How to Choose The Healthiest Coconut Water

September 23, 2017 by staff content in Health News with 0 Comments

Is your coconut water as good for you as you think it is?Coconut water is a new and exciting drink on the markets, popping up everywhere from your local convenience store to the hot new bar downtown.

It’s sweet, refreshing and contains a wide array of good for you nutrients and enzymes.

It is often recommended as a substitute for Gatorade and Powerade for athletes that need electrolyte replacement because it has naturally high levels of the electrolytes potassium and magnesium.

Emerging science is also showing that coconut water is beneficial not only as a sports drink, but also benefits our digestive system and brain, having a restorative effect on both.

Are all coconut water healthy?

Not all coconut waters are the same however, some are no better than drinking a can of soda.

This is because of the processes necessary to get it ready for transport, as well as adding preservatives, sweeteners, and flavoring to make it more palatable.

Coconut water from a fresh young coconut is obviously the highest-quality product you can get, but what if you live where coconuts don’t grow?

Take a look at your grocery shelves and you will see scores of different coconut waters.

These are not all created equal, especially the shelf stable ones not found in the refrigerator.

Some have been pasteurized, some have been treated with formaldehyde or other preservatives, and some have added sugar and flavoring in them to mask the taste of low quality coconut water.

Why are some coconut water unhealthy?

Let’s take a look at why these coconut waters aren’t good for you.

Old Coconuts. Many producers of coconut water purchase older coconuts from farms because they’re cheaper and easier to transport.

However, as a coconut gets older, all of those fabulous nutrients seep out of the water and into the flesh (meat) of the coconut.

This is why older coconuts are better used for coconut milk or oil, but are not good for water.

The loss of nutrients also gives the coconut water an acidic taste that needs to be covered up.

Additional Sugar and Natural Flavors. Producers cover up the acidic taste of water that comes from the cheaper, older coconuts by adding sugar, ‘natural flavors’, fruit juice, or all three to the mix.

These additives will make the drink sweeter and more appealing to kids in particular, and can have lasting effects in your body.

Now you’re getting a low-quality drink with fewer nutrients, that also has sugar and other questionable ingredients added to it. Is that something you want to drink?

Pasteurizing. Coconut water is quite perishable and spoils very easily.

Most of the coconut water you buy in the store is pasteurized with high heat.

Basically, it’s boiled until all potential bacteria that would spoil the drink are dead.

This is good, no spoiled drinks making you sick, but pasteurization also kills any nutrients and beneficial enzymes in the coconut water leaving you with merely slightly sweet water.

It also changes the taste of the water, and again you’re back to having to add flavorings or sweeteners to it to make it taste the same as it would fresh from the coconut.

If it’s not in the refrigerated section of the store it’s almost guaranteed that it’s been high-heat pasteurized.

Preservatives. When a producer decides to purchase the coconuts and process them somewhere else the coconuts need to be preserved for transport.

Using this method can only be done with non-organic coconuts, as there are no organic preservatives that would keep the coconuts from spoiling.

Preservation is done in non-organic coconuts by dipping them into a bath of either formaldehyde or sodium metabisulfite.

Formaldehyde is a known carcinogen (something that causes cancer) that is often used to preserve dead bodies.

Sodium metabisulfite is part of the sulfite family, which is known to cause allergic reactions and body-wide inflammation for many people.

The Material Safety Data Sheet for sodium metabisulfite states that it is hazardous if it comes in contact with skin or eyes, and can be an irritant to the upper respiratory tract.

These preservatives can and do seep through the husk and into the meat and the water of the coconut.

The longer the coconut’s journey is the longer the preservatives have to get into your drink, and in turn into your body.

One way that manufacturers get around transporting the whole coconuts is by using coconut water concentrate instead of the water straight from the coconut.

This is done by boiling the coconut water until it becomes a thick syrup.

Water is then added back into the syrup right before it gets packaged for the store.

This syrup is much easier to transport, but again is missing all of the nutrients and enzymes that were killed off by the high heat of the concentrating process.

