"When you get into this argument about sugar in the diet, you also have to look at the type of food that has a high sugar content," said Jo Ann Hattner, a San Francisco registered dietitian who teaches nutrition courses at Stanford. "Those foods have few nutrients and little fiber, and that's not good for you. So is it sugar itself that's harmful?" That said, Hattner added, there's no doubt that people in general consume too much sugar and that everyone could benefit from eating less - and especially looking out for "hidden" sugars in their diets.
What If I Ate Only One Type of Food? by Natalie Wolchover, Life's Little Mysteries Staff Writer. 27 January 2012 Link
"... what would actually happen if you ate only one type of food for your entire life? Depends on the poison you pick, but poison it most likely would be. According to Jo Ann Hattner... choosing to eat only one fruit, vegetable or grain would lead to organ failure. Consuming only meat would eventually force your body to start munching on your own muscles. And if you stuck solely to almost any one food (besides fruit), you would develop a serious case of scurvy."
USA Swimming TOP FIVE FOODS TO BOOST IMMUNITY 1/24/2012 BY CHRIS ROSENBLOOM, PHD, RD, CSSD Link
Winter brings more than its share of cold and flu viruses. The average young person gets anywhere from 6 to 10 colds a year, and the dry heat of winter air and close proximity to others means it is easier to spread those nasty germs. Instead of heading to the medicine cabinet, try the kitchen cabinet to find foods rich in the nutrients that keep your immune system strong all winter long.
Probiotic foods (those foods that contain good bacteria for a healthy gut) can enhance immunity. Your guts contain 2 to 3 pounds of bacteria and emerging research shows that the type of bacteria that live in your gastrointestinal tract can prevent disease by acting as a natural antibiotic. Registered dietitian Jo Ann Hattner, author of Gut Insight (www.gutinsight.com) points out that 70% of our immune function takes place in the gut so eating foods rich in probiotics is a good idea to stay healthy.
