Health: For Smarter Nutrition (02)
This site says that a recent study conducted Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School found that previous recommendations to limit dairy products in an effort to reduce the risk of kidney stones were not accurate. There were more than 90,000 women in the study, which showed "that women with the highest intake of dietary calcium had the lowest risk of kidney stones." Researchers say that calcium neutralizes the absorption of oxalate, a substance that is present in foods such as spinach and beets which has been linked to kidney stone formation. It includes a list of foods to avoid, which include peanut oil, soft drinks, tea, cocoa, green peppers, beans and beets.
There is a growing body of evidence proving that type-2 diabetes, hypertension and cardiac disease, deadly as they are, can be reversed through proper nutrition.

The problem is, there are scores of conflicting nutritional advice readily available online. This website aims to present studies and researches about the connection between nutrition and various diseases through articles, podcasts, and short videos that are very easy to understand.
This 2004 article says that a renowned researcher estimates that 70 percent of colon cancers could be prevented with just moderate changes in diet and lifestyle. One prime suspect now is insulin resistance. In this condition, higher levels of insulin circulate because the body is less responsive to it. Insulin and related growth factors seem to change cell processes in ways that promote the development of cancer. The article also says that consuming enough calcium is the latest approach to lower the risk of colon cancer. It cites a recent study looked at the recurrence of colon polyps, which are noncancerous growths that have the ability to turn into cancer. Polyp recurrence was 29 percent lower with a higher consumption of calcium and vitamin D, the article says.

The mind set has to do with using the mind to create challenges, interacting with people, controlling anger, avoiding stress and living within one's means.Phyical action has to do with being pro-active with physical symptoms and getting medical tests.