Using the syrup also makes it very easy for producers to add flavorings and sweeteners to improve the taste, circling back to points one and two.

What coconut water should we drink?

Coconut water has huge health benefits and is a delicious way to replenish the nutrients your body needs.

It’s best when you can drink it straight from a coconut that’s freshly picked, but that’s not possible for a large part of the world.

Buying coconut water in the grocery store is an exercise in reading ingredient labels, but how do you know which one to pick?

Look for the fewest ingredients. Ideally, the only ingredient would be coconut water, but look out for sugars, sweeteners, fruit juice, natural flavors, and concentrates on the ingredient list.

This brings us back to the question ‘is coconut water as good for you as you think it is?’

The short answer is yes, but only if you can find an organic product that doesn’t pasteurize, preserve, or otherwise alter the coconut water.

Your best chance will be to get one that needs to be refrigerated, has a short expiry date, and is labeled organic.

How To Tell If Your Sunglasses Are Really Protecting Your Eyes

September 20, 2017 by staff content in Health News with 0 Comments

Most people understand the importance of slathering on the sun block to protect their skin from the sun’s harmful rays.

But few people realize that your eyes are also vulnerable.

While sunglasses are a trendy fashion choice, getting the correct sunglasses can ensure that your eyes are protected from damage.

First let’s take a look at how the rays can hurt your eyes

How Does Light Work?

Our eyes may be one of the smallest organs, but they are extremely important and complex.

When the sun is too bright, our eyes become vulnerable to the extreme light.

The cornea of our eyes protects the rest of the eye from bright light.

The cornea manipulates the lights so that the rays enter the pupil.

The iris, the colorful part of your eyes, adjusts the size of the pupil to determine how much light reaches our retina.

When the light is intense, the iris of your eyes will make the pupil smaller, and less light will reach the retina.

When the light is low, or you are in the dark, your iris will dilate your pupil and let more light enter into the eye.

If you look directly at the sun without sunglasses, the UV rays contain too much light, and pupils cannot constrict enough.

This allows too much light to go through your pupils, and your retina can be damaged because of it.

However, that’s not the only way the sun can damage your eyes.

If you spend too much time staring at the ultraviolet light rays of the sun, even indirectly, your central vision can become damaged.

Your central vision is what is right in front of you, and you need this for things like texting or driving.

The sun’s rays can also damage your cornea, essentially giving your eye sunburn.

You can get this eye sunburn from being in the sun without protection for too long, or viewing the sun’s reflection on water.

This cornea damage can lead to further damage of the eye, producing blurry vision.

Choosing The Best Sunglasses For Your Eyes

Sunglasses come in all price ranges these days.

Unfortunately, cheap sunglasses may be harmful to your health.

While most cheap sunglasses can be a trendy fashion choice, their lack of UV protection could end up straining your eyes even more.

All sunglasses will filter out ambient light. They can take away the sun’s glare, and cause you to squint less.

The sunglasses will let less light in, so you can see better without the sun glaring into your pupils.

However, this is where cheap sunglasses end.

Because they don’t offer UV protection, your eyes can still be damaged from the sun’s rays.

In addition to this, many people have reported bad headaches from cheap sunglasses because the lenses are often warped, causing your vision to change slightly.

It is like looking through a pair of glasses that are not your prescription, it causes strain to the eye and causes migraines.

If you invest in a quality pair of sunglasses, you can prevent yourself from having harmful side effects to your vision and body.

1. Polarized or not? Many people believe that buying polarized lenses will ensure they are protected from the sun’s rays.

Polarized lenses are mostly used to block intense light that is reflected off flat surfaces like roads and water.

While polarized lenses work great to help cut the glare because they don’t distort your field of vision, they do not add extra protection for your eyes.

It is also very difficult to look at LCD screens when you are wearing polarized lenses too.

If you are getting the sunglasses for driving and water activities, choosing sunglasses with both polarized and UV protection lenses would be ideal.

