, I've heard it claimed by various sites that non-alcoholic beer is healthy and potentially even healthier than straight beer.
The claims are:
1] hops induce sedation
2] studies have shown that nonalc beer has reduced stress in nuns
3] (which I find controversial) Recent evidence has overturned the idea that ethanol is responsible for heart health from drinking; the true cause are Polyphenols, supposedly more abundant in nonalc drinks
Can you guys sort this out for me? Is it healthier to drink nonalc? Is it actually a lifestyle risk not to drink alcohol? I've heard varying responses from people on the subject
Instead of the typical salad- lettuce/spinach/greens and some vegetables and what not- have you ever tried a berry salad?
I usually use a bunch of spinach as a base and throw on blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries or whatever kind of berries I happen to have at the time. Dress it with nothing but a drizzle of olive oil. Sometimes I add mandarin orange slices and crushed walnuts, sometimes even raw cacao nibs, it's phenomenal!
All that additional Vitamin C helps with the absorption of the nutrients in the spinach too, most notably the iron. It tastes great, it's great for you, and I find it can help add diversity to my salads!
Scotland has some of the worst lice infestations in the world, and last year saw production fall for the first time in years. But in the past few weeks it has become clear that the lice problem is growing worldwide and is far more resistant than the industry thought. Norway produced 60,000 tonnes less than expected last year because of lice, and Canada and a dozen other countries were all hit badly. Together, it is estimated that companies across the world must spend more than £1bn a year on trying to eradicate lice, and the viruses and diseases they bring.
As a result of the lice infestations, the global price of salmon has soared, and world production fallen. Earlier this year freedom of information [FoI] requests of the Scottish government showed that 45 lochs had been badly polluted by the antibiotics and pesticides used to control lice – and that more and more toxic chemicals were being used.
So I understand the difference between added sugar and natural sugar. I BELIEVE I read that the liver can burn upwards of 40g per day of natural sugar before it's stored into fat (clarification would be awesome)
Also, is sugar in milk considered natural? I used to think no but have recently found that it does offer benefits Thanks for any clarification!
