Very healthy 29 Chinese wife China Dr via web,Benzoic acid in Sprite will hurt baby. Not on label, no caffeine, She craves Sprite. +++ Sugar but Okay?

Unknown, but...: Drinking soda is ok in older children and in adults, if there is an event such as a birthday party where all the people are drinking some soda. Other than that, no human needs Sprite, Coke, Pepsi,... Soda has no benefits for healthy people. Haven't heard of sodas damaging unborn babies (assuming that's what this question refers to) from the trace ingredients in it, but excess sugar is bad stuff. ...Read more

Dementia pt on pureed food but now can eat regular food. But can not eat fresh fruit unless pureed and thickened. why? He ate whole canned fruit.

Dementia pt on pureed food but now can eat regular food.  But can not eat fresh fruit unless pureed and thickened.  why? 
He ate whole canned fruit.

Difficulty w/ swallo: Somebody must have thought the person your concerned about has difficulty with chewing and or swallowing his food. Then he might get food into his lungs and get an aspiration pneumonia. So he is being fed like a child. I don't know if he has dentures yet but that would be another consideration in feeding issues. Reminds of the old riddle: what walks on 4 ft, then 2 ft, then 3 ft. ...Read more

Cancer cell loves sugar.R  fruits not suitable as cancer patients' diet? Read sum books tat veggie n fruit diet can inhibit cancer cell.Is tat correc?

Not effective: Cancer cells survive by outcompeting your normal cells. They certainly thrive on sugar, but all cells do. If you were to limit sugar, to starve out cancer, you would starve out every other cell as well. Veggie and fruit diets have health benefits but no proven anti-cancer benefits. ...Read more

Eating only 2 wholemeal bread, 1 small pack of jacob's, 3 ordinary biscuit & 4 digestive biscuit for whole day. is it healthy? my friend is on diet.

Eating only 2 wholemeal bread, 1 small pack of jacob's, 3 ordinary biscuit & 4 digestive biscuit for whole day. is it healthy? my friend is on diet.

NOT healthy at all!: I have no idea what jacob's is but everything else your eating is bread/ starches. The healthiest diet (for both weight loss and good health) is to eat mostly vegetables & fruits with healthy protein and to minimize starch. You don't seem to be eating any veggies/fruit & eating mostly starch, the opposite of a healthy diet! My favorite diet is Dr. Fuhrman's Nutritarian- see http://bit.ly/1dHW9hT ...Read more

Is eating the Greek food Saganaki (fried Kasseri Cheese) safe to eat during pregnancy? I have read it's unpasteurized.

Is eating the Greek food Saganaki (fried Kasseri Cheese) safe to eat during pregnancy? I have read it's unpasteurized.

Mixed signals, here: As I imagine you have discovered, this question is a conundrum.General pregnancy advice is to avoid soft, unpasteurized cheeses in pregnancy. While Kasseri is unpasteurized, it is hard and there are many anecdotal reports about eating it safely in pregnancy. The CDC does not include kasseri in its list of cheese to avoid when pregnant:queso fresco/blanco/panela; brie; Camembert; blue-veined; feta ...Read more

Do you think meat and dairy cause cancer and advertisements are a lie about milk n meat being healthy. Is veganism the idle diet for humans?

Do you think meat and dairy cause cancer and advertisements are a lie about milk n meat being healthy. Is veganism the idle diet for humans?

It's complicated: There is strong evidence that meat and dairy can increase cancer risk but not all meat and dairy is created equal. Grass-fed beef without hormones or antibiotics can be healthy in moderation, as is organic chicken,wild salmon,raw cheese from grass-fed cows, organic pastured eggs etc. A vegan diet will have nutrient deficiencies without supplements.See http://tinyurl.com/nq4sx63 for much more info. ...Read more

Wanting to gain muscle, i get my protein from greek yogurt, Special K meal bars w/peanut butter, chicken, turkey. Is that enough? I'm very picky

Wanting to gain muscle, i get my protein from greek yogurt, Special K meal bars w/peanut butter, chicken, turkey. Is that enough? I'm very picky

Yes: You should be fine as long as you are hitting about 50-60gr, which it sounds like you are. Any more than that and you are likely to just urinate it out. Make sure you eat a post workout meal with ~40% carbs and 60% protein balance to maximize muscle gains. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Is it safe to eat 1500 calories during pregnancy since I'm overweight and my new diet is healthy (lean meats, veggies, fruits, whole-grains)?

Is it safe to eat 1500 calories during pregnancy since I'm overweight and my new diet is healthy (lean meats, veggies, fruits, whole-grains)?

Depends: It depends on your current weight and the level of obesity. You should talk to your Ob about it. As long as you take in the essential vitamins and have a good mix of diet choices, you should be fine. I applaud you in taking the initiative to maintain your weight during this critical time of your life. Best Wishes Dr M ...Read more

9mo baby is picky about foods. Loves purees, Cheerios, and cheese, but other types of food are hit or miss. She tries everything but rejects a lot. ?

9mo baby is picky about foods. Loves purees, Cheerios, and cheese, but other types of food are hit or miss. She tries everything but rejects a lot. ?

Keep offering an: array of options. Research shows that kids will eat a balanced diet if you make sure there is a mix of all the major food groups. Don't turn it into a battle, just keep having her try things. Some kids are more sensitive to some smells and tastes. If she is tasting I would not worry. ...Read more

Ate asiago cheese. Its a hard cheese but sources say it's not pasteurized. Label didn't say. Infant in the house. What if we didn't wash hands well?

Cheese: If you or your baby are not ill do not worry. Life vp can be full of what ifs. Sterility around children may be the cause of more asthma and allergies because they are never exposed to anything. My favorite picture of me as a child is sitting out in the yard as a 6 month old eating a dirt clod. Of course life in the late 50's was a lot different. I survived, do the best you can. ...Read more

Is it true that you shouldn't eat sugary foods( bread, jam, chocolate spread, honey...) for breakfast?

Is it true that you shouldn't eat sugary foods( bread, jam, chocolate spread, honey...) for breakfast?

Balanced diet: Sugary foods alone for breakfast, do not give you a balanced nutrition for the rest of the day. A small amount of protien, and fruit fiber will buffer the high sugar content foods and carbohydrates. Honey is different though as it is largely fructose anad other natural sugars and much better than foods with refined white sugar. ...Read more

Does all canned luncheon meat like SPAM harbor listeria? Ate product made with it meant to be cold never warmed. I'm 34w today.

Does all canned luncheon meat like SPAM harbor listeria? Ate product made with it meant to be cold never warmed.  I'm 34w today.

Listeria risks: It can be very difficult to know if a food is contaminated or not with bacteria. For that, mostly, we have to trust the FDA and food inspectors. That said, certain clues can help us avoid foodborne illness. Smell and taste obviously. Also "age" of something after it was opened. Spam direct from can was OK but if it's been in the fridge for a while, toss it. Listeria can grow in the refrigerator. ...Read more
