What are other supplements giving to farm animals that are causing obesity for people ingesting these foods?

Obesity: Possibly, but the majority of obesity comes from all of the bad food that we eat in the us (fast food, soda, desserts, candy, chips, etc) and the massive quantities that we eat (supersize, all you can eat buffets, etc), and lack of exercise (everyone drives in the us instead of walking/biking and we are couch potatoes).

Are there ways to prevent appendicitis before it happens? In terms of food etc

Are there ways to prevent appendicitis before it happens? In terms of food etc

No: Having an appendix puts anyone at risk of appendicitis. It does not appear to be related to certain foods. It is more common in males and at around the age of 10-11 years so there is likely a relationship with growth and underlying anatomy as it does concentrate in families. There are underlying diseases that make appendicitis more likely. As far as I know nothing will prevent it from occurring. ...Read more

Is there some issue with consuming any kind of meat if i suffer from gastric reflux.

Is there some issue with consuming any kind of meat if i suffer from gastric reflux.

GERD/meat: If you have gerd, you need to eat smaller meal portions and increase the frequency. Avoid hard to digest foods. Some of the meat is hard to digest and might stay in the stomach longer, which will increase chance of acid reflux. Beef is more difficult to chew to smaller particles than chicken. There is no absolute issue regarding a specific kind of meat to gerd. ...Read more

On average, how long does food take to move through the digestive tract? Are there any foods that are prone to getting "stuck" and causing upset?

On average, how long does food take to move through the digestive tract? Are there any foods that are prone to getting "stuck" and causing upset?

Hours to Days: Common GI transit times, from foods labeled with radio-tracer elements, vary from a few hours up to about 3 days, with a day or two common. We normally add about 7 liters of water (from the blood stream) to what is ingested, so that the food becomes a thin watery soup in order to facilitate digestion; enzymes can only get to what is suspended, with a large surface area, in a thin watery solution. ...Read more

Are there any foods that toddlers can't eat or shouldn't eat because of the possibility of allergies?

Are there any foods that toddlers can't eat or shouldn't eat because of the possibility of allergies?

No: For every study suggesting that a food should be delayed, there's another showing that there is no reason to delay it. At the most recent world allergy congress where all of these data worldwide were presented, the consensus is that there is no consensus; the only reliable recommendation that could be made is that food allergy is less likely to develop in infants who are breastfed for 6-9 months. ...Read more

Are there certain foods I should avoid or eat more of to help control my psoriasis?

Diet & psorriasis: There are no studies showing any clear relationship between dietary consumption and psorriasis. Various commercial entities have offered 'miracle' diets for psorriasis, but they are completely unproven. Eat a normal healthy diet with 5 servings of fruits and vegetables a day. Reducing stress (ie. Taking time to relax daily) will give you more relief from psorriasis than any diet will. ...Read more

What are some vitamin and/or mineral deficiencies that can occur from not eating product with gluten in them or for eating gluten free?

What are some vitamin and/or mineral deficiencies that can occur from not eating product with gluten in them or for eating gluten free?

Unaware of any: Gluten is not essential for your nutrition. However the potential nutritional issue may be from restricting your diet too much leading to other deficiencies unrelated to gluten. I think gluten intolerance is over emphasized at this time and you should consult your doctor to make sure that you indeed have this problem. Often a simple blood test may provide you the answer. ...Read more

Are there any health food store teas I should avoid if some kidney damage from hypertension at 80?

Are there any health food store teas I should avoid if some kidney damage from hypertension at 80?

Suggest all: The stuff in healthfood store has not been validated in an official way. If we see sometimes research fraud in medicine, we should expect lots more in non regulated industry like healthfood. No need to try non-formally tested stuff. You are 80 and have done well so far. Keep it this way. Control bp with low salt & meds if needed. Remember, studies show daily multivitamins not being good for us. ...Read more