2. To ensure your eyes are well protected, you need to shop for a pair of glasses that have UV 400+ protection.

This will block out almost 100% of the sun’s UV rays. Some sunglasses would label this as blocking 100% of all UV light.

Do not choose those sunglasses that simply say “absorbs UV”.

3. The best sunglasses may also come with an anti-reflective coating on the backs of the lenses.

Sunlight can come to your eyes from your peripheral vision, above your head, and behind your head.

Normal sunglasses don’t take this into account, and this leaves your eyes unprotected when the sun is above you.

The anti-reflective coating that some sunglasses have on the backs of the lenses can protect your eyes further by blocking the sun from reflecting into your eyes.

4. When choosing a pair of sunglasses, it is better to choose one that has larger frames and closer fitting in order to shield more UV rays.

Good eye protection comes in many shapes and sizes. Sunglasses are made by a lot of different companies that provide both protection and style for the consumer.

Buying a high-quality pair of sunglasses will keep your eyes protected, and they will last much longer than the cheap sunglasses at convenience stores.

While sunglasses are very important in protecting our eyes, we are not able to wear it the entire day or on every situation.

It may even cause headaches in people when they wear for long periods of time.

Is Panera Bread Really Healthy? What Not To Eat

September 17, 2017 by staff content in Health News with 9 Comments

Panera Bread is a very popular spot to grab a meal, but is Panera’s food as healthy as it claims?

They offer a wide variety of foods like soups, sandwiches, and salads, as well as breads and baked goods, and have a reputation for being the healthier choice.

On the surface, all of those options sound healthy and satisfying, but what happens when we dig a bit deeper? Let’s take a look.

First, let’s look at what Panera Bread has done to increase their “healthy” reputation.

In 2015 Panera committed to removing 150 additives from their menu, stating they were concentrating on clean wholesome ingredients going forward.

They define clean as nothing artificial, specifically flavors, colors, preservatives, or sweeteners. Some of the ingredients they removed were:

  • Aspartame
  • Caramel color
  • Nitrates/Nitrites
  • Lard
  • High-Fructose Corn Syrup
  • Monosodium Glutamate (MSG)
  • Sucralose
  • Titanium Dioxide (preservative)

As you can see, that’s just a small list of some pretty scary ingredients that Panera has removed from their menu since 2015.

Does removing those components make Panera’s meals healthier for you though?

You might think so, but you should take a closer look at the ingredients they still use, and the amounts of ‘safe’ ingredients they include before deciding.

Since bread is in the name of the restaurant, lets take a look at Panera’s most popular breads.

The Breads

The always-popular soft dinner roll has 190 calories, which is about even with other brands, but ingredients in their breads like High Heat Milk Solids, and Sorbitan Monostearate (a synthetic wax used as an emulsifier) are questionable, as is the 320mg of sodium in each one.

Moving on to bagels, the number one seller is the Everything bagel, which sells out frequently.

If we take a look at the Pumpkin Pie bagel you’ll find some unfortunate ingredients as well.

Panera uses ‘Cinnamon Flavored Confectionery Chips’ as part of the bagel, which contain Palm Kernel Oil, and ‘natural flavor’.

Palm Kernel Oil is high in saturated fat, which is why bakeries use it in their baked goods, it has a better shelf life.

Natural Flavour is extremely ambiguous, and can include anything from plant or fruit extracts to animal secretions.

Sometimes, it’s not the best ingredients in your breakfast.

The Soups

Lets move on to meals, starting with soups. Tomato soup is a classic comfort food, especially if you pair it with a grilled cheese sandwich.

Panera’s Vegetarian Creamy Tomato soup with croutons is one of the WORST soups to pick on their menu.

It has relatively low calories but makes up for it with 13g of fat and 910mg of sodium.

Even worse is the Vegetarian Autumn Squash soup at 17g of total fat and more than 1200mg of sodium!

Don’t plan on eating anything else today if you eat that, because you might just turn into a raisin from all the sodium.

