BACON IS BAD! BEEF CAUSES CANCER!?

According to a new report by the World Health Organisation, Bacon is BAD! More accurately, the study says that processed meats like hot dogs, sausages and bacon can cause colon cancer and red meat is also a likely cause of the disease, World Health Organisation experts say, in a potentially heavy blow for the global meat industry.

The analysis of 800 studies from around the world by the International Agency for Research on Cancer – IARC – found “sufficient evidence in humans that the consumption of processed meat causes colorectal cancer”.

“Each 50-gram portion of processed meat eaten daily increases the risk of colorectal cancer by 18 per cent,” it said in a statement.

The category includes meat that has been salted, cured, fermented or smoked, hot dogs, sausages, corned beef, dried meat like beef jerky or South African biltong, canned meat or meat-based sauces.

The finding supports “recommendations to limit intake of meat” particularly in processed forms, the IARC said  :: Read the full article »»»»


CHRONIC! Australia to Legalise Cannabis

CHRONIC! Australia to Legalise CannabisAustralia’s Government has announced it will legalise the growing of cannabis for medicinal purposes.

Health Minister Sussan Ley says the Government wants to give people suffering from debilitating illnesses access to all of the most effective medical treatments, including medical cannabis.

The minister said she had been moved by stories of people who get relief from the currently restricted drug, sometimes legally imported but not always. However, Ms Ley said the legalisation was only about medicinal cannabis, not recreational use.

“This is not a debate about legalisation of cannabis. This is not about illicit drugs. This is not a product you smoke. This has nothing to do with that,” Ms Ley said. “Most commonly the product is an oil or a tincture that you put on your skin.”

A progressive government in Victoria looks to have that state as the nation’s first onboard, the state Government plans to embark on a cannabis cultivation trial, based on the recommendations of a report by the Victorian Law Reform Commission :: Read the full article »»»»


REBLOG! What’s the Biggest Killer? DIET! Overtaking 3rd World Disease

Posted: September 24th, 2015 | Author: | Filed under: Health News, The Organic Gourmet | Tags: , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on REBLOG! What’s the Biggest Killer? DIET! Overtaking 3rd World Disease

Scientists figured out the biggest contributor to early deaths across the world25 years ago, in 1990, maternal and child malnutrition, unsafe drinking water and sanitation were the leading risks for death. Today, unsurprisingly, poor diet has overtaken third world problems as the biggest contributor to early death around the world.

According to new analysis from the leading authority on global disease diet is the second highest (clearly aside from age) killer.

Smoking cigarettes still carries the highest risk factor of premature death, followed by high blood pressure and obesity.

However, the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation – IMHE – says that a combination of dietary factors, from eating too few fruits and vegetables, nuts, and whole grains to too much sodium and cholesterol, is taking a toll on health across the globe.

The IMHE’s study found that the largest contributor to early death globally is high blood pressure, in which age and family history partly play a roll, but so do obesity, smoking, excessive salt consumption, lack of exercise, and drinking large amounts of alcohol.

Noteworthy, alcohol is also one of the top 10 risk factors associated with the highest number of deaths for both men and women.

The study looked at 14 dietary risk factors. Cumulatively, unhealthy eating, including diets low in fruit, whole grains, and vegetables, and diets high in red meat and sugar-sweetened beverages contributed to more deaths than any other factor, causing ischemic heart disease, stroke and diabetes :: Read the full article »»»»

Australian women not meeting nutritional needs during pregnancy, Adelaide University study suggestsAustralian women are not meeting their nutritional requirements during pregnancy despite most believing they are eating the right foods, an Adelaide University study has found.

The study examined the eating habits of 850 pregnant women from across Australia and whether they were following the Australian Dietary Guidelines. Results showed none of the women involved were correctly following the pregnancy nutrition guidelines, but 61 percent mistakenly thought they were.

Several other studies have indicated a lack of health knowledge amongst pregnant women, including drinking alcohol, though the blame doesn’t always lie with the mother. Pregnant women have long been told the zero-tolerance approach to drinking is their best bet, another report highlighting the inconsistencies in information provided to expectant mothers

One study found that up to 80 per cent of women questioned in Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom reported drinking alcohol while pregnant :: Read the full article »»»»


Australian Grocery Giant Fined Over False Advertising

Posted: July 2nd, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: The Organic Gourmet | Tags: , , , , , , | Comments Off on Australian Grocery Giant Fined Over False Advertising

Australian organic retail NewsAustralian supermarket behemoth Coles has paid multiple fines totalling $AU61,200 for allegedly misleading consumers about the origin of some of its fresh produce. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission – ACCC – says Helping Australia Grow signs were hung above imported navel oranges, kiwi fruit, asparagus and almonds.

The ACCC said that the well known – and universally accepted accreditation of locally produced fare – the triangular Australian Grown symbol was also misused. The watchdog said the display gave the impression the imported fruit had been locally grown.

Coles advised the ACCC that the misconduct arose out of the relocation of stock within stores without updating the promotional imagery on the price boards. The ACCC nevertheless considered action was necessary given the importance consumers place on representations of this kind, and the importance of strong compliance processes when choosing to make such claims in the context of a widespread campaign :: Read the full article »»»»
