Ingredients: potato powder, potato starch, modified food starch, vegetable oil. Is it healthy?

Ingredients: potato powder, potato starch, modified food starch, vegetable oil. Is it healthy?

REALLY UNHEALTHY!!!: This is recipe for disaster. Potatoes are in the environmental working group's dirty dozen foods-they're high in pesticides if not organic & are readily converted to sugar so raise blood sugar, causing weight gain & increased risk of diabetes. Generic "vegetable oil" is almost certainly corn, soy or canola which are all gmo if not organic & very toxic, fried potatoes have carcinogenic acrylamides. ...Read more

Are BPA-free canned food safe to eat?

Are BPA-free canned food safe to eat?

Not necessarily: While BPA is hazardous because of its hormone-disrupting estrogenic effects, the problem is that cans without BPA use alternatives like BPF, BPS, vinyl and polyester that may be as or more toxic than BPA and it is hard to learn what alternatives are being used!

Any suggestions on which is healthier vegan food or fish diet?

Any suggestions on which is healthier vegan food or fish diet?

Educate yourself: A vegan diet is extremely dangerous if you do not know exactly what you are doing and supplement accordingly. Adding fish makes its safer. Despite all the grandstanding, there's little (some would say no) strong evidence that either offers health (as opposed to the very real moral) benefits when we control for other healthy lifestyle considerations. ...Read more

Is eating canned fish healthy or unhealthy ?

Is eating canned fish healthy or unhealthy ?

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

A Hot Subject: Yes,maybe.Harvard scientists found t the body uses more energy in digesting raw food than it does cooked food; that more of the energy available from raw food is lost to bacteria in our gut than is the case with cooked food, and that the body expends energy fighting off pathogens that are more prolific in raw food than in cooked.Who'd-a thunk?Also,strictly speaking hot food contains more calories. ...Read more

Aren't foods healthier microwaved instead of fried?

Aren't foods healthier microwaved instead of fried?

For the most part: If you fry foods at too low a temperature or put too much food in the pan it will lengthen the time it takes to cook and will cause the food to absorb more fat from the oils. Some oils are less healthy than others. Studies support the notion that fried foods increase the risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease. Frying in a canola oil for very brief time at high temp may be less harmful. ...Read more

Is gluten free pasta ( maize starch, soy flour, potato starch and rice starch)with about 40 gm carbohydrates good for cholesterol ?

Is gluten free pasta ( maize starch, soy flour, potato starch  and rice starch)with about 40 gm carbohydrates good for cholesterol ?

Does not matter: Since 90% of the cholesterol is produced by the body regardless of your diet, the above would not noticeably affect your cholesterol level. Do note that too much carb may not be good for your health. I don't believe extreme diet does anyone any good. Just eat anything in moderation and exercise at least 3 hrs a week will likely keep you in better shape. ...Read more