The Salads

Salads seem like a good choice if you’re concerned about ingredients right?

Well, yes and no.

Salads are one of the easiest things to go overboard on; it’s very simple to pack a salad with ingredients that aren’t so great for you in the name of ‘healthy’.

The thing to note is that restaurants pack salads and salad dressings with TONS of ingredients to make them visually appealing, but are they doing you more harm than good?

The short answer is yes.

Panera’s Southwest Chile Lime Ranch Salad with Chicken has more than 1200mg of sodium when you eat the full serving of dressing as well.

That’s comparable to Wendy’s Dave’s Single Cheeseburger, and the cheeseburger at least has more protein to keep you full!

The salad also has more than 125 ingredients including all of the different dressings and garnishes. 125 ingredients. For a SALAD.

Some of these ingredients include Soybean Oil and/or Canola Oil, all of which are high in saturated fats and often come from genetically modified crops.

Other salads like the Spicy Thai Salad with Chicken are better, but still pack a punch of approximately ½ of your daily sodium allowance and more than 50 ingredients.

What about Sandwiches?

Surely they should have simple ingredients right? Bread, meat, vegetables, maybe some cheese.

Again, you need to take a closer look.

The Roasted Turkey, Apple, and Cheddar sandwich clocks in at 710 calories and 32g of fat.

That’s MORE than the cheeseburger that was referenced above, and is close to being the one of the highest levels on the entire menu.

Once again it’s the sauces and dressings Panera uses on its sandwiches that are the problem. Ingredients like canola oil and soybean oil are again, high in saturated fat and are very processed when refined, and are found in both the dressing used, as well as the turkey meat in the sandwich. What may surprise you is the Classic Grilled Cheese sandwich.

It contains 26g of fat, and a whopping 1580mg of sodium.

You’re asking yourself ‘why?’ right now, and that’s a very good question. In this case, the pasteurized processed American cheese is the problem.

This ‘plastic cheese’ is devoid of almost all of the healthy things about cheese, and adds in preservatives like Sorbitan Monostearate and a whole lot of fat and salt to make it taste good.

These sauces definitely add a level of flavor to your sandwich that you wouldn’t get at home, but is it worth the extra pounds?

Absolutely not.

So what can you eat at Panera bread that will be a healthy choice?

That’s a very good question. If you’re in the mood for a sandwich, swap out the sauces and dressings, and chose something like the Roasted Turkey Cranberry that has less than 400 calories and 12 g of fat, plus an added serving of spinach for some extra protein and fiber.

For soups, there are really no great options.

Skip the soups at Panera all together.

Salads are much easier to modify in a healthy way.

Ask for the dressing on the side and have a tablespoon or two instead of drowning the bowl with it.

Even the Cesar salad with Chicken isn’t a terrible option if you leave off most of the dressing.

At the end of the day, Panera is a chain restaurant like any other, and they make menu choices based on maximum flavor and visual appeal.

While their commitment to using clean ingredients is admirable, they lose major points for the hidden ingredients they still use, and the high sodium and fat in many of their dishes.

If you make good, informed choices about the food you put into your bodies, both at home and when eating out, you will achieve your health goals in no time at all.

Why You Should Never Order Restaurant Ice

September 14, 2017 by staff content in Health News with 2 Comments

One of the greatest pleasures in life is going out to eat. You get great food and you don’t have to cook! However, there are many items at restaurants that could cause harm to our health if we are not careful.

Sometimes, it is the items you think are the most innocent that are the most harmful.

One of these items is ice, and if ice machines are not cleaned properly the amount of bacteria within them could cause serious illnesses.

Ice comes standard at every restaurant, whether it be fast food of high dining.

The problem with having ice in your drink is the harmful bacteria that is often found within the ice.

A study showed that 6 out of 10 restaurants ice machines had higher levels of bacteria than their own toilet water.

We would never drink the toilet water from a restaurant, but we blindly drink and chew on the ice in the drinks given to us.

