Doctor insights on:
Eating Stale Food
Of course: It depends on your desire to change. For a healthy diet, eat a mixed diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils, low fat milk products; low in saturated fats; no tobacco, and no more than one drink a day. It would help to exercise 30 minutes/day. ...Read more
Not likely: It's more likely to prevent it, as microwaves can heat up food to a point such that harmful bacteria or their toxins are inactivated/killed. There is a rare chance if you are using non-microwave safe dishes, that microwaving could lead to toxic substances leaching into your food which could cause gastrointestinal upset/food poisoning. ...Read more
"Heartburn": Gastroesophageal reflux disease is a common cause of such symptoms ("heartburn"). If it's in the right side of your abdomen - it can also be due to gallbladder stones/other problems. What happens when you don't eat such foods? If improved, then avoid them. If you are having difficulty swallowing, black tarry stools, weight loss, or noticed any bleeding from your rectum- see a doctor immediately ...Read more
No: Sugary foods give rise to taste only. ...Read more
Mostly not: Most food gets stale from drying and fat oxidation. Some get stale from outright spoilage growing mold and bacterial contamination. The dry, fat oxdidated food might taste unpleasant but is not harmful. But the spoiled food should be discarded as it might contain toxins or bacterial that could be harmful. ...Read more
Anisakiasis: Anisakiasis is the principal "worm" infestation of the stomach, caused by ingesting anisakis larvae in raw or undercooked fish. Within a few hours, there is severe upper abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting (relieved after endoscopic removal of worm). As you know, raw fish (sushi, sashimi) are increasingly popular--choose carefully your source of fish (farm raised, not wild caught) & food preparer. ...Read more
STRANGE QUESTION: There are other possibilities. How about fat eating less and skinny eating well? If self control and self image are problems, consider a therapist. If this is the top of the iceberg in a problem filled life, consider a therapist and get help in taking control and sorting them out. ...Read more
Both!: I've not read any studies that suggest that timing of fruit consumption makes a difference relative to your non-fruit intake. In other words, enjoy your fruit w/o worrying about when you eat, assuming that it doesn't affect your normal appetite. Strive for 5 servings of fruit plus an additional 5 servings of veggies each day. Try not to count store bought juices as you're missing fiber content. ...Read more
Possibly: One potential source could be rancid butter on the popcorn. ...Read more
Home meals healthy: Meals prepared properly at home are probably the most healthy you can regulate how much salt, fats and other ingredients go into your meals. You also choose the ways they are prepared and the proportion sides you want. So it would be best if possible to prepare your own meals at home. ...Read more
Get to urgent care: Go to an ER if needed - this can be serious untreated and relatively simple if treated well. Don't think about it - go! We who attain a certain age need to be careful if we want it to go on increasing well. ...Read more
Sushi contamination: People can get food poisoning from any fish that isn't fresh, just like they can get it from any food left out too long. Raw fish can also carry parasites, like raw meat can. That's why we learned to cook foods, one has to presume. Just googling sushi safety brings up salmonella and botulism reports. http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2011/10/27/2-investigators-is-your-sushi-safe/. ...Read more
Diarrhea subsides: Stay on clear liquids until the diarrhea subsides. It is important to avoid dehydation so liquids are a must. After the diarrhea stops, go back slowly over a 24 hour time span using toast, fruits.Avoid vegetables, nuts and legumes for a few days after food poisoning since their high-fiber content makes them difficult to digest, and they can cause gas. Spicy foods and sauces can also aggravate. ...Read more
Wife nauseous w/ food aversions. Crave lean meat, salty food, and choc. No chkn,pork,fish. Headache/Nausea leaves w/ right food. PregTest=No,whats up?
I would say it is: unhealthy due to the amount of salt/brine that is used as well as any spice/preservatives for packaging purposes. You would have to convince me very well to eat canned tuna instead of fresh tuna, though I understand they are used for different purposes in cooking. Any extra salt is detrimental to our blood vessels and promotes hypertension, stroke, and heart attacks. ...Read more
