Age matters: The short answer is yes.

Does ground meat ( a burger) contain any magnesium?

Does ground meat ( a burger) contain any magnesium?

Hardly any: While there may be a tiny trace of magnesium in meat it is not a significant source of magnesium.
Magnesium is the heart of the chlorophyll molecule so leafy greens are the best source, but it is also in nuts, seeds, beans, whole grains, dark chocolate, figs, bananas, yogurt and tofu. Salmon is one of the best animal sources but beef has hardly any.

Are the hormones in milk the same as the hormones in meat? Which are safer?

Are the hormones in milk the same as the hormones in meat? Which are safer?

Different: The main hormone used to produce milk is rbst; it can result in higher levels of insulin-like growth factor (igf) in the milk. I'm more concerned about cocktails of hormones used to fatten cattle for beef including estradiol, progesterone, testosterone, melengesterol, trenbolone, and zeranol. Low-levels remain in the meat at purchase. Effects very controversial. Concern about cancer, infertility. ...Read more

On the news today was the pink slime in ground meat. Is pink slime bad? Is it just the blood and juices that drip off the cutting tables?

On the news today was the pink slime in ground meat. Is pink slime bad? Is it just the blood and juices that drip off the cutting tables?

Probably bad: Pink slime is a phrase that is used to describe food-grade meat trimmings that are used as filler in certain meat products. I believe this has been happening for years. As far as health is concerned, the more processing our food undergoes the less nutritious it becomes until it is just empty calories. The healthiest food is typically freshly harvested and minimally processed. ...Read more

How long cn frozen meat & fish be left out of the freezer for? Left out for 10 mins but also transported for around 15 minutes. Cool day. Still, safe?

Frozen meat/ fish: Was the fish/ meat still frozen to touch after 25 minutes? Was it cold? In general 25 minutes outside of the freezer /refrigerator on a cool day should not have significant pathologic effects . If it had thawed and no ice crystals are present do not return it to the freezer. See below f/u/ w/ doc

Is processed meat without nitrates ok to eat? I brought this turkey deli slices it says it is preserved used "Caramelized sugars" is this safe?

Is processed meat without nitrates ok to eat? I brought this turkey deli slices it says it is preserved used "Caramelized sugars" is this safe?

Just ok: I wouldn't consider any deli meat a healthy option because of the processes needed for preservation. Usually, nitrates are used, which are transformed into nitrites and increase risk of upper GI cancer. Carmelized sugar is an alternative to sodium nitrate, but also carries with it all the adverse health effects associated with any refined sugar. Cooking fresh meat is healthier. ...Read more

I cooked ground beef. But sink and utensils have red meat/blood on them. Chances of e. Coli? How do I clean kitchen after cooking red meat?

Ordinary cleansers: To get "burger E coli", you've got to swallow a good mouthful or two of undercooked, unhygienically-ground burger. The tiny number of nasty E coli bacteria that might actually be present aren't a realistic danger. What's critical is the size of the inoculum. ...Read more

I'm 11 weeks pregnant and wanted to know if it's safe to eat mangolian grill since the meat is sitting out for you to chose and they cook it for you.

I'm 11 weeks pregnant and wanted to know if it's safe to eat mangolian grill since the meat is sitting out for you to chose and they cook it for you.

Yummy: No food is perfectly safe in pregnancy or otherwise. Fortunately, the likelihood of something bad happening as a result of the consumption of well-cleaned, fresh food from a well-run restaurant is very low. In addition, mongolian grill is usually cooked at a high temperature. As long as it's thoroughly cooked, the risks go way down. ...Read more

Are 10-15 gr of goji berries per day safe in pregnancy? So far, I've taken this amount every day (I don't eat meat):is my pregnancy(4 month)in danger?

Unknown, prob. fine: As is often the case, there is little research on this subject. Some people say that goji berries contain betaine (; perhaps other compounds) that can cause miscarriage but if you did not have a miscarriage in the first 3 months it is unlikely now. Others recommend 10 gr/day- see http://www.Thesuperfoods. Net/goji-berry/should-you-take-goji-berries-during-pregnancy I think you should not worry! ...Read more

Can I eat a 4-day-old meat pizza been wraped up in new 2450 pound fridge and been heated up for 3 minutes in a 1000 watt microwave is it safe?

I do the same thing: You remind me of me. If the pizza has no odor, no discoloration, no mold like entity on it, and when you taste it, has no sour/bitter or musty odor and taste, then it is usually ok. Most people would not eat it, but I do. Hahaha, sometimes our being too clean in the us has caused us to lose much of our immunity. Still do things with caution, if unsure, don't do it. ...Read more

It is safe: But what you really need is a well-designed program of diet restriction, education, exercise and weight reduction that you can follow for the rest of your life. Check w/your physician and a good registered dietitian rather than relying on commercial products. Real food is cheaper and healthier. ...Read more

Is it safe to use protein supplements if I don't feel like eating meat during pregnancy?  How much protein should I be eating?

Yes: No need to eat meat to get adequate protein- you can get adequate protein from dairy, eggs, beans, nuts & seeds but if you don't think you are getting enough from those then use a protein supplement. Consider high-quality whey (like whey cool by designs for health), hemp, rice or pea protein. 60 grams a day of protein is recommended during pregnancy. ...Read more