Ice Can Lead To Illness

Ice machines aren’t something restaurants think they need to clean very often.

The problem with ice machines is they can create mold like any other appliance.

The constantly wet environment makes ice machines the perfect atmosphere for mildew and mold to grow.

Some may think that ice machines are too cold to harbor harmful bacteria, but that is far from the truth.

In fact, some of the most dangerous bacteria is able to survive in the cold of ice machines.

Ice machines can harbor E. coli, Shigella, Cholera, Typhoid fever, Legionella, Hepatitis A, Salmonella, and Norwalk virus.

These illnesses can be life threatening if not caught and treated quick enough.

The bacteria grows very fast, as well. Populations of bacteria can double every 10 minutes, leading to an unstable outbreak within the ice machine.

And since these ice machines aren’t cleaned near as often as they should be, the bacteria sticks around.

If the restaurant you are going to uses a hand scooper for ice, the levels of bacteria become much higher.

This ice is also subject to fecal matter, which comes with its own host of illnesses.

Avoiding the Bacteria

The best way to avoid the bacteria is to stop ordering ice from restaurants. Unfortunately, most restaurants are unaware of their problems with the bacteria filled ice.

In order to protect you from harmful illnesses, avoiding ice is best. Most drinks are already stored in a cool area, so you while you may not get something ice cold, it won’t be lukewarm either.

Ice mold and bacteria isn’t only left to restaurant freezers. Bacteria and mold can also occur in your own household.

If you are trying to remember the last time you cleaned your ice machine, it has been too long.

Your ice machine should be cleaned every three months.

To clean your ice machine, unplug your icemaker. Never try to work on the ice while it is still running.

Once it is unplugged, remove the icemaker and wash it with warm water and mild dish soap. If possible, run the different parts from the icemaker in a sanitizing cycle in the dishwasher.

If you cannot sanitize your icemaker in the dishwasher, wipe it down with a water and vinegar mixture.

Try one part vinegar to five parts water. You also need to wipe down the inside of the freezer with this water and vinegar mixture.

Some ice machines will have a cleaning cycle built in. If so, run this cleaning cycle once and then dump out the ice it made.

While it can seem like it takes awhile to clean out your ice machine, the benefits to your health are worth it.

By properly sanitizing your ice machine you prevent harmful bacteria and mold build up.

These bacteria are severe enough that they could cause a fatal illness.

Always avoid restaurant ice, especially from fast food restaurants. If you avoid the ice at all costs, and properly clean your own ice machine, you can avoid these harmful bacteria completely.

Is Your Organic Milk Really Organic?

September 11, 2017 by staff content in Health News with 0 Comments

Organic foods have recently become a major part of supermarket shelves.

You can find almost any food, whether produce or processed, in an “organic” version.

So what does “organic” mean? According to the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), “USDA certified organic foods are grown and processed according to federal guidelines addressing, among many factors, soil quality, animal raising practices, pest and weed control, and use of additives.

Organic producers rely on natural substances and physical, mechanical, or biologically based farming methods to the fullest extent possible.”

Essentially, food production is held to a higher standard in order to earn the coveted “organic” label.

With this in mind, let’s talk about the difference between conventional and organic milk.

Because milk is an animal byproduct, many factors must be taken into consideration when determining if it may be labeled as organic.

Again, according to the USDA, “The USDA organic label on dairy or meat products means that the animals from which it originated were raised in living conditions that accommodated their natural behaviors without being administered hormones or antibiotics, and while grazing on pasture grown on healthy soil.

Then during processing, the meat or dairy product was handled in a facility that was inspected by an organic certifier and processed without any artificial colors, preservatives, or flavors before being packaged to avoid contact with any prohibited, nonorganic substances.”

Practically, this means several things. First, organic food is usually fresher because preservatives are not one of the ingredients. Fewer and more natural pesticides are used.

This means that all fungicides, insecticides and herbicides are not used because they tend to remain on and in the food.

Growth hormones, antibiotics and animal byproducts in their food are all prohibited for cows providing organic milk.

Antibiotics given regularly to livestock increases the likelihood of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, and feeding animal byproducts can increase the risk of mad cow disease in livestock.

Instead, cows are required to graze in open spaces for at least a certain amount of time. Going along with this, all food consumed by these cows must be GMO-free.

They cannot be fed foods that are genetically modified or genetically engineered.

In 2016, one study showed that organic milk had a greater amount of nutrients than conventional milk.

A study published by the American Dairy Science Association indicates that organic cow milk contains higher levels of vitamins, antioxidants and unsaturated fatty acids than conventional milk.

Because of all these standards, organic farming tends to be environmentally beneficial.

Using natural methods for farming means there is less pollution, better water conservation, less energy use, less soil erosion and better soil fertility.

Clearly, there are standards that are to be upheld in order for your milk to be considered organic, but how often do organic dairy companies uphold those standards to the highest degree?

Questionable Practices

Peter Whoriskey is a journalist who spent time investigating the organic farming practices of Aurora Organic Dairy, a company that provides organic milk to large retailers.

What he found was pretty interesting. During his investigation, he found that while they followed the protocol for allowing cows to have access to grazing pastures, out of 15,000 cows, only a couple hundred cows were ever out grazing at a time; the rest were in feedlots. While this might not be the case on every organic farm, it does raise questions about large, organic dairy farm practices.

The way that the USDA qualifies farmers as organic farmers may also be a point of concern.

Instead of the USDA sending out their own certifiers, the dairy farmers will hire their own inspectors who then certify them and report back to the USDA.

These inspectors visit the farm once a year to examine the standards.

This method of certification could raise questions because the certifier is paid by the dairy farm to report to the USDA.

They are not paid by the USDA for an objective report. As an example, Whoriskey discovered that the certifier who investigates Aurora Organic Dairy found that the visit takes place outside of grazing season, meaning the certifier does not even see the farm during grazing season—the time of the year that plays a big role in whether or not a farm can obtain “organic” status.

Horizon Organic milk, another popular store-bought brand of organic milk, has been found to implement some sneaky advertising.

According to their cartons, they contain DHA Omega-3, an omega-3 that supports brain health.

You would expect that there is increased omega-3 in their product due to better farming and grazing practices.

After all, some studies do show some increase of omega-3 in milk from cows that graze regularly, but this is not the cause in Horizon’s milk.

Instead, they actually add an omega-3-containing oil produced by algae that is fed with corn-syrup.

Apart from the gross-factor, there is hardly any GMO-free corn in the United States causing you to wonder if the corn-syrup fed to the algae is GMO-free.

If it is not, this seems like a violation of the non-GMO aspect of organic standards.

As you can see, just because something is labeled “organic” does not necessarily mean it is of a higher quality or is a result of better practices than conventional dairy farms.

Why it’s important to buy local

While not all small, organic dairy farms may uphold perfect standards, many of them will have better farming practices than the big farms simply because they have fewer cows to feed.

This allows for more grazing throughout grazing season and quicker milking times.

Buying organic milk from local farmers also gives you the opportunity to visit their farms to see their farming practices for yourself and get to know their passion for organic farming.

How to determine the quality of your organic milk

If you want to really know the quality of your milk and how closely the farm it comes from follows organic standards, but you cannot personally visit the farm, you can look at the code on a house brand carton of milk.

Aurora Organic Dairy’s code is 08-29, and other house brand codes will be four or five numbers. With this information, you can research the farm and determine if they follow protocol to your satisfaction.

Another good resource is the Cornucopia Institute.

They are major advocates for family farming, and state that “…through research and investigations on agricultural and food issues, [the Cornucopia Institute] provides needed information to family farmers, consumers and other stakeholders in the good food movement and to the media.

We support economic justice for the family-scale farming community – partnered with consumers – backing ecologically produced local, organic and authentic food.”

Always research the brands of milk you are interested in purchasing if you choose to buy organic milk so that you may know that your milk is of the highest quality!
